The Death of MD Forums

Postby Davion Fuxa » Wed Oct 16, 2013 11:10 pm

Maybe such a thread doesn't really need to be created, but are we coming upon the time where this forum has pretty well died?

It appears that there is little activity in MD anymore - probably because there hasn't been much in the ways of production from Heretic, but also because no one seems to be here to discuss much of anything anymore.

I don't know what we'll do in this thread - maybe discuss what we plan to do, where we might go from here, or what not....

I feel so bad right now, I really do. As in, holy shit, how long has it been since I made something new for MINDistortion. Sorry for letting you guys hanging. I haven't given up on MD yet, but I really suck at personal deadlines.

Let's talk about facebook for a minute.

In 2006, when I was sixteen years old, I was a little mindistortion underling battling an English fellow to keep my spot as top poster on these here boards. I was in an e-relationship at the time with a Canadian poster I had met on here named Anna. We had long, merry chats on our vintage "instant messaging programs." There were handfuls of people on these here dark blue boards, and handfuls of arguments broke out over anything. Many jokes were spouted and the merry people poked each other with fun insults.

Back then, facebook was just getting started as a cutting edge social networking site. People in America were bored with Myspace and its social networking craze. Today, facebook is probably the most visited website aside from Google.com. Its advantages as a social networking hub abound. Pictures, videos, discussions, flame wars; these can all be found in one central location. I find myself starting discussions with other MD'ers on facebook and wonder where the old boards went.

Maybe they could recharge, but that's a big maybe.

tl:dr; Facebook's fault.

I just pretty much got tired of the same stupid people talking about the same stupid things. Once we added those "made my day good/bad" posts its practically turned into a public journal for people to garner jealousy or pity. Its annoying and boring. If I had my way I'd have remove those threads a long time ago.

But if I had my way there'd be a lot of things different about this forum, so I've pretty much lost all my 'give a shit'. I honestly don't even watch or play new MD movies/games.

I hadn't even watched the last thing you had done. I remember you posting about it and I was going to but I was busy with something else. I never got around to it. Hell, I haven't been on Newgrounds (where I found your stuff to begin with) in years.

It's kinda depressing going through the members list and seeing this place like this. Even though I wasnt here when it was active its pretty depressing.

This site just needs an overhaul. A new look that will attract new attention.

Apeman ..you are just as big of a jerk as the day long ago here when I first met you. Guess some things never change. I guess GC is correct though. FB has become the current social media. Only three members here are on my FB ... since I cleaned house about a year ago ... so I still have some contact.
I play Star Trek online everyday ... for a year now ... and have met some awesome people. We use TS3 and that opens up whole new worlds. I met this awesome guy from Canada and sometimes he makes me think about you Davion. I miss your politics. :)

Who is Obskewer ?? That is an old start date.

GC .. blue boards ??? Mine are black .. lol

Oh yes, I forgot honesty isn't always the best policy for some.

Good to be remembered!

Anyhow, glad to see people haven't completely disappeared. Hopefully that is inspirement to you Heretik to pump out something.

You're very welcome to get the fuck over it. :)

No one forces you to read my posts; just like many have done towards you, you can always choose to ignore me.

I've mostly been a reflexive poster for the last year or two. I pretty much only post in response to others' posts. So, naturally, if forum activity wanes, I post less, and visit less, thus contributing to the problem.

These days, when someone has an opinion, instead of making a thread about it, they make a Facebook status about it. I'm guilty of that, certainly. For example, I made this Facebook status just an hour or two ago; two or three years ago, it would have been worth an MD thread.

I notice that ERQ has posted something, presumably in response to my own most recent post. I wonder if she said anything enlightening. I wonder if she said anything intelligent. Perhaps she posed a witty rebuttal to the claims and opinions in the screenshot I posted of my recent Facebook status. Sigh. I must be missing so much intellectual content by blocking her posts.

Maybe it also died/is dieing cause of tension in the community, along with lack of new stuff, and out dated layout as mentioned above.

I've created a reputation of pseudointellectual pretentiousness so solid that I never suppose my posts will be taken seriously.
