    What happened to this place?

    It's an empty ghost town now.

    Re: What happened to this place?

    A combination of things happened.......

    - No new MK game out until probably 2019, since they are working on Injustice 2 for a 2017 release.
    - No new Injustice 2 character info / trolling on Boon's Twitter feed since December 7th.
    - It'll be Christmas in 4 days.

    This, pretty much.
    We have literally nothing to speculate on with MK11 like we did with MKX. Plus, still no word on MKLegacy Season 3. No word on the MKX Tie-In web series. No real word on the MK Reboot Movie (which is already said to be based on the Tenth Tournament so no story speculation or surprises needed). Nothing to go on with the story of Injustice 2 either. We had a pretty active Dishonored 2 thread, but of the 3-4 of us who posted on that, I believe only Commander actually finished the Comics, Book, and Game while the rest of us haven't been able to.

    Maybe when the tie-in comics for injustice 2 start being released, then the thread might become more active. Or we'll just have to wait for May/June of 2018.

    Re: What happened to this place?

    Yeah, I didn't want to keep commenting on that thread as not to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't played through it yet.
    I figure that after March / April, that'll be enough time to be able to speak on any current D2 "spoilery" stuff.
    6 months is a decent time (imo) to give people the chance to get through it.

    As for the message boards on here (in general), yeah, I'm guessing that in January it'll pick up again.

    Re: What happened to this place?

    It'll never pick back up because the site's been abandoned. People come here and see it hasn't been updated in over a year, nobody is going to stick around. Last time the front page was touched, Erron Black's name was still Salazar

    Re: What happened to this place?

    Regarding the moderators and the front page not being updated, yeah, it feels abandoned.
    It feels like Portal 2 levels of abandoned.

    If there's more MK or Injustice news in the future, the treads will pick back up with more users in the future.
    It happened previously with the rumors of a KP3 (which never happened).
    We had more users than we had had in a long time discussing who they wanted for KP3 or if it was even happening.
    That's what I meant.

    I do agree with you and wonder "what ever happened with the TRMK forum, Pat and Jeff?"

    You know how we argue about whether or not a 4-year gap is a good thing for MK?

    This is exactly a case to back up my stance on why it's not

    Yeah, but doesn't the game need some polish?

    Not at the expense of losing fan interest in the product at large.

    Yeah, there probably should be separate teams to take care of Injustice and MK.

    Re: What happened to this place?

    The front page on the other hand is a different issue altogether. Note to Pat and Jeff; it is NOT our responsibility to post the news on the one part of this site people see the most, nor has it EVER been! We've had major MK news come through the wire since the last front page update and be reported in threads, such as port cancellations and new DLC, and not once since the last front page update did ANY of those reports surface on the first page people see when they come to this site for the first time. In many cases, these news reports ended up on threads such as the Mortal Kombat X Media Thread. Does that post show up on the front page where a new user can see it? Absolutely not.

    Re: What happened to this place?

    Well then, could Pat and Jeff at least be bothered to appoint people to make those Front Page news posts if they can't do so themselves? I think @BBBLP volunteered, if I'm not mistaken. Let it be known that it's been nearly two years since the last front page update. Even the KP2 characters are lacking subforums, now that I think about it. And how long did it take for TimeofTheChimps to get permanently banned for spamming porn gifs?

    Everybody has lives outside the forum, but I doubt a few updates every few months is going to suck one's life anyway. What's worse, when a forum regular is being ignored for volunteering when the admins won't budge....it goes to show they don't care for their website anymore.

    Re: What happened to this place?

    Wow...it's worse than I thought.

    I can't even access the goddamn front page news archive because of a website glitch. And here is your photographic evidence to back it up.



    And all I was trying to do is confirm whether or not Injustice coverage made the front page of this site back in the day (the news forum sadly only shows one thread, so I can't use that; I'm willing to bet that aberk81 dude bumping threads in that forum had something to do with that).

    And for the record, Patrick McCarron DID openly ask for Front Page help from anyone willing to volunteer 2 years ago. The fact that @BBBLP's offers to do just that are still being ignored to this day is completely inexcusable for that reason alone.

    Re: What happened to this place?

    Well, in Pat's defence, he's a busy man. I don't know about Jeff, as I don't have him on any social media.

    As said, with no MK games on the horizon, there's just nothing MK related to discuss at the moment, so, most people just dip. I asked Pat to remove my mod status because I wasn't logging in much, so, I felt that holding that title was useless and people who logged in daily would be a better fit. On top of that, being a mod could be so annoying here, as people complained about such petty things...I know being a mod has responsibilities and all, I think I hit about 5, maybe 6, years here as mod, but, damn, some of you need to grow a pair LOL it was worse when we had rep....People complained every single time they got a red square ffs.

    Usually when a new MK game or movie comes out, we get busy (as does any forum based on a particular topic, of course), but, I noticed that, even with the new games, the influx hasn't been as huge as it was in earlier years here. The last influx was fairly easy to monitor. Previous years before that, it was really difficult to go through everything and check it, it was an insane amount of people here.
