Honestly, i think it's pretty slow ,and has become sort of a joke. No offense to anyone, but not much is happening, maybe in anticipation of INTL4?? Anyhow, I just thought I would make a poll to see how you, the people, feel. i'm a serial-killer :)

I agree it's been slow lately, that's pretty obvious. But I don't think it's been proportionally more boring or less entertaining than usual. It's fine. It only needs more action.

I dunno, there used to be something really cool about it. People were more tight knit, e.t.c., without being sappy or stupid, and now it's just like a playground for children to be ridiculous in.

I voted for slow and boring. People need to contribute more. They seem to do so when there is a conflict occuring that they can comment upon or have a nemesis figure to harangue.

"My 1991 brawl with a transvestite is still the classic. He was a big guy, so once I got him down, I kept decking him. Then I saw the cops and thought, 'Hmmm. Danny Partridge beating the [bleep] out of a transvestite hooker. I should probably run.' I listened to my own high-speed pursuit on the stereo of my car after beating the [bleep] out of a transvestite prostitute. That's bitchin'. "

It has been a bit slow lately, but I don't think it's boring, there's just no in-between poll option.

Why?? I was just curious to see how people were currently feeling about it. And it seems to be slower than normal, for longer than normal. I was just curious.

Yes, it has been "slow and boring." And it's been hard to develop or contribute to any great threads.

Seems like if a good topic gets going, it will go for just a few rounds -- and then some yahoos will drop in and drag it off topic, or start attacking people instead of arguing ideas, or just indulge in some awkward attempts at inane self-amusement ... then the thread just sort of grinds to a halt and dies, or gets left hanging at such in such a bizarre impasse that no one wants to try to continue it. It would be like if Socrates drank hemlock every day.

It seems like a couple years ago it was more stimulating, a lot more fun, and a lot less stupid than it is now.

Also not sure how this board plans to attract new members if people are still considered newbies (and hazed like freshman) after two and a half years.

who said the goal was to attract new members? not everyone is hazed, only the ones who try too hard. you try way too fucking hard, and you're aggravating.

Who the fuck is sprucewolf?

edit: According to INTL's nifty search option, this kid made like 3 posts back in 2003 and thats it. Then came back like 2 weeks ago.

So to answer your question, we treat you like a newbie because you are one.

I think whats happening is some of the main forummers that tied a lot of the random post together have gone missing so all we have is this random bunch of ... post?

Sort of like a buffet without any plates!

I mean where did emtilt go? What about flaming Arrow? Or Vervet? Skye? LBH? Dante?

Maybe to some (or a lot) those names dont mean a thing but I sure do consider them backbone to the INTL community - And their posting is next to none or none at all!

Dude, you only really started contributing a month ago, if that. You should expect it.
I agree that INTL's been slow. I don't post as much because my attention span isn't focused anymore and I can't do it, and because it's slow. So it's sort of a vicious cycle. No one posts because it's slow, it stays slow because no one posts.

It's because Emp is banned and salamando got banned too long so he doesn't post as much and ETH got a boyfriend and she plays with his penis instead of going to INTL and FA keeps going to jail because he molests people, and LBH and I had a rough breakup and then he stopped posting MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

IIRC this time last year was when Sandamnit said he was gonna shut down the forums again which caused the most activity I remember seeing on these boards. So it's not a great comparison.

I'd say the problem is that you lot are still too tightly knit - Makes it a little difficult for new people to intergrate in the comunity ... Plus you can be overly agresive towards Newbs (or Noobs, as the case may be) and you have a "bad reputation" - That's probably why things have slowed down.
