Just something else I wanted to throw into the pot, though I don't think it would be the solution for right now, and it shouldn't distract from looking for the right forum solution. It just might be…

Yes, I don't think this sort of thing is doing the site any good. There's been quite a few threads like this recently, and it makes folks think not so much about how to keep the Watch going, but…

I think it's a bit disorientating because they use a different paradigm - categories instead of trees of subfora. I think that different concept, and the way it's presented in the default…

Yes I like Discourse very much, and I think they've done a good job with it. They also have the sort of open source business model I like - they develop the software in conjunction with the…

Yeah, over here it's taught as part of the "Matter of Britain (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matter_of_Britain)" - the legendary history, and the literature that sprang from it. But not as real…

Yes, it's important to bear in mind in mind that it's the artists that really make these scenes. Epic has the budget to invest in hiring some top talent to make these promotional videos. If we hired…

Just to add to that, what I've found previously is that when you rely on plugins to provide significant functionality, that's where maintenance pain starts to creep in - you want to upgrade, but not…

I'm in favour of a like system, and I use it frequently. I find it's a way of showing agreement, amusement, appreciation, etc, when we don't have the cues of in-person interaction.

But I wouldn't…

Sure, but in my way of looking at it, I wouldn't necessarily have the right to use the Watch database, anyway. The way it came across to me, the Watch was dead, and a plan for independent…
