Do you think the MBN is dead ?

Just to see how many people really think that.

In the way people just used to talk about LBA: yes.
In the way of the never ending soap-opera that has started here: no.

That would depend on your definition of the word "dead" in terms of a forum.

That means that members post just to say "we are still here" but without real conviction.

As I said in the French Forum thread, the MBN as an LBA discussion place is sort of losing its magic.
However, the off-topic section has interesting threads sometimes.

Dead, but still walking, the MBN is a zombie.

new LBA discussions are nearly impossible, because it's an old game and almost everything has already been discussed.

But Assasin is right, what is alive is a neverending soap opera.
Now let's all wait for morshem's evil twin to show up
(or his good one, whichever would be the more likely)

You just stole my sister's joke!
(she actually said once "Mor doesn't have an evil twin, he has a nice twin!" )

But anyway, the problem is that many people only participate in off-topic discussions. When I tried to start something interesting, like the LBA novel thread, it died too soon.

idiots, this is one of the most active forums on the net -_-
You want to see zombi forums? I post on a few.
eg. The Mecenary:Espcape from Targ forum...thats 1-2 posts per week!

Good grief, if you think this is a dead forum, you have no concept of the word....

Do you think many people have fun here ? I don't think so. And i'm one of them who don't really have fun, expected when there are cool threads (which is a rare thing)

You spoiled brats have no flucking clue what a dead forum is!

If you've been there during the TTT and such, you'd know this freakin forum isn't dead.

If you think everything here is a soap opera: well go, I don't stop you.

I'm getting so flucking sick of everyone being negative about anything but not contributing anything themselves.

Finally, Yes, there aren't many LBA topics, does that mean it's dead? Does that means it's undead? No, it's the people that make the forum, the community, and whom put effort into the forum. There are countless of forum died already even when the game was newer than LBA, simply because the people didn't invest anything.

If you wish to sit down and yell how bad the forum has become, how unfun it is and how everything turned into a soap opera...well, I'll certainly won't be stopping you to leave, perhaps then the people who remain can try to get the forum on a straight path again.


</atresica, getting sick of the constand moaning about dying things and such>

Atre, please don't yell at Link; he doesn't deserve that. At least if it was me, then I would understand, but Link didn't do anything wrong.
And by the way, Atre, you don't really particiapte in LBA discussions yourself. As a non-participator, maybe you'd like to tell us why this is the case.

I quite agree. I'm too young to understand everything.
But just to say since a few month i don't have fun on this forum, and i'm not the only one.

Theres nothing wrong with not talking about LBA all the time.

There is something wrong with not talking about LBA all the time and whining that no one else is.

It's alive, but this spam nonsense is causing some members to look elsewhere when the bullshit level rises.

You've got a point there Double-J.
And there are also all these stupid fights. The location field fight was the stupidest I've witnessed since coming here. ^^

1) I'm not yelling
2) I'm not participating in LBA discussions because I'm not particulary interested, but Eh! I write fanfiction!
Ah yes, the fanfiction, always neglected by those thinking the forum is dying. Always ignored by those who believe the forum is without contend these days
Always ignored... *sigh*
3) Morshem 1) stop trying to act like a victim 2) stop being a freakin hypocrit
4) Double J, quite right
