I'm just asking out of pure curiosity and laziness.

Honestly, not that much. Just check the “Show unread posts since your last visit” and “Show new replies to your posts” sections to see what you may have missed.

I checked that, only about two pages of posts, seems as if the place has started dying off since I signed off a year ago.

Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of fans of the past have moved on to other things. I still post new content to TWCC almost every week, though!

It's great to see that you are still maintaining and adding new content.

It is great to still have some people around though. I do agree that these days The Weather Channel has kind of turned to crap and the great days of the channel we all loved are behind us.

I'm afraid that's right. :(

Yeah I wish more people would come on here, especially ones who used to be on here all the time.  :(

Honestly this place kind of feels like my old Xbox Live account. There's people on there that haven't been online since 2009. Instead here, its just people signing off in 2015-16 and never coming back (or logging in sporadically).

Sadly, as others have already said, the majority of members left due to TWCs decline in the past decade...  it's just not the same. Every once in a blue moon I'll take a glance at the forum from afar to see what all people are doing, but I don't see much activity at all that interests me. I do keep in contact with some other old timers from here, which is fantastic!

While I still admire the technology aspect of TWC and work with my STAR hardware, I don't particularly care for the network as it stands today. My family ditched cable back in 2015, and frankly, I am a-okay with not having TWC anymore. Netflix and Hulu FTW :happy:

I do miss all the buzz and random discussions we all had back in the day on these forums, though! :thumbsup:

Yeah, me too. I still keep in touch with many of you guys that I've known over so many years as well, and I am so grateful for that! :) Those memories of our good times here on the forums and TWC shall never die.

Unless something significant happen, like new look (which happened today) or bad weather coverage, yeah, this forum is dead. 11 years ago, it was a lot more active when the channel has more hours of weather coverage.
There's hopes for TWC to be good again
