Default The War to End all Wars... Or Something Similar

Never been to Idle Thumbs, so I wouldn't know. I'm curious if I should.

Go visit. I love their articles (informative and incredibally funny) and Kingzjester's sketches for the articles are very cool. Don't miss their quote of the moment either.

Edit: I've read their forums and you can't say one is better than the other because they each have a different flavor. I also read the articles here at AG (obviously).

Perhaps I'm dense Marek, but that didn't explain anything to me. Sorry.

My theory is that the quality of the discussion was so low and the people were so bitchy that the forum just regurgitated everyone out...

Anyway, I voted for Advneture Gamers Forums.

This is pretty one-sided

Wouldn't it be more statistically relevant if it was held on neutral grounds?

Psssst....

The forums are kind of back up. You can comment on all that is Jack Thompson by clicking on the story links in one post (or lurk..).

There isn't a direct link to the forums but on the last news item of Oct. 20, if you click on one of those links, it'll take you there so you can comment on the news stories. But I don't think the full forums are back up.

This can be like GameFaqs, now, where people look for tentatively-related news items in order to hold off-topic discussions somewhere .
