Well theres a number of reasons for that. For starters, Im under the impression that a lot of people have left.
Its been running for so long, threads are repeating themselves.
The age of the users is a bit high - I reckon most active users to be between 20-35 if memory serves me, so theres no time to invest to something like an internet forum.
Like, honestly, I dont care what you people say or think, Pokemon Sword and Shield are crap.

I dont know if theres such a word as "overmoderation", but if theres is, in few sites have I found it more present than here. Its impossible to have a proper conversation criticizing or bashing something we legit dont like - cause its taken as an "unproductive conversation". I keep hearing all the "good" folk got permabanned long ago. At times, the thread itself might not be discussion-worthy, and still gets locked. Just a couple of days ago they erased the "unpopular opinions" thread for no reason whatsoever. There was no insults, discussions, or anything of the sort, just a bunch of dudes sharing a bunch of unpopular views, and yet they locked it. So unless im here to say "X" thing is awesome and I hope it does well", discussions are limited. Seriously tho, Pokemon Sword and Shield are crap.

Its not just the moderation tho, people in general get triggered very easily - and in general are very serious in this particular forum. I've said this before, but bar a few people I find the treatment people have with each other in here to be very stiff. Even in the offtopic threads.

That's a fact. Even way back when I joined it was a lot more active than it is now despite already being on decline at this point I think, as I've joined not that long ago. The main problem here I think is that new generation simply doesn't get the forum discussion format. They have social networks, messengers and other stuff. So, basically the site lives off a few old users who are still around.



 

To me it isn't that it has gotten boring, just way, way quieter, though I see why you would get that perception. However, I'd argue it has been in this state for well over 3 years.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

If we make a new one, I demand for us to hire you on as the secretary to handle all mod issues.

I see what you're saying. But these past few months, I haven't seen a lot of threads that interest me at all. There is one good longstanding thread that interests me and the convos in weekly sales threads are more headaches than actual fun discussion, except a few good replies. Or at least, that's how it feels like to me.

Agreed, only bring something to our attention if it's an 8 or higher.

I'll agree to it, but you also have to give me mod powers then. It's not fair to expect a non-mod to explain decisions that the mods are making

Pants are boring. I'm declaring VGChartz a no-pants zone! NO PANTS ALLOWED!

Pants can be fun

Oh how I could pick this post apart and give answers and opinions galore... but honestly it's a little too much effort and I feel it'd be taking us offtopic, so I'll just stick to the OP lol;

I don't really find that the site has gotten boring... some areas have definitely gotten more quiet, whereas on the flipside some areas have gotten more lively. For example my Nation thread has had quite the increase in posting recently, thanks in part to the user I'm quoting here lol. The only answer I can really give is that activity levels fluctuate throughout the year and as news comes and goes, which can lead to more or less discussions... but for the most part I'm fine with how things are, and have been, since it hasn't affected the areas of the site I visit. 

Well the parts I visit are boring and the people I interacted with are either less active or gone. Maybe the site isn't for me anymore except for looking at the latest numbers. And as I said, it feels the fun parts seem to gone and replaced with endless bickering and being angry another company except your favourite is having a good run.

I think ties are more boring

Clothing sucks



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Cool. It's good to know some people are having fun. And we can all agree ties are just the worst.

Hiku said:

So fuck the pigs and the other mod complaint is supposed to be that fun you're looking for?

I didn't say that line and I don't wanna reply to comment on it in any way. I just don't want any of this in my thread. 

Right, but you didn't say anything about it going down the gutter when he was taunting mods.

I recognize that responding to his provocations contributes to the negativity that had already started. 
So you are welcome to remake the thread if you feel like it.
