PostSubject: Forum is dead.   Wed Nov 14, 2007 11:12 am

We have, as of late, not done very much posting. What happened to the days when I would come on and see the little skull thingies that signified a new post on every single section. What happed to the days when there were always atleast two or three people on. What happened to the days when this site was a true forum. We need to bring back those days. I mean, only three people have been on in the last 24 hours (at time of me posting this). We have over 100 members. We can do better than three people. read the what I said

we could. but what is there to do? we can't force people to be online and do things here, I've gotten all the people that i know who like Halo on here, they just ain't interested on being on here, and we have practically everything here.

I saw it Avid. It was well thought out. But the main point of your letter was the whole RougeSpartan414 becoming a mod thing.

well this is a Game Forum, and i think for quiet a lot of people School, Work, Social life, etc sort of comes first. then there is the interest problem, if people ain't interested in here they won't be active or come. then you have the Random factor, people just randomly registering for no reason. i think we pretty much have everything here we can have. all i think we can do is just keep chatting, looking friendly and hope others become interested.

ORDINATOR's right sadly we cant change it if people don't want to come all the time or anything. but thats part of being a gaming forum. Just keep talking and make sure it doesn't get any slower.

We also have to consider that it isn't summer anymore and we don't have as much time as we used to also it would be good if people got the word around about this forum like with youtube videos.

I will probably either get kicked off for saying this, or certain people will try and burn me at the stake for being blasphemous again...but have you guys considered yet that Halo just might not have that bigger fan base? Think about it. In a class of 30 here in Australia, you would be extremely lucky to have 2 who have ever played Halo seriously. I dunno if it's the same in the USA or other areas, but I am looking at it from a local perspective. Sure, this certainly doesn't explain the "lack" of members you guys seem to be worried about, but it's a thought that I thought I might raise.

As for members not being active, ORDINATOR is right, you can't force people to be online. For example, I have been offline (not just from here, but from MSN and...everything) for near to two months coz I have been studying like hell for my final exams. Stuff like schoolwork, friends, work and a totally sexy boyfriend do come first for some people.

I live in U.S. and just ask any guy, they'll at least say they've tried it. About 3/4 will say it is awesome (but they aren't big fans or nothing)

It also depends on age as well. I mean, I am eighteen, and you guys are what...younger than that? So I suppose the interest would be higher within that age bracket compared to mine.

As for "ask any guy"...judging by the fact that, at last count, there were a grand total of two girls on this site, there are definitely more males than females that play Halo...

Sure, it all sells out fast and by the hundreds. But compared to populations and demographics of those populations, I simply don't believe that there is a big enough fan base to start up a forum where every person is active every day. I might be wrong, and hell, most likely am.

Come to think of it, this site is mostly aimed at teenage boys...maybe broadening the aim of the site somehow will encourage more members?

Sorry to say, Rainbow Chicken, but you are completely wrong. Halo is the most popular thing...ever in the US. I mean that almost literally. Its bigger than starwars and Harry Potter, maybe even combined.
I am speaking from a USA perspective.

And youre quite right about the lack of gamer chicks in the world. There are a lot of girls in the US who like Halo, but not enough to join a fandom like this.

Oh, and the lack of active members is partially to due with mine and PoR's activity, as well as the lack of a real domain name and publicity.
