  1. Well, instead of just complaining, I decided to go ahead and do something relating to the suggestions I've had recently. Of course, as you can tell from the title, I went ahead and decided on Discord as the place I'd like to get this started. There's three main reasons. Firstly: mobile notifications. I think I can speak for (nearly) everyone when I say that having a chat with notifications increases one's ability to interact significantly. Secondly, it's a very ubiquitous piece of software at this point that many people might already have installed. Even if you don't have it, you should give it a shot. Not even for what I'm promoting here, there are a lot of public communities on discord relating to all sorts of interests. And Finally, the channel-based structure of Discord can provide an interesting blend between the structure of a forum, and the activity of a chatroom. I'm also aware that there are some downsides related to discord. If you want to preserve your computer's performance, it might be problematic to keep a chat client running all the time. Discord is by no means the lightest chat client out there. It's also likely not going to be embedded on the site. Quincybot is not currently capable of operating in a discord chat (although if this proves to be a successful idea, I will happily port him to discord.) And lord knows what kind of challenge there's going to be getting everyone on board with switching chats. To any of these criticisms I will say that I'm still open to suggestions. This was what I thought might be best, but I can't really say I'm the authority on that. This forum has become extremely inactive over time, but I think just about everybody would agree that it has nothing to do with the fact that we don't want to interact and be a part of the community and everything to do with the fact that a dedicated forum to such a small group is a little cumbersome for what you get out of it. It can almost seem to feel like an obligation to get stuff moving here sometimes. And leaving a tab open for as long as you're on the website isn't always good enough. But I've spent enough time rambling. Here's the link to join: https://discord.gg/Qe63Szz Hope to see you there!
  2. If we want to bring UFG back from the brink, we're going to have to figure out this chat dilemma.

  3. Wow. I'm really glad you saved all those old drawings of mine. I lost them with my old computer long ago, so this is my first time seeing them in a long time. Thanks for sharing again. Kinda miss those days when that drawing board was active before the porn artists took over. I mean, not that their art's bad or anything, but it definitely brought a different vibe and shifted the focus of that community.
  4. Hey! Thanks so much! This was my 22nd birthday. Had a sweet trip to Carlsbad Caverns which is a p dope place. Got some cool gifts, got some joke gifts. Was an all around cool day.
  5. SPAM GAME

    I mean, I guarantee he would look less naked if you had drawn his stripe
  6. You know, there's still a part of me deep down that really wants this to be a good game. Why did I ever have to spend my youth being a fan of this series? I'm pretty concerned about this game. Why did they have to bring classic Sonic and GHZ back when Sonic Mania is releasing this year? Why is everything in the game so all over the place? Why are Sonic fans the worst? Maybe it's just because I have had such a blast with Sonic Colors for the past few days. I do dig the modern Sonic gameplay. I want more of it, even. But why does it have to come in this package?
  7. I preordered isaac for it but I can't get a switch because they're all sold out help And I mean most consoles have a lackluster launch at least the switch has Zelda all the ps4 had was fuckin' knack (and I love my ps4) But also maybe I'm not the dude to ask because I'm mega Nintendo fanboy 9000
  8. I also want to give props to the new drop dash. Looks amazing for speedrunning. I might actually get on board with speedruns with this game because of how fun that technique looks. It's really amazing how simply they were able to innovate on classic Sonic when SEGA has been struggling with doing the very same thing since Sonic & Knuckles.
  9. UPDATE

    I agree we still need plenty of touch-ups, but I'm glad to see a lot of these changes. Simultaneously making the site more modern while also giving us our own sense of identity that doesn't just parrot TSF.
  10. I really loved Shantae and the Pirate's Curse so getting this one is a no-brainer. Been keeping an eye on this one since the very beginning. I might've even backed it myself, if not for the fact that it started so long ago I hadn't even had a job yet. Glad it wasn't a disappointment.
  11. Probably my personal fave. It doesn't even have anything as silly as most of the other songs, it's just fun to listen to. EDIT: Also the Sonic Underground theme is lasered into my brain pls help
  12. Christian Whitehead has done more justice to Sonic as a series than SEGA has done in decades.
  13. Yeah, after three years of bussing tables at Olive Garden I finally decided to go into serving just a couple weeks ago. It's been pretty good so far. I mean it's not that I was struggling to become a server all that time, I was just fine with how things were.
  14. oh no
  15. Yeah. My online presence is kinda lacking but that's just because I've been so busy offline. Work, school, friends take up most of my time. And when they don't, I'm usually playing something. It doesn't leave all that much room for online stuff. You know, I've thought about it a lot lately... I'm not really sure how to use Facebook. I know how to use the software, obviosuly, but what the heck am I supposed to do with my profile? I have my colleagues, family, friends, and some coworkers all in the same place, what the heck am I supposed to post that's appropriate for all of these? My achievements? I don't have any of those >:U
