The newest post here that isnt a link to a news post is 8 days old.
Welcome to GL 2010.
Yea that is all it is
It is not like the old days that is for sure.
I know that people read the News but it seems as though they are not that interested in the boards at least the GL boards.
I read it every day just dont post alot most of the time if its a question its already answered
I'm always reading it... but since we (the rp community) seem to keep losing our "newswritters"... seems like things don't get posted much anymore.
And used to be the only thing ever on our boards beyond the RP news was the few posts by you Lava.. and mostly Fel petty bickery... which never interested me much in the least.
I miss the Better Homes... that one of the old GL Stratics reps used to write.. those were nice...
And even Lava you used to write more...
It seems to me fewer and fewer folk read forums... let alone write on them. Shame that.
As well... I've noticed a shocking decline in population on GL of late. I've patrolled the Newcastle area from the tip of the peninsula all the way to the road from the western coast to the eastern most coast all around the mountains of wrong, regularly for the last 5 years or so... and I can say this... I've seen houses come and go... but not like this... lately there is a whole lot more going than coming.
And I know my little neck of the woods is not alone sadly.
Was looking at coming back to the game and checked the fourms to see what was going on and nothing is what I see. Think I will come back anyway, just hope there are still people left is all.
Is there anything I could do to help? Hell, I felt bad about moving the selling threads to the appropriate forum at least they were posts...
That was kind of my point. Obnoxious over moderation turned these forums into a ghost town.
That is because Stratics is held in a choke hold by the pom pom wavers.
It might help to bring the EM events and roleplay discussions here. I'm not sure that separating them to an entirely different site helps much.
The forums and the game have something in common. They both failed to reconize the fel population, and that is why so many people have left the forums, as well as the game.
It helps significantly with the D-bag factor, and we don't over moderate. snap:
i never thought of it that way but you are right on
Just turn on your general chat and you can see the pvp smack talk you want to!
The boards were full of "fel bickering" now it is done elsewhere, leaving gl stratics this ghost town =/ pretty interesting. the GL board on uopvp has had 18,000 posts in the whole one year it has been alive. Hell, i had a warning and post deleted here one time for telling someone that pvp wasn't for them yet and they needed to work on getting better and to stick with tram for a while to get some better gear. You call that moderating? Watch out for the real assholes, i was just giving someone advice...
Couldn't of said it better my self man.
