Seems fine to me. We were never a giant message board. The smaller number of members resulted in a closer-knit community of members that has spread from here to Facebook and other places. Once people stop jacking off over "muh fave vidya gaems" and "lel gayhem fest xD" threads, it'll go back to normal.
