Or might as well be. I dunno if you've noticed this or not, but the forums here have varying degrees of popularity. This is natural and nothing to be concerned about. However, the great disparity between forums that are popular and ones that are less popular is just...well disheartening. Especially if you've got a special place in your heart for one of the dead forums.
The forums that I'm specifically talking about, of course, are the creative ones. Namely (in order as they appear on the home page) Photography, Fanart, Cosplay, [arguably] Table Top, and Fanfiction. Considering where this thread is, you probably know that I want to talk specifically about Fanfic.
Okay so I'm a very fickle writer. But I love to write and I think that I'm pretty good at it. I hate that this place is a ghost town. I wish there was as much traffic here as there is in Sig and Avies and RPG. I know that, in the past, Fabala has done her darnedest to get more attention to this board and coax members into posting. She personally unlocked ALL of the threads in this forum after Ace removed the automatic 60 day lock. She also went through and moved all the poems to the subforum as well properly titled everything. Her new nifty sorting system is really convenient. I myself campaigned to (which is a really fancy way of saying bugged the crap out of) my friends to post their writing, any writing, here for others to read. And I tried to persuade them to read others' work as well. But we can't do it alone.
Please, help us. Help us pinpoint exactly why this forum is less visited than others, and if you can brainstorm ways to change this. All opinions are welcome and encouraged. Your input is most appreciated!
