Yeah, that’s pretty accurate. The Star Wars sections of this site are still pretty active, but Off Topic has yet to revive. Maybe one day… But that doesn’t mean it’ll be as fun as it used to be. No moderation meant things got pretty delightfully ridiculous at times and there was a repertoire of inside jokes/forum memes that will be lost to time.
I’m not sure if those sections really are that active. There was a time when a new topic would get many responses in a day. Now you might go days without any replies.
To be expected I guess. Star Wars is mostly played out I think.
There is a Woke mentality that had crept into this place too. Tends to stifle any real debate, since real debate might cause offense. And to the Woke mentality being offensive means being hateful, which is being harmfull…and I am going to stop there before random thoughts goes the way of the politics thread.
There’s a lot of new active posters, a lot of them seem pretty chill. Hopefully there will be a third wave on OT.com. But the older posters being gone sucks hard, and the circumstances around their departure were really unfortunate.
I kind of wish they and the mods would reconcile so they could come back, but a lot of them have said they are no longer interested. Oh well. Can’t change that anymore.
