And of course there's always chat in the tearoom or elsewhere within MUD2 itself. But the forums DO have some advantages over chatting in MUD2 and on Discord. Here, it's possible to have lengthy, multi-paragraph statements on a variety of MUD2 and sort of related topics (gaming, fantasy, role-playing), inviting further in-depth discussion. We can have lengthy light-hearted humor threads, or more serious in-depth discussion on MUD2's game mechanics. We can discuss in-game events or MUD2 article sites such as Muddled Times in-depth as well. And we can do it without having to repeat ourselves for the benefit of those who weren't in the tearoom (or in MUD2), or on Discord when we had the initial discussions. People can browse and read through threads and get insights from months or even years ago. I've been going back and re-visiting a lot of the older threads from years ago recently. And it's surprising how many of them are still very relevant today. Some are so relevant that one could post in them and get the discussion started again almost seamlessly. The downside of forums is that they have to be constantly moderated and looked after, to keep spammers under control. As I've said elsewhere, forums are like gardens. They have to be tended to on a somewhat regular basis, or else the weeds will take over. In any case, forums generally have a greater longevity than live chat. Because unless someone logs the chats and posts them to forums, people who weren't there don't get to see the points being made. Okay, I'm rambling. If anyone else has any points to make on the value of the forums, feel free to comment. [/quote]
