Remember, one year earlier people on forums were very active! And now most of existing forums are empty. I have no idea why it happens.
Do you have the same question? Or maybe you know the answer?
What forums are still active?

ppl are to lazy to register and then too lazy to post things, they just consume what is right in fron of them. That is ofc my guess

reddit is an easier all in one platform

One benefit of platforms like supercheats is the closer community vibe, reddit is bigger but also feels like the users are disconnected from the content being discussed. Here it feels like I personally know the person I'm having a discussion with

Yeah that is the benefit of a smaller site as compared to Reddit - It's just tough I think to get everyone online and posting at the same time... Who knows when I'll be in the forums again... Not sure why I'm even here now! Smile Maybe tomorrow, maybe next year... who knows...

Forums are not dead, but they are suffering from an identity crisis right now. There was a time when forums were where all the activity happened on the web. If you wanted real time discussion, you found it on forums. If you wanted social interaction, you found it on forums. If you were seeking high quality user generated content, you found it on forums. Nowadays the proliferation of social media sites has caused a competitive dynamic that has reduced overall time spent per session on forums, but this dynamic has also created an opportunity for forums to focus on their core strengths.

Maybe because Facebook exists and there are some groups on the social media channel that talks about a different subject. It may not be that popular anymore but it is not yet dead.

Are you referring to this site in particular or any forum site in general?

I haven't really been on here lately because I too noticed that it's really died down since when I first signed up (I believe that was over 8 years ago already).

As for other forum sites, I'm a member of a few and those ones seem to still be hopping with topics and replies. It's just this site seems to of died. I don't think I've really come across any of my old buddies on here anymore either.

The issue is that back in the day before I posted here, forums were popular because they would use them as a main source of communication with online friends. Now days, there is so much social media that young people aren't using forums as much, and older members are naturally leaving as they get older. Forums cannot compete with the likes of social media, Reddit, Discord, Steam etc.

Our Admin has recently launched a Discord server. You can read more about it here. For years we have been wondering how to revive the general forums, and in the end the consensus was that we need to modernise.
