How many people visit this site once or twice a month, see there's been less than a post a day since their last visit, and then leave again?

How can we achieve INTL closure? Do we all have to meet up again and cover up the death of a hooker? Is there perhaps one or two male forummers who haven't slept with Melanie that just need to get it over with? If you could cash out your karma and never visit again, can you say that you wouldn't? Honestly, is anyone's life better now than it was in INTL's 2002-2004 prime? If it is, it's probably you that's keeping the spirit of INTL alive.

Why does this website still exist?

Because it can? Someone (or a few) foots the bill for the server.

I check this forum about once a month now. For a while there I didn't have a computer or was too busy with real life shit. I mainly drop in for nostalgic purposes, see who's still around and active, maybe make a post.

We're all grown up, busy, and some of us hate facebook, so as long as the forum stays up we'll keep coming back here when time allows.

I'm here a couple times a day at least because it's on my bookmarks and I click on my bookmarks when i'm bored. I don't lose anything from it because it's just time I would have spent on reddit or some other website anyway.

I'm not sure what the point of this thread is. It seems like your mad at us for continuing to exist. It's not like we're clinging to a dream; I come here for the same reason I always came here. It's a bummer that it's not as active as it used to be, but i'm not here to pretend like it is and miss the glory days. I'm here to see if anyone said anything that I can read and comment on.

Oh Dimi, I'm not mad at all. If there's anything I feel it's regret. I miss the days of posting on INTL with its former members. Now everytime I visit I feel like the pain of it's decline is only exacerbated by it's continuing presence.

I'm not thrilled by the idea of killing all connections with posters I spent years of my life collaborating with. I only want to know, how do we end this on our own terms? How do we go out with our heads held high? I don't want us to end up like the senior citizen, arriving at the same duck pond each day with our bag of crusts, having no comprehension that all the fowl flew south for winter many months ago.

I can tell there's no coming back for this once proud community. I just want to know if there's a way we can go out with a bang instead of a whimper.

Hi

A few months ago INTL was invaded by a bunch of Russian spammers who had uploaded scripts to exploit the existing PHP scripts. For a while I thought the forum was unsalvagable but after working on it for a few days I managed to salvage it, upgrade the server to the most recent release of PHP5.4, pay the bill for another year and then left it running.

If you're wondering what's going to happen to the forums, I have no idea.

Yea, I've got no problem with letting this die out slowly. It's entertaining for now, don't see any reason to stop the entertainment just because it's on a decline.

Meh, I'll keep checking in while it's still around. We all have each other on facebook and there's reddit.com/r/intl which can take its place.

One of these days I'd like to finish up that FAQ... perhaps once I have a more stable foothold on life.

I'm grateful for TPC for taking this over, and keeping this running. I don't keep in touch as much as I would like, but it's nice knowing this place still exists and that a thread like this can get at least 11 posts from some of the same old regular users.

I don't check it much, maybe once a week. I suppose if there were more things being posted then I'd come by more often, but I'm as much to blame as anybody since I never really contribute anything significant.

I share one of Brad's sentiments, mainly "I'm not thrilled by the idea of killing all connections with posters I spent years of my life collaborating with." I don't necessarily think we need to "kill" it or anything though. It doesn't really hurt anybody by staying open (as long as TPC is willing to pick up the tab for it).

I remember that whole bit. That's hardly an effective excuse for why I come and go for so long, but it was an added deterrent for some time. Also, fuck chevy.

I do appreciate this place still being around, so thanks for paying up to keep it up.

I was absent for 3 months and you fags deleted my password. I don't know why I come back here. At first it was funny to interject in the middle of the orgy of circle-jerking that went on before, now it's the same tired "oldies" who only want to talk about how self-absorbing their own life is.

That's boring. That's why people don't show up. It's not unlike writing to an on-line diary about your day and just hoping that someone has something gratifying to say about it.

Pretty much, this place is FB without all the traffic.

I don't think we need any closure. For years now, INTL has simply been that place where you go every now and then to check on some buddies you've known since forever. At this point, getting a new, big userbase would destroy it, since the only thing keeping 90% of us here is the familiar faces.

INTL isn't going to make it big now, and that's perfectly fine.
