To be far most of those UTI posts where due to JBB posting non-sense stuff about the nspire.
Though I do see increased activity at least at RS and UTI. We are both coming up with ways to bring people together.
Yeah true, plus a lot by Xeda. A few people being active a lot can bring back or attract people, though, due to the activity, unless JBB posts would actually scare people away. (like some posts by other people 1.5 years ago) X.x.
The issue with MaxCoderz right now (the same since 2006) is that their domain name change was never advertised anywhere in their readmes and such things. I suggested it in 2007 when I returned from a hiatus, as I saw the site activity drop considerably, but to no avail.
By the way here are the approximate post stats of several TI boards over the last 6 years attached to this post. Those who haven't frequented some forums for a while or are newer will have an idea of how active some sites were at some points. MaxCoderz used to be the reference for ASM programming help and games. Then you can check out Cemetech/Omni's 2008 crest, followed by a regain of activity. I am certain that with some effort (and without posts such as JBB's, no offense to him), sites such as UTI/MC/RS can thrive again. RS is not dead, though, because some staff are still working on projects. It just doesn't get many posts.
By the way this image is out of date. I didn't feel like checking boards again for their respective final post of 2010 ID and the like. I might update it eventually. It says Dec 22nd but I think Omni is even more out of date, because considering activity was lower during holidays, it's nearly impossible that we went from 83K to 87K in 9 days then.
