That and everything is bitesize now, so the extra attention span needed to learn is probably a bit much. Not to mention that web forums often look like trash on mobileHow hard can it be to use forums? I learned how to do that all on my own.
Granted, this was back in a day when they were the main means of communicating on the internet. Nowadays it's Reddit and stuff, which is greatly
dumbed-downsimplified compared to a forum. So I guess when that's as much as you usually have to learn, other mediums seem overly complicated instead.
Reddit is getting better with profile pics and pinned profile posts but it still feels like you're another face i guess. But when teh main reason of formus was to meet people, things like discord really do take its place. I mean, it replaced the Serebii chat.I don't like Reddit's form of conversation and it's lack of customizing your own posts. And Discord is just a chat room, so it's just kind of useless for me. I guess because everything is on there people use it out of convenience of needing one or two accounts at most but having everything so centralized and with lack of customizability leaves Reddit lacking.
