On an outside chance, did you happen to get involved with Playdom's Mobsters back then at MySpace? I did 5 hard years in that game and spent more money on it than I could ever truly justify. That game got freakin ruthless.
Yes, i think you're right. But personally i don't spend time on them anymore and i can't figure the ones who spend their whole day on em out either!
i mean the addiction is getting pretty serious, nowadays when i hang out with my friends, all the heads are in the cellphone and i'm standing there shouting on em! it gets me mad so bad!
This is what PWiz said back when the social side first started slowing, I wasn't convinced that was the reason then, but I think that I am now.
the community has not decreased in size, it has grown quite a lot.
It is member activity on the message boards that has gone down considerably over the last 5-7 years.
