Having spent 5 years here on this forum, I really enjoyed it, especially when this section was bustling with activity. However, times have changed. For a start, I'm the only OT moderator left on this forum.
With the lack of activity, I think it's time to shut the chat thread down for good. It's kind of a bittersweet moment for me since I used to browse and post in these threads even before I became a moderator.
That being said, if you wish to chat with other Minecraft Forum members about Minecraft (or anything really), you can check out the official Discord for the Minecraft Forum here: https://www.minecraftforum.net/meta/chat
The off-topic section will go on as per normal. I'll be hanging around and moderating OT & Mapping and Modding as well as posting in other sections of the forum.
Thank you guys for everything. It has been a fun ride and I'll see you around.
