Hello folks. I've been a member since 2008 of this forum and I've noticed a disappointing change in the vibe of the forum lately. I found this thread Where did everybody go that seems to describe the problem. It looks very meaningful. Where we used to have big discussions, instead of that now, I notice many small discussion with very few replies and views. Generally, my impressions are the following. Not long ago, a new CMS was installed to replaced vBulletin. I believe that hurt the traffic and the participation. Here's one theory. I've been following all forums to get all the updates. The old system used to send me an email every day for each forum. In the email, I could find the new threads and the updated threads. Sometimes, even if I didn't following a thread, I joined a discussion because I could see the updated thread. I was probably not alone and the just fact of mentioning new or updated content brings traffic. It's certain that at some degree, that old system generated more traffic and participation than the new one. Another issue might be around the interests of indie developers. The indie gaming scene has changed a lot during the last years. Like said in the thread above, there are a lot of newbies (probably more in percentage because of the evolution of the market) and that's OK. We have to question the members about their interests. I used to enjoy this forum and the big discussion about piracy, marketing, development, etc. I don't feel that these discussions are happening anymore. I found valuable advice about being an indie and overcoming the problems. It used to be a good online place for the indies, but it doesn't appear like that anymore. That made me think about my participation on the forum. Do you share my point of view and if yes, what do you think could be done to relaunch it and make it indie again?
