Are forums a thing of the past?
Today we are going to talk about forums. Are they completely outdated? Are they even useful?
Should you spend some time on forums? It's funny but the younger generation who grew up with Facebook and Instagram, probably have no idea what a forum really is.
So here is my take on the whole thing.
All the details in today's episode.

Some people say man forums are so outdated and stuff, but I am always, always amazed about some people on the forums. So you have different types of people on forums.
So there are people who are not saying anything. So I sometimes I think I could be one of them. In most cases, I might actually ask a question or something like that. But there are some people who are just there and they don't necessarily start threads or something, but they will go and get information.
Forums are a great resource. I'll tell you afterwards how you can actually use forums, but it's actually a really good resource.
Then you have the trolls or, you know people who are just I mean, there are some people who are so angry. I'm like, dude, you don't have anything else to do during your day. Some people are there just to insult everybody. Oh, you idiot, you moron. And then this is a dumb question. And I mean, I'm like, dude, what? I mean, what's your problem? Like, you know, don't you have anything other to like anything better to do during your day?
So I see some of these people I mean, on this forum right now and there is this guy who’s a leader. But I don't know what kind of leader this guy is because the only thing he does is call everybody an idiot pretty much the whole day. This guy must have a bitter and very sad life, I guess. I don't know.
But anyway, I actually spoke to someone who knows the dude, so I imagined the dude very differently. But like now it's quite young actually. I mean, this guy this guy is an idiot anyway.
There are a lot of different people, but there are some people. I mean, some of these guys, they're helping everybody. And I know some people ask me, dude, what what's their motivation? I mean, they're answering all the questions and stuff like that, you know, explaining everything they're doing and just sharing everything.
So for example, some dude shared something and was like, oh, man, this is really cool. You should try it. And I'm like, yep, sounds good. So yesterday I started trying it, but I hit a roadblock because his instructions were not super precise and it was using something that I'm not super familiar with.
So I asked the dude, I am like, well he actually said, well if you if you have a question or something, feel free to private message me and I'll help you. So that dude never answered. And in the comments, there was a guy, who said, oh, yeah, that's cool. I just set it up. I'll see how that goes. So I was like, well, you know what, let me try and ask this guy. Maybe he's nice enough to help me out a little bit.
So I sent him a private message saying, well, dude, seems like you nailed it. Can you help me out here? And the dude's been helping me for the last, I don't know, like hour, hour and a half. You know, he’s like, yep, you do this and you do that. And now we're actually sharing information.
Just by talking to the guy I think we came up with a pretty good strategy. But he was nice enough to come and help me. You know, it's pretty cool.
Are forums a thing of the past?
So forums, I think if you make the right relationship and talk to the right people, you can get a lot of information and it can really help your learning curve. But the other thing is you could end up losing a lot of time if you're like going through thread after thread and people are saying nothing. You will lose a lot of time if you do this.
But also forums are a great research tool as well, because on forums, I mean, people are more honest because I mean, you're talking to your peers. So if you want to know what people are happy about and what people are not happy about, you should go and check some stuff and forums and you will find a lot of information.
