I don’t think I’ve ever actually agreed with her. There’s always a first
Are people going to another dip site...or is interest in dip generally declining?
Sigh, is it that time of the year already? The yearly "AH THE SITE IS DYING...oh jmo posted the actual % +- of games from last year and it's not dying, nvm" thread?
Along with the yearly "the old forum drove away new members and sane people" thread.

As you're keen, why not? How many classic games were played in the last 12 months and how many in the 12 months before?

This site is dying.
Yea the old forum, contrary to mod centric bias, was the heart and soul of this site. It was fun to see the forum daily. Now you have to actually go hunting on the forum and its really just added a few emoji and pushed the forum users off into a clearly seperate area of the site.

The forum and its games are now the only sign of life left in it. The everyday topics are now just divided up so much its hard to tell what is worth clicking on to read. The political forum is anything goes but theres not much worth reading. Off topic is barely alive and rather dead.

I genuinely don't care about the forum. But I want more new devoted dip players, I don't recall anyone new who's caught my eye.

I just miss the feeling of loggin on and checking the latest forum madness. I am probably just a fringe weirdo who always felt this was home even if I was average or worse at the game. I dont play diplomacy anymore. But I like the ppl here alot

C’mon Wyatt just go do it.
Do it!
You want to be cool, right?
Go in now, go do it already.

Any luck?

The problem with millennials is they were brought up to think, that their thoughts actually matter. — things that make people chuckle ——
I am probably older than you, young whippersnapper. I remember the time when people could discuss the issues of the day without cursing or abuse.

Now get off my lawn! :P
Shoo flea. Older and dumber maybe. Take a hike. I’m guessing not older. Dumber for sure
As high brow and modest as always in your commentary there ssorenn...
