I really wish this place was more active
#1
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.

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

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

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

I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

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

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).

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

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.
