    I can't help but be really disappointed though.
    Especially as I made the failbook group aware of the revival and everything =(
    That's what has made me think people really aren't interested in small group forums anymore.
    Though, I guess the fact that many moved on from anime is also a factor.
    Acting like it's for kids now or something.

    In my reality, most of them have moved on from the idea of web discussion forums. Indeed they fancy small independent online communities, but they use Discord for that. (A surprisingly large minority, in my reality again, prefers IRC, but that must be a lot rarer in general.)

    Oh, you just wait a bit more.

    In my country, we have already reached the point where the majority of kids frown at European and American comics. Iíd almost guess that in this day and age, both Lucky Luke and Spider-Man (in print form) have more grown-up fans than underage ones. We might not be far from the day when the same goes for your average Japanese comic series. In fact, it could already be the case for such classics as "Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind", "Chobits"... and "Love Hina".

    Of course, this does not mean that all who loved manga and anime in the 00s are still fans today. It means that I donít have a clue what sorts of entertainment the 10Ė15-year-olds consume today.

    Oh, and I am drifting far off topic here. Unless we make this a "Do You Still Consider Yourself a Manga and Anime Fan?" poll.

    At least the 10-15 year olds these days aren't the losers trying to infect Japan with their horrible ideologies and agendas.
    I mean, even the UN is trying to change Japan for no good reason.

    Things are getting really stupid in the world these days -.-;
    I blame access to social media. It gives utter morons a louder voice than they've ever had before.

    Outrage culture is a plague.

    But I doubt that has anything to do with people not wanting to visit a small forum.

    Weelllll... If you want to look at it in the worst possible light:

    On a small forum, you only have major drama a few times a year. Sometimes only once per two or three years. Even more seldom, if the place is not active.

    On Tumblr and Facebook, you can join a major drama of your choice whenever you feel like it.

    Personally I get a bit sick of the overdose of drama in those places.
    Can't we all just sit down and have a fun discussion? =(

    We have an outdated vbulletin version, many forums use xenforo these days but something is for sure, not everybody is still into anime. I agree that the new blood is on discord, reddit, and the social networks. Drama is part of the forum and we had a lot
