Everyday discussion about all Obey Giant things.
It was a good run.

Probably just talking about how the site doesn't really get used anymore. This thread is the most action in weeks.

The biggest problem is the registration process is broken so no new members can join. The site needs to be totally upgraded.

I still remember when I found this place. I arrived a looong time ago and still feel like the new guy compared to some of the long time giants.

If new members can't register then that's not ideal..

The site needs a sales portal to compete.

Until somebody steps up and has the ability to completely redo this site it cannot happen. I don't think Adam will ever have the time or desire to do it. Volunteers?

I feel like most online discussion has just moved away from message boards in general. It's unfortunate because it was such a great way to archive information and important discussion vs. the transient nature of social media groups and discord chat.

Yeah every message board has gone the way of the dodo bird. Very sad. I am not on any of the socials to join private print groups but they seem like a bunch of cool kids richard measuring and kissing up to artists. No thanks

I just wish there was an active place for buy/sell/trade prints.

Pretty sure the sign up doesn’t work which means no new people are coming here anymore. Just the same people from years ago who over time just became less active. Plus, people now use things like social media and discord to do what they used this forum for.

Is it possible to add a dating section, so Shepard Fairey fans can meet and connect romantically with other like-minded individuals? It would really help increase visits and engagement with the site.
