Here at Irregular Times we occasionally like to tweak things a bit, but every once in a while a bigger change is called for. A few years ago we decided to “upgrade” a discussion board we had going on by replacing it with a diary system in which anybody could write long-form articles and gain comments on them. To make a long story short, by private communication to us and by low use we figured out that people didn’t like it. It usually only takes us a few years to figure out our mistakes, and right on target we finally decided to let the diaries go. The diaries are still there, but we’re not going to upgrade them any more.
In their stead, we’re going back to what worked and what people liked, putting back a good old-fashioned discussion board. It’s called the Irregular Times Forum, and it’s wide open with possibility. You can register with an account to post topics, but we’ve also tweaked with the settings to allow anonymous posts and comments for secret agent types and desperados. Links to new topics on the Forum will show up automatically on the Irregular Times main page, over to your left, which we hope will keep the talk going.
Please let us know what you think, either here or… over at the Forum!
