Hey everyone, this is a topic to post your ideas and opinions for why you think the forum is less active than it used to be and what you personally think can be done/ would like to see in the future. I read that some would like to see a more active staff, so I will try my best to filll that role from here on out. Are there any other ideas to fix the problem of a less active forum? If so post them here.

I said this in the other thread but I guess I'll say it again here...

Kaalus! Add a button to the forum in the main menu of the game!

Btw, I noticed someone posted a world linking the forum in the recently added community content list. Good idea, lol.. Who was it?

Get more mods. Remove the ODTs from FR because they are old and irrelvant. Remove all the extra skins threads. E-mail Kaalus to get his god****** *** over here and actually use the feature requests. And like MrShots said, get people to get herr via the game. And if possible, get us out of this **** they call lefora. That's all.

I agree with her here...I dunno about moving the forum from lefora though...it seems kinda like a last resort...and yeah the odt threads are irrelevant...no one uses them anymore except for maybe a handful of us. And kaalus should be more active on the forum...and I think we should encourage him to be more active here as well as on wordpress...

Definitely agree that Kaalus should be more active here, I'll see about making an acount on Worddress and asking him participate here more. As well as him advertising the forum more, we've gotton him to mention us on his wordpress before, but we'll see if he can get him to help grab more attention.

In regards to the ODTs, wouldn't you think it's better to merge the relevant topics into them? Because that's how it was supposed to be like originially, there would be a really popular/ common topic brought up so we would make ODTs to have every comment in one place. One of the issues we had with not having them was that the forums would get cluttered with several of the same topics being on a single page, this made it hard to keep track of what was posted where and who said what where and really just took up unneccessary space. 

Personally I think it would be best if I went through and merged the relevant topics with the ODTs so that the previous problems of not having them don't occur. But if everyone really wants to see them gone, the most I can do is unsticky them so they would fall into the other forgotten forum posts.

As with FR I'll do what I can to clean the Skin threads.

Believe me, I feel the same about Lefora. Probably a huge factor in the decline of active forum members, but I am not sure if this is going to happen. But I'll actually look into other options, I will also have to try and get a hold of Kaalus to get his official 'okay' on this.

P.S. I hate being that guy, but please refrain from profanity--think of the children and all that.

Suggestion: Every published world should have a linked sign at the beginning which brings them here. Maybe next to your credits sign. This is easiest to access in adventure mode worlds but can still be useful in others - they would just have to copy/paste the link, but it would be available... Perhaps it would say, "Come join us on / the forum and / talk about this / great game!" It's the next best thing to an in-game button, imho.
Or, a sign-reading button that has the same effect but could even tell them how to copy/paste the link.
I'd do this if I could publish... I'll update my cookbook world and add such a sign, shortly.

This is why I made the cookbook/adventure elements world available - in hopes of recruiting new people who want to make better adventure maps. Better than the signboard/path mechanic so commonly used. Better than anything they can do in MC. (But since I can't publish, we're the only ones who know about it.)

Definitely, definitely, clear away the old threads.  This place is like a record store that, every time you go in, has the same dusty records as last time.

What about a new background for the forum?

I'd like to see a "top You-tube video" of the week...that is actually updated every week.  Also, top world on CC, that kind of thing.  If I didn't have a job that sucked every waking minute from me I'd offer to do it.

...if we did a "top username" it would definitley be chartreuse narwhal..every..single..time...love that name!!

I see what S Man did with the FR, that's a great step ahead. Do we need a list of stuff to do?

1.Change that gawdawful background.
2. Get Kaalus's ass here
3. Get other people's ass here via the game
4. Tidy the skins pages.
5. More mods?
6. Get out of Lefora?
7. Hopefully profit

Love the post ty S man!! And with comments?! support?! :-/ Ideas?! Hhmmm..

Anyways I really like the link to Lefora ideas i saw, and Lefora isn't a bad site once you play around on it a little. Organized, profile page, signatures, amazing info&posts few easy clicks away. At first though, it did seem a little difficult or not so user friendly. Moving i believe, would be a bad idea.. :(

.
--link idea from others added to= Players / Anyone posts link, boast, support,etc. SC on social media sites! Liking the ldea I did on FB and G+ (there is share buttons top of pages too dusty to see).

--New content!! / 1.28 or talk of a plan for it from Kaalus /etc.= http://survivalcraft.lefora.com/topic/19406404/   Electromagnetism???
(Inspired by seeing others not wanting to just give up and this post motivated me to finally create my E-magnet post link above)
.
--Players feel ALONE add something that might change that...  (villagers/at least!)   [idk, I play creative. Just constantly hear that on more then Lefora.] 
P.s.. half this page signatures???

So serious!?!  I half Joke...

The only good thing about the background is that it is unobtrusive...what about using a different block texture every month?  It's be a good way to keep things fresh.

@scneo In this case, we can elect new block textures and host a poll like this one> http://strawpoll.me/4673374 Since the process is a bit jammy we can have one every two or three months.

Clear out the bad posts. This includes all threads that are locked, and all feature request posts that violate the ODTs. People need to see that their posts will be listened to, not shelved in 100+ pages of threads. Put some kind of special marker on features that have been added, so people can see just how important they are. Kaalus posting more would be nice. Updates cause a momentary jump in activity, we could exploit this by encouraging those who comment. More weekly polls and people who vote would be encouraging. So would a new background. More competitions would be helpful, even though my device cannot use links. Some clarification of terms such as " Old Timer" would be encouraging. Perhaps if there were a survivalcraft fun facts page that would help. The ODTs should be more strictly enforced. I cannot stress this enough. They have probably cut the amount of clutter in half.
