Every time I log in I have to input a 6 digit code to 'verify my identity' is there a way to stop that from occuring?

Dec 21, 2019TheMasterCaver posted a message on Now that it's been five months since the forums could've closed, are these forums still declining?Posted in: Forum Discussion & Info
The final nail in the coffin was when the forum decided to do the twitch integration. The forum had been declining drastically since when I was on one of my other accounts, that is now defunct. However I noticed that over the years I spent here before the old fanbase completely left and left this place open to newer users, and now it has declined. I am not sure if there is anything we could do to remedy this, as it seems it's just the cycle of how things are going.
The one thing that discord lacks is a good sense of moderation. I've been to so many servers run by corrupt and toxic people. Discord is a breeding ground for those sorts of things and good servers are rare to find, at least in my personal experiences. The one thing forums have over discord for me is that they are much more chill and people are much more appealing to be around.
The forums started declining all the way back in 2013-2014, as seen by the yearly post count in the Java Survival Mode section (this used to be the most active "discussion" forum, as opposed to forums like modding or servers):
2011: 598122 (259898/year, 712/day)
2012: 889659 (291537/year, 799/day)
2013: 993015 (103356/year, 283/day)
2014: 1138817 (145802/year, 399/day)
2015: 1177298 (38481/year, 105/day)
2016: 1196886 (19588/year, 53.7/day)
2017: 1205090 (8204/year, 22.5/day)
Note that this was BEFORE Twitch bought the forums - a decline of 97% between 2012 and 2017, with a slight rebound in 2014, but otherwise activity has been falling by around 50% year-over-year (it is hard to say what the current trend is from looking at archived pages since posts have been deleted but also restored; Survival Mode gained 163,000 posts over the past 6 months, many of which are likely older posts which were undeleted. A quick look at recently active threads suggests around 10 per day, so relatively speaking, Twitch didn't really do much to the forums, more so in absolute terms).

Yes I understand that curse had to comply with GDPR laws but I just feel that this entire fiasco was just overzealous and sloppy with very little planning/thought put into it.
There was definitely a better way to conduct this other than nuking every post after emailing the users while knowing that many of these accounts were made almost 10 years ago and many no longer be active/monitored. According to the announcement thread, you can't even restore your own posts if you somehow missed the email despite giving consent.
I agree. They should have used the forum messaging system and banners to communicate this major change, in addition to emails. Even though I was/am a forum staff member, I wasn't even aware that a GDPR-related purge was going to occur until after it had happened.
From what I know, the problem is the Curse developers coded a method to mass-temp-delete GDPR non-compliant accounts and hide their posts/threads, however they didn't bother to mark the posts so as to differentiate between GDPR-deleted posts and other deleted posts, nor did they provide any way to mass-undelete GDPR-deleted posts. We technically have the ability to restore peoples posts and threads if they do the GDPR acknowledgement, however we would have to undelete their posts practically one at a time, and would have to guess as to whether each post was deleted for GDPR reasons or non-GDPR reasons. This issue is likely not limited to just this forum -- it is probably an issue with all of the Curse (or former Curse) forums.

After a few weeks I finally have the time to get around to this. Pardon my late response, mods, as I know grave digging is bad. So, at long last I can add my 2 cents to the pile. Here are what I think are the major factors for the decline:
Contrary to what some others say Reddit is far, FAR from a replacement for forums. Discord is much closer to a forum, and has seen an incredible rise in popularity. Being able to talk on the spot, have pins, upload images on the spot, have pins, etc, are huge boons. The younger folk of today aren't used to the slower pace and comparatively clunky nature of forums, and are better versed in the former.
-Users scared off
Recently-ish the forums nuked an insane amount of posts and by extension mods and resources pretty much without warning, as well as going through a potential permanent shutdown. Naturally, the former was and still is a major shock to everyone, an the loss of precious posts, memories, and resources that will not be seen again is NOT to be taken lightly. To this day I myself am still ABSOLUTELY LIVID that it went down and I don't doubt it could have been handled in a far superior fashion. This, as well as the fact that those who've not checked in on the status of the MC forum as not down, has likely caused many members and groups in these forums to jump ship for places such as PlanetMinecraft, Discord, CurseForge, and so on.
-Minecraft is an old game
Minecraft turned 10 this year. Let that sink in. A 13 year old then is 23 now. From effectively a child to an adult that in some areas is able to smoke, drink, drive, be on their own, etc. A decade is a long time and a lot can change in that span. Many kids such as myself have grown up, and as such have either found new interests, got bored, or have became busy; sometimes all three of those!
With regards to account creation, bots are a big problem and massively inflate those numbers. However, bots are not the only thing roaming this website. People are, and even if they don't plan on doing anything, people will create accounts to potentially post with. I imagine many will not post at all, whereas some may just leave some posts numbering in the single or double digits, then fade away into history, never to be contacted again. It's haunting and creepy if I am to be frank. Adding on to all of that, Minecraft isn't quite in its days where it is still being discovered. It is THE best-selling game of all time. Everyone knows about it, and by extension are going to already know quite a few things about it, along with simply being able to discuss with friends in person, over Discord, or other means of contact outside of forums.
Then we also have the vicious cycle of low activity in itself causing lower activity.
