Yes forums are ghost towns these days. I notice the ones about ghosts still
have a lot of people posting on them? I think because people are looking
for help with hauntings. But almost all other forums I used to post
on besides paid to post forums are ghosts towns now.

I guess it is because of the quality of posts and the reason of staying. Yes, connecting with other people is fun but fun plus money is much much better. Considering the cost of internet here in our country, having fun online is too costly for our own good.

Yeah,you are right,the monetization policy adopted by forumcoin keeps things ticking considering the cost of the Internet in country like ours.The forums that are dying should try to keep the interest alive among the contributors by incentivising.

I agree with you. I like going online for fun but it is so costly and therefore I choose to do it with something that benefits me. Working in the few forums I have is both enjoyable and earns me some money.

People here are so greedy, we are not talking about monetized forums here.

How can ForumCoin and other communities evolve to continue to attract people?

I don't know all of these,unfortunately and fortunately. :P

Guys if you don't want forumcoin to die you should at least make 1 discussion a day and reply other people's discussion a day and 3 of your discussions a day. We need an increase in activity here.

I am sure about that the stackexchange network (thought I don't visit all the subforums in the network)is dying.In my opinion,the focused and intellectual activity there is going strong still.

I am glad too see some of the forum re-emerging like postlook and DG. I also read that there are a couple of other paid to post forums coming up. I will be happy to see more PTP forums.
The loss of Postloop and TFW meant a loss of regular earnings to many of us. We've got to work harder to keep these forums up if we want to earn from them.
