    Ideas for new forums?

    As a bunch of people were discussing in this thread, it may not be a completely horrible idea to create a few new forums. I really don't care if they are inactive. They'll just kinda sit there, sure, but there will be a place for a topic that will never feel "out of place" by having to be funneled into General Discussion or something.

    Having a lot of forums creates the idea in the back of your head that you may have had something you wanted to discuss about that particular concept whenever you pass that forum for that concept. It opens the door for the idea and welcomes you inside, proverbially speaking.

    Couldn't hurt, really. Let's make more forums.

    Here's a growing list of the ideas gathered from posts below, as well as a few of my own ideas here and there.

    • Tabletop Games
    • Do It Yourself
    • The return of AsSoWhGoLa. (If you have to ask, you're too young.)
    • Console Modding (Might be a bit iffy, legal-wise.)
    • RomHacking (This one's going to be tricky for the same reason.)

    I kinda wouldn't mind a Do-It-Yourself kinda sub-forum. I'll be damned if AGN is void of engineers or other like-minded folks. I can see that harboring topics from building computers, to car parts, to photography, to cosplay, and especially foodstuffs.

    ASWGL Volume 2.

    [edit]Oh, and this song plays in the background whenever you go in there. Whether you have flash installed or not, it just plays.

    And everybody gets a complimentary AGN cowboy hat and a case of PBR.

    And a pack of Black & Milds.

    I would actually also like to see another ASWGL. The way I see it, there are a number of ways to "break a person in" on the internet. Posting in GB would shatter your innocence in a way that would traumatize you, and being in ASWGL would shatter your innocence in not nearly as unforgiving a fashion. Posting in the Think Tank would shatter your self-confidence occasionally, thinking that you know everything and are aware of how reality works, yet it would quickly become apparent that google is your only friend, and an estranged one at that.

    I miss all that. I really do. At least the last two.

    You may be confusing ASWGL with my avatars.

    My vote should be obvious by now. I am up for a DIY forum if it gives me a replacement for the EaTS forum so I can post my noms again. Still not sure why that had to go with the last prune, but then even I stayed away when the spam-bots and virus warnings got too much.

    "Live and Let Live" is an excellent, tree-hugging philosophy, but it doesn't do much when the ones you refuse to kill are dragging you down with them.

    Double-posting to point out, there were no innocents in GB.

    I'm probably going to bring that back. At minimum, as a sub-forum of something.

    I mean I'd really like to see as many new posting areas as possible enter the field for consideration, just so that we can toy around with them in our collective minds, and see how everything works together. I know some people will have the opinion that more forums filters topics away from one forum or other, but that's not that big of a price to pay, really. General Discussion isn't ever going anywhere, because there are some topics that you just can't place as easily.

    One thing we're probably going to have to do is to write stickied topics in each (new, maybe old) forum to illustrate what will be going on in that forum that won't be going on in another. I can really appreciate it when the staff go out of their way to ensure that the inevitable chaotic post-storms are as controlled as possible in case someone gets all self-conscious and wants to know if they're posting in the right place. God bless 'em.

    Double-posting to point out, there were no innocents in GB.
    Haha, right, right. I still remember when I quoted something you said to me and said "You're going to hell for saying that" almost a decade ago. I'm still kicking myself for that. I don't remember the context. Not sure if I'd care to.

    With age comes wisdom. It can't come fast enough.

    I assumed the Veldt was pretty much GB reincarnate. Is this not the case? Or at least, a T for Teens version?

    I feel like the Veldt is always "about" to be GB. It's like an episode of Three Stooges. People can get pissed, but nobody ever actually dies where people can see it.
