So it seems like there is considerably less activity on TaBB since the Discord started, but overall there's more interaction in the community than there has been in a long time.

And like, because the activity moved to the Discord to such a degree, it becomes a problem that not everyone has gone/wants to go over to the Discord. Like, I don't think I've ever seen Thorsby or Foes in Discord, for example. I'd prefer to not lose good people like that because the forum gets inactive.

So I guess I'm wondering: what role do we want the forum to serve now that some of it's role is being fulfilled by Discord?

It seems like text adventures and mafia and stuff like that is better done on a forum.

And like, picture thread, etc.

To me, Discord is exactly like IRC was. Which means they're separate entities. So if you "lose good people" because of forum inactivity, then it's your own fault, because you are only interacting in one place.
The Role of TaBB is for TaBBers who don't want to interact in chat rooms for whatever reason. We will have our own conversations, and you will have yours.
I no longer go there because I forgot how annoying 15 people
typing
like
this
all
the time
is.

Like, a message board and a chat room are two very different things.
A chat room is for conversations that move quickly.
A message board is for things that require long blocks of uninterrupted text, big ideas, and things that take a lot of thought.

This is a good point. Most times what I have to say isn't important enough for a whole new thread. But, will try to mix it up in the future.

the forum needs to become a place to spread the idea that gangstalking is real and that all of our brains are in danger

I always wind up having a hard time keeping (and catching) up when I hop onto Discord, so I hope the boards don't die off :(

The only solution I can think of is at the end of each day, some discord volunteer writes a summary of events and plot twists and enters them in a thread on here. Like TaBB's own little soap opera digest.

"Here's a list of puns. Here are the generated chat comics. Cheston made sure we understood what he was talking about this many times. Amanda talked about jawlines for too long. Meanwhile, at work, Melissa's customers were outrageous this way. Tommy laughed 9000 times." etc

require you to keep a thing att to achieve the same deal

That's not useful! Examples plz! Examplz.

Also the idea that I want people to know what I'm talking about when what I'm talking about is wanting people to know what I'm talking about creates some kind of bizarre circular paradox.

If it helps I haven't noticed that???

But I am not sure I can identify your "thing" in chat so maybe I am just bad at this sort of thing.

Next time I notice it happening, I'll point it out. I wouldn't say that it is all you are known for, or even that it is your main characteristic, but it has happened enough that if I'm throwing things out there randomly, that can be mentioned. I mean, Tommy obviously doesn't only just laugh a lot. But he laughs enough that I have noticed.

I am a firm believer in the Jim Shooter era Marvel Comics rules, by the way, where you can't depict characters without including their name somewhere and they wind up describing their powers at least once per issue if they use them.

Every issue is somebody's first!

It makes sense that I would apply this to conversations.
