Is it just me or has user activity dropped significantly over the past two weeks?

Now it's really feeling slow. Forum, shoutbox, even the ratings received. Wonder what happened as of late...

Did the codex ever have a significant vatnik presence? Ruskies never topped 5% of the forum's daily traffic when I used to look at it on occasion. Now if potatoland got hit we'd feel it.

Owlcat refugees (queers/trannies/furries) artificially bumped their numbers here. Hopefully they are getting drafted and drone striked. There are Owlcat fans on both sides of the border, so the "special operation" is a win-win.

Except for the reality that the majority of vatniks dont live in Russia, they live in mostly Western countries

You didnt think that the loudest " pro-Russia " voices would really want to live in Russia? So they wont get drafted on either side

I'd say a significant number lives in China and pretend they live elsewhere.

People aren't rating because it's a double click to rate now, I don't rate anymore unless I get really triggered.
Is this a bad thing?

I've complained at the time and Taluntain told me to deal with it. It seems like everyone is dealing with it, alright. It's ok, ratings are not that important, but let's just state the facts so he doesn't act surprised when people change their forum habits.

The old atrociously ugly rating method can be turned on without effort at any time. Just saying.
Personally, just me eh, I just asked for the button list to be shown upon mouse hover, like it was in the first days after the new design was put in place, and this was too much for Taluntain, citing lack of consistency because you have to double click the alerts button (???) despite the two functions being very different in nature. Double clicking to rate is just ridiculous and not worth the effort most of the time. I'm just finding out that this double clicking is affecting the rating habits of the userbase but I'm not surprised in the slightest.

Poor Kalarion must be suffering.

Activity is down because I have been unexpectedly busy away from the forum and people come here, for the most part, to read my awesome takes and sick insults. This explains why the site suddenly started existing only a bit less than a year ago, objectively speaking.

Also, you know, between Brandon's recession and Putin's price hikes, the ol' AOL fees add up. Who can afford all these minutes of internet access anymore?

Agree.

Also no.
Aside from it now requiring two clicks per button rating, each button expands in size when the mouse cursor is over it, which sometimes makes it more difficult to click on the correct rating, when an adjacent rating expands and partially covers it. :M

buttons should require a captcha
if you want to use that button, you gotta earn it
WOW! You blew my mind with that comment because it was so unexpected and I replied with my exact feelings with a click of a button!
