I recently read a thread saying the rpg is dieing and I though this deserved a more indepth discusion site wide. this was origanally written in response to this replay to the threads. Unforently I have to agree. I am new here and even I have noticed the lack on interest on this site. It seems to me the only active mod is cogito ( if there is anyone other than him ) I have not seen or heard from the admin since my joining. I realy like this site and I would hate to see such a beautiful place such as this fall into the deep abess of cyberspace. I think the best thing this site could do is adversitse. The only reason I found this site is because I wanted to find exactly such a site. But, I think potentail writers would not have the same urge to find a site where they can post/learn the art of writing. I also belive the rules are a bit to strict in some places. I think a great idea would be to let new members post one peice into the review room on there first joining. A more user freindly tuturail for critiquing, perhaps a step by step video of does and donts. I am not one hundred precent sure on this but, I think the invitation system may be brocken as the contacts I sent the link to said they never recieved it. perhaps a reward for getting a certain amount of members to join. some new sections ( With advertisement and hype of their arival would also get members interested ). More contests would also get the site going ( I have not entered them yet so I cant realy say for sure ) but I have only seen a short story writing contest and a poetry contest. These are all very easy to do sugestion that I think would make the site more exceresable to new users and possible more appealing to new users . Does anyone else have other idea they think would increase the active member population or perhaps a reason that things shouldn't change ? Not trying to start a revoluation or anything just realy dont want this site to die.
