    Question Is this forum dead?

    I have been following BB.com from 2008. I believe it's the biggest BB forum online. I think it was at its peak around 2010 with legend's like Serge Nubret posting here

    Now I'm back a decade later and this forum seems to be dead?
    What happened?

    Yeah he began posting about mid-2009, gave lots of good advice, and shared a lot of experience.

    Then he stopped posting for a month... And then suddenly put up this creepy post. I remember the exact words,

    "My children have poisoned me, they want to kill me and take my money. I'm in hospital. Please help!"

    That was his last post here... A few days later there was news of his death

    Some sections are busier than others. Just look at the reply dates to see what the turnover is like.

    I do believe the forum is dead compared to what it was just 5-10 years ago.
    But that's the overall feeling of forums by forum owners and the few members who still communicate through forums.

    Forums in general are dead. Tech companies have monopolised the internet. I don't remember the stats but a handful of sites soak up the vast majority of internet usage now. I remember small businesses used to make websites and chit, now they just use facebook.

    Yes, my constant posting.
    But I haven't been around since 2015 and the above was a different account.
    Forums are just DOA in the modern social media driven age.

    It might not be quite so dead were it not literally inundated with spam. Most of the sub-forums aren't worth the time it takes to wade through the spam to find actual worthwhile content.

    "Looks like they need some sheriffs," I thought. "Hey, here's a moderator application page." Look at the requirements. "Oh. Nevermind, then."

    Then I notice each sub-forum allegedly has literally dozens of moderators, already? Really? I realize these are unpaid volunteer roles, but, if they're not actually going to, you know, moderate, why are they still moderators?

    Meanwhile, when I tried to post to the "Look What I Bought Today" thread a couple photos of past and recent home gym acquisitions, I found I had to have 50 posts before I could post links to photos or any other hyperlinks.

    Srsly?

    It ain't all because of social media. I belong to a number of special-interest forums. (In one of which I am a moderator.) They get reams of daily, on-topic, useful traffic.

    They're well-run, though.
