Hi everyone!! Our baby girl, Elizabeth Christine, arrived last week! We are so in love with everything about her. I want to post a few pictures but don't want to leave them up forever here. How long

It's because forums themselves are a dying breed - with social media (facebook, instagram, snapchat, etc.) and the hustle of people's lives, they don't have time to sit down and write out forum posts anymore - or the desire to.

 

Sad times.

Go to the main board here. People are writing Novellas about the same five subjects over and over and over again.

Sports boards don't count, I retract them from my statement.

The people that were active on (non-sports) boards are older and have families and just don't have the time and/or energy to keep posting as much as they used to....and with the advent of social media like it is now, new "people" are less likely to join forums as they are Facebook pages/communities and the like.  Not hating on forums, I'm a friggin' Admin for one.....just stating the truth based on market research that DM has received.  Facts are facts.

I think what's happening, at least in part, is that niche forums are being absorbed by big platforms.

 

So you know how if you wanted to buy a TV a decade or so ago you could go to Sears, Radioshack, Best Buy, Frys, Circuit City, Target, Wal Mart, and maybe a few other outlets? Now it's really just Best Buy, Target, and Wal Mart. Soon Best Buy will probably fold as well due to Amazon.

 

So the same thing is happening to forums for special interests like the Wheel of Time. Eventually you won't have any forums for Wheel of Time but you WILL have larger communities on the few mega platforms people frequent. So places like reddit or Tumblr. They aren't forums in the way we know them but imo their communities will be bigger than DM ever was. The desire for people to talk to each other about stuff they like is not going to go away. But the places and methods by which they do it might.

You can still buy TVs at Sears. 

I don’t understand tumblr or reddit, so I’ll be sticking to my Facebook groups. Most of them are great communities once you kick out the trolls. Also, no time to sit around and play on the internet or games in general anymore. Guess I’m too old for this sh*t, lol.

UMMMM well I guess it depends on the Sears because the one closest to me has no floor models on display.

Ya most of these platforms really aren't the same as a forum but it does bind communities tighter I think. Then again a lot of forums don't perform like they used to and I wonder how much that contributes to the issue if at all.

And tumblr recently banned all porn on their site, so already that's one more site that @Jetsfan80 will never visit again.

Time's, they are a changin'.

 

And don't knock the trolls. Some of JetNation's best posters are trolls.
