Some people even create duplicate threads about the World Masters just to have more activity.

Just had a look at our online numbers.

407 online 20 minutes ago. Not bad for a Friday lunchtime on a dying forum. ;-)

Over 450 online now. Not a lot of posters, but clearly huge interest in the forum.

Of course. So they can go and talk about it on their own forum/fb page.
Odd really but still, shows this is still THE place to be :)

This forum is just like a reality show tbh, Oche, Ginge and Skewball bashing eachother, random Polish guy popping up, Robson who gets the usual hate. It is a good read.

But, lets look at the way it has actually gone, the anti BDO brigade have totally taken over, this place is actually now known throughout darts as a place you are more than welcome as long as you abuse the bdo, note i don't say favour the pdc as that is rarely the case.
The only posts on here since 3.43 this afternoon have been to troll the bdo.
Right now we have three active mods, Nik who is so traumatised by a pensioner asking him why he allows abuse towards his wife he has completely distanced himself (run away and hid under a table) from trying to be balanced (he was once honest).
One who is so convinced he actually now has power he does nothing but copy n paste graphs literally nobody is interested in and deletes any kind of reasonable comment on any pdc thread while letting anything go on bdo ones.
One who just sit's on Whinges lap jumping to any command by the master.

The point is, this place has been slowly dying, the players have all left and the genuine intelligent discourse has gone too, this entire forum is now purely a hate platform for those who loath the BDO, no need to take my word for it just look at any thread, they all descend (or begin as) into BDO hatred.
It's sad, RIP.
