Honestly forums are a dinosaur waiting to die now.. with things like G+, Facebook and now Discord, people don't come to forums much anymore.

Yes, I agree, but I still prefer forums. I guess that makes me........      "old-school"

Only thing I don't like about forums, is when they go down and the database is corrupted so we lose all the goodness that was posted.

I do prefer forums over facebook and other media, as I guess "we all" do.

Although I still have a soft spot for usenet..... ;)

I have not seen thorkie much recently, but my forum activity has been down quite a bit. Last I saw of him he was posting on ODD74 and the ruins of murkhill forums. I just checked RoM and he was active earlier this month. He was active on DF around the same time as well. I have him on skype, so if I see him pop up sometime soon, I'll throw him a shout. I know he regularly takes breaks for forums.

I definitely see social media taking over forums place. I see facebook groups, G+ pages, and reddit as strong centers of discussion and forums slowly dwindling. 5e being so widely accepted certainly hurts the case for the OSR, as I know many OSR folks are happy to run 5e for a wider audience and just tweak it for their style.

I had been looking for throkie for close to a year now. I am thinking seriously about dumping 99% of my social media/forum sites I visit. Only keeping maybe 2% of my contacts. This is due largely because it seems if you are not bitching about politics or showing how your feelings got hurt over by the mean world folks just ignore your posts. I don't hang around where it is obvious I am not welcome. So I am going to stick with private messages. Social media is not very social at all. Shame too.

Couldn't agree more.  Ironic that we need a safe space from people who need safe spaces.

Oh crap, infinite loop ...

True enough.  I just like their relative anonymity.
I haven't been here for awhile. I think when the big crash happened, I was sort of bummed out that all those old posts disappeared.

I don't listen to the old shows now that most of the old hosts have moved on. I just caught the tail-end of this, and I really enjoyed it.
