Discord is leagues better than this old forum. It's lived out its usefulness but now they're obsolete.

Forums must exist with a purpose. For here, that purpose was the main site. But now that the most users of the main site aren’t active and the site is legacy, the forum no longer has purpose. Places like UltimateGuitar and other super massive forums won’t die simply because they have a very specific and active purpose (and are great for holding old information). But I would say for most, the age of the forum is gone.

You can argue a casual forum can still be fun, but a forum with no users is simply not great. Regardless, for casual stuff, Discord is way better.
