I like to check at least once a day. Belive it or not I really enjoy this place.

Probably the usual cycle of life and death that the forum goes through. Nothing new, just got to wait for people to return/new blood to pour in.
Honestly this forum has a horrible bounce rate. If my memory serves me well, over the past year the only new person who has stayed in the forum for more than two months is, well myself.

It always has, but its gotten worse. have a few ideas what's contributing to it, but nothing I want to voice publicly just yet.

It probably has something to do with the fact that the biggest attractions to Twokinds, other than the comic itself, aren't hosted here. The sketches and other stuff like side comics, etc, are all easier to find and comment on through Patreon, and then the art streams/voting is done over at Picarto. So most people are going to be migrating over there to do the stuff that used to be done here. Plus most new people are likely to find those places first before ever even clicking the "forum" button.

At any rate, I'm winning :squirrel:

No, you are the third one replying after my previous post, so I will post again.

clearly phpbb popularity has fallen sharply the past decade. And most younglings that might be interested in the comic probably find a forum to be too archaic for them especially In this social media era where tools like patreon an Twitter accomplish the same function while having more features and being much more user friendly.
Yet, it might simply be that I have fond memories of internet forums but I do think this platform has has things that no Facebook post an offer.
In any case I'm rambling now and then this is still a race isn't it?

Welcome. This will bore you sooner or later.

I find most newer services are less ideal for long-form discussion, but that's about it.

Oh, there are a number of forums similar to this one that are still going strong. It depends on what wants to be discussed and how much.

Well of course, despite being old the software is still lovely maintained (latest commit was 5 hours ago) and I have no doubt there are lots of active forums like this in the internet. The official minecraft forum comes to mind.
Alas it is not like the late 2000's and early 2010's were almost every website (with a community) under the sun had a forum. Yet once facebook twitter and all that came knocking the door the popularity went down sharply. And most younger people i have dealt with find this type of interfaces unwieldly at best and unsusable at worst. Personally i do think these types of forums favor stronger community building and deep discussion than social media but that does not mean more recent alternatives have more and better features and are easier to use.
Alas if i am not mistaken it is also finals month in most of the world that might be the reason if feels quieter here than usual.

I also prefer forums. I like the quiet, not cluttered view, just the subject you want to read.

Well sometimes I do feel like the old Man yelling at Cloud change, remembering the "good old" times and complaining about the youth.
And I am only a quarter century old!
