    Hey guys! I created a new kik group called: MBTI is cool
    The hashtag is: MBTIaf
    "...Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.
    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference."

    - Member activity (number of members on in a given day) has remained relatively constant
    - Posting activity has been up and down

    Generally, I think there is just more competition for people's time with Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and the like. This site has more of a community feel than those though, so it is catering to a different audience.

    I think there are some members who want a small, closed system, with a solid consensus of opinion around the things that matter to them.

    There's a lot of other members who've drifted off who I think felt a little different but the other perspective won out and they're gone. Some of them invested as much as they could and went unnoticed to the vast bulk of forum regulars so they disappeared too, I can sort of understand that too.
    Something along the lines of what Lark said. For some, it will probably be better if the constant number is always in the 100's.

    Honestly, the only thing getting my attention is TypoC and Reddit (if I am not doing other stuff online.) I don't like Facebook anymore, and Reddit is too big to have any community pull. I remember more people here than I do Reddit.

    What's up?

    Anyone else notice this?
    Yes, I have. I'm not sure why. Maybe people just got bored here and moved on to other things. I know I took a hiatus from here for a few months. Sometimes people just need a break.

    part could be it's the school year and a lot of members are students so they might be in class. I never log into the forum from school I might look at it on my phone but I hate posting from my phone so i usually just reply to shit later.
