Well, I just honestly don't know what to say.

It's coming up to have been up for about a month now, and maybe it's just me, but it just seems to be lacking. One of the biggest things that comes to mind, is that we've got more than 10x as many users registered here, compared to here, while we've got more than a few dozens of regulars here, it's still like people haven't noticed it or whatnot.

I mean, no, the site and the board don't have to fully linked and connected, but I just thought I'd be seeing more numbers, and more people from here join up on there.

The content is fine, but I think it could be better. Sparda and I put up old reviews from the old site a year ago, and it's been a few weeks -- still nobody seems to have claimed them, other than a few members.

I know I could be updating the site with more and new things myself, but exactly with "what"? This is another major thing -- input. I've hardly got any input at all from members, and ideas, suggestions, and whatnot, so I'm basically just sitting here with my own ideas, that could or could not be that great. I'd just rather have more people give me suggestions, because I've always wanted our community to be a community for the community - basically run by you guys, without you guys, this place is absolutely nothing.

I just don't know what to say. I could be submitting things myself, but I'm sure a lot of you have seen how busy I am (big hint, when was the last time you saw me on AIM?). And hey, maybe that's just everyones issue at the moment also, maybe you're just all busy?

Maybe I just need to give it more time? I don't know, it never seemed like the site "sparked up!" extremely fast as the board did when it was first put up (huge amounts of people registering, 300+ posts a day, etc), and now it just seems to gradually becoming a drag.

I'm not saying I'm going to give up with it, not at all -- but I just thought I'd get my opinion out here, maybe get some answers or opinions from yourselves.

Dude, I didn't even know you had put anything up there yet. I've registered, and I'll take a look around and leave some feedback on what I think could be changed.

But... uuhhh... if the forums are the same thing as this (linked), then... er... what activities to we need to partake in once we join the site? :/ I'm kinda lost there.

I actually didn't know there was a main site either...not all boards have one, and some that do, the main site is almost totally overshadowed by the board (e.g., Acmlm's).

I've contributed a review; all my others kinda sucked, so I'm rewriting them completely. Additionally, any other content I might write (a walkthrough of any sort *gulps*) would take a long time.

Have pateince, that's all I can say.

I'll put in some reviews, I need to keep doing them so I get better. Still kinda "eh" with them. And I need to play more games. I reviewed The Suffering, and think it's my best, but it still needs work. I'm not really good at rating graphics and such to well.

I'm surprised so many didn't even know about it ...

There was an announcement up for a good couple of weeks, this thread has been stickied since ... etc.

Nobody reads stickies anymore, man. People are just going along with it, not really paying much attention. That's the present, man. That's what wrong with the World, man. No one "knows" things. It's a shame, man. And...yeah.

Uhh... yeah. Stickies aren't the way to go. I've been ignoring them until recently. They're just so hard to miss.

i knew about it cause i read the announcement. im just lazy as fuck and dont want to register yet another name on another site that i probably will never go to. (no offence)

A main page is really nothing of my concern, cause as long as i have a forum to post on, it does the same good for me.

I don't know. It could just be me, but I don't really like it. I'm not complaining and I think it's cool, but i just don't have any interest in anything on it. I just much rather hang around the board. Like I said, I don't mean to complain it's just sort of not my thing. *shrugs*

Kinda agreed with Makura there.

But then again, Hun. Xeo is asking for suggestions on what to do with it. I'm assuming that means things to add to it, etc. So if you have any suggestions, like with stuffs you like to do online...

I'm drawing a blank at the moment. Will PM/post when I think of something.

That's what I'd figure. Most new sites aren't going to become instantly popular, especially if you don't have much content.
Plus, look at your competition. You're going to have to stand out somehow to keep people coming back.

Well, Xeo, let me put it this way. My eyes are not drawn to the top of the screen at all. It's like, I know it's official, so it's like my brain registers "boring" automatically.

Ok xeo umm... sorry to say, i'm not sure about the rest of these guys but i never go to the main site. I knew about the board before the site... Sorry but you should atleast be happy you have a good board that is relatively popular and is full of good people.

Well, I never said I'm -not- happy about the board.

I just find it interesting that the site has little to no activity at all, when this place is pretty big. Then again, this place has slowed down a lot also.

I think I'm going to try to contact a few members here, but really, all of this input isn't helping at all. I've just gotten the impression that the majority of you, don't want to bother with the main site. That doesn't upset me or anything, but at the same time that doesn't help.
