    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.

    Could've sworn I saw this thread last year...
    I swear this forum was more popular this year then last.
    Last year it was a ghost town at certain times of day, the only time I remember that this was big.
    Was when GW2 came out and err one lost their shits. Other then that was pretty mellow around here.

    I think most people have out grown mmo? Not in bad way, just a lot don't have the time any more. With work/family/hobbies taking up most of the free time. MMO's need ALOT of time to actually get anywhere.
    For me it's like 'shall I spent a few minutes trying out a mmo or load up skyrim' Same goes for Onrpg, no point visting a MMO forum when you hardly play MMO's anymore
