Do you think there's any future in forums, or do you think most people use Facebook and Google + these days. From what I've seen the membership of large forums seems to have stagnated.

I have no idea, I know very little about these things.

All I know is that I like forums (well, this forum) and I'm happy to use it and hope it lasts for a long time yet.

Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

RE: Isn't it true...
Why is it so important Seth posts here?
And why would he even want too?

Have you even talked to some of the regulars around here? Total freaks.
I'm the only normal person here.

RE: Isn't it true...
Well, here's the thing. This forum is very popular and large as forums go, but it hasn't grown much over the last few years. At around 11,0000 members, it has about twenty who actually use it. Which means most members are simply people who have checked it out and moved on.

Forums can't be used well on phones--and everyone's using phones. I agree, one can express themselves much better in a forum, but no one seems to care about that. These days, few people are good writers, so they really don't care about the capability of forums vs. social media.

I could be wrong about Google + I simply mentioned it. I have an account, and even I don't use it. I just use facebook.

I'm launching a website soon, and I was going to have a forum, but I've abandon the idea. I think forums are old school these days. You know, it used to be newsgroups, then bulletin boards, then msn/yahoo/aol groups, then forums, now social media.

Plus, forums almost cannot be backed up efficiently, and the larger they get, the harder it is. And moving them from one server to another is almost impossible. My guess is, this forum does not have a sister server it backs up to. If the server that hosts it goes down, all is lost forever. I could be wrong, but I bet that's the case.

And back up is everything. If you had to re-make this forum, it wouldn't have 11,000 members. It would have twenty. But then, maybe Seth hires IT guys to back it all up. But that's an expense for a medium that has gray hair these days.

Unlike times I've visted here before, I won't tell you all when my site is up. I'm not trying to market to you. No offense, but I really don't want atheists around me online these days. I'm just here to talk I.T.

My agenda? None. I'm just bored. Drinking Beverage

ahahaha, I would like this 10 times if I could!

Also, regarding the writing aspect, reddit is alive and well. If this board dies out as a medium, there's always the option of having a TTA subreddit. Everyone's got one these days anyway. Big Grin
I bet reddit could shoot this site a load of traffic!

Yet here you are,
Again.

Still have the irrational fear of atheism, I see.
I see you've never actually LOOKED at the number of people online.

Shhh we dare not speak his name.

In the beginning the owner created the forum and said... Good enough, let them be unless they talk about pedophilia too much.

We're all just here for the cuddles. It's why we keep Taq around. He's so snuggly...... in an angel-of-death sort of way... >.> No, but really he's cuddly. Like... super DarthVader snuggles. And he represents the level of cuddletude inherent in all atheists. He definitely has an erotic streak though. Tongue I bet he's Irish.

You might have to take that on faith.
