    When I joined this site back in 2013 (different account) I don't remember as many dumb threads being made and trolling going on maybe I can't remember how it was 4 years ago, maybe there where dumb threads and trolling going on and I was oblivious to it all

    What's everyone's opinion?

    It's essentially the same, just different people doing different things. There were a lot of trolls in 2013 too.

    Different kind of trolls back in 2013, like the ones who used to Rick Roll people?

    There were also your fair share of incredibly mean trolls too, it's really not that much different. The Rick Roll type of trolling still exists today also.

    Everything changes. I don't think it's "crap" at all. I mainly stay for the community tbh, lots of funny and nice people on here that I have befriended. You should do the same too...

    Trolls back in 2013 were actually more entertaining than the ones now :lol:

    Trolling increases, then peaks, and then it dies down for a while. And then it begins to rise again. The trolls never leave, but they seem to have their quiet moments and their busy moments.

    Do you reckon the trolling peaking and then slowing down follows the academic year as in less trolling around summer exam season, or is there no pattern/trend?

    I don't tend to see a pattern. Trolling does occur during the exam season as the site does gain a lot of traffic during then
