Coincidentally, I just wrote yesterday in the "Topics doesn't need to stay on topic" thread that I never felt the urge or need to create an account at RPGCodex. I wrote that before Myrthos announced the end of RPGWatch website, and even now, I still don't feel like I should create an account there. I must have visited Codex like what, 5 or 6 times ???
What I'm meaning is: I don't have a plan B. Actually, besides RPGWatch and RPGCodex, I don't know any other website which does gather/aggregate news about gaming world (mainly RPG news).
Wolfgrimdark mentioned Discord. I never been into RPGWatch channel there, and I don't know if the Discord's structure of channels/subchannels would be suited for news publishing and/or long discussions, for examples. But, of course, it's a start. Better than nothing.
One of the things I do like it here is the ease of navigation (for me, at least). I also like the RPGWatch clean, simple layout. Sometimes less is more.
Only other site that shares gathers/aggregate news like RPGWatch is called N4G. They cover console and PC news though it's not RPG focused, and not that easy to comment.
