enough is not said....


and the whole admin send a link thing can only work if people from the big alliances are participating, but well know how that ends up, someone blaming someone else for backstabbing and drama ensues.

Change it from 3+ to PG-13. Seriously, we aren't allowed to post anything.

Suggestion number two: Stop the whole "mr a stalks mr b and mr b stalks mr c and mr c stalks mr a+b but it's fine because we're all anime characters" bullpoopy. It's not funny. It's not new. It's just dumb and old. You don't need to post that shugar in every single thread.

And Ryan, you're not a potato. Even though your posts here as just about as productive as one.

This. Enough said.

made me lol

i remember like 2-3 threads with plenty ideas how to fix the forums, but all were ignored

im thinking a hole section under spam just for the potato :D, but as out game "target" players fall under the pg13 category i would like to keep it that way, sure they might know the words and and how to use them and so on. but it goes passed that. when we keep it pg13 it helps keeps the smut and the filth out of the forums.

Not true. Just because I dont want to have sexually oriented conversations on this forum does not mean that "you cant talk about anything". Be reasonable. Like I said, there are plenty of places out there for that sort of thing. The BattleDawn forum is simply not one of them.

Please. Please. Pretty please find something else to talk about. ;)

Thank you!

EDIT: Hows about I do some community mass message this weekend? Drive in some traffic from the game client. ;)

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.

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?
