Howdy everyone,

 

As you have probably noticed, the forums have been pretty empty lately. 

Now, we've tried very hard to both advertise and steer people to the forums but we think the time has come to go in a different way. We've started a brand new FB Group for the community. It's a place to discuss the show and talk about the latest episodes. Obviously, there are some limitations with this new system, but we feel like it would be a nice, centralized location for things and get a lot more people talking at once. 

With that said, we'll be discontinuing the forums as of October 1st, 2017.

 

We know that this is a bummer to some of you. The forums have always been a place for long-form discussion and chat.  We hope to be able to do that on the FB Group page as well. I would encourage you all to, at the very least, give it a shot. We want, more than anything, to involve as many people as possible in this thing of ours and we hope that you'll contribute to that. 

 

Please feel free to post on this and let us know all of your thoughts and opinions. 

 

Thanks so much,

Jason

I totally get it and it's not an unexpected decision. 

 

Hopefully the group will be active and full of participation from both listeners and D&R folks.

Well hopefully the face book group will work out. I've really enjoyed the forums for the past 18 months or so and hate to see them go. We've had a lot of good discussions and I've met (virtually at least) a number of good folks here. I definitely don't use face book at all so won't be participating there, but I'll keep up with some of you on the Patreon Discord server.

 

Again, thanks for the fun discussions everyone!

I'm going to miss my avatar and forum title the most. Ugh.

The Gunter will have to keep searching though I suppose.

I'll miss the place.

Of course, once I start back at work, the forums start to close. Now what am I going to do at work?

So sad to see this place go but I totally understand the want/need to migrate the forums.

So long forums, and thanks for all the fish.

:ph34r:  I am the forum ninja. You don't see me. You only think you do. And if you actually do, it's because I let you.  :ph34r:

Ryn's comment reminds me I should have given a special thanks to the individual running and moderating the forums. THANKS! (better late than never hopefully).

Well that stinks, but it's understandable. The Discord server is a lot of fun, but it really was that killing blow for the forums. 

 

I don't have Facebook so I'll be on the Discord a bunch. Thanks to everyone who kept the forums running.

It's just one of those things.

We've tried for four years to get these going and could never really get that groundswell. It's just so much easier to use things like Facebook and Discord I guess.
