  1. Yes solid considering the circumstances. This is a box office/movie forum. There is less theatrical movie news and no box office. If you really think we wouldn't have lost a lot of members and activity over that, then I think you have confused why a large portion of the community did come to this site for: to discuss how their movies are doing and how future movies will do. I can tell you right now that over the years, activity on this site has gone up when the box office is doing really well and tapered when the box office is slow. There is a direct correlation with how movies are doing and the activity on this site. I've attached a chart of total posts over time so you can see what I mean: we peak when the box office peaks, we are very weak when the box office is weak. So 50% loss of activity with no box office? Yeah, solid. I sincerely hope Avatar 2, with other big tentpoles, can help bring people back to theaters and bring the box office back. January 2020 posts: 14,778 February 2020 posts: 15,554 (posts went up despite the fanboy thread being closed at the START of February) March 2020 posts: 16,278 May 2020 posts: 10,773-here you see a drop-off. I'm guessing COVID/theaters closing drove posting in March since it was so new. But as movie news slowed down and with no box office... June 2020 posts: 8,155 July 2020: 7,149 August 2020: 7,864 September 2020: 7,516 October 2020: 7,452 So with half the members we are making...about half the posts. Which is what you'd expect.
  2. I imagine a lot of the friendly faces you are missing did indeed leave after we cracked down on trolling. We are perfectly fine with a community that is smaller but better to be in than a community that is larger but toxic. But I know you like your data so I'm going to share some with you. We can actually track community activity. The site lists this as "The total number of members who submitted new content, followed something, or reacted to something on the community in the specified time period." Our data for February 2020: 578 (down from 593 in 2019...not a significant amount). The fanboy thread was locked down at the start of February and we did not seem to lose any real activity during February. Our data for March 2020 when the lockdowns started: 473 And we've been around 300 until Tenet came out when it went back up slightly to 355 (and 367 in September) then it went back down to around 300. Oddly enough our activity lulls are usually in September! What do we see here? We lost about 200 members around the lockdown. We gained a little bit when there was box office then it went back down. So two things: 1) One people actually did come here to discuss box office numbers especially during blockbuster seasons. 2) Yes there are movies in the pipeline but news is slow on that front due to COVID and there isn't as much to discuss. 300 member activity is actually pretty solid for us. Of course, since you seem to think people are fleeing our site to other sites, you are free to go ahead and stop posting here and start posting at these sites with less moderation. Have a good day JCS.
  3. We have updated the site to 4.2.0! We are happy that we're finally live with this update for numerous reasons. Please note there may be some bugs so please don't hesitate to submit a support ticket or to PM Water Bottle/Telemachos. Please note of the following changes: [*] Autoembedding is back. No longer having to manually put stuff in if we support automatically embedding it! [*] Reactions instead of just likes. ALL REACTIONS ADD ONE LIKE POINT TO A USER'S LIKE COUNT. EVEN THE CONFUSED REACTION. All reactions count towards your like limit. I guess it's a reaction limit now. [*] Clubs are live. Anyone can create a club and they'll have SOME moderator privileges over that club area. I've created some clubs for popular franchises. If you wish to take over the club and have a clean record (no recent warnings or suspensions), let me know. Please know site rules still exist and violating these moderate privileges will lead to your club being taken away from you. Please one club per franchise unless you can justify it's own existence. Clubs don't have to be related to movies. [*] Franchise forums will close soon since clubs can take the place of it.

  6. The update is now done. The two major skins (movie background and the default skin) are now updated to be compatible with the latest version. The ad-free skin has yet to be updated. IMPORTANT CHANGES: You will be prompted when you log-in next or when you register to put in answers to security questions. These answers you will provide when you update key account info or when you try to use money to donate to the site. You will now get an e-mail when your e-mail or password changes. Please let the staff know using the contact us button if you did not request either change but get an e-mail. The default setting for all is to automatically follow threads you create or post in. You can change this setting under notification settings found in account settings. You will now get an embed message when you try to embed a video or picture but fail. If you are suspended, you will now get a page telling you why and for how long.
