I can't help but feel this place is a bit lonely. It would be nice if we had some way to advertise the place...I mean the occasional community project is cool but it doesn't really represent us or our values as a community. It feels like for now people just flock to the big sites (DW, Zdoom,Zandy) and don't even have a way to reach us. Also...the site could do without the annoying "please disable adblock" popups...those really put me off it for a way longer time than I'd like to admit. Perhaps some more cheerful default colors would help. Quake was a great game, but it's color palette wasn't quite it's selling point.
Oof I'm afraid that due to the very nature and purpose of this forum, our reputation is very low on mainstream Doom sites. Back in the day we would literally directly invite DW members that we deemed worthy of posting here. Honestly I'm fine with keeping this place small and cozy. Also amazingly none of the sentences in this post are connected to each other in any way

Memfy speaks truth yo. Forums seem to be the way to pontificate these days rather than communicate. The real value in forums is to be had with the content i.e maps and resources. To communicate come on over to the aforementioned Doomshack Discord:
Forums tend to go through a slow period as people head back to school / college / uni after the summer. People are either busy or have resolved to turn over a new leaf, to stop pissing away time on internet forums and actually devote themselves wholesale to their studies.
Haha Darknation I went through several of those phases before quitting both a really good highschool and an university...now I'm working minimum wage and have to deal with jarringly uneducated and ignorant people.
Unrelated question, how do you reload a save point in real life?
