Forum wipe?

Post by Shokio on Tue May 31, 2011 12:19 am

I'm considering doing a complete forum wipe. We'll still have the quick replys, chatbox, forums, etc intact, it will just be a wipe of the posts and maybe even all the accounts. I'm considering this because most people don't like coming to a dead forum full of old posts - people like fresh starts.

I understand that some of you are proud of your status and post-count here on the forum though, which is why I'm considering NOT to. We also have quite a lot of registered members (over 700)

But I'm not going to decide on this myself, it's up to you guys. Should we wipe the forum and start anew or try to bring it back as-is?

Helllllll naw,man.I understand why you wanna wipe it,but if the active members post new stuff(like i'm going to do now),a wipe of everything wouldn't be necessary.

At the moment I don't really think I have any posts that has any information I need to keep so I would say do it. But on the other hand I think others might have posts they wanna keep as references or just the information they posted.

I think you should get rid of topics that we don't really need. That would be all.

Deleting topics will erase your post counts to 0 I think.

Just my 2 cents

I've run a few forums before, and usually a forum full of old posts by members that aren't there anymore are depressing to visit. I think a wipe (or god forbid a new forum or updated look), would probably be in the best interest of attracting new members. But I definitely understand keeping the memories alive as well. I'll refrain from voting as I have been a member for a few minutes and don't feel like my opinion should hold that much weight lol.

I'd say a wipe would be a good start. those of us who are the oldies should be the new moderators and admin of the site, with all the newbies being able to earn moderator or admin status through the time they spend on the forum. also a new design and a new name since the next gen is only a year away and the next gen nintendo platform's name is apparently going to be revealed this e3. Though I think we should keep the network part of the name since it fits the original ideals of the form. I could also make a new ad once we finalize the new network. but even if we don't wipe the forum we need whoever the new admin and moderators are to go through and clean out all the spammers. anyways, glad to see the rebirth of the wii network; looking forward to helping to rebuild it up to what it used to be.

A clean up of the forums is a good idea, but only certain parts that are either irrelevant now or just spam. Things like reviews and guides can stay though.

Well if you all decide to start fresh with a new forum, be sure to hit me up. I could definitely make a snazzy new forum for you guys if you'd like =). Maybe you can decide the color scheme based on the cafe's colors Wink lol.

*edit*

Here are two forums I've made in the past just for an example of something nice you could make using a simple forumotion forum (I can tell this forum is a forumotion forum as well).

http://bangbang.forumotion.net/ This was a clan forum I ran for awhile, we ended up disbanning the clan last summer, but I thought the forum was really nice looking. We also had more user accounts that had a lot of posts, but we had to delete a lot of accounts due to too much drama. Thankfully that's something I doubt we'd have to worry about as much on a forum that isn't based on clans.

http://theheartbreakers.tk/ This is another clan forum I helped create, while the clan using it is still active, the forum doesn't get too much attention anymore as most of the members use the facebook group we created more frequently. It's also running off of forumotion.

So like I said, if you guys would like me to make a nice forum for you, I'd be more than happy to. It's like playing the Sims, the best part is building the home Wink lol.

If you're going to try and bring this site back to life by doing a forum wipe, don't just stop at that. Give it a new design, change anything that needs changing and try to make this a NEW and IMPROVED site, not just an empty shell of something that once was. It could be a great opportunity to create a better wii network.
