In Off-Topic I started a topic about JCVD's latest flick Universal Soldier (and the series in general), and then for Gaming Forum I made a topic on Super Street Fighter 4. I think both topics were discussion worthy and not discussed on the forum before but appropriate for our demographic, yet both topics discussion ended with in the first day, this post is made around 72 - 96 hours before the topic was created.

Results: Forum Dying
This forum is now a very small community. Trying to discuss very specific things is never going to make a busy thread here because anything that interests less than 50% of us is not interesting many people at all. A good example is myself: I have never watched the Universal Soldier movies and I don't like Street Fighter so I didn't click on either topic. I wouldn't on a busier forum either - it's just that me not posting in a thread makes more of a difference here.

We all know this place isn't as active as it once was, but the point is that the people who still come here probably won't be leaving anytime soon. Your 2 threads created 8 posts that wouldn't be here otherwise. If we all did that, it would be a lot more posts everyday. If you really want more replies though, I'd suggest more open questions.
I have never heard of Universal Soldier before... I clicked it and I didn't have any interest in it, so I moved on. I don't have a console that Super Street Fighter IV is on, so I just skipped that one.

Also, you can't just create threads that say "Hey guys, let's discuss topic X." You gotta have a point to them because I had no clue what Universal Soldier was and you didn't give me much reason to stay in that topic. :lol:
It's thinking...

A thread about an 18 year old Van Damme movie with a rating of 5.6/10 on imdb is posted on a relatively inactive forum and receives few replies. FUCKING STAGGERING.

The current members will always be getting out and moving back in, in rhythmic, strong and smooth motions that makes our hearts beats faster. Nothing unusual here.

It's dismaying to see such a thread, but ditto in agreement that it's a good idea...

And then there are people like me who pop back in after a few years. =P

This place still has posts, and I'm happy for that. Unlike GamesAreFun on the other hand. That site just dried up.

Slap a vicviper74 in front of any of those and you found me.. I have spammed that login everywhere I go lol.. sadly youtube was taken... sniff sniff..

This is my last forum I use, lol I even abandoned xbox-scene. But Dcemu? yes... you took my cherry my first message board.. So there is a always going to be a special place in my heart for you. So anyways. I think maybe the front page should be a general news page. I would come here more if it had more informative start page.. whats the term a "portal" lol
Since people seem to message me for nuthin!!! I removed my messenger link ha ha ha ha

Jesus, I was about to say "No way, this forum can never die".... until I realized this thread was started April 27, stickied in OT, and I JUST NOW noticed it.

Unfortunately, it's true, this forum is dying. We all came here with the centralized interest of the Dreamcast, and other topics were just filler in between that discussion. Since it's been a decade since the Dreamcast has died, I think we all struggle posting topics that are relative in interest to the rest of us, I know I do. Talking about cars in depth would lose 90% of the people on here in the first few words.

I've been on other forums, and even run my own, but none have the legacy DCEmu holds. It's a shame, but all good things must come to an end.

I'll try to get on IRC every now and then I guess, as long as there is at least some assemblance of activity...

Really, my whole internet life is pretty much consolidated to this forum. I have no IM, no Facebook, no whatever hell else type of social networking you people use. I never posted in a forum before this place, and this is the only place I ever frequented until Zoidberg's site popped up. In fact, the only other way you'd ever find me again would be to go to Zoidberg's site at blueguerilla.org. And if both of these sites suddenly disappeared from the internet, I suppose I would too...

The only other thing I have is my yahoo email, melancholysp, but I very rarely communicate through it.

I never really got with the social networking thing. Especially Twitter. I just don't get it.

I mean I use facebook, but that is for staying in touch with people, alienating people that barely know me and still want to add me and trying to fuck chicks. Twitter is just fucking stupid.
