Default Forum traffic lately...

Seems to be well down from even six months ago. Curious to thoughts on the reasons? There seem to be less threads started and less replies to the ones that do get started.

Cheers.

Forum traffic just comes and goes. It does seem to be down.

I came here because I was on a different forum, someone saw where I was from and invited me over. Maybe people on multiple forums could do something similar.

That was one thing I considered.

I'll probably get stepped on for saying this.


But I've noted during my short time on this forum that there is not a lot of leeway allowed for discussed.

If a thread leads to any discussion (not necessarily political, and not fighting or attacking another forum member), then it seems there are several long term members who immediately step in with comments about "didn't think the thread was about this or that", or "let's keep it on topic".

Compared to another gun oriented forum that I post on frequently, that is extremely busy, it would seem that there are a handful of frequent posters here who actively shut down free discussion.

Let's be honest for a second...the good contributors have left. People like bigtubby were left to go on for far too long. People that used to be helpful are now egotistical.

YMMV

It seems most threads turn into personal attacks and that was never why I joined. It turned me off for awhile but I still check the forum a few times a week.

Because Trump is President. Forum traffic is highest when there's looming gun control initiatives, and as for gun rights, we're at an all time high. People aren't banding together and people aren't scrambling to buy/sell.

There should be an subforum for people who want to argue, "The Octagon: Ultimate ****poasting Championship"

It should be hidden from public view, having a requirement of at least one feedback in itrader to receive posting privileges, in order to keep out trolls.

Forum traffic is down because the lack of quality people here.

I've been around since the first few months of this forum. Since we had all the NVS meets and shoots. And to be honest, there's not many people here I'd even trust enough to be around a loaded firearm anymore. It's sad, but true.

The community isn't what it used to be. And it's never going back. We've lost too many of the quality members. Just take a look at the people who've died.
