Suggestions

The first few points are mostly aimed at the regular users whom fancy making a difference/helping the forum become popular.

1) I wanna point out the Tags Box below each topic (when you're writing a new one). Putting tags in manually helps the forum get hits/visitors. Its easy to over-look, but its there and does help.

2) Report ads lefts by bots. Seeing lots of spam about is sure to put people off joining.

3) Create a new topic once in a while! Don't go and make any old rubbish topic though, think about it for a moment and preferably make a useful topic if you can think of one (a guide of sorts for example).

4) This one is obvious..advertise! Even if you just put a link in your signature on another forum that you go to that will help.

5) This one is for the admins to consider; You gotta scroll down a fair bit to reach the bottom of this forum and some people are VERY lazy and some will just feel overwhelmed. Some of the sections have hardly any posts in and may as well be sub forum or merged anyway. The Manga and Anime forums could definatly be merged.
I don't get why for the Entertainment domain it says -Discuss everything from Television, Movies, Music, Comics, Anime, Cartoons, DVDs To Home Theatre Setups! And Anything Related to it. And they you have an anime forum too anyways

Another two that really stick out are Spamtastic and Forum Games. These may as well be merged too.

6) Another for the admins - Send out a reminder email about this place! I can't remember seeing one in a long time (possibly ever) and sometimes people just forget what the link to the forum was.

7) Remove the cut-off date. People probably don't look at the thread counter beside each forum so when they click on it and see it looks empty they would just assume nobody posts here.

We need to give the forum some life back people!

meh (whaaat?.. im jus bein honest 0.0)

2) Report ads lefts by bots. Seeing lots of spam about is sure to put people off joining.

already doin it (admins are already sick o'me n my 'humour' in every report)

3) Create a new topic once in a while! Don't go and make any old rubbish topic though, think about it for a moment and preferably make a useful topic if you can think of one (a guide of sorts for example).

"any old rubbish topic though" for the better good, that's why i'm refraining from makin new topics; never the time to write guides, but i'm good @ makin game threads that get quickly overlooked though

4) This one is obvious..advertise! Even if you just put a link in your signature on another forum that you go to that will help.

im in sum comitee for that ```

5) This one is for the admins to consider; You gotta scroll down a fair bit to reach the bottom of this forum and some people are VERY lazy and some will just feel overwhelmed.

meh; but this size ain't bigged compared to rando other places i've seen

Another two that really stick out are Spamtastic and Forum Games. These may as well be merged too.

NOOOOOO! for the love of all what's green n smelly keep'em apart; spamtastic would jus absorb the games n mutate them into spam too (which isn't a good thing -to me, i hate spam in games-)

6) Another for the admins - Send out a reminder email about this place! I can't remember seeing one in a long time (possibly ever) and sometimes people just forget what the link to the forum was.

i think shaggy said somewhere that he's gonna do that, lez not overdo it though, it aint pretty active in 'ere, but i still like it

7) Remove the cut-off date. People probably don't look at the thread counter beside each forum so when they click on it and see it looks empty they would just assume nobody posts here.

err.. what's a cut-off date?

We need to give the forum some life back people!


yupyup.. gotta have the last wordz

Re: Suggestions

Hmm..tags help bots (the good ones like Google bots) find the page and rank it higher in search engines.

But the games are spam. Most forums have them as one.

Cut-off date; After x date (the admin can alter this) topics become hidden. So like..if the news section had a cut-off date for in two weeks time all thread made before then would become invisible.

Re: Suggestions

Yeah make it so it shows all topics ever

Also putting a front page up (or back up) would help. If you can't find the time to update it then you can always get some of your current staff to do it, or select new ones as site admins. I've got a lot of art you can have, some is rare so will have to watermark it first though.

Oh and don't forget the change the description for the FFXIII forum, hehe

Re: Suggestions

8's one starts off a bit funny, but I like the end of the sentance.

Come to think of it 12's is no longer up to date either.

Feeling like a bit of a slave driver now..

Re: Suggestions

I think we should try to at least get one person from each Final Fantasy (not spin-offs) in the heading
