Why Is HB So Dead?

February 09, 2013 @ 04:09:56
I mean i don't understand why places like OFT and KTT have more contributing members than HB. Although all the regular posters here are dope and obviously more tasteful (nohomo) we got barely any members. I blame it on Kevin Ma... what do you guys think tho?

u sayin u wanna be more mainstream? lets be honest, this is hypebeast: gathering place for pinoys and hipsters. oh and a few cool dudes i guess

I've noticed that activity has been falling at an alarming rate since I first joined. My assumption is that people are leaving due to all these problems the forums are having, tech wise. Just a few weeks ago we had at least 5 times as much activities. Now the last bumped thread will be from 15 minutes ago, even during prime hours

Chicks barely dancin, glancin every chance they get, like - oh shit, he's so HANSUM

ye i think most of the members have moved on to different forums...
this place signed its life away when it got rid of the vbulletin and further layout changes and then recently we can't even quote ppl without some glitches. also couple this with the fact that streetwear in general got killed by karmaloop...HB hurtin. #OYOY till i die doe

hypebeast has tons of lurkers who only post in the apparel section.
Spring season hasn't started yet so there isn't much to talk about with brands, only what's in a lookbook or what people are expecting
and Off topic is the same old shit; bad trolls and players. 

.wa do dem.

I still can't figure out if fakeasslondon is really London or a troll stalking his instagram

My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious

So you want HB to be more like OFT and KTT full of fuckbois?

:0

February 09, 2013 @ 07:11:11
why get rid of vbulletin

it was probably cheap as fuck to run

It took me forever to figure out how to embed a picture, it's pretty picky on who's hosting it.

i guess they're just trying to be slick, but the search function blows, you can't look through people's post history anymore.

And then I started smoking crack... every day. And now I don't know who I am anymore.

Yea I joined around the same time as you and I remember it was much more alive back then, it's gotten pretty dead in just the span of a year. The community here (or at least off topic) is pretty close-knit witch I like...I'd hate to see this place go the same route of BapeTalk.
February 09, 2013 @ 07:15:14
When they changed the design we lost half of the members on here overall. And now everyone is a failed troll. On top of that nothing in this forum functions properly. The sb for example right now. That's why its been so dead since what, mid 2011?

edit, wdywt also has not seen a decent fit in 2 years.

so yeah
this. recently when i try to post the damn thing doesn't appear. only reason i stuck to HB really was for news on the front page and off topic. but front page news can practically be found anywhere and off topic is slowly losing its touch like others have said.

don't try to fix things that aren't broken HB

Pretty much. A lot of regulars dropped off after each major layout change
February 09, 2013 @ 10:26:44
nothing really interesting except a few threads in the off topic section here and there. just busy with life too.
February 09, 2013 @ 11:45:03
Don't forget the attempted assault on KTT that backfired.
