Delaying Inevitable 2017 (Just an idea)
Posted on July 02, 2017 at 17:33

As Jani has noticed, this looks sad.

No surprise I guess, with no new users, 64Digits will stop being active at all some time in future.

While we still have few users, how about we delay the inevitable heat death and make this site look less dead =P

Competitions seem to make 64Digits more alive, so how about we - or me - start another wacky competition.

Because we're lazy or busy or both, instead of making quality competition, let's make quantity competition!

The goal is to produce as much content as possible to fill up that activity bar.

Art, games, random crap, everything is accepted.

Bonus points if you drag some old member from under a rug (where you obviously keep them) and make it join the competition too.

2x bonus for creating "64Digits EXISTS!!!" post on other sites.

No spam, but everything dangerously close to that is accepted?

Time - 1 week.
Reward - no idea. I mean how to measure commitment to this, uh, "competition"?
By +1 pressed on blogs?

ALTERNATIVELY, we could do nothing. Works for me. I'm a lazy and busy introvert, I hate doing things.

OR if this is too innovative (this word haunts me even if im asleep) we can have just typical 64Digits competition.


Alright listen,

I think it's cool you're trying to spark some activity, but telling people to "just be active" via a spontaneous competition has proven to be rather ineffective. Trying to force activity just isn't the way to go at the moment.

If you really want to help, then just continue being persistent with your project updates. I wish more people could discuss their projects and provide updates (like they often do via Twitter), but like I said it can't really be forced.

I'll continue trying to do my part whenever I get creative.

If there's more activity left in the site, it'll come around naturally. We've been having cycles of inactivity-activity for about two years now. This isn't anything new, and we usually rebound from it when people find things to talk about.

When the site is done (I think it'll still be around for another few years), I'd honestly just rather see it have a dignified death at that stage rather than it being kept artificially alive by people who aren't enthusiastic about it any more. Let it be a happy memory than a sad reality. All good things etc. etc.

My attempts to keep things going has only ever stemmed from my own persistent enthusiasm, which is tied to how busy I am irl. I would rather much wait for a good time when I could divert more energy and resources into making something happen than try to push for some arbitrarily set deadline.

I always want to produce more content for the site. Unfortunately, between work, projects and spending time with loved ones, I only have so much free time.

That said, I believe my final post on this site is still a long way out.

Okay, then I'll need 4 Lord souls.

Don't worry, Zuurix, we can keep this place alive together. You'll post Sector Six updates and I'll post some brutal Goofy erotic artwork funny drawings and blogs without content.

and blogs without content

Please don't post for the sake of posting. We had this problem with certain users in the past and the last thing we need is for it to return.

Thank you.

I didn't mean that by "blogs without content", just those blogs that are collections of things that has happened in my life and thoughts on life. Not much content compared to project devlogs, just blogs to start some minor conversations.

@Jani trying to start meaningful conversations is completely fine. I'm just warning you against posting for its own sake, because more often than not they come off as shallow and fail to stimulate activity whatsoever.

I should know, because I've been guilty of this myself.

@Mr. Raccoon Guy
Don't you worry. I'm too lazy to post too often. Or even often enough sometimes. A blog once a week or two, that's it.
