A lot of people are saying con is dead but I really enjoy it and I feel like there's a pretty good fan base overall

Yeah, most of the other forums started at the same time as CoN are long gone, but people like myself keep coming back to CoN. So, how can people say it's dead?

The only thing that's dead here is aeris. Oh wait - that's still considerered a spoiler even though the game was released 200 billion years ago? That's what I thought.

1) It wasn't a lot of people, it was me.

2) I said it loud because I was drunk.

3) Good one about Aeris being sooooo very dead.

4) I am sorry for saying it now because reasons

EDIT: But I still can't get into chat. :\

At the risk of getting off topic, I gave a couple suggestions on how you could get into chat in this post: http://www.cavesofnarshe.com/forums/ipb/in...ndpost&p=208418

I haven't prioritized fixing the links on the site yet.

Apparently, CoN almost died without you! So, we're glad you're back!

I used to live on this site as teenager. Still have many fond memories. I am not 100% sure why I picked a fat green demon as my screen name but I have no regrets. I'm glad to see some familiar screen names still frequenting the site. I (perhaps like other users) was a bit of an outcast in high school and this forum was my safe haven. I made many close friends who I've never met and I hope they are all still doing well. Anyways, you guys rock! Keep being awesome!!

Doesn't look dead to me. I rarely visit these days though. I don't have enough time for videogames anymore cry.gif but l am pretty happy that the caves are still alive and well.

I think it has to do with the fact this site has a tight knit group, regardless of how old the games are, we make them matter and still try to find new things to talk about.I haven't been here that long, and ff4 ff5 ff6 and 7 still gets occasional conversations, and I occasionally will post a thread about a new game I try out.

Not saying it has to happen but has it ever been thought of to try and expand into the other final fantasy's? Just wondering. But yeah. Site is not dead.

I actually asked ranger that and he said he had no plans for expansion.

Or, more accurately, I made this post last summer.

That info is still true, but we have slowed down considerably because the two main people working on it (me and Death Penalty) have been crushed under the weight of moving across country (me) and teaching the snotty youth of America (DP).

If this place is even close to dying, I'm sure there are several folks around who will gladly use an Elixir to get it back on it's feet.

In the untimely event of a knockout, I also assume the Phenix Downs would fly in from several directions simultaneously.

We may be slow, but we ain't dead. I ain't anyhow, despite some of the better attempts of the youth of a certain large east coast public university!

Well, CoN seems more active to me right now and over the past weeks or so than it has since I joined...last year? Maybe?
I blame the FFVII remake.
