Why is TH so dead lately? - November 1st 2017, 12:13 AM

So I've been coming here for a long time on and off. Whenever I feel like my old angsty teen self. (like, 10-11 years)

Back in the day, it was alive. Chat was full, especially at night. When you were sittin there all fucked in your emotions, mods in chat would be like feel better mmkay?

Now its just a pathetic side note at the bottom of your page. Threads that are 2 years old are on the first page of sub forums. Like legit theres no one to talk to when I'm feeling lonely as fuck. It sucks. kay done

7:55 AM [Hotard] everything is triggering

Chat has good periods and bad. We recently got through not having chat for quite some time so it's possible that people just haven't gotten used to chat being back. Also, this tends to be a time when people are busier with school and family commitments and aren't able to be on as much. I notice that chat and the site tend to be more active around summer time and around the end of the year when a large majority of people are on winter break. However, there are still a lot of users that will have differing schedules around those times as well.

The thing that can be hard about a site like th is that we get people from all over the world so even though you may be up there is likely a lot of people who aren't.

As for the forums, there are forums that are less active than others. It's likely that the forums you are seeing with threads from two years ago, are the less active ones.

It can definitely suck when th isn't busy but the longer you stick around the more you will get used to the activity levels.

Maybe there was a generation of teens that felt like they grew out of using TH? I don't know. Most of my angsty problems are either solved or solvable, so I mostly just come on here to argue about politics.
