    I just don't have the time to shit post like i used to. And the same seemingly goes for all other fun people. Everybody is just one post and then i go back to work posting all day everyday. Now if only all AP adults would get unemployed we could really get the ball rolling

    We also haven't reached the point in the Wano arc when people are complaining about it being too long and every plot development becomes controversial. I'll give it another 6-9 months.

    Specifically those that would give the Marines a bad name lol I'm having flashbacks of Darth, AGOG and other members which I can't remember.
    What reason would there be to interfere with a man's departure?

    I'm just a lurker, but I sincerely miss him. I still don't understand why he was banned.

    LOL, out of all the reasons mentioned so far these two were the most reasonable.

    I think it was a bet. He was always putting his account on the line and would create other accounts. Im a lurker usually as well but it was fun to read the threads tbh

I have little insight beyond that, since I don't use any other forums or frequent this place much; I enjoy reading and gaining other insights here just as I have since 2012. That for some, I suppose, may change.
    Nowdays I see the One Piece Reddit and discord servers as viable places to discuss One Piece. I still come here out of nostalgia for VBulletin forum sites, honestly. I'm 30 and have been reading One piece for many years..I'm here for the long haul.

    Most here probably don't even recognize me, though. I have never been as active here as I was in my days on Saiyanisland.. jeez, THERE'S a throwback.

    I just recently started reading the forums here again. I haven't really posted since last year. I too noticed the lack of activity. Normally each Chapter thread would already have 11+ pages by the time I logged in, but as others have pointed out, I was able to realize most discussions happen in the Spoiler thread.

    Anyway, I still lurk here often because some of the most engaging debates I've seen were on this site. And yeah, I am still fond of the old school forums format. I've been here since like 2010, but I forgot my original account info.

    The One Piece Reddit kinda sucks though. They upvote dumb stuff and downvote every opinion different from the mass (but all Reddit is like that though)

    I remember the time around the Chapter 755 (Man's World) to be the most severe example of that. It felt like dozens of people got banned, while many older members turned away in disgust and/or boredom.
    What were these people smoking? One Piece's socio-political tone hasn't changed an ounce.

    Well i mean it could as easily be some dudes who grew into a certain political mindset and in turn started reading things into it that fit whatever it is that outrages people these days

    That sounds like a pretty accurate read. Also a really funny one for various reasons.

    While it's fair to say Oda is not especially good at handling his female characters and never has been, the manga's hard anti-imperialist, open-borders political stance and good faith (if flawed) attempts to include queer characters are consistent on both sides of the timeskip. My understanding as that the series' philosophy as a whole falls at least a small way to the left of Japan's dominantly conservative culture. That hasn't changed one bit over the years, even if it comes across as less of a contrast to the dominant narrative from a western perspective. Chapter 755 is my personal least favourite chapter, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that, but it's the same crap we always had from Sanji before the timeskip. I roll my eyes and tolerate it, same as I did with Sanji's Kalifa debacle.

    I think any change in readership/user numbers here is mostly the fault of centralised discussion forums like Reddit, with, of course, something to be said for the high barrier of entry set by the series' length.

    Is this true?!

    And Franky isn't aware of all the damage the Sunny has taken right? Or at the very least hasn't had a chance to repair it.
    Folks who read One Piece... Just better people. \_(ツ)_/
