Our expectations have been anchored too high; this place seems dead in comparison to its past, but it's not doing any worse than Blackpill.is or RGIF.is. Maybe slow and steady wins the race. (Although rape sites tend to have spikes of activity and then dead periods, I've found)

Content is king, by the way. Comparing the number of active users, or the number of posts, is just a dick-measuring contest. What matters is quality content creation (whether it's entertaining content, or insightful content, or whatever) and the overall enjoyability of the site. E.g., we may actually have gained from the "loss" of FukkenLoser.

This site still has the potential to grow even if it's slow going.
There are different ways to use a forum. One way is when you have nothing in particular on your mind, and so you just go there to see what people are saying, and be stimulated by it. In that case, yeah, a high level of activity is helpful.

Another way is to go there when you have something you want to discuss, and start a conversation. I think the forum serves that purpose, because it's rare that someone would post a thread and not get a response.

When it comes to being able to host conversations about topics that are on people's minds, we could actually be more useful than Incels.is because we can talk more candidly about certain stuff. E.g. if someone were trying to ascend in Japan, they wouldn't have to hide their success or potential for success. We just don't have anyone around right now who seems interested in going over there and getting laid.

It's really a question of how bored you are. If you're bored, then you want to go where there's a lot of traffic and discussion. If you actually have a lot to say, though, then high traffic can actually be a liability sometimes, because your threads might get buried. Especially if there's a lot of shitposting going on, it can become impossible to have a serious discussion because it gets drowned out by the high volume of shitposts, and people may even discourage you from posting anything lengthy and thoughtful, by saying this isn't the right forum for it.

We've had different arcs, where the site was used for different purposes. We might actually be going more seriously otaku at this point, especially as the other sites like Blackpill.is develop more and therefore this site gets reserved more for weeb stuff rather than general inceldom/blackpill discussion. That's not really a bad thing; it just means that we have to start back at a low level of activity and build back up on the basis of a new premise, which is that the traffic will be based on otaku content rather than shitposting.
