    Not enough traffic aside from the regulars.

    Awww, c'mon! I just got here, and I have to say it's a great place for me to come and geek out for a bit. Nice change from the straight up game forums, or the more serious threads. Otherwise, all this stuff will become lost in the bigger forums and it will be a sad day.

    :sadwavey: <-- the sad wavy says 'please let us stay?'

    I didn't know it existed really.

    I only found it because I was looking for advice on sci-fi books to read.

    Unfortunately, I've had zero replies to my thread, and that appears to be a good indication of the traffic here.

    If no one is reading this board, why does it matter if it gets dissolved?

    I'm not arguing for dissolution, I'm just pointing out the likely impact on the OT community as a whole.

    I've posted a lot of threads in the main forum that didn't get any replies. Should OT be closed down? Not every thread gets replies, and it would matter a lot to the people who post here if it gets dissolved.

    That said, link to your thread?

    fuck that shit, the fact that it's buried down between "gizmoe gilore" and "the mac shack" is the problem, both those boards are dead as fuck, so you put a new board smack dab in the middle of some dead shit and it will take a while to catch on, i love this geeky shit, zombie crew ftw, star wars, star trek, battlestar, etc. ftw.

    this damn forum should be up by "the red carpet" "gamers pulse" "anime" "comic books" Look at the topics, what % of the threads are related to entertainment such as movies comics etc, it belongs in the entertainment section imo

    not down with the tech bullshit, that's the problem imo

    I would totally agree with this.

    That's probably why I didn't know this place existed until I needed it.

    Before it gets removed, try moving it and see what that does for the traffic. I have known about it, because I discovered it when I went looking for the car forums once... I don't post very much here, though, because I'm basically only a fantasy reader and most here is sci-fi.

    Was this forum supposed to get a name change or something?

    I propose we take numerous pics of nude women, photochop some metallic crap on them and then advertise in the main forum so that we can get more traffic. Or, better yet, we could each post a nude pic of ourselves and then see how well those pics fly?

    :eek3: Good idea!









    Not. Somehow, I think nude pics of Mace Windu would make people NOT come here. :noes:
