If I had known it was more of a problem before, I would've started posting more.

Then you should rush to your death
just kidding but try it at least few hours before judging it

I used it for years. Then I downloaded team speak and never looked back.

you can turn them into your "kitsune and kawaii threads". c:

I guess since you're just so eager to piss off your mobile-heavy userbase that I should let you know that 75% of my posts were prompted by something that happened on the slack. Since that motivation is gone you probably won't see me around very much anymore.

The site works fine on mobile, albeit it is in the process of being made more mobile friendly.

The Slack is still a thing at the moment, it's just that instead of there being a horde of channels discussing topics that:
A: could benefit the community if they were discussed on the forum.
B: get lost after a few days because Slack has a shitty business model that hides all posts but the last 10k
C: leave the forum dead, so no new members register; making old members leave and thus killing the community.

Every change I make is to benefit the community. I don't make a cent from running Lewd, nor will I ever do; I do this stuff because I care about the community and I can see that it needed to be done.

I understand that you're mad about it, and you have every right to be; but calling me out, saying that I'm eager to piss off mobile users is ridiculous.

a: Nebulous benefit, the community is fine, it's your website that isn't doing so well.
b: There are already programs similar to slack available that have less shitty business models.
c: You make a few assumptions here. 1: You assume users will not invite friends. 2: You assume people will completely ignore 'come chat with us on slack' at the top of every page.

What's ridiculous is that you continue to conflate 'the community' with 'the website, lewd.sx', in order to emotionally manipulate others into rolling over and accepting a substandard option. Despite it's problems, Slack is clearly superior to the lewd.sx forum in getting users engaged with the community.

Also:

""Slack has been stripped of all channels that could have a place on the forum, simply because Slack has leeched our activity considerably:""

You can't have it both ways, either chat/forum services are not comparable or they are.
If they are not comparable your statement above is fallacious, and if they are then clearly using Slack was superior to using lewd.sx

My whole problem with this is as follows:
I am on mobile a lot, chat is much easier on mobile than forums will ever be, regardless of design.
Poor planning capacity when making changes; this change should have been made at most 24 hours before completion of lewd.io, adding to a history of relatively poor planning (not that said history is big)
The less said about your motivation for doing this the better (as it definitely appears selfish at best)
