Not to knock any of my good friends or regular Ringmeeters specifically but in my experience IRC has always felt, to me at least, rather cliquey. The in jokes more specific etc etc.
A forum is just that, an open space where anyone can share their thoughts and ideas. IRC is more of a Members' Club.
Yeah to also chime in? My laptop is in not great shape and frankly getting on my nerves with windows being a mess so I actually have been posting from my phone 90% of the time and it fuctions just fine for posting pictures etc.As someone who used to post massive photo dumps in the Awesome Thread, its not really difficult at all..... upload to imgur, copy BBcode, paste, done. Takes all of 2 seconds per picture.
But thats besides the point. Conversations here are still easier to follow and are more structured, easier to lookup, easier to reference, etc. There are no more issues with the forum software for the most part, and no reason to keep avoiding this place where we built such a great community and where many friendships were born. I’m not going to keep going on about this like a broken record, I just think its really sad to see the forum slowly die.
