I'm glad that you're taking this serious look at the future of the board. I pretty much agree with everything that has been said so far, that, as a general discussion board, Kuribo64 can't really be what it once was. Having said that, it's been an amazing run. The fact that this board has seen two iterations of hacking scenes over 6 years is remarkable. Another factor (kinda indirectly) stated is that, the traditional idea of a "forum" is a dying breed. Taking a quick look at board2
, they seem to be doing alright-ish, and then most other boards of this kind have died out. Unfortunately, I'm inclined to say that this not as much of the game scenes themselves dying, but just the idea of these boards losing traction, with the most board-y forums being out there being Discourse.
Discourse, in my experience, is smooth and easy to use. But it still lacks the feeling of using a board, and having the stability of easily seeing all of the threads, and deleted posts. K64's board software is, easily, the most intuitive and fast forum I've ever used, which I'm going to miss.
To touch upon the more sentimental stuff I mentioned in my original reply, even if it doesn't appeal to me anymore, these forums still do mean a lot to me. If they do go, then it would be sad to see, but it's been a great run regardless.
