Re: Forum Meta Thread

I was thinking what IppE said, though development seems more appropriate. It seems to be the best way to advertise this forum, I don't really want to do blanket PMs. And it's not like if peppu shits on the thread it's going to reflect badly on us. It seems like you guys don't want to have a thread in the forum out of pride rather than anything else, really.

I think I'll create a poll on the issue when the new design is enforced.

Re: Forum Meta Thread

Thing is, this is our new home, right? Why would you want someone to piss on it just because you feel like it could net us more users? Not to mention, he could just outright ban you indefinitely, and it wouldn't do us any good because the thread goes with you as well. You also seem to be far too prideful to do the thing we suggested, which is the PM/word of mouth method.
I'd rather have us retain our dignity and get members via the old-fashioned way, than going for maximum profit but also telling the whole world how desperate we are to get the forum up and running, because let's face it, we are advertising on Osu because we want more members, not because we think we can bring peppu down from his throne.

While I don't want this to be super exclusive and new members are more than welcome, I'd rather not have forum game kiddies running around here.

Well, thinking about it, the kiddies will be impressed by the flashy new design, but still, they can read! :p

Re: Forum Meta Thread

i don't know or care how it's advertised, the way I see it even with the # of people here already there's already more discussions going on than i even feel the need to participate in, and even with half the people it would be enough..

It's (about) quality not quantity

I think they just skim through it. Regulars prob subbed to it so they could just pop in and out, though doubt it due to the spam.

Re: Forum Meta Thread

I'm not doing it to piss him off, and I'm not necessarily doing it to get more users either. I'm doing it because I feel that is the right way to make people aware of this alternative forum. Make no mistake, you're the prideful ones, I can send blanket PMs but I feel like that's the wrong way to go about things, and out of everything that would be most likely get me banned because on that scale it's using PMs to advertise alien software, rather than just telling a few friends.
The actions of someone being offered something only reflect badly that person. We won't lose any 'dignity', and it seems stuck up not to tell people about this forum.

Well, having a few forum kiddies shitposting in their own threads won't hurt really, and I don't see why anyone like that would stay here when they have access to a new flashy forum with their pewdiepie friends shitposts galore!

Re: Forum Meta Thread

If this isn't about peppu we should stop talking about peppu.

"Promotion" should probably be limited to people talking about it with people they know. If you make an effort to post this on the official forums and split the playerbase you'll be viewed as a threat, because you're being confrontational.

I'd maybe passively mention it in OT, never making a thread specifically for it. Maybe add it to your signatures or whatever. Just make sure you delete this particular thread and make one official post on your stance when you're decided. Otherwise people will get confused.

And I know some people probably want this place to be just a private forum for some of the people from OT, but I was thinking more of it as a refuge for people to boycott the main forum, in a vain attempt perhaps to get peppu to change some stuff. So is my question is: do any of you mind if I post in the 'new design discussion forum' alerting peppu and whoever else about this one, and if so what would the conditions be for us to come back to the old forum?

I would also appreciate if the "marketing" of this forum was kept to minimum. Making a thread of it is okay, but try to keep at least somewhat low profile.

I just don't want to get my stats messed up

Just kidding. The forum is still so new and heavy tweaks are going on. I don't really like to expose something "not-yet-ready" to a big audience.

How many users to you estimate that server can handle? And is it possible to upgrade if need be?

Re: Forum Meta Thread

Well considering it's a forum, probably an inordinate amount and I wouldn't worry. Unless we start getting ddos'd or something,

The only real issue is multiple people hitting it at the same time.

Re: Forum Meta Thread

Id rather not have advertising beyond links on signatures and word of mouth simply because principles. You wouldnt like it either if someone would come to your forum and blatantly take "your" users away, would you?
