Hey everyone

So me and Winthof had an idea yesterday, since the forums have a weird activity time. Sometimes it's really active and then quiet for a long time, why not try making a THG subreddit?

But we need a proper name for that, most names we tried were already taken (THG, Triggerhappy, xXxTHGxXx Razz )

Are people interested to see this happening and if so, which name should we use?
Glad to hear any response Very Happy

I totally support that idea yes Bid.D

However it would be nice to try keep TriggerHappy in the name, like THG_community, TriggerHappy.com or TriggerHappyCommunity....

But yes i would like to see it happen !

I visit Triggerhappygamers.com every day, but my go to site is still Reddit. Maybe more people step by Reddit everyday = More activity.
However, I see your point of risking to divide the community, and this might result i fewer posts here. Might be worth a shot, can go both ways in my opinion.

EDIT: Btw, /r/thg is occupied by Top Hat Gentlemen

Good job in asking everyone and bringing this to the forums.  

I was asked this yesterday. We can always test the water out but we don't want to mess up what we have now for sure its worth a shot though I guess it would need to be a name that points to us here at THG! what's wrong with triggerhappygamers, THG Community, The Real THG, dam "who stole it again  Rolling Eyes "

We are just lazy here on our forums lol...
I was thinking of adding the chat box back to the front page at some point soon which may help out with some extra communication, it would still be registered users so we would still need to log in lol  Laughing

Thanks for bringing this up!  Smile

While I agree that this is a good idea, and worth at least trialing, I share the concern that it could split the community a bit.

Playing Devil's advocate, what benefits would a subreddit offer that the forums cannot?

If the main attraction is that people are more likely to check (and contribute to) the subreddit more regularly then that's all well and good, but it could have a negative effect on forum activity.

I'm interested to hear more opinions on this, and whether the subreddit could be used to actually feed into and drive forum activity (my concern is that discussion would take place only in the reddit threads, something which the forum is designed to do).

The general idea in creating a subreddit is to try out something new. I do share the concern that it may have a negative effect to the site but at the same time I believe there are a number of regs who are even lazier than us and find registering and posting here a bit of a hassle after seeing that the activity here comes and goes. Having a new and different environment perhaps reboots the activity and invites more people to join in.

I'm all for trying something new, sorry if I came across as negative!  Smile

I think it's definitely worth trying out and seeing how it goes.

Chatbox went because of resources with the old host and also i think as like the concerns pointed out here it took discussions away from the forums.
