I don't know then, I sort of remember the times when I would find tens of new pages in the GD (or the OTT) after I woke up in the morning, but it still wasn't very active when I was (8 am - 3/4 pm my time).

That, or my memory is just really bad.

Yeah, even the GD had been really quiet until recently, guess all the new changes to everything has renewed enough activity for there to be more posts than when you left for the night, hahah.

  • Most of the active packs in PC are normally made up of the same groups of people these days, plus a few new people that never seem to stay long. So it's kind of hard finding a pack that suits my needs and has almost totally new people [i.e: That I haven't met before]. Packs rarely stay together for long, maybe a few months, but it's been like that since around when I started stalking the forums. Although Pack Central will never be the same as back then. There were so many packs that it was hard to stay on the first page [which is how I used to detect a inactive pack from a active one] but now... Everyone could vanish for three months and it would still be on the first page, since only a few packs actually post on their topics now days.

    I kind of regret not signing up on WQ when I was only nine; when I first heard of the game, back when the community was buzzing.


    I haven't been on Multiplayer for a few months. I should check it out and report back to this topic with my findings. c:

My opinion on the participation is split.

On one hand there are lots of times during the day when very little is going on and it gets a little bit boring. This may be because I'm remembering back to 2010-2012 when I was first active on here and there were a lot more people to be seen.

On the other hand I feel that the lack of people creates a stronger community of close knit people. There are still quite a few active people I don't see too often, but for the most part I know a lot of the people who are around a little bit.

It is school time for many of the people who come on here and that probably has a small part to play in the decline. With any luck there will be a lot of people coming back on in the summer and with the release of the tablet version.

  • I wonder if people still use massive wolves, that there are still many "lily, alas, pure white pelt, icy blue eyes, very pretty, needs meat" and such....

    Servers:
    HumnPowersRP x2
    PackRP [with a name; two-person-only]
    TeenPowersRP
    WolfPackHunt
    PowerPackRP
    LonersONLY
    PackVsPack

    SAVINGBFFONLY
    A bunch of servers named after random people/stuff/places, etc.
    ... And a inappropriate server. o-o

    I already notice that there aren't as many "WolfRPs" as there used to be, nor "WarriorsRPs"
    I guess they went out of style or something
    Actually, there aren't many servers at all

Join humanpowersrp

I agree with you, Sean, on the smaller community thing. I like smaller communities better for that reason. I've gotten to know more people this time that I've been back than before.

Glad someone agrees with me.

I do wish that we'd get a couple handfuls more people. Reduce the amount of idle time get a little more conversation going on the GD and elsewhere.

This is what I usually see.... although not all white wolves with blue eyes are named Lilly and I've never seen SAVINGBFFONLY but I have seen Saving that has only 2 players...

I also agree with the smaller community thing, you do get to know people better.

Wolfquest is not as active as it used to be. I wish Cana never made that announcement, that's when I noticed the decline. Hopefully during the apps reign it will pick up if they notify everyone, thats a way to get it out.

Well, if Cana hadn't made the announcement telling everyone what was going on, we'd be swamped with questions about when the next episode of WQ will come out, suggestions for the next episode, etc., not to mention people probably just guessing that funding had run out and the team wouldn't be looking for more. I think the decline would've continued, honestly, because of the lack of any official word on the status of WQ. Obviously I can't predict what would have happened, but, that seems likely to me at least.

I deeply agree. There would probably be an activity decline anyway.

I wish there was more activity in multiplayer that had to do realistic wolf packs instead of the ones with talking wolves in alpha, beta, etc. ranks and all that miscellaneous stuff....
