TBT I think if Stabbeh doesn't start posting more, or Achilles, Sally should be a mod again. When him and Ransom were mods everything was fucking gravy.

I would like to point out though, with absolutely no ill intent, that we are now doing exactly what Urra did. We should keep that in mind moving forward.
this is exactly my point i made about the doom 4 portal. the only way this works is if we have something new to offer, otherwise we're just parroting other sites. there needs to be a reason to visit that isn't reposting news. that's why we need to land, say, a good interview and post it on other sites to drive traffic here

also i don't think we should archive or delete our old posts. it's part of what made this forum what it is. if someone decides to go back and read all the bullshit that used to go on here that's fine if you ask me. i'm not an admin, but whether this forum lives or dies the last thing i'm going to ever support is censoring people (outside of obvious things like racism), past or present.

Well, it looks like we have a lot of work to do.

Seriously, who gives a shit if someone gets offended by old posts. If they stay, well, think of it as a filter.

Besides, I like reading old posts.

deleted my doom 4 post in general since this is a better topic

but for starters if we do decide to we gotta actually take it seriously and work on it. if it's just a half-baked idea then it won't work.

with that said we need a domain. i dunno if doomportal or whatever it used to be is available, but that'd be a good start

Well Saladin is good with computers and shit, maybe he could run the tech part of the site, we get a youtube channel and a twitter and all that shit going. I'm like 80% sure I could get an interview with Garret Wang and 50% sure I could get an interview with Jeri Ryan. I'm 100% sure I can get interviews with the devs for Star Trek: Online and once that happens, other game studios will see we're legit.

We kinda also have Gamercast. We could ask Paul if we could expand on that.

that'd be cool, but i'm not sure how it'd work unless he just throws up a link on the sidebar to a portal site.

Some Let's Plays too. It would be good if we got some good comedy. The shit I had to deal with then I played WoW with Vinny when he was drunk was comedy gold. He would pick fights with alliance, pull elites, make poor choices, lol.

I am totally for trying to bring life back into the pf!

As for ideas- uhhhhhh not really an idea man. I'd rather try whatever idea, no matter how lame or how much some people disagree with it- try it. We are already deader than dead, so what's to lose? You all are an online family and aren't going to just up and ragequit (for more than a few days :P ) so there is nothing truly at stake.

Try all these ideas! If they work, AWESOME. If not, well you guys have some funny ass stories of how you guys epically failed- which might bring in people anyways due to our crazy hi-jinx

I wouldn't at all say deader than dead.

I mean, yeah, we were, for at least a few months this year, but this isn't at all the first time this has happened. We have ebbs and flows.

Lately it seems like more of us care about PF, so we are doing our best to keep it going.
