It wasn't just activity, if I can be harsh, quality was at a whole other level compared to now.
Plus, back then, we had people determined to run it and get things done and ensure it was finished, we don't have that now. It's why I warn of tournaments and such things tried over the past few years because you can see from a mile off it either won't work, or be a trainwreck.
Quality was better too, yes. More bookers, better quality writing, there are some gems here today. I really do enjoy Kintaro's '95 WWF BTB because you rarely see any New Generation threads that last around here.
However for the most part, I have to agree. To read better quality booking I sometimes have to look elsewhere.
