Forum, Mastadon, Server and things

Post by Ethiaa » Fri Nov 25, 2022 11:44 am

Hi few peeps. So as we've all noticed things are very quiet at the moment. Part of that is the slow death of forums in general - obviously these things also go in cycles. I'm thinking of a few things though which I fancy doing.
  • New streamlined forum, new name (retain domain but centre on a new one), new design from mighty Jon (happy birthday!!!)
  • Mastodon instance - provide a BRFC specific Mastodon instance using the new name
  • Patreon to help fund the server and new design for the above - me paying £49 a month is starting to hurt in these less than easy times
I'd be interested in any comments or additional web services that people might want to use which would be centred around a BRFC fans context. If I don't hear anything I'll probably just do it :D

Not familiar with the 'just pretend you asked and they said yes' approach?

Hot tip: Send me a bottle of Wild Turkey, wait a few hours and then ask me to do ANYTHING*.

*Not anything

We all know you'd be purging in the toilet by that point

Really adds another dimension to the never ending arguments.
