We all know that OT isn't exactly bustling with activity these days. However, the subforums are even more dead than OT is. The sports forum hasn't had a new post in over 6 months, MMT has only had 8 topics posted in this year (one of which being the What are you listening to thread that is pretty much being kept alive singlehandedly by Dax), and the video games forum only has about 10. However, from our posts in the today thread, none of these topics are uncommon interests for the regulars here, but nobody wants to bother going to these subforums to post about these topics because nobody would read them there (as we just saw with the Pokemon Go thread that got moved to Video games and consoles).

 

I feel like at this point it's extremely unlikely that these forums ever have a rise in activity, and I think it would be more beneficial to either archive the subforums and just forward new posts on these topics into OT or just merge these forums into OT altogether. I think that not splitting these off into other forums would encourage more conversations to happen than our one semi-active Today thread and would possibly get the few stragglers left on these subforums to be a little more active with us as well.

 

What do you all think?

I agree. It made sense to separate them when they were originally separated, and it makes sense to merge them now.

I agree. T&C could probably be merged too, it's extremely dead.

I've brought this up to the rest of the team for discussion.

 

And just FYI: the moderating team  ;) Yes, Tripsis and Randox are still admins, perhaps not as active as they once were but the forums aren't as active as they once were either.
