I'm not really sure. I've noticed some of the busier forums have gotten a little quieter. I can't speak for Chat though because I don't usually go in there. Keep in mind that a lot of people go on and off of invisible mode, so it is likely more people are online than what actually shows.

You can find it when you click on your User CP. On the right side, go to Edit Options, and the top of that page has the invisible mode option. If you check the box and save it, you will no longer be shown as online.

Yeah I've noticed it's really quiet to. Unless every one is suddenly in the invisible mode (and it's unlikely there was a sudden exodus to doing so) then there's less people online. I've noticed it takes about 5 days before there are more than 1 or 2 posts for me to respond on most weeks.

Hey,

I have noticed it has been quiet recently. I think a lot of people come to the site for help and tend to move on once they've received the help they require. A lot of regulars are probably deciding to do the same, it's sad really.

It's because Chrome stopped using Java so everyone that use to go in chat on chrome can't anymore so many have left.

Yeah, I can't use chat anymore so that why less people are online. I still find there's plenty of threads to respond to though.

All of this is fundamentally seasonal and I am sure that after people have some time off peaks in activity from work and University, then the activity on the site will increase. However, I recommend, whenever you need help, to consider other opportunities, including Lifeline and BeyondBlue and similar services, all of which are monitored whenever they are monitored. This is sometimes 24/7.

The site certainly has quieted down when I first joined five years ago (six in November! ) and that's probably because people have grown up, got lives, and moved on. There's still a few of us around today, but most of us have other responsibilities now.

There are other web browsers that people can use to access chat, such as Safari and Firefox.

Actually I can't access chat on Safari either ^^ so there's that... I never used chat because I don't really like chat pages (you always show up and people are talking about purple grapes and unicorns and you can't possibly jump in on such a bizarre and untestable topic unless you're just there to goof off) but I could see it affecting many other users if they suddenly can't access their favourite part of the site.

I think there is also probably a lot of truth in people getting the help they need and leaving. I think users like me who stick around to try to give the advice are a minority.

It would be cool to talk to you in chat though. I used to not like chat for that reason but it gets easier the more you go in there.

And, I think it's a combination of things. I think people not being to get on with chrome has decreased chat activity (I have firefox and have no problem but I hear a few other browsers are having that issue). I think people being busy with work and school has caused some of it. It might get busier during the summer. It definitely hits peaks and sometimes it's extremely active and other times it isn't. At least, that's what I have noticed in my many years of being here.
