Is it me, or has traffic here really slowed in the last few years?
show user profile  HANZZ
I remember a few years ago, that a message posted would be buried under a dozen or more posts in just a matter of hours. After a day, it'd be two pages back. Now, a post lingers right where it is for days. Anyone have thoughts on why the strange slowdown here?

I think Max has less new users than it used to have, and the internet has more answers than it used to.

I think the place still has life in it, but it's definitely less populated than a few years back.

Yeah it is, sometimes i think maybe the forums broke as it hasn't moved when i check back..

I think Nik is bang on, youtube for absolutely everything about everything now. As i suggested before if Maxforums could evolve, not just as a forum but as a platform for sharing content, tutorials, etc it would maybe catch up with the rest of the internet..

Still the only really personable place on the web and feels like home. There's classic websites and there's mobile platforms now though right, two different things..

Shoul we start making tutorials and dump it to youtube?

P.S.: Just don't spend the first 15 minutes speaking of how hard your cat's life is....

Congrats, you found my signature.

Not as such. I think if the actual structure/format of Maxforums enabled content/tutorials/articles to be posted or linked in ( sortof like a blog that's contributed to by everyone ) then people could grab content, link to content, create content, share it on the site and open up discussion in a way that is far more contemporary than what we have now which is just - a forum.

I think opening up visibility is key. At the moment, the only real difference between a forum and a blog is that the posts in a blog are visible without actually clicking on them, whereas a forum it's all locked up behind thread titles. That and the tools that are available for posting/formatting etc. We need eye-candy on this site man :) People will come back if there's cool stuff to see, if it's a good source of tutorials etc, even if that's just users posting links to stuff they've found online etc.. Does ANYBODY see what i'm getting at here? Feel free to disagree btw..

It's more about the structure/format of the site, build it and they will come..

I think also making it mobile/responsive also goes without saying.

To be honest, if I have a question these days the first place I go to is youtube. This place is more of a hangout for me.

Well if that's you're contribution, you might as well just sit back and watch it die.. I've been around here for a number of years and would rather that didn't happen tbh!

As mentioned, the internet has evolved and the site has not. I was actually unable to do anything about this because the technology used for this site is so old, i dont even remember how it all works again, let alone that i would start adding stuff.

I've started rewriting everything from scratch in oktober last year. I hope to have finished up before the end of the year. This new version should:
- at least provide the functionality that there is now, and bump it to modern standards (good readability on smartphones, image uploads)
- bump the technology behind it so i can/want to work on it again
- do a lot more with the image galleries.
- update the design (the most challenging part ...)

So the first goal is to have this online asap, but after that, i want to keep the momentum and keep adding more stuff, based on what you guys feel needs to be added.

I find quick answers here, whereas YT is more for protracted workflows on a given issue. That's the main value I've found in MF for so long.

@ spoon , you have access to lots of artists for sure. I'm certain some of them with web graphic design experience would be willing to concept out some things, or maybe even deliver final pieces.

Google and Facebook...but also there was a few knob jockeys that made it no longer fun to visit.
