    Let's Discuss the Site's Activity

    If you haven't noticed, T5 has been dead for the last month or so. Activity has been in the dirt, there are sometimes only a few dozen posts in any given day.

    As of making this post, there have been exactly 5 new posts made in the last 12 hours. This is in spite of us still having several hundred unique hits per day and in spite of there being 30 or 40 members still logging in each day.

    By all logic, activity should not be this low. As the site webmaster, it's my job to ask why and see if I can improve it.

    So what's going on, guys?

        Not many new threads and I mostly rp, haven't really hung out in the discussion threads because that's what discord chat is for lol. I've posted on some of the front page threads but pretty much said all I wanna say on the matters. And I guess the school season is starting and everyone is busy, but I mean I check in constantly to see if there's anything new. I could think of some new fun threads to make when I get the chance and see if anyone participates, I know I made some forum games on my section but they didn't get a lot of attention

          Politics have, somehow, become more cancerous than Vs. autism.

            We need to revive the VS section.
            Also you idiots have a discord, discords are infamous for doing this sort of stuff because it eats away at a lot of activity.

                I'm not as into games as I used to, and that was a big part of it. At this point I'm mostly here for politics (which I know I'm not well-educated on so I don't post much) and RP.

                Plus school and other projects have been taking up a lot of my time.

                  Shit we getting old. I mean this was always going to happen. People got whole lives to live. I wouldnt be surprised if cid just say fuck it and shut the site down with no warning. Clearly he is not getting any play otherwise it would have been happened.

                    I'd never shut the place down without warning. If shutting T5 down ever becomes the reality, I'd give several months warning. I'd rather it not come to that, if possible.

                    But if activity stays this low, it is a possibility.

                      The death of VS resulted in many members essentially leaving; and those VS posters who remained migrated to other subforums (Politics in particular), often -- frankly -- worsening them to the point of inducing others to become inactive or to leave.

                      Additionally and quite honestly, I daresay a significant majority of posters enjoyed the drama of MvC. The terrible security measures and absent webmaster meant two important things: that anyone who gained an Admin position essentially helped rule the site and could engage in what was often publicly entertaining moderation, causing many people pursued this directly or indirectly (usually for the wrong reasons); and that there were countless alternate accounts and guests to spark or prolong drama as well as discussions of all sorts and to provide a simulacrum of activity even when it was lacking.

                      The lack of search engine optimization and advertisement that precludes potential new members from even checking us out has exacerbated these issues; the ultimate consequence is a steadily shrinking userbase, which naturally translates to a loss of interest in discourse, and therefore a lack of posts. Hopefully this will change soon!

                      This is only the case when Discord offers a superior alternative for communication. That is inherently true when using forums that are specific to certain phenomena or target certain audiences, especially in video games. For a general discussion forum, however, people might be tempted to post on Discord for accessibility; yet longer or more meaningful conversations, superior archiving, and the like is very much associated with forums.

                      Besides, the Discord server is also dead, so this cannot the reason.

                          The question is, what do you guys think I can do to help increase activity.

                                  I could do all of that and turn guest posting back on.

                                    That would probably boost activity honestly.

                                        Well, I'll do it if there's no objections. I'll try anything once.

                                        I was pretty shocked to see it get so few replies considering how adamant people were about posting porn back on MvC.
