I don't know. I just don't know.

Many people have been quitting left and right. The forums are going on a snowball effect downhill, is it really worth it at this point? I have said in the past that I would remain here forever, but would it really be worth it? I don't know. People are leaving quickly, this forum is not what it used to be that's for sure. I'm no longer interested in mlp, and my interest in the fandom is quickly fading as I have found other people over on discord, discord is instant, the forums are sluggish, slow and a burden on me. Mlp to me is just a joke, I don't want to watch it and I won't bring myself to watch it, my interest in it has lead to many mistakes in the past and I do not want to repeat that. Most if not all of my friends are on discord so I wouldn't really mind leaving this place, but the memories still remain. I won't be revered and respected like others have, I was jealous of others success in that I lost sight of the fact that it doesn't really matter any more, nothing really does on here at least for me.

Last dance, final chance...ring in my mind, those words.

The sun is setting, will it rise again? Alas, nothing lasts forever that much is true. Consider this my last week of consideration before I make my decision and fly away.

I hope you decide to stay, my friend! :rarity: I would give you the same advice that I've given others before. If you don't enjoy the forums right now, why not just take a break? Or alternatively become less active but still visit (I had to do this myself to some extent for a couple of days, though I'm not sure if anyone really noticed :P). Leaving permanently isn't something you need to do. I can understand where you're coming from – the forum is about a subject you're not interested in anymore. But there is so much more to the forums than that. Even as a brony, I probably talk more about other stuff here than MLP (or at least as much)...

It's natural, most people will leave at some point – but I don't think it's something that needs to be done. I don't think I've ever left a forum myself – in practice I have done it but not formally. Even with forums that I no longer go to, I occasionally visit and if I find something interesting, I might even post once in a while. Though to be honest, even if you were to leave, nothing would really stop you from coming back later if you felt like doing so! :kindness:

Is it only me or I think I joined this forum lately? Since I'm discovering how awesome the forum is and almost instantly after I see people saying "this forum is not as in the past", "this forum is not as big, as it used to be". Well, it's a natural order of things, but I, personally, fell, that if most people are giving up on something and you have enough determination, you will break the want of giving up too, it's pretty satisfying to go with a small group of the "strongest", who "survived" everything, what fate had to offer. So the MLP Forums can be still supported and sometimes get back from the darkness, yes? I suppose, this is only my opinion.

People are leaving left and right, heh... All I can really say is that the choice to leave is yours and yours alone. We can't influence you on what you want to do because in the end, it's what you want to do. It would be a burden to you if we influenced you to stay.

I can't fathom not liking MLP. I love cartoons in general, but MLP is so awesome. What else would you do with your life?

I don't really watch MLP these days either but I still feel that the community here is something that is quite hard to replace.

Yeah people are leaving sometimes, but new people are also joining and some of the older members are sometimes returning.

Change is constant in an environment like this and new waves are always coming and the old ones settle down. Sometimes it can be good to take a break and reclaim yourself  if that is necessary. 

One good thing is that all the good time here you've spent was real and the connections and bonds can last a long time even after everyone has left memories and bonds I think are the most important things you can have in your hand in a place like this

I know members leaving isn't encouraging, but if everybody will be thinking like this, it probably won't be worth that. :sunny:

You seem to have a strong view on the situation, so I suppose my words won't change anything...

I'll respect your decision, regardless of what you'll choose, though know, that you're always welcomed. I wish you all the best.

I wish for you to stay, but at the end of the day it's your choice.

I understand how you feel here. I considered leaving a few months back, as I was also jealous of others' success, but I ultimately decided to stay on board. I feel that this is a little corner of the internet, where I can just shoot the breeze and unwind. I'm not sure if that's how you feel, but I if I wasn't actually enjoying myself here, I would've left a long time ago  

Good luck with your decision and know that I will support you regardless.

For some reason mentions are refusing to work for me, I don't know really know why one works but then I go to mention someone else and it just completely fails to work.

I roleplay with friends, I myself can't bring myself to watch it anymore, its just not something I like anymore, personally. I don't like ponies anymore, I never was a 'brony' in my view, never liked that word. Never ever.

For anyone else reading this I probably won't be quitting forever, though my activity in this site in general has severely decreased, it's no longer what it used to be..

I got a new computer, so I can try. :mlp_smug:

Good, make a discord account, post your discord tag here (the thing with # (numbers) after it) and I will add you, then I will go tell others about it and then they will add you, alright?
