This game has been dying a slow death. I knew that years ago but it's still surprising to me when I check in and try a new world. The new worlds and the forums overall are drastically less active than they used to be.
I am not surprised the forum are rather dead. There is simply no innovation in topics. Its the same world in and world out.
For most of the time it is a very few playing making the atmosphere uneasy, or they are making boing post about how they are the best tribe, or if they are not, how they should have been if not for the evil backstabbing victors..... Most of the old foxed have seen it all and heard it all. and for new players, it both take a while to get out here, and when you do you get you head chopped of for a refreshment question.
