    Where did it go wrong ?

    I have always been lurking this site for year reading one piece chapters. For me this was the first place that opened me to one piece. I remember there was huge activity.

    One piece has a huge fan following how come this place suddenly became void.

    I know you guys will lock this thread but hard facts are hard how did the place qhich had such good activity suddenly stopped.

    The site got reset twice for various reasons which hit it hard. And I think search engines hate it now for some reason, not as easy to find on Google

    I'm pretty sure the google bots caused problems and were thus turned off. However that is very, very old news so I might be wrong.

    But yes, the two times the forum was offline and reset (to an extent) certainly didn't help. The other hard truth is that the classical internet forum is not really the state of the art anymore. Social media, chatroom servers such as discord, and youtube-nerds with their comment sections of all things have long since taken over as the primary places to discuss the things forums were used for.

    Adding on to what Matt said, I feel that most of us were a lot more free, and life just caught up with us. I got work and family sapping away my time. Some of the others might have college. And there haven't been a lot of new people to get traffic.

    And the crash hit bad.

    A lot of reasons

    1. Forums in general are kind of dying
    2. Two resets
    3. One Piece isn't really as big as it should be
    4. All the original old school dudes kind of fucked off and left

    All this could change tho. We just need @ShichiDrewKai and @N o i r to do a sexy calendar for all new members.

    A lot of what people have brought up.

    It's a lot of technical stuff I don't know about, but we're not among the first results when searching for One Piece forums. The resets, especially the big one, aka the Void Century, was hard to come back from. The site never truly recovered from that, but it still held up well.

    Forums are a dying breed of communication, as mentioned.

    And people have gotten older, as also mentioned. When I joined OPB, I was 22. I didn't do shit. Now I'm 27 and in school, and I'm busy a lot. Many others were in their late teens, and they're now entering work life.

    But the activity has some spikes from time to time. It's just people can't be bothered to post when no one else posts. Once people do decide to post, you'll see more will join in on the discussion.

    People like you are the main reason as you ppl just lurk and say it in a manner as if lurking is the "new thing". You know what i mean. I mean just look at you, 5 years on this forum and hardly 31 posts? Do you even read Onepiece chapters? If you did then you will feel like sharing many things on Chapter discussion threads.

    And also what others have said. ;

    The last time OPB had such a massive hit in activity was when supermarkets got integrated bakeries. We just couldn't keep up anymore...

    Honestly, forums are dying..slowly and painfully.
    Fear is like fire.
    If you can control it, it can cook for you, it can heat your house.
    If you can't control it, it will burn everything and destroy you.
    Fear is your best friend or your worst enemy.
