    Traffic is dropping, maybe time for new stuff?

    I noticed in the logs the traffic is starting to drop. the posts are also starting to drop. people running out of things to say? We need some ideas to keep the place from slowly dieing off. the new / old design should be up pretty soon, I am working on a mod, that should help the search engines spider the site better. I guess the biggest thing bringing people to the site is the pics? I assume we should expand the section, scans should bring alot of pics. any other ideas? I know the downloads are helping bring some people to the site, I am working on a system that might make the download system better for the site, like making people sign up before they can download, and such.

    Those Ideas sound great Dan. Also before Gig post it, I will tell you that we always have periods where people just stop posting for a few weeks,.... In the old AO we had several times where trafic and post were seriously low due to work, school or other activities the members have....

    We could start a special forum to allow LIMITED advertising links for conventions and special Anime events. At least it could help in keeping advertising Spam out of the general forums...

    Some ideas I would suggest seeing as most people come onto the board and not the front page most of the time. I would suggest maybe the "most latest images Uploaded to the gallery" on the main board index? Also the old AO had a feture on it I think it was the top 5 latest topics started/replied to? That might also be neat.

    I just talked to a member today thats leaving because of the gallery rating system. The fact no one is posting. just rating. Maybe if we remove the just rating?

    Also I think we should get some more old staff back/new mods helping with the board?

    We already have plenty of staff. There aren't really any old staff to bring back except maybe Moon or Trunks and I haven't seen Strong Bad in a coon's age.
    Clan? What Clan?
    I'm the Master. I need no Clan.
