I'm gonna do what I don't usually do on this forum anymore and express my opinion which really goes hand in hand with most of everyones.
Reducing restrictions on the forum, having a Anime part of the community is fine because we also have hardcore gamers and spammers and lot's of other categories we all have the right to do here what makes us happy as long as it doesn't violate any of our presently set rules. I remember the forum update suggestion a while back from dyls, and I think that something like that needs to happen.
Updating the forum inviting players to check it out here and just ending the pointless spam, I am sorry to say guys I am sick of the recycled jokes and Ryan nothing against you but potatoes... It was funny for a little while.. But you should reduce your posting about potatoes j/s.
A forum tutorial may also be useful to teach those who have never used a forum how to use it.
EDIT: Hows about I do some community mass message this weekend? Drive in some traffic from the game client.
That sounds great Seth! Also we should start a photo-shop contest to win a lot of blues, like a banner contest if there are X amount of entries or more the top banner (voted on by mods and top community members) that player wins 1000+ blues or something, this forum used to have art work original posts and a little more activity + contests. I think in order to drift back into what this forum used to be we have to orient ourselves more towards rewarding for being a good community member etc.
What do you guy's think?
