The forum is dying a slow death...
It should be pretty obvious to anybody who has been around here for at least a few years, but nobody has really addressed it. This place was slowing down a bit starting in 2012, but within the last year activity has dropped off dramatically. These days there arenít nearly as many setlists / reviews being posted and the amount of news and general discussion posts have started to dwindle as well. There are very few new users joining now (only four since the beginning of the year) and many once frequent posters are now MIA or just aren't around much these days. I myself left the forum for a while since it seemed to be going downhill, but I came back because I really did miss posting here. Iíve made a lot of friends through this website and I would be sad to see it disappear. We need to find a way to boost activity here, otherwise I fear that the forum will become a ghost town.

Seriously though. When I first joined this thread I would see many people posting all the time. There was wayyyyy more activity and what not. Ive met and hung out with some of the coolest people here and now I feel like only 10 ppl still use this site. Though I still talk to most of you on FB,some of the coolest ppl dont post here anymore (Bobby,Dayan). I miss people complaining about Californians having all the good stuff,Seeing Di'Annos wife go nuts,and making fun of Indestructible. We need to make this active again. It's gotten so bad Manky has been on Poppunksetlists.com and some Underage Korean site he found on the deep web. And we still have to have the get together one day.

A lot of the bigger and active members all use facebook but I wouldn't say the forum is dead.

Now it's more like 20 or so active people that know each other conversing for shits and giggles.

Spiner202 03-16-2014 04:16 AM

This forum is still a lot more active than the other two I'm on that are dying. Granted, I wasn't really here when this place was busier, but it still seems decently active to me.

Like most metal boards, I tend to not post a lot of news because it seems like people here have pretty different taste from me aside from a few bands. The 2014 is pretty great for keeping up with new stuff though.

I agree for the most part. This forum was always alive back when I first joined. Very rarely was there not a good discussion going on about a band I liked. You could come on here anytime of the day or night and there would be something to post about. A lot of those posters have left and there's been a new influx of members who are into different styles of metal and bands now, so I don't post as much as I used to but i'm still probably considered a regular though.

Sometimes a month or so will pass where no sets or news I care about is posted. I think this forum is still a very complete package overall. Instead of searching a bunch of different sites for updates on bands I listen to, I can still come here and get that. The same with setlists when a band I like starts a tour. This site is still a very good one stop place for metal/rock news and concerts reviews. It's cool having it all in one place on site I can trust. That's the main reason I keep coming back.

I'd like to think that at least for the past few months the lack of setlists is due to the lack of good tours going on. But it does seem less busy than usual.

When the most active recent threads are some 15 year old's favorite movies and video games, we're fucked.

I still visit every day, but yeah, not much to comment on.

ALSO, doesn't help with new / infrequent posters wanting to contribute when their opinions and/or likes are lambasted by some of the veteran members. Just sayin'.

I noticed a drop-off late 2012. People move on I guess?
