    Hey, if you guys are looking for a place to stay after OJ, we have a site we're running that might interest you. We serve a very similar experience to OJ as well, so I think it might be in your interest, we're also working on a few One Piece themes that you might like. ;)

    s u g o i desu . n et (remove the spaces)

    Feel free to join.

    We have quite a few OJ members there as well, so I think you'd feel right at home!

    This is actually the second best option.

    First being Reddit or Discord.

    I doubt its moving over there as its still a established forum and as a user thats on that place it feels weird

    I get what you mean.

    If there's anything I can do to make the experience there for you any better, feel free to let me know about that too.

    I know SD won't ever be as good as OJ in terms of community, but if it's in any way an opportunity for people of this community to still have a way to stay in contact with eachother even after the site closes down, I hope our platform can be an outlet for you.

    That name sounds familiar xD It was the same place where @Rohan invited me to join years ago, back when Otaku Central forum was shutting their operations down. I never joined there in the end, and even Rohan is more active here now. :)

    Till OJ is active, I won't join any other forum because I want to continue to enjoy my time in this forum till its end. :)

    Which is also a testament to how great Oro Jackson was. Many admins/staff of other forums quit their older forums and joined OJ. :cool:

    Completely understandable, I'd want to do the same with any site I invest a lot of time in as well.

    forums are much better than facebook/reddit/twitter because you can do a lot more for the RP art on them in terms of linking media/coloring/different fonts etc. and it is just more aesthetically pleasing imo

    though I would be down to do a discord RP either voice or txt

    With paid forum and renting a server the downside is obviously paying.... so let me ask this:

    why does anyone use a forum is reddit/discord is free? Isn't there a revenue that comes from owning/running a forum that would even out the cost that it takes to rent it?

    or does the only revenue come from people's donations on the forum? That doesn't make sense to me... how does anyone have a website then? Maybe just ad revenue... idk if we are against that

    Our site has rent paid for a few years. We also have Xenforo installed so it shouldn't be too unfamiliar to OJ either.

    It is not just that. If features are needed then those features need to be purchased individually and paid yearly. Most of the Xenforo features are expensive. So it will take a lot of funding to maintain.

    Most people go for free forums. That way you don't pay anything. Paying for features is optional. Forum Revenue could come from advertisements but that means there must be a big userbase who would cause adclicks.

    Donations are also a source of revenue but sometimes it is not enough to cover the costs (As Div mentioned).

    When I look at these big Xenforo forums, the only way they are able to keep it afloat is because they have lots of money.
