Or you know, doling out badges for Forum Activity, Contests wins and such. Of course steps need to be taken to ensure that people don't spam, but that has always been managed effectively in the Forums.

I think it's more of, we want people in the Forums, since people are only playing games now.

With threads like these you should just avoid all the riff-raff and get to the point. Don't request volunteers or make people wait like someone who shall not be named did.

Are you still sore about what *name censored* did? Shouldn't you be over that by now? Anyway, I feel I'm fully capable of creating, running, and managing my own forum thread. Did I ask for advice from anybody? No. I'm not the kind that accepts free help or advice when I don't want or need it, so don't waste your time.

Just post your ideas, ask others to post ideas, and most importantly, follow through.

If you wouldn't have started this whole thing, not to mention swinging the whole thread off topic, I probably could have accomplished that by now.

I probably won't bother talking about your thread ideas or what you have planned here, so you don't have to worry about me messing with those.

Is it not a little late to be posting that? I mean, you already ruined any ideas I could have posted with your assumptions and comments, not to mention your little seeds of doubt that you planted.

Also if you want admin help you probably should've contacted Ferret before creating this, otherwise it'll go unnoticed.

Do not treat me like a stupid newcomer Matrix, I've been here longer then you have. I have a 110% knowledge of how AG functions. I've got my reasons for doing it my way. I'll tell you flat out (nothing personal intended) I do not need yours (or any other users) help unless I request it.

I'm not trying to get into an argument with you GOM, but I think it would be better for all of us if you didn't post in this thread (just saying, you're more then welcome to contribute, but this is just dragging it off topic.)

I never was. It was just an example of what not to do.

This forum is for public discussion, people are going to oppose your ideas / views / etc. If you don't want that, create a private forum. Or alternatively, ignore posts that bother you and continue to what you wanted to do. Don't blame me for you not accomplishing anything by now, it's your own fault for getting side tracked. If people keep responding to my posts and I want to respond back, it'll happen. If our roles were switched, I would've ignored you.

Is it not a little late to be posting that? I mean, you already ruined any ideas I could have posted with your assumptions and comments, not to mention your little seeds of doubt that you planted.

I haven't responded to any specific ideas, just that you can't make people use the site and this topic will probably fail, like the others.
nichodemus actually posted a good idea, asking the admins to advertise the forum on their social network pages. They could also make a news post once a week or something.
The question is, why should they? What reason is there to increase forum activity? Why is it important? What is wrong with how the forum is now and how would more activity make it better?

I don't know how you got that, you seem very defensive here. You posted that you wanted admins and users to work together, I suggested something.

Just take it as a challenge; another reason to actually accomplish something.

I'm not trying to get into an argument with you GOM

Too late...

I agree there. The best defense is a good offense. [To xzeano321] You made the claim that we're here to do something. Show it.

One issue that they might care about is failure to properly report stuff, like bugs or glitches with games or the site itself. People will voice their concerns in game comments expecting the developer to read what they post instead of using the proper channels like the Support Forum where problems get addressed quickly.

Another thing is that more forum activity would mean more feedback for the site and ways to improve.

Someone (Xeano?), just make a document with our current ideas.

Let's not deviate into any other discussion, or risk ending up like our other attempts. This goes out to everyone.

That only failed because of what "he" did.

This forum is for public discussion

...Of the topic at hand. So far you've been successful at swinging the topic to this discussion between you and me.

Or alternatively, ignore posts that bother you and continue to what you wanted to do.

Your assumptions and previous (for lack of a better word) attacks on my idea and plans for this thread before you even saw what they were is not helping in my effort. You will notice nobody else has really volunteered since?

I haven't responded to any specific ideas, just that you can't make people use the site and this topic will probably fail, like the others.

That's what I mean. Who said anything about making people use the site? Where did you get that?

I don't know how you got that, you seem very defensive here.

No kidding...

You posted that you wanted admins and users to work together, I suggested something.

Did I ask for suggestions or advice? No, I didn't. Feel free to post them, but do not (I repeat DO NOT) say "you should have done this" to me, I do not like help from others without request. Nothing personal against you, but I do not like people thinking that they need to help me.

I've had about enough of this discussion to be honest. I've already wasted more then enough time on this whole thing. Please do not continue it any further, since it could become a personal issue before long.

I agree there. The best defense is a good offense. [To xzeano321] You made the claim that we're here to do something. Show it.

I'm still working on it. I'll have the summary of the thread and stuff posted today, as well as my other ideas. (Whether they are going to live up to all my talk in the past two pages....)
