Said it before, but I think that politics is the problem. Couldn't count the amount of times I've come on this site only to instantly hop onto another as soon as I see Trump/Democrat threads. Shit's exhausting and divides everyone, and when one side dominates discussions, anyone with opposing views is going to go elsewhere.

You can hide those from the Hot Topics using the filters.  I have.

That's a wrap for the year!

We're down slightly to 10732. January is going to be a difficult month, so we need to keep the threads flowing. Since it is a new decade, some "Looking back / best of" can potential keep activity interesting, as well as December sales analysis.



New consoles will bring more traffic. Specs, contents , and most importantly sales.

Agreed. It's more about sustaining the influx of new kids on the block and returning users. 

I think this year may actually be good for vgc.

Wish we had some data for the last time a new gen started. I'm sure it was much, much higher than now, but it might give us an idea of what kind of percentage jump we should be aiming for.

I am really hoping we are able to turn things around for the site. I've been writing for VGChartz for nearly a decade now and would love for it to be more sustainable where the entire team can be paid better and the forums are more active.

What was the traffic during NX-Switch revealed again, especially after January presentation?

From what I've seen, there were lot of discussions about sales potential, reaction to specs and price, 1st and 3rd party contents speculation, and etc. I'd expect the same to PS5 and XSX with console reveal, E3, and launch month.



I must say these past few times I've visited the forum it's awfully calm. I can almost hear the crickets chirp.

Hello? Anyone there?

Perhaps if there was a request form to access politics rather than just having it publically open? It's not really a forum for constructive political talk. It's mostly good as a place to blow off steam on the low intelligence racists, outrage culture MRAs, and culty fanatics that skulk around in there. But it is also a completely off-topic location that probably shouldn't be visible to regular and new users, because (while it has its uses) it is the ugly side of VGchartz.

I think the forum has its uses, but it should be a gated community. The place is shameful to show to the public, and I can see how it would alienate and drive away many.
