Not much forums are posted these days, mostly mic., games, and religion. I think we should post more in arts, education, history, sports, and technology.

I have three comments on this:

(1) This isn't new, especially with classes resuming. We could probably seasonally adjust site activity and assume it will rebound in a few weeks--though I'd go further and say that it's part and parcel of a longer-term trend associated with a site-wide burnout.

(2) Please, for the love of God, we don't need more posts in the fcking religion forum.

(3) Add the economics forum to your list. Those other forums, other than games, just seem silly and stupid.

The Art forum should be revived soon. :)

And I agree, those forums you listed are overlooked allot, partly because people just went back to school, so they're busy. When they're on break, forum activity in all sections seem to go up.

They're terrible, but I'm trying to steer it in the right direction. See my rants in the minimum-wage thread.

I mean, the point of this thread is that several forums are lacking in content, so your same critique of the economics forum applies equally, if not more (because the econ forum at least has me), to these other areas of the site you're suggesting deserve more activity.

RI puts a lot of effort into his posts and I like reading them a lot, and he is right about the classes resuming, because that has been the limiting factor in regards to my activity on the site. You should read RI's posts if you think its all just spam.

Misc? Not really.

Education is a useless forum.

You obviously don't visit the politics forum - that has recently picked up in activity. Arts is extremely active in comparison to the past.

Nobody gives much of a sh!t about sports and tech.

Really the only forums I would really want more posts in are philosophy, politics, and society. Those should probably be the most posted in forums, in my opinion.

Reading the posts in this thread were interesting. It was like listening to blind men critique and suggest improvements to, a painting.

The reasons why the site as a whole is dying were right there in several of the comments of the posters. And I daresay even Airmax doesn't have a clue of why the site is dying or how to revive it, as he has made similar comments and has a similar mindset.

Sad, because I like this forum and think it doesn't have to die.

It's because I joined 2 months ago and proved everyone wrong . My far superior intellect, is no match, for the feeble minded, inferior folk. There like 2008, and the fact that you can't win a argument, cause it's objective. And no one exsist. I remember it like yesterday. When we all relised. If you can't win a unicorns don't exist argument. You should try letting more people vote, maybe team forums , team debates , the pros vs the cons, the Christian v atheist thread. And at the end special members vote. And you need to get rid of people like me the speak crap, and stop discussion. Like a nice little back and forth is going , then bammmmmm out of the blue I'll pop up with a ,. Did I happen to mention I once beat a cat with a stick.
