As title, ReCom is real dead after everyone accepted their scholarship and left for school. Is there a way to hype up this forum more during this period ?

I've seen this phenomenon for 7 years and it's still the same now !

I guess there isn't much that we can do to help retain the interests of many "scholarship hunters" who merely come here for more information on scholarships.

Aside from the House of Spammers, the other threads are pretty much intellectual-based, with not much nonsense going on here. I suppose the seemingly "serious side" of ReCom does not help to keep its members active here.

However, us ReComers are genuinely crazy, mad, fun, sadistic , and what-not when you get to know us.

ReCom does get pretty boring, especially during this time of the year. Tragic though; I really like this forum.

Maybe instead of trying to attract attention during the dead months, we could making the scholarship hunters stay on and contribute to the livelihood of the forum? Bailing the moment you get your information seems a little... selfish.

Some of the people never even sign up for any account. When they see titles like experience during JPA interview, they will come in and read the whole thing inside out. After that leave. Not contributing even after the interview.

And worse still, only after getting a scholarship do they come back here and say

" Hey, I got the scholarships"

Post: 1 ( 1 to announce that they got a scholarship)

No offence.

( Coming from someone who posted 400++)

We will not be able to be active all the time unless we have a common interest that attracts visitors all year long. Forums on gaming, computer, photography etc can be active all year long because those interests are not only relevant in a certain part of the year.

ReCom used to be a fertile debate ground for many of the socio-economical issues, but as time went by most of the active members have moved on and the new members are not that keen to debate on these issues anymore, so we are left with this yearly tides of scholarship seekers forming the high and low seasons.

So how do we rebuild the interest in non-scholarship topics? Every time someone tries to start a new topic it simply fizzles out in a matter of days. We no longer seem to have the critical mass required to sustain a constant activity.

I guess people are tired and frustrated about debating on issues (especially Malaysian issues) that have no particular outcome or that the best outcome could just remain a dream.

Sigh...

Isn't it because people are too busy adjusting their lives? Attending colleges / pre-U after 5 or 6 months graduated from high school is a huge change of environment, I would say.

But oh well, can't deny the fact that Recom is more fun with actually many people around.

I miss the times around 4-5 years ago when ReComers can talk about anything from politics to science to personal issues instead of just spamming...

Since Recom is known as 'scholarship-issues-based', it's hard to remain active all the time... Anything we can do to make this forum livelier?
