Big Dumb Guy
I got pissed off after seeing yet another person say "lulz RMXP.org is dead". King Pancake of Dickfest, or something like that. Anyway.

I thought I'd actually go somewhere other than NFG for once (shock horror) and find out about this site that's apparently dead.

1. Project Forums
One argument is that nobody is even using RMXP/VX any more.

Early Project Discussion
The last post on page one of EPD is from eleven days ago. This forum is so busy nowadays that there are three people moderating it.

Completed Games
Ignoring the fact that the website never used to even have a completed games forum, this board is getting a lot of usage. Before, completed games used to be a rarity. Now look at them. Master of the Wind, Quintessence, even the low rated (on this forum) but apparently highly played games by LizardLucas, to name but a few.

Recruitment and Classifieds
Hell, the last post of page one here was just ten days ago.

Project Discussion as a whole
The main board I mean. Games that aren't early, but aren't released yet. We have... on page one only, six projects with 6 or more pages. (Those are Dreamland, Vengeance Online RPG, Last Man's Stand, The Mirror Lied (a completed game btw), Final Fantasy IV VX, and Final Fantasy VI SDK. For me, ever post has the li'l "new" symbol next to it. Last post on page one? Six days ago.

2. Resources
Another argument is that people just aren't making resources any more.

Last post on page one of resources: 4 days ago.

As I post this:

Quote:
Wyatt, brandonrichard, catkitten, Jackpumpkinhead and 17 guests are viewing this board.


Scripts is pretty much the same situation, but with excellent releases by scripters such as Dargor.

Quote:
Wyatt, lucablight08, Evilpacman123, challudym, AlexLakis, hypnotoadtrance, TheSlash, vlad, Shadow Lord, sherman, GameRage, Pacmanghost, dragontear, jabunx (+ 1 Hidden) and 9 guests are viewing this board.


3. Yeah yeah, but what about general discussion? Nobody even goes there any more.
Maybe you just got exiled and are pissed off at GD?

Post what is on your mind at this time
RMXP.org's most active topic ever. It is about to reach 4,000 views, and nearing 150 posts.

4. People aren't posting any origional content, just replying to other people.
Let's look at the stats:


Wyatt 290
missingno 257
sixtyandaquarter 182
Venetia 179
kaze950 178
brainstorm 158
Atemu 141
jbrist 124
TREG 120
Xilef 116

Top thread starters. Add together just these ten, and that's getting on for 2,000 individual threads. That's nothing though - look at the overall stats. There are 27702 on the forum at this moment. There are also 330640 posts. That's an average of 12 posts per thread.

5. But... everybody's leaving!!!!!
New members:

December 2007: 861
January 2008: 1096
February 2008: 967
March 2008: 1388
April 2008: 1285
May 2008: 1268
June 2008: 1166

Not counting June as it's only part way through

Er yeah... dying. Sure.

6. But surely the post count is going down, nobody's posting any more.

June 2008 22761
May 2008 19474
April 2008 19479
March 2008 20362
February 2008 19832
January 2008 26663
December 2007 18525

See that? It's going up.

7. Most online
...we see a similar thing:

July 2008    488
June 2008 431
May 2008 407
April 2008 521
March 2008 417
February 2008 210
January 2008 227
December 2007 228

Most online ever: 521 different people.

8. Average posts per day

On average, 710 posts are made here every 24 hours.

59 topics are created every 24 hours.

38 new members discover .org and decide to join every 24 hours.

Average online per day: 255.

We have 28862 members...

9. But if the forums aren't dying, why aren't there many sponsors?

There are currently 77 sponsors of RMXP.org. (Thanks Des, my math(s) suchs)

In addition, 8 people have paid the full $30 and got private subforums. (And nobody thought they'd take off!)



10. So in conclusion...

If you think that RMXP.org is dying, you seriously need your fucking head checked in.

Yes I got bored. Yes this post is meaningless. But if this post makes one person get a reality check and realise RMXP.ORG IS NOT FUCKING DYING then my work here is done.

I didn't know I made that many threads O_o

And yeah, I don't really see how the website is dying. There's always some interesting project (well usually) in either PD or EPD, and people are pretty active in the social (non rpg making) boards.

I'm guessing if it has chan in the name it's just a ripoff of 4chan, thus making it worse than the origional.

A little 'pot calling the kettle black' there, don't you think?

Eh, the forum's not dying by any means; but my threads are ignored more often than not, so I reserve the right to be disgruntled and whiny.

I only see the term 'faggotry' really used on 4Chan, and much less so anywhere else, so it seemed a little ironic in it being used to bash the site that uses it the most.

As for your list of reasons, I don't believe it fills any of those issues (Unless project discussion counts as BAW).

What? The word faggot is like the most common word used on these forums; faggotry is just a minor alteration.

If that is the case, then you spend too much time on 4chan.

The irony was intended.

I'd say the most common word is "the"

Also - Arbiter have you never heard that expression? Quite surprised considering you live so close to me. The version my grandparents use is "pot calling kettle sutty bum" :x

Really? Strange, I've always thought it a common expression.

You know, when I said RMXP.org died, I didn't mean it went unactive. What I meant is that it is generally looked down upon by other forums. Plus I meant it mostly as a joke.

It still made you look like you were looking down on the forum, and as usual, made you look like an idiot.  Your avatar is well deserving.  This goes without saying, but your joke failed.  Miserably.
