      There's a whole checklist we'd need to go through before this place would get activity again. It'd be fucking hard to salvage a forum this dead.

      Well...

      1. Summon the admins back to the forum. The only staff that's even active here anymore is Zuptin and Billabo. Maybe that's all we need in terms of moderation, however we're gonna need the Cookie Clicker devs, at least, active here and posting stuff about the games here if we're gonna give people reasons to show up here instead of just taking the Discord account and never remembering this place.
      2. With that admin presence, have them start bringing things here that won't be in other places. Contests, for example, or post announcements for the games early here before posting in other places, to encourage people to check in here at least every so often.
      3. Return the link to Cookie Clicker AND post it on the Discord. We're gonna need as much inward traffic as we can get right now.

      I can't think of anything else right now, but I'm sure there's more that we'll have to do.

      There's a lot of things to revive this site. I've been here since...um...near the date this was created? I don't know to be honest, and I'm not going to forget this site.

      But y'know...Servers cost money, so...

      There has been hints pointing toward something being planned for the forum, but I don't know what, nor if those hints are still valid.

      1. Delete this forum
      2. Create a new one and advertise it a bit

      The fact that the Discord has so much activity heavily implies to me that the only reason the forum is so inactive is because all the admins have essentially abandoned it (as well as the fact that the community became so tightly knit that every time a regular left it was a massive blow to the forum). I think creating a brand new forum is probably the best course of action if Orteil or Opti are actually interested in having an active forum again.

      Tell me that this forum wasn't killed by people acting like stereotypical "mean girls".

      @Metronome The forum wasn't killed by people acting like stereotypical "mean girls".

      In all seriousness, I dunno what you're talking about. The forum died because people got bored of it and just stopped coming on. The forum just got so closely-knit together that whenever someone left, it was a massive blow to the forum, and people were less likely to join because of the shear amount of drama in the community. I have no idea where you got "stereotypical mean girls" from.

      Probably because there's nothing here worth sticking around for. Most people who want to talk about any of the games just go to Discord, and the forum games here have even been partially moved to a different Discord channel.

      Orteil even removed the link to the forum from Cookie Clicker, further signifying it's death.

      On a side note, everyone’s invited to our forum game discord if you need some games to forum.

      Two months since post date or last comment, whichever came last.
      I mean, it's not like you can get a comment without the post, but you know what I mean.

      Also hello from above the rock, this has been a feature for over a year now.
