Hear me out here, this is not going to be easy but nothing worth it is easy :whew:

 

Here we are a bunch of old farts, you are not going to make a video game forum popular with old farts who are closer to death than the Xbox, you need young blood.

 

New generations are oversensitive so they will run away at the sight of lack of a safe space. Well not all but many. So you need something more appealing than political correctness and that is

 

Two words: Battle Royale

 

Make a forum where people join factions and they fight and debate each other until death/ban until just one remains (then dead users can create new users but start at level 0 or with less assets to fight others or with penalties for posting, whatever). The forum will change its theme depending on which faction is winning. It will be a bloodbath but BR is so popular now that it will attract young people. Take out the whiteboard because this needs some intense designing sessions with booze, coke and hookers.

 

Build something new, fresh and crazy and that can create conflict for ages and they will come, that's what Jesus was trying to teach us and we killed him, which was a good thing.

 

You're welcome.

tbh I don't know why I'm still here. Maj is gone, the only thing keeping me at this forum is ramza's failures and aza's bullshit. And Boss' occasional input. 

 

I should retire. jimbo will do without me. He was hosting his ghost town for 2 years after all. 

 

Goodbye :mjcry:

They aren't breaking any specific rules so hard to do anything. The only suggestion could be to just have one thread where all the bickering can go on but it never works.

A major problem this place has is that most threads very very quickly just turn into 1 on 1 or 2 on 2 back and forths (I know I can be part of this sometimes) that pretty much hijacks the thread on to some other topic and stops any further input from anyone else cause who wants to post in a thread that has 2+ pages of back and forth between a couple forumites.

If cooke wants this to stop I can try to moderate it more but it will cause the usually whining and ppl threatening to not return. 

It's because all of the left-leaning people keep their shit in the politics thread, and all the alt-right people make new threads for every perceived slight against them.  Gouk, Jerry and I aren't the ones making threads about MAGA hat kids, feminists, abortion (but really women, tho), or hilter was just misunderstood bro.  We keep our shit in the politics thread.

 

If you want to clean the political threads off the front page, just make a containment thread and enforce it.  The Official Alternative Facts Thread: Truth is not Truth.

 

EDIT Prime example of containment thread material:

 

 

It's got fuck-all to do with games.  :]

Well Dynamite came after I checked GS SW. So we can check other console war sites.

That place is pretty dead too, this whole system wars thing is dying out.

There's a half dozen gaming subreddits that won't perm you for an opinion. Nobody is coming here.

I didn't see mike leave because of a Hitler (scare-word) sympathizer. 

 

In fact, I saw him get more active on the forum within the past 2 weeks, more than ever before. 

 

Funny how that works.
