JOINING THE SA FORUMS WILL REMOVE THIS BIG AD, THE ANNOYING UNDERLINED ADS, AND STUPID INTERSTITIAL ADS!!!

You can: log in, read the tech support FAQ, or request your lost password. This dumb message (and those ads) will appear on every screen until you register! Get rid of this crap by registering your own SA Forums Account and joining roughly 150,000 Goons, for the one-time price of $9.95! We charge money because it costs us $3,400 per month for bandwidth bills alone, and since we don't believe in shoving popup ads to our registered users, we try to make the money back through forum registrations.

Does SH/SC have a Discord? I still want to get goon opinions on GPUs and PC builds and stuff.

Well, that's not good, on multiple levels.

Can someone host a clone of this subforum and let the sh/sc goodness continue?

Discord doesn't do it for me, I need a vbulletin 2 fix

Was wondering myself where the not so vast SA diaspora would go to.

Its been a fun ride. I got a lot of value out of my over the years but all things come to an end. Hobbies, humor, values all change over time. I posted here less and less, lurked more and more, and find myself going to more niche hobby forums than anything these days.

The main server has an shsc channel, but without subject threads, it's a poor substitute for a forum. Better than nothing if worse comes to worse, but I think it uses the forum for verification.

I wasn't joking when I said nothing but an actual forum would be a reasonable replacement. Discord is not something I would use instead of SA forums

Still, I'll chime in and say, it was an absolute pleasure helping people build computers over the years, write small programmes and give general advice, as well as discussing tech news.

I don't know much more about what's going on (wake up, WHAT THE gently caress!) than you guys to be honest. I'll just be limited to SH/SC here we've got aging megathreads going on here, but it's still the nerd forum on a website full of other nerds and all we care about are computers and computers things, seriously and non-seriously.

There's shitloads of (new) Discords / Slacks popping up but I'll admit I hate chat programs replacing forums right now don't think they're the same thing and allow the same level of quality shitposting!

All I'd ask is that we sit tight here and see what happens wrt Lowtax and forum administration here, and not immediately flee to off-site areas (at least not for long-term).

Actually, talking with CLAM DOWN, we're gonna sticky this and open up this one for talking about the current situation.

Never actually really met LT, don't work for him this is a neat community that has some high (and low, but we love it anyways) quality posting where we talk about computers and nerd poo poo without being complete idiots or fanboys about it. That's something that we'd like to preserve / worth preserving.

Discord is being seen by most of us a stopgap until a new forum can be set up, in case Lowtax pulls the plug.

Ideally, he would just hand over the keys to the current forum modmin regime, but that seems naively optimistic, to say the least.

I think that's the right idea to have I know the admins are working on some stuff, but I don't think these suddenly going HTTP 404 is going to happen. Looking at people's User CPs, that's one of the greatest strengths of this place and Balkanizing this place really just loving SUCKS.

Some of the bigger forums such as c-spam and games seem to be mass migrating to BreadnRoses.net:

WampaLord posted:

Anyone who wants an invite, just go to https://breadnroses.net/ and register, I will approve, let me know the username you select if it is different.

Also be patient if it takes a little bit, there is a queue I am getting through as quickly as I can.

WampaLord posted:

YOU DO NOT NEED AN INVITE

Just go to https://breadnroses.net/ and register

Even if the idea of switching to another site turns your stomach, might be worth reserving your username.

Yes, please stop posting that you registered, we are aware and are working through the queue.

Honestly actually the first I've heard of that I'd suggest if anyone feel's strongly about trying to get somewhere offsite and vent about stuff that a Discord or Slack might be a better choice before dropping $10 on a new forum.

Just for record, folks are welcome to register wherever they wish, but SH/SC and any other SA Forum are not moving to BnR or any other destination.

There are general plans in motion from the admin side, but don't know specifics and can share when I know. Sit tight and post about ARMbook Pros, or if you don't want to post, feel free to hang out in the Slack linked above.

B&R are the crew who started shouting about how the modmin team 'lost the moral authority' to moderate when the PPJ stuff blew up and started demanding the entire mod team hand power over to them. And who's efforts to get some people on the mod team were scuttled when their candidates (including Wampalord iirc, but it's been a minute) were found (and subsequently admitted) to be planning to leak the mod forum in a secret discord.

Now I'm not saying you should stay here, though my money is still on Lowtax nuking the forums when the patreon dries up, but B&R strikes me as one of those places that's going to tear itself apart in a big ball of internet drama sooner rather than later.

Not exactly excited to try to carry any reputation over to another site but any goon-goon transaction reputation from the trading / deals forums should also be considered. I swear Ive sold something to at leans 20-something odd goons over the years and Id like to keep a reputation of not being a horrible scammer elsewhere.
