Dying? Nooooo!

#3 Posted by Slinger (7640 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think it's dying, there are certain times and mixes of users that can cause a lot of activity to happen.

#4 Posted by Octagon Freak (11158 posts) - - Show Bio

I've noticed a lot less activity in all of the forums, and less and less people online that are actually active.

So is this website dying? Or am I just looking at all the threads at the wrong times?

No it's the battle forums. The battle forums are always always lively.

The site has never been more popular (in my opinion). Lets not forget that the Vine isn't just the forums, theres the contribution pages as well. Maybe you need to expand to more threads. Thats not a shot but I know you like to frequent in the Vine Villains thread, in which case I don't blame you for thinking the Vine is dying.

I can only speak for myself, but the Vine has never been better. There are new users arriving everyday as well as new and creative threads. Lets not forget that today is Sunday as well as Memorial Day Weekend.

The Vine will never die. It will only multiple.

Well, I think I can say that activity has dropped since over a year ago when I first got here.

There were lots of cool people, and teams were solid for longer ammounts of time, even the ones that Gambler led...

The site just seems much less fun and active as it was awhile ago.... Man I sound old...

I know how you feel. Most of my old friends are long gone, and most of the more famous viners. P-man. Walkingstone, Ronny, Donnieman, new venom, practically everyone on my friend's list are no longer here. And the loss that makes me saddest is octagon enigma.

Yes, read his blog, and this leaves me the task of dealing with halo fanboys. I already have hulk, dbz, wolverine, Anime in general, and U.S.A fanatics to deal with. I don't need Halo fanboys too.

Bah! I haven't been in the VV thread in awhile. I know no one is there, lol. And I can't see the contribution pages, because I'm not a moderator, and think I'm better than everyone like Gambler.....

Yes you can http://www.comicvine.com/sitestats/ . Unless you mean you can't see new users' subs but new users' approved subs go on that page like any other sub & only account for a fraction of the day's total.

Character subs used to average in the 100-200 daily range, last week character subs hit 600 a day, now its averaging around 300 a day so... Gambler saying its never been more popular is totally true. Not even considering the new comics subs that come in, interviews G-Man does with big name creators, creators actually coming on the site & submitting stuff, the forums, powers/battle voting, more issue reviews than ever.

Just checked some data. The site traffic is up. It's continuously been increasing at a drastic rate since we've launched. Believe me, I keep an eye on it.

As far as professionals on site, yes there are some actual ones. Some make it clear who they are on their myvine pages. They don't necessarily use their real names as their user names, just like most of us don't. There are others that I believe try to stay a little under the radar.

And be prepared after the re-launch for traffic to increase even more. As far as the times when it's slow, that's because of heavy traffic. Too many users can slow things down. Remember that you don't have to be a registered user or be logged in to be on the site. We will be switching to a new server also so traffic increase won't slow the site down. If anything, it'll be going faster.
