    Should we all just migrate to Discord? :dumbpepe:conspiracy

    And if so, who killed it?

    NBD is not dead it still has a decent amount of active members. The activity has died down significantly but it's not dead. A dead section is like the Roleplaying section.

    What killed it is the ending of the Naruto manga\anime and posters like you who make people not even want to log on. Discord is a completely different experience from NF and will never replicate it.

    So no. No one should migrate to Disocrd.

    And,unfortunately this section will never be what it once was. It'll lose more and more members until the site gets shut down. It's only saving grace is the possibility of Boruto getting popular in the future and maybe the site name changing.

    It's sad to think about because there's alot of memories here. There's even the remnants of the members who've sadly passed away like Koko and Xiammes;may they rest in peace.

    If Naruto continued instead of ending the forum would be much more active.

    As someone said the convo thread,In the past we were able to host debating tournaments with 64 people and debate for 3 days straight. We're lucky to even get 10 people in a tournament.

    Thing is Naruto has been gone as a manga for a while and it was still pretty active.

    This section could stay alive since the community on here is pretty tight, but mods have been lately deleting all threads that bring the community together, and have been allowing strictly VS threads which just cannot work long-term because of the reasons you pointed out.

    If there was more relaxed approach from the mods and they gave us, actual active posters, more of a free hand in what threads we want on here..

    ..and mods would just instead focus on doing pro-community stuff like MotM or whatever we are asking for, then I am pretty sure it would boost up the activity, or at least slow down the process of this section dying

    So far what the mods have been doing these last 2 weeks has seriously hurt this section

    Yes. He passed in the hospital. He was a huge My Hero Academia fan. He's in heaven.

    Yeah I wouldn't say it's dead just yet, but it does look very stark. This may be it.

    I think it's slowly fading away.

    Obviously this new gen NBD was nothing like the "old days", but in the last weeks the activity has decreased noticeably even compared to few months ago.

    Wouldn't be surprised if it will be essentially death in less than a year.

    I killed it apparently. I didn’t want it to die of cancer. Instead it dies of old age.

    OK and? The source material is not active anymore. There's nothing keeping people here. New chapters and theories and discussion for characters is what kept people here. Most matchups have already been done. We're just repeating ourselves at this point. People troll,joke around,make sexual comments and spam that's what happens when there's nothing to discuss.
    The community being tight has nothing to do with it. It's just eliminated the nuisances.
    What members who are not here because of strict mods would actually be pleasant to have around in the section? Troyse22 was a known clown and caused drama in every thread. Because mods cracker down on him we're in a better place troll wise. We still do have trolls but not as bad as Troyse.

    I do agree. They've been banning members for hardly any reason, they have double standards and don't make the rules clear. I grew with you on that.

    Unfortunately. And it's just as I'm getting more leisure time and easing into the culture. Discord's definitely taken some of the members here, noticeably the lewder ones

    Well people frankly are more keen to have general convos and with the less tight system there, they get a whole lot of room to dicuss anything.

    Considering that NBD topics have become repetitive with 3T Itachi vs anywho/Jiraiya vs anywho threads permeating the NBD topics, members have got a good haven to escape to instead of sticking it out here with the rest of us

    By that part I meant that they should give us free hand in the threads we make.

    They shouldn't delete anything unless it's outright insulting or breaking the NF rules in general.

    Like they deleted fun-threads like "guess the nbd poster" or "worst statements thread" - sure, they breed toxicity, but at least that toxicity is kept there and isn't spread on the whole section.

    You're still asking the impossible though. Mods still need to delete such threads like the rules stipulate, even though deleting such threads ends up killing the NBD vibe most of the times

    Laziness on their part. Might as well leave them then if they can let them stack up with interesting discussions

    20k + posts multiple months in a row and consistently the second most active sub on the board means we’re doing fine.

    Stats tend to pop up randomly in the alley and sometimes the mods will show us stats. The section always has its downtime, 2 weeks isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things given how dead things felt last year at times or other months with low activity. The section has the tendency to come back strong and I don’t see a discord server that a lot of members are not part of being the reason the section “dies”.

    Not many interesting matches, tbh. Especially when you mostly get Turrins, Shazams and Hussains who dogmatically stick to their views despite being proved wrong several times. Maybe when Boruto (anime or manga) pick up even more, I'll post more. The anime may potentially bring some new interesting post worthy elements.
