Hi everyone,

While we investigate other options for forums, I've decided to leave these forums open for the people who have called this place home for the last (nearly) four years. I understand how important this forum may have become for you and that you all have built friendships here that you want to maintain. If we can find moderators who are willing to take it upon themselves to clean up bot posts and moderate content, we will keep these forums active until we find a new community forum solution.

If you would like to apply to become a moderator, please send me a PM. I will make selections this week. I believe we will only need two or three moderators. I will review previous post history and decide based upon your previous interactions with the community. Douglas, Sarah, and I will not be actively checking these forums, so it will not be a source for direct interaction with us - if you would like a quick way to touch base with us, please join our Discord community at http://discord.gg/limitedrungames or our subreddit at http://reddit.com/r/limitedrun. You can also find Douglas and I on Twitter at http://twitter.com/LimitedRunJosh and http://twitter.com/LimitedRunDoug.

If we notice that, after granting moderator privileges, the forums are still being overrun with bots or bot posts, we may still need to move forward with shutting these down. Unfortunately, PHPBB3 is not great security wise. It'll be a tough thing for me to do, but I think at that point we at least made an effort to allow this community to continue. :D

The Madman has come to save us from extinction! Sounds like a wise decision, let's hope it works out.

Thanks for this!

Please welcome Best1989 as our first official fan moderator! I'm pretty sure I've configured the settings correctly so all moderator abilities should be active!

Wow! First the forum is closing, then it's closing sooner and now it's staying open thanks to a newly deputized community team! What a whirlwind over the past couple days!

Shock and awe aside, this is such wonderful news! And congrats to Best1989 on being the first community moderator! I am hopeful that we will be able to police ourselves and the site we have come to call home well enough to make Josh proud of his decision!

Thanks for the confidence! I just did a quick run of the options and everything seems to be there, so I'm good to start!

I just hope that this is the "end" of this whole thing for the foreseeable future so it won't swing the other way once more!

Also that is a good pick for a moderator, I must agree.

Congratulations Best1989! It's a good thing there aren't any Best1988's or 87's in this place, or you probably would have been beat out!

Wow! Talk about a crazy ride indeed! I did not expect this twist at all. Thank you so much, Josh! Guys, I think this is a chance for us to try and rebuild the community. We have a strong core in this community, but apparently there really were people that felt this place got unhealthy (I'm honestly tired of the word "toxic" :lol: ) and moved on. I'm sure others simply prefer Discord, Twitter, etc. But there's a definite place for forums! Let's work together to make a strong, inviting community and keep each other informed off all goings-ons with LRG, video games, and the fight for physical!

Forums are staying AND two of my most awaited orders have shipped.

Happy days.

For the future though, in addition to simply deleting bot posts, please actually BAN them so they can't keep posting. That Labi1995 one was active for at least a week.

Looks like the link to the forums on the LRG store page has been removed. It will be interesting to see how people will even find the forums going forward.

It used to have its own link at the bottom of the main page where the Discord link is now.

Just noticed that.

You have to be aware that keeping the forums up and running doesn't mean that they will invest more in this. As Josh said, LRG staff will not be spending a lot of time here. They are pretty clear in their stance of moving forward with Discord, social media, mailing list and the main site as their primary ways of communication, so it doesn't surprise me that the forum link has been replaced with one for the Discord.

Maybe we could have a link leading here in the "More information" page, as the one in the "About" has almost zero visibility. You could see it as a step back, but...
