From 50 Members to 230?!?
 
This seems to have happened in a matter of days! I'm glad we're getting some new people but... where they all at?!

They're largely Russian bots. Some of them are legit... but it's a slow vetting process. I'm wondering how they defeat the challenge questions.

Michael Heide 08-27-2019 05:40 AM

Did the mass unbanning increase those numbers?

Only 3 people seemed to have returned to active or semi-active posting status after that.

I mean, Ionfan somehow found his way in, so...

What counts as an active member? Is it just a single post in a certain amount of time (a month or something)? Because even some of those 50 are not exactly chatty.

Mister Ed 08-27-2019 04:32 PM

It may not even require posts. "Active" might be based off visits. I know I don't feel like I post all that often, but I visit multiple times a day.

Am I a Russian bot?

Nyet!!!!

Ha! I told you!

I was actually going to send you a PM, Dave, about the forum....I know I've been largely absent for the last 3 years due to gaming addiction, and all of a sudden show up 4 days ago posting again (battling gaming addiction), but man, are people even aware this forum exists anymore? Aside from the tried and true posters that we usually see contributing to the forum.

Big Daddy Dave Skywalker 09-04-2019 07:30 PM

Most of the posters have drifted away, but many of the old regulars at least pop their heads in once in a blue moon. Part of it is the decline of message boards with social media reigning supreme, and the other big factor is that Green Lantern is in the midst of another lull in popularity. We may never see the frenzy that we did leading up to the 2011 movie, but if you think about it, most of the fans that came in and out during that time were pretty much fair weather fans. It's like anything else that is a cozy little niche corner that loyal fanboys keep afloat; popularity is a double edged sword. Johnny Come Latelys are good for business, but aren't there when the party is over.

I blame The Big Bang Theory.

Huh. You and I both avoid social media. It would be interesting to see if a lot of the more frequent visitors are not very active on Facebook or Instagram.

Well, in that case, I blame entropy and the slow heat death of the universe. Or were you speaking of some other Big Bang Theory?

Maybe DC should shit out another crappy movie based on this specific character like Fox does with the Fantastic Four. It will be the the dawn of the prequel haters all over again. Good times👍

What precipitated this? Are they testing the defenses of web sites, preparing for a nationwide invasion during next year's elections?

Today, the Green Lantern Corps Message Board. Tomorrow, the world! :sinestro:

Trey Strain 09-25-2019 02:38 PM

It's strange to come here and see six or seven bots logged in.

Mass unbanning? I have been gone a while. So, those couple of guys who ripped off other members in the toy forum have been reinstated? I won't name them, but we know who they are.

Trey Strain 10-06-2019 02:12 PM

Anyone whose Biography says "Man" is a bot.
