The idea of this poll comes from the Reminiscing Neowin
thread. We all know that activity on the forums has gone down considerably - there used to be ~3,000 posts a day on average, now we're in the ~1,000-1,500 posts a day range (extrapolated from the top 20 posters list). It's an anonymous, multiple choice poll. The choices were added in no particular order.
I'd be particularly interested to hear from longstanding members of the community - those who went from very active to lurking and posting once in a blue moon.
Personally, I don't have a lot of complaints currently. There is one recent staff promotion I do not agree with - a global moderator whose posts reek of condescension towards members in threads about a beta operating system should have been reprimanded rather than made supervisor. Alas, that's just my personal opinion; I'm sure senior staff had their reason to promote him.
Let's see if this thread can gain any traction and help to find out why forum activity is down as much as it is.
