  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • Tuxedo Mark: The only "local" comic shop within "reasonable" distance of my house is 18 miles away, in the next county. Yeah, no, I'll continue getting my comics digitally.
    May 06, 2018, 07:39:36 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Don't forget to pick up the FCBD issue of DIE KITTY DIE: I Love You to Death! by Dan & Fernando from Chapterhouse Comics! Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

Why almost everything new members leave the forum after 1-2 weeks?
Many of these members are interesting and very active here.  :(

They comment on every thread of which there aren't very many and get bored and leave. This forum doesn't have a huge amount of action or differing opinions.


I noticed we can't keep kids here who all seemed to get bored and leave without warning. I'm starting to think they're all the same kid.


I'm looking for a new forum myself that discusses other comics besides Archie.

daren

Why not discuss other comics here in general comics?  :)

invisifan

While I agree with that in general, it does limit many things to an Archie perspective...

I signed up for this site about 1 1/2 years ago. Used to lurk a lot, there were a lot of great old threads to read. I forgot about my account after a short while due to being busy with my new job.


I came back about 2 weeks before all the data was deleted and posted a few times. There was a certain ignorant poster who seemed to infiltrate every innocent post and seemed to want to argue about everything. Made me reluctant to post or share an actual opinion and I'm probably not the only one who felt that way. Luckily that particular person no longer posts here. News of the Riverdale show resparked my interest in this forum, but I'm still surprised at the negativity regarding the show but it's alright.


Anyway, the data deletion itself was sort of a punch in the gut. Now those old threads I liked lurking are gone and it's hard to stay interested in "what did you buy today?" sort of clunky topics and clunky gigantic signatures. I feel like there's a large gap between what ultra-fans and casual-fans want to talk about, if that makes any sense. I agree forums are old news: pretty much every forum I go to is dead except for the imdb.com main forums. However I think a forum like this dedicated only to Archie is unique and I wish this forum could become active again. I wasn't and haven't been here long but I feel like I missed the glory days of this place.

I spent everyday on this site for 3 years. I joined April 30 2013. I missed the old site. I had so many good threads. What did you do today? Show us your Archie collection & What comics & books are you reading? The one about my family & I moving. But I restart a few of them. I was very close to 7,000 posts. It was a big part of my day. I had so many buddies. We all talk about Archie comics & our lifes. It was a great community. But we all there & we have a chance to make the site better than it was before.

Yes, I have noticed that.  It also happened on the old forum. Most of those members are young, in their teens or very early 20's and maybe a couple are children. They comment a lot, their post count goes very high and then all of a sudden they vanish. I guess, they just lose interest and move on. But new members will always come.

This. Big time. Too much superhero garbage out there to the point these basement-dwelling dweebs don't even have a life.  >:(

Or 'What kind of candy bars do you like' 'What's your shoe size'.... Y - A - W - N  :P

More interested in discussing 'actual Archie-related stuff'  :smitten:

I think you'll find that it's true for most forums that the activity there reflects what there is currently to talk about, about (in this case) what's happening in the world of Archie Comics. Since ACP isn't publishing a lot of titles right now, that means most of the conversation is going to be about the New Riverdale comics. When new Archie Horror issues come out, there will be some discussion on those, as well. It seems that there aren't a lot of heavy digest readers, or much to discuss about them that generates a lot of common interest apart from the new lead 5 page story. Some of those are notable, and some less so. Just in general, the lack of new stories coming out at the rate of a trickle tends not to generate much excitement. Apart from that there's Riverdale, the much-anticipated (by some) and much-dreaded (by others) TV pilot. Right now though, every time they dot an i or cross a t, it seems to generate some posting.


I wish I'd been around when they were still publishing most of the classic Archie titles including Archie, Archie & Friends, Betty, Betty and Veronica, Betty & Veronica Spectacular, Jughead, Life With Archie, Veronica, etc. As it was I showed up after Kevin Keller and Life With Archie had ended, and the end for Archie and Betty and Veronica was only a year away or less. I still get all the digests, and probably will at least until they stop running new stories in them (after which I might cut back to just the two B&V digests).

Original Sin

I had a great time on this forum 2011-2013 (or was it 2014?) .

irishmoxie

I tried starting Jem and the Holograms and Lumberjanes threads on the old forum and not too much interest there.

irishmoxie

I really think forums are old news. I can only stay active by using the tapatalk app because it's just cleaner and easier to read while I find going on from a computer to be to messy looking.

Also the active members here are really hardcore fans and most might come check it out but don't indulge enough- or merely just forget to come back.

What fan communities do you think are still booming? I'm on Twitter a bit more now and talk to some of the comic book artists and writers. Are there any other places people discuss comics?


You can use Tapatalk but you miss out on the Shoutbox which is sometimes my favorite part of this forum.
