    You should capitalize. And, no we aren't dead.

    Even without updates for a year, Terraria is still played a lot.

    http://store.steampowered.com/stats/

    Consistently in the top 20 or so over all of Steam. As far as the forums go, some parts are busy (mods/tools, the update suggestion thread). "Dead" is a relative term, I guess. It probably will never get back to the level of the early days.

    Mods, my friend. Not all of them are recolored swords and armor. Check out Eikester's mods or Lycos_Hayes' mods, plus others. Or check out what PuLSe and friends are building in the CraTeR. Lots of creative stuff going on.

    Besides the big spike we had at the start of December and the drop off the forums activity has actually gone up. I don't really have detailed stats on the game its self but I'm pretty sure its been actually going up recently and the hype with Andrew being on the forums daily and updates coming as well as the console releases coming very soon.

    Overall I think things have been going pretty good. I would love to post more news, but when the developers are hard at work they rather at times be working on updates then posting updates if you get my drift :)

    Yes. Because taking 5 minutes to report on current progress is like taking 5 hours to report on current progress.

    :):D:eek:

    As Kane noted, the stats are pretty telling. It's stark. If Kane ever lets me ( :p ) I'd love to show some stats - not to shout down the critics, rather to be proud of where we are during this Terrarenaissance. :D

    As PC noted....how many of these do we need?

    http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/is-terraria-dying.95655/
    http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/terrarias-slow-death.94720/
    http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/what-happened-to-these-forums.92039/

    And there are more.

    Not pushing back on the sentiment or the responses....but should we perhaps centralize to one place? :)

    Well, I didn't want to be rude and either just lock it...or question why people are still making these threads post console and Reds return. ;)

    I mean, 6 months ago, maybe...but now?

    Anyway...I should probably lock some of these...

    Done...and thanks for your understanding. I promise it's nothing personal - and I understand where you are coming from.

    Let me know if you have any questions or if I can ever assist with anything.

    Cheers
