    True but it doesn’t need to be true for every forum. There will always be a niche spots for certain topics. I can go here to discuss rap or go to reddit where the user base is gigantic and feel no sense of relationship with any user there.

    Just gotta say good job brother, @Slyk

    Eminem is a problem but it goes 2 ways, people need to shut about him stans and haters, when its not needed.

    Also in for dislikes as long as its used for disliking posts, not just impopular people / people they not like.

    a dislike button is a 2005 forum feature and def shouldn't be added if we're trying to a grow a forum into the 2020s

    That being said...

    The average person has a reddit/fb/twitter account and is going to go there for discussion, plain and simple. I don't think forums will ever die out completely, but at this point they're always gonna be for more niche discussion/super fans of different artists/mediums/shows/etc. People are coming to forums for a forum experience...and I think certain aspects of 3.0 in its initial form tried to mimic a social media experience too much, which is why it turned people off from it.

    Dislikes ain't it. KTT doesn't even have a like button. The leakthis member base is pretty bad (no surprise since it was funneled directly from reddit), but if we're gonna switch up the like button one thing I think they did right was allow you to pick from multiple reacts (like you can on facebook) and the 'like' count just counts the number of reacts total and you have to click into it to see how
    many of each kind of react. I believe their only "dislike" react is the clown face.

    100% in agreement on this @Slyk

    I think the plus system was a good way to give people incentive to post without relying on a vetting process that's 100% subjective. Definitely should look into this process.

    I'm not gonna front and pretend the rep system wasn't hilarious but half the people who want it back are people who got bullied on studioleaks and want their chance to bully people back on a forum that doesn't allow exposures and be a big fish in a small pond.

    Also the internet's a vastly different place than it was back then, maybe I'm just older and less of an asshole now but I feel like forums in general are a lot less ruthless than they used to be.

    though high schoolers have never had better tools for cyberbullying than those that exist today

    I kinda miss it, but I get it. I think we should turn it on every once in a while...maybe for a week or two. Could be funny and if not you could always turn it off again

    Honestly, as much as I appreciate the work that goes in here, I feel like forums are generally on the decline. But also the new particular format kinda seems cluttered to me or whatever, like aggregating everything in one place just highlights the lack of activity?

    Here’s my genuine recommendation: there need to be incentives to post. Bring back Rep. Or steal from reddit and allow down votes. There needs to be a rationale for people to engage here and not on reddit, or snap chat or Kik. You def have pockets of cliques who met and communicated here, but now are just group text buddies. Dunno how you solve it but they should come back into the fold. Or I hate to call out @Dew and bc lol but I see them tweeting in a vacuum, no one responds lol, when they should just share the same thoughts here and have a captive audience. Dunno if or how we break that fever but def feels like a challenge.

    There’s so much music discussion online I wish I knew a simple fix to corral conversation here.
