I'm guessing omnimaga used to be much less active, like UTI at one point.

Ah, found it!


This is VERY VERY VERY out of date. That's from late May I think <.<. I should post an update of this, including the smaller boards I did not include above.

yeah I've looked at that before, the other one confused me ^-^

So while other forums have dies, omnimaga has started picking up steam?

No, Cemetech's definitely reviving too :) Unfortunately some forums still have really low activity, and they've never really recovered from the lulls of 2008.
^ This. Hopefully TI-BD continues picking up as well. As for UTI/MaxCoderz/TI-FW I think right now the issue is that they don't have enough active staff and projects in the works. Revsoft might have chances to revive now that they got new staff. I don't know about the others...
so 2008 was a devastating year... what happened?
It seemed like most people were not ambitious enough on new ideas. Whenever someone had a funky idea à-la-calc84maniac, it would be put down by others who would say it's impossible and to not bother. There was also a drastic increase in trolling in overall, Omni died to it, Cemetech had major hosting issues and Ticalc.org staff were less and less active. That combined caused a loss of interest in overall and many people left due to drama or lack of new stuff.
Looking at October...wow
Looks on the rise to me ;D
Yeah I was kinda shocked by October, because normally we should have gotten between 4000 and 8000 posts, since it's supposed to be much less active than September. (Especially that this year we also had a hosting move)
you mean october?  ???
anyway, DJ, did you get that Axe update news from Quigibo?
* yunhua98 is excited  ;D
I didn't get one. ???

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

She you said there might be an axe update, did you receives word from Quigibo, or are you just speculating?  :P

Spoiler For =====My Projects=====:
Minor setback due to code messing up.  On hold for Contest.

On hold for Contest.


Spoiler For ===Staff Memberships===:






Have you seen any good news-worthy programs/events?  If so, PM me with an article to be included in the next issue of CGPN!
The Game is only a demo, the code that allows one to win hasn't been done.

She? ???

There's a girl on the forums? ???

Also I just took that from Axe Progress thread. Quigibo said there might be an update soon, there.

EDIT: In response to those extremly outdated community stats posted earlier, I spent a few minutes updating the ones I had on my computer. The attachment below shows an idea of the community forums activity since 2005.
