We are working on some things behind the scenes to make sure people still have some things to talk about here & changes are coming. We have been throwing ideas around for a while & been brainstorming what's the best direction for us to go in and we may need to transition to remain relevant.

Hmm, I wouldn't be opposed to us becoming a general RPG community. That way Fable still gets to stay, but becomes its own section with everything that's been posted here fully archived within. Could be a nice little win-win while also being able to expand further. Just my 2 cents.

I like that idea. Might be neat to keep everything close or a nod to Fable in the forum's design. So we don't forget our roots. :)

We will never forget our roots but the sites main focus may have to lean towards another direction. We won't forget Fable or the fans but only so long we can cater for the old fans as the fanbase will now only decrease over time unfortunately.

We have juggled ideas & changed our minds a couple of times (hence why there haven't been any changes seen by anyone yet). We weren't sure of ways to try & keep everyone happy, I'm sure some likely won't be as we can't please everyone but we must do what is best for the site as a whole to stay alive.

Sorry for the off-topic question, but I thought I'd ask here since this seems to be where most of the activity is happening.

Me and my mate and planning on "co-oping" through Fable III, and I'd really like to try and get all the achievements in it, with Fable being one of favorite series. The one achievement that has me worried, though, is the one for collecting all the Legendary weapons, which (unless you're willing to play through the game on multiple accounts) requires you to trade with others. I imagine there aren't many people still playing Fable III, so I'm anxious to attempt to 100% the game if there's gonna be that one achievement I can't pop.

Is this feat still possible to do in 2016? Or should I just play on my non-OCD account, where I don't mind playing games I'll never fully complete?

Thanks.

There are people who stop by here to trade from time to time, @Souls McGee gives away money and weapons frequently.

Todd (Albion knight) from here is actually part of one on Facebook (could actually be that one) and decent amount of members from here were also a part of that too. Most people who post on Facebook groups dont use forums, they prefer more instant communication methods. We could promote the Facebook page but not really anyone here at moment so wouldnt really do anything for them.

11 years we have been running this site (we were 19 years old when it started) & im still here most days but I cant talk to myself :lol:. I love gaming & will talk about it with anyone who will listen (and im nearly 31 now) & im still passionate about our communities living on. Unfortunately with Lionheads closure and Fable Franchises fate still up in the air as to if we will EVER see another game, fans are in limbo and only handful left who talk about it frequently. Some prefer forums and others social media, there is normally a preference as to where they post their content & forums are seen by the social media generation as 'old' method.

Plenty of other titles to talk about in meantime on the boards to keep things active but seems most go to Reddit or social media like Facebook & Twitter these days rather than forums. I frequently post threads about games im interested in to share my thoughts with the community but most members (and some staff even) stopped coming here with Lionheads closure as they thought we would close too.

We have floated ideas around for a while as to what course of action to take but nothing has come into fruition just yet but we want the community to live on, even if it means evolving and changing some aspects. Best thing people can do to help us continue is to post & talk on the boards and get activity up.

It's still here. Just unpinned for whatever reason and very difficult to find.

Will restick for now as had a clear out of old dead/redundant pinned topics a while ago. As there was no-one really here to post pics and most of the links for pics had expired or no longer worked I had unpinned it.

Good answer. thx:)
But there is some "moments"... Why nobody still no post news on main page??
Plus - Fable Fortune will launch soon. Its 2017, but news on site from 2014, of course many people will leave:(

@Steve Powell updates the news (home) page (I dont have a login for it anymore I dont think) so that would be question for him I guess. But as far as I remember most people didnt even know we had a front news page who had been here for years and most came direct to the forums & skipped out that page entirely. News has been posted directly on the forums themselves instead as people who did view the main page never actually ever visited the forums themselves & then only went on the news page, was a vicious circle.

Those that visited the news page posted under the news articles there but forum members only posted on the forums themselves, so many questions & comments ended up unanswered on there. So those people never ventured to the forums, had unanswered questions and then never came back. We tried to encourage people instead to post on the forums themselves.
