    Default Vent Killed The Electric Car:

    So I have been taking a pretty laid back hiatus from the forum lately (not vent of course) and what do I come back to find?

    Is it just me or has the forum gotten stale?

    I have a couple of theories as to how this happened:

    1) The mods got power hungry with the baning and pissed a lot of people off

    2) People now just use vent to bat around ideas at a quicker rate then it takes to post them

    3) The forum turned into a bunch of newbie threads about the same type questions. No one really just posts cool ideas anymore.



    Any other reasons for the forum disinegration? Did the forum disintegrate?



    DID VENT KILL THE ELECTRIC CAR?!

    I vote that anyone who poses an interesting topic in Vent must also make a thread of it.

    I am not pissed off. I am quite happy.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    D) It's summer, and people are enjoying the warm weather and will come back to their dark roomed internet haven when the weather gets cold again.

    I agree with UDOG's observation.

    Not true. I joined in June of last year and the forum was popping.

    Next idea?

    Gas prices are a tad bit lower this summer
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Actually, we've been repeating the same kind of topics for a while now.

    It's possible that what seemed new to you earlier has just finally gotten old.

    The thing is, we mostly repeat old topics around here, putting slightly different spins on them. New ideas do pop up occasionally, though. Too much new stuff at once, though, would require people to do a lot of research... and most of them would rather just talk about what they already know.]

    I post new ideas or odd perspectives when I'm in a creative mood, but no one seems to listen to them. For instance, I posted an idea about dividing temperament lines along NJ/NP instead of NF/NT. Many shot it down talking about how I wasn't qualified to question Keirsey and their personal experience, or mentioning how Keirsey was aligned with ancient temperament theories. The rest found it boring and ignored it.

    Athenian that doesn't make sense. Because you are deviding temperments rather than characteristics. Please explain or link further the necessity of this split.
