No, I'm talking about when TFF went under last summer (with Ero-Sennin working to restore it); then, many people, even long-time members, disappeared never to be seen again. Unless I'm misremembering things and there were just as few people around, even before then.
Huh? I thought that discord site was only temporary... Only went to it a couple times while the forum was down and not once since the forum came back. My link to it does not even work anymore (I just checked, all get is a white page).
I prefer sites like this to that discord site anyway, at least how it appeared when I went to it.
I'm hoping to get back into things with the coming new year. One of my resolutions is writing more, so this forum kind of helps with that in a way a Discord server can't. Might join the server later though
The real joke here is that it has taken me this freaking long to do this, but welcome friends to the newly and (mostly) neatly reorganized TFF! The changes are fairly obvious in case you haven't noticed them. The separate series sections:
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
Have all been rolled into the Anime/Manga section. Pins have been unchanged so pinned threads in their main sections should be showing up on the first page of the appropriate section. Old Series have also been Thread Prefixed so you can find them easier... though I'll admit I messed up with the Sailor Moon section and those prefixes are being worked on. Fortunately that wasn't a large section to begin with.
What was a large section was Harry Potter, which can now be found in the Book Fanfiction forum.
The Type-Moon section has been renamed the Nasuverse section, and it has been left alone because there's so much Fate and related stuff out there covering different media and genre.
Going forward, we want feedback on the change, and suggestions regarding what we should add as we work on getting this beast back on its feet. For right now, I'm definitely open to taking a look at series prefixes so that stories and threads are even easier to find going forward, restructuring the Restricted Section, and definitely not open to reverting back to the old arrangement.
Was never a fan of this merging sections concept, but had resigned myself to this happpening regardless at some point a long time ago, it was favored by too many of the then mods for it to completely disappear.
The idea, of being able to go to a section, and see material for just that series or grouping of series, made far more sense to me than variations on the new setup that was proposed, which was why I had argued against it every time it came up for discussion.
Huh, I guess I never actually gave feedback on the forum changes.
My feedback is thus: What the fuck. Like four people on the forums wanted this, and everyone else didn't. No amount of fucking up people's ability to find the stories or sections they want- and make no mistake, the only thing you've done here is make TFF's user experience worse for everyone, against the explicit wishes of most of the forum at that- is going to bring TFF back to life. That requires people actively writing and using TFF, and not posting all their shit on competing forums.
