This site might as well be a support forum only

Post by Josh on Sun Jun 24, 2012 12:04 pm

For those of you who have been here for a while, you probably remember me...well, you should at least.

I'm gonna keep this short b/c no one logs on anymore, but this forum needs a revamp. There are so many forums and subforums that have no use anymore. Ever since Nacho left and the URL changed, this site has been going straight down hill and hasn't stopped yet.

The forum needs a small new look and should be tendered as a support forum only as that's the only place where posts get made. Part 2 is advertising. Nacho did a ton of that and when the URL changed, MORE should have been done, not less.

Obviously I'd be willing to help out in any way I can, so if the staff agrees with me, I'd like to see this site get back on track again.

As you may know the URL had to change due to issues with Facebook itself

One problem is that once a forum URL 'changes' it can be very difficult to locate the forum again !!

Those of you who are active on Facebook itself can help to promote the new URL for this forum by placing a link to it in your Facebook profile if you so wish ?

In what way ?

and should be tendered as a support forum only as that's the only place where posts get made.

Maybe because people do not wish to get involved with General chat?

Part 2 is advertising

Again..promote it on your own Facebook profiles if you so wish .

Obviously we have no idea what he did or did not do to keep 'promoting' this forum but, as he said he will not be back we cannot know happy

It was, but that's aside the point.

and the URL changed

I'm aware, I was a staff member at the time and saw the e-mail.

Which is why I said that we needed to advertise more and not less.

I doubt any members would do that as so few people use this site anymore.

Deleting some categories and forums. Reorganize some of the others to show that support is our main priority.

Well then it should be removed. It looks bad when the last post was made months ago.

That's not nearly enough.

Advertise on other forums, send the link to FB friends, even buy ads on Facebook, etc. This would all be easier if this site didn't have the .forumotion part in the URL as that throw people off.

Agreed. I have previously removed some subforums/categories that were I thought were irrelevant or not important. Of the ones that are still present, I think some of the ones in 'Facebook Games' and 'Facebook Support' could be removed (maybe even all of games).

I think as a support forum for the big social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, LinkedIn etc) instead of solely on Facebook. However this would need members who are familiar with various social networks

I don't think General Chat should be completely removed from the forum, as (when effective) it's a place where other can go to chat about virtually everything. If anything, we could merge everything into one General Discussion forum and get rid of all the other sub-forum (lifestyles, The Fame World, etc). Come to think of it, I was never a fan of having Off-Topic branched out into so many different categories, but never did get around to combining it all together.

I agree that all of the FB games should be removed. It was a popular section back when we had mods that had special access to items but now it's almost pointless.

I also concur about making it a support forum for not just fb but also other large social media sites. I think if that happens, the forum should be less facebooky. And by that I mean maybe you could add a twitter skin that uses those colors and fonts. Then you'd also need to get mods familiar with those sites

Yeah, off topic has too many subforuns

May one ask why you think that ?

Not sure if you have read the threads I have commented on and I do not intend to start a discussion on which threads I have or have not replied to in the Off Topic section but these ...

http://thesocialnetworking.forumotion.com/t17045-best-aggregate-services

has nowt to do with Facebook
http://thesocialnetworking.forumotion.com/t17039-tip-top-social-networking-job-site nor does this


http://thesocialnetworking.forumotion.com/t17013-make-his-dreams-come-true nor does this


http://thesocialnetworking.forumotion.com/t16983-discussion-on-possible-variations-on-facebook-accounts or this

That is why they are in the Off topic section


So...are you suggesting that' Off topic' section is removed from the Public area of this forum ?

I never stated that the Off topic is removed from the Public area. Im trying to say is that the topics that your moving, it to should go in a better section that fits well with it besides off topic. I think the off topic is pointless now and you can use something else that fits well with the forum.

Ohhhh it's JayJay

This forum is probably just a once or twice use forum so most of the members aren't really permanent -> Which means no new staff -> No new ideas -> No activity.

I'm just working on the tutorials whenever I have free free time.

Do you mean the entire site or just one section of it and, if one section of it,..which one please?




A forum is only as good as the Members who Register with it and contribute to/within it

That said, if you have a suggestion for a new section that might 'attract members' then please tell us !!

Decided to check in to see how everything is doing, nope everything is dead. The thing is if you get people especially moderators to create discussions people will become more active! Also advertising advertise on Facebook, Twitter you name it you need to spread the word out!
