My experience on ATS has been molded by times past... I mean, we could judge what to expect on ATS, relative to what time of year or what time of
decade it was.
We knew that in times when school was out, we could expect a different type of thread and reply - based on a more innocent and sometimes naive
understanding that reflects a swing in ATS membership age/experience.
We knew that when political times called for the election process to begin, as a new POTUS is to be chosen, we could expect many more political
charged threads and debate.
We knew that when school is back in session, we could expect to see more 'Adult' threads and replies....
Same with the other seasons or periodic events, such as the World Cup, Winter Olympics, Summer Olympics, etc...
One thing we (or at least me anyway) never knew about, as a result from the changing seasons, the social/political atmosphere, or regional events that
take place periodically, is the time when we should expect no/very little new content.
So what indicators do we need to look for that will signal the time when we should expect little to no new content being added? Would be great to know
this, so I can know better when to waste my time here
Really though, it could be helpful to know this. We would know when to look for new, interesting threads to be authored. We'd also know when to start
digging through archived threads to discover a diamond in the rough, while we wait for a great, new thread to be authored.
