Is Xtratime forever?

As I sit here drinking my coffee and listening to Mogwai, the question arose...

ToniSamp once claimed XT is forever and at the time I definitely and defiantly agreed. Burgeoning discussions, football and non-football, then the entrance of chat brought another angle. This was 5-6 years ago, what about now? Probably not. Posters have left, the fiasco last year with the passwords, generational differences, the Snapchat generation. Will XT-ers resemble the Amish metaphorically in the near future? Has XT done enough to echo in eternity?

Has the last stand of XT already occurred, or is it yet to come? Perhaps with a Ceasar figure it's possible. Who could that figure be?

I'm genuinely surprised that we're all on here like a bunch of dinosaurs using an antiquated form of social media communication via a Message Board.

Seriously. Message boards are so 2001.

The only message board in the world where people post shit with aliases is Reddit. And even that is its own sort of mass niche.

PS. I love XT.

The forum just seems full of Eastern European pricks talking absolute guff amongst themselves.

RIP XT.

Once I looked at the chat, again just EE pricks talking shit.

Gone the days of Ard, Willy, cam, GR! et all.

No direspect to the members of chat (most of them have been fun), but the real loss are the members who told and taught us their point of view on football in the forums. They will come back anyway, I know it. Unless they are dead.

As long as XT is operational I'll be here. Even though I no longer dedicate a huge part of my time to it. I at least spend 30 mins a day here.

I think that's the same for most people here.

I don't believe at all that new social media destroyed this forum. I'm on many other forum that are just as active as before. XT could grow again if there were people dedicated to do it.

The password shenanigans put the final coffin in the nail.

Before that many forums like the Turkish forum will still fairly active. As soon as the password fiasco happened the forum died an absolute death. Wasn't even averaging a post a day.

People could have made new account and then they would have been merged or given a new pw for their old account.

Also i dont think Xtratime is forever if new posters dont come in and activity doesnt blossom.

"Your password not working and then you give up" doesn't make sense to me, we seem to be over rating that. I know xt is not a bank site or amazon or something but if my password stops working I don't just walk away. But any way, whatever that was it is too late now...

I think that episode accelerated the process. Most of people who left were people who would have left the forum in a month, one year, a few years. They just caught the opportunity for leaving in that exact moment "oh well, if I can't log in then **** it!". Obviously there is a big difference in terms of impact on the forum between losing a big amount of members in a few years and losing all of them in one day.
