After creating these forums and doing it very carefully, I have to say (again) that unless the old forums used Tapatalk (an app that allowed for easier mobile browsing/posting), these forums are the best option for current-day forums. I thought long and hard about how I'd create them, but I also didn't want to wait too long before creating them.
However, the idea was that if you're at an AFI show, standing in line, you can browse via smart phone just as easy, if not easier, than browsing from your desktop.
Welcome! I'm from York, PA and I can attest to the interest levels. I know there are fans around, but having a central meeting place it awesome. Yes, there is a subreddit for AFI fans, but it's not as organized (same with Discord) as forums are; you have forums, categories, etc. to make it easier to look back on archived posts, etc.
Thank you for your feedback!
Thank you! I very much appreciate your support, both directly on here as well as Instagram and RTs on twitter. You've been my main online support and I very much appreciate it! Now, I feel even better about pointing out that DOTP ep to you.
