What Happened To This Place... It's So Dead Now
« on: January 08, 2013, 07:31:00 PM »

I used to browse this site all the time ever since the Xbox 1 days... it used to be THE place to go for Xbox modding info, discussion, news, etc. But now it's like everyone just up and left for other sites. Most forums are dead except for the Newbie sections, and even then it's like you only see maybe 10 posts per day.

I'm not complaining (well, maybe I am), but I'm just curious as to why this is... The news on the front page doesn't even update that often anymore. This really makes me sad, because this was the one place where if you had a question, you could just search the forums and you would find someone talking about the exact same thing and how to solve it.

People come and go.
Real life becomes your biggest priority as you get older.
Sometimes people just don't come back to the scene. sad.gif

It's up to those who are still left (and active) to keep things interesting smile.gif

Those are two threads about the main page, I'm not talking about that specifically. You honestly don't remember a time when there was maybe.. 10-20 times the amount of people on the forums as there is now?

I remember those days. As stated, people change.


I think a lot of people are looking at other sites for help with their modding. This is due to different mods and chips making their own sites now and drawing people there for help. I have a Maximus Lizard and when I need something for it, I go to their site.

I try to get on here 4-5 times a week to put the spammers in the garbage bin and help with any problems people may have.

Blame Twitter and Facebook....

I am still here, posting news when I can in my freetime.

Oh'tho I noticed that when I do post news there is more replies on the Facebook Scenyz page for that certain topic then in the forums....

Very sad...

Yeah we do:

https://www.facebook.com/scenyx

The only problem is recently the PermaLink connections to the main news item is broken, so all links from Facebook to here display just CGI Error.

It was working last month, but when this site as usual went down after June 9 just before E3 and didn't get restored until just after E3, the PermaLink system seems to be now fucked up.

Oh'well

is RDC about? I don't seem to see him much, might be just me tbh. Its a lovely site with great people but I think like all things, xboxes have hitten a peak and not many people mod them or the modding isn't at a rise anymore like it used to be.

Then again, i'm talking about myself and have only ever been on this forum regarding xboxes.


I am sure I noticed him on the active users earlier today.
