Watch it unfold before your eyes! Like the futurists said, to make the world anew you have to destroy the old world first. Let's see what happens.

Sure, you make a good point. But a complete lack of 100% necessary features for fluid, continuable conversation is kinda a bullet in the head

@mike_m Not sure how to reply specifically yet. The format has changed yes, but that's ok. It's just different. It's more real time. I like it - I just saw it says weedyp is typing. Feels more like a chat room

Yeah because this is now a comments section, not a fourm. As of today there is no DTFH forum.

I'm leaving Retarddit for now. Please pass along my intense displeasure to the powers that be. I am in full pitchfork E-revolt mode.

Hey, I like the podcast and have browsed the forum and I just noticed how much it changed and it excited me... so I made an account and I think it's way different and cool

It's 100% different now and I feel nothing about the old forum. Nostalgia is a form of weakness. Throw the sand mandala into the wind. Try out this new setup... If you don't like it, what's next?

So there will be no archive type deal?

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 23:49:14 GMT

There is an archive. It's just not available at the moment.

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 23:49:20 GMT

There's a link to an archive, so far no archive. http://www.duncantrussell.com/oldforum

How did you quote weedy?

All I really want is for the old forum to accidentally get deleted completely. I would like a really well functioning forum website, sure, but I think I'm most excited about starting from a blank slate with all the old shit posts and forgotten threads to be destroyed.

I sort of agree- I'd be willing to give this a shot. I think the suddenness and the lack of feel everyone has for the format, plus nastalgia, has the makings of a backlash. Everytime sites like facebook or Instagram change literally _anything_ people hate it and then get use to it. Reddit was super weird for me at first and now I'm almost literally addicted to it. I think this would be worth a week or two pilot program and I'd like to get a sense for what the conversation was like to switch to this one in particular and what features Duncan & Co. liked.
