This place is dead

Posted 02-08-2014 at 06:01 PM by Havoc
It's been on intensive care for a few years now, but I think it's safe to say this place is pretty much dead now. Off-topic is literally filled with 14 'forum game' threads out of the 21 threads that still qualify to be shown with the '100 day' filter on. And those haven't been posted in for over a month.

I remember when there were actual discussions going on there. Threads where we all lunged at each other's throats for having an opinion different than our own. Remember all those amazing 70 page topics about religion, sexuality, animals, weapons and the occasional MS1029 topic? I miss those days. So you people better get your act together and post some entertaining shit or I will have to do it for you.

I have to take an art appreciation course at uni for a semester because my degree is part of the School of Humanities. I ahve very low expectations.

Art appreciation classes are boring because it's always the same handful of artists and historical art pieces and more often than not they're over interpreted. It's as bad as a literature class.

There's a difference between completely picking apart a piece of art, and sitting back and appreciating it for what it is and how it came to be. FOR SOME REASON NO ONE IN A TEACHING POSITION SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND THIS



E- I'm reminded of an in-school piano class I took once, which was more like learn about old dead composers and play some pianos all willy-nilly. I would have enjoyed that so much more if we had gotten to sit back and listen to said dead composer's pieces rather than just listen about how they were all fantastic composers and all went insane/got sick and died really fucking young.

This blog took a weird twist. I'll just go back to reading the Z thread and laughing my head off.

It's dead because I'm too busy to post here. When I have time to get on here regularly again activity will pick up again.

I'm the life of the party.

I wouldn't call this place entirely dead, I check it at least once a day and am still entertained by your lot's shenanigans and witty banter.

(But I suppose I'm part of the problem by lurking instead of posting, just I don't have a lot to say)

Stupid people decided to get a life and be happy instead of posting regularly on OWF. Faggots.

Made up statistics show that for every post Havoc makes in a serious discussion, he gets ten replies.

Therefore Havoc needs to post more.

This is true. Dear god, this entire place has been resting on my shoulders this entire time.

I must get to work! Get this place active again! So much to do, so much to do!

I have the results but haven't had the chance to sit down and write up a proper post with them. They're all counted and sitting in an .xlsx document. I would post that for people if they didn't mind a bare-bones ceremony but the forum doesn't accept that file attachment.

xlsx is the worst kind of extension

Take your time and do it properly. No rush. It'd be helpful if we have some kind of rough ETA though.

I think it's all down to Oddworld not being a thing for a long time. The company went, people lost interest in the games and therefore, the forum. It's that simple. The forum is still in that area.

However, I wouldn't call this place dead. For starters we're still posting. Dead forums have literally no more members making threads with only a few guests passing by. (I assume that's how it's like anyway)

I have a feeling more people will join once New 'N' Tasty comes out and (hopefully) is a success. But personally, I love this little community in the corner of the internet. I wouldn't have it any other way

Also. I don't want another 70 page about religion, sex ect because those threads always become shite in the end anyway.

Or OANST drags them out back and shoots them off-topic.

Actually thatís happened to a lot of threads recently.

Not going to lie, I actually prefer this to the days when I had to read 30 threads a day to stay up to date.

This place is far from dead. It was worse last year.

That said it could definitely use a lot more activity.

Hobo no longer has mod powers here (?), so all you have to worry about is Nate banning your ass

Hobo has zero power and minimal influence.



But I'd still ban Havoc if he asked me to.

What's up with Hobo? He was a mod and just left the forums of boredom?

He left when he got a job that took up too much of his time. I think I've IM chatted with him once since then, so I guess it's true.

He'd be far from the first mod to leave. More like the twenty-fifth.
