Faid. It needs to be a thing.

For discussion of the forum itself. "Forum-ception" jokes and the like are frowned upon.

It was the (semi) lawless area of the original forums. You had to specifically opt-in/request to join. But basically outside of legal concerns there were no rules in FaiD and mods didn't mod anything.

Sort of had its own culture in a similar way to how the Time thread had its own culture.

Oh yeah, Free as in Destitute. I'm not really sure if that's something I want for this forum; maybe I'll add it if more users request it.

I posted the link in the FaiD Discord so right now about quarter of the userbase seems to be from there :mrgreen:

Most active long time users in old forum were in FaiD, so I rather suspect it wouldn't be necessary here. This whole forum will be like FaiD.

Okay, I think that's enough support. Before I go and set up the forum, though, can someone give me a refresher on how FaiD worked? I remember there being a bit more to it than just "lawless", but I don't quite remember what.

It wasn't visible to everywhere. You had to have permissions to view and post in it. But other than that, it basically was just random discussion threads that were slightly less moderated. My favorite thread was where we spectated and discussed other people's arguments/disagreements that occured within the forum.

So is there going to be a usergroup you join wondering what it does and then go "hey, I didn't see that before" on the board index?

Hmm, it looks like non-logged-in users (and people who aren't in the group) can see posts in there, which isn't how it worked in the old forum (and I'm sure people would prefer if it worked how it did).

That's weird, I remember seeing the forum even though I wasn't participating.

I think the forum showed in the list of forums on the home page up but you couldn't see anything in it.

I don't think it was visible at all. archive.org confirms it wasn't visible to non-logged-in users - no way to prove it for users not in the group, but I certainly don't remember being able to see it (because I didn't even know it existed until I'd been on the forum for several years).
