Look ma, I made a forum!
Tumblr seems to be where it's at these days, fandom-wise, but I know I'm not the only one reeling from the lack of discussion and conversational threads inherent to its format. I know lots of really awesome people there whom I'd love to actually talk to. Try to herd everyone back onto LJ/Dreamwidth? That horse has left the barn. And besides, I think I like forums better as fandom spaces better than LJ, heretical as that sounds--everything is topic-organized rather than date-/ownership-organized, so I can go post my thoughts on XYZ in an appropriate thread and not worry that I'm spamming everyone's flists or that, conversely, no one will see my comments because the post they're in has long since been buried.
So! A forum. It's not meant to replace anything, I don't think. More to fill (what I perceive to be) an unmet need in my corner of fandom.
