Will Tech Talk be relocating somewhere given the end of the SRK forums?

Hi. I just learned the bad news. The SRK forums closing is remarkably misguided, at least considering Tech Talk, but the person in control disagrees. I find it very disturbing to see someone dismissing the relevance of a board as a library of sorts where people can interact and seek knowledge.

The past ten years of my life would have been very different without learning about Arcade sticks, and Tech Talk was a central part of it. Today, Tech Talk is still the place where people can interact with companies (e.g., Brook ( @GOGO.Zippy , @Brook_Engineer)!) and their other customers, as well as other Arcade enthusiasts. So, is there a future elsewhere for Tech Talk?

    I hope tech talk separates from the rest of srk on an independent discord server or something. Easily the best part of SRK.

    Discord is pretty terrible for information aggregation. Getting some cheap hosting and some free forum software seems like a better idea. I don't mind donating to the cause or helping set it up.

    Top modders/hardware guys should band up and setup a discord for the rest of us that come to techtalk more than FG discussions.

    Keep it alive!

    If Discord is bad for information aggregation, it doesn't sound great. Hmmmm... :|

    Discord is good for discussion, but having a site where you can have discussion archived in a way that people can find info when they need it seems like a much better option.

    Is there a chance we can get a wikia going for information archiving? In which case having a discord would be excellent for directing people to the wiki...

    yeah, Tech Talk belongs to a forum, not a chat service

    Keeping the Forum:Thread format would be my vote. Even if's text/hyperlinks only to keep the cost minimal and community funded is always an option.

    Damnit, I just joined too, about a month back. I've been slowly consuming various threads and keeping up with "Tech Talk" and the "Show me your (stick|cabinet)" discussions. It would be good to have these continue on.

    I don't think a Reddit really suits the purpose of Tech Talk. Forums work better as an archive of information than a Reddit.

    I haven't tweeted anything worthwhile lately (really, I even post regular meal pics, lol), but on Twitter I'm @ShinMagus (for messaging)... Created a public list at https://twitter.com/ShinMagus/lists/srk-tech-talk and added you to it for organization purposes. :P

    Man that's crazy I learn how to solder and dual-modded my T5 stick due to these forums. I learned so much about PCBs and arcade parts. If it wasn't for these forums I wouldn't have the confidence to just buy a PCB like Brook and just wire it up. I am willing to donate to the relocation of these forums or some other method of keeping knowledge alive for everyone especially new hobbyist just getting into stick modding/building. Concepts like input lag as well all thought to me by these forums. Adding facts instead of it "feels" different, well now you knew why it felt different 100 percent. Knowledge should definitely have a place to strive. Especially Tech Talk.

    This is an example of how it could be structured.

    I'll be making an SRK replacement if demand is high enough. Please post here to help gauge demand:

    If anything, is there a way to archive all of techtalk?

    I rarely post here, but I've been reading and referring back to these threads for almost 10 years

    People are working on migrating the stuff from here. If that falls through I'll be starting new forums from scratch, and the old posts will be gone. =[

    Alternatively, if you use Chrome you can install an extension to save pages as MHT single pages.

    I'd suggest at least saving the stickies for newcomers, saves so many first-time questions if anybody bothers to look and read. Definitely helped me not make an ass of myself with simple questions.

    I mean, there is the internet time machine? Check that for how well archived the site is there and fill in the blanks.
