    Its like this everywhere. I'm on other forums too and its just as dead there compared to this forum. Somehow I blame smart phones, because its not like you're going to take the actual time on it to 'chill' and be seriously on a forum. From what I experience, its something you do at home on your laptop or on PC. A lot of things are dying because of smart phones if you ask me. Even when you're in the train. It used to be fun when someone attractive took place in front of you, doing some sort of staring game. Trying to lurk, but avoid that persons eyes. You get what I mean. Even during serious matters, kids just look at their phone like zombies and whatsapp all day err day. I'm NOT saying everybody is like that, but I think that group is growing rapidly and that it worries me. People don't create PC time anymore. Most people are even on laptop now I think.

    My neighbours don't even have laptops. They just have smartphones, and my next-door neighbour even told me he only has it to use Facebook and to prank people.

    It's not just affecting general Internet usage in a computer-sense, but affecting other things such as console and PC video game sales, and even other non-computer things. Everyone I see out in this town is either walking somewhere, or walking somewhere whilst looking at their phone for Twitter, or sat using Twitter. At least five people on any bus at any time will be checking Facebook for status updates. I'm little better; I browse last.fm on my phone on the bus, but my phone's a damn phone. I browse last.fm just to find dubstep in the 20-minutes I've got nothing better to do.

    Society is collapsing due to this increasing trend of apps and social networking. I have a long-standing, possibly relevant quote; "Social networking ruined my social life."

    This is SO true. When you're hanging out with friends, they're on their phones. When you're in class, people are on their phones. When you take the bus or train, people are constantly on their phones. They've prioritized social networks instead of actually hanging out and talking, listening, etc. Hell, even my 13 year old little sister has been on the computer more than me lately...AND I'M IN A COMPUTER PROGRAM. It's not just our generation, but the upcoming generation as well. These things are taking over!

    The forums have been 'dying' for quite awhile now, I doubt it will completely die altogether any time soon. We have a fairly constant rate of new arrivals which keep us going.

    Oh. It won't ever completely die. Ha. Im certain. It just needs some sort of revamp. Nothing wrong with change.

    Funny thing is, I am pretty sure that a lot of oldies didn't like the change back when AF updated from vBulletin 3.6 to 4.0 That's really retarded why they wouldnt want a massive upgrade like that but it's true.

    At least from what I heard from some people.

    Back in 2010, I was always wondering why AF and NF were staying behind, NF was because of the forum mods it had installed, pretty sure AF was for the same reason considering we lost some of the old features.

    That's strange. I'm sure you're right, even though change is a good thing. The only feature I miss is that admire system we had. Remember that? Pretty cool feature.

    Not at all. Mods need to be updated to work in future versions of vBulletin, I guess a lot of those weren't updated.

    And yes, that was a cool one.

    It's definitely not the same wonderful website it was ten years ago. It's completely oppressive now.

    We've literally been hearing this for 10 years. That's an awful long time to decline and still be going strong! Although there is some truth to it: When the original founders and staff like Ace, Minako and myself started out here, we were 17, 18, 19, 20 years old and had the free time to work on the site and interact with members 6 to 12 hours a day and that obviously doesn't happen any more. Now the staff is upper 20's and lower 30's in age and busy with jobs and families. Ever since I took a couple years off the site for school I've been completely out of the loop myself.

    This website exists as a labor of love by Kaitou Ace as it's not going anywhere as long as the revenue is there to keep the server running. Obviously it would be better if we had more new members coming in and participating, but a Forum is what the community makes it. New banners? Make them. Pretty much all the ones up there now were made for contests in the art section. But that's not going to address any real problem. We're receptive to suggestions but "revamp!" isn't really a plan or even a suggestion. The forums are up to date, short of changing over to a completely different system.

    Good ideas are always welcome but there's really no need for alarm bells either.

    To me AF has been on a decline since 2008/2009, but I have to agree, lately it has gotten worse.

    I speculate that the common perception of decline has to do with the high churn on this forum. If you stick around for years (or heck even months) you get to see most of the people you enjoyed interacting with leave, at which point it would be natural to get a feeling of decline.

    But I think the forum will last as long as the newbies keep coming in. And most of the old members come back eventually, for a little while, before vanishing again.

    I don't think any of my AF friends come here any more. That is why I don't come here much anymore.

    I said boring, not inactive. If that was directed at me anyway.

    NaurtoForums is getting meh and ArlongPark and SaiyanIsland are okay.

    Yeah same here, which worries me. 2 new post in three hours is pretty bad, but Ive been trying my best with the anime section.

    Not all. The 360a site is amazing.

    How is that the 'sad -ignorant- truth?'

    I've been here since AFs inception. I can assure you, nobody cares. The forum has sucked for years.

    If nobody cared then they wouldn't be posting suggestions in this thread nor would they anyone post in this thread at all. If you don't care, move on with your day.

    Recently.. Okay for a pretty damn good time now I've noticed AF has come off as a declining website. AF has good members, a great admin, and a chat more active than most! Quite honestly, I can't say AF isnt a good forum, because it really is. Though re examine my sentence. I said the word good, not great. Lately, AF has seemed to decline much more, as in thread quality and activity. Really, the only relavant threads belong to a troll AND a thread being posted on by the same members. AF is basically a family to me, and seeing this really disgusts me!

    Why am I ranting and risking myself to being completely bashed over the next few days? The answer is clear. I care. I hate seeing AF decline. If something isnt done, AF will continue to decline and lose importance.. Will it ever die? No, that is highly doubtful, but REALLY.. reaching the point of not dying isn't a good thing! Actually it borders risky. At one point, AF was stronger than A4\OC, but saying that now would be a work of fiction. How did A4 get stronger? How did A4 reach a point where any blog could get 25 blog replies and that look normal? How did A4 reach a point where 50+ people are on at once? One word. REVAMP. AF needs a revamp. Something to catch the guests' eye. Im no pro, but seeing how advance some forums are.. why can't AF do the same?

    AF feels aged. Very aged. This is no one's fault, as forums looking aged is normal. Though not doing something about it IMO is wrong. How can I prove my point of AF declining? Which section is the most active? This, obviously. Actually that is why I posted this here. I knew people would click it! Some sections are dying, which is the fault of the members. AF shouldn't have near dead sections! It means interest has declined. AF is old, so seeing this isn't a shock.. Though AF is WAY TOO good for dying sections!

    The banners need to be changed. Ive seen the same ones for years! At least to stay updated with anime out nowadays. Lucky Star is great, but why not an Acchi Kocchi one? It shows the site is stll being updated, and still cared about! Is making new banners difficult? I understand people are busy, but somebody should be able to.

    Ive gotten four members to join in the past year, and ALL said the same thing. "Activity and Design". Toon stuck around, but I feel not for long. Why should we care? Every member counts. Thats why.

    Guests viewing this. JOIN. I know me saying that isnt enough, but AF deserves the help. You'd love it here! At least give us a chance. Join the family OR even tell your friends. Every member counts. Im getting tired of seeing the same threads over and over. Complaining won't help, but doing work will.

    Somebody had to say it. Honestly, its true. Denying it is only making matters worse. Reply or even make jokes, honestly its only keeping AF from progress. Go ahead. AF your take? Ace. Your take? I feel like this needed to be said. Really. Rest is up to you.
    As the members get older, their lives become more busier. There's probably not a lot of new members coming in that have the free time to be on here which is natural. There are also a lot of competing sites such as social and meme sites that are becoming more popular. So it probably makes sense why this site is not as active as it was.
