Where has everyone gone

I joined the board back in Nov 1999 and it was great to see all the posts each day. But where has everyone gone over the years.

Re: Where has everyone gone

Quite a few have been banned.

A lot seem to have lost interest.

Just like the private boards replaced usenet fifteen to twenty years ago, social media has been killing off the private boards.

Re: Where has everyone gone

I wish we had some more stats like Bluray (like current online members) to see what our numbers are.

Just looking there now I see:

Currently Active (online) Users: 4,275 (1,284 members and 2,991 guests)

If they'd get with the times and add wikiposts, maybe people would come back.

Most went back to Usenet newsgroups. Mainly for the binary porn.

If we're not triple that, and I imagine we're well under their numbers, then holy crap was this place mismanaged.

Re: Where has everyone gone

I'm still here. This is home. I'll be here till the day I die at my desk.

There are so many places to go, only 'friends' would keep anyone here. These young chaps got your twitting on Tweeter and your Facebook. I get wrapped up in Twitter for hours sometimes.

The banned members mostly share one thing... They seem okay for a long time (years). And then they "test the waters" more and more until they get booted. So every year, one or two regulars get banned. And then they feel like they were treated wrongfully.
