Your not the only forum veteran. I've been part of forums in one way or another since 2002 It's one of the best ways to debate or help each other out because it's slow paced so you can take your time with your post. Long live the forum format.Same basically but I got expelled from all the circles with zoomer snowflakes so here I am. Oh well, classic forums are somehow the deadest breed of all compared to even imageboards perhaps in this day and age, probably because they sit in between them, Discord, Reddit, social media and IRC... means that they got shafted the most. Aside from Usenet and other newsgroups which is mainly just porn, spam and piracy now.
Makes me want to be on it more if its more dead lol.
