Please feel free to add any you can come up with. :cool:

You know the forum is dead when...

you're viewing the last thirty days worth of posts and they don't fill the first page.

an oldbie pops his head in and posts just as much in one day as a spammer has posted in the last month.

Gah! You guys are moving?

Gotta go create anew account then...

you're viewing the last thirty days worth of posts and they don't fill the first page

That's the one I was thinking about... but I have another one.

When you post something on monday, and when you come back on wednesday you're still the last poster

edit : ok, I've check echonetwork, but it looks quite *dead*. You sure it's a good move? :)

It isn't necessarily bustling with activity like this place used to 2 years ago, but it's relatively alive. :o

Oh my crap. I leave for two weeks and I come back and there are SIX recent topics? I was expecting 10! At least! Shame on you. Shame on you all.

It's interesting how we once had a rule forbidding the advertising of competing forums. :p

When you don't log on for two weeks because a category four hurricane destroys your town and very little has changed in the forum. It's good to be back, and alive!

You know the forum is dead when you think it is.

When you see blood splattered around.
