Big Announcement Unites Forum in Forum News / Announcements Posted July 13, 2020 I suspect that the main reasoning behind the change is the idea that forums are "old hat" and that "social media" is the way to go, especially for the younger demographic. It may be that advice was taken from webmasters/designers who have little or no interest in proper forums and would therefore have steered the project away from a solid forum base to a facetwit hybrid with bolted on limited forum features. As was pointed out above, Gareth is most likely trying to juggle umpteen balls in the air and also keep several plates spinning and can't be expected to be able to oversee all of those things properly, and therefore would have to listen to what "experts" have to say and go with their recommendations. Kudos to him for his efforts and I'm not going to spend time being overly critical of him because I'm sure he's a good egg and he's trying his best in challenging circumstances. However I am very disappointed at how this has turned out. I have been on facebook groups trying to imitate forums and it's just not the same. Facebook, twitter and Discord chat have their own strengths but are are poor substitutes for a proper forum with threaded long form conversation, which is my preferred method of communicating on the interwebs. ...and for that reason, if it really is a twitface hodge podge dogs breakfast...I'll probably be out.
