I’ve been trying to get on these for MONTHS. I haven’t been able to because they just keep loading on every device I use. Laptop, phone, work computer. I thought it was shut down or something even though I could find the link… I’m just so confused on why it wouldn’t let me go through it.
But then I saw links from the Wattpad profile where one of hen actually worked, and so I downloaded Google on my phone I’m here. Ugh, it’s been so long…
And now I feel so much better because the NaNoWriMo forums got suspended and I didn’t have any other way to talk to other writers.
And it still only works on Google for me, not on Safari.
And no, NaNo is still down. They suspended the forums because of complaints (of some kind?) and the Board of Directors took action. So everything is in reading mode. It just happened yesterday because it was fine on Saturday and Saturday night, and I think a bit on Sunday morning (early) but I tried getting on around 10-12 and it wasn’t working (reading mode). They also don’t say when they’ll be back up…
Lol yeah, I’m not too sure how to feel about it. I think Avatar should not be a live action—it’s best animated.
rip oh no i’m using firefox, so maybe its a safari thing?
dude ur right i just skimmed it and tbh… i don’t need that level of shitshow in my life so i’m just not gonna use those forums.
i highly recommend checking to see if your region has a discord! i wouldn’t be surprised if the nano forums shut down for good tbh, so finding a backup place to talk with your fellow writers might be the best option.
I had no idea anything was happening in the NaNo forums since I haven’t logged into them in literally years, but from the message at the top of the board it sounds like Moms for Liberty has banned them to protect the children or something. I shouldn’t be snorting with laughter like this, it’s probably something serious, but it sure doesn’t sound like it. Just what exactly was the complaint from these 11 members, and how is the most vulnerable population there at risk? Why are kids allowed into the forums in the first place? They really need to have their own site instead of being allowed in with the adults.
I suppose this means that fixing the buddy lists has been moved down even further on their to-do list. Man, I wish they’d never moved the site to Discourse! It worked so much better on the old site. (ง︡’-'︠)ง
