After my pussy explosion (What the BC dudes call it) at OO. I stay here and hang around SomethingAwful when I want to go to the metropolis of forums. I'd say in general it's pretty good here to cover my random breaks at work to browse around.

I can't even figure SA out. I've heard it's great, but just can't seem to make heads or tails of it. The irony of this thread would be if it drove people to other forums!  saywhat

SA is it's own thing, but I mean just the huge amount of different people there and the amount of information just in those forums is insane. I can read a thread with posts from Quantum physicists at CERN and learn about Higgs bosons, and then bounce to another forum and make the perfect omelet. Could argue the same thing as the internet but this is all condensed into 1 place instead of searching I guess.

Really what I just made no sense at all but I hope you get the idea. Since you can actively participate in the discussion and the rules of the forums generally make it so you don't get to many stupid horrible people there that it feels a bit more personal I guess, instead of just replying to someones blog or having your tweet or whatever get lost with the 200billion that person gets.

Once Pete has the Eagles to grouse about... slywink things tend to liven up.  

I'd be all over discussing/lamenting the Phillies as well (and discussing the ongoing baseball season in general) but baseball seems to generate the least amount of traffic on the forums.  The Tour de France and World Cup generate more traffic than Major League Baseball.   retard  My baseball conversations have been limited to local friends I watch the Phillies with, a professor on suicide watch (Boston fan), my wife, and our softball team (predominantly Phillies fans, and those who may not be still cheer for them for their own safety).  I just don't bother posting anything on the forums because I can't recall the last time I saw much of a baseball discussion. 

I bet if we had a sports forum....

We could discuss golf and bocce ball........ icon_biggrin

I have noticed that things have definitely slowed down around here and it sucks.  I went to QT3 for a couple days and couldn't stand the 1337 over there.  It was ridiculous.  I wish there was more discussion here in general...I get bored some days! smile

Its been this slow for a while yes.

As for Elguapo - there was two of them on OO as well, wasn't there? And yeah, don't venture out beyond the games forum and stick to those safe topics - It can be a cesspool, but its also at times a very informative place - I like it, but a few of the people there, not so much.

I double checked their profiles on both QT3 and OO, and it's indeed the same person, as he has the same location listed for himself on both profiles (Enceladus, Saturn)

i thnk it's also relevant to remember that this forum does seem to focus more on gaming than the off-topic stuff a lot of the time,and we're at a point in the year that is consistently short on new releases or major gaming news.  things usually pick up when there are new game announcements (around E3) and new games to discuss.

For kicks I just browsed through the past year or so of new member registrations.  The vast majority are people with just one post, or none at all.  A handful were active for a while but have since fizzled out.  There were 2, maybe 3 people that looked like they could be counted as actual new active members.

That doesn't seem like enough.

it looks like depward and pr0ner had a tiff, so I'm guessing he's cooling off still.  TML is probably showing solidarity with his brother.

of course I've never seen them in the same room together, so they could be just one person  icon_wink

For every one of those threads, you get ones like this from today. It mostly self policies idiocy which is refreshing in way.

To be fair, if everyone who's had a tiff with pr0ner left the board in a huff, GT would eventually just become the Ceekaybot tweet page.   Tongue
