Someone is going to have to wake up the owner at some point to make that happen.

The owner will wake up when the numbers in his bank account gets close to zero. LOL.

Sometimes we just have to hit rock bottom before we realize that there is a problem. But that day won't be for quite some time yet. When you consider that there are 15,000 members, if just half of them pay for premium then that is 187,500 a year. I don't know about anyone else but I could live comfortably on that.

That figure does not include those cheats who buy back their accounts or pay for multiple accounts.
:lol:

When did you guys stop caring about that the site is declining?
Must've been about a year ago for me. I'm surprised it's still here to be honest.

One thing I did notice when I came back is that none of the old gang from the forums (well, maybe a few) are here anymore. They still play but seems like something happened that killed their spirit or something. Sad, really.

The "old gang" is never quite the same. A lot of that is perception. Ever notice how small the place is when you go back to see an old school you went to? Something old is never new again.

There's new gangs forming all the time, but of course they're "just not the same."

Gee, I wonder what killed their spirit.....vindictive perma-bans may have something to do with it.

Dukasaur, I didn't mean to say that a lot of my old favourites weren't still here, just that something quieted a lot of people who still play but are not nearly as active. It wasn't meant to offend anyone.

Edit: "Well at least old Dukasaur is still here!" (hope that suffices as a peace pipe) :mrgreen:

There is a such a thing as a psychological effect...if people see a decline in numbers then no doubt it will lead to it occuring.
It is possible to talk something up also, so let's get on with it.
How about something happy. :)


Well, Mr cairns, I wrote you a nice friendly pm saying "hi" after leaving cc for over a year and I didn't get a reply. What kind of psychological effect does this have on me, hmm? ;) It's a fine "how do you do". What better way to say: Bahh Humbug!

Don't worry, I wasn't offended...:)

I was just trying to point out that it's part of "You Can't Get Home Again" Syndrome. Nothing seems as good the second time around, even if objectively speaking it hasn't changed much.

Now, there is an objective decline in activity on CC, that is undeniable. Membership is down something like 35 or 40% from its peak, and that's a big drop, no doubt about it. So that translates into less activity everywhere: there's fewer tournaments and they take longer to fill, there's fewer posts in the forums, there's fewer people to volunteer for stuff and in general there is less of everything. It's a real and serious problem, and I'm not discounting it. What I was trying to say, however, is that as bad as it is, people are viewing it through "YCGHA" Syndrome eyes, and bad as it is objectively, people are subjectively seeing it as even worse.

YCGHA is I take it similar to "the grass is greener somewhere else" attitude, only more of a "back in the good old days" look?




yeah, forget it, I'm going to go poke deadbeats with sharp sticks...
