## Hey SteemMonsters Fans!

When SM first came out, I've put down quite a bit of crypto into the alpha decks and got myself a nice collection of gold foil cards and maxed out every regular alpha. Then life happened, got busy with the new baby and TokenBB and didn't play for a bit.

After listening to @exyle, I realized that my ALPHA and GOLD FOIL were racking up extra dark energy crystal so I decided to dust my old deck and get back at playing SM...

### WOW!

This game got so much better since the last time I played and it's taunting me to by all the current gold foil alpha on the market...it's very tempting, I won't lie. So in just 2 days I got to Bronze I and I hope I can get up there in the major league before the end of this season. 

## Splintertalk.io VS Forum.Splintertalk.io

So, I came across this question on the splintertalk forum this morning:

**[Which do you prefer: Splintertalk or the forum?](https://forum.splinterlands.io/topics/travelgirl/tokenbb-topic-which-do-you-prefer-splintertalk-1560942787155)**

My 2 cents on this is that...I LOVE both! It makes so much sense to be able to have both a blogging platform and a discussion board for the game. I mean, this is why, after 20 years of the internet, we still have blogs and forums since they both fill very different needs.

**[Splintertalk](https://www.splintertalk.io)** is great for when one wants to write a long post like I'm doing now that is commenting or talking about a specific topic in depth or trying to get the attention of the whole community by ranking at the top of the "trending" section.

**[The SM Forum](https://forum.splinterlands.io/topics/travelgirl/tokenbb-topic-which-do-you-prefer-splintertalk-1560942787155)** is a completely different animal where the last thread to have a comment on is the one making it to the top of the category. This makes from great engaging discussion that can go on for months.

## My Question to You

Which one do you prefer using? Splintertalk.io or the SM Forum?

It seems to me that conversations look better on the forum (hierarchy etc), but articles without much needed replies - splintertalk.io

Splintertalk has the look and feel of steemit so it is more familiar to use. The forum is slow (loading and responsiveness) so it is not really user friendly to me. And it does not show up nicely on mobile, which I am using most of the time to browse contents on the blockchain. 

Contents on the forum has more permanency therefore I will usually post questions on the forum as it stays visible for a longer period and hopefully gets responses from readers. Splintertalk, like steemit, contents usually just last for one day before it gets bump down to the black hole. 

So I think both serve different purpose.

To be honest this was confusing me for a while "Why do we have 2 interfaces for this  new #SPT token". But now I think it's even better. Everyone can use what suits him better. For articles better in my opinion is splintertalk, for questions or discussion forum.

I love the concept of all things decentralized.  However, what is the longevity of a steem based forum?  I keep trying to think where all the decentralized data goes.  Is the data compressed in some way or will future witnesses need quadrillion byte hard drives and unimaginable bandwidth.

right now with MIRA it's much better than it used to be. The database only keeps text...there is no audia or video on the blockchain.

Thanks for your reply.

Audio and video are stored on IPFS?  Who manages that data?  Any links with a five grade level walk through?

Thanks.

I only recently heard of SM forum after stumbling across a BB token post. I have yet to post on it so I don't want to be biased. But I feel like a forum would be better than having another blogging platform for the game, not that they cannot work together, I'm sure we will combine them in various ways. A steemian always does, don't they?

I like the forum better because it is more suitable for dialogue. The nitrous instance of Splintertalk.io is also cool but more for proper posts. Actually, this topic might have been better in the forum, for a long-term conversation. This post here will be quickly hidden in our feed and difficult to be find. In the forum it will be relatively easy.

Splintertalk.io  is much better IMO. It's basically just Steemit+ and I already love Steemit.

I like both, but am pretty excited about the forum... even though it's not really something I'm used to.

I like that it doesn't feel like I have to have whole formatted post (but I still can) and I can get rewarded for my interactions.
