Title: About this forum
Post by: Wolf on August 22, 2022, 05:14:04 PM
Not sure how you found our little community in this strange corner of the internet but welcome, if it’s 4 AM make sure to grab a coffee.

So why does this forum exist, well this personally is my final project or forum I’ll create. After years of trying to build my own website, I managed to build up a little community on the side so I decided to build this forum for myself and the community to also have a space to expand and grow. I first started making forums all the way back in 2007 so I wanted to recreate the dynamic environment that used to exist 10 or 15 years ago when everyone and the mother were creating oddball forums.

While social media seems to be the norm today in my eyes and other people's eyes I’ve seen on other forums social media is honestly a free for all with no organization, it’s like a room full of unsupervised toddlers with fireworks and a box of matches. Forums are organized into categories and subcategories so it’s easier to find what you’re looking for along with it being easy for sites like Google to find results too. A long-term repository of information or readily searchable information is also a given pro on forums.

I personally think social media is just the biggest tax one can have on their mental health which is why I built my own space for my community that’s safe and I can control. Along with the shady reputation, social media companies have for selling your date and tracking you everywhere you go is something you don’t have to worry about with this forum. Plus the toxicity of people on social media is a big deterrent too. I personally think people should accept pineapple on pizza.

But enough bullsh*t about social media companies what’s the future for this forum? Well for one it provides a place for the Wolfj Minecraft server with access to command lists and support for the server. But the main point for this forum is to be community driven where it grows with the community. The community has input on what they like and what they don’t like or what they might like to see. I’ve created many read-me’s on the forum to help new users or people who don’t understand how forums work or want a better understanding of how a forum works.

I’ll end this off by saying all are welcome in our community if you want a safe space away from the rest of the chaos that is the rest of the internet so long as you follow our rule. I truly hope this forum can grow and thrive in the coming years as well it won’t be going anywhere and I will also keep content flowing myself but I welcome others to help with that content flow and to help us grow.

Thank you very much for reading this little message and I hope you better understand this little forum now. I’ll keep this topic open for any questions people might have but for now, have a wonderful day. Much love from the Wolf!
