People are still here. Or, people have lives and can't check soompi every 4 seconds.

Well, what made it active and what makes it different from now?

More SUBWAY and korean BBQ threads?

Forums in general are kind of dead in this Twitter/Facebook day and age.

Aww guys don't worry I joined a week ago and I'll get this forum started up in no time w00t.gifw00t.gifw00t.gif

Joke aside I must admit the forum seems kind of dead to me as well which is sad. But thankfully this one of the few internet sites that makes sense to me. Sure I go on tumblr for time to time and I think I'm finally getting the hang of it. But I just can't figure out twitter and that me2day site. So you'll be stuck with me for some time. At least until I figure out the purpose with twitter and me2day something I don't think will happen any time soon.phew.gif

Well, people started to become busy. It's still active in some way, just not the same.

I always thought forums were kinda "dead" ... Seems like an old trend to me. Though I am quite sad that soompi isn't as active anymore.

A lot of things happened, and yes, 2007 was when the forum was still great.

The content.

Plus you can tell the ages in there.

Bingo. Don't forget other stuff like iPhone.

there have been sooo many threads like this lately.... its dead only if oyu make it dead. people have jobs and college and life to deal with, its not as if they have the time to sit down and check soompi every single day. Even if they do, its hard to be on for a long time. Its not necessarily dead, in the L&R forums, its just as busy as ever. Its simply the QUALITY has decreased. Many people on the forums are younger than previous generations and just look at it this way: have different personaloties. The threads are changing and maybe its just not to your style- for example, there have been sooo amny new threads lately ----- but alot of them are girls who are begging for compliments and asking if they are ulzzang when they obviously arent. Do something about threads like that and maybe soompi would be more lively ^_^

I know what you mean, some of the threads are really old.  There's just so many active forums now and different options outside of Soompi ex: 6theory.  I don't think its necessarily dead though ^_^

I suggest soompi go social media somehow.

Or build an app for the forums so its easier to read and post from anywhere.

I think Soompi is quite alive in comparison to many forums which I had been takin part in in the past.

Also if you take a look on active users, is really quite big, in this Twitter/Facebook times :)

it might seem dead but look at the ratio of members to guests at the bottom of the main forum page.

some forums allow guests to post (after moderator approval). i wonder if...
