It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Yeah, it's been way down, I noticed as well. Looking at the stats page, the trend started (probably) early last year, but the 'new post' totals has fallen much more rapidly this year. Going by posts per day in groups of 100...

January
100-199 posts per day - 1 day (3.2%)
200-299 posts per day - 13 days (41.9%)
300-399 posts per day - 11 days (35.5%)
400+ posts per day - 6 days (19.4%)

February (first 12 days)
100-199 posts per day - 0 days
200-299 posts per day - 6 days (50%)
300-399 posts per day - 5 days (41.7%)
400+ posts per day - 1 day (8.3%)

So up till here the majority of days fall in the 200-399 new posts range. Down some from 2015 levels, and way down from 2014 levels, but still a substantial amount above where it's been at the last 4 weeks:

February (remaining 17 days) and March (first 9 days)
100-199 posts per day - 12 days (46.2%)
200-299 posts per day - 11 days (42.3%)
300-399 posts per day - 3 days (11.5%)
400+ posts per day - 0 days

Numbers for the total page views each day, and total new members, seem about the same as they've been for months. However, new threads being created has also seen a noticeable drop: 356 new threads were started in January, and 348 in February; at the pace we're at right now, though, only about 270 new threads would be created in March. For comparison, the number of new threads created in the January-February-March months in 2015 was 467-381-453 and in 2014 it was 663-557-586. This is all very sloppy and general of course, but you don't really need more precise maths to see the confirmation of what you mentioned. And it could all be a temporary dip, or just a normal cycle of up/down/up/down of discussion boards, though the longer term numbers seem to indicate that this sliding has been happening a while now, and it's just more noticeable because of it speeding up. Again I haven't done precise mathematicals, but just eyeballin it...

New posts in 2012: 167,936
New posts in 2013: 193,906
New posts in 2014: 182,329
New posts in 2015: 128,356

There have been a couple times when the forum had less 'new posts' than the previous year, but each time it was just barely less posts, like 4k one time and 12k another, nothing like the 54+k dip last year. And at the pace things are going this year, we'll only hit ~90,000-100,000 total. Though... the total page views is on a pace to absolutely crush the old record. In fact, we're on pace to have more page views this year than the total page views from first 8 1/2 years of the forum combined. (though I guess the great majority are bots and such trawling old threads?)

Maybe nothing needs to post more so that there is not nothing worthwhile, but nothing posting something worthwhile? Let us see some grand creatio ex nihilo. You alone have the ability to do this.

Playing around with numbers, it seems that if the rest of the year keeps the same rhythm, we will have 100k posts in 2016, which will be the least since 2008. Also, if the rest of March keeps that rhythm, there will be ~5100 posts by the end of the month, which is actually the least since July 2008.

I feel kind of sad for Brother Nathanael. I wouldn't enjoy having been raised a Jew, but he must have horrible grudge in his heart to use all this free pass for racism he probably supposes himself to have.

Also, I'm curious to know where did he find this prophecy about the Antichrist being a homosexual Jew.

After years of effort and practice in perfecting the art of inept governance, PA has really taken things to a new level in the last 12 months...

- 2 Supreme court justices were suspended and eventually resigned in shame (the 2nd one resigned just today).

- The current PA Attorney General continues to work despite a suspended law license and her facing multiple felonies. These first two things are not unrelated.

- The politicians have played tug-of-war with the budget for most of the last 9+ months, during which time schools (of all levels) and industries, along with private citizens, felt the squeeze. In some cases they were squeezed completley out of the state. Schools are now suing the government--others have spoken of potential shut downs if things don't stabilize.

PA did adopt a new tourism motto: "Pennsylvania. Pursue Your Happiness." You can imagine the snark aftermath coming from PA residents commenting on those particular stories.

How is it that expensive?  My internets is something like 20€/month. Supposedly 50mbits/s but I doubt it's actually that fast. Good enough for me though,

BTW I've been mocked over my cell phone bill.

Verizon, 5GB, unlimited everything, at 70 a month and another 20 for the phone.

So...I get scolded for being cheap having a $30 Tmo plan unlimited everything except 100 minutes talk, to getting a real cell phone plan?

Can't win.

I have been pursuing my happiness by complaining about our stupid state government and its inability to funds its schools.
God bless!

The post about John Kasich and how his religion influences his politics has been moved to Politics.

Dear God, sorry to disturb you, but... I feel that I should be heard
loud and clear!!!
We hear you, Raylight.

I know you are :)   What I meant by the post is for God to hear me loud and clear. It is from a song called Dear God (Quite anti-God song).

Why am I paying Comcast $70 a month for an internet connection that grinds to a halt every other weekend?  >:(

How is it that expensive?  My internets is something like 20€/month. Supposedly 50mbits/s but I doubt it's actually that fast. Good enough for me though,

nothing could almost certainly give you more accurate info than me, but so far as I know: 1) most of it is done through mega-corporations these days, which means slick (yet less sophisticated), over-priced (yet less functional), over-promised services; and 2) America just has (comparatively speaking) horrible internet in general. I'm supposed to get 25 Mbps for $70, but with fees and such it costs more, and as things happen in the real world the speed is less (20.6 Mbps atm)... it only really frustrates me though when it becomes essentially unusable.

Wow....

My former coworkers hated me more than i thought.


My former boss needed something from me, and so i went to log into the system (which i was told I could keep doing) and my account had vanished.

a former coworker removed it completely a mere 3 days after I left, and against management wishes.

I feel so popular now.
All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.
