Need a Pheonix Down?
Okay, now i know this thread has been made many times before, but this is serious.

Shaggy, would you be able to send every old member an email saying something about a reunion here at the forum over a week for a set date. Where all the old members come back, reminisce and have a blast. Catch up, all that type of stuff (hopefully if people come to it, they stay 'catching up' lol).

TxR and myself, i think we need to do some serious promoting of the forum. I'm thinking, to make sure we dont slack off, we keep updated on what we have done and where we have been promoting. Anything to get some member's. Maybe a link in the tag of another forum. Perhaps mentioning it if the people at the forum are pretty laid back.

We need to do some serious promoting to get this forum back from the KO land and revived (unlike Aerith....). If anyone has any more ideas then please say so. Any posts that are off topic, can someone please delete, this is a very serious Thread.

According to Shag's profile, he hasn't logged on in over a month or two. You might just email him.

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?
I may do that.

Well i'm starting to let people know of the forum on the other forum i primarily am at these days...

EDIT: Or it could just not let me. You wouldnt happen to have an email addy other than the one on his page?

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?
It's nice to see you two still so passionate about reviving this forum.

I would comeback, if i was still into FF and games. xD.
I came today just browsing, seeing if my threads deleted.

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?
You should stick around Seyluv, you are a veteran of the forum, even been here longer than me. Even if you dont talk about the games i've enjoyed having you around all this time

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?
His email is directed to this site, so it wouldn't help much. :/

Sorry, I don't have another addy to send to.

I don't see a problem emailing members though...or PR for that matter.

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?
Good to see Ian is around. Guess I can leave again now (j/k) :p

clief101_ 07-01-2011 10:53 AM

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?
I was not aware his name was Ian. In fact i didn't get to know people on a personal level before everyone vanished. People i was closest to here was DR and Marius.

And NOOOOOOO! Joking is bad :P

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?

clief101_ 07-06-2011 05:12 AM

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?
Here's the thing about a forum. The Final Fantasy universe is huge, but not as huge as other games with its own universe. I think its possible to revive it to the state it once was, but a lot of work will need to be put into it. Today's gameplay is all about social play, the ability to compete against others. Final Fantasy is just the opposite of that with non-sequitor releases with finite gameplay. We've always had an enthusiastic fan-fic section, but that is an even smaller demographic for the FF Universe. The key will be appealing all players, both casual and hardcore, love the gameplay and love the story.

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?
Hey dark.

Yeah, i know what you mean, it's just getting some people here is the hard thing. If we can get a few people here to just spread the word about the forum, then people will eventually start rolling in

Re: Need a Pheonix Down?
That's exactly what I'm getting at. I have a lot of friends that are interested in the FF universe. As a matter of fact, one of them just finished playing I - IV. But none of them are interested in a FF forum, much less a forum about any of their interests.

It seems as if the Internet ages, communities only exist when there is enough new information to keep the cogs turning. Call of Duty gets a new release about every year; Mac and Windows are constantly pushing new OS versions, patches and hotfixes; theology is and will always be a hot-button topic until there is reputable, concrete evidence that God exists. The common factor with all of these is that there is enough interest in its existing community as well as enough interest for those who know nothing but are interested in learn about the subject.

Once upon a time, FF used to release nearly yearly. Recently, the core RPG games have been released with 2 - 3 years between. It also seems like the focus is moving towards their MMO - which I think would work for a forum as a main concept with the others included as an after thought.

TL;DR. To survive, this forum is going to need a concept with enough information existing and developing to continue strong. Otherwise, the numbers will always be small and dwindle here and there.
