Yeah, I know that feeling.

My interest in metal hasn't waned in many ways. But I am less ...actively interested in metal. Don't actively check out new things as often as I used to, don't rabidly gobble up concerts like I used to etc. though my actual amount of listening to metal probably is around the same as it's been since I was 16 and embracing that I liked other genres of music as well.

I'm not trying to leave this place, but feeling like I don't have much to say when I'm here is a bit unfortunate and doesn't motivate me to spend as much time here. I hope you don't leave though, cuz it's nice to see familiar old faces posting when I'm here.

Internet forums may be going the way of the dodo thanks to Reddit, which isn't a terrible thing.

...should we make a subreddit?

A fact that has been largely lost to our history... one of the reasons I created metalsetlists in the first place: another site (Iron Maiden's IMBB) changed their software and a lot of people lost reviews / thread / data / whatever.

Not everything has to become Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, etc. What happens if those companies start to do things that users hate or go out of business? metalsetlists has already survived the extinction of internet behemoths. No doubt we'll survive more.

I'm glad to see you say this. Another of my favourite metal sites shut their forums down earlier this year in favour of Facebook groups and Disqus comments on their reviews & articles. There's nothing really wrong with doing that, but I've always liked dedicated forums for this kind of thing.

Not necessarily, because I don't have the slightest idea as to what it is either.

The only thing I know about Reddit is that one of my co-workers frequents the page. Sometimes I'll mention something to him and he'll say "Oh yeah, I saw that on reddit". I'm not sure what the page is but I guess they have a lot of news related items from all over the world.

Yes, I've just always assumed it's a site which trawls news from everywhere else and collects it in one place. Kind of like a universal RSS feed. I'm only basing that on the name though, and the fact that everyone on the internet is lazy, so I can see how that would appeal.
