    anyone else think forum activity is decreasing?

    i noticed that the average number of users online was just over 30, compared to the most ever users which is close to 200,000. i also noticed that when you go to the "what's new?" tab, the latest activity can be up to 10 minutes ago, while a few months ago i could swear there was a post every 10-30 seconds!

    Yes, from what I have observed casually is a general decline over the years.

    But... Forums in general have declined. Technology changes. Forums in general have declined as more move to other social platforms. Do not believe the decline is isolated to these forums only.

    I'm not sure where that figure came from. I just checked and it says "There are currently 4107 users online." How could the average be 30?

    On the other hand, some types of forums seem to work out well for companies. Support forums, for example, do well because customers need help, and they’ll generally seek that out where ever it exists. So, if you’re a manufacturer, then a simple support forum will likely do just fine. Major brands or specialty companies with decent-sized fan bases can also do well."
    IMO, with the implementation of the asinine, atrocious, awful, and off-putting feature known as Supercell Automated Support, the official Supercell forums are more important than ever as a resource for players like me to seek help and learn about CoC and HD.

    With SC announcing in-game now, it has reduced the need to use the forums (and other social media). I still enjoy it here, though.

    Contact SC here. Click here for how trophies are calculated. Click here to see how war map placement of max halls is determined. An idea to improve legends here. I wish max players had a separate loot bank as described here. Caution, I often discuss for the sake of discussion and enjoy having my opinion challenged (or approved of) even when I care little about the actual issue. My balance wish: get rid of tornado trap, make it a decoration.

    Probably because people are busy with their holiday.
