Default Plans?


I've noticed that less and less members are even bothering to make any posts. I know the usual..school and rl, but things can still be done. Any plans on getting the ball rolling?

It's just a cycle guys. It will pass. Not to be pessimistic or anything but some similarly themed threads have been posted a few weeks/months back. A lot of ideas have been thrown around and well, this still happens at some point... So if replies will be posted on this thread, they would most probably go along the lines of these:

GI Comeback Starts Now

Another phailed attempt

Who is hiding?

Rise of Guild Inn

So just stay active and participate in anyway. In a few weeks, activity would pick up again (hopefully).

Yeah,that's true..it's a cycle, but still we could do SOMETHING among the remaining active members to wake up the joint! Vital may be on to something with the team.

I know this sounds bad coming from a mod, but how many of these cycles can we go through? I mean at this point we are probably in the worst slump we've been in probably since re-opening.
I'm not pointing fingers since I'm just as much to blame as anybody else. Sure, we could have done some things differently but some things you just can't help; like loss of interest. :/

Hate to see it happen,specially when the lease has been renewed. It does look kinda bad; very little activity. I think the place could use new resources for one thing.

Have to agree with Chris. But like most of the members who are still here, I feel it would be such a waste to just let GI die.

Anyways, I think instead of trying to organizing something or trying to get a lot of people to join in on something, maybe we could just try to do our own thing. What I mean is, if you think new resources are needed, then by all means make tuts or stock packs or PSD packs. If you think battles will get interest back, ask for one in the battle section. It may take a while but the mods and toxic do drop by sooner or later and the battle will still be set up. And I guess the level of activity atm is still good enough to get a battle or two going.

Maybe, these small stuff would eventually get more activity. Or maybe not. Just do what you can do and let's see how it goes.

exactly, that's the problem. we plan and talk about all these things but then nobody ever follows through with them. either way, i'll still be sticking around for some chit-chatter...you're not getting rid of me that easily

I think people just aren't doing gfx like they used to.
Lots of other boards that I used to be on are totally dead and closed.
That's definitely a cycle. 'My generation' from when I started are getting older and are now adults with families and what not. Just gotta find that next group of newbies.

But regardless, I know that I've been real busy lately. And when I've had free time - I haven't been wanting to spend it on the computer. I still definitely have an interest in graphics, but just haven't been able to do anything for a while.
I'll try and get back into it. Hopefully others will find some time too.

I check the forums every day and post when I can. I'll try to step it up a little more though with comments and stuff.

I mentioned new resources as one possible idea because there are alot of dated stuff in there; dead links and stuff. I could find supplies i supposed,but i was hoping we could all pitch in and make those large packs to post on other forums.
There aren't enough active members to really consider doing something internally. I see lots of members who sign in and lots of visitors, but a very small amount actually post. Tell me,what can we really do when the sotw itself has pretty much died?
Gfx forums have most def seen better days, but there are a few that still generate alot of activity and i'm pretty sure people on those are busy with rl also. Just had an idea: the member roster numbers over 7,000..how bout sending automated emails to them inviting them to come back and be active?

Since there are some members who have a little bit more time to spend here,how about making a trial mod position or temp mod, to help move things along?
Talk may be cheap but progress has to start somewhere. I'm willing to round up some resources and make the previews. Starting on it now...

We've been there and done that with the mass e-mails.

And, one doesn't need to be a mod to start an activity or resource pack, etc.

Ok, cool about the emails..just trying to come up with some ideas to help the place.

I wasn't talking about becoming a mod solely for starting an activity or compiling a resource pack. The purpose would be to help with forum duties..ie, cleaning threads with dead links in the resource section; taking up sotw chores when needed..etc.

Look, i know my ideas may have been tried before, or they may not be feasible, but i AM trying to do something. The forum is just about quiet as a church mouse...

We do realize that you are trying to help as have many others before. But personally, I can't think of anything we could do that would sustain interest. I guess that would be the key - not only to rekindle interest but to sustain it.

Stuff have been done before, some of them repeatedly, and the only thing that's happened so far is that they rekindle interest. Unfortunately, that lasts only for a few weeks.
