I invited some TRFers to join here, but they're too chicken to join up!

LedRush posted over here for a couple of weeks, then disappeared. 

 

Too bad. He was a solid contributor.

I would give them a hug, if only they'd post.

(This hug may involve some heavy petting and/or frottage.)


labente deinde paulatim disciplina velut desidentes primo mores sequatur animo, deinde ut magis magisque lapsi sint, tum ire coeperint praecipites, donec ad haec tempora quibus nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus perventum est.

 

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

Agreed. There's a general sense of disenchantment among certain folks at TRF with how the SOCN forum is modded (it's something Led, Tony, and I have long harped on), so I put the word out that this place might be an alternate to just hanging it up, but there was some pretty immediate pushback.

TRF sounds like an awful place.

 

But this place has deteriorated.  Almost no women any more.  Territorial Games has become downright angry and nasty, full of racism, and requires more modding IMO.  I don't know why anyone new would want to post there, apart from unpleasant characters.

I blame the TG problem on FJ to be honest. He's let Hemi take the place over with all of his bullshit. He should have been banned from TG years ago, and he's only gotten worse. A couple of the new members have been mostly trolls as well, with no warnings or anything given.

To call them pussies is an insult to pussies everywhere.

 

But yeah, MT is right...the last 2 crashes here have lessened the activity here. A lot of people I used to see from time to time I don't even think have re-registered here again. :(

See what happens when you don't include free RUSH swag with each registration? I heard that half didn't come back because they heard that most of the emoticon choices were nixed.

Maybe we should up the incentive and reduce the amount of time required to sit at the timeshare seminar before registration is approved.

Yeah, it's all my fault.  Seriously, I have a hard time keeping the spirit of this board (biker bar of rushdom) vs having it be popular and monetize it.  You want me to do that?  I'll throw ads up, start getting all moop on people and then we'll see what happens.  Instead of paying for this site, it could be making me money.

Yeah, I head that.  I can get some swampland in FL that we could make people go and look at as a condition of membership.

Yeah. You could just be less generous too and stop paying for the place on your own dime.

Then what happens?

I'd have no problem paying a membership fee on the board. It's why I haven't bitched more about the trolls like Hemi, mcmxii and geddysmoog. But they are killing the board.

Hear hear!

 

I'm not taking a pot at Joe.  I thank him for providing us with a free service and respect him for trying to maintain a libertarian Rush-like spirit of free speech.

 

But even a biker bar has to have some standards of behaviour, rather than unrestricted xenophobic spamming.

A membership fee would kill this board. Fuck ads too-- there's TRF. And that place is dog shit and full of creeps.

Look guys. There are trolls in real life too. Do you allow them to ruin your life experience ?  Or do you compartmentalize them?

 

Ignore does wonders. I haven't seen posts from certain trolls in months. And i don't care what they have to say.

 

As to why we don't have as much activity here as in the past? I agree that the most recent crash had an impact... lots of people didn't re-register. And like FJ has said, FB has taken over a lot of what this board offered - conversation. I guess.

 

Myself, I'm happy for the board as it is. I come here more these days than I do FB and even Slashdot.

 

But I'll ask this of our CP family here: Put yourselves in the shoes of the admins and the board owner. What you you do to 'bring the place back' - or make it more fun for new members?

 

I don't want you to answer right away... think about it though and come back to the thread with some ideas in a couple of days, with serious ideas. What do other sites have that we don't, that you think would improve membership?
