About the only time it was an arbitrary number was when members would " +1 " in WOYM m1 for post count, and admitting to doing it.

 

+1.

 

Just for your eveln :).

some ppl were very toxic back a few years ago thats one of the reasons why I stopped coming. But I think the major downturn is that there is no magazine.

What? The mag is gone?

 

Damn, how long have I been gone?

I don't even jump in to check the world of Tanks forum as much as I should now.  Finding the time is hard.  The girlfriend is probably fuming at me just for being at this computer at the moment, so that's another reason I don't come here very often.

My primary hook used to be the 'Show us your Rig' thread.  It just doesn't see the action anymore.

One day, I'll finish this build that has been taking up half this room since i moved in 2 years ago and help liven things up for a couple minutes.

One day.....

And I think that's a pretty accurate picture of where the forums are at. Some folks didn't even notice the mag closing, others are just moving on to different periods of their life. And as that happens, other, more involved folks head to more populated boards.

Not much to be done about it, but we'll keep hosting this place until the last Atomican leaves.

<shrug> Still have no plans to leave.  But, I didn't when I left previous favoured haunts, either - it's one of those things that 'just happens'.

Who really knows?

I'm sure that it's not just one thing but a multitude of factors as has been pointed out. For me three of the main factors in no particular order would be lack of change/modernization of the platform, reduction of mag integration/writer participation over time and the polarized user base making it difficult for new users.

These and the increase of cute cat videos on the net.

I'll be here till I draw my last shakey breath.

 

Even when it implodes, I'll be sitting on my chair next to the hole that once was At0mic, welcoming people to my beloved hole in the ground, and telling stories of how it once was a thriving metropolis.

 

 

All this talk of holes makes me think of something by TomSka, and ironically, yep, that'll be me.

Can't quite remember when I joined... but I always somehow still come back... and post in these threads...it's becoming a recurring theme to just be posting in threads about people posting :P

 

And just having the forums online is enough for me to return.

Ive only just come back to the forum a little while back. I loved this place and TBH it kinda gave me the warm fuzzies coming back after such a long hiatus. This place taught me heaps when I was just getting into the IT industry.
