Leifr Errikson asked me this question tonight and I thought I'd answer it...but then I thought-you guys should answer it for me. So use your imagination. Post pictures, videos, stories, poetry....as to why I, or other members, don't post very much on the phora anymore.

Stupid thread I know.

Sturmwaffen has probably been kidnapped and horribly killed, now his murderer is taunting us with his old account

Because you've been beating your meat non-stop with Tarasi, extorting information and meaningless positions of power on message boards.

This is true. I really do miss the old Phora, where it seemed the intellectual snobbiness intimidated most people from posting. Now these type of threads have become commonplace.

I second this. Petr is right. It could be because quality posters are wrapped up into college as semester's are ending around now.

Sturmwaffen was never a quality poster and I believe he's still in high school.

Like Jaybird and Martin Lindstedt.

I'd rather have them posting than the Young Communist League, putting everyone to sleep.

Highly irrelivent. The reason my posts all suck is because of my pitiful attempt to make each post humorous.

This is the reason why my posts have been shorter than usual, but it will all be over next week.

Maybe you should stop trying to do that because your posts are terrible. Whenever you stop posting, I don't notice until you come back, then I think to myself that the forum benefitted slightly from your absence and it would be nice if you left again.

Which Russians?

I think Gleb was one and "ПЁTP CMИPHOBЪ" was another.

You know what else could possibly explain it, just a theory, and I don't claim this is "it." I think when the Republicans got slaughtered in the elections, a lot of people who are pissed off at the current situation (though I don't think democrats are better) are no longer as rebellious.

I agree on two points: this thread sucks and the Phora is slipping. I blame it on the subtle invasion from MSF.

The real Sturmwaffen tried to climb Mt. Hood and got caught in a snowstorm.
He froze to death in an ice cave.
His account was taken over by the newly-banned Glenn Miller,
who is here in the guise of Sturmwaffen to spy on the Phora kike-a-likes
and nancy boys.

A group of rescuers from Portland Mountain Rescue located at 9600 feet above sea level
climb to the summit of Mount Hood to find Sturmwaffen's body in an ice cave.

Yes, without even realitzing that the Phora had never such traffic as now. Just the other day we broke again our user online record.

As of Sturmwaffen...I though you got killed by Nato soldiers :D :p

Petr...he is only trying to get people to post again at OD.

This is cyclic...people grow tired, are busy elsewhere, etc, etc...You might notice that as people stop posting others who had not done so in months come back. Once you have a certain momentum its not really that tragic to rotate people.

Problem is quality versus quantity. I don't consider an influx of pinkies to be a step in the right direction. What worse we have lost Lenny.

Yeah. Uh huh. Somewhat. If a poster has a problem with that they should take initiative and make quality posts or shuddap (=main point). Too much namby-pamby whining for a male-dominated forum? What if, WHAT IF (for the dreamers) there was a large amount of quality posts being made...it would be an internet UTOPIA, not so much 'oh lordy looks who's forty' (probably should end birfday threads, great attraction for spam and one-liners; quantity, just, meaningless quantity). Of course, brevity makes way for quantity, as often seen in the lounge area, but quality is much more subjective (as is: 'who fucking cares?' meaning: it can be insignificant because no one gives a shit, yet at the same time no one giving a shit does not render the subject insignificant)

Tried my best to make sense as well as provide sufficient quantity.
:yay:

Most people are followers, not leaders, and tend to post on whatever threads are available. To be successful, a forum needs an elite of posters capable of initiating interesting threads of substance, and enough latent knowledge and intelligence within the membership to sustain a discussion. Like in politics, people desire strong, charismatic leadership to give them direction, which is why "characters" like Lenny and Glenn Miller attract so much attention. There is also an element of Internet voyeurism at play here.

It is time for the Phora's dormant leadership caste to take the bull by the horns and start initiating discussion that takes the forum in the direction they want it to head, instead of sitting back and complaining about the quality of posts, as if more aggressive moderation is somehow going to create something of value by starting with mediocrity and then subtracting from it.

It's not snooty if it is recognised that the "leadership caste" is self-selecting. Anyone can show themselves to be a member of it by posting good content on the board. Anyway, I was just trying to inspire people with a bit of elitist fascist philosophy (transposed to the admittedly mundane setting of Internet message boards) :D
