    It's nothing to be sad about. This has been a very, very slow death that's been persisting for almost a decade. There's been a pervasive shift in the attitude people have toward forums. No one makes new topics anymore, no one comes here with new topics of discussion, they just log in and see nothing new happening and go on to some other form of entertainment.

    You get what you put into it, and no one wants to put effort into a forum, myself included. The community is more active than ever though, it's just not happening here anymore
    I think I've recognized this as well. We don't create new topics but we're always hoping new topics emerge. Reddit is the last bastion for this sort of dynamic. Granted it has always been mostly just the Chat Thread. All of the other threads were fueled by people brought to the forum because of animation. But we all know why that's no longer a thing.

    Welcome back man.

    The forums is pretty much dead at this point (As I stated back in our little chat at Discord) but I'm all willing to support you if ever you bring back competitions here.

    What goes down on Discord? Is it just Chat Thread in Discord form or are animations shared there?

    Both, plus some more stuff like channels dedicated to writing, games, and politics.

    It's been a while since I've been here. What happened to the last round of SPAC?
    It really does seem this forum is dead.

    SPAC did not go through. No prizes were awarded.

    Forum is mostly dead.

    Spoiler for WHO I SUPP:

    I will remember you, Iwata...

    The community is still active and going strong though.

    It's just that the platform has changed from the forums to discord.
