    Better forums exist though.


    Myanimelist has 400+ people on the forum at one time and that's just one of the forum options. Anime Forum is done and the site will never be active again. Not even 2013 active (activity was rough then too..).


    Like I said, this thread was dumb but people need to be aware more options exist.

    It saddens me that I could do very little to keep this place alive. Life changes including a shift in personal needs took me away. I tried to hang on but my fingers couldn't weave words like they used to, I lost that spark I had in my teen years when I RP'd like crazy.

    This site took me in, I met my first significant other here and had many of my early major dramas through here. I felt respected, accepted and even looked up to here. Animeforum was my community, and taught me many things. It was a place where I could be who I wanted.

    This place will always be in my heart gilded with a certain nostalgia. Until the day it may disappear I will keep peeking, seeing if someone messaged me or if new life returned to it.

    Best wishes.


    Perhaps the world was never meant to make perfect sense.

    This really sums a lot up. It was a place that I think most users invested a lot of time in during their developmental years, but when you think about it, there must be countless similar places online that have their own histories and elicit their own nostalgic feelings in former regulars.

    Without a doubt, the net I grew up with is essentially deceased. I acknowledge that to be the case since so much has changed.

    High-speed net access is now essentially the norm, and if someone were to have told me I'd be browsing the net on a cellphone in the future (back in 200X) I'd have assumed they were legitimately insane. We take them for granted now, but I remember when Wikipedia & YouTube didn't even exist, and crude Flash games/animations were huge.

    Since the "old" net is essentially dead, I guess "old" style forums are simply another one of the casualties.

    It isn't all bad, though. I've been checking this place every day lately and there's been frequent new posts to indulge in – I'd take that over a forum that has been consumed by spambots anyday.

    AF is not dead. It's just an older format of Internet communication that only a certain age range is familiar with. New and younger anime viewers are going to use social media platforms to share their interests. Has anyone here ever heard of or even used IRC? IRC is worse off than forums. Probably people in their 30s to 40s are most familiar with and using IRC still. Forums will be just like IRC in maybe 5-10 years (if not already).

    The solution is straightforward: Adapt. You either learn how these social media platforms work, or you enlist the expertise some younger person who is savvy with that stuff. Then try to integrate AF with that format. Then you will have a fair chance to attract new users to the community.

    Otherwise AF will remain exclusive to the current mid 20 to mid 30 year old users for the remainder of its life. New users will be flukes.

    Threads like this pop up all the time here. But the forum still keeps truckin' along. I feel like this place will never truely die until it's closed down. Until then, it's a great way to just catch up with old friends or join and make some new ones. I feel most people know what they're getting as they join anyway. AF doesn't hide their inactivity. They can either choose to stay for the ride or look for something more active. No point worrying or complaining at this point I feel.

    Haha. I totally remember IRC. People were acting like it was the s**t back in the day. I wasn't a fan, but I didn't exactly hate it either.

    As far as this "adapting" thing goes, I get it, but as an individual, I just get tired of the constant cosmetic changes and the uncertainty of online services that seem perfectly stable, usable and beloved.

    Using messengers as an example, MSN died a death but everyone still loved it and tried to keep using it after it was made defunct/integrated with Skype. YIM died a death, and I had amassed a vast list of contacts there that I will now no longer be able to get back or stay in touch with. AIM is completely unrecognisable to me nowadays to the point I just can't use it without longing for the days of miniature avatars.

    As for forums? Frankly, I find Reddit completely dehumanized when it comes the forum experience. No avatars, tiny username, black text on a white background (as a standard) and everything just kind of blurs together. IMO, no personality whatsoever when compared to how creative most people got with old-school forum presentation.

    I'm aware you can beautify subreddits individually and whatnot, but still, everything just kind of blurs together for me despite the fact I've obviously lurked there before. You can usually find a Reddit hit when you're searching for something online, but the same also applies to the old-school style of forums. Reddit is simply "the future", if you will.

    I agree with your logic, however. New users will be flukes web-searching "anime forum", and the success it achieved prior to the decline will not be attained by using the old-school methods.

    I don't have any methods of success besides pandering to current trends to offer at this point.

    Even then, that approach gives off: "How do you do, fellow kids?" vibes.

    So this site gonna revive itself or stay dead? I didn't bother to read all the comments on this thread except for mostly a few of Ace's comments.
    I haven't been nearly long on this site like everyone else but I can say if all currently active members on here start conversing more together and posting interesting things then this site would have become a little bit livelier.

    I would like to get more responses to my postings. It sort of comes and goes. Logging in just now, there were 20 new postings since last night, which is a pretty good number for this site. Sometimes there may be about five.

    But the advantage with a smaller crowd is fewer a-holes. I was formerly on AnimeNation, and at least a third of the people there are anal. There was another site I was on before that where eventually I was the only one posting. My posts got about 200 readers, but not one responded.

    I am pretty happy here.

    I haven't been nearly long on this site like everyone else but I can say if all currently active members on here start conversing more together and posting interesting things then this site would have become a little bit livelier.
    You just joined so you wouldn't know, but the fact is almost nobody cares and haven't cared for years.


    The site is doomed to stay this active.

    Then wouldn't it be a good idea to change the layout of the forum to something more used these days? Change some mods if there is any need to, current members to post more and interesting stuff, not something funny or something happening in their daily life, and finally, ask other people to join from different social sites.

    [EDIT]

    Also, I've found a bunch of spam accounts that are just posting threads with only titles and it can get kind of annoying so to the point, if you guys don't mind, I'll list off members that are spam accounts and others like I mentioned first, who post nothing but thread titles with a blank thread.

    They know about the spam accounts. The moderators have been fighting them for some time now. Fortunately, they get deleted pretty quickly.

    No offense, but don't take the role of the "Anime Forum Hero" because its a role that often always ends up in dissapointment. Your new and obviously thinking your ideas can benefit the forum, but the truth is that I have and others have discussed all your ideas already and none of them will help this website.



    - The layout has been called ugly by people outside Anime Forum and its true that it looks REALLY dated, but I don't see it being changed since the site looking outdated has been brought up for years on end.


    - Change moderators you say? Who's worthy of being moderator? A lot of the current moderators barely post and everybody else top to bottom don't fill the role of what a moderator should be. Instead of making more moderators, focus on your current set of staff.


    - You can't make members post what they don't want to. I have said countless times, but mostly everybody who still posts here outside a select few are stuck in their "safe bubble" and don't really care anymore. There is nothing that can be posted that will make members that don't care start caring.


    Warning: Every member who has joined and started pointed out issues with AF have failed because anything they say falls on deaf ears and interest in this site is gone.

    Who said I was taking the role of a Hero? I prefer villains. You have discussed them but did you try any of them out?

    - Why do you think that the site looking outdated is not going to change? Oh right, it falls on deaf ears. Why does it fall on deaf ears?

    - Nothing to say about this point, honestly saying, no one currently is worthy of moderator but if any slightest chance there is somebody who is worthy then said person should become mod, thus hopefully gaining any the slightest chance it could actually help.

    - I never said anything about actually forcing members to post what they don't want to, basically saying only "if" they did and have any slightest care in the world then this junkyard wouldn't be in this state.

    So basically you have discussed this countless times but never actually tried them out, maybe the reason this place is so dead is because you guys didn't try to save it yourselves? Of course, this is from someone who has just joined and you guys most likely tried to do something so you can bash at me all you want but my reason saying this is, all you have said to me is that you have only discussed it, nothing more, nothing less.

    Another suggestion which would probably fall on deaf ears but this will also mean changing the format of the site. Adding some kind of news articles on the front page about anything new happening in the anime industry or new releases, of course, it's going to take several members to write something, don't want to give you guys workload but the mods, considering they are best fit for this, they should make a few weekly articles and slowly but surely make a thread of sort to see if any members wish to write articles and you guys can check them over and they will take the workload off of you guys, and also, if one doesn't make an article in a weeks time, they will be removed as a writer for the Anime Forum.

    Listen. You're speaking out of complete inexperience and and clearly have no idea what I and others have been through in an attempt to save this website. While I appreciate your attempt to restore activity on this site and its good to see new members offer views on how to restore said activity - The fact is the hero role isn't a good role to tackle because your types have been a dime a dozen. So many people with sparkles in their eyes have tried to tell us how to fix up this website and have all claimed they'll be the one to fix it, but want to know where they've all ended up? They've all quit or taken a hiatus because they discovered I was right and every idea they came up with fell on deaf ears.


    Since you don't know - I have tried my hardest to fix this website or tell people it was going to end up dead. The fact is, NOBODY cares! Absolutely nobody out of a select few and your ideas have been suggesed (by me) and countless others for five years. You can't fix or restore a website that is this far gone and a website that the admins/moderators have let reach this point. If people took my suggestions back in 2012 or if Kaitou Ace didn't break his promise and upgraded Anime Globe, this site could be a lot different now.


    If this website upgraded or fixed itself back in 2012, it might of had a chance. It needed to stay with the times and do what you said, but the staff chose NOT too. Now we have a near dead forum with members and moderators that simply don't care. Honestly, its too late too upgrade this site because its 2017 and the damage has already been done.


    Nobody cares. People on other sites laugh at this website.


    By the way: Disliked because you decided to take a hiatus because this site is "dead". That attitude makes your entire argument hypocritical and nowhere near legitimate. Thanks though.

    Tell me, how the **** did this forum even start up? Yeah, the mods used to care, people were familiar with this type of style in the past and .etc) but nothings really changed, people still like anime, people are joining, all you have to ******* do is change the set up of the forum to something more popular in this day and age. If no admin/moderator gives a **** anymore then it should be logical to give it away to someone who actually cares, I dislike the fact falling into a huge pit with other's who literally don't give a crap about this.

    So you are telling me that the main reason this site is dead is because of the moderators?
    And you tell me there is no need to change moderators? At least remove the ones who gave up hope.

    I want you to calm down and breathe. No, this website isn't dead because of the moderators. This site is near dead because times changed and proper adjustments weren't made back when they needed to be made.


    Members like you are good for the site, but you do understand why I am slamming you right?:


    - Now you're acting like a kid and cussing.
    - Speaking out of assumptions and not being rational.
    - Comes up with ideas then flees once they're challenged.


    Any sane veteran member would look at you with twenty heads. You still have hope, but you need to chill be more rational. Its not too late yet to redeem yourself and be more rational. We can put your attitide and "hiatus" thread behind us.
