Default The death of forums!

Was wondering why forums, which have been very active, die?

If you take this forum.... which states it has over 135 thousand members but struggles to gain 75-100 posts a day....and at times much less than that....why would that become?

I wasn't part of this forum when the ban hammer went down, but what happened is in the past so this forum should be very active with so very many members.... so why now is this forum in it's death throws?

It happens to many forums ( not just of an alternative nature ) ....but why?

I asked a member who had started a thread, who had not posted for nearly two years, why they had not interacted?
They showed as online but didn't answer?
So I removed my 'question' as it was 'off' topic within their thread.

Is this the 'now' nature of interaction.......especially alternative considerations, but then why?

This forum has near 6 million posts and 300 thousand threads....A wealth of potential information and discussion....But it is near death!

Why do you consider that to be....and how could we turn it around? And would you want to??

I think its because people join for whatever reason, get all the relevant info, then move on as often its just thread after thread of the same arguments or questions from new members that can usually be found in the 'stickys' anyway.

So are you stating that there are only a limited number of questions?

That within this experience of a 'life', one can have only a predefined number of considerations which ask the self to define 'actions'....and all of these have already been answered within the stickies....so no point then in any continuation of investigation!

Most of the 135K members are inactive.
They have just not been defined as such!

Of the 'active' members....most are 'bots' or 'socks'!
But they are left here (or created) so as to create a drama!

There are less than 100 actual 'posters'.......any above this are puppet accounts!

lmfao

I get exhausted having to take time to write a reasonable reply which might include having to find sources for the points i want to make.

I have more free time by not getting intensely involved with posters who have a radically different pov. I still like skimming through some threads just to see what is being said.

Topics which mostly interest me: like ww2/hitler/holocaust/white replacement strategy/ a group that i cant mention by name having undue influence in key areas like academia, media, politics, have been done to death here at least for me.

New members may be new to such information and will like to work things out for themselves by posting and engaging. But i am getting on in years and want to avoid aggravation if at all possible.

A bunch of those are fake accounts. CCb14o43, ccb26...

It's most likely somehow automated and if you look at Who's online page you can immediately notice the fake user names. They're either 'Registering' or viewing the 'Forum Index' and all of them are with 0 posts.

Yes, pretty much, on any given subject.

I think many more are awake now.
Maybe they're just waiting for a leader?

thank you

So do you consider that is the reason for most of the 135K members?

That they have 'found' that which they wanted....and now 'pop' in once in a while?

I know....I 'looked' at them all!

But why?

If this was my forum I would delete those accounts as soon as I saw them.

Just asking why they still exist as members?

Tinfoil, sorry but I disagree with you.

I do not see an 'awakening' of the 'mass' and if they require a 'leader'.......then they are most definitely stuffed!

It might be a sign of Internet use changes!

We are going through, always going through, a stage.

As those needs change then so do requirements!

People know how to use the Internet better than they did ten years ago to get their points across, and most of those users were/are of the older generation of computer users, and not the new next gen that are here today.

It's a sign of the times.

I stay because it keeps me sane!

It is interesting....Why do forums die?

If you take the thread which I just experimented with you find that it has 1655 posts of which 1 member posted 625?

Why?

The next was 165....then 117.......then it was me!

I posted 96 times....but I had a purpose so most of mine are very recent. Such is.

Try to consider it lol

I agree, if they need a leader they've kind of missed the point, but still, that is what they will do, in general I think.
More people than ever today are aware of the Rothschilds and the dodgy banking system imo.
Which is a start.

I don't know how the admins deal with those accounts, but as I said it's definitely somehow automated. (almost like a spam bot)

My guess is that admins do indeed keep track of them and remove then as soon as possible?

Some threads I don't generally post in due to lack of any real knowledge on the subject (like spirituality and astrology)and those on it seem to have all argument bases covered, much like the Moon Hoax thread.
But I still read it to try and learn something new.

Bit like question time on the telly, where there is an audience but only the front rows generally get to speak.

I was only explaining why I am not active as I was once was. No idea about others' reasons.
