IJBM II's Two Year Anniversary
January 8th is the two year anniversary of IJBM II's creation, so it seemed like a thread might be in order. I guess last year's thread was a bit sappier than expected, but feel free to get sentimental again if that floats your boat. I do not really have anything else to say about this, but below is a questionnaire if you would like to answer it. It does not matter how long you have been here for the purposes of that questionnaire by the way. It is open to everyone.
Also, the stuff about the other sites and least favorite moments is kind of sensitive, so it is probably a good idea to avoid importing drama or insulting specific users when talking about it.
On IJBM II:
- Are you surprised that IJBM II is still around?
- Are you surprised that you are still posting on IJBM II? What keeps you coming back?
- Do you think that IJBM II's community is too large, too small, or about right? If you believe it is too large, do you have any thoughts about ways of attracting new members/bringing back inactive ones [no worries if the answer to the second question is no]?
- Just looking at this past year, what are your favorite and least favorite IJBM II moments?
- Has your view of IJBM II changed since last year? Do you think its atmosphere has changed?
- What do you think is the most important factor for keeping IJBM II alive in the future?
- In your view, does IJBM II of today resemble the original IJBM?
- If the old IJBM was somehow restored to TVT, would you want to post there?
On TV Tropes/Spin-offs:
- Has your view of TV Tropes changed in the past year? Have your posting habits there changed at all?
- Are you a member of either of the two other spin-off forums (Heaper's Hangout/Beyond the Lampshade)? If so, are there aspects of those forums that you wish IJBM II had?
- Does the existence of three different TV Tropes spin-off boards surprise you at all?
- Do you think that all three of them will still exist two years from now?
- Do you think that those three communities could ever be merged into one site? Would you want them to be merged?
- What should IJBM's next avatar theme be?
