Dead Forums-The Horror of Not Living in the US

Now I know nothing can be done about this, but it really ticks me off. It seems the US is the only country in the world, because even in off-topic, before about one o’clock in the UK, there are about twenty minutes between each post here…and it’s really annoying. I want to know why the US seems to hold about 1,000,000 of the 1,400,000 users on Kong.

Is anyone else in the UK, or just not in the US, annoyed about this?

I am also annoyed about this. The problem is even more pronounced in serious discussion, where there is usually about 1 hour between posts.

Depends on who you’re talking to. Try someone who’s different in ideas but understands criticism instead of someone who acts like Bill O’Reilly, whether liberal, moderate, or conservative.

Yeah. After lunch it’s moderately better, and after five the forums finally get awesomely active. Don’t you think it seems like everyone lives in the US?

Yeah. I can speak to a few people on at lunch. And no not at all. Only a couple of hundred million people live in the US no where near everyone.

Well I’ve met a lot of nice people on Kong from US, UK, Asia, Aussie, NZ. You just gotta roll with the Time Zones. Or wait for school holidays. Sadly it’s hard for us to game with European friends because of the 7+ hour time difference. By the time I get home from work it’s 12 mid in Germany. Basically Saturday & Sunday are the only times I can game with them. But that’s where IM comes in handy we can still chat and they can rub in the fact that they are earning badges while I’m stuck at work.
