Increasing the forum size

Post by Talos on Sun Feb 26, 2012 7:04 pm

Now, this forum is very young but it is also quite small currently. While that may or may not change in the future, I felt that it might be an interesting dicussion to hold if we work on ways to expand. It will give us a new topic and help clear the forum of that ''new'' feeling.

I feel that Creative Writing may be a nice way to do this; get some good quality stories and get them known and we'll surely attract members.

Well, i could put up a story i've been writing...

But, i'm no good at fanfiction, and i don't think my original works are going to be very popular(simply from being original) Neutral

A few color/gui changes could definitely spice things up though!

Well that's cool!

Kickass! Though maybe we could make it so that the result is displayed in the user's post rather thab making a whole new one?

Also, I could post some fanfiction... I'm not the best but I make do.

Or, I could run some rp or quest threads... those seem to be well liked (Rps, for the moment. Don't think there's enough of us yet to justify a quest.)

Aye, that'd be nice. Also: multi-quote function could use a fixing, it's not working for me?

And.. Depends, what were you going to run? Very Happy

Hmmm.. hard to say. I would like the forum's first rp to be special. To be something that will be remembered. Something like Sb's Executionor thread. The kind that can inspire others.

So obviously, we need to think about it....

Sb executioner, i mean.

It was a thread long, long ago on SB. Debatably, it was the first rpo in the general forum that eventually lead to the formation of the BROB forum. It pitted SB in the Star Trek/Wars verse ( I cannot remember which) With their own Executionor (The Star Destroyer) and let them loose. It was epic, since this was before Sb got tired of the rps, it was massive and widely popular. Garnaring overn 60 pages ( I believe.) Eventually, it died. But years later, it was the inspiration for the Sb in ST thread that would arguably begin the wave of rps that would eventually create the BROB forum.

Huh. Interesting.

Well, it was a sci-fi based rp, which kinda fits with SB's sci-fi theme.. so what's Epic's 'theme'?

I don't think we have one yet. That'sone of the things the RP would be geared towards. Developing some kind of theme that we could run with and give to the rest of the forum

The theme I would be going fore could be...

Well, epic.

Epic battles, epic story, just plain epic.

Obviously, that is very hard to do. But I would not be opposed to giving it a try.

As to the rp, what about a pokemon one? An epic Pokemon one, I mean. I'd need to work hard on it, but I am sure I could fit ''epic'' in there somewhere...

Hm...

How about a pokemon theme'd thread where you start with a legendary, but it's a weak legendary? And you have to work your way up to ballzing everything. That, or you get some monster/kaiju/inhuman-thing as a pokemon, rather than a generic in-verse one?

Well, actually.

What if you aren't a human at all? You're the pokemon. At the start, you are weak. Low levelled and barely able to hold your own. You must survive and avoid trainers but your destiny is something more. You must grow stronger, become better, eventually you will lead the Pokemon against the humans with the fate of all Pokemon kind in your hands.

Thoughts?

Did SB ever advertise on other boards? If we have small but loyal community, we can dervtise but I'd like to get the forum balanced and up and running before we even think of anything like that.

No point in attracting people if there is nothing to hold their interests, after all.

Tips On Increasing Forum Popularity

Post by Lord Archeneon on Tue Feb 28, 2012 1:54 am

I found something sickening today, my forum address does not show up in google when I type in its name "EpicForoums." There are many threads just like mine on the internet that have very similar names. My efforts to promote this thread might've resulted in increasing the popularity of other threads. I must do something that will make my forum truly unique.

I might need to even change the name and web address. If I don't, then any further steps I take to promote this forum could end up being useless. The catch is that if I do, I will be practically starting over, and all the time I spent trying to promote this site thus far will go down the trash. What do you think I should do?

I've been thinking about strategies...
I could make a huge amount of sock puppet accounts.

I could find some software to boost my forum views, but I will need some program that can rapidly change IP addreses. This strategy is a dirty one, so I want to avoid.

Please share your ideas. Thanks

Edit: One more thing, I cant thank you all enough for spending the amount of time you did making posts. Over 100 posts in a single day.

Uh... no offense but you don't seem to be truly good at the role of admin. I admit, you're still growing into it but your first thought when considering hoiw t ogather populairty should not be ''Sockpuppets! Sockpuppets EVERYWHERE!''


That said, I do see the problenm and my advice is basically to continue on as we have been doing anyway. That is, generating iinterest by having genuinly interesting disccusions, an immerise atmosphere and generally being a pretty nice place to post.

Basically this. If we're going to be popular and have people, i'd want it to be with some semblance of legitimacy. After all, how are we expected to hold them if we have nothing in the first place to get their attention? A name change could be good, simply because "Epic" is a common name, and the 'halofight' part of it makes it just obscure enough to not accidently pop up to people. Though i do admit that that would sacrifice a good bit of ground that we've achieved.

EDIT: It would also be nice to work out *all* the kinks before we start advertising it largely. The multiquote function still doesn't work Razz We do have somewhat of a 'dedicated but uber-small' community in the form of Talos, :-), Senmut, and myself. Active and approachable mods would be a nice thing to see too.

I just realized that I would not be sacrificing anything to change the name and address of the forum. The only members here are us, from spacebattles. All my attempts to promote this site has failed so far, so it wouldn't matter if the name changed. The forum, the design and all the posts wouldn't change.

I intended for this forum to be a place to mainly discuss fantasy, science fiction, and videogames. So what do you think would be some good forum names?

I came up with many different names, but I keep finding websites with similar names on the internet.
After brainstorming and web surfing, I came up a list of fairly unique names beginning with "the illuminated..."

TheIlluminatedForum
TheIlluminatedDome

Of those, TLF(forum) is my favorite.

Just throwing stuff that sounds sort of cool out there:

TheCitadelForums
LegionForums


Though honestly, a name change isn't the root cause of our issues with bringing people in. Good content is first and foremost.

I know what you're saying, good content is the most important part, but the name is somewhat like the cover of the book, and the content is like the pages. Overall, the content is more important, but the first thing people see is the cover. I also realized epicforums was too cliche. I'm currently stuck with .halofight. I'll have too buy a domain.

Edit: After some promotioons, I finally have two new member. KoolKat and Grizzly Griswald.

Currently, there is still only a few of us, and after reading your posts I realized the best strategy for making this forum grow. First, we need to make a few good threads with some quality content, and then we should try advertising the forum immediately after. If there is are no responses after a few hours, then you should add more content to your threads, and then try promoting again. Also, try not to make threads based on content that very few people will understand, there are very few of us, so we need to be able to understand everything in our threads.

I will be donating 100 points to members who can prove that they promoted the thread. If you are going to try to promote the thread, be sure to show people this link http://urbaniteforums.halofight.com
