A bit late here, what's going on?

Better late then never, but I'm afraid this thread has about fulfilled its purpose. Some of the greatest discussion in the history of AG has been conducted in this thread.

Thaboss has decided to become active again; how can he help?

Make newcomers feel welcome, create new threads, post everywhere... That's about as much as any one individual can do.

Well, I guess this thread has about had it. Our yearly summit on Activity has been conducted, and concluded. Any final statements before I request the thread to be locked up? (Not closing because of Sal, but rather because I was going to have it locked anyway before he opened his big trap.)

A statement from pang.

Go post. Stop wasting all your time trying to find a quirky/creative way to initiate activity and actually initiate it yourself. Don't let threads die, and don't be afraid or disheartened to post in a thread.

Are you quite through with bagging on me and my thread? Did this thread stop activity in the Community? No. Is this thread the center of activity? No. Do I or anyone else only post in this thread? No.

Please note! If you're going to post in this thread, DO NOT repeat what pang, and everyone else has been saying for the past week. I'm tired of it, and I consider it a personal insult (since I made the thread and I'm maintaining it, and you guys are making me feel like I'm doing something wrong.)

You didn't do anything wrong xeano. The fact is that it is very difficult to raise activity. Whether there is activity is controlled by the users. If they opt to do nothing and think about the old days, fine. At least you tried, xeano. Points for effort. The reason you are getting bashed is because there have been a lot of these threads due to other users (*cough* sal) trying to do the same thing. They all generally come to the same conclusion. People need to better the community individually. Group things like this don't really work, so it's not your fault. People just need to go and post of their own free will. That's how it gets better. Now were just sitting pointing fingers and nothing is being done. Good try xeano, but these sort of thread all come to the same conclusion. Just go post and maybe it will get better.

Relax..if I'm insulting you, I apologize. As pick already said...the idea is a nice one, but in due time it just turns out to be counter-productive. When this first started I was excited about the idea.. but as it continued on I saw that instead of filling our times with posting in threads and making activity ourselves, we were just thinking of ways that could possibly-maybe-potentially-oh ever so slightly get newbies to possibly-maybe-potentially-oh ever so slightly to get on the forums and start creating activity for us.

It's not so much you, but everyone repeating the same thing. You know, like that story about the Mom nagging the kid?

After the initial success, I had considered closing the thread, but I thought I would see if it could still produce anything, so I decided to wait a while. Obviously I didn't get the results I had hoped for, and I am going to close the thread (by tomorrow.)

but everyone repeating the same thing.

If you can't connect that this concept has been done way too many times in the past, I hope you consider everything in this thread a personal insult.

Thread has served its purpose, and will hereafter be closed for the time being. If a time ever arises where the A.G.C.A.I. is needed again, I will most gladly bring it back.

Thanks for your time, thoughts, ideas, and comments pertaining to AG activity. I believe that great accomplishments were achieved in this thread, and I hope that the effects will be felt long after it's closed.

Thank you again.
