I registered in the run-up to London Olympics as well. Most likely April or May 2012

I even remember that period when you joined. :)

Actually, in that same period we had many new Indian users.

I registered after the 2018 Winter Olympics when I was for Tokyo 2020 qualification. Someone had posted the PDFs, so I was saving them to my google drive (essentially taking advantage of their work), when I saw a thread called Biathlon qualification for 2018 Winter Olympics. As I was looking around, I saw user complaining that the IBU made it impossible for Brazil to get any quotas. I said, I think I like these people, so I visited a few more times, and the joined the forum during the 2018 Commonwealth Games :d

I think it's normal there are less new users now than in the past, I think all Olympic sport fans know Totallympics so the only ones who can still register are those who never wanted to register before. And other potential new users are very young users who were too young to be interested in the forum in the past few years.

 

Also, we sometimes have pleasant comebacks, like @rybak

 

I remember the first user who registered on the forum back in March 2011 was @phelps, which I already knew from another Italian forum. It was weird to post initially when me and him were the only 2 users of the forum :d

I get the feeling that a lot my generation could care less about this stuff, but my generation is still highly interested in the Olympics, so maybe will get a few more users in the run up to the games.

I was just looking for something related to olympics. I just saw the name and thought it's a news site about Olympic. Then maybe after a half an hour I decided to register. So I am here.

Similar to what happened to me honestly

Writing on forums has been on a downhill trend for years now. We shouldn't kid ourselves, we are in the minority here. :d Whenever i say to someone "forums", the response is "are you living 20 years in the past". Everything is facebook and instagram now (sadly).

I think Facebook is in the downhill trend as well.

 

I don't think if Totallympics opened 10 years before we would have many more users now. We are a niche forum and social networks are very generalists. The level of quality of sports discussion on Facebook and Instagram is crazy low :d

I think chat rooms have replaced forums too. Discord, WhatsApp, Messenger, etc. are much more popular than forums now, and, at least from my experience running our podcast Discord, they run better and function similarly.
