    It's very hard telling. I think it will in time. I have been here for some time, and seen it go up and down a few times. As long as the new owner sticks around, it should come back.

    I'm seeing a lot of new accounts, but none of them talk much with like one exception.

    We've been getting more people. It's happening slowly, but it's definitely happening. When we first came back I could usually count the number of people on my fingers. Now we're easily getting several people on at once. Repopulating the forums isn't going to be something that happens overnight. It will happen, but the site's only been back up for a few months.

    Very true. Hopefully this time the spam can be kept under control. The spam bots killed the forums the last time it was active here.

    I kill 'em when I see 'em. Doing so is very cathartic, so report any spam messages you find.

    Like Sebastian said, it will take time.
    We're working mostly on the main website, a major design change is coming up to make it suitable for mobile and tablets too.
    The site has received a lot of search engine penalties over the years, which resulted in a huge traffic drop. We're fixing errors and modernizing the site and can already see traffic stabilizing.
    When the main website is healthy again the forums should follow along.

    Thanks, our new forum software seems to take care of some spam registrations and a few posts, and our two Moderators per the logs seem to be filling the gaps inbetween. Ideally, though, we'd like to focus Moderators on regulating rule breakers instead of spam bots...so we may work on our SPAM filters :)

    Honestly, folks, the site was down for a really long time and before that, it was overrun by spambots. A lot of people left without the intention of returning.

    To put a better comparison so people would understand where this site is sitting at atm, Vanilla WoW and WoW from now. Same thing with this site.
