>anon's just don't want to read posts with paragraphs and don't want to make threads as that requires posting a paragraph
That's definitely part of it. Since this place is slow and the topics are niche, most people seem to want to make more well informed and detailed posts as opposed to bait (which is a good thing)
>perhaps we don't have enough frequent users yet
Also part of it, though I think it's been better recently. Maybe we need a more coordinated campaign if we want serious growth.
I think the main thing is that most of the users don't use the alternative/more instant forms of chat on here. The IRC is dead most of the time, and I can't really blame people for not using it since at the end of the day it's pretty niche for most these days, and other chat services would probably be unpopular with most of the users on here. I also still have to fix up the game servers which would be another potential form of communication. Additionally I'd like to run more community events like streams but I have been very busy with school and other activities so they won't be very frequent during the fall, at least ones run by me directly. Maybe others can step in and organize something?
