That's not the deal, it's that there's no chance of coming close to sites that specialize in stuff like this, so it'd be a pointless gesture. We'd end up leeching material from elsewhere, so we'd still have no unique content really.

Altima didn't do anything wrong. Yvl's the one to blame for the crap this thread brought up. If I sounded angry in my responses to Altima's first post, its because I was pissed at how Yvl was acting.

I don't know if this is possible, but how about a redirect to the forum partition of the site when evermoreforums.com is put in the address bar? I'm no programmer so I wouldn't know.

Also, if interested, I could try and cook up a homepage design. I've been reading some of the points made in here, and the one that got my attention was original content. But really, until the community manages to get game journalists, flash programmers, website builders, etc. we shouldn't expect original content. However, it's a good start to, like, make some strategy guide threads: how did you found it was the most effective way to beat this part, to beat that boss, to beat the game, I could go on. Could be incorporated in the homepage and attract potential members.

We used to have a bunch of strategy guides posted here, but they were largely crappy so we didn't bother to put them back up after an update. Maybe that's why we have so little traffic now?

Well, homepage-wise, there's a hack I want to try reinstalling sometime soon. I'm famously lazy though, as has been mentioned in this thread (if I recall correctly), so if oyu want to try making one, go right ahead. I'd also really prefer that to simply redirecting the URL to the forum here.

And Yvl, I killed the guide section because it was yet another site that posted guides, with pretty much all guides lifted from gamefaqs (with permission of the author, of course). Also because whether we want them or not, we need some integrated system to post them here, not all by hand. If we really want to go a game help/advice/etc route, we're better off devising a model of information delivery and management that isn't in use by gamefaqs and like, every other site with "walkthroughs/faqs." Maybe something that integrates the forums themselves into it.

Wakarimashta. However I have a question to ask: is it because it's a nightmare to program a redirect or just for the aesthetic look?

I just wanna make a point with this.

I want to focus on "individual content" when I said "However, it's a good start to, like, make some strategy guide threads: how did you found it was the most effective way to beat this part, to beat that boss, to beat the game, I could go on." and focusing of the "you" of this new strategy.

I'll put my current case as an example. I'm playing a lot of Metal Gear Online and Sneaking Mission (SNE) as the game type. I could make a thread saying what are my methods to be successful when playing as Snake, what to avoid, the combos I use, etc.

The methodology is, in this case, what would I do to win as Snake, not what did the [insert random walkthrough site here] guy said it's good to win as Snake. As for control measures to ensure this is yours and purely yours...all that comes to mind right now is to be constantly checking those sites until something automatized is in place to check it for us.

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.
I made the parts I agree with bold
