We tanked back in April/May. Posting and reactions were cut in half, and active members dropped by 25%. Guess what happened back then! We got new owners, a set of seriously more restrictive rules, new software, and fucked over by the new owners.This forum seems to be waning. It's not what it used to be.
We're catching 5-10 new registrations every day, show between 50 and 80 active members every day, and anywhere from 10 - 50 new posts plus the same in new reactions every day.
The observation that big brother in the hunt has driven down participation is a very feasible explanation, followed closely by a couple of mouthy people disappearing of their own volition.
I'll even call it like it is. Without SWAGZ getting shredded on the daily and cicpup trying to run off newbz between flopping his pork sword in Kirk's cornflakes every chance he got....we're a little bit slower.
Moonz is busy getting banned on FB while running not one but two alter egos in addition to his main, and the mole is back underground for whatever reason.
Any 2 of those 4 people could directly cause our daily post count to increase by 50% but it wasn't really substantive as much as it was argumentative and confrontational. So if you miss that aspect of it all, I'll step my game up. It'll give you a really good reason to blame me for the downfall...
Otherwise, take the time to make an extra post per day.
