I really wish this place was more active - Kirby - 05-01-2018

But not for nostalgia reasons, I that isn't honestly my main motivation for sticking around anymore. Honestly, I hate the rest of the internet right now, its all owned by large corporations and everything is sliding into hyper-minimalism, nihilism, and irony, and the entirety of online culture sucks as a result. This is like literally the only place on the internet I can go anymore and no feel extreme hatred or antagonism for most of the posters.

At this point its a sunken ship, but I really dig how we own this place ourselves and its entirely under our control.

I talked to celery y3xterday


RE: I really wish this place was more active - tim - 05-01-2018

when the ff7 remake comes out we should rebrand as an ff7 forum and ride the wave to success.


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Ascaris - 05-01-2018

thats... actually a pretty good idea


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Kirby - 05-01-2018

honestly, that's fine with me, at this point Pokedream is dead and buried, we have the archives, I would rather not let this corner of the internet be quietly snuffed out


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Dock - 05-02-2018

I don't even know what ff7 is


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Ascaris - 05-02-2018

final fantasy 7, the 'honey bee inn' is a location in the game


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Lord - 05-02-2018

I'm in favour of deleting this place and starting over as a general discussion forum. A new slate.


RE: I really wish this place was more active - tim - 05-02-2018

this is a general discussion forum

what is up with people and always wanting to delete shit

I don't think you realize how amazing your entire past is saved here






RE: I really wish this place was more active - Kirby - 05-02-2018

I like how no one here disagrees that the internet is terrible these days


RE: I really wish this place was more active - pichubro - 05-02-2018

It's always been terrible


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Ascaris - 05-02-2018

i wouldnt say that

i would say that the status quo on the internet consists of an age group that we're rapidly growing past, so we keep finding less and less to relate with


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Ascaris - 05-02-2018

i guarantee you that there are communities out there very similar to the ones we used to be a part of. they're just filled with idiot children and/or hosted on platforms that we, as old people, are unfamiliar with (like discord or twitch or whatever the youngsters are using these days).


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Kirby - 05-02-2018

there is something very different between the forum dynamic and the twitch / discord dynamic

also I am justified in hating younger generations, juvenoia isn't a logical fallacy

also, a kind of hate my own generation, they are the ones who are the most largely responsible for the ironic culture


RE: I really wish this place was more active - pichubro - 05-03-2018

I use discord daily (mostly because I'm the admin of a server there), it's a very convenient tool and private unlike other places such as twitch and facebook. And it doesn't suck like Skype.

It's largely the difference between active and passive communication. You leave forum posts and except someone to read it hours later. You leave a chat room message, depending on how active the chat room is it'll be gone in minutes. So you can only really do small talk in fast chat rooms whereas on forums you can leave large, discussion-focused messages expecting replies at different times.

Both can coexist.

I like discord a lot. I still say everyone should join the server I made


RE: I really wish this place was more active - tim - 05-03-2018

i actually have no idea what discord is


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Kelsh2 - 05-03-2018

Has voice chat and regular chat. Kind of like a new ventrilo?


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Ascaris - 05-03-2018

its skype for gamers


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Ascaris - 05-03-2018

RE: I really wish this place was more active - Ascaris - 05-03-2018

RE: I really wish this place was more active - Ascaris - 05-03-2018

id say we're on the brink though. the internets gonna get a whole lot weirder to us in the next couple years.


RE: I really wish this place was more active - Kirby - 05-03-2018

the phoneification of the internet is already making things weird

I can't fucking believe Nintendo made a mario game where all you can do is jump
