    I like the idea of the forums breaking off, especially since mainsite FA is owned by a corporation and we don't need corporate censorship mucking everything up.

    That would be interesting. The name would probably change though; would affiliation continue you think?

    I didnt realize that it was corporate.

    I only found out this morning about the issues to FAF, which shows just how much attention I pay to them. It certainly wouldn't be the first time a commercial site has decided forums are more trouble than they're worth, and it looks like more companies are deciding feedback isn't really that important to them

    Yes, IMVU runs as a corporate structure, with investors and such. It has run this way since its founding, and now FA is owned by IMVU. Affiliation with the forums would have to change to prevent IMVU making things worse.

    I highly doubt FAF is going down for good.

    They're owned by IMVU now, and if I'm right that's a corporation. Since the forums aren't owned by them, I'm assuming people can talk as much shit about them as they want.

    Welp, and that's fucking that. Goodnight, sweet prince.

    If this doesn't mean FAF getting nuked from orbit, should it come back we can expect the place to be sanitized to hell and back, patrolled by jackbooted guard dogs handpicked by Chase or co.

    "The forums will be offline for the next while as we sort out a few things. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience."

    I wonder what they meant to say after "for the next" because "for the next while" doesn't really make any sense. Next few days probably? For the next week? Guess we'll see.
