Yeah, I hear many stories of that time, how it pretty much killed the loadstone. Shame too.
Personally, I don't see why people use Discord for posting and such. it's absolutely TERRIBLE for forum use!
Sure you can have different channels for stuff, but God help you if you want to try and see old posts for any reason. Anything people write will be swallowed up fast by newer posts and pretty much gone.
And Reddit, UGH, toxic, toxic, toxic, No WAY would I EVER post anything there.
But I wonder, then what medium does people use for sharing fan created work? If I want to share my game play, I can go to twitch and do livestream. If I have a question to ask, I go to reddit. If I feel talking to people about game stuff, I can find a discord channel with a civilized chat room. However, if I have fan-fiction? Art? I know there are site being setup by RP people sharing their stories via forum format, but it is very local. For some reason Lodestone is not appeal to them.
There is actually a place for fan fiction, I made an account there to throw my stories on but never used it.
I found it, 'Archive of Our Own'. LOTS of fan fiction of all kinds there, including ff14.
