we are all losers
Quote from: jax on 2015-10-12, 15:33:13I stand by my vision of rjhowie being the one turning the lights off. New place, same scenario.The "criticism" of the US on this forum is beyond stupid. My own well-reasoned insights into American foibles are of course the exception.I entirely disagree with that and I will not align with any solution that passes by member's censorship.There's millions of people always criticizing the US and they are not here. The criticism on the USA is not the reason of our concerns about the number of members and I will never accept a witch hunt against those who helped to build this forum.Rjhowie is an asset so much valid for this forum as any of you and that includes me. And I'm not suspect of any ideological sympathy with him.I'm certain that any American proud of his heritage would recuse such a treatment of favor and protection. Americans are not children to need others to defend them.Of course jax is just having a good moment of joke, but what I said is to be taken in account.

That said a forum would be too bland without some spice, it's just that things go too far too often.So let's all cool it a bit.
I mentioned topical posts earlier. If there is a newsworthy event in Lyon, for example a train crash, then a thread on "Train Crash in Lyon, was it terrorism?" may well be found by the flurry of people googling for information on the Train Crash. So topical posts can attract more into DnD.
@Frenzie, random idea, maybe we need some kind of blog platform, to get more users and content for search engines?
We should use an old tactic, turn the Forum a restrict and very select Club. Than all the populace wants to get in... Seriously, it could work. Add to the header "Only by Invitation".
@Frenzie, sure, but it could be moderated or limited to selected forum members (manually or automatically, based on amount of posts).
@Emdek - Hi! --- Hope things are panning out on your side.A question; there has not been the take-up of discussion type posters we had hope for across from your Otter Browser Forum. Do you think your lot know they are welcome, indeed wanted, to post? Can you think of anything that can be done on your side to encourage them. I did wonder if a sticky thread asking for interest would help to entice some to take part. I suspect that quite a few read the stuff but don't post.
If we could free human creativity first then recruiting more people to this forum should be easier.
Not only we. This forum is a pond removed from its old stream of fresh water, there are many such. First we get stagnant, then we start to stink, and finally we'll be overgrown by weed and dry out. We are not the only ones to smell funny, decay is all around us. At this stage it is not too late to do something about it, we just don't know what.[...]But if we continue as we do, there will not be a we when this forum is twice as old as now.
