Archive of the FiM subforum?
« on: August 30, 2017, 06:35:38 PM »
I was aware the FiM sub forum was due to be closed and I was sorry to read about the issues leading up to the decision. It looks as though that has happened now?

I wasn't active in the forum but enjoyed reading some of the threads and I'm surprised to see everything seems to have been deleted apart from one or two threads that have been moved over to the corral. Is there a plan to make an archive available? E.g. I was enjoying the "your worst character" and the movie threads.

The threads were locked, not deleted, so if you have them in your history you should still be able to read them :)

Wow, locking the forum / existing threads while leaving them viewable would have been a better solution.  Very sad to see so much pony history (and yeah, five years worth of threads definitely count as pony history, even if this is the most recent generation) go down the drain.

saw the reason it was taken down, and i'm not really surprised about it. the forum topics did tend to get toxic very very fast. members getting vile with those that didn't agree with them, or being vile about the show itself because it didn't conform to what 'they' wanted. was one of the reasons i barely went on it anymore the hate radiating off threads just put me off.

And yet some of us who just wanted to discuss the show without name-calling and getting pissy are rightfully wondering if our convos are still intact.

Right now they can all still get accessed, but I understand that some regulars are afraid they might just disappear.
