Just curious since I joined this forum not too long ago. Was this forum more popular last year or before classic release? Seems at least to me, that there is a pretty low activity here sadly. I really like the look and feel of it, reminds me more of how the official forums used to be like 15 years ago.
Currently forum activity is a bit slower, unfortunately. Hoping to see some more engagement with a TBC announcement, and we still continue to make improvements to the site and add new tools all the time!
The forum does seem very slow, but I guess it's up to us as fans of WoW to really get the word out there and make it as active as we possibly can. I may be new, but I'd gladly contribute however I can so let me know!
It seems to me that not just this forums but forums in general tend to have less and less activity. It's like forums are slowly being replaced with reddit, discord and social medias. Which is unfortunate imo because lengthy, well-thought text are more rarely posted on those platforms.
Discord was the real hit. Forums have a very different discussion style from facebook or reddit so they weren't as big of an impact. But discord provides that discussion platform that makes it similar. Discord is great in how it is so fast for replying. The discussion can be excellent. However since it's effectively a chat room, it is not as good of a format for deeper and slower discussion which is what forums excel at. But forums are less popular for the same reasons. Sorta sad cause forums are fun.
