What would it take to revive this place?

A time machine.

The long-awaited Rozen Maiden follow-up anime came and went 4 years ago (!) with no effect (didn't help that the show was lackluster) so what's left is a few nostalgiafags.

Kind of tickles me that the site is still up, but it's basically a museum at this point. Arguably the imageboard format itself is now kind of past its time. 4chan is a shadow of its heyday, too.

Jun grew up, I guess everyone else did too. Except for we few pale revenants...

Well don't forget the people who sometimes stumble across old Anime.

>but it's basically a museum at this point

I think any oldfag that is around at this point should just drop all images he has here for others to pick up, so they don't at least get lost.

we should rather ask how we can revive ourselves. i mean what are we yearning for here? do we want more users? i'd bet that there are around 20 of us ghosts here so the first step should be to check yourself and become active. the topic/theme of the chan and even the ancient technology it runs on are things that we love, but it would hardly attract new people, especially if they are young. the tripfag is right in saying this place is like a museum, but we could turn this into a pleasant museum by POSTING.

It's dead, but its nice to come see the ruins of a once great community. Miss you guys.

Haven't seen you about in a long time, welcome back. I kept the lights on for ya!

Not much left to be posting about I'm afraid. There are too little posters here and way, wayyy to many dead boards. Desuchan's structure works great for a place to discuss hyped and meme worthy series that Rozen Maiden used to be. Sadly, it's not like that anymore.
But I still come every now and then just to get my load of nostalgia. I remember when this place was still alive, and just that happy memory is making it worth lurking and even make nostalgia posts like this one. But I'm afraid it won't get busy again just like that. Not that I don't want it to.

>> No.17581   [Delete]   [Edit]

I've been feeling the nostalgia pretty hard too.

>> No.17582   [Delete]   [Edit]

Your posts made me incredibility depressed...

Sorry, I didn't mean that. Truth be told I'm getting nostalgic way too hard recently, as I recall what this site was like just a couple of years ago, and this makes me horribly sad. Instead of moving on, I just let it keep me bugging by coming back here and reading old threads over and over. I just can't abandon this place, even if it's a shadow of its own past.

But on the other hand I'm just too well aware the chances of it becoming as lively as it used to be are close to zero. Which, of course, makes me even more depressed about that.

It... it's funny, right? To be so obsessed over an imageboard. But for me it's more than imageboard. This community was with me when I was watching RM for a first time. It was there when, before I got me some tripcode, I was most hyped about this series. On top of that I met here the first person from my country's anime fanbase, we even have been sharing a flat for some time. Here on Desuchan is also where I shared all my thoughts, speculations and expectations towards S3, as well as grief after it was over and Tales were cancelled. Then I thought it really is end of the story for this community, and after that I came every now and then just to check site's still dead and sometimes to make a few least significant posts. But as I saw all of this nostalgiafaggotry going on around here recently, something made me stay here for a little longer and recall all good these memories regarding this site. Something broke inside of me. I just had to join this little commotion. Sorry my posts are so depressing for you, but it can't be helped. This is as I see Desuchan's situation right now. It was superb when RM hype was still a thing, but it's gone, most likely forever. But oh believe me, I would do just about anything to make this site lively and relevant again. Only that I can't do shit. All that's left is grief.

maybe this place will give you more comfort..

>> No.17585   [Delete]   [Edit]

I just clicked your link, and it leads to a board with no posts at all on it.
How is that supposed to be a comfort?

>> No.17587   [Delete]   [Edit]

It's actually a search result, and it returns one thread.

Thank you, it's nice of you.

>> No.17590   [Delete]   [Edit]

I still come by and check things out from time to time. Lurking in the shadows....

>> No.17594   [Delete]   [Edit]

There is no revival, but we can continue beating this dead horse.

Well, the site is still up, I remembered this place exists, and your posts are only a few months old so there's hope yet. I had to go through all the boards to see where the discussion was, though.
I'm an old ghost, too. I was always a bit of a lurker, but I was crazy about my waifu Boku. Maybe we can wax nostalgic about our stories and how we became fans of the show? There's a good thread in /ro/ about that.

>there is hope yet

There always is hope. It's a good thing at least a bunch of fans is still lurking here.

I have a present for you - a single place you can check activity on all boards at once.
Behold: https://desuchan.net/cgi-bin/recent.py

Not always, no. One of the site devs hacked it out a couple years ago. Props to the devs!

Id worry more about making it a place we want to post.
I tried reviving activity with /desu/ over on 8ch, riding the nostalgia and exodus waves, didn't yield high results longterm (other than a few Ruskies I met who wont come here)
It's good to have this little haven of oldfaggotry though, it allows me to go somewhere to connect, to taste just a pinch of that old feeling I had when I was young, just discovering desuchan as a newfag. Good times, I miss them, but I'm glad I can at least come back here and see many of those old memories.

What is it with Russians and Rozen Maiden anyway?
