See they lasted all of a year before Icculus gave up on those too... Seriously considering setting up "Tijer's MUD connector forums " Probably would be a total waste of time as all discussion appears to have moved away from traditional forums.
Yeah, I noticed yesterday when someone on the subreddit discord asked if the old forums were still available, and then I couldn't find old or NEW ones.
The majority of MUD discussion seems to be sitting in the subreddit discord, and the subreddit itself. Lots of exciting things happening with numerous people pretty well entrenched in that side of the community.
tbh ive spent more time on the MUD discord than any forums recently. The fact that there was no new posts on the TMC discourse for well over a month could well have been the final nail in the coffin for the forums of that site. Even TMC with the old smf forums had people posting... even if they were bs posts flaming and trolling! i think the whole switch to discourse was a mistake...
Yeah I noticed the forum aggregator here had broken a week or so ago, and it was because the discourse forums for TMC were down. I removed it from the script.
I think we're good with reddit as our de-facto 'forum' with discord as our real-time discussion medium. But if anyone does set up a new forum, please let me know so I can add it to the aggregator here on MUDListings. Said forum would need to have an rss-feed. I could try to script a web scraper, but that's a whole different can of worms.

tbh all forums are dying.. The fact that the last post on TMC was from the beginning of August and was Hades_Kane promoting his MUD i'm sure was the final nail in the coffin for those forums. Like i said i'm finding the mud discord pretty interesting, and have been spending more time watching that than any of the traditional forums, shame there isn't a way to link that to this site somehow?
