Why are these games not covered on the forum? I don't think much of 2 or 10 personally, but 3 is considered one of the best and 8 is at least fine. Not sure why 8's called a disaster; it sold a jillion copies and the meme-ish distaste for it was just retroactive groupthink by a bunch of at-the-time-fifteen-year-olds.

I'll have you know that I was 19 when FF8 came out. So there. smile.gif

For the rest of your question, I'll direct you towards this old thread: https://www.cavesofnarshe.com/forums/ipb/in...ndpost&p=205086

I think FFX is phenomenal, but I only need to check the site once a month, so I don't need to see the site traffic metrics to know that sadly traffic is down too far to justify an expansion.

FFVIII is an abomination that makes no sense and punishes you mechanically for using the gifts it gives you. (It does have good points, but I don't those good points overcome the bad.)

Forum traffic is far lower, Kane, but the main site is doing just fine in terms of traffic. But a lack of forum traffic does often mean a lack of available help for me, and it has been a struggle to build new things for various other reasons too.

I check in on CoN several times a week, if not every day. It's always open in a browser tab on my Fire tablet (works great on it, too!). If there's anything I can do to help out the site, just say the word. I double-majored in math and computer science so I have programming in my background.
