Why I named this "Message to members" is because this is only for members to hear (Owner isn't included in this).
You all whine and say "Oh these forums suck because there is no one on"
Half of you just view topics and then never reply, which is stupid. The whole point of a forums is to be a community, real communities don't just stand around *viewing* people, they have conversations. If you posted more and then new people saw more then just 100 posts on a board maybe they will like it more here. Right now, the members make this forums dead. This isn't a flame thread, but someone needs to put a message out there.

Thanks for viewing this, I already know you won't reply,
Blake

Ya know. I really like you. First member to actually speak up on this matter. I'm rather impressed with that. You are right. A fair bit of members just look and don't post. If any member just posted once or twice a day we'd easily get 200+ posts a day.

Decided to Sticky the thread so hopefully people do see it and do Respond.

Lol, I don't think you realize who the main group you're talking to consists of.
Do you know what "lurker" means?
I haven't been around but maybe a week or two longer than you have here, but from what I've seen, 75% of this populace is made up of people who fit perfectly the description of the term above.

Also, many if not most or all of the users here use the shoutbox on the main page. It most closely resembles a clanchat.

Oh hey, by the way, they hate on RS here, and I personally don't have much vested interest in these forums because I don't roleplay, don't play Square Enix games, don't read weird mangas, and don't adopt and herald the Jappy culture over my own. ( I only joined because a friend asked me to...)
And judging by your signature and info you probably don't do much of any of the above either.

You should really consider a community before you join it... :/

I really don't see how my signature reflects on my posting, and I don't care if people hate on RS, I like it they don't...So what?

*goes to add Blake to his friend's list*

Blake is completely right. If you honestly take a look at the posting stats, EVERY staff member is in the top 20. The only active non-staff members we have, post-wise, are Valor, Lexaeus, and Kingroy. And as much as we love the three of them, that's pretty pathetic and sad. The rest of our members are basically wasting Blade's money. Then they get mad when the place gets shut down.

Agreed, 100%. You guys can't expect the staff to post as much as they can get in a day without help from the members, too. I know I haven't been active lately due to my health, but once I'm fully back I'm going to post as much as I can to keep this community alive because I adore the people I've met on here. You all should do the same.

I post if there's something worth saying in a topic. Like this one. Then again I didn't have much to say on this. People don't post nearly enough. I agree. Look at my shiny name. Now you must covet it and do your part to make it your own.

If I understand or feel passionate for a topic, of course I'm going to post in it. However, if it doesn't apply to me or I don't care for it, I mostly won't post. One of the more active areas is the Roleplaying section.

I agree 100%. With these many members, I thought my story would get at least one post a day. Just one comment so far (could get accused of double-posting with several chapters -_-)

I was just lurking the other day, saying to myself "Come on, people! Post something interesting!" I had no ideas of my own at that time, which is why I lurked.

I contributed some, too, with posts like Warcraft (with the first poster criticizing it), and Final Fantasy topics. I'll try to contribute more, but it's not a 100% guarantee that it'll happen.

You are too kind Blake. But honestly once I start my re-design there will be a lot of changes and the member's that don't post will have no choice BUT to post. For that reason alone this forum won't die and the plans and commitment I have to this site will make it what other site's aren't.

I've thought up at least 10 threads late at night (4am) that have interesting topics that everyone would've rushed to contribute ideas and opinions on but by the time I get on at my normal k-g visiting time the ideas and beautifully constructed/combined/associated/stringed words have gone and are difficult to conjure up again. See: Let the Grammar Nazi Battles Ensue~

Kuya Playing Piano (;~;)
Various threads on cooking
Architecture (how it works, what types of structures work best in varying situations, architectural projects worked on around the world)

and more early-in-the-morning threads (3am-5am) I imagined people viewing and posting in. I miss you guys.

— Mark Twain

 

“I divide my officers into four classes; the clever, the lazy, the industrious, and the stupid. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the highest staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy however is for the very highest command; he has the temperament and nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious is a menace and must be removed immediately!”
