RIP

Only active topic board left on a regular basis is the mutual admiration society on the national topic board!

I just wish there was a rational reason for it.

What's odd is that none of the metrics have changed except post count. Sessions, visitors, pageviews are all pretty normal, it's just that the number of posts is down. Same with... "That Other Board," if you notice.

Not exactly a whole lot going on these days. I'd expect it to pick back up as the season draws closer. Increasingly though the major topics of discussion are of national consequence and therefore the boards that cater towards that topic is where they are discussed. I have no doubt however that soon these pages will once again be filled with Servite and Mater Dei guys arguing about games 30 years ago and I'll know that the season has finally begun in earnest.

Would post more if I was more interested in the inner workings of Trinity league football lol. Sadly I would rather not post on something I know little about. Can't wait until basketball and baseball starts!

Hmm let me see 8/23 MD vs Centennial already being advertised on TV, then let the poop hit the fan and everyone will argue whose transfers were more important. It will all start again. Just so you know the fishing channels are just as dead. The fish are just not on the chew....yet.

If the board is dead compared to the way it once was at this time of year, it's because so many of the characters that made this place hilarious and informative aren't interested anymore. Pretty simple.

It's summer and like King George wrote in his daily log on July 4th 1776:
"Nothing of interest happened today"

People felt burned by an overzealous moderator who would come down on far too many people for fairly inconsequential items far too often.

Now add a feeling of selective execution of warnings, time outs and getting banned based on whether or not your views are in alignment with the preferred side or runs slightly outside of some overly restrictive and quite frankly silly rule.

Of course he’ll deny it by pointing to some twisted statistics while missing the obvious sentiment that’s existed around here for a while.

And I’m just passing on what other people have said plus what I’ve seen. So let’s keep burying our head in the sand and think this is all false while the board continues its free fall into the dumpster fire it’s become. Sorry if the truth is harsh.

BTW, it is not because of a dead period lol. Year over year activity is way down. Key contributors gone. Will be a long time before it comes back if it even ever does....

Oh please. The "overzealous moderator" usually just looks at this side of the board about once a week. If that. I thought that was pretty obvious to most people. You know, the 99% who know how to behave in a public place and have never had a warning?

You agree to follow The Rules when you register. Keep your word and you'll never hear from me.
