    The Final GCT - General Chat Thread

    In order to reformat the forum, the staff decided to break up the GCT.

    The General Chat Thread started as a momentum builder when the forum was at its early days to bring in traffic. Now that we have grown to include many game discussions beyond Kancolle and many non-game related discussions, we feel that GCT has outlived its usefulness. It is the part of the forum that demands the most effort from the staff due to its fast turnover but brings in the least substantial benefit to the forum as a whole.

    To aid you with the transition, this post will serve as an index to direct some of the common types of daily banter posts found in GCT to their appropriate new homes. As always, substantial topics deserve their own threads so please navigate the homepage and post them in appropriate forums.

    For KC game related discussion/questions:

    http://himeuta.org/forumdisplay.php?34-Music-Discussion

    Thank you for being a part of GCT all this time and we appreciate your support. Hopefully this transition will be as painless as possible. To aid you with the transition, this GCT will last up to 500 pages. The usual forum rules apply. At the same time please make an attempt at posting in various parts of the forum as suggested above.

    EDIT: Some requested chatrooms for "chat" like discussions, Although Himeuta will most likely never have an "official" chatroom, there are user generated chatrooms that are associated with Himueta(NOT AFFILIATED with it). If you do feel the need to utilize one of these chatrooms the links are here:

    Kalinsre: https://discord.gg/QJvs3Za
    Leyana: https://discord.gg/0WG418Su5KGwqjJy
    Riepah: https://discord.gg/hRYGuPz
    Tomzai: https://discord.gg/rcjdHqJ


    Keep in mind that these chat rooms run by their own set of rules and NOT by forum rules, and Himeuta takes no responsibility for what happens in there, even though it may seem like many of the users in there are from the forum.

    Thank you, and



    Goodbye

    Well, I can't say I'm happy about this development.




    Ask me about "GCT Shelter"! It's just like an animal shelter, but for GCTers and with smaller cages. And more weirdos. Definitely more weirdos.

    It's understandable, a fair chunk (40~50%) of GCT where topics that could of been held in other sub forums, a good 20% was stuff the forum could do without and just general clutter. I do agree there's plenty of different places a good % of the topics can go.

    However I just hope that this is a trial thing to see if it works and it's not completely "never again" and that there is discussion of a more real-time chatroom being affiliated with the forum. GCT actually filled a niche that would be easier managed in a chatroom that's easily pruned and managed over a forum topic.
    There'll be a lot more threads created after all since you can't just megathread everything if you break the megathread.



    Two things will never happen:
    Yuzuki getting added or Kagero-class K2.

    @Kalinsre

    Wouldn't it be possible to add a warning to GCT instead, informing everyone that, due to the fast turnover, complete moderation can't be guaranteed, as it would take too much effort away from more important things, and that one enters GCT at one's own risk? I really don't think it's necessary to have moderators watching GCT closely, just responding to reports would be enough.

    Well, it had to come to an end one way or another. Now that member traffic is especially high, managing it is a huge chore to begin with.

    I enjoyed my stint on the various GCTs. I will miss it, definitely.

    Well this sucks.

    Where are we now supposed to discuss just regular life stuff such as Azuraai's harem shenanigans, my crippling alcoholism and funny ''meme'' posts for example?
    Doubt that will fit into news/politics/current events.

    But if something positive comes out of this, it's that this will surely liven up the other subforums and threads.

    Personally I don't mind, we can just hijack another thread and make it into new GCT
