    They were either banned or just left the site. That's why there's so few members online.

    Most modern 3A games, are now not so moddable. Gamebanana, formerly FPSBanana, formerly CSBanana, were created back when games, were mostly:

    1. Singleplayer
    2. Multiplayer
    3. Dev were allowing users to create mod for their game to boost their player base.

    Website's changed too much in the intervening years, making it harder and harder to navigate.

    Personally I stopped playing Counter-Strike years ago, which was the entire reason I joined this website back when it was CSBanana.

    Fashionably late to the conversation:

    I started writing what was a long disquisition on why Gamebanana is now desolate, but I've decided it would be much simpler just to put some of the points I was making into concise notes as such

    - Most of the community were far more interested in posting on the forum than they were in making mods, which isn't a bad thing, but when the forum died it meant that those people wouldn't return
    - 10 years ago, most active members on FPSB were 15–20
    - People got 9–5 jobs, leaving little time in the evenings to spend on external joys like Internet communities
    - Being a (good) student takes up a lot of time
    - Some people kinda got bullied out
    - Elitism between modders on HIT, HLC, CDG, FPSB, and other small cliques that formed
    - Not everyone formed social groups outside of the website, and some social groups made it so that the website wasn't needed, at least from my perspective being a regular of the IRC channel for over a decade, I made myself comfortable with Fibbs, Ippe, Rockeiro, Judo, Agent, Haxorfox, etc. and felt like I didn't need anyone else from FPSB
    - The website went under constant revision, and I still think that none of these updates ever did any good to FPSB/GB, it has made things  harder to access, it has made the website less legible, features removed features added, I feel like on a whole very little has been done in response to our critique, I don't want to be cruel but every update seems like an attempt of "How can we fuck this up even more?", in its current state I would hazard a guess that Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles are responsible for whatever this is...
    - Game nights stopped being organized
    - Game related tournaments also stopped... I think the last one we did  was a 5on5 CS:S tournament hosted by dr.iCe and I?
    - The forum slowly became flooded with threads requesting help with modding rather than actual discussion. People asking questions that would have been solved by looking through the tutorials section, perhaps its our fault for not having sufficient tutorials, because those were the first to be sparse
    - Off-topic posting going rampant, specifically people asking for help
    - Clubs got megafucked at one point and never recovered
    - The Blackhole went missing, and so did a lot of inside jokes and memes within the community
    - Some members were banned for wrong reasons, MightyHeysu comes to mind. I also don't remember why Ekic was banned.

    There are definitely more things I can bring up here, but I've reached my quota of rumination for today.

    I also begun writing up a list of users who I wanted to give a shout out to, but I realized half-way through it that I had already run up about a 200 or so users, and that's just off the top of my head, it makes me depressed, I still don't think I could list off everyone that made this site worthwhile, way too many people. Back when the site used to have an average of 500 users on at one time, and at least half of that were active posters.
