Is Kaskus Going to Die?
Introduction


Quote:This is my first thread after a long time I'm not making any. Also this is my first thread in English forum. So basically this is my opinion regarding my concern about Kaskus popularity. The benchmark I use here is internet traffic, and of course my 8 years experience in Kaskus forumemoticon-Cool. Okay, without further ado, let's go to the content


Existing Condition
As you can see yourself, the amount of thread being watched or replied is very low. How could that happen? Well, believe it or not the popularity of Kaskus has been plummeted compared to even 8-9 years ago. The Lounge, main forum in Kaskus is not that "crowded". If the main forum is not crowded than how can you expect the others to be crowded? Especially this forum, English forum. Even though back then this forum is already deserted, now this forum condition is even worse. But there's one improvement to this forum, at least the amount of thread about english course ads is very low (either it's because the low traffic or the moderators has been active again. It's a good improvement nonetheless).

How It Used To Be
In 2009 when the domain is still .us until Kaskus is very popular the server broke down several times due to over posting. This was handled by adding captcha (capcay) every time you try to post. But still that didn't solve the issue. Over posting still happened all the time. Although over posting may be due to capacity of server that can't handle the post but still this shows us how popular it is back then.

In 2012 there's a big event, kaskus is getting redesigned there's a time when you can get an invitation to try kaskus beta (basically this kaskus version is what you see today). Then after getting feedback and the design is pretty much done, kaskus migrated  from kaskus.co.id to kaskus.co.id. I think this migration is a big news that bring people to ngaskus. What I hate from this new kaskus design is you can't personalise your profile page emoticon-Frown, for me,  I don't feel the exclusivity anymore (the only one way to feel exclusive is through kaskus donatemoticon-Big Grin). Back then, quick reply is only for donator or what you call today a premium user.


Efforts Made
Striving for its traffic, kaskus made several efforts. Kaskus made so many events back then, and even more now. Kaskus also made new forums and subforums and also made a media partnership with many companies. Kaskus also make quick reply available for everyone and the captcha had been taken out. Kaskus redesigned FJB and make many promotions to attract seller and buyer because online shopping platform is so many these days. And now, there's this thing called Kreator.
In my opinion, Kreator is a desperate attempt to gain traffic and popularity. Why? Because Kaskus basically pays you to be a content creator. This is actually not wrong because many websites that provides articles and news also do this (you can be their contributor if you want to).

Conclusion
Kaskus is already "playing" in this area (online forum, community based) for almost 19 years. This is actually an achievement for Kaskus as no Indonesian forum stayed this long. But that also forces Kaskus to make a new innovation in order to keep this site going. If those innovations fail, then Kaskus is going to die for sure. What keep it from dying? We are. So keep posting, and keep ngaskus guys! emoticon-Kaskus Lovers:emoticon-I Love Kaskus

I want to be there. When Kaskus die, i want to be on her side, when she's layying on her death bed. And then calmly whispers lullaby and good night song. And goodbye kiss.

This is the sweetest thing ever said towards KasKus that I’ve ever read.

If Kaskus was a female person, she’d be melting alright.

We could make one if we could, especially considering the free mass voice chat feature served by that software.

But I really doubt everyone in EF has or willing to have a discord account :/

i wished it'll stay exist and popular for the long run! emoticon-Berduka (S)

as an old user (my other ID was registered since 2008, but i forgot the password, and the yahoo email that was connected with it was neglected emoticon-Ngakak (S)), i totally feel You! One of my older threads were viewed by 120.000+ users, got 1300 comments and 700+ shares. The engagement in those days (before 2014) were great. The difficulty to earn (and give) cendol was also higher, so it made us consistently login to kaskus. Nowadays, they're all below 10.000 viewers and less comments in one thread, even though i put more efforts both in writing and sharing it in more social medias. Contests is also held more often back then. Some celebrities like Igor Saykoji and Abu Marlo were also highly participated back then. And this English forum were so active. how i missed it! emoticon-Mewek
