F.DS is awesome!
« on: February 17, 2016, 11:58:44 am »

So I'm relatively new here, but I really like this forum and all of the people I've met through it so far. All the recent drama and negative energy has been rather sad to see, and I think there are so many great things about this place that we take for granted. I wanted to start this topic as a place for people to say all the wonderful things that they love about F.DS and hopefully move past recent events. (Let's not talk about those recent events though, just the good stuff.)

Personally, some of my favorite things are waking up in the morning and reading a new strategy discussion over breakfast, and the fact that Donald X himself posts here and participates in the witty banter on the site. I also really like that this is a hub for people to announce live streams, so I can watch people I didn't even know existed play Dominion and talk about it. What are everyone else's favorite things about F.DS?

(Also, I'm not really sure where to put this topic. I thought this might be a good place since it's discussion about the forum. Mods, feel free to move it if there's a better place.)

I also enjoy reading the strategy discussion, and am slowly learning that a lot of it is in Game Reports (which is fine).

One thing I particularly like is our Variants form. I think it's a great place to give and get feedback on card ideas from both experienced players and experienced fan card makers. It's just by far the best place for custom Dominion cards I've found.

Positive comments, good attitude, general optimism and good feelings... we gotta find a way to derail this.

Also, something something forum games.

Thanks, J Reggie!
This is something the community really needs with all the drama. You're the eye of the storm. Congratulations!

On a more related note, I appreciate all the discussion about the card Scout. I think everyone has become a bit more open minded, and people are (hopefully!) willing to stop ignoring Scout and start thinking about it for two seconds. We're making progress!

The best reason to lynch Haddock is the meltdown we get to witness on the wagon runup. I mean, we should totally wagon him every day just for the lulz.

I also love the Dominion strategy analysis that is all over f.ds, as it should be!

Articles, for in-depth, thought provoking analysis about particular ideas or cards.
Game Reports, (especially the Help! subforum) for tactical advice and board analysis.
Simulation, for theoretical matchups and challenges.
Blog front page (does this count?), for highlighting the best content.
Tournaments, especially the game reports during tournaments, for more high level play and analysis.

... And I do also enjoy the card contests in Variants. It's what convinced me to open an account and post rather than just lurk in the first place!

As unfortunate as recent times of drama have been, I find that they oddly highlight another one of the strengths of this community: many people not involved in these disputes chime in reasonably and respectfully. That's not 100% the case but I think the percentage is much higher than I see in most places on the internet (or maybe I've just become too jaded with the internet in general).

Also, I love how f.ds is a hub for and inspiration to organize many other things connected to the game: the twitch community, the wiki, Qvist's lists, youtube videos, various tournaments (online and IRL), IRL meetups. That's a lot of stuff, and I'm sure I've missed a ton.

Oh I have. I pop in there every now and then to see what crazy RMM game people come up with. But joining a game seems like too much of a time commitment.

Also, seeing how this is a meme that seems to usually be directed at new people, I just want to point out that I've been registered twice as long as you RR  ;)

Yay now I get to explain my joke. The joke was that you neglected to mention the forum games, so I decided to insert a dying meme instead of just letting it go.

For me f.ds is like a silent haven, where you don't need to prove anything or pretend you are something.
Beautiful forest of grotesque procrastination mushrooms grows here.

I don't know about you guys, but I've reached the point where checking the forum has become something of a subconscious habit. I can check it on my phone when I'm not in front of a computer to play actual games of Dominion. I've probably spent more time here on the forum than I have actually playing Dominion.

To be totally honest though, I spend a lot of time on the Hearthstone subforum ever since I started playing Hearthstone. I ceetainly enjoy it much more than the official Blizzard forum for it. The Other Games sub-board in general has a lot of neat stuff in there, and occasionally you learn about a really awesome game.

Recently I've started paying more attention to the RSP sub-forum. I really appreciate this little corner of the Internet where we can hold intelligent level-headed discussion about interesting and controversial topics.

To me, reading stuff here and posting is like waving at a baby in the line at the grocery store. You feel a little silly and weird, but if the kid giggles, you realize that - for whatever reason - you really needed this interaction today.

Also, the "hommage to the best card" thread.

Even though I am mostly a lurker I feel like I know a lot of you just from reading almost every article and most of the general discussion over the last 3 years.

This forum has done one bad thing though.  It slowly pushed my board game night from 100% dominion to 10% dominion because I haven't lost a game in a really long time.  One Night Ultimate Werewolf, Settlers, and Fibbage are fun I guess

Adobe from the drama, we've had, I think these forums are amazing. We have a lot of smart reasonable people, and usually this place is drama free. Also, this is a great place to get better at Dominion.
