*raises hand to speak*
As for me, I personally don't think this board is bad. Atleast not THAT bad.
It's cool, nice place to hang out for sometime or when you are bored. But I think that there are some negative things that I can recall:
1) In every single thread in this forum, some poeple tend to go way of topic (I'm not talking about the legendry Kwanakajima
Seriously, a forum is one place where poeple can communicate with each other and express thier opinions regarding different sunjects and if anybody can talk about things in wrong places then it won't really achieve it's goal.
2) Some "commun" spamming, short posts and double posts. only caring about the post count.
And I don't blame poeple since they can't really edit thier posts.
3) (if you think it's harsh skp this cuz it would be the most harsh one)
If I'm not mistaken, this is a videogame& history forum. but I didn't see a single thread for game news or history researchs.
Even if it was a general forum, it really should have things to give. I mean how can you attract poeple if you don't have a single thing to offer.there are many forums these days, IF, Zeta, vb, IBP, PHPbb, Proboards and many other systems.
Many subject, and you're forum is in the most common one (videogame, history and general discussion) so why the hell would poeple choose your forum from all these millions of forums when you don't have anything to offer? just for the fact that they are your friends? you would be very lucky if they signed up and only posted twice.
I really recommend you look into this serious things and start "devolping" the forum.
I'm really sorry to say that, but it's really the truth. I, you, and everyone should thank Ricky for starting this "frank" thread
