I mean, do we really need another forum?
Given the state of things, I'd say we do ... unfortunately this place has a monopoly on blindy game communication, and until it gets bad to a point where most feels the impact, it'll continue to exist and thrive.
Not that the alternatives aren't good enough yet, riddled with issues such as that thing where it randomly goes down / doesn't have a good enough moderation team, or for any other reason. This place still has the resources and collective history to last quite a while.

No, I did not leave the forum for good. Sorry to disappoint.

actually its dead.
look at the topic about the forum in the offtopic room.
here is the quote from defender.

Important Announcement
I'm officially calling the masonasons.me forum dead.  Mason does not seem interested in remaking it, and pretending otherwise would be unfair to the community.
I wish he was the one to say this, especially given that he's decided to start posting here again despite saying he wouldn't be doing so any more, but it is what it is.
Who knows, it might come back in some form in the future, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Thankfully we didn't lose much of value in the end, as nothing said there was all that different than here anyway.  I don't much regret my time moderating there, so it could have been worse.

Not to be mean or kloner sun or so, but who would like me remake something like it?

Coding is fun. You can how ever only code good if you have enough motivation to do so.

Give the new devs a motivation. Don't expect to much from their first steps cause after all they are new, but give them some chances.

2019-08-13 15:51:40

Honestly, what's the point. We already have this place. While it can be drama filled and toxic, at times, important key words there, the alternatives will be just the same not a short time from they're launch.

I think the best bet would be a subreddit, I really do.  More and more blind people are starting to use it...  Though still not enough.
But we need some kind of backup.

There is one already though, right? I don't think anyone posts in it though. As for creating another forum, I've said this time and time again, and will continue to do so even though I know I'm wasting my time. Having a secondary forum is not a bad thing in and of itself. You won't cause fragmentation by doing so. Mason's now-defunct forum, doomed to failure as it was, is proof of that. The same people still posted here who had accounts there. It would be like saying that there should only be one social media platform in existance, because if there were more than one, everyone would jump ship and only use the new one. Of course, we all know that's utter bullshit.

The problem we have is that there aren't very many people who are up to the task of running such a place, and that, more than anything, is why we don't have any other audio gaming-related forums. I don't blame people for not wanting to do it, honestly. I sure wouldn't.

Hi.
As far as I'm concerned, it would be nice to have a separate forum.
1 main advantage I could see is using the secondary forum as a testing ground for new programmes. IE If someone developed a Fortnight for the blind, and it's not quite finished, you could upload it there so people could give constructive criticism and the dev could update and perfect their programme. Also, It could be used as a forum for younger people to chat in a less controlled and monitored environment and, filter out the trash spam from this forum.
That's My 2 Cents.

I actually don't see the humor at all. people in this community are so resistant to the idea of there being a secondary forum that any failures are magnified a hundredfold.

It seems this forum has a monopolistic outlook on audio gaming forums. It seems that the forumites become threatened at the sound of a new forum being announced. Take the ATB Forum. People were wishing it bad, but even though Mason screwed up in the end, it was actually working out.

Trust me Turtlepower, I'm not one of the people who believes that.  I'm laughing because it's Simter of all people doing it, that's all.
I mean he isn't the absolute worst choice, but he's near the bottom, and he's really just a kid him self, and not a mature one either.
There are so many things wrong with this idea of his that I don't even see the point in listing them all, because I know he'll just do it anyway.
So instead I'll sit back, laugh, and hope he learns from it...

Jesus, Defender, Ironcross, way to keep people down - especially if they're just kids. I hope you never have any kids certainly.
Also, I can throw a 100 KG 190 CM guy - well at least I could.
