Welcome! Please grab a cup of coffee, and one of those delicious donuts most kindly donated by R2.

As you can guess from the title, this is yet another attempt at solving the AG activity problem. This problem has been ever present since late 2010. Many reasons as to the cause have been presented, ranging from a much delayed release of AG3, to lacking of a community manager, or the end of the flash gaming era.

I do have a couple of ideas concerning activity and how to increase it. Whether these are the keys to solving the issues at hand or not is unbeknownst to me, but I most certainly feel it is definitely worth the effort.

I'm not going into details - yet. Firstly, I'm going to need a few volunteers. More the better, but not more then 20 (20, yeah right...) Don't volunteer then become inactive that would not be beneficial to anything.

Looks like the change has taken place!


Only from the profiles/forums. It still says Community from the main page

An Edit button is a more complicated fix. Also, editing can lead to trolling - so we would need to figure out how to approach that carefully.

So your answer for making a complex feature viable is to add complexity?

I mean, it's not off the table. But that's a bit harder to do. The reason you see it more frequently in other place is because most people use off-the-shelf forums, ours are made from scratch (with love).

Could somebody help me gather a few interesting forum links to pass around to admins tomorrow? Just 3-4 would be good, and I can send them around to see if it gets them involved.

This is the greatest day of my internet life (to a certain degree.) Thanks Ferret, now we just have to wait and see if it makes a difference... (Make sure and thank the others in the office, personally, from me.)

Gosh, I was looking over the threads you guys picked to send out the e-mail today. But the reality is we need to understand that a lot of other admins are busy folks, we want to keep the threads fairly simple. Even as great as some of the selection you picked are.
