|So for some list of reasons, some of us decided it might be time to basically start a new forum, a Fear Mythos Forum 2.0.
There it is. I still need to work out some kinks, and I need to decide on the admin list. If you have any questions or anything, this is the thread for that.
This forum might not be final. Maybe we'll just stick to this one. But I personally like the idea.

|May I ask wherefore this new forum desire comes from?|

|Off the top of my head:
1: We'd been meaning (that is, myself and some other people in charge of this forum) to re-organize some stuff for a while now, like to change the Fear section to a more general and structured Workshop and stuff, and we could still do it now but it's harder to do it when a forum already has tons of threads.
2: This new forum will have a No Hunter policy, applied much more vigilantly and consistently than has been done in this current forum.
3: The most important reason: Our current forum rather infamously went un-administrated for quite a while, as Ceaseless Wanderer who created the forum left the mythos, and as LizardBite who was the sole admin for a time also left the mythos, and.. every admin and mod since has, too, left the mythos. There was a definite gap where this forum was just kinda... moderated by its own users. And during that time, we picked up a large list of issues, such as spam accounts, inconsistent or outright unclear rules, and.. well, stuff that is usually the admin's job to fix. I was eventually appointed new general forum admin, but by the time I was there was such a considerable backlog of stuff to clean up and straighten out that it would have either taken me way too much effort to fix minutely, or I could have done some more sizeable changes and people would have reacted quite negatively to the change. So I decided to try making a new forum, to start with a clean slate.
(Bonus 4: Plus, I for one think sitting around in a forum full of abandoned old threads is a bit overwhelming and depressing. We never really had a clear policy for what to do with those old threads, and now with a new one I feel like I can take more liberties, or at least pose questions to the community about how to handle it.)

|Might we discuss a New M.O. for how content runs there?|

|We most certainly can. My current plan is fairly self-explanatory, based around the old forum's system but a bit more organized. The mythos parts are mostly based around medium, then divided into whether the thread is for a work that is ongoing or complete. Still needs a bit of tweaking.|

|Would you prefer to discuss it on this forum or the new one?|
|Posted by: DJay32 Mar 2 2016, 03:33 PM|
|I don't really mind.|

|Over there, then.|

I've imported all the old skins so you can make it look like theonlythingtofear if you want. "Genera" is the default old-skin.

|Is anyone still on this forum? Note that we have a new forum! It's pretty quiet, but nowhere near as quiet as this one is!|
