PlayStation Forum is DEAD Now :-(

I remember the good old days (2005) when there was lots of activity and good discussion. Back then, there'd be an infinite amount of posts and threads being created at once to the point where it was hard to keep up. Now, you're lucky if a thread gets 20 responses.

I miss them.  Lithium killed this board and the new flat design is terrible. That is all.

I don't think you are blaming the right people/company but I understand where you are coming from.

Lithium has been doing dumb crap since I've been around. If I remember correctly, they once purged the entire Off Topic board of posts.

It needs to happen again.

Yes, I was.

 

And hmmm as in most people would cite the switch to Jive, dumping of PSU, and subsequent changes as the reason for declined traffic here. Not the post count nullification or whatever you want to call it. Although I'm sure there are some people that left due to that.

Did they switch to this "Jive" then switch back to Lithium, or are they one in the same? The layout changes so much here. I thought the previous incarnation was better than what they have now.  The formatting of posts is just unnecessarily confusing and the board is way too scrunched in. Horrible UX design.
