    I was out at the VH part of egroups.com today and noticed the following trend. I think it is significant; the hardcore are starting to lose interest.

    Notice the sharp downward numbers for October.

    Message archive by month:

    Jan 847
    Feb 763
    Mar 847
    Apr 450
    May 687
    Jun 847
    Jul 901
    Aug 705
    Sep 813
    Oct 450
    Nov ???
    Dec ???

    Why is it so frickin hard to table things on these boards?

    First six albums rule. In addition, the following represent the only two Y2K release in the world that are preventing me from losing it altogether waiting for the VH reunion.

    Hmm, it's either possible that they're losing interest, or it could be another fluctuation, such as from March to April to May (a drop from 800 to 400 and back up again).

    It should be interesting to see if the trend continues or not.

    I don't see this as an immediate problem.
    First, there is a new forum where *rarely* Bradman answers fan questions, just like on the VHML. The difference lies in the quality: most of the posts in the forums are ... well ya know, it's not necessary to comment.
    Second, rumors spreaded all the way during the pre-summer months. Now, winter's comin', and rumors are pretty most the same. I believe the number of posts reflect how people got tired of them...

    I do think people are starting to loose intrest a little. Its been a year of nothing but speculation, rumors, false dates, flame wars, and more rumors and speculation.

    I have been here almost a year and have seen more than one person post a shit load then disappear from the links or other sources.
    I think people honestly thought we would have some news buy now. I will be the first to admit that I dont post as often as I used to but I do come and read the post every day.
    So many of the topics have been done 4 and 5 times over, its hard to give your 2 cents on the same topic 3 times.

    I truely do beleive that once a announcement is made it will explode. Weather or not its Dave is back or we dont know what we are going to do - people will come back and post. Problem is we dont know whats going on.

    I think it's reaching the point where we've talked about just about everything - 5 times. Just in limbo now waiting for that injection of something new

    Well, around here we still really haven't recovered from PD starting up - I can always tell a difference in the amount of new posts each morning when I show up.

    I imagine things will be a little slow and we'll all get tired of looking at each other between now and an announcement, but hopefully things will pick up after that.

    I actually thought there seemed to be some increase at first when PD started, but now, yeh , theres a definate downturn... Im guessing its partially PD, partially burn-out. Theres just not much here we havent covered anymore (for the time being).
