Forum will be sunsetting...

Postby TorgHacker » Sat Feb 08, 2020 4:59 pm

This is something that’s been a possibility for awhile, but it looks like it’s hapoening.

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4085#p42438

The important take away is that these forums won’t be deleted. In addition to the Discord, I am looking into another possible forum home for Torg Eternity and will update once I hear more.

I don’t do Discord or those other social media platforms. They just don’t work as well as forums for finding information or leaving comments. I really hope this forum can be resurrected somewhere, I really value the interactions I’ve had here and have enjoyed getting to talk with everyone here.

Same here. I don't have a chat presence on the other suggested formats. It sounds like they don't really offer many of the advantages that an actual forum offers, and I'd be pretty sad to lose contact with so many of the wonderful people here. Maybe some brainstorming amongst ourselves can help work out some kind of alternative?

(If any of us have any good cards in our hand, now's the time to play 'em!) :)

Good news. An independent TTRPG forum will make a Torg and Torg Eternity subforum. I’ll send a link once everything is set up.

What an emotional roller-coaster . . . I had no idea things were bad enough that the forums needed shutting down, and am just shocked and saddened, but good to hear that an alternative has been found. Discord is fine for real-time chat, but that's all it does well -- it's nothing like a forum.

What everyone else here as already said. The forums here are a big part of why I feel like Torg Eternity has a great community. Glad to know there will be forums in the future as Discord doesn't have the same feel to me.

It was mentioned in the original post, but in case you didn't see it there's also a Torg subReddit, moderated by yours truly.

Has a date been set yet? I’m all for continuing the discussions on here, but if there are more in-depth threads happening, I’d like to have an idea of when we need to wrap it up here and save it for the new forum.

There's also an ongoing thread on RPG.net, in the general Roleplaying section.

But it won't be as good as an official area!
