Kobold Forums Are Moving to Google+

Jiro_ecstaticBig news! At 6:00 PM PST, we’re officially moving the Kobold Forums community to some shiny new digs: the brand-new Kobold Press community on Google+.

Why the move?

  • Google+ ┬áhas a strong community of tabletop RPG fans, many of whom use it as a platform for running games using Hangouts
  • If you have a Google Account, it’s easy to activate G+ and join the Kobold Press community; if you don’t, it’s easy to set one up
  • It has great features (such as video integration) which open up possibilities for cool online community events

Most importantly: it lets us spend our time talking to gamers instead of wrestling with technical issues and playing Whack-A-Mole with spammers. Seriously, we hate those guys. (Spammers, not gamers.)

Which brings up another thing: rather than abandon the forums to spam, or have them live on in a sad half-life where people are posting but we’re not replying, the Kobold Forums are going to shut down completely at 6:00 PM and disappear from the site. They’ve served us well for many years, and we’ve had great discussions there, but it’s time for us to move those discussions to a new home.

Let us know if you have any questions, and we’ll see you at the new place!

How sad to abandon all that history. I occasionally go back and look up items, but… Oh well, nothing lasts forever.

Is it possible to archive the old forums in some convenient way?

Gotta say, I *hate* the Google+ interface.
