Not to sound ignorant or anything, but I see less and less people posting and less matches people made. I also see good matches with amazing setups not getting enough attention. I Remember back in the old CBUB days when matches would go up to 100 posts, but matches now barely make it up to 30 posts. The only matches I see getting a lot of attention are matches with DBZ characters.

Guy's I'm not saying I'm 100% factual, but I'm just going by what I've seen. I could be wrong.

Nope. It's just we don't do as much promoting as we should. The site's still active. I mean I'm talking to you right now.

I know it is active, of course it is(Is just that EF is a small community). But CBUB is not what it use to be, I mean when I first joined this site during the old CBUB(The one where you can only do 1 vs 1 matches), matches would reach up to 300 posts. And even after the new incarnation of CBUB came, matches wee still getting up to about 300 posts.

If you compare the older CBUB matches to the current ones, you would see that CBUB was more active during the older days.

Certainly. I remeber the old days. But these days, I don't know... no one ever explained what happened in 2009 to cause it.

I just think the flame wars sort of burnt out. I use to remember huge flame wars happening and cliques forming.

Eh. The EF site as a whole seems okay. Most attention is focused on the forum though. People who would normally spend their time on the CBUB now spend it on the forums asking if the CBUB is dying.

Then again, I can't judge how the CBUB's doing. I haven't been there in a while...

Heh. It was fun. Sure, the boards busted sometimes, everyone argued about whether DBZ fighters were faster than light, and we had multi-accounters in every corner, but it was fun. Heck, the "debates" we're ridiculously nerdy, but everyone was doing it and thus, no one felt silly.

I'm sure the CBUB will be fine. It has a smaller population, and many senior members don't frequent it as much (due to time, FPL, etc) but hey, it's a tough little website.

The CBUB is dying? You mean that place full of multi-accounters, plagiarists, trolls and fanboys? Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Well, I haven't been here that long, but when I first joined there were always 2 sometimes 3 pages of matches up. Right now, there's only one. I think it's because most of the regulars aren't writing as much due to life, RPs, bad grades, etc. I just simply don't have ideas come to me like I used to. When I started, I had a new match idea usually before the other one had even ended. Now I go months without making a match. :D

I guess, what I'm saying is, if we want cbub to improve, we have to write good matches and get people to comment on them, which is what the league did. Also, the whole story was fun to create, and anyone could join it. I think a lot of people want to make the cbub better, but are too lazy to do anything. That's why I think we need to work together to improve.
