There are 2 main problems with family forums:
- Staff has to manually set players up.
- When players are killed off, they retain access.
I know what I need to do to fix them, but the level of effort isn’t worth the tradeoff especially since most of our players are using Discord chat anyway.
So, given that, there is also a new leader option for “Discord Server” that leaders can use to link their players to whatever private discord server they wish. This link will show up on the player’s family page where the fam forum link used to be.
Family forums aren’t going away forever, but for the time being their limited use isn’t worth the confusion and manual effort to manage them.
