Is DIC still an active community ?

Posted 19 January 2020 - 01:16 AM

Hey guys,

This is the first time I have been on to DIC since possibly 2016/2017 and just looking over some of the active people when I was here and have noticed that it's been a year or two since they have been active.

So just having a look at the Game Development section, it has been really dead, not even Stayscrisp or BBeck, which is a real shame, because they contributed greatly.

This leaves me to wonder, is DIC still the thriving community it used to be? or has things slowed down recently?

Cheers,

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Slowed down, but active. Yes.

With Discord servers, Facebook, & StackOverflow, there is pretty stiff competition. Forums are not really the primary 'community communication tool' anymore, from what I see with other sites.

We've become a more selective community.

Self-selected, mind you, but much more selective.

It's always had it's ebb and flow, but with more things going on other platforms, it has dropped off a little.

This thread was last active in October. So, maybe we're not as active as we could be...

Personally, I am not an active user of these forums. I am a sedentary user of these forums.

Over in the Web Development board. Authorities suggest avoiding the Javascript forum until further notice.
