My days of talking in the AOL chatrooms have passed. But you guys enjoy.

I miss so much by not reading this thread on a regular or consistent basis.

Sad to hear. But I understand, it took me a while to get there and get used to it, and I would still prefer classic forums over this.

Chats and forums both have advantages, but I'd prefer a lively Discord over a dead VBulletin.

I'd prefer a lively VBulletin over a lively Discord, of course, but it seems 'tis not to be.

I didn't know you were such a normie that you went to AOL chatrooms and haven't been in IRC channels all these years.

Agreed. Speaking of advantages, one I could name is that is far more painless for me to use Discord on my phone than these old forums (which is particularly glaring since I am not using anything else much these days), and I feel for many, it is the dealbreaker.

That's an issue with when the website was designed as opposed to the forum's back-end software. This this ol'mother was never converted into a mobile format, so there's no "light weight" variant that users can default to. That's something harder to rectify without a full revamp of the front end, and not something we have time for at the moment.

Baron, I'm sad to hear you're not big on the Discord, because honestly that's where we've defaulted conversation to during this lull period. You're considered a very valuable poster here (being level-headed while still getting into the thick of it is a rare trait these days), so if/when we can entice you to be more active in the SoL community (forum, Discord, whatever may exist in the future) we'll do our best to have your (and similar users) attention.

Grackle, don't die on this hill because of some ill-founded and arbitrary distaste toward chatroom formats!

It's not really a matter of principle or distaste.

I posted that last comment when I woke up this morning. I scanned the forums again on my lunch break. I am posting this comment while stopped at a series of long red lights... and now while pumping gas. I'll probably look again while my son's taking his bath. Then again while taking my own.

My posting style is very forum conducive, you see. Plus I don't have to download another app on my phone. Plus I don't have the site speed issues many of you experience, strangely.

But yes, my "you guys enjoy" was snarky and rude. Forgive me for that. It's actually a little comforting that the conversations ARE kept alive somewhere, and I myself don't have any complaints here.

We'll all enjoy. And I'll be here enjoying this part.

Well, you just described where Discord feels more comfortable for me, it is just easier to handle in any such situations. Not even taking the slow speed some have into equation.

Anyway, I did not take that comment as rude, so it's alright either way.

Yeah I too prefer the more thought out and time friendly nature of forums.

Save this forum! I saw a really good cold case forum closed due to inactivity. I don't want to see it happen to SoL.

SoL always goes through the occasional lull of activity. Additionally, we now have a discord that soaks up a major percentage of it.

I don't think there's any reason to be concerned. Yet.

I'm sure that in two weeks, once BlizzCon starts and we learn more about Azeroth's scar, you'll see an activity spike, and depending on how well received the next expansion is, it might last awhile.

Edit:
Please keep this thread on-topic.
