So I've been looking at older threads and it was fun to see the evolution since MT1. Are there any plans for the future of this forum? I've noticed that the account balance is negative to pay for the servers so how are you guys managing it? I personally would like this forum to stay till all WMMT they decide to release.

Also where did 90% of the people go? It feels so deserted around here.

well it's run by the same admin as the initial d world forums, i guess if they're getting donations too it'll go towards the cost for both. i don't think it's going anywhere and im sure if there was a big problem they could use crowdfunding or something.

90% of which people, you only joined like a month ago?

You can see at the bottom of the page the number of daily users, which is around 40 something, compared to the 7000+ people registered, so the fact that I joined a month ago is not relevant to what's happening here.

I'm also fairly new here but this forum is pretty old, you can see posts from 2007. People come and go.

A lot of the people who joined since the early days of the forum are no longer active.

I believe they all moved on. I wished I could have chatted with the old timers from the SG thread....

not every single one of the 7000+ have been active in this forum at some point lmao

still though, everyone has moved on to Discord chat groups or Facebook user groups, BBCode forums like this one are pretty old fashioned stuff now

imo the forum's alive mainly bcs of wmmt and forum veterans lurking in the off-topic section.
in the future, maybe even less users will be around.

what you need to take into account is (no idea if anyone has actual statistics but)

- the amount of people that joined and never posted
- the amount of people that joined, posted, found their answer and never posted again
- spambots or users that have been banned (assume it's still counted)

the fact mt3's been out since 2007 a lot of those players that played until dx or maybe dx+

stuff like facebook is more mainstream now for this sort of thing people usually don't bother with specific sites. i mentioned this site to a friend of mine who's been playing a few years and he'd never heard of it.
