Friends of FSTDT section
« on: August 24, 2013, 12:09:29 am »
Do you think there's any chance this forum could be linked to there? It would be a good way of bringing in more like minded members as well as having a connection to FSTDT without being the "official" forum.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

I suggested that this might have been a possibility before everyone ganged up on Distind and dragged him through the mud just before the split (and especially with all the crap that was posted right after he announced the split), but I doubt we can get there now.

There's a notice and a link to this board in the Site Updates page, but yeah, right now I think that's probably all we can get.

Distind was against it even before we started piling up on him.  Hell, I think that set a few people off.  He does not want anything to do with us at all.

Mhm, like I said before, it sounded like Distind had made up his mind before he even posted that he was closing the forum down and forcing us to move.  He bloody well deserved the reaming he got, and he's such a prissy little bitch that I highly doubt he'd so much as give us the time of day.

But, we shall adapt.  We've got the potential, at the very least.

Huh. I got a PM from Distind along the lines of he's considering it if this forum has its own mainpage. Maybe he's changed his mind since then?

Mayhaps.  Here's hoping.  New people not coming in will be detrimental in the long run.  As more of us get 'lives' or lose interest, the forums will slowly but surely die.  I've seen it happen several times on several boards.  Boards that before were quite active even.

Maybe, but I'm not holding my breath.  His little hissy fit has destroyed any confidence I had in him.

You know what? I don't want us to be linked to that bitch anyhow. He's a transphobic dickwagon. How about we focus on places like RationalWiki and making ourselves a TvTropes page and entry pimping ourselves?

RationalWiki would probably be the better of the two.  TVTropes can, occasionally, attract...unsavoury characters a la Chagen in greater numbers than we'd get, in my opinion, with a place like RationalWiki.  The occasional dickhead to bat around like a ball of yarn is fun, but one can have too much of a good thing.

True, but it's also bigger exposure.

If he did, it's probably for some stupid reason, like he realized that the main pagers don't really give a shit about him, & all of the suggestions for improving his little project came from us.

Honestly, I'm not sure if I even want to read the main page anymore.

On the subject of TV Tropes, most things of sufficient notoriety will have a TV Tropes page. FSTDT had one. It's not like, if you have a TV Tropes page, you're intimately linked to the community. You also don't have to be "affiliated" with it. As far as that goes, Rational Wiki would definitely be a good idea.

the FSTDT page on TvTropes is/was almost entirely focused on the main page.

And in theory, "There is no such thing as notability" on TVTropes, if we want a page, all we have to do is create one, though I think that should probably wait until we have something besides forum discussion to show off.

Plus a TVTropes page for the forum would have a high potential for passive-aggressive edits.

Which is too bad because I've always enjoyed it, and I still submit quotes there.
