Default New Place for SI?

Has anyone ever suggested to Saiyan to drop the forum version of SI and create groups on sites with a bigger collective to sites like Redit / Tumblr / Facebook etc.?

I've seen a handful groups who've hit 30,000-80,000 active members on FB and they start a forum hoping to create a site for whatever reason and the forum gets MAYBE 15 people who join. only for the forum to die completely within a week or two. lol.

I get that these sites don't have as much user control, customizability or profit, but at least they have a deeper reach in users.

I've often thought about creating a nerd culture type page and recruited the mods on this forum because I've always loved em and they were good at what they did. I've joined FB pages that started out with 1000 members and after a few weeks they easily hit 20k.

Every now and then I do get nostalgic and miss the out of this place. BUt I think it's safe to say that Forums are a dying breed.

Well it's not a bad idea I doubt anything like this would happen. Saiyan has shifted focus to the main site being anime and game news which is definitely making him money. My guess the only reason the forum still exists is because everything is paid for and I doubt it cost much to keep it online with it's low traffic.

I'm up for creating a Facebook group. There's what, about 30 of us left?

When my previous forum (The Pallet Tribune) went down, we made a Facebook group and that's where we keep in touch.

That means I'd actually have to have a FB account though.

I'm part of some facebook group with a few other members from this site that another member made. It rarely gets posted in or used and the only notifications are usually from the name changes it goes through.

Facebook groups are the most useful things for anime/game discussion. I'm part of a few and they've been the reason I've started using FB more.

WHy is everyone hung up on the mention of FB? I get it . I used FB as an EXAMPLE/ but I also mentioned other sites. lol.

Yeah groups is basically why I use FB. The ones I am apart of usually grow like crazy and are always active. I'm not talking about Pages. Pages are wack. lol. Admins have to be on ing point to make a page work (only admins can post on Pages). Groups are where it's at... all you need are some great posters and the admins need to be chill.

But I also mentioned Reddit / Tumblr etc which probably have the same or more traffic than FB. Somewhere. ANYWHERE other than a forum...forums are so dead man.

My comment was directed more at dark than you.


Original comment still stands though. I don't see anything officially happening. Saiyan's entire focus shifted to the main article site. I believe there's a FB page no clue about a actual group.
If anyone wants they are more then welcome to create their own.

Sidenote: I believe JV3 made a discord for SI or was going to.
