Broken Forum appears to be alive and active.  My memory was that Lum had completely sealed it off during Goobergate, but a quick glance shows that only a couple of the subforums are private now.

F13 is still the main descendant of LTM. I think there are more lum era remnants here than on broken toys.

new lum is not the old lum

it really has precisely zero to do with broken toys (except for, of course, lum himself)

Most of broken toys came from the QT3 schism.

QT3 was more of a fukushima style event rather than a schism, and yeah, that's really the reason BT exists as it does.

Man, QT3 was a terrible forum.

I miss Corpnews once in a while it had a few old familiar names that never made the switch to f13.

That's because they didn't like me and f13 wasn't supposed to last because CorpNews was the ONE TRUE HEIR

or something

They should have conceded when it became obvious that f13 was thriving and they were dwindling.

Well. It was never a competition for me. Also, I can ban people and they'd bitch over there and it was hilarious.

For my money, the really highbrow critique went to Grimwell.com 1. f13 and Corpnews are where the community went, but the high-level discussions didnít necessarily go with them.

It led to so much drama and hilarity from the successor sites. We'll never get anything like that again since nobody really cares about MMOGs anymore.

Iím just glad all I have to do these days is read and occasionally post. The hassles and headaches of who hated who and who went where combined with changing forums and registering accounts multiple times in multiple places were annoying. But then at 20-22 I tolerated that more than I do now at almost 40.

Jesus, just checked and I am coming up on my 10th year here. 10 straight years of adding nothing important what-so-ever to the conversations!

I registered in 2004 which blows my mind. I didn't realize I'd been here that long. The dude who pointed this forum out to me isn't even in my life anymore. Also, high-five from another person who doesn't add much to the conversation around her.

The longest I've lived in one place was 12 years, and I was at my old job for 17 years (which still feels like my entire life -- it was just over half of it by the time I left, technically).  Another couple of years and f13 will be the single most enduring thing to ever be a part of my life on a daily basis.  I don't even still read the same webcomics that I read 16 years ago.

 ACK!

Hah. Thanks Tale I never saw that thread at the time.

Neither did I. It came up when I was reading this thread and idly googled: corpnews forum f13

I first found Waterthread due to its intelligent discussion of MMOs. I went over to corpnews, then to f13. I had no history with LtM or the in-jokes on Waterthread, but I could understand because I was a founder of the first large Australian EverQuest guild and many of our people were UO vets. We went on to start the first Aussie-based power/raiding guild in EQ. Then I played SWG in a guild run by Tigole's former EQ officers, and we got into the WoW beta early.

Somewhere in the middle of all that, I needed the level of discussion Waterthread/Corpnews/F13 offered. F13 is still always ahead of the curve on things I like now: I first learned about Game of Thrones here, the Elite: Dangerous kickstarter, many other games, movies and TV shows, and I get to discuss politics in the Trump era here. You are all part of how I use the internet. Thanks. I once had a job interview (no, not this) where I was asked which sites I visited daily, and I truthfully mentioned this one. I didn't get the job, so fuck you all too.

I like that this thread has gone on for two pages and a couple weeks even though Ratman didn't check back in after the first day.
