Default Why So Little Posting On These Forums?

Don't know if this is the right section but anyway.


It seems like for many sections dedicated to old TV shows you'll find posts on the front pages that are 5 years old or more.


In some cases if a show lasted 1 or 2 years there's probably not much to say but even those that lasted longer can be the same way.

Maybe not all but the one's I've looked over.

So why is this?

It's not just older shows that have little or no discussion. The subforums for many current or recent shows hold thread after thread that are nothing but initial posts containing a link but no comment, with no subsequent replies. Occasionally a link with no comment will be posted in reply to the link with no comment, leaving one to wonder if it's being done by humans.

Message boards in general have fallen severely in popularity over the last decade thanks to competing social media sites like facebook.

Facebook seems to be in the early stages of decline itself, and hopefully people will take that opportunity to rediscover message boards. Personally, I've always found forums like this a superior form of internet discussion.

I really hope things trend the other way at some point. Certain so-called social media sites are nothing but a cesspool, and probably drive a large number of people away.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Facebook used to be a site where people would post varying pictures of interest to their friends. I think they're strayed far from that idea, too. All this, just my opinion.

While I might understand why it may stop new people from joining forums like these I can't see why it would drive away existing members especially a good one and moderated well.

Facebook has hurt message boards, for sure.

I'll log on and check the new posts and almost 95% of the posts are from the game threads.

The traffic hasn't slowed down necessarily, but people seem to not post as much about classic television as they use to

I wonder why?


Even on the old IMDB boards there was limited traffic for Classic TV.

The games are the most popular threads in the classic shows.

If you look at the current sitcoms there isn't much posting at all. Probably because there aren't many popular current sitcoms.

I think there are way too many subforums on this site.

I should be able to click Message Boards -> Current Sitcoms, and then see all the threads for current sitcoms in one place. I'll more likely view threads of sitcoms I didn't know much about but are getting actively discussed.

The same type of grouping can be done for the other decades. Instead, each sitcom has it's own forum which is too unwieldy.

Same with some of the other boards such as 2000's Sitcoms and the 2010's Sitcoms board.
