The place is a ghost town. We're lucky if we get three posts a day in here nowadays. Back in the day it was so much better.

Ideas people? Ideas???

Move all the terrible threads back to white noise

As soon as terrible threads started white noise went downhill.
Those were all great threads,

Went downhill?

White Noise was already tumbling uncontrollably towards a bottomless chasm before those threads were moved.

White Noise was at it's peak in 07

Of course, I wasn't around..but neither was half the board.

I think after the SoS incident, WN went from semi activity to this.

Regardless of when it existed, WN/DRN/BN has been what Cabooster Juice stated.

I'm sure some people that used to post here are still around with a new account. I can't be the only one.

Well, for me. It had been so long I forgot the name, the e-mail, and the password.

The damage has been done. White Noise was a community, not just a collection of threads.

Put links in signatures... "The best thread you've ever viewed!".. etc..

I often forget about white noise...and then remember...and then LOVE.

Okay, I'm drunk. Sorry.

That's it. Rebuilding it is something that's not so easy.

White Noise didn't exist in '07.


White Noise didn't exist in 2007 because people generally accepted it as part of Off Topic. The integrated, somewhat nonsensical Off Topic thrived during 2007.

As soon as White Noise became its own separate entity in late 2008 and only news-related or series topics were allowed in Off Topic, everything came crashing to a halt. Also, a number of members migrated to other places around that time as well. The non-hockey discussion boards were livelier when the forum's various personalities had to interact with one another. Borderline spam, and witty banter were accepted in many of the serious threads, and the forum's "intellectual elites" often participated in the fun threads.

White Noise became a way to segregate the two; for many, it became redundant to be here, as everything here is merely spam.

: D is right. When White Noise was created for the second time in 2008, it was meant as a place to collect all the forum's trash and keep it out of the Off Topic forum. By diluting the types of threads in Off Topic, the community dissolved.

I believe the best way to potentially fix this is to merge White Noise and Off Topic, making sure that the terrible threads are locked, but allowing a bit of leeway.

The greatest segue into a weather segment.

Wow. Yeah, things are pretty dead. just need an active group of 4-5 posters to start the online community feeling again then a scapegoat troller to really band the community together. lol.

I was just thinking about him earlier today. It's a shame he went out as he did. He always had interesting threads and posts in WN.
