4) Which forum is the forum for having a good time?
There isn’t too much ‘good times’ in either JFF or General.
I dream of a different subforum that isn’t sort of rule-free or strict but sort of in between.
Just for Fun – a forum for forum games, hardly a place to talk about general topics in a relaxed, joking manner
What JFF should be is only forum games and shitposting. The ideal in between hypothetical subforum should hold all the drawing threads, stickies and actual discussion similar to that of General. In General it is basically specific discussion on a certain topic and periodical great news. Actual discussion is allowed in General, just not to casual like “What do you like to do in winter”. There isn’t any relaxed discussion other than the IRC, which is really, really stunning because all the relaxed users moved to the IRC and later just vanished. JFF is very fast-paced, immature and cruel while General is sometimes relaxed yet knows to stop being relaxed.
About my hypothetical subforum.
Fairly great sticky threads like the Funny Picture General or the Family Photo threads get buried very often.
I’m fairly sure great artists like Natsuru and the art thread brigade don’t want to see threads as LQ as this, this, or this when there is a better alternative by posting it in another subforum without getting forgotten. I know a lot of threads that are sticky are getting lost and forgotten, and shitpost on to purposely get lost forever.
That would be so cool for a little more organization between the carefree and the strict. I think there are a fair amount of people who want a little more order because general conversation on the General Board is somewhat disallowed and the same general conversation on the JFF Board will just be buried or shitposted on.
Here are some examples: Why?! | This hurts too.. | There isn’t any shitposting, but people just can’t read the instructions.
Meanwhile, something as honorable as this (godspeed BSoD) is merely just a great example of a very intellectual thread getting buried under games and others.
TL;DR There isn’t an ideal subforum to hang around in. At least yet. Everything is carefree or too strict. IRC is the only thing that holds casual discussion.
