|Overview:||Nowadays, few game developers try to start forums for their game/studio. Discord, Facebook groups and Subreddits are the new buzzwords when it comes to community building. However, after trying out all these alternatives, Stray Fawn Studio decided to use a forum as its main community hub. This talk gives insight into how a forum, especially when extended with modern plugins, can still keep up with the newer options. Hear why the Stray Fawn team and other indie studios of different sizes have decided on the forum option, how to keep your forums alive and why it makes sense to include other community hubs alongside them.|
