    Talking The Forums: RIP.

    Today has quite honestly been the most dead I've ever seen the forums. When the boards go an hour or two between posts you know it's bad.

    Oh I'm chill, it's just crazy to me how little activity there has been...

    but that is also because I forgot it was American Thanksgiving today

    Yeah I noticed the same. Every time I've checked back in my User CP has shrunk. Checked in an hour ago and I had no active threads. Depressing. It doesn't get this bad in mid-August.

    You're right bondon this place has just been slow and for good reason. I know the staff here continue to do a great job with creating content and engaging the ones that continue to particpicate, however, I find myself frequenting the boards less simply because of the depressing scene the NHL has become. I use to have the forums open full time and constantly be reading posts. Now I might look here 2-3 times a day. I'm sure dobber has noticed a massive downfall in his site hits.

    Must make it really hard when you're going for 10K posts!

    It's really unfortunate that this lockout is having such a significant impact on all the off-shoots of the NHL. Arena workers, smaller hockey websites, apparel businesses, and fantasy sites don't have the luxury of having millions built up. Aside from wanting to have hockey back, I more so want to see it to stop the BS impact it's having on the non-millionaire/billionaire folks.

    I noticed Toronto to be a bit tame this morning. The subway was half empty on my typical commute. Guess a lot of our peeps are out of town?? Americans in disguise?!?!?! lol.
