Feels...

New.

Unlike the new Radiohead songs that don't exist yet.

Here's what I think...

Basically, the "new Admins" that took over at one point dragged the forum down.

What happened was that a few people quite and the guys in charge started "randomly" banning people for no apparent reason. As many of you are probably aware, there's been an at times overtly rough tone on certain areas of the board. However, roughly around 2013, that was mostly gone. Yeah, people were aloof and a lot of "alter ego" nihilism/shitposting was going on, but most (if not all) were pretty lovely fellas outside the board and by the mentioned time, it had pretty much fizzled down entirely.

However, when a bunch of people got banned for seemingly no reason, it became clear that things just went out of hand. I clearly remember posting some legit questions and stuff in the Moon Shaped Pool thread on there, which got pretty much "insta deleted", with one of the mods threatening me to ban me if I continued... which is nuts, as I mostly cared for the music and movies subs and never went to the insane trolling heights common on Gen.

By the end, it clearly devolved to favoritism and the Admins essentially losing themselves in the "alternate reality" the board so well managed to establish. It's a shame. The 2000-2012 times were absolutely wonderful. And yes, Ash is sorely missed.

I don't think it's going to ever get back to being even remotely popular ?

 

like not even half of 1% of what it once was!

 

what was once before can never be!

 

again!

I think it needs more exposure.  Post that it's back on Reddit and we'll get new blood.  

It's been posted to Reddit at least twice.

Well I guess we will be like old men yelling at each other on the park bench.

Which is why it feels like home.
