    We get a lot of lurkers but too toxic for people to actually post. Really out of the way from the main site though. Navigating from one to the other is just a pain, much more complicated than it should be tbh.

    I agree. Just sort of depressing looking through some of the older topics and seeing a lot of people who no longer post here... and as much as I love you guys here, I'm losing a bit of interest myself. Its just slow as shit. Figure some fresh faces might reinvigorate things.

    I also noticed the Community button on the front page doesn't work in Safari on my iPhone so there is that too.

    We'd probably get more participation if we talked news on the forum. Most of our threads are about censorship or adjacent topics.

    The radical anti-censorship circlejerk is a bit much for a lot of people too.

    Or we could open threads and link to stories on the main site. We already know we have a lot of lurkers and 0 post accounts from the site proper who are more likely to participate if we do.

    I've said this back when the forum opened and I'll say it again, there needs to be a dedicated button for the forum in the NG main page, if they do that we would probably see an increase in members. Right now the forum link is under the "Community" tab in the main page and to me thats not enough for such a big feature.

    I think I know what happened to all the OGs who disappeared. They got aneurysms from your horrible grammar. RIP.
    It's normal for ~90% of the userbase for a forum like this to be lurkers, but at this point most of the new blood we're attracting is from our back and forth civil conversations with NISA; not exactly fans of the site. Pretty backwards that most of our visibility is outside of the site's regular readers.

    RIP, old friend. Well I don't suppose we will slowly move to the adult version since it allows for porn.
