What do you want from a forum?
uh ... add more smilies ... maybe tea related ... mmmmmm Tea
uh maybe host small site contests
Holiday theme ... like thanksgiving is right around the corner ... *looks around corner and yells "HI THERE" to it* not the corny style like overly traditional but something with leaves falling and a cute little turkey-fish ...
(just a joke) what about mustaches ? we could wear them and sing Jazz
thats my suggestions
Um. Smilies - well, I am not really a smilies fan, but I guess I can take a look around.....
Site Contests - well I would, but there has to be like entrants - its sad to host a contest that nobody enters. Assuming that we could get some entrants what ideas do you have for a contest?
Arrggghhh - themes with a holiday spirit.
Really, the best way to get the site going is to do stuff with the very small community we have already got. I was thinking of a Christmas gift set to members.
Though - I have to say - its a matter of posting and using the forum. We all use the shoutbox, and its fairly ok, but to the casual visitor the place looks like a ghost town as nobody really posts on the forum. Yet - we have finds area to post in, we have the uploads area for creators, resources section for posting tutorials - I can probably get some contests going, but that means we need entrants.
New content always helps too.....we can't just upload something and then nothing for ages and look all surprised that we don't have visitors. On the other hand, I do want nice stuff.... i.e. am not willing to take any old rubbish that is uploaded. Rather make it all myself than that. I am ready and willing to help people with any creating questions they may have for Sims, but I don't see where I can offer a better service than BPS or MTS.
Also, as time passes, many things have already been done and uploaded elsewhere, making it harder to come up with new, original, exciting ideas.
So I'd say: to get more new content, we need more creators/modders in here to post their materials. And I'm aware that that's like putting the horse behind the wagon...
