View Full Version : Community dying?

09-14-2003, 07:06 PM
I've noticed a steady decline in both posts in the forums and on the actual sites of the two places I regularly visit in the lfnetwork (mojo and AD) There's only so much you can blame on server problems. Is the community dying?

I think you can blame a lot on server problems, actually. Half the times I've tried to come here, the server's either down or too slow to bother with. Mojo being down doesn't help, either...

The Mojo boards have never been really busy, actually, but at least the news items on Mojo provided something to talk about. Even then, activity comes in fits and starts... plus it's still summer, and that never helps. It'll probably pick up in a bit. Maybe.

Well I remember when it was a lot busier than this. Maybe things will pick up in Winter when everybody else is suitably depressed. Probably not. It can't be just a case of people having better things to do ;)

You can blame it on people not getting involved too. Huz needs to come back on irc, we miss you Huz and we're running out of things about you to bitch about.

Come back huz, so I can eat your brains. The #fishyfishyfishyfishy misses you ;)
You can blame it on people not getting involved too I can blame it on the sunshine, the moonlight, the goodtimes, but I'll probably blame it on the boogie.

Also people are now officially back at school/college/place of education so they don't have the time to be here much anymore.

Well that wouldn't explain it, schools only just having gone back. Plus when I was at school it didn't stop me posting.

I think that more trolls are necessary. Trolling is a necessary element to any successful posting board - constantly challenging everyones beliefs and opinions in a condescending manner is a great way to rack up the post count for a forum. Because all that the people of the internet really want is to hate each other.

Actually, who cares if this forum is lazy. When an interesting topic does crop up, people who have better things to do than post in threads like this one will usually hit reply. Generally, things get posted when they are relevant and interesting in some way - which is a good thing. Right now, nothing's happening except a bunch of people pimping auctions.

Oh, and Scumm Bar Quiz #45 (http://www.scummbar.com/community/games/quiz/index.php?quiz=quiz25.php) of course!

9/10!!1 I am proud.

7/10. Bah.

Also, JFK was shot by a second gunman? Is that a concrete FACT, man?

The guy who said it's the lack of news I think has the answer.

Back in the day (like, 6 months ago) there would be new LEC related news every day or so, and it gave a good springboard to start a new thread and chat about it.

Since the temporary Mixnmojo site went up only scant few news stories have been posted. One every 2 or 3 weeks if we're lucky.

This I think has had a spinoff effect that posting has dropped off as less new threads are being created.

7/10 :(

Me too... coincidence? I think not.

Now that the Scumm Bar (http://www.scummbar.com/) is back, there tends to be something to talk about often enough. In the last few weeks there's been a whole load of new fan art, some fan music, wallpapers videos and a new quiz.

I still come here. I dont know if you guys care though.

9/10 Buggery hell! It was going so well up until that last question.

But yeah, with more news, there was more to talk about, thus more active members and so on.
