Why has SC.net popularity fallen?

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by BuickGNXkillsALL, Aug 21, 2014.

  1. Why has SC.net popularity fallen dramatically in teh last 8 years?


    Also this should've probably been a poll
  2. If it should have been a poll, what options would you have given us?
  3. the site or the forum
  4. no new members

    new members are run off by baditudes
  5. sc.net (forums) has pretty much become an online hangout for all of us to talk shit and stuff

    New members might come along every now and then but most of them don't stay because there is no way in hell they understand the in-jokes and the 15+ year history that the older members share.

    Like, why the #$%# would any new person want to get involved in this? What could this place possibly offer them? lol
  6. The best part about supercars.net is when you discuss everything that isn't supercars related or even car related. In the past it was crowded in here cause there weren't many car forums now was there? Right now though, you can find a forums all about a single brand or model of a car, it brings people together regardless of what they own. SC.net was a general forums for everything and it's majority of people were pretty much anti-everything when people don't agree with them. There are just too many forums on the net now and if you need advice on a car, you just end up going to the forums where everyone else has the same car you do. IMO sc.net became a place where anything can be discussed and if you want to 'occasionally' talk about cars then you can do that too but it won't be the same anymore.

    This site also isn't user-friendly if you are using a tablet or mobile and I don't think the admins care about it too. Nothing much they can do about it. Not with this current platform.
    And finally, the majority of new members are all here to advertise their shit while the rest don't survive. If I was in charge of things here, I would give the site a full make-over, be up to date with technology, make smilies!! I remember years ago a member here created the current smilies that are being used and nothing new was added ever since! Ok maybe there are more important things besides smilies but it had to be brought up. Nothing new since what now 2003? And where is the link to the smilies?

  7. qft

    + rich only cares about the front page.

    Smilies http://www.supercars.net/faq.html
  9. Solution as always btw, bring back karma.
  10. I still love you guys.
  11. so I guess here are some possible factors:

    1. everyone has grown up: some of us still care about cars etc but only those who either own a sports car or intend to own one
    2. car culture can be found elsewhere as silent said/supraman's post
    3. teens are driving less/decline of automotive culture in general therefore less newer members
    4.frequent crashes/bugs
  12. most of the 'annoying' people that gave this place some character, either left, or got banned.
    Sounded good at the time.
  13. I was always against it. Especially with Luke, P996T and ETF.

    Now Hemi is the only total freak left. A sad situation.
  14. ETF used to wind me up more than anyone else I've come across on this forum.
  15. Wasn't P996T the guy who BSed about what he owns or owned and then experienced a near death situation and confessed to BSing about everything? I remember that guy had 996 in his name.

    Also thanks for the link <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

  19. Hemi scared everyone away <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
    also the confusing and eventful life of Corks seems have become just fine and not particularly noteworthy
    he really had this site going for a bit
    markès rough times were SCnet,s life support
  20. ETF and Panditha = same person?

    I agree.
  21. I thought I would come back and post again but on that day, I read a long post by P996T saying he BSed and thought it a terrible idea to post again lol.
    This account and Turbo Freak are the only two accounts I have ever had on here. I would post again on that account but I forgot what email I used to register
  22. Yeah.
