I think that's the fewest new posts I've ever seen on the forums. I wonder why? Is every one doing so well, or is it because it's 2:30am here on east coast of America? Are there fewer users of Mint now, or things are going so well for the latest systems they are using? At times recently it seems the forums have been a bit slower, not just today.

the forum does get fairly quiet, between ~0100 - 10:00 UTC as an general rule.
- - with AU being several hours ahead, the quiet times, are quite obvious.
:o
some of the forum spammers, are in Asia & that will correlate, somewhat, with the AU TZs
- - the main CONUS spammers, do seem to work the night-shift, which is not that surprising.

The forum had severe and annoying slowdowns yesterday. I suppose that may have discouraged forum participation....

You don't say! Such an idea would have never occurred to me. Life outside the Linux Mint forum! I had always considered this a myth. :wink:

Had not been aware that you permitted yourself to be discouraged so easily. :wink:

It did? I thought it was just me, while hacking around on 18.3 yesterday.

...nah, i believe the answer in regards to forums' posts is easier to figure out.
They broke it during the day, and set Timeshift to have it restored by night while sleeping... :lol: :wink:
