Quoted from Pertti Susilainen:
Will that matter tomorrow when they inevitably leave again, this time probably for good?

It looks like a cyclical graph that runs over a period of about 20 years.
So we've just reached the lowest level we had in the start of 02 and now it's about to turn upward again into a new expansion phase.
So probably over the next 7 years or so we'll see post counts rise back to around 17000 before the next recession phase begins.

If we wanted more traffic we would have to turn into a competitor against Something Awful, and since that place is basically a giant pile of angry old incels + a conservative racists, I'm not really excited about doing something like that.

What's kind of sad is SA is the best example I can think of that includes a somewhat thriving online community. It works because SA provides both community and content. BINTL has tried the front page concept several times throughout the years and it never took off because nobody had the time or skill to produce quality material with any consistency.

Other communities I can think of that have mostly failed:

HeavenGames: has some content, but is trapped in the 90s, basically autism / conservative central

Genmay: spun off from HardOCP in the late 90s / early 2000s, used to get as much traffic as SA, but is now extremely dead because everyone grew up and moved on. Didn't provide any content, just community.

Rooster Teeth: early 2000s RT was a bunch of Halo nerds beating off over RvB. Tons of great content, but their target audience changed as they slowly become a full blown animation studio. Now the old guard are either employed at RT (i.e. Barbara) or have long since moved on.

In BINTL's case... I don't know where we would find another off-beat, geeky, alt-style crowd like we had back in 2002. The INTL we know is completely gone. I don't pay the bills here because I'm hopeful about a glorious rebirth or some shit like that. BINTL exists as a window into the past that we can all look through from time to time.

Bringing a bunch of new people to INTL and hoping they rebuild what we once had would be like letting a bunch of monkeys loose in the library of Alexandria.

I agree that I don't really want a rebirth or whatever. I like the 4 people left posting.

It would be nice if we could get some oldies back, though, presumably through another round of massive data protection regulation breaches.
