Slow these days


I suppose I'm not really the one to comment on this as I was away for quite a while myself, but it just seems like things are much quieter here than they were a few years ago. Back then, this place was booming with activity. In fact, many of the hero based forums were (like here, the League of Heroes, The Superhero Costuming Forum, etc.) Now they are all strangely quite.

With the constant barrage of superhero movies in both the MCU and the DC Universe, I thought you'd see more growth. Of course everything Star Wars has blown up. The 501st is crazy with growth, and not necessarily in a good way. Why not heroes? Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place. I'm admittedly not a FB person. I like forums better. Guess I'm just old school. emoticon

Any thoughts?

Boy I wish I had an answer Bill. It's been frustrating trying to get people to post here. emoticon

I think the reason for this are the smartphones, forums are more for Desktop computers, there are lots of apps and social medias like fb that are used with smartphones. I try to keep this forum alive because its a great source of information and its helpful with the archives.

I agree that's "part of it" which is why I keep badgering the folks that code runboard to create a smartphone app. Still only part of it. I think things were slowing somewhat about a year and a half ago and then when the sdmin at the time shut down the site to new members and tried to move the whole enchilada to facebook a lot of guys just went and never checked back. Add to that I couldn't do anything to upgrade things here for nearly 8 months because I was only given moderator powers. It wasn't until I got a hold of Brin and got him to transfer ownership to me that I was able to make changes. Sadly by then most folks just didn't bother coming back. Instead they just sit there in the chaotic clusterf#$k that is facebook. It very much bums me out. emoticon

Too bad Runboard doesn't hook into Tapatalk like a lot of forums do. That way you would have desktop and mobile platform users. Either way, I find FB incredibly annoying, especially for stuff like this. Kudos to you Ed for keeping the faith.

Tapatalk would be a great help.

FB has taken over from forums and unfortunately so much info is being lost as a result. It is also destroying the community that we once had!
