The future state of the forums.

After a long time on using the vanilla forums to host the forums, it’s time to get ready to say goodbye to them. The current plan is to archive everything at the end of the month and shut down the forums. We are going to embrace the Discord as the social hub for all things battle bears and encourage you to post and chat over there like we did in this forum. The big reason for the move is because the discord is far more active than the forum and we feel is a more efficient means for players to interact with each other and the staff. I know the discord server isn't perfect yet, we will need to expand the channels for the server to be able to discuss all the different areas the forums currently cover. I've already talked to the moderation team about setting up a competitive channel where things like tournaments and ban lists will be kept for easy access. I know that some of you will be sad to see things go, like the “Bump this thread in 9001 days” will not be seeing a real bump. I’ll be sad to not find out what SSS really stands for. (Something Simply Sinister?)

If you would like to reminisce about the older days of the forum, feel free to. We would love to hear your stories.

    rip the bump thread, maybe in future the forums can return when demand for it exists and we can bump it.
    SSS stands for SSP Sohey Lethal as the ultimate duo trio duo.

    as far as my forums experience goes it wasn't a big one nor was i here for a long time but i can at least talk about how the forums got me where i am. It all started on august 13th i think where i found out about IX and wanted to join, i made this forums account and asked to join. IX led me to kik which led me to STA which led me to git gud and then i got bored so i thought about balancing and things happened from that. Oh and i just remembered that i played quite a few 4v4s with the other forumers in a dm group which was one of the only times i ever used saberi seriously so that happened.
    Short story basically everything for me with this community started on the forums and i'm thankful this existed so it's sad to see them go. I understand why and maybe for the lingerers this will be the push to go to discord totally not referring to @Pirate

    What exactly does "archive" mean? I understand the obvious concept that this place will be frozen and there will no longer be any activity, but does it also mean that all accounts will become de-activated and inaccessible, or will we still be able to log in in order to view private messages and personal data? If the latter is still true, will post reactions still be functional, or will they all somehow be permanently disabled also?

    I always had a bitter taste for this place but it’s also where a lot of the people I vibe with now came from. So brb I’m gonna go post on activity for the fifth and final time that I’m leaving the forums

    I haven't been around much for a couple of years now I guess, but there was a point where the forums really played a big role in my life, and I suppose I just want to say thanks to everyone for making it such a fantastic community. I still don't think I've ever been a part of one on the internet which has drawn me in as much as this one did.

    Also sorry for all the drawing requests I never finished

    I got a strange feeling today, something telling me to visit this place, now I see why, and I'm glad I did it. I'm so sad to see this place is getting shut down.

  • AbsoluteZeroAbsoluteZero Member, SkyVu Beta Tester Posts: 3,438 Noble
    It's a bit sad to see the forums closing down but I'm thrilled that all of my ridiculous, stupid posts will be archived.

    On another note, this place has been on the decline for years and most of the people I liked on this platform have been long gone. There was also, of course, a number of very annoying people. That being said, while there are some people that would be nice to have around still, I'm not disappointed with the people that stuck around.

    I never post much anymore, but I figured this would be a good place to have a last post. I don't think discord can really replace the forums, but this place is completely dead anyway so I don't see why it matters.
    OKY was here

    Just confirming that October will be the wind down month for this vanilla forum. We'll be doing a full archive of it in September.
