The game can be popular without the forum being huge. Also most people who register here never actually post.

I'm suprised A:MR Isn't more popular.
The fans of the original game are such a small market It shouldn't matter if they like the game or not and A:MR is unique enough to rival a lot of games which are doing well.
The game can be popular without the forum being huge. Also most people who register here never actually post.

Interesting you two mention this. My opinion lies somewhere between these two replies. Though I don't think that Bishop was referring to the forum's size when mentioning the popularity of the game, she/he does have a point with the game not attracting more fans, seeing as how it was undeniably of pretty good quality.

This of, of course, doesn't mean that said people do/need to dwell on this forum.

Now, I'll go a little off topic in this thread, but I feel like writing right now, so fuck every one of you.

I have two reasons for not popping by as often...

1. Whenever I return, I find myself becoming outrageously angry at how the so-called “sequel” turned out. I’m not going to go into why, because as the above indicates—I will rant.

2. For last few weeks, I’ve been automatically redirected from the homepage and the forums to some “celebrity sex scandal” site—which my AVG promptly blocks and then steers me away. It seems to be random, and it’s only on AmericanMcGee.com. I tried searching on Google and all the AmericanMcGee.com search responses were filled with both random posts that I recognized as coming from our forums, and then some posts that were intertwined with Viagra ads.  Creepy crap.
My computer is fine, so I decided to write it off as a spam attack.

But yeah, that’s why I haven’t been back.


IDK if you've done this yet, but why not create a thread and we can discuss it. It could be interesting.

Lets try this from a different angle.
Why are so many of the new members not posting?
Would it help if the forum had a chinese mirror forum?
Mabe we could play mini games on here like BHB?

I have lurked here for years, joined when somebody linked to my youtube channel discussing Madness Returns, and then continued lurking for a few more months. I got a new job last fall and I've been extremely busy ever since. I stopped posting on most of the forums I do post on. I never posted in the new discussion because there was a bit of Alice backlash and I had actually enjoye the game somewhat. I remember there being a lot of drama, though.

I'm back now because I'm finally getting my life on track again after spending six months working 60 hour weeks.

Sounds healthy.
It's good to see people keeping themselves busy.

Is this something noteworthy or new? It's not like anybody is going to die in real life because the forum they are going to died, too.


Except for the "Snape kills Dumbledore"-suicide guy. Not a parallel case, but you get the point. That one was an idiot.

In my opinion its more of the over bearing of trolls and the fact that most of us elder members talk through facebook now.

Yeah exactly. Why have public conversations which 1000+ people can see rather than somewhat more private conversations else where.

The forum died down because A:MR was released. If there was a Alice 3 announced the forums will be packed again.

I never appreciated the spam collecting nature of facetube and I don't know if it records conversations like a forum but I like to see a place with history.
there's also the obvious fact that all of the people registered here are already interested in American Mcgee's stuff and that's a much better filter than randoms listed on all your friend's address books.

Meh. Depends on your privacy settings. I'd rather share stuff with people I vaguely know irl then with people who I don't know and only have tenuous links with regarding a bloody video game.

The rant part. Could provoke a nice discussion for all of us.
