Agreed..get rid of all the extra functionality garbage..no one uses it.

Also...while more rainbows would be good..I think just one big rainbow somewhere would be more effective.

Also..why is so grey?Grey sucks.grey is'nt the colour of fun...bang of civil service off it..Try a few diff combinations ffs..I favour chocolate and tangerine.YMMV.

It reminds me of a walker from the walking dead that doesn't realise it died way back and is just a dribbling, empty mindless shell of what it once was.
thumped needs the digital equivalent of a pickaxe to the head.

I think Tumped was at it's most popular back in the days before twitter, facepuke, the blogspot explosion, soundcrud and wankcamp. There wasnae much in the way of alternative for the people to discuss music in a group context, arrange meet-ups, organise TYM, and advertise gigs and releases and what not. And more stuff along those lines. It's like it was a really good community solution for a Web 1.0 environment but has floundered on the rocks of Web 2.0 and is being lashed by the breakers, cold and relentlessly rolling in with the rising tide.

There's exceptions... boards.ie seems to be going strong... maybe due to hitting some kind of critical mass. Jim Carroll's blog seems to be going well - but he's in a good position, being a prominent part of the Irish Times website. I don't think he would have a market outside of that. That's just an honest opinion, not me being bitter and shite or however else he wants to insult thumped posters.

But if a new site can offer a bit of core functionality that's not otherwise available, then the people will flock to it. As far as I can see, most message board sites aren't doing well.

I think that a change in the nature of the site is required in order to reverse the malaise. I don't think changing features is really going to cut it.

Didn't you hear retarded transformation dude?
It's the colour scheme and the plethora of forums;
Change it to orange tones and reduce the number of forums to five or six talking about retardedozbabymation's youtube vids and the place will be overrun in days.

Winner.

i think you've nailed it there. what i find interesting is that all the above mentioned upped their popularity by becoming more like forums, while continually singing the 'death of the forum' song. emperors new clothes really. I'm probably a bit oldschool but i'm still pretty sure you cant beat a forum for anonymous unfiltered archived conversation. its actually getting to the point where you can say to your kids 'yeah, we had that argument way back in 2002, this is how it pans out every time'. cant see that happening with many other formats of online discussion.
