Is this site dead?

Post by JohnnieSockran » Fri Sep 27, 2019 11:38 am

I really hate TLS and don't wanna go back there, but it seems like there really just isn't any traffic on this site anymore and others have likely gone back to TLS

On-topics and off-topics have fairly different traffic.

Totally agree: I hate the new re-design. Does seem like their traffic is down too.

I guess if we hold out maybe each year we'll get more and more traffic with the new crops of law students.

This site is dead because all of the people who casually use TLS don't know about this site.

TLS is dead because that site went to shit.

It'd be ideal if there's some way to get the casual TLS users (who are purely on-topic posters) to come here, but how? Posts referencing this site get taken down ASAP on TLS. Casual users also check TLS once every few weeks, so any notice would have to be up for a long time.

JFC TLS has so many ads now, even auto-play video ads? Lmfao.

I feel like posters or flyers or something in law schools would be ideal. I was always surprised how many of my classmates (and now my colleagues) had no idea about law school forums.

TLS was basically my guide to admissions, law school, OCI, and then kinda died when I was a junior associate.

I never visit TLS anymore, except I did a few days ago because I was googling how to write an author's name in a law review article citation if they're a Jr. (does the 'Jr." go after the last name or between the middle initial and the last name?). A TLS thread from 2010 came up, which unfortunately did not conclusively answer my question.

We don't really have threads like that.

The answer is more on-topic posting but tbh that's a real burden

Easy and unpoliced anon posting would help get those juices flowing but that's hard to do

You can ask a mod to change your username for you.

i didn't know anyone in irl considering law school and tls was a great source of unfiltered un-sugarcoated advice.i couldn't imagine going through lsat for those uninitiated to those kinda of tests without it. still can't.

particularly loved that people would argue strongly but still somewhat fairly backed up with data. and there were always seasoned contributors who would help ensure that unsubstantiated claims were challenged. don't see those high quality on-topics anywhere now.

lots of solid posters then on on-topics. remember there was one named pneumonia, brut, tls1776, tomwatts, clydefrog and so on. plus manhattan lsat qa threads along with very active spivey's.

Yeah I don't know, I used to check here once a day or so (more if there's a thread i'm actively posting in), but find myself checking maybe once or twice a week now, if that, and often finding little to nothing of interest. (I don't really participate in the off-topics, where most of the activity is.)
