It's pretty commonplace and understandable to most casual or even the more dedicated members that it seems as if Sasuke Maniac is slowly dying, especially with the volatile nature of the Sasuke brand in Japan. Never mind the fact that the future of "forums," with other options and services (Reddit, Discord, etc) becoming more and more popular, leave forums in the dust as a relic of an age long gone.
We are not abandoning the SMF forums, but we are giving members a supplemental place to maintain Sasuke and related discussions in addition to the forums; as a way to hopefully increase member activity overall. Sometimes if you're having a conversation with someone, it's easier to talk to them via an instant message (like on Discord) than to wait for them to reply to a thread or private message on the boards.
Discussion, research, and general upkeep of the Sasukepedia wiki and it's subsequent rebirth away from Wikia/Fandom will be managed primarily on the Discord, where the Wiki Mods can have quicker access and responses to Wiki issues going forward. Again, we are not abandoning SMF, we are merely supplementing it and (hopefully) encouraging more activity.
You may join the Discord server at any time by clicking the following link, and/or adding the invitation code to your server list in your Discord client.
Due to inactivity in the Discord server; we have made the decision to close the server, effective immediately. If you're still interested in using Discord as a form of communication among other Sasuke and NW fans, please feel free to partake in other community-run servers.
