Speaking of Oldie-but-Goodie threads, the Goon Penpal Thread has been around in it's current form since 2011! The thread was originally in GBS but was moved over to CC during a mass thread purge/reorganization a few years ago so the turnover of new and lapsed members isn't as high as it was at the peak. But, we'd love to have some new Pals! Getting snail mail that isn't bills or political ads is fun and good, especially when you're stuck at home/bored for the COVID sequester. Plus you can support the USPS (who will deliver you awesome stamps like holographic t-rexes and glittery bats if you want). International Goons welcome as well.

Please note: I did not write the tiger king article nor work for the tiger king. I merely laid out the article so for some reason it shows up on my author.

It's hard to check this thread to see if you're posting a repeat, and I absolutely cannot believe that someone else hasn't posted this thread. So sorry for the probable repeat; I did try looking through to see if it was already here.

I hesitate to call this a "best read" because the subject matter is pretty upsetting, but 50s girl groupon is doing an amazing job of documenting their challenges with Hodgkin's lymphoma in PMF. It's something else. They went into the hospital thinking they had Covid and then everything went to hell.

Between the original pastebin thread mentioned earlier ITT including the logistics of standard issuing at least 4 different pistols and ammunitions for said pistols in Somalia, completely unable to figure out how to use AK47s, while also "We're working very hard on this. It's not all happening overnight, but it's getting closer, like a Sakura beginning to bloom, we can see a small hint of what is to come." then going to post #4 of the GIP goldmined thread talking about somebody running with a joke and literally eating a frog on a whim, I'm getting the exact and and rollercoaster this site was build upon

Not every engaging, interesting, or emotionally resonating thread is going to be a lighthearted comedy romp. I personally enjoy seeing all the ups and downs of the forum; it's also nice to see goons lend a hand, or be able to lend a hand yourself. I would say absolutely post threads like that!

There are two really weird CYOAs with good art in BYOB right now:

A goblin adventure of some sort: https://forums.somethingawful.com/s...hreadid=3924567 (note the CYOA doesn't get started until the middle of the second page. Up until then it's...well, I don't really know what it is, but it has good art in it!)

Marge Quest: https://forums.somethingawful.com/s...hreadid=3921781 (the Simpsons meets Earthbound meets strangeness)

There is also a third quite good CYOA in BYOB at the moment but it is a standard text adventure and these two have a visual element.
