Do you really consider that the forum activity of one member is worth the money/effort that is involved with giving away a t-shirt or whatever it is that they sell. The crew will not benefit from it.

Are you a fucking idiot? Thats what they are for. Go read the sticky in the ivory tower.

Unless the guys ever decided to move back to the interbutts, this forum will die off slowly over the next couple years and so will the people talking about PP... unless they ever release PP worldwide which they can't so... enjoy whats left. Considering TV is a dying medium (more and more ADs online because its cheaper to do and lets you reach your audiences more effectively) I would have just stuck with the internet.

Release Episode 19
Unban the content making users
Send out mass emails to ALL the members of the forum, getting them to check it back out again.
More cast involvement. (Unless they to busy pimping bitches up in Hollywood)


This place was PURE viral, i only discovered it through;

being used on a SWG Euro-Chimera Bounty Hunter montage video on

There is no viral to keep this place getting the newer members in, and when we do, we flame the crap out of them.

New members don't know to not take crap's flaming seriously.
Anyway yea..
If the single free roflrupee is too much, at least send out a mass welcome back email.. but have that be AFTER the forum has been cleaned up/merged sections and useless things are gone.
Even though it's a forum of dead content..this can be a forum about general gaming and well anything because of GD. I never felt this forum was tied to PP really unless I looked into PP dischushun.
I remember seeing stuff like "make a pwnage breakfast" or something. People would post pictures of some sweet ass breakfast they made.. that was un PP related. It was random stuff like that that kept this place more active.

Love how the resident tough guy is happy to talk trash on an internet forum but back pedals as soon as he is called out. Typical coward. No doubt he'll respond to this with excessive bravado in order to restore his rightful place as a fully fledged internet badass.

As far as pruning and re organizing the forum goes, it will take mods that actually give a shit. Right now it's mostly regular member's that give a shit.[it seems, at least.]


I've made a thread in the mod section, so we'll see how we can help.

Our power is quite limited, as is yours, though. Ultimately, the release of episode of 19 would be useful.

I got a Black Headshot t-shirt, dvd and soundtrack for 10 Rofl-Ruppes about 2 weeks ago.

Heyyo,

I could do something douche-like... such as making it so guests can only see PP section, Annoucements and GD... but I dunno if the PP Staff would agree with such actions.

Yeah PPGA was pretty pimp before with Mr. Clean and other guys in there like Brenner and IW4 and many others.. t'was fun jumping in vent and doing up some TF2 with them.

It would help existing members from leaving, not so much bring in new crowds. I sometimes check last seen dates of relatively new people.. and they drop out after a week or 2 of posting. Probably way too many places to post anything in.

edit: We can also send a mass email to all members after the reorganization welcoming them back. Kind of like some MMO's do when they notice you have quit for a few months <.<. And I dunno.. returning members get a free rofl rupee? I don't even know what the hell those things are for.
kinda off topic:
How I found out about PP and it's forums was actually in another forum for a korean MMO.. That game and forum are dead now.. But some 10~ people post a thread every few months just to say "hay guys remember the good ol days 7 years ago?" etc.

Heyyo, I'm an admin. I'm the dude who before did up Teh Archive section to get rid of some of the useless old stuff.. so I give a shit. If you give me a few examples of merging and provide very good reasons and it won't piss people off? then yeah I might merge a few sections.. I don't see any real good in merging gaming sections or PP sections, but if you say art provide me a good reason.

QUOTE (ThrashTitan @ Dec 17 2010, 02:17 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
You seem like a smart guy. I think you should PM Myren and see if you can get stripes, if you think no other mods will actually fix here.


If you get 7 rofl rupees, you can claim an item from the n00bstore. And thats a good idea about the emails, just maybe not the rupees, otherwise people will abuse the fuck out of it.

Ouch.. cause last time I was the admin who did this stuff and Myren's been pretty afk from the forums as of late... Zombicus and I are the two main active admins. icon_razz.gif

For rupees? there is a free shirt prize you can cash in already...

Allright I will do some looking around and bring up some good reasons later as far as art/music go (other sections later, like the ice cream shack maybe?)

But right now at least, I think no one would mind if the RSS feed place was removed. All topics are locked and the latest news in there is from 2009. I understand the comic is somewhere in there.. that can be moved to some sort of direct PP related subforum [PP discushun maybe or maybe PP fanart/music/videos]. It would take off at least a little bit of clutter.

I know this doesn't seem like a direct "How do we get more people in here" sort of thing but it's a step in the right direction to clean up the house for new guests.. and it's existing members.

Agree with Ganon - the reason a large amount of people discovered PP is through videos such as 'the noob song' , 'boom head shot', doug being bawls crazy with his pc etc etc.
