I miss it too, but its gone and will never be the way it was... with the help of social media, most internet discussion forums are not as bustling as they used to be. C&H has blown up internationally and our four heroes are doing well with their lives, so I doubt the hassle of bringing back and maintaining a web forum is anywhere at all on their To-Do lists.
What gets me is the potential of how great this place could actually be. Think about it: NO ONE (minus rai) gets banned/timeouts anymore, there's no strict rules about grammar or etiquette that were regularly enforced in say the GF or Media Forums, we can change our own names at will, we can even edit the title our own threads, the "status" feature on here is practically us all having custom titles, larger avatars that also import animated images better than the vBulletin one used to, and best of all; its all spame. ITS ALL SPAME. WE'RE FINALLY FREE.
But instead, I've seen fly-by-night posts from former regulars saying how much "this place sucks" or "spame is doo doo now", yet they rarely contribute anymore. Instead of making an effort to help the very forum that they're still attached to enough to visit and post in, its easier to just point a finger and say how "this place sucks now". There's only so much of us left that contribute almost daily, so there's only so much content to read. That's what can make a forum great, you get to become a part of what it is.
I typed a lot more than originally intended, as brevity is more my style... but instead of just highlighting this text and deleting it like I want to, because I prefer to post as unseriously as possible in spame, I'm just gonna let it fly and hit submit. Take from it what you will, it probably doesn't make any sense. I'm probably wrong, as it feels that half the time I don't convey what I'm really saying and end up looking like an idiot. But I am an idiot. So billy-goat you. I love you.
this forum is mildly great, but the reason people dont get banned anymore is mostly because 1) we have removed traditional rules that kinda fell apart (which is good) and 2) we dont really get new people (which is not good)
we need new people- i mean, this is somewhat okay but new people would be good. unless we ourselves start generating content and bringing new people here, the best option is to be reimplemented into the main site BUT that isn't going to happen until the admins decide that the forum is necessary or good AND a nice representation
is it necessary? i would say no. they are very popular on social media and their content does not appeal to our types specifically. they use a broad approach to make a lot of casual fans and, to be honest, we are not their demographic. the admins are all smart and funny but they make comics for 16 year olds. our discussions arent necessary, and technical problems can be resolved via social media. i am unsure how to fix this
is it good? yes. we are good. we do well. we are a unique and great community and we create nice content and are mostly sincere and constructive.
is it a good representation? not really. objectively, this temp forum does not look good and it isnt welcoming (see: usertesting review). it is not something the admins want their names attached to, and i get it. but we cant do much about that. i mean, i can try to help it by moderating and not having adbots overflow the place or by NOT HAVING THE WHOLE billy-goatING THING SHUT DOWN BECAUSE YOU SHOULDNT BE EMBEDDING PORN but there is only so much that we, the community, can do. but also, we are kinda weird and niche and if we are to be a good representation, we need to have good discussions and be somewhat welcoming and reasonable. solution: make good contributions. not everyone has to be funny or smart or either or both.

i dont miss the site per se (tho the old layout and colour scheme will be missed) i miss that you could come online and multiple threads would be active in spame and the rest of the forum would have a few threads worth of activity to catch up on at least

i doubt it, and i for one would be against that returning. i reached a point where we had so few members that the layout became stifling to conversation instead of being conducive
tech forum was just bots showdown was fan art and bots splitting media into three made sense at the time but once the volume of threads dropped then it became pointless and the help forum (comment dump?) served a technical purpose but other than that it was a pile of shit
