Who doesn't have trouble adjusting to change. You guys will get used to it.

There's gonna be no need for any forums except the Flash and Wi/Ht forums, so the general section will indeed be removed.

1. Easier to troll.
2. Can't view previous conversations.
3. Too much talking at once.
4. Less organized.
Don't replace the BBS, it'd be a bad choice.
I hope they don't actually "Replace" the BBS, after all, that and flash is all I come here for.
And tons and tons of hentai porn.
NO NO! Cut the GREEN Wire!

Stop overreacting, everyone, it's not going to happen. There was a working chat in the past, and the BBS was fine then, so if there's a chat in the future, the BBS should be fine this time, too.

People will still make threads asking for help with their art, or to try to run art collabs and contests. There are things like reg lounges that would need somewhere to stay, too.

Our BBS system must be immortal. It chronicles billions of hours of wasted time over the last decade on newgrounds, and for someone to just erase that... newgrounds would lose a lot of fan base and support indeed. Which directly translates into revenue. so I'd say the BBS is safe, even if it will get less use.

You entirely missed the point. Why can't we KEEP general?

How the fuck did you get to that conclusion? If anything, that may just bring more users to the BBS and attract new members overall. Just because there is a new part of the website opening up along with a chat room that will only be popular for the first few months, that doesn't mean that the general forum will be deleted.
We manage to stay on both the flash and audio portal as well as the forums. Hell, we also manage to stay on StickAm, PalTalk and even the new multi-player games submitted here and there that we all go crazy for for the first week or so AANNNNDD also manage to stick to the BBS.

Is the chat alone able to carry the weight of a few 100 of participants?
Stickam can't even handle 20...
Besides, 150 people on a chat ranting through eachother, you won't get your voice through in any way...

The BBS wont be made obsolete as soon as the portals are released.
One thing that proves this is the flash portal being incredibly busy, and the flash forum is used loads for it.
When the art portal is released, then it would just be a gallery, with the art forum, we have an art collaberation AND comments all in one go.
Also, the General Forum is a lot easier to keep a conversation running in than an IRC. I remember back on the VF chat room, it was next to impossible to maintain a conversation with people. And even when you got one, maintaining it was hard to achieve even for 60 seconds.
The BBS, will most definately live on.

If you play SA-MP in a server with around 100 players, you'll quickly find that large chat rooms don't really work; however, mIRC works somewhat decent but good timing is needed to get your word across with other chat members.
All in all, removing the BBS seems rather pointless if it has a following.
It's time to kick bubble gum and chew ass..... and I'm all outta ass.
