Dead wrong, but a moot point now.

A. The stats are from the views and replies columns in the thread counters.

B. I meant the new member. 1 new member to post in the R&P matters more for the site than the same 15 people posting in a secret subform.

It really doesn't. Look man, this site is dying. Bar an actual miracle - or, at least some actual content - the site is gonna die. It's not about getting new people anymore; it's about persevering the site for as long as possible with the members left. Once those are gone, this place is toast.

I disagree. Granted the site is dying, I wont dispute that. But I feel that getting new members, however few, will do more than the wild west. That place I'd argue did more to alienate users than it brought them together or brought new blood in.

The wild west was started with the best of intentions, sure, but it's been a long time since it brought any value.

And having all discussions be productive and moderated will ensure that this site's remaining days will be better.
It's easy, just don't be bad person. I see no downside.
Now that the West is gone, I can unmute the site.

And the change happened one day before the one year anniversary of one of the game threads. That's unfortunate.

Yup, as long as you provide some discussion value and ain't an ass to other people.

Also isn't there an entire subforum dedicated to user reviews, or is that for video games only?

First my stall closes last week, then the place I spent most of my time whilst working at my stall closes?

Coincidence? I think NOT!

It is for anything you care to review. Marter used to do his movie reviews there before he became a proper staff member, for example.

Sure, but noone ever goes there.

Indeed, first we remove the taint of Weeb from Tealand, then we remove the taint of WW from the 'Pist.

Let's see what other taints can be removed.

Finally, the cesspool has been quarantined.
Many succumbed to it's toxicity.

I hope Bobular will keep posting somewhere. His threads were pretty interesting.
