    Actually, I think that's more due to Chai upgrading the forum than anything else. Happens everytime we upgrade. So I guess this time it's your fault, Brian! :mrgreen:

    But is the number really that important? I don't know. I still find the same number of active topics as before. /me shrugs. :roll:

    to me. traffic is good, but quality of posts are still most important.

    my commitment is to help others solve problems whenever possible. not spam the forums.

    Hahaha...that's definitely not the main reason. Do you know there are many other forums, including lowyat forum, their kopitiam sections doesn't increase post count, does that mean number of posts are dropping? Nah...

    And remember, it's you members that will change the way the forum will turn into. If everyone is active, it becomes active! :) And if the forum is boring, it means that the members are boring! :lol: Just kidding about the last part. :p

    Yeah, the amount of new posts is pretty much the same as before...

    i don't think so. if you see lounge nowadays, it's nothing compared to the amount of posts in Off Topic or havoc also la partially caused by me and Dashken :mrgreen: :p
    now you can see posts of the previous days in the first page......last time was totally different

    You have to remember that we splitted up the Off Topic to General Discussion and Lounge, due to saturation. True, the number of posts has dropped, but it has virtually got nothing to do with the changes I've made.

    peaz and Yupie post a lot less than they used to, could have contributed the 'slump'. The Lounge section was introduce to make this place an even better place to discuss virtually anything, except for a few exceptions mentioned in the rules. Have you seen any locked threads? :mrgreen:

    I really miss the time when there were 9000+ posts in a month. But that was tough on you admins and mods. :D

    Those times... just a few months ago but feel so long ago. :|
