Haha, wait, huh?

I agree also with mgoose about how it may seem "intimidating" to post as a newcomer. Then again, those newcomers that take offense and run away never to be seen again may not be right for this forum either way. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, however harsh it may be. I do however think that we could maybe lighten up on people first posts. That's what I observe runs people away the most is getting their early posts bashed to smithereens; after all, don't they say it's important to make a good first impression? When they see that in their early posts they think that's just everyone being mean to them and think that's how HF is. All in all it's not really anyone here to blame; someone running off because people here didn't like their first fit pics may not be here for the right reasons anyways.

Most non shitty forums will tell shitty newcomers who don't bother to see how the forum runs, or read the rules to fuck off.
I don't think it is anyone's responsibility to hold their hands while they pee.

^^That is true, but if somebody ask your opinion on the street about something, you (I mean you as everybody of course) will be more polite. The internet make people a bit more impatient I guess.

Ross we are in need of a TEE or two...

He probably did account for a 30% drop in posts count when he got banned.

Don't know about nice but he most definitely was a boy. Acted like a 5 year old for fuck's sake.

when i first joined HF i was scared as fuck to post, hence my join date and when i did actually start posting.

its not as fun to read like it used to be, tho.


edit: must add that when i am on other forums now, i look for a +/- button or rep box...i like it, a lot. its so much easier than making a pointless post that says:

ITA.

I really think this is part of it and it's one of the reasons I always advocated (and when it was my ability to do so) enforced a strict respect policy....

I find it's been slower than usual, too, especially for me since
a) I don't post in waywt because of my age (and job) - it'd be sort of ridiculous...
and
b) I don't do live chat because my baby won't let me do stuff for more than 2 minutes at a time and also my hubby would laugh at me.
Sales in the mall have also been slow; I remember, when I first joined, you had to "snatch" a pair of jeans the moment they were put up for sale or they'd be gone!
However, this is still the one and only forum I frequent. All the others I've tried are either too big and you never get to "know" anybody - never talk to the same person twice, or they're too small and there are only 4 posts per week by the same 2 people...
Can we revive HF? That would be great. I've been trying to start more posts lately (even dumb ones, I admit) for that reason.

HF has definitely decreased in popularity, a lot of the older members who used to contribute a lot to this forum have gone and moved on and pretty much most the ladies moved to DNA and the newer members dont know the forum as well as the older ones so its harder to contribute things i think, maybe it will pick up again at some point... I hope, I miss the old days though

Could it not be denim loosing ground? HF is only relevant as long as 'designer/ premium/ whatever you want to call it' jeans are popular. A year ago, there was little dispute between what the popular brands were. Now, we have less of a focus on denim, and we have a whole bunch of new labels joining the scene. HF is still structured the same way, with diesels, rocks, sevens, trs, etc, and most of those sub forums are now pretty much dead.
I agree. People in general have less disposable income now then they used to and they're not as likely to drop $200 on a pair of jeans.

Fewer people into premium denim mean fewer people searching the web for premium denim which means fewer hits on Honestforum.

I knew HF was doomed when there was no panty raid thread this year.

I just joined there too, so I'll have to try to keep up with both now. Good luck to me. I'm sure I'll repeat myself a lot.... LOL

Also, he was from Germany, and it's really hard to write in a foreign language (and he did so very well) and in a different cultural context without sounding a little different from how one really is. believe me, I should know....

^^^^ People are not tolerant around here sometimes, I think. Not singling anyone out.
Just like a real life community, not every single person is going to get along with every other single person.
Jeez.
Fortunately I still have a way to talk to absent friends from HF.

^ you better not leave, or I'll become the oldest female on HF LOL

I won't leave unless I die or something.
