I joined in 2011 as I was anticipating Skyward Sword and wanted to talk about my excitement and love of the series. I used to be very active here and make a lot of threads but I don't post nearly as much as I used to. I think things around here are a lot quieter in general which means less drama but also less discussion and activity. And I think this is the fate of forums in general, many of which have been killed off by discord. Which is an inferior way of discussion in my opinion. Forums seem to be able to create a much tighter knit community which you don't really get so much on discord. I expect forums may even make a comeback one day when people realise this but perhaps in a slightly different form that we have been used to.
