With the forums now closed forever, what is the most "active" discussion part of the community? I would say it's still the subreddit but even though it's gained 2,000+ members in the year and a half since 6.0 there's probably no more than 80-100 people online at any one time now. 2-3 years ago this was up to at least 500, if not more. Newer threads are being created less and less often. The Joco Discord also seems pretty active, but the chat functions and overall "fragmented" base of the platform has kept me away, it just seems like a directionless mess.
As for the Bunker ... sheesh, is it now dead, too? Only probably see 3-4 new posts a WEEK from what I've been able to gather. I expected the Bunker to get pretty hoppin' as forumers flocked over to here for a less-moderated and draconian platform after the official forums closed but that hasn't happened. Perhaps the closure of the forums meant the closure of the game for some of them and that was the final straw?
The community has really collapsed that much, huh?
It's funny because Tempest just had that server of his lying around. We used to message one another in a more closed-off friend group for games and screenshot sharing but he proposed we make something of the old discord server instead.
Now in comparison to it's old self, it's pretty hefty.
It's a little heartbreaking, the decisions that were made by official parties to get to this point.
