let it die
This forum does not have natural growth. That’s the reason it Alex sold it to begin with. Unless someone wants to dump money into advertising there’s little I see that can be done. I don’t know whether it’s a branding issue, a format issue, or a content issue. I will continue posting and replying to things I find interesting regardless.
Some day I could see buying one of these things and running adverts at a loss just for shits and giggles, but that’s neither here nor there to this situation.
Well that and one other major issue, competition, ie reddit and half chan/8chan.
