General Discussion

These are places where you can discuss a wide variety of topics unrelated to MSPA; some of them are just for discussing whatever you'd like, and some are more specific.

1. The Chat Thread: This thread is where people go to talk about whatever! Visiting the dentist? Found a cool video on youtube? Like puppies and want to tell us about it? This thread is your thread! There's not any real structure to it; you can continue discussion others start, or you can just start with new stuff.

2. Introduce Yourself: Exactly what it sounds like. Tell us who you are!

5. Pictures You've Taken: Post photos you've taken!

6. School Discussion Thread: Talk about your school or college; what you're learning, where you're considering going, why you want to change your major to superheroism. That sort of thing.

Do you want to talk about MSPA? Suggest a command? Talk about your ridiculous theories about how the whole story is an analogy comparing different styles of playing games (chess, Sburb, billiards, cards, etc.) relate to the balance between Dionysian and Apollonian beauty? Okay, maybe not that one, but here are some of the best threads for discussion of MS Paint Adventures.

1. Recent Updates Discussion: Discuss what just happened in the comic.

2. IDE/THEORY Thread(ness): Discuss what's about to happen in the comic. This thread's name is ridiculous. But that's okay.

3. MSPA Discussion: This section of the fora is where discussion of the comic is centralized.

4. Suggestion Box: Where suggestions are chosen. This one is probably the least important on this list, though. If you really want to shape the story, be someone rememberable enough in the rest of the fora to influence the shape it takes in other ways.

5. Ask A Simple Question, Get A Simple Answer: Come here to ask questions like, "what's Dave's birthday?" or "on what page do we first see John's dad?", rather than making a new thread for them. Someone will answer them, usually simply.

6. Music Discussion: Discuss the music that appears in MSPA.

7. MSPA on Facebook: Become a fan to show all of your "real-life" friends your extremely good taste!

8. Fan Tributes: Videos made to show off awesome things from MSPA in quick succession set to excellent music.
