It must be getting on for a year now since Sandman acquired Admin Extra, and tried to make it more popular by offering Premium Membership across Zone and Extra for posts on Admin Extra. At the time Admin Zone was running VB, and Admin Extra was running XF, and it was a failing Admin forum, not long after this the announcement was made that AZ would be migrating to XF, then later AE closed, coincidence mmm. Now almost a year on, this place is at times quieter than Monastery, today in three hours there have only been six new posts, since midnight UK time about 18, thats hardly a busy Admin forum. While this forum was running what is still the most popular forum software it was a lot busier, so what's happened to make it so quiet. It can't be the change in software.... can it ? after most of those using it before were if I remember right VB users. Or could it be that all this VB bashing on here has alienated the greater number of members ? It's probably the sum of all parts, the software, the change, and the bashing you get if you dare mention you like VB. What has happened to posters like Poet JC who used to be on here most of the day ? and others like her, the MOD team has also changed from then, it seems as though all the changes haven't all been for the good. I would suggest that if anyone wants a lesson in how to kill a forum, they look at the history of this one.
