The quality of the topics posted has gone down imo, and grad school keeps me busy. Can't speak for everyone though, that's just why I don't visit as often as I used to.

They used to be pretty active. Especially groups from back then. Different times perhaps but lots of things do start when summer is over.

I thought it was becoming less active because of all the political stuff that a lot of people don't care about posting on.

Or, that could just be me.

I actually find this forum to be more active than many of the other forums I frequent, which sometimes can go for days without a single post.

I've noticed that a bit as well. I think that one of the reasons for that is because a lot of the forum topics that have been created lately aren't that interesting to a wide range of people. They've either been kind of niche threads, or ones where only certain types of people want to go on. And most of the other ones have been political or controversial in nature, and I've noticed that a lot of people have stopped posting in threads like that due to certain other people attacking them if their opinion on the subject differs from theirs.

Plus, it's the start of the new anime season, and there's usually always a drop in forum activity when a new season starts.


Yeah this. My thoughts exactly. Too many crap or uninteresting threads. But probably more so ones that offend people and cause members to argue and insult each other.
Old threads being bumped alot is also a sign of a forum being inactive as far as not many new threads or active new threads.

I don't want to read about politics or some other dramatic bullcrap, and it just happens that GD is full if that.

I've noticed that, around this time of year, there's always a drop in activity, which spikes up again in the spring. CR has become more empty in the last few years, though. Long-time members have been dropping out more and more, and there aren't all that many fresh faces that actually stick around. We've got quite a lot of users that nuke after only a handful of days on CR, if even that long.

I've lost interest in anime now that every time an anime turns out to be good, they cancel it, and start working on a new one instead.

Forums are like colleges: over time the one change noticeable is the different crowd. People move on, pursue other interests.
