Does feel sad, i used to spend so much time on here and it used to be my first port of call when logging on but as plenty have said it's not the same. I log on now to read something to get me through the day and there's literally 10 posts. Fashion part of things is as sterile as the general and maybe it is a case of forums dying. I'll always come back and check things though.
Supreme killed fuk.

All this "it's not the same anymore" business is fucking boring. Things change and people move on, get over it already.

I remember the days when anons could post (i probably did) and people were saying how shit it was then too.

The problem is that it's dead. Nobody posts and when or if they do it's often boring. Fuk was the ultimate time killer, now it's not.

Tbh Noble was a big part of keeping alot of the threads going. So since he left us(rip) it was always going to slow down on here. Things will pick up eventually

The forum is only ever as good as the members. I don't think its dead, its certainly slow at the moment but no ones posting or giving opinions, its like people either cant be arsed or are scared of ridicule. The fashion side would always have its ups and downs but the general used to give the place ticking along with peoples tales and news etc but now thats really slowed too. Mistake made a point about people being less open about there lives and I'm definitely in agreement that this is the case. Only have lew to tease about his bleeding bumhole nowadays Sad

Think just a bit more effort needs to be made, specially in the fashion section. Doesnt have to be WAYWT, runway, street pics and lookbooks shots etc can all be upped and discussed more. Its nice to read peoples opinions.

Yeah but certain members are propagating a culture of posting cheap and deliberately offensive insults instead of constructive criticism. Kills the vibe on the WAYW / Last Purchase etc

Noble did a good job at keeping the idiots in check, calling them out all the time and getting them to pipe down. Insults and pointless offensive comments should be stopped and constructive opinions should be voiced its ok to disagree just not with petulant comments.

I remember a month or so back though when the forum in general agreed there was a nasty tone that needed to change and all of a sudden the WAYWT thread became page after page of bum licking comments Laughing out loud was well cringe

Much like when the never used female waywt was just everyone ignoring the gear and more after get your rat out, then it changed to a semi constructive set of comments (with everyone still thinking get your rat out.)

I dont think of myself being on here -that- long but I have witnessed homer growing up online, now I read he's fixing double flush toilets for himself.

homer was Jordan pre Jordan when WAYWT was a Dior dance off with FameZ, Micheal, Henry etc.

This in a nutshell

The old FUK is gone, deal with it. Forums go through cycles with users this is just a down time. If you find it boring post something interesting or do one.

That era spawned that horrible generic indie rock barnet that every kid had where they just grey it and combed it all forward and too one side.

A forum needs a couple of larger than life and/or really funny/smart personalities, adam, noble, amg and a few others, now theyre mostly gone plus there was a whole different community feeling a couple of years back thats pretty much gone. Too many unfunny cunts now abiding to the percieved fuk uniform in a couple of months of registering, read dy et al being smug just for the sake of it. Add to that that early fuk was really interesting fashion wise cause it was a different less mature internet era with pretty much only rthq and later bghd around so it brought together persons/"knowledge" (although i hate that word) not found anywhere else on the net.. Not the boards fault but the internet is different and more marure now and hence the clientele is of a different and mostly less calibre.
