I don't particularly like the BBS anymore because everyone seems to be leaving, but I still come here out of habit.

I think people are just stupid. BBS just has new users, and I see nothing wrong with that.

It's dead, but the inhabitants live on

Everyone keeps saying people are leaving, but I haven't noticed anyone leave per say. Post less sure, but not leave.

It's a gradual thing. The older users usually never completely leave, but they do post less and less until they're like endangered animals and just seeing them post is a significant thing, and meanwhile new users show up and usually drift away into the breeze a week later as if they were never here in the first place.

Good point. Maybe the BBS really is dying. Not to mention all the users who don't leave, and are just really really bad.

Are you talking about users like killerbob and in some-most cases me?

Well, I think what the majority of the Newgrounds users would say has been expressed here. Really, in the greater scheme of things who gives a shit? We are probably all just wasting are lives by comin' back on here to see what others have posted. I say this though I know full well that this is probably just the first in a few posts that'll happen today.

A forum I've used for 4 years, and as pathetic as it is, it's like a second home to me.

Isn't that kinda like saying Facebook is dead because nothing comes up in your news feed in a while?

If that's the case then it's certainly looking for brains in all the wrong places.

The actual new people who DO come, get scared away by all the circle jerking. They feel left out, and thus cannot find a place to settle in.

The last part is true, but I guess anyone like me wouldn't care too much about being anonymous. I type to see myself type.

It's okay. I'm not in the circle either. Just a wandering individual on a forum filled with some sick weirdos. Kind of nice to pretend you're sane for the day.

maybe you guys should actually WELCOME the new guys, help em feel more comfortable. I remember when I was new, I had a it of a rough time and I still enjoyed it here; but the BBS has been getting really boring for me these past few days. But yesterday, I think we finally got out of the "50 users" and into like 60.

I don't really come here much any more, but shit still seems alive. It's weird though, there's a totally new userbase, it's even changed in the few months I've been inactive.

Users Online: (124) Most registered users ever online: 774

The forum will never have more than 400 people online again, and a sight of TomFulp is like seeing Jesus come from the sky. Never happens.

I agrre that the forums will never have an extremely large number of users online at any given time again, for the foreseeable future anyway but Tom is still posting quite a bit. Seeing a Sh0T-D0wN post is much, much rarer
