I just noticed a drop in posting activity today. For those of you in high school, is everyone taking finals, or are we already gone on vacation?

summer gym/health + soccer + weightlifting + friends + axe project = little time to post. for some reason, everyone is ridiculously social this summer where i live. it's almost overkill

Today seems similar to this weekend, but since the last 3 days, despite post count being a bit high, the amount of topics that are active has dropped a lot and I also noticed much less people post. It seems to be the same people posting now :P

I hope this summer is not as bad as what I've seen in 2006 and 2007 x.x

2009 was not active, but at least there were a lot of people who were still frequenting the forums.

EDIT: I also renamed this topic since the title wasn't really related to the actual topic :P

Not only we are posting less but also staff projects don't seem to have many progress.

When the finals end, we have to start posting interesting stuff to catch up the activity.

Yeah, I hope some of the projects progresses again when school starts. My hope is that not too many staff/members have Summer classes+job or no internet access

You'll see.
Put it this way:
One update
One that you've already seen
One new Axe one

If we post them during Summer maybe we can prevent the activity to drop too much with the plus of advancing the works.
There is plenty of time in Summer, but there are several "problems" like more lax about programming.

yeah people usually just take the excuse that school is done so no more need for the calc, and stop coding. Some people only code in class. Sadly calc programming often come as a 2nd hobby for most people in the TI community.

That said it's kinda weird we feel the board is less active in some ways, because back in 2006 we started complaining when we had like 75-100 a day and we still have the double XD. However I can understand with everyone being used to extended high activity so when it drops, it feels inactive. Back in 2009 we had like 25-50 a day for a while and people felt the site was rather active :P

The bad thing, though, is if activity went down by A LOT in one shot for a long period of time, though, because it could discourage new members who are not used to it, then it's hard to get them back later.

I also renamed that thread to Forums (in)activity because it was kinda strange to have a thread about low Omnimaga activity when it is 3 times higher than last year ;D (in other words, it can cover both the inactivity and activity)
