We need to kick the forum up a notch.

I just put this here as I wasn't sure where else to place it.

For a long time now I have tried to get people to come here and they all basically told me the same thing. They told me something close to this about EF "It looks just like any other normal boring regular forum."

We have got to find a way to change this. I have a few ideas although im not sure if we can do any of them of course.

#1 Make a homepage of course.

#2 Create completely custom skins, with custom buttons for each, and custom rep icon and report post icon below out names in each post if that can be done. A custom lock for each skin would be nice too just to make each unigue and truly one of a kind. Just more of them is never bad either if it can easily be done.

#3 Promise new members some crap like free rep for bringing other members here or for making so many posts in their first month of being here.

#4 Make our own one if a kind arcade games, im not sure if anyone can do that here tho.

#5 Make our own MMO type game like Kings of Chaos that I used to play back in the day but of course that may prove difficult.

#6 Make a game like RPG inferno that is exclusive to our site.

Forum sites are just like gaming consoles people join them based on exclusives.

Of course none of this may be possible, so I may just be blabbering on about impossiblities but oh well, I needed something to do anyway.

We have our LPs right now that are a hell of alot better than any other LPs out there. But it used to be that even the admin would participate in nearly all of the humorous events on the site, like practically weekly IM convos. Cruentus Lami joined eagerly based on what I showed him from that time, now there's just nothing here for any new members.

tl;dr: Lades needs to start caring about his damn site.

That reminds me, I'll be starting the trophies thing in September, not june, due to being pummeled with way too much at once.

Making games would be too arduous a task.

I think we have to remember here is that Johnny has to do all of this by himself, mostly anyway, I mean he does have help, but the end its his choice to make where every and how everthing must go, and he has other things come up, like all of us. I figure he'll get to it when he gets to it.

It's not really him deciding not to put something there or being too busy, but being too lazy to help his own site.

Rep is completely worthless really. No one would actually care to be honest about that anymore. :X

LOL. We'd need somebody very well versed in flash and all and spend countless hours. The games may seem nice and all but the work it tremendous amounts and we by no means have any professionals around here that could.

To be honest. Almost every skin here has been made by lades, and bloo, and others who took the time to make them. If you didn't already know that.

All in all its too much out of the way anyway :X its just too much work. And making threads again and again like this isn't gonna solve anything really besides just reminding lades of the tremendous amounts of stuff he still has to do.

Cerulean was made (by bloo) under my supervision (thanks for that btw). Still need to talk to her about finishing it up. My point is, you can request custom skins if you want, as long as they arent practically the same thing as an existing one, from what I understand at least.

Incidentally, I've been thinking about requesting a "Myspace" skin that has the most eye-shattering color scheme possible with text that you can't even read.

1) We used to have a portal, don't know what happened to it.

2) You know how much fucking work that would be for me alone? Let's put it this way. I make around 50 buttons for each style times the amount of styles there are. And let's not forget a banner. Too much work for me alone when there's other things I have to tend to at the moment.

3) As you've said, it's hard to make new members stick to EF because you say it needs something new. This wouldn't be such a bad idea if people actually stayed here.

4) There are tons of downloadable arcade games available.

5) One acronym: LotGD.

6) There's so many things wrong with an RPG system that it is unbelievable. I used to admin a website for a few years with the RPG system and people signed up for the board JUST for the RPG. Not to mention there was an RPG Inferno here once and it bombed.

It's alright saying all this...But are YOU going to help?

Are YOU going to put time and effort into this?

You can't just say "we need this, this and this" and expect others to do it.

We can't offer anything wonderful enough to get people to stay...
If people are not joining because we look dull...Then they obviously haven't checked the site out...Or they've come along on a slow day.
We do seem to have...A fair few slow days...But we're doing a ton better now.

Lades works really hard to keep this place in check and do whatever else it is he has to do. Sure, he can be lazy but I really don't believe he's going to let us all down...Just because he can't be bothered to do something.
He does what he can and the other stuff...He'll sort when he gets the chance. I'm sure.
But he's clearly busy...And would you honestly want to spend all day working, studying or just being busy...To come home and do more work?
No.
You wouldn't.
