Facewank and twathead are crap. I refuse to visit twathead and only have a facewank account to have the odd chat with an old school friend, ie rarely!

Forums rule.

Does anybody else remember that RG Forum flash game that Jimbo made where Krusty was the final boss? :lol: . Think I still have it somewhere on one of my PC's.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I still lurk from time to time, but apart from rp2mp, I don't spend much time on forums. Life is just too busy at the moment.

"Rise from your grave"

I know this gets mentioned all the time but the forum gets deader every year.. Most of the old guard no longer post and even the Play events garner very little interest!

The "forum in decline" topic is certainly in decline. :)

Weird, I was thinking there was far fewer pretty arguments & name calling & more discussion of things in the last few months.

Weird, I was thinking the games discussion is the worst it's ever been. It's the same old regurgitated topics that have been done many times before about things that have already been talked to death and weren't that interesting first time around. Spectrum vs C64 ffs. Forum reminds me of a dog constantly eating its own vomit.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Surely commenting on the forum being in decline in a thread last posted in 2 years ago is testament to the fact it isn't?

Why do people who keep whinging about both the state of the forum and magazine keep coming back to whinge more about it? There is more to life surely than continually participating in a bad habit you don't even like.
