Active TVF Members, or Lack Of?

Recommended Posts

It's kinda curious to me how many active members of TVF actually exist.

 

I know it's impossible to permanently delete your account, presumably for advertisement sales purposes.

 

That being said, there seems to have been, at least anecdotally a tail off in member posts, especially the dearth of long time posters. 

 

Are we seeing a fundamental shift in TVF, or the expat community in general?

Judging by the same old threads being recycled for weeks I think shows a downturn

And the same 20 or so hard core members appear to be driving the posts on every new topic

Tried to avoid joining for many years and know 10 year expats who don't even lurk for obvious reasons . Your point being?

The hard core guys do "most ' of the driving, obviously not all of it

I also see an increasing trend towards displaying threads that are years old.

 

Is this clickbait to try to drive posts?

 

Certainly I never used to see this before, which again sorta reinforces my belief that something is afoot

Quality of posters, less quantity.

Still haven't achieved such a quest.

There used to be an abundance of aggressive, soured trolls spoiling threads....By and large they seemed to go away after the corporate reshuffle.....

Sometimes they were unwittingly comical & definitely kept the pot stirred.....

The bulk of thread quality went up and the annoyances either left/went away/were culled.....

It's been a quieter place, but better without the cancerous in your face arseh#les.....

POTY's been a quiet, hasn't it?

 

It's in the Pub this year.  I think in General, posts are a bit more lively and vituperative

I don't want to rain on your parade but your precipitation will be your downfall.

I hope you will not precipitate precipitously.

I think it happens when people use the search function. And then they add a comment maybe to a thread which is years old. And then that thread shows on top of the list again and maybe other people answer.

Judging from his post, it seems the percentage of alcohol in the present precipitation at transam's abode is rather high.

It could be a song title- too pissst to post
