ikr XD
well it's kinda once it starts to feel quieter, the vaguely active people become a lot less active.
from my experience it only takes a few people to make a forum buzz.
plus i think generally people arent so inclined to visit forums these days, its all about discord and reddit etc :P
but the opposite is equally true, a few active people can inspire people to be more active themselves.
I would love it to be super active again :)

I agree with suuper-san. While, it does feel lonely I don't mind talking to the few people on here. When there's too many people/activity I get social anxiety. So far, this forum is good for me and I won't be leaving anytime soon.
Pink moon's gonna get you all.

I see, I hadn't thought of it like that :)
And when there's less people you sort of get to know everyone which is nice :)

I always say I wish the forum was more active like 2015/16 but then I don't do anything to help that. I just keep to my own corner mostly and post about music. I visit the forum everyday and see what's up though. I still love message boards more than anything else like what suuper mentioned, Reddit and all that. So I haven't given up on the forum or nothing.

I think that's partly the problem is that we have quite diverse interests being writers, artists, musicians and so on, so we don't always interact out of our sector very much haha

I wonder if changing the forum look/skin would affect how people see the site, like making it look sleek or modern, or something. I don't know what attracts people these days so I have no idea :P

It's as Suuper says. People seem a lot more inclined to use the monolithic social media sites these days then visit an actual forum. But we keep floating along the same as ever (plus to be fair, not all activity back in the day was good activity. We basically don't see Forum Drama TM anymore.)

Merry Christmas guys! :)
No one is perfect . . . that's why there's erasers and extra paper.

I'm reinstalling my OS today, been putting it off for several years because of the hassle.
if you don't hear from me later today then I'm probably pulling my hair out trying to figure out what went wrong XD
gotta make a list of all my programs and backup everything twice. cya.

EDIT:
well so far it's a real pain.
my PC must know its time has come because I'm getting all sorts of disk errors and program errors and I haven't even started doing anything yet.

EDIT2:
I've literally not even started anything yet other than backing up data and after a restart my PC wont even start up now. it's doing it deliberately I just know it. I set up a backup PC because I also knew this would happen. So at least I can complain, i mean, Google solutions.

Edit3:
ok so at least I can start up my PC again. looks like one of my external drives decided to temporarily (i hope) kick the bucket.

edit4:
I think I underestimated the time taken to backup all my documents. my art folder alone is 45GB lol
my backup drive isnt exactly fast, and my other faster preferred drive is as of an hour ago busted because I dont know why.
I'm going to buy a new one anyway so this is convenient, but not for today.
this is a dark day indeed :/

edit5
and whats worse is I cant do anything like sorting out files or anything while I want for it to backup , because they're the files that are getting copied.

6:
close to getting it all going now. so nervous - one, that it installs well, and two, that I backed up all my data correctly.

7:super super close now

8:fell asleep lol. actually super close this time XD

9:well I'm stuffed....it worked but now literally nothing else does. hmmmmm. starting to wonder if I was better off with what I had originally. But I'll try to not be defeated :/
yeah nothing works now and I have no idea what to do. guess I'll be googling tomorrow as well T_T
