I think like a social site we can make it run through some topics like .
We can make a thread where we will say about the interesting moments of the day we are passing .
And also other topics which can be attractive for people .
Welcome to the Inn. And we have the Community Discussion for that.

This place isn't "going down", it's pretty much been like this for the last couple of years. It's affecting all forum communities and the only difference here is I keep paying the bills and have not taken the site down yet (allowing you all to move on ).

Glass and Vikter are right, the world has changed and people don't use sites like these like they used to 3-4 years ago. I'm not sure what the answer is and if we find it I can't imagine it will be anything like what we have now.

Extra mods wont help anything as our current crew is active enough, it's just the community in general that is in a lull... well a permanent lull. Like Vikter suggested I think we just do what we want to do, carry on has is, and if you want to see something or contribute then go for it, create topics and disscussion points, gather resources and spread the word to friends, it's all about the community so get involved and things will pick up.

Maybe if I had the time I had when I first set up GI I would put more focus on it myself but that's not going to change anytime soon. At the end of the day GI isn't going any where and I'll continue to keep the place up for at least another year (I can't actually imagine taking the place offline!).

It's very much appreciated that you take it upon yourself to pay the bills and keep the place online. I would beg to differ that the same is happening to ALL communities. I have seen a few places that have high activity daily. It's true that there is a drastic decline in the scene in general, with several forums shutting their doors permanently. I know things have changed and i've known that before i even came here.
As a member of this forum i AM getting involved, which was my reason for making this thread in the first place. I haven't been here long so i don't know what has happened or what's been tried already. I merely observed the status and offered some suggestions. They may have already been mentioned,but at least i'm making some effort. No need to chop me down for trying to care about the forum.

@Gremlinn

I don't think anyone's chopping anyone down. As you said, you haven't been here long and the people who have been here for a while are just saying what has been suggested, what has failed, what has worked, etc.

If it so happens that one or more of your suggestions have already been tried and have failed and some of the members say so, then take it as just that - something that has already been tried and has failed. It is not an affront towards you. And rest assured that your taking the time to suggest and to help keep the community alive is well appreciated.

I thought after my exam would be finished I would rock the GI. But it seem that GI dead. I am been online from 11: 20 to 12: 40 still no one came online..

But now I have to change my mind... I might be inactive or never come on GI again. I might come here but very little..... The reason is GI is Dead..

Nobody came online in the 1 hour and 20 minutes you happened to be online? No way

Seriously though, people still visit daily. Just because they don't visit at the same time as you (timezone differences are a cause in this), doesn't mean they don't visit at all.

And it's that kind of thinking that actually adds to the inactivity. No one came online while you were so you won't go online permanently...

^This. All you have to do is look at the "Total members that have visited the forum in the last 24 hours" and you'll see that other people logged in.
