      Kametsu wasn't that big before that download stuff. A lot of traffic came here because of the download section. But some core people also left when the download people were departing.

      @sniper23 honestly that isn't accurate. Firstly you joined nearly 6 years after downloads were added, so you weren't actually around for what it was like prior.

       

      Kametsu was quite a bit more active BEFORE the downloads. But this could largely be in part to just how much bigger message boards were back then prior to things like social media and reddit.

       

      Back in 2007, we were getting 2-5 thousand new posts per day and every discussion thread was actively posted in. Once downloads were added, it took away from discussions and eventually discussion died out almost completely. In the prime time of the downloads existing, we averaged around 500 to 700 posts per day. A far cry from upwards of 5,000 peak per day wouldn't you say.

       

      Put it this way, the entire download section only amounted to roughly 25-30% of the forums entire post count. As evidenced by what the numbers dropped from (around 650,000) and landed on after those sections were deleted (495,000). So that in itself should speak volumes about how much more activity there once were in discussions in that the download section never even came close to catching up.

       

      Sure, we had more guests and one-time posters visiting because of the downloads, so our viewer count was higher.... but the actual activity of the board was ALWAYS lower since the addition of the downloads and continued to drop.

       

      This was why I felt removing the downloads wouldn't have had the impact it did. So yeah, I was wrong in that regard, and it hurt quite a lot to accept that fact. But I guess it's true that community forums as a whole are dying off entirely to begin with.

       

      Pretty much every discussion forum I've been a member in for years is having issues with participation in discussions dying out. Hell animebytes even has trouble with only 5-10 users actively discussing things on their forum... and yet their tracker itself is mostly thriving.

      Active and big is something different. I was aware of Kametsu and of course, Cartoon World (C-W) before that but I was mostly at Animesuperhero.com, Exiled-destiny(rip), Anime-Supreme. Download section made the user base bigger but make the users less active. But I don't think this is the real cause. The Social Media cancer what killed the most of the forums. Social media reduced the quality of internet discussions, user quality and bring a lot of quality issues to the internet. This was especially felt after 2008. Also, a lot new stuff came like Reddit, Discord, Facebook Pages etc. The discussions are usually moved to there. 

       

      The download section can be opened again and it might bring some users, well mostly for downloads. Might catch some people for discussions though. 

       

      I was trying to get in Animebytes, people are mostly there for torrents so forums activity is not surprising. In the end, there isn't much people for discussions but you can find many people for downloads. That's only increase bandwidth usage though.

       

      Hard to believe though. All of that stuff was years ago. Exiled-destiny, Anime-supreme, Cartoon-World, Kametsu, WatchCartoonOnline, all that stuff. I was using Cartoon-World back in 2005 but not to Kametsu. Thanks to C-W, I watched lots of stuff that I couldn't watch even though If I wanted to buy it, because of license drama. But, in the end, I've switched to WatchCartoonOnline back in 2007 and still using it.

  6. I think its still a bit early to pass judgement on the show especially if Toriyama is following the formula for dragon ball instead of dragon ball. personally i was always a bigger fan of the original dragon ball since Z jumped the shark with the Freeza arc. though personals i think a whole show could have been passed on Gohan the way he was in high school. Some ting i looking forward to finding out is if Uub will be reintroduced, also finding out more about the Kai's. based on some of what i have read this arc will revolve heavily around the Kia on higher level the the Kabito Kai/ Suprem Kai. Besides i be thoroughly disappointed if this series turns out to be an other GT ( which even Mr. Toriyama him self has on many occasions said he did not want to be associated with)
  7. Any one else remember the world before the proliferation of PC's. when they internet was dial up and the only place to access a computer where at school or eh public library. Share your thoughts
  8. For me i was 10 when I woke at 4 am one day and saw dark stalkers and dragon ball on TV. and i was like " these are not cartoons what is this, it would be about an other year before i found out they were anime , back in 1994 computer and the internet were not so readily available.
  9. i have thought about it quite a bit over the years but ultamitly i come cometo the conclusion, if i kill my self it means i gave up. i just cant give up it not in me so i stay alive out of spite against the universe.
  10. Broiled chicken leg and thigh with a broild potato
  11. i have rather unique accent , i grew up in south east Asia but attended what is called an English medium school ( this basically a school that go from K-G to 9th grade) all the teachers were British educated or South African educated and proper pronunciation was very strictly enforced. However i moved to the eastern United States when i was a 8 so , i have evolved an accent which Americans thing sound kind of British and the British think sounds kind of American. realistically i think its just that i speak far to properly for American and not properly enough for British XD
  12. liked history class except when it was American history, loved science Hated math gym music
