I'm cautiously interested in checking out this SF Discord you guys are mentioning.

And any idea when the new forum takes effect?
You mean that discord where they promote pedophilia? After I read that, any curiosity was burned as quickly as Sylvanas torched Teldrassil.

Alright, you have my curiosity piqued, the hell?

Annnnnd interest went down several octaves. That's even worse than my expected hangups of not meshing with certain users.

I'd also like to textend the invatation to our European brethren who's names are not Noldor


You know that reminds me of when we had the US/EU threads where we effectively spoke to one another on the forums.

That was an interesting experience.

I find the main channels too "busy", so I only visit the side channels and post there. I like to have conversations, and the posts come so fast in the main channels that any conversation attempts get swept away.


Honestly it was more than clutterness. At first we had crude humour and whatnot, but the jokes started sliding into worse and worse territory. I felt like it was becoming 4chan but for WoW.

Another killer was timezones. I'm an Aussie, so my active hours are not the same as the US's own. Often it was just me and this other New Zealander, Grim. Had some great talks with him though.

I think everything in total just made it hard for me to want to return.

Hm? Sounds like something happened after I stopped going.

I think they're talking about people not caring or being supportive of the 16 year old in a relationship with a 28 year old about a year ago maybe. Granted this is just hearsay for me since I don't have a discord so I'm not in the SF discord but I remember there being a bit of fallout in the Lounge for a day or two over it.

Hm. I actually do remember Sky coming on briefly and then leaving, but I wasn't around and just got second hand info, so I can't comment on what happened there.

But yes, the crude humour helped to make me stop going.
I don't go to the discord because I get enough 4chan when I'm actually browsing 4chan. Tried it for a few days like a year ago and it didn't work for me.

You browse 4chan? I've never actually gone cause the images I see of it makes it out to be a pretty, well, crude.

Granted, it's probably just the worst stuff that gets out and I doubt it's all like that, but that's all I've seen of it.

I remember that. You also, uh, left without telling anyone if I recall, we just noticed you weren't on the member list anymore.

Not that I blame you. I also kinda left without saying anything.

He came back and posts daily. So I guess he secretly loved that stuff


Did he? I'll have to take your word for it.

Our Discord is only comparable to the shallow end of 4chan. There's plenty of memeing and a bit of trolling, but we try to keep the actually angry yelling to specific channels for yelling at each other. If you avoid the angry and NSFW channels, you'll avoid 90% of the degeneracy.

Back to cautiously interested levels again...
Seeing references to the Discord on these forums is surreal for some reason.

It all depends on your tolerance level for degeneracy. The 10% that leaks through to the general channels is a time averaged figure. Some days are more crazed than others (usually coinciding with a Blizzard announcement of some kind, see Diabgo).

Also, weren't they supposed to roll out the new "We Happy Few" forums today?

I would've assumed they'd done it during mantience. Strange it didn't happen.

It's mostly the politics board that gives 4chan its modern reputation. While it bleeds into the entire website (especially the movie and video game boards), that's where the stuff 4chan is infamous for is centered.

I'm usually on /co/, the comics and cartoons board, and /tg/, the tabletop RPG board. They're nicer places in comparison but, you know, it's all relative.
So did they decide to scrap the new forums?
