With Atari SA doing more stuff recently, and gaming history still quite popular, has anyone considered a push to get new members to the forum? I got interested in Atari through gaming history videos on Youtube, but only started following current stuff after the Recharged series and VCS came out and piqued my curiosity. I bet there are more people who are interested in this stuff around their 20s like me

It's a nice thought and I hope it succeeds, but I feel like the world has moved on from forums and onto social media platforms. Certainly the AtariAge Facebook group is pretty vibrant. It's definitely an inferior experience overall versus a forum, but if that's what everyone wants, it's best just to adapt. With that said, AtariAge still has a reasonably strong forum, especially considering the ghost towns most other forums are these days. It's outlasted tons of them.

I like forums for how focused it is, social media is so broad and personal, this is a good place to talk about a hobby I am interested in where it doesn't really have to interact with my job, school, or the rest of my life. That's at least the appeal to me.
