(yo i mean no offense here and if you end up being offended then sorry)

I completely agree.

I still love dS. Really, I still do. But something's missing. And because that something is missing, the site is less fun.

I know I was saying I was becoming more inactive due to testing, and yes, that certainly is one of the reasons. But, I still have a lot of time to go on dS after I finish my testing, get dismissed from school, go around doing errands, and ect. I just prefer to not spend it on dS because it's just less fun.

There's no balance between "fun" and "seriousness" anymore. Heck, neither of those things really even exist here anymore. No offense to anyone, but most of the time nowadays people are either trying too hard to be funny or taking trolling/jokes too seriously (rule #1 of the internet is basically "don't feed the trolls"), and because of these two things, it seems like visiting is a chore, and is boring.


Lemme reiterate. I. STILL. LOVE. D.S. I still love the people here (i even love bravo no matter how much we seem to fight), and I still think we're family. And you know what? I can't just leave my family behind! The people on this site helped me a lot. Most of my friends are on this site. Even though I COULD talk to them elsewhere, I can't talk to some of them elsewhere. And we'd certainly never be scrunched up together in a group (not even the skype group) and have it feel the same. Something about having all the members on this site (or at least this board) in the way we are just home.

So yeah, things aren't as fun as they used to. But I still love every one of you little guys, and I'm determined that things WILL be exactly, if not, almost exactly, the way they were before. Well, exactly wouldn't be very great (it'd be the same as always then and get boring), but I guess what I aim for is BETTER than before. I know that there are a lot of people here nowadays that would make the way "old" dS was a million times better.

I agree with this a lot.

I've been off a lot less lately because, to be honest, anything seems more fun than dS. It had its charm for a while, but it just kind of faded. Something is missing and everyone has changed. People have matured (or immatured, in my case) and the site in its entirety just got somewhat lackluster. The users that were my best friends for a long time (ex: CInderLover, BigBoom, C1nder, TheFlyingSeal, Spyrobaro, Coocie2) all seem absent from the site, making the place seem like a lifeless shell of what it once was.

Sure, we had our moments when we thought all was lost, that we were going to leave and never come back, but we eventually did. Now, it seems like that once great "dS Addiction" has been seemingly cured from the users that it manifested in. It thrived in the most active of us, making the forums seem like a home away from home. Now, it feels as if that once mighty protection, the virtual shield we once hid from our problems under, has disintegrated, leaving us as prey to the outside world, drawing us away.

So yes, something is missing. Something big. The worst part is, we can't even figure out what it is.

I believe its the absence of worthwhile topics that have a point, and the older users that would make the great topics and post. And i do think a little excitement or a particularly good topic will raise a bit of what SaN used to be. (I haven't been here as long as most users talking about this, but thats just my point of view)

Sorry if that was hard to understand.

there was never any great topics on darkspyro

Well no one pays attention to the topics I make, so I just try to contribute to everyone else's. <.<;
Congrats! You wasted five seconds reading this.

I agree with most of what's been said. There seems to be something missing about this site now, as to me it has gotten considerably more boring (hence the lack of activity).

It doesn't help that a fair amount of topics in this section are............well..........****.

I personally feel that this section has become much less entertaining. I used to post in this section a lot, but now I just don't see any topics that actually interest me anymore. Most of the topics are either stupid trends, absolute crap, or aran topics (which can sometimes be interesting) (also, no offence bro). The newbies seem to be less entertaining as they get way too butthurt way too easily (which can be fun at times) and call anyone that disagrees with them or says something that can be called "rude" "trolls", when they have no idea what an actual troll is and it's getting very old. When I post topics, they usually get very little attention, but that's normal across the forum for me. I still feel like this part of the forum is much worse than it was back when I joined early last year. This section has always been crap, but it's just becoming crap crap.

I still love you guys though. <3333

Simple solution to a simple problem...

The Problem?
People aren't seeing topics they are interested in, yet aren't taking that much of an initiative to make topics that they would be interested in. And when they do, these topics are about niche things that not everyone is into, so they ignore the topics, or make fun of them (stuff like a topic just for furries are perfect examples).

The Solution?
Just post a topic about something discussible more often. Whether it be light hearted or serious, accessible or demanding. Like, if you find yourself wanting to discuss something but shy away from making a topic, then make the topic from now on.
