Why is it that the paradigm for this discussion has to be whether people find something "pointless" or "useless"? Something can be useful and yet if it isn't serving the purpose it is intended for then it is a fair question to be asked about in regards to continuing to put resources into it. Yes there have been multiple discussions over the years in how to make WNU more useful, and yet by most metrics there has been no change despite all that has been done. Multiple times over the last few years both the JC and FF have consolidated forums that no longer serve a useful purpose. And as I am yet to see anyone actually refute the soft numbers I posted above or provide a solid off-set to that, how can a stand be made to keep a forum open that is for all intents and purposes a secondary community forum rather than one that is based upon the new users? It is fair to question pumping multiple resources into that forum when as more than one person has pointed out that the issue with people feeling unwelcomed on the boards is primarily isolated to a single forum, which as the largest forum on the boards is where it makes more sense to put the resources to work. Obfuscating the issue by turning it into a question of people's personal opinions on whether the forum has a point does nothing to address either of the above issues and is unfair to all involved.
