    Default OnRPG Forum Dying?

    So, the forum/community is mostly dead.
    The only section that is moderately active is The Lounge.
    And all that's really left here is a handful of oldies that have stuck around since the place was booming.
    A few new people show up from time to time but even fewer stay.

    What happened?
    Over-saturation of MMO Forums?
    Has social media(facebook, twitter, tumblr...) replaced the niche?

    I personally don't know the cause but it sucks.
    My original account was made in 08-09 and even then this place was like a very active chat room.
    Now discussions are slow. Non-general(lounge) topics such a graphics, development, general gaming, anime... are lucky to get any interest.

    I'd say even half of active members here don't play any MMOS lol.

    I still actively play PC games. Although I have shifted more to the "you get what you pay for" mindset. Meaning I avoid most free to play games and as a result most new MMOs.

    Solutions? Get more people active. If we could convert some of the lurkers to participating members it would stimulate some activity.
    If there are more active topics more people would stick around I think.

    Quite the circle, isnt it eh?

    active topics require more people, you can get more people by getting more active topics.
