  • Does Forum atrophy exist?

    When I consider the several Fora (posh Latin plural!) that I have joined over the years I can report that all seem to have withered and slowly died.

    Actually a couple have suddenly imploded just after I have joined. I'd like to think that it has had nothing to do with me. Please reassure me - if you can.

    Is there an Autumnal tint to this Forum?

    I think a lot depends on whether a forum is over moderated. My own enthusiasm for this forum waned considerably when a censorship regime was introduced where posts were moderated and sometimes deleted before being posted and when the incomprehensible kvetching concept was introduced.

    I have also recently seen a situation on another forum where several months of interesting threads were suddenly mangled because a moderator obliterated a single user. When that sort of thing happens users lose confidence and interest.

      Too many categories for my taste.

        I've never seen the forum this dull on DNA day!!!

        (I agree that there are too many categories.)
