Maybe Brad should promote the forums a bit more?

Sorry I havn't been posting anything for a while.
I've been too busy studying my Japanese & preparing for my next trip to Japan.
I've been selling most of my vast collection of (mostly imported) anime, manga & video games to help fund my travel expenses.
So far, everything is all set & ready to go.
On the other hand, I've been out of work for a while & havn't seen any new movies lately.
I'll be sure to post something fun on the forum as soon as I have time to spare.
Thanks for checking on the forum & hope to talk to you all soon.
^_^

Well, you aren't under any obligation to post anything. I mean, I haven't been around here that much either lately. The thing is there's only a handful of active or semi-active users. Some new guys come along now and then but they don't usually stick around for long, at least from what I have noticed.

Or Brad could show up here once a week or so Wink

I admit that I don't write that much because I just wanna write where it makes sense (like if I can't say anything or not much about a topic like the next Star Wars movie then I'd rather pass before I write sh*t). Or I wait until I have something to say. Don't worry, though, I keep sight of this forum.

But yeah, this forum has way more users. It's a shame only a handfull writes more than a few posts.

I'm still here; I just haven't seen a lot of movies or been up to much lately - also I got bitched out a couple weeks ago for visiting sites like this on my work computer Embarassed

I have mixed feelings about how few active members there are here. It would be nice if the forum was more lively but at the same time, the conversations here tend to be more thoughtful and respectful than most places on the Internet.

Ouch. I had to unload a lot of stuff (including most of my movie collection) about a year and a half ago when I was between jobs. Hope something turns up for you!

The forum can't compete with Facebook or Twitter.

Sounds plausible.
I don't use Facebook (anymore) and Twitter but for many people this seems to be an easier and more direct way of online communication than checking a forum and it's many or very many topics. I still hope forums don't die because I just don't dig social media like twitter.

My web browser doesn't like this place. It takes ages to load a page.

Two suggestions for this; One add a Forums link to the top navbar locating the little
forum icon the left is going to lose most people due to poor location. Two
make a blog post/mention in a vlog about the forums with a link.

To be honest I don't even know what I'm even doing here in the first place, since most of the topics I'm involved in don't have anything to do with Brad or the Cinema snob Laughing Maybe it's just fun to talk with people who share some similar interests about random stuff under anonymity. So I think this place serves a bit different function than facebook and/or twitter. Although from my own internet time maybe 75% is youtube, 20% facebook, 4% porn and the last 1% everything else.

Well it's a rough estimate. In my teenage years it might have been more like 40%. Wait, why am I talking about this?

Personally I kinda forget this place exists at times, although since I got my laptop repaired. I've been trying to do what I can to regroup with all the forums I've been active on at a time.

So you'll most likely see me around from time to time here.

I try to check regularly, but I don't get the opportunity often. Until recently the browser I had on my phone didn't like to show everything on the forum, but Puffin for android is awesome. I'm also fairly new, only about a year in my tenure, but I try to post whenever I feel I can make myself relevant to the discussion. When I first started I necromanced a few threads but now I just kinda taper off to the first page.

ChaosTheory is absolutely right though about 'thoughtful and respectful' conversations on here than on the rest of the internet. As a 4chan lurker I can definitely attest to that. That's also why I kinda like the more relaxed atmosphere and pace of this forum than others I have visited.

I posted here a few years ago, but I kept losing my login info or something. Just remembered this place existed. At least with forums, posts don't all disappear when you change servers.
