I donít think forums were ever considered, they sort of got skipped over until social media turned up.

Forums are basically the equivalent of writing a message in a bottle and tossing it into the sea. But the sea is a small pond with no current, and the messages are written by everyone, and the pond is small enough for the bottle to be within everyone's grasp but just far enough that they'd have to exert some effort to reach it.

...uuuuu-huh?

If you ask me, forums are good for more serious, well-thought discussions. Internet messengers/Skypes/Discords are better for more relaxed, non-obligating talks, shitposting etc.

Large existing forums are still around plenty, but any forum trying to start out and build a user base has been squarely kicked in the nuts by the likes of Reddit.

So we have several Gregs and one smothered Lady Unicorn. Perhaps this is why OWF is still here ...
