Just wondering because this forum seems kind of dead. And last time i was here it was before Platinum came out and the forum was very active from they announce the game until the release.

I wasn't bragging about the PPD, really. Members commented saying they saw this forum as dying, and it's still quite high up there compared to other forums. Which, obviously, was me trying to show this forum is not dead.

GT5 was released how long ago? Of course if people are going to revisit the forum of a game they like every now and then, it'll gain activity. Black and White 2 has passed the confirmation/speculation part that comes around when a game first came out, as well as the Japanese release as stated earlier. Now that we're within a week of release, activity is actually starting to pick up again, and I see it taking off again.
We still have yet to see what happens after release. The release of Black/White drew more members in, including myself.


And if you'd like to record yourself for me to hear, by all means go ahead man. I don't see any rule or other reason not to.
You'd probably need to keep it on topic, though.

Ah, fair enough. From my end it seemed like you were bragging about it, which I just felt was a little strange since, in my opinion, the PPD is inflated due to off-topic posts, that's all.

It was released near the end of 2010. Just used it as an example since it was the first forum I regularly visited/posted. Just also happened that it's current 133 page GD was making it boost the forum onto the top core games, haha.
I'm sure I could see the forum taking off again with the announcement of major DLC, but pretty much all posts over there aren't about the game since, to be honest, it wasn't all that good for the seemingly endless amount of time it took to develop.
I'm sure I'll possibly be visiting here a bit more frequently when the game releases. I might get a 3DS too, but hell that's because I wanna play Mario Kart

Although...record yourself, embed it into the forum home page and give everyone a greeting whenever they visit here. Kinda like the Mortal Kombat forum looping the MK theme song constantly -_-

Honestly, many of the members of the GD also post elsewhere in Black and White 2. We'd lose like, two people if the GD were to be shut down. Many of the regulars I see in the GD are regulars I see posting in the rest of the forums.
I'm talking about this forum, as I already said.
Haha, whoops. There's an extra "s" on the end of forum. I was trying to refer to this forum.

Back when the game was released in Japan, Black and White 2 soared into the top five, even above the popular Loungin' a few times. In the following weeks, we've repeated ourselves through "our GD alone" as well.
Likewise, I could have said at GT5's release and for several months afterwards it was the number one core game, but once again, I said we are talking about very recently. You're bragging about the PPD now, I bring up an example that relates to the past week or two. You retort with information that relates to months ago. If you wanted me to retort with information that was relevant months ago, I could have told you that GT5 was the top core game.

Unless you wanted me to record my voice, loop it and send it to you, I think I'm done repeating myself for now.

Perhaps it shouldn't be made out that the forum is in such a 'great' position, when it has been put into such a position through posts that aren't even related to the playing of the game itself. Sure, the game isn't out yet, but I really wouldn't brag about how active this place is, considering the measures taken to get there. Take the GD out, and there go half your members who actually visit this forum, because I certainly don't see many of them posting elsewhere here.

Oh, and one more thing to consider, Eiche. Gran Turismo 5 made it recently to well within the top 10 core games through pretty much a General Discussion thread alone. Now THAT, I think, is something to brag about.

    Perhaps before you mock how Eiche and I keep our activity, you should realise we do put planning into this forum and discuss every move.

LOL. lrn2notify. While I generally just delete PM's and notifications without looking at them, it would still be nice to know you actually had something to say on the topic...unless you thought I wouldn't be back. How confusing.

    Except that's usually games that have had their release and are on the decrease. This forum is just on a slow ascent.
    The hurt and heal came when the forum was very much active as a reward for those keeping up the activity. The Zoroark Game came later because it's hard to find someone who will run a game with that much involvement required. We weren't going to turn down such a lovely offer when the game was so popular in Black because we would never get it again.

Guys, Black and White 2 has the 12th highest PPD. I wouldn't exactly call it dead.
.

Get rid of the game threads and see what happens.

Besides, aren't game threads what they use to inject some activity into dead forums anyway?

    This place isn't that dead. But it would be less dead if people other than me posted threads. Activity isn't a magic thing that miraculously comes and goes. You contribute to it. If you think it's dead, then post more and make more threads. You cannot sit around complaining it's dead if you do not participate because it's your lack of participation that makes it dead.

    Anyway, yes, the activity should experience a mini explosion. ^-^

It sure did, along with every other forum I have ever moderated or watched over as a section. These things are always off and on and sometimes take time. So patience is key in situations like these. Just keep posting new and interesting topics and if you have a good memberbase people will post.
