So, what should we do?
  • Nothing?

  • Take the axe to most of the inactive sections to put the ones where things are actually still happening (ROM hacking, essentially) into a more prominent position?

  • Something else entirely? (Please specify.) ("Merge with $myfavouriteboard" is not a good proposal.)

  • This has my vote. I wouldn't axe general chat for the sake of posterity, but the only major draw the board seems to have anymore is ROM hacking.

    I can't remember. For some reason I'm thinking of an old Apple ad campaign. A quick, lazy google search isn't turning anything up either... Care to enlighten us, Mr. Mystery?

    Xkeeper? (Was there even anyone else from Las Vegas?) Frankly, I'd rather have the board burn electricity until we cause enough global warning to drown you together with that desert you are holed up in

    I already was; board2's on life support, and it's time to pull the plug.

    I don't harbor any ill will towards you or anybody else (though I still think you're a dimwit). I just think it's time to take Old Yeller out back for its own sake.

    You know what they say about going easily.

    Suddenly going for the serious response? And here I was hoping for some well-scripted banter...

    Anyway, to call the current situation "life support" seems to suggest that more effort has been put into keeping it alive and running than is actually the case in reality. Indeed, the main reason I had for making this thread was a sort of passive surprise that after months of barely even looking at it, there still seems to be a set of people (pretty much exclusively confined to the ROM Hacking section and its periphery) who post and seem to get something out of it; in that light, I reckoned it might be a good gesture to suggest some quick housekeeping to reflect this situation in the forum structure.

    Who would I even be doing a favour by pulling the plug as you suggest?

    You're about as good at banter as a brick wall, unfortunately.


    Anyway, to call the current situation "life support" seems to suggest that more effort has been put into keeping it alive and running than is actually the case in reality.


    It's more of a joke that you're keeping something alive that's basically vegetative, but I'm somehow unsurprised that you missed the analogy.

    Much like every zombie Acmlm's board clone out there, yes.

    Sorry, I didn't realise that using a metaphor that is so run-of-the-mill that it probably makes it into dictionaries nowadays still qualified as a joke that needs acknowledgement and playing along in your world.

    I'm sure people can make decisions where to post for themselves without requiring you to descend upon board2's zombified body on a shining cloud of span title equals effort and lead them on the way out.

    What's the deal with the generous spacing in your post, anyway? Are you trying to make it appear more significant by taking up more screen space? I'm sure even you must have something better to do with your time than figuring out novel ways of breathing hot whitespace air down the throats of zombie Acmlm's board clones.

    I'm sorry you didn't get the joke It's okay, that doesn't lessen my opinion of you any further, blackhole-chan.
    Spoiler:
    It's already as low as it can go :v

    I love this extension so much.

    PS: A lot of it is just inertia. Acmlm's board has a high SEO ranking) probably just because it's gone on forever. See also: how long ||board lasted even though it was filled with nothing but trolls and bad 4chan jokes.

    If I wanted to space out my posts generously, there are far more efficient and effective ways to accomplish that task, especially if you happen to remember the CSS tricks I was using back in the "I support you!" staff reconstruction circlejerk that was held six years or so ago.



    I just happen to like whitespace a lot. It gives my post more room to breathe, which is very handy in this oxygen-deprived abandonment.

    We were doing fine for oxygen before you came around with your if there were double-strength italics, this would be the place to use themsick burns, actually.

    The SEO argument would check out if the vestigial activity was due to new and one-time rather than recurrent users. And even if the board just provided people with a high-SEO place to post their stuff, what's so bad about that?

    NICE! I knew something had to improve over six years! Finally you've managed to create that spark.

    Well, there's also the unstated "most of the people who post on this board aren't very bright" argument, but I thought that was a given.
