What Needs to Change?

Postby konijntje » Fri Jan 27, 2006 2:50 am

I like this forum. I think it has the potential to be a really good forum. I think there are not enough members right now (I know, Egal, I know), but there were quite a few posting regularly...now...for the last week...the posts seem to have really lessened.

This is not *my* site...but I do care. If something needs to change...then let's say it here. What do you think needs to be added...or taken away. Any and all ideas are welcome. Make it personal. What would make YOU want to post more often??

*is hoping the answer isn't less mg32* :s


EDIT: I'm aware that forums like this are a dime a dozen...and wanting one to succeed is like saying "I wanna be a rock star when I grow up". But aside from that.....what are your ideas?

Hi mg,

first off...this is ' your ' site

and that's what I've been trying to get across to everybody since the blogs...but it's a concept that isn't common on the net...it's not new as jinxy said...just not very common.

Which is why I've stressed everyone should assist in it's promotion...if it was ' my ' site then the responsibility would be mine alone...but this is NOT ' my ' site...this is ' our ' site...so, in my opinion, everyone should help.

And if we were all participating in it's promotion then there would be no problem...as our membership would gain accordingly.

As for the immediate problem...

I think some people might be waiting to see what happens....kinda standing by to see whether or not the site will remain stable or be moved to a new location...and...
with some people like foxy it's simply a matter of equipment problems ( computer and arse not working properly :D :P )

At first I thought it was just the normal ebb and flow of the weekends but...it's understandable that some members are frustrated by the events around here...and are reluctant to spend time here posting when they don't even know if the site will be accessible tomorrow.

Eg ;)

This site was started for pretty much the same reason the blogs were...and pretty much for the same reason the website is being developed...

it's up to the members to decide whether or not they want the site to succeed...the blogs to succeed...or the website to succeed...

who's responsibility is it to promote and get this site jumping?

I agree...this site has the potential to be great...but whether it becomes great or just a novelty will be up to the members...all the members...not just a few of them.

If it dies...then that will be because there wasn't enough interest and support to get it rolling...in which case...it should die.

I spent 4 hours last night just uploading an identical site into the TAZ...one piece at a time on dial-up...it's all uploaded...every scrap...in case we need to start over...I'm doing my part.

You say it's up to us to promote the site, right? But I thought it was by invitation only...and that we couldn't really advertise the site.

Hi mg,

Not ' us ' but everyone...;)

But I thought it was by invitation only...and that we couldn't really advertise the site.


No...I never said that...or even alluded to that...all I ever said in regard to ' invited members ' was that only they could/would be mods.

Everyone who happens upon the site would just be a regular member.

That I wanted a good enforcement of mods before we opened the gates...which we have...even though many don't show up very often.

In fact we had this discussion with neel once...where he compared me to somebody on unerror...in his opinion, being too pushy asking people to do their part.

Hi mg,

Yes...invite whoever you'd like...but...promotion of the site will bring in the members. ;)

for the last week...the posts seem to have really lessened.


I know I have been quite busy lately. Even tonight I have 4 browzers open and am creating a document in OpenOffice. My turtle is flipping me the three toed paw because I haven't given him his worms for the evening, my birds are upset because I haven't put Clannard on. And my two pooches are begging for a snack as well...lol. Sounds like a Zoo in here :lol: And I'm not a night owl. At 11:30 I'm gettin' horizontal into the deep sleep zone..

I'm hopefully the volume of folks will increase. The forum is still new.

Well, invite anyone you think may have fun here and be fun to be around.

I've been extra busy this week, too...because I've basically not done shite for the last 5 weeks!

Hi mg,

I know the above post was directed at Relyt ... because I've already invited pretty much everyone I wanted to :D

I'd like to invite Spyder but him and debs are at odds apparently...and then there's HT ( controversal but interesting :D ) I don't mind him...I don't want friction...but we'll eventually get it anyways sooner or later.

Off the top of my head...I'd suggest these but I don't know them very well so I never put them on my list...

thehorse
korpdeath ( been invited already...hasn't shown up :P )
phishphreek80
the texan
Shreekie/Raiden
the duck
irongeek
zencoder
sec_ware
rapier57
hjack
dalek
cacosapo
paws
valhallen
copyright
tigershark
gore

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few...but there's lots to invite if you want to invite them....and then there's James' and Debs sites.

Eg ;)

I don't have a problem with any of them. However some will need to leave the egos at the door and don't spray the room...lol
