This is our surrogate Quorum?
The forum is our surrogate Quorum. Think of it as the same great place to have conversations, just better indexed than Quorum.

True, yet in slower motion than Quorum.

I made us a new thread in General Misc.;  life in slow motion isn't always worse...

It's not, certainly not. And, it depends. Good thread title over there though, what's next, a postless posting...? ;)

Don't tempt me...

What?!!? No no no no nooooo... i want the quorum back....yesterday!!!

On a more serious note...please bring it back. It's what made this forum special vis-a-vis other fantasy book forums (ok that and its...special...members :D ;) ). I love the quorum.

Probably no quorum. Don't count on it at least. Data indicates that not having it dramatically increases forum posting.

And?
It just has its very own charm, so to speak, to talk in real time with fellow fans instead of the usual post structure. I know i will not make up for missed quorum "talks" in other post count. So i am not even sure that this is what it is. We probably have new members and also returning, older members who want to post about TUC and/or TGO atm.

So as said, i do hope you bring it back. It is its own thing...and it was something TSA had (a tradition, if you will) that no other forum i frequent has. I don't think you should kill it.
(mind you, this is speaking from a user stand point. If it is just too much trouble to implement it and/or keep it running, then that is another story entirely)

I have suggested banning TSA discussion in Quorum, but not really considered that implication fully.

Also, as far as implementation goes, its going to be more difficult than it was previously with the new format, unfortunately. Exactly how much more difficult is unclear at this time.

I probably used quorum more than anyone, and agree it was a great place. But it detracts from the forum proper, which is why most people are here. We'll figure something out at some point, but I dont have the time right now to mess with it and to police it, so it'll likely be a while yet, sorry!

*Ahem.* Next to Quorumtender, *I* miss Quorum the most ;).

Yeah, we don't even know if we can bring it back with this new theme yet. I'm sure it will return, Kellais, in some form :).

I appreciate your correctness :) . Its all about data though, and now, albeit skewed by many other factors, we have some.

Cool! Thanks, guys, for laying it out and considering it. And for tolerating my vehemence ;)

I am aware of how horribly flawed my data point is. That doesn't mean I'm not using it as justification anyway ;)
