    You are probably looking at X-Wing First Edition.
    The X-Wing 2nd Edition Forum is here: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/252328/star-wars-x-wing-second-edition/forums/0.
    That said, you are correct, there is relatively little posting/discussion about X-Wing on BGG compared to here. But there is no reason there can’t be more there. BGG is extremely active with lively discussions about many games going on at any time. I believe it’s the best place to go for news, strategy and community for many games. It’s just that X-Wing 2.0 specifically has never really caught on there.
    As you can tell I’m on the BGG train because I play a lot of different games and find the site very useful/fun. But I do believe it has everything we need and more for fostering and online community and discussions:, categorized, likes, private messaging, buddy system, subscriptions, image and video sharing and embedding, file sharing, etc.

    BTW, on BGG avatars are bought with ‘geek gold’ (earned through community contributions, tips, site support etc).
    I’m happy to support anybody who is moving over who doesn’t already have an avatar or the gold by sending them enough for an avatar. Just pop a hello in this thread and I’ll tip it to you: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2564345/ffg-forums-be-shut-down-12021 (or send me a private message over there if you prefer).

    Just to say, starting to try and get things going on BGG.  I started to update the wiki to try and recreate @MidWestScrub's useful links page.  Spent about an hour on it last night but when I hit submit I got an 'invalid content' error and my account was locked.  Turns out I triggered some spam rule.
    However, support had helped me get my update back and restored my account within 24 hours.  On Christmas Day.
    Impressed.

    Hi, mostly a lurker here but I’ve enjoyed this community for several years. 
    With this forum going down, does BoardGameGeek make sense as a place to migrate to? There is a dedicated X-Wing 2.0 forum there divided up into rules/variants/news/etc. sub forums: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/252328/star-wars-x-wing-second-edition/forums/0. I think the site also supports adding a wiki page coupled to a game, which could hold ‘important links’ type information.

    Sorry if the answer is obvious. I have never really explored Reddit and discord, maybe I should, but from my little exposure they don’t seem appealing. And I do know I don’t like Facebook as an alternative forum location. So just thought I’d plug BGG since I’m familiar with that one and haven’t heard it brought up much.

    I like the BoardGameGeek idea as well.
    More reviews will also help bump up its rankings there, which matter a lot in the eyes of some.

    For what it is worth, I have messaged AMG. Basically I just asked two things:
    1. I asked that if they could communicate anything with us. Presumably, taking over three games lines is hectic, and they may have some NDAs or need to keep some things confidential. But I simply asked that they communicate anything really, even as small as letting us now when the expect to start making announcements.
    2. I asked for them to consider a forum as a way to foster community.
    I have no expectations, good or bad, on how they will respond, but I figured that it would not hurt to ask. 
    What I can see from AMG is that they do communicate fairly regularly via facebook, twitter, and on their own page which will be nice once they start communicating about our product line.

    FWIW, another thing I like about BGG is the image galleries and the fact that they host images (personal gallery per user and categorized galleries per game). It means most images shared in threads don’t require a separate site be working and they continue to be visible/working when visited much later. It also means there is a way to browse/view shared images which is sometimes nice.

    I’ve been on BGG so long I forgot you have to ‘buy’ your avatar there with ‘geek gold’ (earned through contributions, tips, site support, and other means). I should be able to fund avatars for quite a few FFG refugees though. If anyone is interested just drop a note to say hi (or whatever) in this thread: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2564345/ffg-forums-be-shut-down-12021. I’ll keep any eye out for folks without avatars and tip you some gold for one (well, until I run out).

    Images themselves can be assigned a ‘Gallery’ (Game/People/Creative) as well as a ‘category’ (Components/Customized/Play/etc.). I’d suspect that repaints would go in Creative/Customized and that would be an easy way to find such pictures. And as noted above, the pictures themselves can have comments/discussion on them.
    That said, yeah, there doesn’t seem to be  great forum category for repaints which is unfortunate. I agree that ‘variants’ could work though I think that is meant for rules variants generally. I guess that means putting them in general but really would be nice to have their own category. Maybe a ‘Customization’ category. I can ask is that can be added.
    There is also not really a good category for Squad Lists or Squad Builder discussion, outside of being lumped in to general. 
     
    Are these show stoppers? Again, I’m not really familiar with what reddit and discord may offer in this regard but I’ve found BGG great for game discussions and sharing over the years.
