Is it just me or has the community abandoned this website?

I've been noticing a trend around here: There are fewer and fewer comments posted on the majority of articles posted on the front page with each passing week. At least it seems that way. I haven't bothered to get scientific and actually track this shit, but it sure as hell seems like nobody has anything to say around here anymore. Getting 20 comments seems like a miracle for most of the writers not named Jim Sterling. Even Holmes doesn't seem as popular.

Has anyone else noticed this? The staff? The readers? Is there a reason for it? Are the page hits and unique visitors down or up? Has the site become more and more popular at the expense of it's community?

I don't know the answers to those questions. I just know this site still sucks. I wrote a little rant a while back complaining about the lack of personality on this site. I got a lot of comments and was assured things would get better. Guess what? They haven't! Perhaps that explains it.

Or maybe nobody cares about Tony Ponce and all his corny videos and nonsense he posts (especially that fucking "video game rapper"). Or all the other writes who are so boring I can't remember their names. At least I remember Tony's name. He's a good writer who likes corny shit. At least he likes something.

I'm not going anywhere with this. I don't have the time. Just wanted to point out how terribly boring it's gotten around here. Also, I read IGN more than I read Destructoid now. FUCKING IGN. They're boring but they bring a lot more to the table these days than Dtoid does.

I used to love it here. Not anymore. Now I feel out of place when I visit.

That is all. Goodbye for now.
