I've been here since '08 (multiple accounts) and have not noticed much of a drop in quality of forum content. Yet some people say there has been. What do you think? Has this forum degraded in quality?

I genuinely don't think that the quality of the boards has lessens. Its the drop of activity that is much more damaging and only serves to highlight those bad threads even more.

I've been here since '05, I come back periodically to check up. Take it from me, this forum has dropped immensely in quality and content. I don't think I'll ever come back. I'll probably program a spam bot just to fuck with current users too.

Nah, its been about as consistent that I can remember.

The only thing that I miss are good photoshop threads. Or the rare happenings of a hijacked thread that take unexpectedly awesome turns....sigh...

Okay, maybe it has gotten a little, teeny bit worse, but hey, its consistent, its here to stay, and lets face it, we all love it anyway.

Oh yeah... the forum sucks pretty badly these days for the most part.
There's an occasional interesting thread, but for the most part, I only come here out of nostalgia.

Also if I want to post in a quality place id visit /tg/ all the time and never the ng bbs, but theres almost always around 2 or 3 fairly interesting threads around usually among the amusingly bad dung in this forum which makes it woth visiting for me.

It's always been the same, the longer you are here the easier it is to see the posting patterns that occur and when a new cycle is beginning.

The new users are either wapanese or 12-year-olds, and we get plenty of them. Some old users would be nice.

The increasing posting that Newgounds suck makes this place worse. I think the main thing is that people don't play much flash games anymore. I remember I used to play everyday...

Ugh, this topic again.
I'm sure you think this needs saying and you're trying to help, but it's more like a monthly report where people attempt to pinpoint a problem, but no action is ever taken to remedy them.

I see no point seeing this topic come and go, then be remade a few weeks or a month later.
If you think there's a problem with General, it's up to you to make the threads you like and participate, rather than watching the place rot. The users in the other NG forums know this, I don't know why General doesn't.
