Hello everyone. I posted a few things before my hiatus from WP (I stay logged in in case I forget my password) and noticed that either
1. Not too many people post here anymore
Or
2. I did something wrong

Anyway......hi.

These boards aren't nearly as active or populated as they used to be. The reason for this is called the «attrition-rate» that happens with any particular community-model. Just like with businesses, unless the advertising and retention efforts are constant, the activeness eventually slows down...

^ This. T'isn't you; it's a lot less lively here, lately.

I sort of disagree, in a sense.

I would say there is much dynamism here in WP---and plenty of controversy. Plenty of smarts. And plenty of laughs.

I would say the quantity is less, but the quality is about the same.

Forums are getting less activity in general due to social media being more popular. Also this site has been having LOTS of glitches for a long time now which is also causing members to leave.

I still find WP to be quite an active Forum. And I'm not just advertising for WP.

What gets me pissed....is when the Cloudcrap thing happens.

You didn't do anything wrong. WP isn't as active as it used to be.

That's why there's less people I believe. Some folks can only take so much of that.

Hi, I took a long break too - lots of people seem to have disappeared meanwhile.

I doubt it's you, there are a lot less active participants these days.

Its number two.

You are SO darned important that all of WP revolves around you. :D

And your last post before you went on hiatus was so abominable that … you single handedly drove thousands away from WP. Youre worse than Assad, and his barrel bombs that depopulated the country of Syria! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thousands of refugees fled WP to Aspie Central!

We were gonna drag you before the Hague for war crimes. But hey....we decided to forgive you!

Just don't do it again. :lol:

You don’t stir the pot at all. You’re a good egg.

Erm, you did not do anything wrong. Your first answer was right; not many people post here any more. I've been here since 2010 and the activity here has declined drastically.

Yeah. It does seemed to have declined in the last two or three years. I guess everyone is on twitter now. Or whatever.
