Occasionally while browsing old threads, I find mentions of something called the Nifty forums here, where many posters were familiar. The place seems to have been suddenly abandoned in 2008. This site has posts as far back as 2003, though many users have apparently joined around 2008, wondering if these are related. Some digging made me realize I was apparently on some kind of archive or something (I was clicked the Why Monks link on this thread). I found a link by Maj to another Nifty forum thingy on that site, which led to a newer Nifty forum...which seems to have been abandoned in 2012. While this link crawling, conspiracy theorizing, search has been fun and all, I figured it might be easier to just ask about it.

So, who's Nifty? Did the sites coexist? What'd the deal with that site and this one?

See if that answers some questions for you.

Also, the original TGDMB was on BBBoy, but their customer support sucked, so we moved to this site in a joint effort with Nifty (also a BBBoy original) in 2008.

As to why New Nifty was abandoned in 2012, I am not really sure.

Game On,

well that should be filed in with the that that should be able to be unseen...

basically, moderators on WotC, ENWorld, etc forums are assholes with special privileges to be assholes, and nepotism abounds, while the average poster has to toe the line.

thus TGD was born where polite anarchy reigns for all...or the mods are less assholes than the majority of posters and everoyne is happy with that.

how exactly does that have to do with this being the old regime of CharOps forums though?

Yeah, that sums it up pretty much. So when you moved, many old posts did as well, which explains why people joining in 2008 have posts dating as far back as 2003. But then, why isn't there a copy of the 'Why Monks?' thread and other old Nifty threads here?

And everybody lived happily ever after. Smile

i want to be able to unsee something i saw from this thread and what it referenced Cool

yeah, the trolls around here are easier to deal with than the orcs at WotC that is for damn sure. and you don't have to kiss someone's grandmothers ass like at ENWorld or whatever that stupid rule is, cause i could give a shit less who Eric Noah is, nor his grandmother....

When we moved, all old posts should have migrated with us. Here's the "Why Monks" thread on 'new' Nifty for example.

Nifty and the Den are different places, so things that were made on Nifty wouldn't be here unless somebody specifically recreated it.

Ah, so that's the origin of the "Monks transform into tigers as an unofficial class ability".

I think RA Salvatore also had a monk transform into a tiger in one of his novels.

You are correct on both accounts.

Sorry, I misunderstood. When fbmf said that you moved in 2008, I thought you meant you moved here, not from the old Nifty to the new Nifty.

I still don't get how so many users' join date is 2008, but have posts in 2003.

No, we moved here from old bb board TGD. Nifty and TGD are two different boards that happen to have once shared a lot of regulars and be hosted in approximately the same way, and they both moved hosting at the same time.

OTGD pre 2008->New TGD post 2008

Old Nifty pre 2008->New Nifty (RIP) 2008-2012

So we have posts dating back to 2003 (although a lot of them just say "User") because TGD used to be on a different board, and now it is on this one, so our accounts were all created in 2008, but imported posts from before then.
