One thing I've noticed is it looks like the site, at least the OT where I stay most of the time, has stopped growing


didn't really adapt to new wants:


1. porn
2. racism
3. lol..trolling

get you banned......reddit/4chan grow while TD/Republicians/TheChurch lose ground

I disagree. There's a new idiot introducing himself every week.


Well you kinda proved my point. You said "a new idiot" instead of "new idiots". A board on a site this big should have more new people coming in than one or two a week.

Look at this thread as an example. As I type this there are 19 replies from members who joined in

2009
2008
2007
2012 (you)
2007
2003
2007
2006
2010
2011 (me)
2008
2011 (JDM1992)
2005
2012 (you again)
2004
2011 (JDM again)
2008
2012 (Harry Ballzack)
2010
2010

In short, like I said, the OT is simply now growing any longer. Not saying that's a positive or a negative. Each person will have their own opinion whether or not new traffic to a message board is a good or bad thing.

The original website started back in 2001 I believe.

Your example shows lots of people who joined in the past 2 years posting in this thread. You are disproving your point even on a such ridiculously small sample size.

I don't know if that is necessarily the case. I came here as a new poster knowing exactly what to expect. The main thing that keeps me from posting is that the site is just a bit too busy, which makes it hard to just casually stay involved in topics. You post in a thread and a couple hours later it is on page 3. You either have to spend a fair amount of time here to follow up with your posts, or work too hard to follow up later. I prefer slower boards in which the day's topics remain on page 1 for a day or so, and real discussion occurs.

About 20% or so. Pretty strong for just 2 years of members.

Every since I've been on, TD had always been on top of every story LSU or otherwise. I always came here first for news.

Actually this is something I've been watching for a while now. In each thread I look to see who is posting and how long they have been here. And I have noted that in virtually every thread there are is a predominance of posters who have been here 2+ years.

And once again, I'm not trying to turn this in a pro or con noob thing, people will have their own opinion pro or con and there is nothing that I or anyone else can say that will change it. Rather it's just an observation.

Maybe one day I'll plot through the present, but I don't have that much free time right now

Looks odd seeing the OT front page and not seeing a GMT, lunch or LNS thread at the top.

I started posting in December 2002 and traffic was steady. More people started posting after the lair went to pay sight around that same time.

The site was around for a few years prior and most of the posters were friends or family of chicken and circus with the one exception of _______.
