What is your problem? Surely everyone that you want to keep any sort of relationship with already has your details. I can't see the issue with whether this forum survives or not.
I think the 3 pages of discussions so far render this comment mute as people DO have an interest in keeping this forum alive, but that's just my opinion on the matter.
Bask you misunderstand again:
It isn't about investment, it's about having someone who actually uses the forum run and improve it. I could add avatar/medal/reputation systems or get PPs invovled in running the forum to enourage them to encourage their members here, at least something new to look at. At the moment we just have years of defeaning silence.
I don't know what you want about "digs". If I name people then I'll get flamed by you, if I try and be subtle I'll get flamed by you - so there is no way to discuss legitimate problems since we have to tiptoe around people's gargantuan egos. Really you probably just want to find a reason to attack me.
Goku, I really have no interest in attacking you or anybody for that matter on an internet forum. I was/AM actually genuinely interested in how you think we could move the forum forward, you've given a little more detail in your post now which is a start.
The "Dig" I mentioned in my last post was to try and signify the above again, that I am interested in hearing what you have to add, and I'm not trying to just shoot down your ideas with what I'd written about investment in the forum, infact its completely the opposite I'd like to discuss it further.
So from your idea so far, I see its still very much erep based. Therefore do you think the forum should stay erep focused rather than divulge into various groups? What happens when/if erep fails though, which is seeming more and more likely with what is a daily drop in the active userbase?
I'm assuming your also talking about having not just a Forum Admin (Butjam) seperate to the Web Admin (Kumnaa) but infact having a person/persons operating as both, whom also plays erep or is active in the community. To me that's an idea I can also agree with, and am sure others do also. What we therefore need is a reasonable plan to approach Kumnaa/Butjam with in order to progress further.
