For the amount of members this site has there really isn't much action on the platform.

Is there something wrong?

It's not on really.


Don't worry it's only a bad day, not a bad life.

I miss the BIG summer contests and the stores so that people could actually buy your stuff instead of waiting to see if someone will vote you to have a store which is now basically just on a catalog (no offense to that amazing feature). I just feel like so many things have changed and some for better or for worse but something have limited ones ability and we need to kinda bring that back.

We need more people to comment and use the site to build up a community and chat in the chat section. Then the site should improve.

Yea I noticed that when I began to design again and began to post in the forums a lot people become more interested and active per say. I am posting on the sites twitter a lot and I have been hoping that would bring members in but I don't know haha. I want to host a contest but I am afraid no one will join and then it will just flop lol.
I haven't talked to Leandra in like a week but she just got settled into college basically so she probably doesn't have much time to work on the site and honestly I kind of prefer it not to be edited anymore. Having it being changes formats like 10 times within the past 2 years can make it confusing.
Let's just try to attract more attention on any website like stardoll or instagram since hashtags are a much easier thing to track on instagram compared to twitter lol. I guess I might make one since I have no idea who owns the dssocialite instagram haha.

I understand how you feel Tammy, I was twittering a lot myself, and I tried to keep a simple game going but it was working ones were playing then it started to die out and that's why I stopped it for awhile plus had some huge family things going on, As for the chat room I was in there almost everyday and well got tired chatting with myself lol. But I'll start up again with the twitter thing. lol and Art I'll keep trying to get back in the chat room, as far as contest it would be nice if we all take part in them and that would be encouraging and hopefully motivate others to join. The game I started I'll be posting a new "who am I ? character tomorrow hope ones take the time to start guessing.

Hey! :P
I have to agree that the site doesnt seem to be getting much action lately, and i feel like it always has periods where its kinda dead but it's always disheartening to go online and see like 4 new posts in a month, and have no one to talk to online. I know im not helping the cause by being MIA xD but i do wanna get back into designing, its just that I've been ridiculously busy with school lately, as many of you probably are, it's just that i go online and have no motivation to design, ya know? I'm hoping to get online a lil more in the future, if not to design then hopefully just to chat, or perhaps host some contests or whatnot, but as Tammy said, i dont wanna have any floppers.
I really do miss the busy DS site! Hopefully more active members will join soon!

Maybe we can think of something to bring more appeal? I have been so busy with mock trial lately I haven't had time to design but I hope once some of our games are over I will have some time. I am trying to tweet everyday and I see lots of members joining just not participating per say lol

there's over 5,thousand members on this site and I only see about 10 names pop up in forum.

Maybe everyone could do a tutorial to help newbies. Such as step by step guides or show few pictures of how your design process goes.

Keep inspiring others and talk about any interesting topic you can think of in the chat section.

Somehow, there has to be a way to engage the members already on here and make them active and designing.

Maybe more people chatting on the chat box will get people inspired.... keep sharing designs.

i came here to have a look around after my absence and i feel bad for how dead it is

bit late but the answer is that people are growing up, hear me out:

girlsense closed in 2012 (or 2013, unsure.) which means it closed 3 years ago.

most of the people on girlsense (with some exceptions obviously) were between 9 and 18.

This means that a 11 year old who signed up for DS after girlsense closed will now be 14.

a 14 year old has many more commitments than an 11 year old for example

now that girlsense is closed, there isn't much attracting younger teenagers to DS (who, lets face it, are the most active)

im sure 80% of the members on here were on girlsense, but this is a generalisation. if i hadn't been on girlsense and lolitahaze (old forum thingy) i would not know about the website at all

TLDR; people are becoming much more stressed/busy/mature etc.

Actually it's the way the site is lay out and the lack of the owner caring for the site.
When the website changed from forum layout to this grid...many people got pissed and left.
IT's the lack of people giving a damn about the designs and it not being as fun.

When chat box was active more people came online and stayed longer.
What's there to do to make people stay for more than ten mins..(even I don't stay online for more than 3 minutes anymore)...designing....most people do that outside the website on another program...
OR gave up designing at all.

i think its pretty * rude that you think leandra doesn't care about the site tbh, its obvious she cares a looot for it
maybe its not as fun because people's friends left...?
im a prime example, i didnt like to associate with 80% of the site because they're annoying so when the select people i enjoyed conversation with left, so did i

bye im probably  gonna feel nostalgic and visit again sometime soon

This honestly makes me very sad. Wish this site was active or someone can make a new one so I have something to have fun on. Please
