  1. That is a excellent point about the forums vs discord @Glitterwolf . It's one of my favorite features.
  2. Discord is a 100% real time activity data as compared to a forum which has a delay in it's metrics. Not much delay but the elements of discord, especially at the community level and discoverability that Reapers is at, allow you to have an almost pin point vibe of the community and it's activity level. I don't see much changing in there media as this forum and discord are outlets that help the entire brand. The only way any element of their brand gets changed, delete, transform is if the it has little to no activity and does not contribute to the whole that is Reaper. But I'm sure we all understand that. I personally have enjoyed these forums since I started painting in 2013. As the past 3 years I have become less and less (significantly less) active but I have encouraged painters I know to touch the forums. I'm a member of their discord and I will stay a member but I don't really pay attention to it. The activity level is to high for me to pay attention with all the other discords I own, manage or am a staff member of, but I am not your average discord user. Discord's metric's, at Reapers level, is freakin sick! Not to mention user friendly to both the users and the managers. As well as allowing members to pay-to-play for more personality in their experience. To be honest that element alone brings people in. I didn't believe it myself cause why would you by $5, 10$, etc a month for gif emoji's, wall papers, and gif avatars? I haven't bought on to that train yet but I certainly will once my gaming/painting outlets gain more steam and I can use emoji's of my own making on others discords. And lets remember this forum topic is a discussion so the topic of them potentially closing the forum down is a aspect of said discussion. Any one that reads this, panics and starts a rumor mill of that sort is just plain silly. I would hate to know this community has turned into a place where discussions of all sort can't happen. And a person or group are shut down in a discussion forum about a subject simply because "[reaper didn't say that]". I truly do not believe that is even a possibility in the minds of reaper. I typed that but that would be wrong. A business owner would consider it as I've detailed above about metrics. I Certainly would eliminate any of my outlets if they are not performing. Loyalty be damned. Marketing is going the way of the Tiktok/Reel/shorts... snap snap snap to attention spans that last less than 10 seconds. You can see by the amount I've typed here that the average person might read the first sentence of this post then stop. Whereas you all, forumnite veterans, will read the whole thing. To that end, please type bamboozled in your reply to let me know you read this far. 😉
  3. OOooOoo can't wait to see more. I totally forgot about Cyberpunk Red miniatures. Good mods so far.
  4. In role-play you can tell a good role-player verses an inexperienced one and/or a bad one. You can tell the same thing in debates, discussions and conversational skills. All that being said, don't sweat their reaction. Normally it's from information that doesn't exist. People will insert speculation and/or an appeal-to-authority in an attempt to make themselves feel better about a conversation/rp/dicussion/debate that they can't contribute to but want to.

    Only response to those that seem to measure up to your skill. 

  5. Running my own Discord for Arc of Fire Gaming Network I can tell that at some point in our Literate Role-play we will be getting a forums to go along side the discord. I think reaper would be doing a massive disservice getting rid of the forums. To speak more frankly I don't seem them doing that. They have an active discord to cater to the community that would not touch a forum. Reaper doesn't strike me as company that is going to slap it's users in the face like other companies. *cough cit cough* Managing a discord can get chaotic but if you keep and eye on it it's not really that bad. I've found, just like these forums, if you navigate the discord you want to be in enough you learn the channel and where to go. It's been a major asset for me as I do recordings and interviews in the my channel and the sound quality through their network is pretty smooth.
  6. I have an OttLite L139AB Task Lamp for travel painting that is amazing. On my desk I have reduced down to a Phive LED Desk Lamp, Architect Task Lamp but I am starting to get annoyed with it. It's just not bright enough for streaming. I'm now looking at those Daylight Company Lamp that @K2h2m3 recommended. But Geesh they are not cheep. The one I think will work for me is Luminos-U35600 and that puppy is $415 🤯 Although, that U35600 would work great and I'm thinking of mounting it to my existing wall mount I have for a boom arm. Might look for alternatives that are cheaper priced. $415 seems unreasonable for LED lighting.
  7. Week 2 of the new working-out-every-day program. I'm feeling way better mentally/emotionally/physically than I thought I would.
  8. Thanks ttuckerman! Most appreciated!
  9. Noice! That cowboy figure is really nice! I need's to find it!
  10. This model is wonderful, all the bits and bobs on it. I really like how you are making each sector of of the model it's own environment. Draws my eye to investigate and find new things.
  11. That stone work it the grass/moss between is really selling it for me! Looking good!
  12. Noice, Can't say I've ever seen a bee keeper miniature like this. Excellent little diorama.
  13. Iron Bristle Studios will be making a live appears in the realm of Twitch in 2021. Look out for links and tune in for more. If you would like to join my discord the link is in my signature. The discord is Arc of Fire Gaming (me) and Iron Bristle Studios (also me). I cater to the enthusiast in us all!
