I have an idea to revive the forum.

We could go to the official Warrior Cats forums and advertise there as they're shutting down. We do kind of need to do it fast before it does shut down truly.

I think Darkstar was doing that for a bit. It seems most of the users have already been siphoned off by wcrp or whatever it's called, sadly for us

Based on the activity over the past few days, it looks like we've already managed to nab a few new members. :)

I do really like the idea, but how would that work? I looked through some of the thread announcing that the forum was closing, and it looks like they're still removing links to outside sites. Do they get rid of mentions of other sites as well?

Another issue I think is that we're not entirely focused on Warriors anymore. We've still got the Warriors boards, but there's even more general discussion going on. I feel like some members have been turned off by that in the past.

I did make an attempt to advertise, but it seems to have only worked a small amount!

I think a decent number of us here do want to discuss warriors more but when there's only maybe a couple people posting in each topic it becomes stale fast, if we had new members that were posting in the warriors section I think it could be revitalized. Same with the RP section which couldn't even take off due to our low numbers in most part. We need numbers to get those going, but we need those going to have a better chance at getting more members. A vicious cycle.

I worry most about the fact that so many people here are already close friends, it can be intimidating to new people I'm sure :(

Yeah, this is kind of what I'm getting at. People come here looking for a Warriors forum, but the level of activity in the boards leads them to leave after a while. I feel like we've lost a few members to this. Getting people isn't the problem, keeping them is.

This is probably also a factor.
