Cracked is closing its forums in a few days after 18 years, starting as forums on David Wong’s website Pointless Waste of Time and then moving to Cracked when he hired on there some years back. I’ve been an admittedly fairly quiet part of both the Cracked and SDMB communities and like both very much. For the Cracked people, it’s a very sad development- it’s been a daily part of our lives for many years. There are many, many, very funny and cool people there who would fit in well with the SDMB crowd if they choose to. The admins and mods there have kept a pretty tight lid on things over the years, too- jerkdom has been tolerated even less there than here- so almost all of the jerks have generally been banned or quit. It’s a high quality group of posters, is what I’m saying.
This may well go nowhere, but I wanted to offer a place where the Cracked forum alumni can come visit the Dope and see if it’s attractive as a new home.
