I think a lot more could be done on the gaming side of the forum. Not sure what though but it is a area that the forum has never really tried to draw from. Computers and gaming go hand in hand and the place has never really had a large gaming section. For years it never had one at all because David had his separate gaming forum and wouldn't allow it.

Adding more threads and keeping people talking is all well and good, but that's best accomplished alongside other things to drive more people to the site in the first place, who will then add more threads and start the process you describe. You've also got the problem that lots of threads started from the same core group of people looks artificial, like we're trying to show there's more activity than there actually is..
What I said was correct, that's why back few years ago their was more people and decent threads to go and contribute to because theirs people talking their, this brings many people together, i don't come here anymore, wanna know why? boring threads..exactly what needs to be done

didnt you get banned several times though? and still came back, even under different names? either you were doing it just because you could or because there is still some potential in CF.

Well, at least he's doing a bit more help and is way cooler than he used to be. If it was to be Trivium Nate, then it's another story...
