This forum has gone to shite

Post by jerzy_dudek1 » Wed Oct 03, 2012 1:02 am

I know I shouldnt be complaining because I am not that much of an active poster I've said it before I pop in I pop out here and there with my superior knowledge on just about everything and anything but recently this forum has gone down hill hard. Barely any new topics, no new posts in re-occurring topics polish players in europe, champions league, and the BVB thread (which was a very popular one at that and our boys are still doing good there).

Now I know our shit show of a performance at euro is one factor for the decrease in activity here but I think the mini chat may be taking away from the posting activity as well matches are on or some crazy new world story or youtube video comes up.

Now I dont want to take away from the mini chat cuz I do see some of you die hard fifa gamers planning club matches and online gameplay which is cool I think (which I would join but EA sports wont let me due to the decreased sales in the past few years from me raping and making other players cry online)

I see some interesting posts in the mini chat but for me to follow when I log on on what exactly is going on I have to scroll up by which at that point the first few statements that started the topic is gone

whats everyone elses take on this

The forum has definitely gone down hill...but the chat is just amplifying it and not really the cause in my opinion.

I remember when we used chat just for games and it was cool...but i don't think it would be good too revert back to that, just because it is popular and useful for a lot of users as you implied.

For me though, the main issue is the best posters are simply gone or post a lot less frequently....they probably went on and got lives....it's really disparaging :lol: And also as you mentioned, the team has had some real drama; I think some of the older posters have come to the conclusion that following the team die hard is just not that healthy....and I don't think they are any less of fans for it....it's just at some point it is too much.

I try to post more myself, but then again, I find it a less useful than before.

It's not just the NT's failure in the EURO, it's the clubs as well.

Legia, Wisla, Lech and Slask have all either been shit this season, or imploded over the summer and don't excite anyone anymore.

People are less interested in Polish football this season because there is not much to get excited about. Maybe if our clubs were half-competent and in Europe things would be different.

There are a few reasons why this forum has gone to shit.

- Polish Soccer is at an all time low and people have given up
- Old user leaving and very few new users registering
- The chat has a lot to do with it

Id rather talk shit about Gola and talk about FIFA in the chat rather than sound like a broken record about our NT and Majewski. The Chat makes it fun to go on these forums

Ever since Metro has joined the priesthood or left or died or what not, this forum has gone to shit.

The chat is filled with pre-pubescent nerds who can't get a job or pussy so they play fifa all day long in their moms basement. I say bring back Metro and get rid of the chat window and we'll be fine!

I am a Noob-Star, let me share my thoughts

- Valid blame put on the Chat & explains the decline of the Off-Topic board but shouldn't explain why the other boards are struggling

- From what I understand & seen, this board was born in 2002? I too started posting sports on Message Boards (ESPN was my first) in the early 2000's, which means most of us are between 25-40 years old at this point. At that age you are talking Post-College & families. Difficult to not only find the time to Post but even watch the matches (Sports).

- To be specific, there is a Forum & group of regulars I've posted with since 2005 & it's the same story. How many times can you discuss the same topics & make the same jokes etc?

- Interesting point about only allowing the Chat during games. You must keep in mind this will lead to more (& shittier) threads made but also destroy some of the contacts we've made on chat. The chat is one thing that sets this board apart in my eyes.

Ultimately the blame falls on the product & that is Polish Football.
