Yes, I'll go through this thread when I have time to relive the memories :')! I'll share the best bits in the new thread. Remember also that this is where I met you!

The guy who left in the video said "I had fun though", but you are not going anywhere! Right??? We just make a new thread and nothing will change. I am not planning to retire as long as people give positive feedback like above on this page!

You probably didn't mean it that way, but ironically, saying nothing will change is actually a part of the problem: if nothing changes, it means the decline in activity is going to continue, or at the very least isn't going to improve. Imagine an xy-axis graph, with x-axis being the time displayed since the beginning of this service to the present, and y-axis being the combined activity (# of active bumpers, % of bumps made per week, % of active thread owners). If you were to draw a line that shows the combined activity over time, it'd show a continuous decline in the long term.

While the # of bumped threads grew significantly of all things, it wasn't really a sign of activity, but rather a result of thread owners being allowed to leave their thread in our hands to maintain, giving them the option to go inactive without consequence.

I can imagine it being fine if I just bumped less often and expected less, but you know...

Anyhow, first 30 covered.

I meant I don't consider anything changed because of the new thread. It's just a necessary procedure because of the cap of 2000 posts. Otherwise we could have kept using the old thread. New year will be a more special moment again, and as usual, I will post an annual report of the year 2018.

Anyway, I am listening to feedback at all times. I understand the activity is not at the best at the moment, but we are still helping people and I can still see a point in doing this. Even if there was only 1 customer, I would still help them. Wouldn't you?

It really depends on more variables; e.g. if it's a G&A thread and the person hasn't posted on the forums for over a year, probably not. But if they were active then probably yeah.

Let me know if I can do something, but last time when Wildcat helped to sweep inactive threads you weren't too happy about it either. But I don't think retiring is the right thing to do.

Cheers!

So on land it's just detecting the mines but not removal?

Yeah! :D In more detail, clear everything on the mine field but leave the mines untouched!
