Is it me or has the vine slowed down a bit compared to a few years ago?

It has been slow for a while, but the site switchover really killed activity.

@armistice: wasn't aware of a switchover since I just came back recently. Maybe it will pace up then especially with all the hero hype that's going on.

This is probably the single ugliest redo of the site, and the excessive restrictions on new accounts (five posts a day for *five* days!?) along with the gutting of a crap ton of alts has seriously killed activity in the RPG section. The long, slow entrenchment of the old elite and unwillingness to let things move the metaplot forward also had something to do with it.

I doubt you'll ever see the days of constant RPing with at least one in character post a minute in the forum ever again.

The Vine itself is overall less lively than it used to be.

As long as some old farts are still there I suppose I'm ok with it :)

Anything is possible, but I would not hold my breath

The new account BS is all thanks to the one time rash of spam accounts, hard to blame he site there as it really only hampers the RPG section pretty much.

While I have never been an alt-o-holic, I can see how losing a bunch of them could be maddening as hell.

I agree on the activity side also, if I were to look at the section from the perspective of an outsider, it does not look very inviting. Either a ghost town or 3/4 of the activity has nothing to do with RPG itself. If today was the first time I checked the section out I would never have even bothered.

And then they found ways around the "restrictions" anyway. Meaning that they're ultimately pointless.

But instead of getting rid of them they made them even harsher for...some reason.
