What Was Your Favorite Forum and Why?

Recommended Posts

When I was 15 it was an InvisionFree Harry Potter forum, I honestly can't remember the name but it was my first real forum and it was well organized and well run and the players were great, active and dedicated and there was no OOC drama for a lot of years. They allowed mature writing and kept to the canon without being overbearing about anything. Unfortunately, the head admin eventually left for work and the ones that took it over weren't so good at keeping their drama off the board so it ended up going under :( I still miss it.

I don't remember what it was called, it was many, many years ago, but there was this one forum I joined that was a sort of mash up of historical characters. When these characters died in their first lives they were sent to this new sort of world. It was really fun. There were so many different types of characters and the interactions were great. The admins and members were awesome too. I don't really remember why I left, or if I did leave before it became inactive, but I know the board eventually shut down.

I have honestly been associated with so many fabulous RPs and sites! There are so many people that I would like to applaud and say thank-you to for their awesome creativity. And, along the way, I've gotten tangled up with some real pooch-screw sites.

 

There was a western many long years ago that was based on the Young Riders that I thoroughly enjoyed and was sad when it folded due to lack of time on the part of the creator/Admin. I am currently in another western that I am enjoying a great deal and hope to expand there. Right now, I'm still feeling my way around.

 

On the graphics and site construction side of things, I had a Stargate SG-1 game for many years that was just beautiful. My co-Admin had designed the theme around a banner she created and it was all drop-dead gorgeous. Sadly, behind-the-scenes canon wars took over and I burned out due to ongoing drama and shut it down.

 

Currently - I enjoy the three games I created and manage (a fantasy, a TV western, and an 80's style action/adventure). I have to say I have a bias toward my western which is moving off Nova to forums (not a hit at Nova which I adore, but what I want from the game and its story is more suited to forum play). 

 

Kudos to all the creative folk out there!

I actually am just reopening my favorite forum. It's been 2 years since playing it, and I hardly have the time to be doing this  - but I miss it so much!

 

It's a combination site of several of my favorite fandoms, combined in an AU world where everything joins together and it's just...beautiful :D

Beat to Quarters had been my favourite. It was far from being perfect, but it had some of the athmosphere of collaboration I didn't succeed to replicate, no matter how much I tried. 

 

It was also one of the few sites which actually ended properly, after 2 years of running, with a blast (literally, since the three ships were sunk, with the indication that some survivors existed, but their stories were not told further, because there was no sequel).
