2019 was one of the lowest performing years for Tango's forums
« on: December 08, 2019, 04:54:08 pm »
As 2019 wraps up, it marks one of the lowest performance years (in terms of activity on the forums) in Tangos history.

As displayed by the statistics HERE, you can see the extreme drop off in activity throughout 2018-2019


2014 : 28,153 posts
2015 : 82,055 posts
2016 : 137,701 posts
2017 : 120,382 posts
2018 : 95,437 posts
2019 : 43,306 posts


As someone who is primarily active through the forums these days, this kinda spooked me. Why do you all think that forum performance/activity is dropping so greatly? What do you think can be done to fix it?

A lot of people who made fun and active forums posts just aren’t around anymore. Not a lot of posts that everyone can contribute to no matter what they play or who they are

I think there's been quite a big move to Discord & lack of engaging topics.
Obviously I don't mean to criticise anyone who posts at all, I appreciate all posts whether they hurt my brain to read or not. But not many get people talking or causing a conversation on the forums? Not all topics are inclusive to a large number of people. So a lot of them do flop.

& by the move to discord, I mean people have a new platform to communicate and ask questions, so a lot of the simple questions that may have been asked on the forums before can be doing with a simple @ on Discord now.

Also 2018 was S.dot's prime shitposting year, wasn't it? Him flat-lining his presence could also be a contributing factor. The man has 10k posts, that's a big chunk.
Any S.dot v2's out there?

I just thought of a thread idea w/ this so yeet. :>

I think with some of the new shitposters that started being active late 2019, going into 2020 Tango posting will be so massive it will crash the whole fucking internet



honestly though i agree that discord is probably it

As someone who has only been here since 2017, even I have noticed a drop off in activity. In my personal opinion, I really don't think its anyone's fault. We have an amazing group of staff members, and some of the best coders I can think of. Ultimately, I think it's the lack of interest for our servers/ the games we offer in general. Tango is really huge on things like CSGO, and I can't seem to find a better JB server out there! But, with CSGO being such an old game, less and less people keep playing it, and it slowly falls out of relevancy. This causes all the big CSGO communities to naturally decline over time, which is one of the best reason I believe we should focus a lot of our attention into games like Minecraft.

Minecraft has a HUGE player base, and is constantly racking up money and different kinds of entertainment to the younger and older generations. There are so many different kinds of servers to choose from, and the updates to each add so much for the community servers to work with. I feel like if Tango got into Minecraft, and focused a lot of its attention into it, then we would see a huge increase in activity around the forums.




Btw, @inject I asked Mr. Sdot his thoughts on this post, since he was the most actively posting member, and this is what he had to say:

Discord was released in 2015, as the entire internet has shifted towards discord over the last few years that's a major contributing factor.

In addition, we've lost quite a few active posters due to:
1. them getting older and leaving gaming
2. them leaving for stupid reasons
3. them being removed for stupid actions
4. general dis-interest over time

Other major forums either ban discord entirely due to the adverse effect on the forum, or they have also suffered the same. Discord will be our primary communication as time goes on most likely, as it simply is dominating.

Also shit like what just happened in @SouthWind66 ™'s post contributes to it, instead of a long time 10k poster coming to leave his opinion on the thread he had to do it through discord, takes from activity. Just is what it is, we'll continue to work on plans/updates/changes to the community for future and continue to adjust accordingly.

@balon the real problem with tango now is that this guy named punnie is in tango >:(.
Also our player base on our game servers have mostly not been effected by time, I believe it’s just our advertising as you can see in previous years of the Promotion and Demotion we had a lot more players join in constantly. Without that flux of players our post count has gone down because of it. In 2019 a lot of programs have been shut down etc. Keep in mind .CL was shut down and this program was our main program to having new players on the forums. (sorry for any typos on my phone)

Forums are zzz now. It’s not fun to post on them.

Why would anyone want to get warned for the million reasons the forums have, when they can just go do whatever in discord? Forum rules just need a overhaul to be more lenient.

@balon

Don't go and blame Sdot or myself for being one of the reason's forum activity has fallen. I asked Sdot his opinions on a topic, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I knew he wouldn't make a post about it, so I asked him about it so I could on his behalf. It's not Sdot's job to make sure the forums thrive 24/7, and it sure as hell not my fault for bringing something he said to add on to my thoughts.

I left my opinion on this topic, and it surprises me that out of everything you could've taken from what I said, you choose to focus on Sdot. I explained various things that I think will help the forums in the future, such as our future of pushing out Minecraft Server(s), and we could've had a discussion about that.


To add on to my previous post as well, I actually do agree with what balon said regarding Discord. Discord is playing a huge part in communication throughout Tango, and even registered members go towards that rather than the forums itself. It's much quicker to get ideas across multiple members/ staff, and is much more familiar to many new members that come into Tango.
