Branching a little further, not only does it seem like the forums are in a downward spiral, but the org as a whole. I can't really properly vocalize how it feels to me, but a wasteland, as beo mentioned, is pretty accurate. It seems like there are dozens upon dozens of videos, threads, etc. that are just pure junk, and very rarely is there something nice to show up within those. I don't know if this is just a local issue either, because as another example, I've been always anticipating the Akross entries and winners because it's usually really solid stuff, but from this year... I dunno, just a handful really.
I don't like to see it, but I think it's an inevitable depression.
