Burden plz, do not act as though the people who cozy up in the discord are in fact diploers. That is far from the truth. They aren't 'diploers' they are mindless shills brought to inflate our numbers to assist Cniper in his grand scheme of monetizing our beloved community and living a life of leisure just as his albertan oil baron ancestors had done before him, but through ad revenue instead of oil wells.
With this being said, the administration is blameless in this instance. No need to get salty about the forum being down, though I will note the communication on the Discord wasn't all that great. Perhaps more frequent updates on the 'announcements' channel would help if this event should occur in the future. But we may as well accept our fate - the forum is by and large seen as vestigial by the powers that be, Eagleman excluded I think. The attention is on the beloved Discord, even when certain elements of the discord (for example - hots builds, hots tips, etc.) are far better suited to forum posting.
Also, I didn't realize Grunty was a lil bitch
