    It seems that there just isn't that many posts anymore or maybe its just because Im less interested in what is being discussed since Im not buying or selling pins anymore.

    People outdoors more?

    #3 11 months ago

    It seems like when I look a the posts they are mostly game specific, "members only" post, that do not interest me. So no reason to comment on a game I know nothing about.

    I look at what's for sale, but anymore, if I find something I want to buy, the seller does not respond back for whatever reason so I move on. Not sure what's up with that.

    At least this is true for me. Now that the weather is finally turning around I don't play much pinball during the day anymore.

    #5 11 months ago

    Some topics being rehashed over & over but I find myself always checking in

    #6 11 months ago

    Facebook groups...

    #7 11 months ago

    Looking at today's stats, it's actually *higher* than usual.

    Winter is basically over, so the number of casual discussion threads, debate threads, and "what's coming next" threads are lower. But, the activity in the tech sub-forums and this year's event threads are pretty active with show season upon us.

    I have seen more games listed in the past week in my area than pretty much all winter.

    I've been a member for nearly 9 years but hardly post. I'm one of those lurker types. But I do visit almost daily.

    Busy time of year for the whistlin bungholes, spleen splitters, whiskey biscuits, honky lighters, husker do's, husker don'ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers with or without the stick, and the whistlin kitty chasers amirite?

    There are only so many Game A vs. Game B, Price Check, Pin Pricing, Clubs, Best/Worst, etc. threads that one can post in before it gets a little stale. I like reading the restoration threads, event threads, and the lounge topics -- a lot of variety there but definitely less dominant on the forum.

    And yes, it is nicer outside too. I usually check in after dark or over lunch break daily.

    #11 11 months ago

    It's been 4 hours since a post in the Pinfest thread
    ?

    #12 11 months ago

    O-din's not here today?

    #13 11 months ago

    Everybody’s busy playing Iron Maiden.

    #14 11 months ago

    I'm busy prepping for a show. In fact, I shouldn't even be on the interwebs right now. Still lots to do!

    #15 11 months ago

    The Let's See Game Rooms thread is always good.

    #16 11 months ago
    #17 11 months ago

    Go check out RGP for a while. You'll feel much better about the level of action here.

    I was wondering if the posting was the same but confined to fewer more active threads; such as Iron Maiden?
    Just a thoyght

    #19 11 months ago

    I haven’t noticed a decline.

    #20 11 months ago

    I WILL SAVE YOU PINSIDE.......

    OOPSY, no I will not but I hope it's more interesting with me then without me.

    Personally have 3 years of news and drama to sift through trying to find out all I missed. I did not visit the site once in 3 years, and that is not the case the last few weeks.

    Which Facebooks groups are the bomb? I am in a few already and they seem mainly dead.

    #21 11 months ago

    Light traffic on Pinside? Idk, if you take away the 250K comments about Maiden that only leaves one dude selling an imamaculated Baywatch.

    #22 11 months ago

    i think the vegan and cutting your own grass threads are really busy right now.

    Just trying to do my part. Its not all pinball !

    #24 11 months ago

    654 people on now...doesn't seem light to me.

    #25 11 months ago

    Maybe we have a lot of happy members playing IMDN.

    Just played it @ The coin jam in Salem Oregon.
    First impression - fun pin!

    #27 11 months ago

    Are you claiming Pinside is dying, or just a seasonal trend?

    #29 11 months ago

    agreed with Facebook pinball groups being dead. I can’t figure out how people sells pins on Facebook, I certainly don’t see it

    #31 11 months ago

    Seasonal. I've got outdoor projects in the works, all of my pins are working, and not buying or selling for the summer. I'll still pop on here looking for interesting threads or to help solve repair puzzles.

    #32 11 months ago

    Between the nice weather and seeing the same ten people post the same shit over and over, I’m on here less frequently.

    #33 11 months ago

    Also with cgc delayed, potc almost shipping, the usual.buzz for those games is less.

    #34 11 months ago

    I have decided to stop posting new topics all together.

    everyone has gone outdoors to find some shrooms

    #37 11 months ago

    I check in every day to see what's new and to learn, but I am relatively quiet about it. My new interest in Ham radio has been taking more of my spare time.

    OK.

    #39 11 months ago

    Posting always slows down just before the bubble bursts.

    yeah, what a waste of a pinball forum topic.

    #41 11 months ago

    Everybody had to stop to reload.

    LTG : )

    #42 11 months ago

    Just being honest. When I posted something like I did today, and some pinsiders make comments that my posts are not relevant or contribute to the site because I am somewhat new to the site, I figure...screw it why waste my time.

    I guess I am just not good with social media. I'll still come here and look around and make a comment or two but that's it.

    I for one wish you would make a comment or three or four.

    If your comment is off topic, mark it as such. Otherwise all comments, including yours are relevant.

    I'll go take it out on my Flash Gordon. Still haven't been able to beat the high score from the previous owner

    Quoted from RCA1:

    O-din's not here today?

    Noone that grew up as a free person in a free country with free speech really wants to spend too much time hanging out in what's turned into fascist state.

    You are only missing the many posts that have been selectively deleted and vanished into thin air like so many other farts in the wind.

    #48 11 months ago

    Too many people are making this site unbearable...cough cough whysnow cough cough...

    Time to finally have that purge we were promised.

    Nobody comes here anymore, it's too crowded.
