Maybe we should just post more in forums other than the "Aquarius - Village of Spam" section. I was hoping more people would do so, but didn't know how to address this.
But let's be honest, spamming is great fun. x3 However, we should use our brains every now and then too lol.

Unfortunately, after you've been spamming for about a year, it starts to get boring, and nobody else is going to stop spamming. I've tried to put up some more thoughtful topics, but they die quickly.

Edit: I want to say thanks to jake for bringing this up. It's been on my mind for a while, but I'm not bold enough to actually put it out there.

I too would like to thank jake ^^

I made 2 new topics that got no responses, even though one was in the spamz0r section lol. I tried to liven up your politics thread though but it seems like nobody else is interested...

More topics plus maybe some topic revivals would do the trick?

EDIT: Another problem has to do with the forum rules. Since we can't post in the same thread two consecutive times, it sort of disallows old thread bumps and topic revivals if you were the last person to post in it...

We have a facebook page, and if you remember Spark suggested a system for recruitment rewards. The biggest problem is that GS fans are few and far between.

Well, keep posting on some other threads regardless. We have many of them that are just sitting there... waiting for someone... all alone. ;u;

Maybe someone can go to another GS forum and "Suggest" this forum to people. It's not like were trying to get them to abandon their old forum, but to try another.

You're being mentioned at the GSAR all the freaking time, so... that's already happening.  I suggest instead to rework the visual layout of the forums to be more appealing - that's one of the big things the GSAR has going for it - it's easy on the eyes.  This one... those sprites are kinda...

It needs work.

How is that possible?

Well, Rolina and I would occasionally talk about what's going on over here in the various chatrooms we got going. There isn't as much discussion about TLW on the forum, although I've been working on an affiliation form for GSAR's site. TLW and GSAR haven't affiliated yet, which is surprising.

Yeah, no need to worry bout the home page, J. The guy who makes the stuff there and made this forum is usually away. The home page is never updated anymore
Title: Re: the forum (Case Open)
Post by: Merc on July 25, 2013, 05:16:14 AM
That isn't neox, but yeah :P

Honestly, don't even worry about the front page. It isn't really being used for anything, and it hasn't actually been updated in a long time. Sea King, our founder, is nearly perpetually gone, and he's the one who can take care of that stuff. Just post on the forums and focus your energy there.
