Im trying to imagine what it will be like around here once Shenmue I and II HD comes out, and ultimately Shenmue III? Will this place turn into 2002-2006 level of activity again? Any staff have any way to calculate projections?

Hope everyone is well. Subconsciously took a few months away from the internet (mainly forums, social media). I don't know why but it eased a ton of stress.

I still wish my name was purple like it used to be lol :sad:

I don't like to make predictions, but here's a chart plotting forum activity over the last 18 years:

Commenting on how dead this place is seems to be a bi-monthly tradition.

Previously banned member, alt account and the usual shitposting which will not be part of the site.

I can understand you are trying to keep excessive trolling out of the site, but may I ask what is exactly the level of shitposting acceptable in here from now on? The Haruto guy might have been a previous offender but the way I see it now his posts are pretty harmless specially when stacked with his contribution to the gaming section with new trailers and news. So once members are banned, will they be lockout for life? Do we get any warnings? Shouldnt the forum have some kind of guideline for tone and humour acceptable while posting? I don't get why even old time regulars Himuro and Bluecast were banned (or remain so). I'm asking because I'm kinda wary of attempting any lame jokes or even engage on any controversial discussions at the chance of being misunderstood as trolling or creating drama, when there were no such restrictions a year or so ago.

Himuro was one of those old member who's been warned (under previous accounts) over and over again across several years to can it. He's one of those who tends to follow a pattern. The staff knew who he was and could have banned him on the spot, but in the interest of fairness he was left to continue in his new account. He seemed a bit more reserved, so why not?
But his basic patterns started to emerge once again, and the staff has seen where it eventually goes if left alone.
You really have nothing to worry about. This one is more a matter of him having an actual history of shitposting and obnoxiousness that has previously resulted in the forum being... shall we say, offputting. To phrase it mildly. The ban was based on that, and where we could see his current manner eventually leading to. It's just an old dance that nobody feels like going through again.
