So the other day I was talkin' to Heath and Tim and was like "so, wtf, like all of a sudden nobody's saying shit in the forums anymore. I think the updates forum is overpowering everything else, maybe."

And they were like "well, maybe, but maybe it's just a random drop cuz of school and summer ending and all that."

But then I was like "if it is the updates forum, maybe we should nix it altogether and keep update comments completely seperate from the forum."

So yeah, nix the updates forum, or keep it?

I voted "Kill it" but only on these terms: "keep update comments completely seperate from the forum."

Otherwise, the forums should stay.

If anything the updates are what is making the forum active.

I voted keep it.

Make the thread bot give staff the option to either start a new thread, post in existing thread, or keep the comments just on index.

Keep it. The slowness has nothing to do with the the updates forum. It's because I haven't been posting all week due to my bad case of zombie ear, my permanent painkiller haze, and my overall dislike of the lot of you. Now that I'm back I suspect we'll be back to normal.

If anything else the update forum gives of a constant stream of new shit to talk about instead of just making tired posts to the same five tired topics. I'm sure you've noticed some of the multi-page topics in the UF have strayed from their original topics, which isn't really a bad thing. It's all interaction, what does it matter where it's focused?

Why add something then just take it away?

I think it is fine the way it is.

I say keep it. For those people who just stay on the forums it lets them know what's going on with the site, I think it is a good thing to show some updates and like LiQuid! said, good conversation starter.

Lock the topics to posts but make them show up?

What's the point of having the topics if they can't be discussed? This thread is stupid. There's no reason to kill the updates forum...

Maybe we should put the UF up top right under the RPG/Game Discussion thread at least?

According to a lot of private conversations an messages, a lot of the occasional activity decrease is also due to people getting tired of the same old remarks over and over again, like "(Company X) is gay" and "That's beause you're gay" or "I'm surprised you've ever heard of that because after all, (same pot shot taken at poster that has been taken 50 times."

People wise up and mosey somwhere where people are sociable than that after a while. (Or at least they don't sound like broken records.)

That might be true, but you can't neglect the glaring evidence that after being healthy for a mere day the activity on this forum has like quintupled in the last 24 hours from what it was last week where I didn't make any posts.
