Trainers Lounge / Rebuilding the Forums (The "Official" Thread)
« on: March 01, 2014, 10:13:02 pm »

    I think it's about time we try to get the forums active again. The site has been nearly dead for far too long now(Thanks to those who stuck around and kept the forums from dying completely). This needs to change. Why? If the forums die, the game will likely go down with it. If you've been paying attention over the past few years, you should have seen how the activity of the forums affected the development of the game. For those who haven't been here long enough, I'll explain it a little. It's pretty simple, it shouldn't take much explaining.

     If the forums are active, then the development team has higher morale. There's much more feedback, there are more people that can assist with the development, and they have more awesome people to talk to in their free time. If the forums are inactive, however, this is reversed. The team has a lower morale, because there is less feedback, less development, and it seems like everyone has lost interest at times. This is one of the reasons why the development is taking longer than planned. You may not realize this, but making something that is intended for other people to enjoy when no one seems to be interested anymore is hard.

     The dev team is still working, which is commendable, but you can't blame them for not working with as much fervor as they previously did. Besides that, some members of the team have had to leave for personal reasons. People have had to leave from the beginning, but there were always people who joined that could replace them. Now, though, nobody is joining the forums anymore. So there is no one to replace the members that left the team.

     The solution to this problem is obvious then. Very few new members are joining, and this is because the forums aren't active. So, to get new members to join, and get old members to return, we need to get the forums active.

The Purpose of This Thread

     The purpose of this thread is to get people involved with the figurative "reconstruction" of the forums. Just a few people isn't going to be enough to achieve our goal, we're going to need a lot of people if this is going to work. This thread will also be the place where people can post ideas, discuss, and ask questions about things pertaining to the reconstruction of the forums.

How Can I Help?

     Since we are just starting, our methods of making the forums active will be simple at first. I'll list a few things that can be done right away:

  • Start new threads.
  • Contact old members and invite them back to the forums.
  • Post! If you can contribute to a thread in any way, do so.
  • Advertise! Let other people know about PU. (If advertising on other forums, please don't advertise obnoxiously, and make sure the rules allow you to advertise this website. Some forums do not allow advertising or have certain restrictions in place.)

     The more threads, members, and posts there are, the more active the forums will be, and new members will want to join. Start threads about anything you think could spark conversation. Don't worry too much about your thread dying and cluttering up the forums. At this point, I don't think anyone really cares if the thread ends up with only three posts and gets locked. This doesn't mean you should go around making a ton of really useless threads. If there is a game you like to play, make a thread about it! Try to give a detailed explanation of the game and what it is, link to the main page, and try to get some conversations going. Maybe later on, you'll be able to get a clan of PU members running.

     If you know some of our older members that have left, or have their e-mail address or know some other means of contacting them, invite them back to the forums. Let them know that we're trying to get the forums active again.

     This one is pretty obvious. If you don't post, then we're can't make any progress. If you feel like you can't contribute to a conversation, see if you can get someone to explain the topic to you, or ask questions. You don't always have to know everything there is to know about a certain topic to join the conversation.

     If you have more ideas, please post them! If there's anything you think would help, let everyone else know!

     I know there are a lot of people out there that have said that they want to help with the game, but can't because they're not good at pixel art, or can't program, or they're not good at mapping, etc. If you're one of these people that wants to help the PU team, this is a way you can help. By getting the forums active again, you will be helping the team out more than you realize.

That's all I've got for now, I apologize if it's not very well written. I'm not the best at putting my thoughts into words. If you spot any errors, or have suggestions for things that could be added, don't hesitate to let me know! And, of course, if you have suggestions for things we can do to get the forums active again, or have anything to say relative to the rebuilding of the forums, please post! I will continue working on this if I think of anything that could be added.

Note: This thread is a work in progress, and will likely be that way for a while. Feel free to post anyway, the main stuff has been included.

Remember Dark Soul's thread about the best videogame ever? Well, I'm making one about the best bands ever. Request bands to be in the poll, and I'll put them up there.
You'll have a week to tell me which bands to put on the poll. Then I'll draw two random names from a hat, and everyone can vote for the band that they think is better. I'm not sure on how long the voting will last for each two bands, so I still have to figure that out.

Here are the bands that haven't been matched against another in this round:

General Chat / The Team Rating Thread
« on: March 17, 2011, 01:30:23 pm »
 People are starting to make individual threads for rating their teams. The conversations in them dies after five pages, and then the devs have to lock all of them. I decided to make a thread for everyone to post their teams in, so that the devs don't have to lock every single rate my team thread. If everyone posts their teams here instead of making a new thread, the forum won't be full of locked rate my team threads. So post your team here instead of making a new topic, and someone can rate it.

 My uncle just recently got this game, and I think it's pretty good. Does anyone else play this game? On mine I'm an Imperial, with a custom class. I've been put in jail a lot, mostly for punching people in the face when they annoyed me. I've also stolen some things, but I only got caught for that twice. Does anyone know where to find the Gray Fox? I'm looking for him, but I can't find him... I go to where the note tells me to at midnight, but it doesn't give a specific location.

  The continent has been in a war for 100 years. The last king was corrupted, and Drogan, the current king, is no different. Humans have been fighting a race from another realm. They are called Shadow people, and they are extremely intelligent, strong, and agile. They look a lot like humans, and are masters of dark magic. This magic was not seen in the world until they came. They have dark blue skin and red eyes. They can make themselves invisible in the dark, and they can see perfectly in the dark. The Shadow people are determined to conquer the continent, and will slaughter anything that gets in their way. Then another army was created. They wanted to stop the war altogether. They are called The Warriors of Light. The Warriors of light was started by 10 mages from a different continent. They named the army after a legend that told of 4 warriors of light who saved the world. These mages taught the army how to build airships. The diagrams were later found by both armies, who drew up their own plans for their own, larger airships. Now the whole continent has been split into 3 sections. The middle of the continent is the largest section, which is all controlled by Drogan. A smaller section in the west was taken over by the Shadow People, and the smallest section is in the east, and is the only land the Warriors of Light have been able to take from Drogan.
 All of the rules will be explained in the OOCC. A list of classes your character can be is in the OOCC. You can be a Shadow person, or a human. Humans can only be in Drogan's army or the Warriors of Light.

 pm me your profile and wait for me to post it before you start posting.

 Holy crap, I can't wait for Skyward Sword!!! It looks awesome, although there doesn't seem to be many items... But I've wanted a Zelda game with the Wii Motion Plus since Twilight Princess ;D
 The next game will be way better since they'll know how good the Motion Plus will work in certain situations.
