Seriously... where the heck is everyone???

i haven't been around here as much as i used to be compared to back in the day. But after coming back the place seems as dull as dishwater??? where's all the drama? i feel like trying to get myself partially suspended on here just to make things a bit more colourful... even then, id probably offend one person, that person being a mod. lol

where are all you fun guys!?!? come back!!!

Trying to stir things up hey Cookie?!

I think things will get more perky once more stuff gets revealed about SW6... names, theming being put in, etc. And when we get more solid info rather than rumour. I think some people become frustrated by how much rumour gets bandied around with new coasters, many of them being utter ridiculous. Hence many would rather not voice an opinion as it'll just get shot down or be seen as pretentious.

That, plus so many people have been juggling end season madness with normality and illness that ATA gets swept under the carpet. Maybe.

I have noticed that posts and members being logged in has declined by a huge amount than when I signed up a few years ago. There used to be loads of posts every day, I think it's a shame really.

A lot of members who used to be regular posters are hardly ever around anymore. I guess that they probably are busy with other things. sad.gif

I am willing to turn a blind eye to poor safety regimes as long as they get the theming right. In Six Flags, we get neither.

Its like I was saying when we talked about this on msn (which kinda proves my point), a large number of the people on ATA also talk on MSN, Facebook, Twitter etc, and I think that that has meant this part of the forum at least is quieter now than it used to be.

I know what you guys mean - I know im not a regular-regular poster, but you get to hear my 2 pence worth every so often.
I dont post unless I have a point to make (Apart from this one...), whether thats due to me not wanting to clog up the forum or fear of the response for others - the 2nd shouldnt be an excuse I know, but at times I feel Im not the only one whos a bit hesitent!

You know what - AT should do something exciting to get us speculating/posting like crazy. BRING US AN SW6 STORYLINE TREASURE HUNT! Its their fault.

Bring back controversial marketing. Bring back the Ropers. Bring back Rollercoaster Tycoon!

It is quieter nowadays, but to be fair it's been like this since 2005/2006. I don't know whether there's much that can be done, the team do a great job in updating the site and keeping the forums looking fresh. I suppose it's just the fact that TTF is doing so well - before it was made in 2003 ATA was very popular, and its popularity has just declined over the years. It's a shame, because a site as good as ATA deserves to have a thriving forum like it once used to have!

I believe that it's just down to the lack of any real community on here nowdays. It's not necessarily a bad thing, there are pros and cons to being a more serious forum, but It's not what alot of people what. I've been here (on and off) for nearly ten years, and there is so much more choice than there ever use to be.

The fanbase for coaster geekdom as a whole is the largest it's ever been, and the trend seems to be towards those sites who are more community focused, e.g CF, TP Guide and TTF. Sites like ATA and Rideas who aim to be more grown up have suffered in terms of membership and activity.

I think the change is here to stay, and us oldies we'll just have to adapt to a slower pace of life. tongue.gif

"Well chaps its about high time we do something exciting!"
Raid on TTF? I recall that was quite fun a few years ago. Got me a temp ban though.

Ultimate forum member. At the very least he brought everyone together for reasons those who were on the forum at the time will completely understand...

I don't think it was ever that bad, and I'd rather have some pretty daft/pointless/immature topics than none at all.

I don't really care what a lot of people think. i have had many arguments on here, and I've come to realise that people are far different behind a computer or keyboard than in real life. I used to hate John Thorp for example. However I find him hilarious in real life.

Amongst other things, like trying to run a house, do a full time uni course, plus placement work, plus bank work. (That's just my reasons for less activity). The majority of posts are either really crap, and about nothing meaningful of full blown attacks on one user. See really you've actually succeeded tongue.gif

Plus I catch up with most ATAers I know and can stand on facebook too. Oh and at NY's tongue.gif That's true geekdom that is, where are you at NY's? Not at Gem's House at ATH no doubt!! tongue.gif *laughs and points, you know who you are!
