It's like they've gathered up the dregs of the party and shuffled them off to the back room (which no one knows the location of exactly) and allow them to do what ever they want whilst they get on with running the "respectable" bar out the front to the new clientele.

They've even taken away the favicon.

prepping surely wouldn't be a bad idea, in case they decide to pull the rug out from under us without notice.

Perhaps a temporary "free" forum until something better could be figured out/funded.

my idea was "inthecrapper", logo being a toilet containing an upside down ITM logo of some kind

couple of issues I can think of

control - redditors hijacking it, or the sub getting reported/deleted for some reason without any notice,
also trolling of members, no way of being able to identify a person who is being a ****/bringing up past nasty personal stuff/grievances under an alias.

btw, i just had a look through the settings and you can change it so it just shows posts sorted by 'new' or 'old' so the thread discussions would just be like here and upvotes wouldnt dictate the hierarchy. also pretty sure you can turn downvotes off. and i'm pretty sure you can do a lot of stuff with css with flairs and the style of the sub. and as for the trolling aspect, there are settings in the moderation window for making things private or invite needed to post (if it came to that). i dont really think thats going to be an issue though. we put up with jarrard (and me frankly) for nearly a decade. cant get worse than that.

Reddit lacks the archival nature of forums though - no ability to bump old discussions, shit search functionality, etc. As a posting with pals option, it is one. But I don't want to cut and run yet. And when I do, I'd rather we had a forum to go to.

Reddit has account APIs and shit. Wonder if there's a whynotboth option?

Edit- trizzlesniped. Interesting info.

i think if you go the separate forum options you're going to lose most people. we're just going to forget it exists entirely. thats the biggest plus about reddit, we're all there already. if we forget, theres still a chance something pops up on our timeline. if youre checking out other subs, theres more of a chance you'll think about checking the itm one while youre there. theres no need to commit to an itm sub either. as opposed to a separate skogforums.net which if it doesnt have constant posts, its dead on arrival. if someone checks it every day for a week and theres no posts, theyre not likely to ever come back. but if youre subbed on reddit, you'll still be going back to the site everyday (or every few minutes if youre me) which increases the likelihood of you still checking on the itm sub or even better, posting in the itm sub.

plus like you said, there are reddit APIs, which knowing RWS, which will mean we get some sort of automated carlin bot thing at some point that posts hacker memes and communist propaganda.

To be fair, you haven't been posting much on ITM in the past year, and kind of sound as if you're pretty much over forums as a whole.

For me, if reddit weren't extremely popular and a huge source of content - I wouldn't use it. Its ugly and has an annoying awful UI

Better to be organised and do shit before it implodes, there's no communication between front and back of house.

If ITM were a restaurant reality show Gordon Ramsay would be having a brain embolism and running out the front door right now.


And ITM even in it's uglyness and brokeness is still less annoying use than reddit

Imagine what a forum with someone as capable as RWS at the helm could be.

i dont get it though. you can just view the subreddit. rws does the css. posts are set to display by order just like here. and in terms of usability i'm not quite sure what you guys are struggling with? someone posts a topic. you hit comments. then hit reply. if you install reddit enhancement suite, it automates a lot of shit like looking at photos and youtubes and soundclouds.

compared to here where half the functions are broken, status updates need a mod to change. avatars are hidden somewhere in a social network backend thing, videos need a special format to be posted. and the site doesnt even really work on mobile.

i've used both sites extensively and i dont see how you can say this one is better by any measure besides larrikan-ness. i think you've just gotten used to the shit here and havent used reddit much and its unfamiliarity scares you.
