So in regards to Dekar shutting things down hosting-wise. Now might be a good time to move from the forum to a subreddit.

People tend to have issues with the forum when trying to register if they even use it.

Created a quick subreddit already but honestly, moderating these things is not something im too experienced with, if anyone has any experience, let me know and we'll see if this is a viable option.

I like the concept of an independent forum board for ygo games. Any chance of keeping a forum board? I would be happy to pay for a year of hosting and give you all the keys and bells and whistles or whatever. Wouldn't be hard to manage a clean install of phpBB or IPS if you're the one setting it up (which isn't a time eater). Regardless, would be disappointed to see the forums migrate to a subforum.

I just feel like a reddit subforum aint for games: It's for conversational topics.

DMG isn't a topic, it's a game.

People appreciate an independent discussion medium that centralizes the game.
The new Reddit theme is just confusing.

Basically, what IceFire2050 is asking of our players,
is to sign up for a BYOND account AND a Reddit account, just to be a part of the conversation.

That is unrealistic.

Isn't going to happen.

Moving to a subreddit will only leave to a steady decline in the (already) declining forum base.
If it happens, it will only help kill a game that's already dying.

Assisted suicide?

You dick.

DMG need its own forum.
