is studentawards dead?

A photo of Jesseyeahh Jesseyeahh
I feel like the forum has gotten a lot less traffic lately. Maybe it's because a lot of acceptances have already gone out and people are losing interest during this less hectic part of the year. Oh well.

and oh, is the other forum still up? link? does lawstudent still roam it?

They removed all the information, and replaced them with big, colourful buttons. Of course it will die.

You know the transition was a failure when the old forum has more viewers.

Are you serious?

And Jesseyeahh, yes, the forums seemed to have dried out recently.

The only dry time on the forum is September/October. No idea why it's been quiet the last week... most university students are off for Reading Week, but I'd expect that to only make the forum busier.

I find it's typically busiest around May/June, after people have been accepted and are starting to plan out their next year. University students are off at that time too, so there's lots of them around to help out.

Yes, I was just about to ask the same question. It is so quiet this year. Last year, early Feb - Aug are the most active with lots of students (mostly in Ontario) shared and asked questions about EngSci or Eng programs in UofT, Waterloo, Macmaster, queens...and about residence, school life, student mix, party school,....

Is it that lots of our 12 grade students already got accepted in early admission, and those not got accepted are very confident that they will be accepted by their dream/reach/safe choices in the 2nd round. They must have done exceptionally well in grade 11 and 12.

This is generally the time for university students to start working on essays and projects, and as Matt said it's reading week. Also, most of the questions being asked in the last week can easily be answered by searching the existing answers on this forum and the old one, so there's less need for users to respond here.

I guess people are just busy- I know I was, what with exams last month and other stuff going on. Plus essays for a lot of scholarships are due about now. Or people didn't do as well as they would have liked in first sem and are buckling down now.

Yes, it is. Less trolls & people who post only for the purpose of that contest aren't around now, which is good.

It's so annoying to see those people who post random spam...it's not like they're going to get the award anyway because SA wants at least 5 legit posts

There's less overall traffic because of the contest ending, I'm assuming.

I've noticed a significant improvement in the discussions ever since you've stopped coming around.

Also, most of the traffic used to consist almost exclusively of ederoo, who doesn't seem to exist on these boards anymore.
