Hey, we have a new moderator!

Just noticed this in the about page:


We should have some kind of celebration when we get new things, like moderators.

In this case, the new thing we got is also a human being, so I’ll celebrate giving her a cake: :cake: and wishing her good luck with her job.


Great, hopefully she´ll finally put an end to all those off topic talks, I hate those!

Oh, don’t worry, those will end anyway for natural reasons.

That last drop in audience was when we started discussing @milanfahrnholz’s underwear changing habits :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


A topic that a certain handful of people always seem to want to get back to for some strange reason…:crazy_face:

I don´t think they will end, but the term on topic may have to be redefined. Ah what the heck, in six months this place will probably all underpants.

Yes. Quite creepy, indeed

But there would be so much we could learn from it.


Good luck, Calypso! Here comes some music for celebration!




As a son of medical doctors I have strong associations of this picture with helminths. :zipper_mouth_face:

Haha, thanks guys for the cakes, music, and well-wishes. Don’t be afraid that something will radically change here from now on - I’m just assisting Ron with keeping an eye out for serious transgressions (which are happening very rarely here) or spam.

As for me, I worked on the game as a QA tester and have been a silent lurker on the forums for quite a long time. When it comes to forums and online groups, I’m more of a reader than a poster. But I must say that I really like the friendly atmosphere you’ve created here - I consider such an amicable community to be a fairly uncommon sight on the internets.


They will end when that line will reach zero.

@ZakPhoenixMcKracken : that is real data, if you were asking that seriously.

I’m ok with radically changing something.

For example, we might ban a random user each month just to see how the community would react.

You have a pretty fatalistic outlook on things that underestimates the hard core of users. Why would everybody just leave?

Like a sacrifice to appease the gods?

Too much underpants?

Seriously: If we have discussed all TWP and adventure game related topics, and if all threads are going rapidly off-topic, I would assume that more and more users will leave. But we still have over 100 active users each day. For a niche game this isn’t bad. :slight_smile:

Oh, this is no good.

That’s how things work for very small communities. All dead forums about obscure/niche topics were once full of hard core users. It is not a bad thing, it’s just a natural cycle that happens unless somebody wants to avoid it and does something to avoid it.

No, more like a social experiment in which we all are guinea pigs.

Well, I think that new adventure games could give us enough topics to discuss, if we want to. There have been many interesting things happened in this niche in the past two months, but just few of them have been reported here. In the past it was different, the number of new threads created was much higher and more people found in them something interesting.

A clarification: those are the active users of each week. Discourse doesn’t provide in the “about page” the number of daily active users.

Not necessarily. It’s all about expectations and personal preferences: for some people it’s OK for the forum to become a very small community where just a few people discuss about whatever they want.

I´ve think we have reached that point a while ago, only question is what we do with it.
