To soompi forums?
I remember Soompi forums was always kicking and so lively with topics/posts popping up ALL the time! Why does it seem like it's slowed down a bit? Where did everyone go? It's been a while since I was really active here.

    well I suppose the 2nd generation like me are busy with college. Then there is the newer generation which... idk where they went. Most of the third generation already moved on with life T___T.

    Yes I do remember soompi being sooooo much more active but I guess it's also up to us to make this place as active as it was before.

    Oh man, I loved Soompi in 2008 and 2009. I had mostly computer classes during the last two years of high school so I'd just go on Soompi and post/comment since it was the one thing that wasn't blocked. So many things to respond to, aah.

    Lurkers, and 6 theory (well now hallyu 8)
    Soompi is too serious for some/many newer generation so onto 6theory
    Lurkers- who knows why they lurk? I remember when I first joined, I didn't realize Soompi had a confirmation email for quite some time so I couldn't post for several months

    Busy with college at the moment. Plus, I got a twitter recently. Too many social sites to tend too.

    Lurkers are scary D:

    And I agree with the 6theory thing... I think I'm part of the newer generation because I'm in high school, right?
    But I'm part of the smaller population of younger kids that prefer Soompi over 6theory...

    6theory is seriously such a zoo... I feel like there's no rules, even though the forum got revamped. Nothing really changed, except they took out the "craptastic" and "porn" sections.

    At Soompi, people have honest, genuine conversations, and I see a lot of people here have fun without acting wild.

    I've been a Soompier since 2008 and this is definitely my favourite forum! At times, I do wish some subforums were more active, but I'm glad that this community still exists. ^^
    Please kindly read the signature rules.

    Intellects are boring.

    That's why the younger, more "lively" generation has ditched this old forum.

    Why did you become inactive? Answer that and it'll probably be the same response for everyone else slowly distancing themselves. 

    Personally, when half the posts in new topics are ignored on my screen, I know I am not missing much.

    No idea...I think I just had more things to do, and it was around the time Facebook got extremely popular...hmm.

    Interesting about that 6theory place...never heard of it...I feel so OLD!

    ^ Bingo. Other more pressing obligations drove you (and others) away. 

    There was a discussion about this in that rules & suggestions section. Might want to browse through that and see what people said.

    yeah we intellectuals are too boring for children these days.

    seriously though something like

    "Hey yo suck this (&(^*%&%^(*)(&*%&$^$" doesn't sound too appealing. I mean... what's the point in a brainless conversation consisting of profanity and ignorance? lol

    It's like that in 6theory? Internet thugs are the sex appeal for teenagers over there?

    When I was there it was intense crazy. I don't even think I lasted more than a week. hahaha!
    -_____- it gets so lame. Not only in 6theory, but wherever there is a forum that is badly taken care of or no tough administrators/moderators to regulate the users.

    And I guess soompi, for many, is just too calm. I personally like it because I feel like we are all a family. I recognize several users here now, for example like monkeyinabarrel, nobody_knows, npb-xk (you), mannosuke, hermit, etc, inxomnia, xtlover16, etc.


    I'm still pretty much active, I always am I think. It's mostly because I find the entertainment to be much more adequate for my taste here than anywhere else hahaha.

    I feel honored you mentioned my name not in the "etc". :blush:
    Me too, I recognize SunniRise (you) and etc...

    We are too awesome.
    But I don't think we could all stay active forever... For instance, I remember not seeing Hermit so active like this unless I was half blind or something (I didn't even know he existed until people mentioned him).
    I was totally not active either, at most, I was only in the computer section being a serious nerd helping people around. Eventually one of my brain nerves exploded and here I am, going retarded all over Soompi.

    Mannosuke was, is, and will always be active on Soompi... ( not saying he has no life, Soompi IS life! :) ) He's our only hope and he's totally underrated for his hard work... I swear he deserves free subway sandwiches (not paid by me, count me out on this one).

    You know something I noticed about Mannosuke is his ability to add subliminal messages to his "subway" conversations. Sexual ones btw.

    No, I've always thought a man handling a foot-long was quite masculine as well.
    Of course, when a woman is handling it, it is even better.

    How they slowly heat it up. Carefully handling the balls.
    Finishing it off with the white stuff.

    As long as they clean up the mess afterwards.
    Or better yet, take it all in before it spills out the sides.

    The mayonnaise I mean.


    But anyways, I don't think I'll ever drift from soompi... or at least not any time soon. It's just sad to see that the activity here is starting to die down. :(

    Hopefully it's just all a phase.

    Yay I was recognized by you... I remember you said to old 6theorian people that your name stood for peanut butter something something...

    Aww, I recognise you too!


    For some reason ... I think soompi has become more credible now and so less kpop fever here..? Like, I guess... kind of like how tabloids sell... ? So 6theory = tabloid, soompi = glossy magazine? HAHA.

    But yeah, less kpop fanaticism (which I prefer) and probably more like a community than a .. college party? Man I'm full of weird analogies today haha. I remember soompi being very active with everyone socialising for fun, but I never really noticed or observed anyone in particular (it was too hard to, too many members lol) whereas now, I recognise usernames and at times, their posts/topics.


    But yeah I miss the creative forums like artwork + fanfix a lot.

    i made this soompi account 2 years ago but i never really started using it until a bit of last year and this year too but i noticed that soompi has become so much quieter now..

    i was a 6theory 2nd generation user before but after they made the 'new' 6theory, i just moved here. And i like it a lot better here in soompi. In 6theory it IS crazy and like a zoo there and there are people with like a -3000 reputation and so much trolling around. I remember i got over -10 on a post because i said that 'i don't watch porn, yaoi, hentai etc" LOL and i was like wtf. In 6theory it kinda seems like there are no rules lol you get bashed with your opinion and it's kinda like a tamer version of a kpop 4chan.

    Plus here in soompi the drama threads are on fire and they update THE MOST! WHICH I LOVE!! It's my favorite forum to go to when watching a drama because in 6theory drama threads are dead and theres not much you can find there. Soompi also has way more categories in the soompi interest section too which fills my boredom when the soompi k-interests part is dead.

    i actually like the intellectuals here in Soompi. They make the best posts in the drama sections and makes it a lot more interesting rather that "THAT #$59875432$#"$% HOE 2#%(*% Y U NO @#)9&^^ john teshING 23UALWE93#$" crap

    ...Well 2nd generation lets make soompi more alive! :))

    P.S 6theory also polluted my innocent mind for the first time when i saw this erotic Jongkey thing with Richard Simmons and stuff yeah its intense in there they love that stuff i remember they even had a thread all about masturbating LOL

    I don't post much though it's almost been 3 years or so that I joined. (I'm more of a lurker ;) )
    I did notice Soompi is much much quieter nowadays especially the "soompi interest" part.

    The teenagers back then are now or are becoming adult. Either they are already working or they're studying hard in college/Uni so there's not much time left, maybe.

    Maybe it is just my feelings but I feel like Soompier don't interact much between themselves except over debates. I'd like to see Soompi have a sort of "quote alert" when one soompier quote another so that there is more interactivity. Because, quoting someone probably mean that the quoter might find interesting the answer and maybe discuss about it.
    I'm not sure if I'm clear or not... I frequent a French forum and this system makes the forum pretty interesting since the forumers really talk between them.

    Anyway, I don't think I really answer the topic question but oh well :lol: ... You guys already sum it all.
