You have reached the forum about forums.
Forums can be a good time capsule, I'll go to dead forums or Usenet archives just to get a pulse on the prevailing attitudes back then.
Unlike Discord the content of a forum can be accessed through a search engine and isn't buried under everyone talking at once about a broad topic. It's neat thinking a decade from now someone might read through your posts and get something out of it.
I prefer forums because of the ability for users to build up reputation and credibility. While 4chan serves a key role in allowing "anonymous" speech, it enables bad faith posting, trolling, and glowies. Makes connecting with users outside of the site easier as well.
Forums games and collaborations are entertaining, I do think this forum could use a few extra threads along those lines, but I've been slacking on making some decent ones to be honest.
