    Re: Questions for the Members

    1. Why aren't most of you posting?
    -I do on occasions, when I find threads that catch my interest. Also to add I rarely make threads anymore myself either as since none of my past threads never really kicked off and also that when a topic I feel like creating a thread for comes up there is already a thread on it.

    2. Why aren't any of you participating in contests?
    -I do...mostly

    3. Why aren't any of you commenting in the gallery?
    -Again, I do. Especially since when you started the comment drive.
    4. Do you like the poetry section?
    -No interest in poetry myself. Sorry.

    5. Do you like the RPG section?
    -Oddly I NEVER looked into it yet. (@_@)

    6. Do you like the new credits system?
    -Sure, hope that we'll have more use out of it in the future.

    7. Is there anything you HATE about AO? So much that it inhibits your ability to participate in the community?
    -Mmmmm...not really, nor I think is worth mentioning. Hell, AO is still my #1 frequented forum.

    8. Is there anything you'd love to see and would inspire you to participate more?[/QUOTE]
    -Hmmmmm, not at the moment I guess.
    ->:Be descriptive in your posts or its like you didnt post at all:<-

    Re: Questions for the Members

    1. Why aren't most of you posting?

    I love posting, so I'll skip this.

    2. Why aren't any of you participating in contests?

    I've just started to participate. Maybe it's because many people don't have the ability (computer wise) to do work of the caliber most of your repeat participants have. Maybe you could figure out a way to pull them in with contests geared towards them. I don't have anything special, I mostly use my paint, but I try anyway.

    3. Why aren't any of you commenting in the gallery?

    I actually just found the gallery, I have posted a bit. I need to take the time and figure out how to post things there. It is kind of overwhelming though, maybe many members feel that.

    4. Do you like the poetry section?

    I like the poetry section, and I do enjoy reading many of them. However, one thing that does kinda bug me, is when I go to the new post page, and I'm looking for post, it seems like it's almost all poems. Even I do not want to read that many poems. Couldn't there be a way to separate the new post that are poems from the rest? Perhaps the new post poems could be at the bottom of the page. Then a person wouldn't feel like they have to wade through them.

    5. Do you like the RPG section?

    Honestly I have not had time to find out. I spend much of my time making things for others on my computer, and what time I have left, I just want to post. I had several new members asking me why they can't get in it. Since I have not even tried, I do not know. That could be part of the problem. People are having trouble getting in.

    6. Do you like the new credits system?

    Yeah, I like the credits system. It's like recognition for what you're doing anyway. It's like a silent pat on the back. Eventually I would like to buy colors or something. I'm not sure yet.

    7. Is there anything you HATE about AO? So much that it inhibits your ability to participate in the community?

    8. Is there anything you'd love to see and would inspire you to participate more?

    I'll have to think on that tonight. I'll get back to you after work tomorrow. I have a couple of ideas, but I'd like to flesh them out a bit.

    Re: Questions for the Members

    I like this topic as my desire is to see AO grow and thus I will be speaking as a long time member, putting aside my staff position. Overall it is just my opinions.

    1. Why aren't most of you posting?
    I find it hard to post sometimes due to my busy schedule and things I am working on, when you have only a few hours a day of "free time" and many interests which mostly are non-AO related then it becomes difficult. I still try to post several times a day on top of mod duties. However I would like to be able to contribute more "quality" to the site in this area. It is also sad to hear people saying there aren't quality threads but not doing anything to make them. Even a "bad" topic can be made into a good one if the right poster gets in there and salvages it.

    2. Why aren't any of you participating in contests?
    I do participate in as many as I can, either as a "host", prize contributor or actual contestant. I fear based on some responses that most aren't aware of some of the contests we have. Maybe we can have an announcement banner at the top of the page for the "main" contests. Much like the one that tells you to read the rules in the gallery. ALSO WE HAVE LOADS OF NON-GFX BASED CONTESTS! Look for them

    3. Why aren't any of you commenting in the gallery?
    This is a weak area for me given my time issues and browsing the gallery isn't big on my list of to-do's. I am trying to do this more and give people more than, "I love it" or "It Sucks" while at it.

    4. Do you like the poetry section?
    I love to write poetry so this is a sore thumb area for me, most people spew out loads of "crap" poetry and aren't using the area as a place to grow their abilities. I mean, great your in love or your kid is the best or your just emo and want to cut yourself. That is a majority of the section and the poems that are "great" are few and far in between and quickly over shadowed. Then there are the comments...can no one critique a poem? No one needs a "It's great" it is fine to say so but expand on it...tell them what was great about it.

    5. Do you like the RPG section?
    Yes, it is a great avenue for those who like to write, RPG and show their creativity. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to actively participate and it doesn't seem many others are interested in it.

    6. Do you like the new credits system?
    Awesome idea and I can't wait to see it expanded....soon.

    7. Is there anything you HATE about AO? So much that it inhibits your ability to participate in the community?
    The lack of community, I don't feel we are a community anymore. I don't see people trying to be friends or make the site grow, it is more this person has a "god-complex" this person is an "arse" that person doesn't care about you and wants nothing to do with you, this person thinks they have arrived, etc... There is no overwhelming respect for staff or even other members, when I was a noob or even a higher level member I wouldn't talk to others the way some do now and at the same time I felt people would respect your opinion even if they disagreed. Now it just seems people write you off as stupid or ignorant.

    8. Is there anything you'd love to see and would inspire you to participate more?
    More people caring about the site and making it grow, forget how things "use" to be and realize it is what you make it. AO is a great place to be...make it that way and others will follow. Drive change through example. If you want more of something, provide us with the stuff to do it. Example, you want more GFX stuff...bring more GFX people here, produce more GFX content show us a reason to have the things you want.

    Re: Questions for the Members

    1. Why aren't most of you posting?

    mainly because I'm busy, but when I'm on hols I try to be posting. I guess I post in 'bursts'.But I do have to disagree with 'there are no good threads to post in' because as aceman so wonderfully put it

    Quote Originally Posted by aceman67 View Post

    2. Why aren't any of you participating in contests?


    again the busy factor, but I do every now and then (includes SOTW, WOTF, some battles etc)

    3. Why aren't any of you commenting in the gallery?


    Again I probably do the burst thing and comment. But it does annoy me when people post crappy things like "OMG IT'S SO CUTE" I'm going to report the next one I see..sorry for my harshness

    4. Do you like the poetry section?

    I'm not poetic, so doesn't apply to me.

    5. Do you like the RPG section?

    Not really..it doesn't really seem to be working here, as much as I know people are putting in to get it to work, but it's obviously not working on this forum..

    6. Do you like the new credits system?

    Yes and no. No because I don't see the point of it ( I don't post or participate in things just to get points I don't even use) but yes because I guess it motivates other people to participate, so it is a good thing.

    7. Is there anything you HATE about AO? So much that it inhibits your ability to participate in the community?

    8. Is there anything you'd love to see and would inspire you to participate more

    For these ones, I agree with what Chief said:

You tell us what we're doing wrong--

    1. Why aren't most of you posting?
    I do post, just that some of us have really busy schedules, jobs, senior years, or probably just the skin of AO. It's like, having a rainy day and you've had a bad day, you go to the site and roam around, and all you see is grey. Not that I hate it! And also, there is noting interesting to post about, really. Even if we start our own threads, only some of the members post quality posts, regardless of the number of sentences written. Most of the time, the members won't bother to READ the previous posts before posting their ideas, which really "turns" me off. I HATE REPEATING THE SAME FREAKING IDEA AGAIN AND AGAIN!
    You spend so much time researching, evaluating, thinking, writing and so on ... just to find that some meber posts: -
    "No, I believe ____________________________________ so ... yeah"
    "Holy crap! I agree! What's up with the __________________________?"
    I hope you get the drift. Sometimes, we also get lazy, or get a bit annoyed when some member starts an argument for an irrational reason, or the Mods get the wrong idea and give infractions. Dx WeeEEeeEEeEEEEe!

    Some of us, are, some of us aren't. The thing is, the people who are new to graphic designing, poetry etc, they don't get much chances, or, some of us are too good, so that's probably the reason they might give up.

    If there is something worthwhile, other than a plagiarized image, or a continuous spree of posting your pictures, the same boring [ideas] stuff shown, other than that, I gladly do.

    Quote Originally Posted by tsurara View Post

    Like Hassun once said: -

    There is poetry here on AO?
    I mean, ask for tips and write something worthwhile, and express your feelings from the heart, not what just comes to your mind! It's great you're in love, I don't mind reading those poems, but the poems like, for example "Hell", "Hatred", "Pain" etc ... do something better, please.
    It doesn't matter what made you write that ... we just don't want to see a poem done in 10 minutes. Even if it is, and if it's intriguing and really deserves an applause, then .

    Quote Originally Posted by tsurara View Post

    Too long, and boring. Nothing interesting.

    Quote Originally Posted by tsurara View Post

    Nope, it doesn't make a difference. Only the posters which have 50&#37; or more spam in their posts ... get even more obliged to post. Just like
    "Ooooo o.o I agree ... so scary *shivers* thanks for the comment!"
    "Lol ^^ *hug him/her tight* Very well done, dear! Keep it up!"
    " ... That really touched my heart ________________________________"

    All the crap, and to make their posts seem long, they just press the enter key a lot! Like a space between every sentence! Even if the post seems long, it's CRAP!
    And, if it wasn't for the credit system, most of us wouldn't bother to post, ne?

    Will I get banned if I told you?

    Not at the moment, however, I would like the hosts of the contests to start contests for the people who are new to a particular field, in order to give them some confidence.

    EDIT!~
    Note this; If you have nothing better to post, restrain yourself from giving unecessary pity, comment, useless shit, advice when it's not needed, or say that "If that's so, you have no pity from me". Didn't ask for it, don't give it or anything which is not related to the topic ... kay???!?!

    EDIT 2!~

    #1: I do post but some days there are just to little interesting topics for me to post in.

    #2: I do not have the skills needed to enter in the contests.

    #3: Well I have been looking at some of the pictures and commented on one of two, I just don't get into the gallery often.

    #4: yes I do like the poetry section of the forum, it lets us express ourselves to you guys and gals.

    #5: Which rpg section are you talking about? the one in the top bar or the one in the forum area? I enjoy role playing games quite a lot, but there are just not enough people who are interested, due to the lack of imagination. as for the other rpg, in the top bar, never looked into it as such.

    #6: yes I do like the new credit system, and I have stated that to DB.
    but there are so many uses for the credit system that have yet to be utilized.

    #7: people who text type... I hate having to decipher what people are trying to say, because I am old school. everything was always written correctly.

    #8: I honestly cannot think about anything that would get me to participate more.
