    Not really. It's just the sort of website that has a lot of member turnover due to the nature of it. I get excited when I come across users who were active when I first joined. :love:

    I was convinced I was the only member left on the site, until I wandered outside of the Anime Soc threads. :moon: Now, it seems lively enough.

    Loss of some great members and stricter mods.

    Used to get a mix of interesting threads and quality trolling.

    Now mostly mundane threads tbh.

    Not dead, but the rate of user turnover (or churn rate) does seem to be increasing every year. I suppose people just use forums differently nowadays, in the past TSR was more academic so more people posted in term time. :moon:

    People come and leave much more often now. (A lot of goods users have left)

    The average age seems to be getting younger (and I'm getting older...) so a lot of threads don't appeal to me. (everything feels so dumbed down now)

    Islamophobic/right wing nutjobs means this place is a mess these days.

    For me, it changes every day. One day it could be really fast paced and a good laugh and then the next a tumble weed could pass through my notification bar
    This really. Also, I've been here for 3 years, seen many faces come and go (including my own at one point), so I'm used to things changing as time goes on.

    You joined here this year...

    I'm pretty sure the OP's "good times" were well before 2016.
