Oh god, I looked up some forums today to see what was out there for another forum I’m going to start.
OH GOD IT BURNS. SUCH BAD. WOW.
I’ve been very, very happy with the forums I started. Thanks to this Dark Theme I find a very easy time navigating my own forums and the people who use it really like the style choices. Looking at another forum for creative streamers, I don’t even want to spend time on the site, it is painfully to my brain to navigate and is work to navigate. Making people -work- to navigate and post things, really gets in the way of good discussion.
The average (initial) post length on my forums is about a page long, with most responses being several paragraphs long. I thank a lot of this do to easy readability and comfort. It’s like walking into a well furnished, well maintained home instead of scummy crowded college house that’s a giant cluster****.
I never want to go back to terrible forums. Thanks Discourse people, for making awesome.
