    meh i like the people who occasionally post on pd. i don't feel any loyalty to anyone but qoorl. i delete bots randomly cuz i'm way bored during the day and cuz it makes my fiance' happy. HE cares because pd basically got him through his first marriage, it might not have been pd's best times but it was the ONLY good thing he had (besides his daughter, obviously). i would get on other forums, hell i'd get on cosmo, but from what you say, rayne, it's dead too. so. any suggestions of interesting live forums?

    god this is pds 'up'. that is cosmos 'low'. that alone should make apparent how the current state of pd is depressing.

    the difference between cosmo and pd is that people on cosmo dont care. they just go with the flow. activity and quality rise and fall arbitrarily. its always been like that. theres nothing to 'improve' about the forum. theres no effort to be put in anywhere. we have like two main boards. people just post shit and cosmo will die when there is nothing to post about anymore.

    but on pd there are people actively trying to improve the board, which is pointless for several reasons. for starters the spambot problem is not going to go away because no one has powers and even qoorl is going to be worn down by the endless swarm of bots that plague the board each day. also pds general quality is not going to improve significantly unless there is a resurgence of old posters or a considerable amount of good new posters which considering the state of disarray the board is currently in doesnt seem likely.

    but the biggest problem is that qoorl, the guy at the forefront of this 'movement', is someone whos pushing for pushing for rps to become popular, contributions to the site, pokemon discussions and shit like that - methodical improvements. but thats radically different from what this forum was and what you want this forum to be. cultivating an atmosphere thats based around random discussion like on old pd or cosmo is completely based on spontaneity, which is why forums of this sort are so rare and die so easily. once a forum like that runs out of steam then its very hard to bring it back. i believe cosmo still has some left in it. but pd has been stagnant for a long while.

    in the two and a half years that ive posted here, those brief two weeks after tags were introduced were the only bright spots in quality. everything else was shit. cosmo at least is consistent in its mediocrity. but when pd is bad it becomes bad.

    im not urging anyone to join cosmo. im pointing out that its dumb to keep beating a dead horse. if qoorl wants to start a new rp forum and get people posting in it or just a new place for current pders to hangout then id support it but him trying to do it here is just depressing.

    I wonder if there's any way to find and bring back such key members. I for one would love to see mex reappear again. Tho i think she was much less morbid last time she was here sadly.

    to be honest no one who hasnt done so yet is not going to go over to cosmo or anything so if they want this place at least free of bots so they can make a few posts to each other every day or other day or so who really cares, thats just how its gonna happen. pd probably wont ever 'flourish' again but there will probably be brief spurts of mild activity spaced out between several months, nothing wrong with that really.

    See, here is a man of logic.

    It's not like it's hurting anyone to clean up this place and post here. Well, except whoever's paying for this. Which is Mewtwo, right?

    there will be more resistance of leaving pd because its been around for 7 years and there is more of an attachment developed. if ANYTHING for the pursuit of one active board cosmo should come to pd.

    why should cosmo come to a board littered with spambots, with no forum or server administrator, two or three active boards out of the multitudes that serve no purpose and have not been posted in for years and a history that nobody will be able to live past, especially not the veterans and nostalgiafags? emotional attachment is a bullshit excuse. most of the active posters now have been active for probably a year or two, you and eve being the only exceptions.

    like really the only people showing 'emotional attachment' are qoorl who joined during the end of 07, nearly two years after god claimed pds prime had passed, kirby who joined when i did, trixie who came back last year, and the newbies. coincidentally these were the only people keeping alive at all, with a few meagre posts per week, over the past couple of months. makes no sense to me at all.

    Me and Trixie were here before both Tim and Eve...

    And I can't post on cosmo anymore because I forgot my password.

    id post an elaborate response explaining how youre retarded but i cant bring myself to type it up. which is significantly more embarrassing for you when you consider that a couple of hours ago i wrote a tl;dr treatise on pd and cosmo forum dynamics and yet i still consider you a blander subject matter.
