Closure of the Old Forums
At the outset of Vision’s tenure as the operator for PotBS, we had started up an official Discord Server. This proved immensely popular, not only from a talking-to-one-another perspective but also voice chats, building a greater sense of community. This was aided by an integrated linguistic translation system, that allowed players to participate in their own native languages. One unanticipated side-effect of this popularity was that the venerable PotBS Forums saw an equally great departure, and eventually were left with only one or two people logging in there each month. The decision was made to make a full backup of the Forums and take them offline. At some point in the future, we plan to convert that trove of historical posts into a searchable database, so new players and old can drill back down and use all of the valuable content in it.
