I've been on the forum for a year now, and it has been during that time relatively nice and quiet. However through the summer holidays/ Christmas etc. more people have breaks from school/Work and play warlight, create tones of threads which are unessasary and irelavent, then leave after the holiday. Then it gets more peaceful ( there are still trolls of course but less ).
The reason why the forums in a bad way now is because of the summer holidays and 2.0 has been realised, new players and trolls in hordes have taken over the forum with spam and excitement. E.g there where about 10 threads about ADS.
significant number of top-1uality 10-year-olds here
My suggestions for the future, create an events section for the forum, the off topic thread is more active with these threads^^^^^^^. Also have a invite list to forum threads.
