Default Farewell to an experiment...Teams

Unfortunately, due to the lack of interest and development from users regarding Teams here on the forums, we feel its necessary to end our trial run of the concept. Due to the fact that the teams are essentially serving as nothing more than isolated discussion sections for sections that already exist, we will move the discussions of each team to the appropriate sub-forum here on the forum to not let the discussion and contributions go to waste.

Any questions or comments are welcome.

So meh.

If I had any idea we had teams I'd be up for it. It sounds like fun, maybe if we advertised it a bit more, made it sound more appealing we could re-open the teams idea?

If we do can I be in your team Dacon?

I lol'd.

That said, none of the teams that were created appealed to me, hence my non-joinage. But I didn't really care one way or the other anway.

I joined said teams, just couldn't really think of much to say.

Something like Great Justice (as an example), which is for serious discussion, is, to my mind, gonna require a bit more insight and forethought as to what one could/should/would post about. Bitching about the economy/political bullcrappery in the US isn't going to hold any interest for most people. Religion is always a touchy subject, etc.

In the case of teh music, I'm a musical neophyte. I don't know shit about music, so I sit back and watch, and post from time to time.

So anyone want to postulate and put forth some intelligent reasoning as to why the teams didn't get used after people bitched so loudly for them?

Maybe people wanted to see if they bitched hard enough you would actually put effort into making a teams section only for them to ignore it and go "Muahahahahah"

OR

Maybe people didn't see how being in a team benefited them, If there was more of a team spirit, competitive sort of thing, if we held competitions between teams then maybe people would feel move inclined to join a team.

They weren't complete revivals of the teams on acf, or at least weren't similar enough for some folks to be comfortable with them.

Bah, people just need to get over the fact that this isn't ACF and just move on already. _

That pretty much. It seemed like the Teams made could have been made into sections for the forum... or pretty much were pre-existing subforums. That said, I know shit all about politics, dick all about comics, and music... eh. They needed to be more generic regarding general chat imo as opposed to a separate topic.

You must have a lot going on your mind, I suppose.
Yeah, but I'd rather have nothing for a change. How do you do it?
Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

Because people want what they can't have.
