We know the imminent G+ shutdown is lingering in the back of all our minds!

We know the imminent G+ shutdown is lingering in the back of all our minds! Before we get sucked into the black hole that can be the holiday season, we would like to gather some intel on where and how our fans would like to transition this community.

Some of you may already use Discord or Reddit, but we know some people find those spaces difficult to navigate. That said, some people want to avoid using Facebook for gaming conversations. While there might not be a perfect space, we鈥檇 love a medium in which everyone feels comfortable free to engage, and able to easily reach out to us with questions about gameplay, mechanics, etc.

In addition to options like Discord or Facebook, we鈥檙e also considering opening up our own Magpie forums on magpiegames.com as we revamp the site over the next couple of months. Please let us know if that option seems of interest to you!

Let the polling commence! And, of course, more detailed feedback in the comments is always welcome 馃檪

  1. With pleasure. I mean distributed social networks, with solutions like Diaspora*, Friendica, Hubzilla, Mastodon, Pleroma, Plume… I am currently testing the first four and will reduce my presence to the one (or, at most, two) I’ll prefer.

    I am on several Discord server and find that this media doesn’t support a real asynchronous conversation, nor reading later. You have to be connected and available at the right time to get an info.

    Reddit, I simply don’t get it. Not really to my taste. (But it is better than Twitter / Mastodon.)

    Forums aren’t bad, but you can’t follow a person.

    Discord, Reddit are kinda social networks in the sense that you can have several different interests on the same site, which is much more efficient than isolated solutions like a forum. Social networks are better.

    To Facebook, I won’t go willingly. I have an account but avoid going there as much as possible.
