this used to be a normal, respectable forum but things haven't been the same since we lost our Freak Fighter

Says it all really, though I expected it to be Batty who posted that. He's obviously not even bothered responding.

At the same time, I get what TH is trying to say (and thanks for the plug on my journal, you wonderful human, you). Sadly, I don't know if us folks creating more content is going to reverse the course of things at all. I think we all know we need new blood - fresh meat - to liven things up around here. MB has become, in some ways, the same group of 10 - 15 people talkin **** about the same things.

Out of curiosity, anyone remember how many mods there were on MB around 2010? I betcha it was more than 3.
You're welcome. More people should read your writing.

At a glance, he looks busy and yet the guy never achieves the laying of one single brick; is it some metaphor about the slow pace of MB these days ?
It's because I'm always being accused (rightly) of writing walls of text, so I started off with a builder making one.

Agreed

We're all freaks here. Who wants to be normal?

I still read almost every day after 10+ years. My modding has dipped a bit since I've been so busy but the decrease in activity means that the slack gets picked up quite easily. TH's idea of having journal posts without mod approval helped with this too. The report button is useful. I don't need to be here every day...

Yet I am for the most part.

I've been sharing music a hell of a lot more than I used too. I used to just be a lounge lizard but now I like to share sh*t I find. This is the new chapter for me besides occasionally dealing with some drama sh*t on here.

I miss OH but the drama is gone honestly.

I suppose I'll be here for the long haul.

Was just a joke response based on your passive aggressive "the types of people who say this are the laziest xzy....." line

Don't take everything so serious pal

Discussions or complaints about how MB is dead have been going on practically since its beginning (if you do a search for "forum is dead", the first threads start popping up in 2005).

Maybe there is an objective way to judge if the activity has gotten lower which would dispell any doubts, but frankly it doesn't matter. As many people point out, it is what you make of it.

Maybe some people expect more immediate interaction, or more detailed interaction or more interesting debates. Those same people should then definitely try and start some interesting discussions.

My approach to the forum at the moment is actually to avoid long and drawn out debates. It requires a hell of a lot of time and I guess I'd rather be doing something else than arguing over the internet. Them days are long past. If you have a job and a life, then your forum activity is definitely not gonna be very involved.

So in that sense, MB is actually perfect for me. It's not boring because within a span of 24h, normally there are at least one or two pages of threads with new posts in it. Anything more than that and it becomes cumbersome. So for me, the size and activity level is perfect.

It will be curious to see if this forum will ever truly die, apart from the owners pulling the plug. I'm a little fascinated that in this day and age there are still new people, some of which quite young, signing up because they wanna talk about music. It's pretty amazing. Let's see how it goes. It's clear that I, much like Exo, am here for the long haul.
