Is this site "slowing down"?

This is a discussion on Is this site "slowing down"? within the General Chit-Chat forum, part of the Off Topic Chat; I haven't been on the site in some time but it looks like it's not as active as it once ...

    Is this site "slowing down"?

    I haven't been on the site in some time but it looks like it's not as active as it once was. Back before the Big Crash and some time after it, the site was full of activity. Now whenever I drop by I see some older members posting but even the old guys don't post as much.

    Is it just me or is the site really not as active?

    Yeah, it is possible. However, this site used to be/is about more than trophies. I'm not much of a trophy hunter but I was around because of the decent community. It was a great place to discuss anything gaming related. It's a shame traffic slowed down.

    Sorry to bring this old thread back, but there are around 300 users online now. It might not seem much, but there are forums with less that are more active.

    Why the sudden traffic decrease? Are trophy guides still being written? Maybe a site redesign would help?

    Such a shame a decent community like this got inactive.

    Maybe their computers and laptops were broken, some staffs and former staffs don't care about it. You see, they stopped posting "Member of the Month", "Staff of the Month", End of the Year awards and whatever threads in Site & Member Thrown Competitions and let this site dead, they made their own mistakes for everything as their own problems, not ours. Otherwise, after they stopped posting their threads and made every member bored while this site is dead and then left this site and moved to other active site.

    The truth is, the staff allowed members of the community to step all over them and in the end, they had enough and just quit trying.

    The site isn't 'dead', but it's certainly on its last leg. If there's a future for this site, I hope we learn from our previous mistakes and not repeat them.

    You make it sound like some of the staff that "quit trying" did it because of lack of interest, ignoring how some of them left for moronic and/or personal reasons (mostly related to their egos). There are certainly some people in the staff who stopped caring because the effort wasn't worth it, but there's some others who did it because they weren't treated like gods anymore.

    Not sure who was treated as a god...I hold everyone to the same standard. If you put someone on a pedestal, they tend to think they belong there after a while.

    Me personally, I don't care about popularity on the site, I'm just doing my part as a News Team Member to keep posting about gaming related news. I'll admit its not the same as it was back in 2011, but times have changed, people who were well known have moved on, etc. The "Big Crash" most definitely played a humongous role in the state of the site that it's now in, and many (including myself) thought the site would've recovered from its state of shock and return to normal. Sadly, it only made things worst. People as well, were turned away when they felt disrespected, walked over, etc. Now this is the paid price that had and is still being paid. I'm just a News Member on here doing my best.
