@madpierrot: Well, sincerest apologies if my comment at least came off as snooty. I certainly didn't mean it that way. I'm very happy that Giant Bomb is still a thing and that tons of people still frequent the site daily! I'm mostly envious. I was a daily watcher for around 7 years. And as I said in my post, it's really nothing to do with the site, it's more to do with me and my changing interests. I don't consider myself better than people who still watch the content here at all. Nor do I think the "site has gotten worse".
With all that said, I think it's fair for anyone to comment on however much content they do or do not consume right now as that was the very title of the thread.

I fell off completely like a year ago. A year before that it was the occasional premium video and the beastcast. Up till then I watched/listened to stuff pretty religiously. 2011-2018ish I kept up with like 75% or more of the content on the site. I keep telling myself to come back and check things out, but usually when I pop on the site I just check the forums briefly and close the tab. I think the biggest issue for me is... well me. I don't play anywhere near the amount of games I did years ago. Usually just a handful a year that I stick to and sink a bunch of time in. So I'm not super interested in video game news in general. Hopefully things are still going strong on the site! Even if I don't visit much anymore I always wish the best of luck to everyone here! :)

It's all a little sad. These forums were really the first form of internet interaction I had as surprising as that might sound. I used to pop on the site every day for years. Got to recognize a lot of names and avatars in that time. I took a break for a while a little over a year ago, and after the recent posts were taken off the front page in the new site iteration I stopped browsing the forums almost altogether. (I'm sure it was for a reason, but it's a shame it was removed.) I take a look like once a month now and the thread posts always seem sparse.

As others here have said, it's not that the community is dried up or anything, people have just moved to other venues. I mainly stick to discord now and the amount of people in the unofficial servers is booming. Even if the forums disappear entirely one of these days I'll always remember them fondly.

There were a number of us who couldn't look at the white text without it hurting our eyes. Thankfully the devs adjusted it and it's much better now. Sadly a white theme is but a dream.

Yes, it's 2tb a month, so I rarely need to worry about it. The speed is super unpredictable though. Sometimes I think they throttle the speed when I'm using it a lot. I can go from 250mb down/ 35mb up (on a great day) all the way down to 2mb down/ 500kb up (which then becomes unusable) on a bad one. Mediacom is super unreliable, but it's the best option in the area.

Got a Ps4 pro less than a year ago. Have a ton of games I've yet to play too. So, not particularly. It is cool to see what the industry does with new consoles though. That part is exciting.

Hopped on Gb today to check out this forum thread again and to my surprise the text has been updated! Thank you so much for such a small, but meaningful adjustment. I can actually read on the forums again. Looking forward to when this readability update (hopefully) goes live for the wiki and article text as well. Big props to the dev team here on Gb.

@kurryrush Indeed there is. Take a look at the original post.

I also updated the list to include more current invite links and some of the newer servers that have popped up.
