Don't know what it is, but I'm pretty bored here.

I'm on Facebook, so I've not disappeared, but you won't see me around  much anymore.

I blame the lack of Halloween spirit  Wink

Actually, this place has become like Facebook. People seem to be more interested in sharing random thoughts and what they are doing at the moment. Personally I don't see fun in that but, whatever.

Maybe it's that we don't talk about movies as often here?  Or perhaps, sometimes people just need a break from a social group for a while - they get bored with the ebb and flow of the group's interactions.  I'll miss you, and do understand it.  Hope that you'll stop back by after discovering some new awful treasure?

I think Andrew has a point. There isn't as much discussion of movies as there used to be. Bad movies in particular. I don't know if that's because the oldtimers on the board have run out of stuff to discuss. I mean, we've covered a lot of territory over the years and it's all archived here. Newbies come in, and it's all fresh for them, but kind of repetitive for the rest of us. While it's nice to give the benefit of experience to a newbie discussion, I don't find it challenging or stimulating for me, nor do I think it's as much fun for the new guys to have some know-it-all around who's covered the same territory many times before.

The long-time members are talking about current events, current movies and a lot of off-topic stuff we have lots of opportunities to discuss elsewhere. That is, when we aren't reduced to compiling lists and playing dozens of variations of the same game. Seriously, I groan when I hit "show new replies" and a bunch of "fame or shame" threads come up. I don't know if we've exhausted the topic of bad movies, or whether maybe we just need to find some new level on which to discuss them.

I'm also finding it kind of frustrating lately that we all form some pretty good friendships on here that have never moved beyond here and probably never will.

It just feels like I've hit the limits of this board in every respect.

I'm sorry you feel that way, TrekGeezer, and I hope you'll come back after a break.

AndyC brings up some good points but I'm not sure there's a real solution.  Topics do get repetitive, so maybe its just natural that oldtimers become bored and want to move on.  The tons of newcomers don't have that issue, but one day they will see the same old topics recycling and realize they've become oldtimers too.  It's all part of the great circle of forum life.  I'm still interested, mainly because the newcomers and their personalities keep things fresh for me.  And there are still tons of movies, good and bad, that I've yet to see.

This place needs a forum chat or small shoutbox that is easy to access.
We've been meeting in chat on a regular basis for nine years at another forum. There is always fun, games, action and good conversation in chat whenever the forum gets dull and boring.
