Default The Death of SoL

It was a fun ride while it lasted, but this place has obviously ran out of gas. Of those still here, why do you think this has happened?

Runes

Not just one thing.

It's because interest in blizz has died down considerably.

It's because the forum slowed to a crawl for months.

It's because faster, more convenient programs like discord popped up.

It's because the folks here are older and busy with other things.

It's because there's not a lot of joy in the lore of warcraft anymore.

Warcraft still sparks joy for me, but otherwise, probably for the reasons stated by Sarm/Mutter.

I've heard that people don't like the look of it. The default "Uldaman" theme might have something to do with that.

I get that it's more or less traditional, but it's awful to look at.

You can be awful to look at.

In my case I still like Warcraft and its lore just as much, but I saw the forum's user base had almost completely migrated to discord so I did too for awhile.

However this past year I've started to find Discord kind of exhausting, its live chatting nature fundamentally different from just making a post on a forum and coming back later to see what discussion's happened in the meantime.

At the same time I figured as an "influencer" of sorts I should share what I found on the Shadowlands alpha/beta on twitter and realized that just making a tweet with whatever I wanted to talk about and then being able to easily check what discussion occurred around it afterwards is much closer to my experience with forums than Discord.

So mostly I'm on twitter at the moment. I might shift back over to the Discord once the expansion launches. I tend to go through phases of using things.

There used to be common ground and joy in discussing the lore. Then the lore started to be less common ground. Then bad blood started making that common ground moot, then the forums were just filled with bile and hate, the username fractured, and then on top of that the forums shit themselves and spent months being almost unusable.

Posts being eaten, pages not loading, ect.

Eventually, discord happened and we moved over there and the superior forum method died off completely due to bad taste, just being over a broken website, and low traffic.
