I've never heard of YTTalk, but I haven't been using these forums as often as I should considering how long I've actually been a member for
TB forums have also had a complete redesign which they've been advertising. THAT would be why there's a lot of activity in here now as people like me, re-discover the forms. I've always known they were here, but kinda got sidetracked with other platforms.
I had no idea there was another YouTube forum. I've always wondered if forums have a life span. I've seen certain forums that were highly active even a couple years ago just die for no apparent reason. I speculate that why TB forums continue is because you have a company who continues to bring a relevant product/service to the fore.
As all the others I haven´t heard about yttalk - I´ve been aware that other forums do exist but have been quite happy with this one so far - activity is quite ok it goes up and down sometimes (I guess mostly seasonal trends) but there is a active core that is very responsive but small enough to know most people at least a little bit.
Personally, some of the staffs I liked left and I'm not a big fan of the current people. Ads on the forum is crazy lol. I'm usually fine with ads, but the placement of them are insane. I understand that they need money to keep the forum up, but jeez...
The original feel of YTTalk isn't there anymore. It just feels more... I guess "corporate." That's just me, though.
