I can only speak for myself, but the instability of the forum certainly has discouraged my participation over the last two months. Especially the pbp crowd has moved to dumpshock and similar fora.

I can only agree with this.  I used to post a couple of times a week (sometimes even multiple times per day) but now my last 15 posts have been in the course of six months.

especially for PbPs it's very tricky as they are often quite difficult to keep going as it is.  Add to that the forum being unavailable for some time and it's almost impossible to keep one going.

For PbP it is clearly showstopper, however I do not read those parts of the forum, so my feeling does not even take them into account....

I'm also not a PbP player, so I can't attest to that part.

I used to use dumpshock more, and I've paid closer attention to the other sources more recently with the outtages. But I feel like these forums are still more active than the dumpshock forums...

The most active parts of the forum seem to be threads like this one.

Well, of course, we could always jump onto create other threads ;D

Can it be that we have had more up time than down so far this year? *Knock on wood*

And in a rather strange turn of events, it looks like the BT forums are suffering the same kind of issues we've been (though this is the first I've seen it over there).
