SmackJeeves is making a lot of controversial changes to their website, including removing the forums, removing private messaging, removing custom site designs, replacing "fans" with "support" (which are kind of like 'likes,' I think?) and starting their own app and currency system.
It kind of sounds like they're trying to be tapas with less features.
People on SmackJeeves, myself included, are pretty disappointed by this. I'm curious about the opinions from people outside there.
Do you guys think these changes will promote traffic from places like tapas or are they shooting themselves in the foot?
Are those of you posting on both websites planning on sticking with posting on both? Personally, I am undecided.
Will there be an influx of people here? This is the only other webcomic forum I can think of besides r/webcomics, which has a bit of a different focus. Edit: Just found out ComicFury has a forum as well.
Or do you guys not even care? Is SmackJeeves already as dead as I fear?
