Default Ideas on how to bring this place back to life.

NAO.

Honestly I'm not that experienced in this sort of thing, but we need to get this place back off the ground.

... anyone have any ideas?

The frontpage needs updates! .. like seriously!
And we need to promote this page on every social-networking site there is!

Perhaps we can make a youtube account or something? Of course, that would require people volunteering to actually put content on it, and me not having such a cruddy computer and camera myself.

I know from recent excursions to parts of the web that nothing brings back users, new and old, like giving a site a "2.0" makeover. Not changing the things we do, per se, but how we get them done.

However, far be it from me to tell John how he should run his site.

Oh, and word'll have to get out that stuff is happening. People don't make decisions based on reality, but on their perception of reality. We can use that to our advantage.

Linking good content regularly, our primary concern, will require a larger community than we currently have; creating it will require an even larger community than that. Plus, who has the incentive anymore?

I don't know whether to feel hopeful or dispirited by that post. Those are some good ideas though.

I can agree with Dudeo that shit looks pretty hopeless for this forum in terms of obtaining new members and making the traffic seem somewhat 'booming'. However, to agree with it completely would be pretty negative and I'd like to see some more traffic on this website myself. I'd love to find a way to link funny content or videos on this website, though a lot of them will have to go on Youtube first to gain any initial publicity. Dudeo is right about the incentive though, I don't really have too much incentive to use some of my time to make a funny or good video to upload online. My suggestion would be to find anybody you know who is talented to join here so that they can possibly make good content for this site.

Maybe we should change the site name to something about sex or hentai. Suddenly, hundreds of thousands of hits.

I hate to say this, but changing the site's name is going to do jack shit in the long run. I'd recommend focusing on attaining a tenable position of moderate-high activity than a few weeks of crack frenzy followed by the inevitable mass exodus and the long withdrawal period thereafter.

Well, in any case, I wouldn't start sprouting ideas for site development unless John invites them. That sort of thing can be very annoying.

Nah...that wouldn't help in the long term because people will eventually find our ploy out. Best thing to do will be to google bomb the shit out of those words so that our website magically becomes the first result that pops up when people enter sex, hentai, or porn.

Unfortunately, Google's algorithm is too "smart" for that to work.

Well, that means we have to get 'smarter' so we can 'outsmart' that shit. Though that would be extremely hard or next to impossible because that shit is Google, and we all know Google doesn't fuck around when it comes to being smart...or do they?

If it's gotten to the point where we're making comparisons between Gprime and HIV, we may as well give up now.

How about a Gprime exclusive vidya game? It would probably have to have crappy 2D graphics or something, but that doesn't necessarily mean it can't be fun. If you guys could submit art, music, ideas, and other miscellany, I'd be willing to put it all together.
It would have to be on a premade engine though, because I can't code for squat (and those who can code probably don't want to build an engine). And of course, it could take a while to make something decent.

Just a thought I had while janitoring-up Walmart last night. Yes, I did just use janitor as a verb.

Bring back certain "mods" for certain games, Ya' know, like that game that brought thousands of one-posters and semi-regular members, way back when I joined.

GunZ subforum again? I think that's the worst idea we've had yet.

We could have an anime and manga section... but whenever I suggest this I get shot down. :-(
