    Attention :)

    April 1, 2006

    Rumor has it someone wants to play a practical joke on the fine folks of Animeb. Anyone caught doing so will be WHOMPed with 26 pillows (up from the usual 20 due to inflation.)

    That would mean that you've been banned for a longer time than you've been active right?

    Not sad at all. You have to chase Kaolla around the Hinata-sou enough times to become admin now The trick is to dodge the flying kicks. hinarei is a master at that Nobody else can do that, so he's the only one qualified to be admin

    I'll admit, being a regular does increase your chances of becoming a staffer, because your name tends to come up in the minds of existing staffers when deciding on promotions and positions. Bear in mind though, you don't need to be a staff member to contribute to the forum. We need members posting regularly, otherwise there's no need for a staff in the first place (or a forum, actually -_-).

    so it's not worth worrying about

    The problem with AnimeB is that it became far too general a board. It lost it's specialisation, and slowly people stopped caring. That's usually the way of general boards. Well actually, with many forums in general. The most active forums these days are specialised, and usually for things like a specific video game.

    Also drama helped to turn oldies off. There is no one person who can be blamed for that, but it's just something that eventually happens with an online community without strong leadership. Even then, sometimes theres just nothing you can do.

    Rebuilding would be difficult and require some serious activity and possibly hard choices.

    It's also a question of whether anyone can be bothered telling others about AnimeB. "Oh hey, come join this anime forum"
    Why? They can go to more specialised forums. Forums for a scanlation website for example.

    The general boards should be gutted. Multimedia, gaming, sport. These are all general chat and should simply be merged with the chat board. The only reason to ever keep these things all split up is for when there is a lot of activity.

    That's about all I can think of for now. Up to the general leadership. Until you can get people in though, there isn't really any reason for expanded forums, and as an 'anime forum', the main focus fullstop should be the top forums.

    Still. As I said, why talk about these things here when you can talk about them at a more specialised forum based around something which is constant, such as scanlation.

    ^

    Ty's post is full of truth.

    First we need a niche that only animeb serves and no other place serves. Love Hina? Not anymore. Negima? Not anymore. Anime? General anime boards are a dime a dozen.

    Anyway, back to my regular amount of silliness.
