Discourse is well into the trend of obese software though :P


admittedly, getting a lighter, more straightforward and less crapo codebase was one of the big reasons behind the switch to Acmlmboard

(as well as the fact 4dsdev was already using it so we could make them run off the same codebase)


as for forums, well

in this era, they need a purpose to really strive. they can't replace Discord/etc in that they are a permanent medium that can be searched and read back and all, which doesn't work too well with the more 'everyday chatter' media or 'constant stream of new content' social media.

but they're less convenient for everyday chatter, so... yeah.

DON'T CLOSE IT PERMANENTLY.

seriously, don't. and maybe don't focus on ROM hacking either, if the scene is dying.
perhaps focus on one of your other interests, idk, something that can appeal to most of the community (maybe just a standard Nintendo/retro gaming board idk) and be something that has a nice atmosphere that you want to run

the idea about having a specific place for retro gaming is cool with me... Acmlmboard is pretty old looking, so it'd be rather fitting and also, not many of those communities really like "younger" members so eh (I remember getting abuse from one site)

also to who said board2 is doing well they're clearly being sarcastic :p

If it needs a rebranding for that case, do it, but it might not be necessary

Initially I was gonna oppose this for being too broad, because every broad Nintendo discussion board has since fallen. Ariso is an actual competent board owner though, so hey maybe?

Oh see so I just went to the board2 index (knowing nothing about it besides the fact that it exists - not even what it actually is) and saw posts from yesterday and assumed it was doing alright without noticing that they're spam.

Eh I feel like, if this is went with, at that point the K64 identity should be kept.


I realize that this reply is slightly contradictory to what I've already said. I change my mind about what I said about forums, that they haven't completely lost their place, and forums still do have a place on the internet.

i mean having gaming first, and then having ROM hacking and emulation as sub-topics to make it one place for all. given the fact there's two sets of people here:

* oldbies who mostly hang around general or discord
* newbies (atleast to k64) who mostly hang around romhacking

because most boards about gaming don't cover rom hacking or emulation, do they? I can propose some sort of forum list if this sounds like a good idea.

==important==
announcements
help, bug reports & suggestions
==[staff forums]==
==general==
general chat
serious discussion
relaxland
relaxland II
==gaming==
nintendo - current & future
nintendo - pre-2013
other gaming
==rom hacking & emulation==
rom hacking & emulation
sm64ds hacking
nsmb2 hacking
mkds hacking (new forum, perhaps sgc can help be a moderator?)
==memorial==
display case
trash forum

this can probably be toned down considerably tbh, but I think if we expand on that gaming idea (but not make it the only focus) and provide a place covering both nintendo gaming, and romhacking/emulation that is friendly, accepting and open - a lot of the romhacking community has a negative stigma attached to it imo (see:smwc, gbatemp) - then we'll start getting new members. i feel like maybe a 'community events' forum would be nice too, things like mosts, arranged online gaming sessions, would really get people knowing and getting together, in the 'important category'

I Would like for it to stay up, but yeah, activity is at a low. So maybe archiving is the best option. A shame, this place was neat.

I liked this place (when I actually used it lol)

But I think the amount of information stored away here makes this place deserve to be archived rather than shutting down and vanishing to the void

...Not that many people rummage through the storage closets (The Archived threads and Wiki). BUT I CERTAINLY DO and I'd hate if one day I come and the storage closet is gone.

Sadly it might be doomed given the new subforum didn't do anything...

... maybe archiving the board was sadly a good idea after all...

the new forum isn't meant to boost activity. it's just implementing more democracy.

Sad thing is most people are using Discord for their needs now instead of this but for traditionalists - and for when A13 hits Discord's European users - sites not making a profit and run out of the heart will make a comeback. :)

Regarding A13, I did read some info on it and it does not really apply in the filter stuff unless the website is commercially managed or done for profit. K64 is neither of these (and neither is Kafuka, Jul, small hangouts like my place...) so I'd say A13 may benefit forums that haven't been taken over by businesses? And Ariso would say likely, "Anything that hinders businesses is a good thing" :P

uhm, just how much stuff are european users uploading to Discord that would really make that much of a difference?

though, if what you said later is true, then yeah, that's super cool knowing that k64 and other non-commercial websites won't be affected. not that arisotura would have installed the filters anyways...

A13 will not be hitting anyone hard at all. it will take so long to take real effect and my guess is it's shut down before then.


as for what k64 should do, i don't see a reason to archive it because staple is still active and there's still moderation in place. it's about whether she would want to continue moderating and i have a guess that she's ok w moderating this place still but i dont know that for sure

hello y'all! i'm late.

there's a lot of people here that i wanted to talk to or be around more frequently, but since i'm busy with work + college + other stuff then i don't have time to frequent everyplace on the internet anymore. this being one of the places that i had cut off (sorry)

this board probably has the best version of acmlmboard out there right now all things considered. but as far as the community goes...if everyone else agrees that it should be archived then maybe that's for the better

if it does get archived, i hope to see you guys somewhere else around the internet at the very least! i still post semi-regularly on Jul and SMWCentral, if that counts.

i'm mostly around Discord nowadays, but even then I'm mostly lurking. I understand that some people don't like Discord, which is why I love IRC-Discord bridges because they really bring everything together!

I'm gone for a while. So. Uh, has anything happened. Did I miss something?

BTW Discord is stupid and it's a haven for shitposting. I also don't see other Discord channels also being so successful. Kuribo64, even if it was gonna go to Discord, is probably going to end up the same fate eventually anyway.

I'm honestly going to say archive.

LGM and BL: Our arguments about the best Mario characters are pretty funny, especially how we try to validate them. Also I'm the best in L4D2 don't DM me
(no offense if you're not on here, you're probably really cool)

Oh hai thanks for the shoutout. If this place goes down, please keep in touch. I'm way more active at Super Mario Boards (I know you have an account there but just in case others are wondering where I usually frequent) though even that community has a bit of an activity decline. It's still fine, and it's been there since like 2008-09 and it has a nice Discord.

Discord is more than a haven for shitposting, it's its temple. At least in forums we can't send a post every second, that makes people think more about what they're saying.

really? that's... actually pretty interesting.

so you're saying all the times i refreshed the page over and over for thirty seconds trying to see who would be the first to respond to me were all for nothing?

nah, the 30-second delay is per-user. it applies to posts in general, and also to PMs in general. it's mostly meant to hinder flood attacks.

there's also a limit for doubleposting (I think it's one hour or something like that) but the board lets you choose to merge your posts instead.

oh huh. it's been a really really long time since i've tried to double-post, but back when i first joined and accidentally tried to do it, it said i had to wait 24 hours before posting again and didn't give me the option to merge... but i suppose that's changed now. super neato.
