Having spent 5 years here on this forum, I really enjoyed it, especially when this section was bustling with activity. However, times have changed. For a start, I'm the only OT moderator left on this forum.
With the lack of activity, I think it's time to shut the chat thread down for good. It's kind of a bittersweet moment for me since I used to browse and post in these threads even before I became a moderator.
That being said, if you wish to chat with other Minecraft Forum members about Minecraft (or anything really), you can check out the official Twitch Chat for the Minecraft Forum here: https://app.twitch.tv/minecraftforum
The off-topic section will go on as per normal. I'll be hanging around and moderating OT & Mapping and Modding as well as posting in other sections of the forum.
Thank you guys for everything. It has been a fun ride and I'll see you around.
