Come on man, the last two topics could be summed up with this:

Either stay or go. Don't make such a big deal about it.
As an aside, in that scene there doesn't seem to be much of anyone within 100m of Denethor except Gandalf, nobody would be able to hear what is being said. They just watched some foreign wizard beat up the steward of Gondor for no reason.

It's a movie, it's not real.

Facepunch is a cool alternative in my opinion.
However I will admit the emoticon system they have is a little strange.
But yeah, lot of people daily here.

Agh, I came in to make this exact reference.

Yeah, I'll just stop going to forums if/when this place stops being a thing. I joined up because I was very ill and literally couldn't go outside so I was going nuts from boredom, but that's not the case any more and hasn't been for a good long while. I'll just go back to talking to people in real life or over games that I know, I mostly stick around because I'm stubborn.

No reason? That guy was just cruising for a bruising every time he was on screen :p. Gandalf had enough of his shit.

Oh for fucks sake, just leave! Come on. I'm all for doom and gloom, but if you're so convinced the forum is dying, then just go. What's with this Noah's Ark where you want to take 2 of every user with you?
Or, judging from another part of scripture, 7 of each user.

Well, if you want something close to the Escapist, I did suggest https://www.filesnation.com in the other thread. The problem you pointed out is that it's not entirely active. Well... If we got a bunch of people from here to go there, wouldn't that help alleviate some of the issue?
It's... Honestly, I'm not seeing anything overtly BAD about it, but at the same time, I'm not seeing anything particularly awesome about it either. Also, it just seems to have that look of being about to die like the Escapist.

I totally forgot about them. I'll give it a look-over. But I've already made this thread and I'm also worried about the horrible fanbase of GMod. So many kids, it's like I'm in fucking middle school again.

For full disclosure, GITP doesn't allow the use of animated avatars full stop.
So it's settled, we're going to Giant In the Playground!

To geek out for a minute, there aren't really any "wizards", foreign or domestic in middle-earth. It isn't a profession or the like. There are only a tiny number of them, such as Radagast the Brown, Saruman the White/Many Coloured and Gandalf the Grey/White. There are some others who don't play a significant role in LotR. They are not magical men however, they are Maiar, mystical and immortal beings of the same ilk as Sauron and the Balrog. Gandalf was one of the Istari, a Maiar put into human form so they could help Middle Earth.

It's not an accurate analogy, but it's not entirely dissimilar from in our mythology, if an Angel was sent from Heaven to walk on Earth, that's the kinda figure Gandalf is, tho as I said that's not entirely accurate. It could also be thought of as if one of the Greek pantheon walked among us, like Hercules, Apollo, etc. They have similar "domains" like Beauty, War, the Underworld, etc.

The point is, Gandalf isn't a random magic dude with a long beard and a funny hat. Tho he certainly looks like one. There are only a handful like him in the world, they are very powerful beings and would be living figures of history and legend. I imagine everyone will know who they are.

Ugh, the way these poll results are looking...

I am NOT going to Giant Bomb. You can all leave without me, I'll just head off to RPGCodex on my own.

If the prophet of doom is to be believed there aren't even 7 users left!

Much like Cameron's movie, the death throes of the site are drawn out to an unrealistic time frame [https://youtu.be/rs9w5bgtJC8?t=2h29m33s] (real time the final plunge between the water reaching the bridge and Titanic being gone was about 10 minutes while Cameron at least doubled it). This site should have died long ago but just keeps on going. I don't quite understand it given the administration's clear disinterest in it.

Cause they are too busy and disinterested to even hit the off button, obviously.

Actually i find it really funny so many users here are butthurt for not providing link for different Porn games I suggest for them to play.
I constantly tell them just google the name to find it, but no, still lazy to do them themselves it seems.
So I decided to troll them sometimes and each time I post a Porn game, I am trying to find a more creative way to make fun of this fact. Hilarious.

They also forbid the use of copyrighted material in avatars
So a Sonichu avatar is out of the question?
Honestly couldn't say, I don't know their stance on fan drawings. At worst, you would just be asked to change it.

If this site drops anchor up at shit creek ill just go to /v/.

Not really sure what to add to that. Aside from 3 major shitposting boards being just a click away.
