IMPORTANT NEWS! Broadening our horizons

Post by DA on Thu Jan 24, 2013 7:32 pm

Archived Skype Discussion below. Read it if you have no idea what's going on.
Spoiler:
[10:46:29 AM | Edited 10:46:40 AM] Mentlegen: [2:34 AM] Simply DA:

<<< Guys, should I keep using the Halolz Favicon for our forums, or switch to the CoF Favicon?
A better question would be
[10:47:07 AM] Mentlegen: shouldn't we turn the mafia forums into a general forum like CoF and keep doing our mafia games?
[10:47:21 AM] Mentlegen: You seriously can't hope Shawn will fix the old forums
[10:47:48 AM] MrNaleIt: But the url is "halolzmafia.iftopic.com"
[10:47:54 AM] MrNaleIt: Halolz Mafia
[10:48:23 AM] Mentlegen: sowat
[10:48:32 AM] Vatonnage: BREAKING THE LAW
[10:48:34 AM] Vatonnage: BREAKING THE LAW
[10:48:40 AM] Roflcopter: 2hardcore
[10:48:58 AM] Mentlegen: We barely talked about Falcon in Church of Falcon
[10:49:03 AM] Mentlegen: we ar hardcores
[10:49:32 AM] Lia Yakumo: I make my own f****ng rules
[10:50:21 AM] MrNaleIt: BUT IT'S DA'S WEBSITE
[10:50:55 AM | Edited 10:51:45 AM] Mentlegen: IF YOU DON'T APPROVE ANARCHY
[10:50:57 AM] Mentlegen: YOU ARE THE DEMONS
[12:10:32 PM] Axel X: You forget that DA has the bigger D


[1:37:46 PM] Simply DA: [10:46 AM] Mentlegen:

<<< A better question would be
shouldn't we turn the mafia forums into a general forum like CoF and keep doing our mafia games?
And invite no-goodniks to our actually peaceful place?
[1:46:19 PM] MrNaleIt: Holyshit. This thing just got like really dark.
[1:47:10 PM] Lia Yakumo: We need more people
[1:47:19 PM] Lia Yakumo: The host queue is running dry, and less people are joining every round
[1:53:25 PM] Axel X: Yet at the same time, we need to keep out the riff raff.

[2:53:27 PM] Lia Yakumo: We're averaging one vote every ten hours.
2fast4me
[3:13:05 PM] Mentlegen: [1:37 PM] Simply DA:

<<< And invite no-goodniks to our actually peaceful place?
Why would we?
[3:13:29 PM] Mentlegen: We don't need to invite more people, people who only uses the forum for the other threads will join
[3:13:36 PM] Mentlegen: and may be convinced to play mafia
[3:13:47 PM] Mentlegen: or not, either way we won't get anything bad out of it.
[3:14:06 PM] Vatonnage: Plus you can just ban people you don't like
[3:14:11 PM] Vatonnage: BECAUSE POWAH
[3:14:53 PM] Simply DA: Instaban Furry and Kiru
That is all I'd most likely do
[3:17:24 PM] Lia Yakumo: We have active mods, what's the worst that can happen?
[3:21:12 PM] Simply DA: We need a thread for this.

So, gentlemen, we need to expand our horizons a bit. But before we do that, we must answer the question "Is this really necessary?" for which I devised the poll above this post.

The forums have been going through a pretty slow activity deficit, going into a direct nosedive.
People have suggested that we make this like CoF, I.E. more discussion oriented.

Please leave your thoughts and a vote to help me decide.

If we do decide that broadening our horizons is the right way, do not, I repeat, DO NOT go around advertising the forum to everyone else just yet.
We will devise a way to slowly but surely gain the members we need. Speaking of Member Control, Leo is right. We have 2, highly active mods (himself included) in this joint (+ me, but I don't really consider myself "active").


Uh... crap... I forgot what else I was gonna say.
BEGUN, THE GREAT DEBATE HAS.

I support this idea on account that we need more variety in these here forums..since we can only mafia soooo much.

Positives:

-We don't have to address news that affect our interests (e.g.: Videogames, anime, someone took over the world, something we wanna report) to the Skype chat every time someone logs on and notices for the tenth time.
-It'll leave more open discussion on Skype since we can micromanage discussions better
-More people and we actually have competent/active mods
-We just need to advertise this to the right people if we ever will
-We don't need all THAT many more people anyway since it's just for mafia
-We just may need it due to lack of people joining and shizzniggles
-Who the hell actually thinks CoF is coming back anytime soon

Negatives:

-Possibility of retards
-...well I personally can't think of much else.

Yeah that's just my two cents. Don't expect me to care unless we actually do things. Whether we need this or not is really up to the all of us.

Funny thing, my housemate asked to join just a few minutes before I saw this thread.

I don't really see the point of going massively public, and I really like knowing (roughly) who everyone is, but at the same time I would never be opposed to new members joining, provided as you've said, that they're not total douches.

As for expanding functionality, since we're always on Skype I don't see the point in adding general sub-thread, and look how Soul's effort turned out. But again, not opposed in the slightest if that's what is wanted.

I think that as long as we keep Mafia as the main thing and just have regular topics for downtime discussions it should be fine.

Yeah, we probably need more people. We need more fresh blood to lynch. And I think our mods can keep the riff raff out. Newcomers, however, would still need to adhere to hosting rules if they wish to host though.

We should probably enforce the prior rule of "Having played at least 2 games to host, or show enough knowledge of the game"
Yay or nay?

I'd say the number needs to be higher if anything, but then again, it'll be a lot more by the time they enter the queue and wait for their turn to come around.

As far as I'm concerned I hold no objection to this. The arrival of more activity with sub threads will at the very least have our little community talking some more without the need to Skype thread as said previous times.
So that's my short description on the matter at hand.

So currently, we have a great amount of people voting yes.


Gentlemen, I believe that after this upcoming mafia game, we will do a small hiatus so we can prepare the forum for incoming guests.

And no, the hiatus will not be as long as Shawn's current hiatus. (And besides, you will at least continue to post here and such)
