Could archive this place and just do a fresh install. Like start from zero. Rethink the boards and whatnot without any old cruft blocking anything. Could try another forum software like Vanilla for poops and gigs too.




We can't really expect too much of an activity boost though. We'd have to evolve beyond just a forum, but even that isn't surefire at all.

Pretty much this.

Forum software and/or theme that's much more mobile friendly?

Also from what I've seen, active forums are communities built around something else. Like a news/reviews, YouTuber, or something like that.

I'll be checking the site more often in case it breaks something.
I've noticed that as well. Those emails have been disabled sitewide, though.

That's another possibility. SMF is pretty dated, even with this newest update. Archiving it would be pretty easy.

It doesn't make sense to take drastic measures if it does nothing for our activity. We should wait until we've made more effort bringing back old users (and attracting NSiders who never joined NSFCD).

Anyway, is IRC still a thing? Maybe that's where people are hiding.

Quote from: Silverhawk79 on September 30, 2018, 02:05:02 PMWell, I fixed the smilies, though they're all back to SMF's defaults for now. What parts of the UI are broken?
If you're interested, I found the old NSider smilies: https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://forums.nintendo.com:80/i/smilies/*

There are others, but you'll need to filter results (i.e. "thread"): https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://forums.nintendo.com:80/nintendo/i/*

I don't think of any of that is terribly drastic or difficult. It's not like we have much to lose.








Also, we migrated to Discord from IRC.

It's drastic compared to the other things we should be tending to before considering it (and it's likely that it'd be pointless, possibly counterproductive, and a wasted effort regardless).

Also, I imagine our channels are just as dead, so I'll ask again: is IRC still a thing?

Internet Relay Chat does indeed exist.

The question isn't whether it exists, but whether people still use it.

I dunno, join an IRC server and ask if people use it.

And if I were to ask about servers and channels, you'd serve an equally smartass reply. You're not helping.

Maybe if someone becomes a good YouTuber, they could just advertise there.
I know Nayrman does/did fairly well.

You're going to get smartass replies if you simply ignore the answer I already provided. I said that we migrated to Discord from IRC (and linked to the relevant thread). If that isn't good enough for you then so be it. I wasn't truly trying to be a dick but now you're kinda rubbing me the wrong way.
