    That is since an upgrade.
    I'm fairly certain that the highest figures were prior to that.

    Where did it all go wrong?

    IMO, since the MMA community has grown and forums have grown - only absolute and utter oldskoolers will bump this place every now and then.

    I think it's becuse MMA peaked and now it's crap.

    We were all smart or lucky and got in on it when it was good, and now we just keep watching in the hope it might actually pick up again.

    In the meantime we just come here to keep fond memories alive.

    need to get a revival happening. forums been through the ringers but the views are still high theres still people about just need the old school posting and get some others back as well as some new. the CW staff themselves have let it die they should be helping us revive it, succinct the content and let the old days reign.

    this place was unique to most forums probably due to it being brit based, our banters just better than the yanks end of....

    We need to revert to our roots, and scrap the pretence of civility we have been labouring under for the pass few years.

    I say bring back the porn of (extremely)questionable taste, targeting bullying campaigns, trolling, call-outs, threats, even dare I say it, the threads for baseless and delusional self-promotion(miss you jay!) - Those were the things that made CW great!

    I still check the board every single day.

    Would love for this place to be really jumping again.
