I miss the old L4Y days. Back when it was running Unified. Loadsa people around. Fun banter. Now all we get is the odd chit chat about PF and a bucket load of Eve-Spam.

All the effort and hard work I put in to the Starcraft 2 section. It never even got off the ground. I scraped the internet for months looking for info and tried to get topics going. It just never worked. Sigh.

Anyone else miss the old days?

This is technically still Unified
Version... 5 or 6 or something like that.

I know the site has practically dropped off the face of the planet.
I looked at trying to stop the Eve spam, couldn't access the admin panel that controls the RSS feeds - its broken. I'll go poking directly in the DB now...

EVE spam massacred. It was brutal but I think I won.

I want to get the site back up and running a bit more, design revamp has been on the cards for a while and new PC was started with a new Unified so taht the game can link with forums under one login etc.

I should probably stop work on the actual game and put some effort in on the site part. That way I can get that bit up and running and enable the game later on

Now... we're on free servers provided by my work. We can't return to the old days of 20+ sections, hundreds of Gb of files and 1-2Tb/month bandwidth usage... at least not without moving back to our own servers. Thats something I'll look at in the future but naturally I'd rather stick with the free servers

Aside from forums for chat and PC itself (later in the year) what would you like to see here? What should the focus of the site be?

I know a lot of the old gang haven't been around in a while, we do still have regulars however and its you guys I want to hear from. Its our community!

Well TBH, this is probably the most active thread I have seen on the site!

No-one really posts general stuff any more.

TFIF - what you up to this weekend?
What are you listening to?
what car do you drive? etc...

The "general" stuff seems to have disintegrated, but at the same time I think its because that's not why people come here, its more for the specifics (or was).

It's tough to explain what I want from the site, but just more chat/conversation/interaction. But its not exactly narrowing it down much!

Maybe others can suggest? Unfortunately whatever ally we take, there are competing sites out there, and we need to build up to compete. I think PC will help though.

(Thanks for killing the EVE spam! )

I think alot of effort is required by the members to be more active, but atm the site could probably be streamlined...

(and now I notice I have been rambling so I will end here...)

What do you expect?
Find and bring back splitter, foe, mad ferrit, T-mine, Dvl IAC, killiad, RHF, DG, Genxer. Gonna be really difficult.
The community has gone and so far there is nothing to appeal a new one, I'm afraid
There are no levels 4 us.

Well what do you suggest/want from this site?

Garner,
Can you add the text back to the thread Admin panel?
All we have is tick boxes and radio buttons, so its guess work when locking/closing a thread.

I don't understand...

On one hand, you're complaining about lack of normal general talk in the forums these days.
Then on the other, you're locking threads because they're "off topic"?



It's called house keeping. The "discussions" going on in that thread can carry on, if a new thread is created with that discussion. It was a topic regarding "PF" and people were posting rubbish.

EG:
What does a PS Vita have to do with PF? It should have a new topic "Oh hai thar! I got a new PS Vita"

I have to say, I agree with Inf3rnus on this one.

There is no reason for you to lock threads, even if they go off topic. If I was an admin, I would only enforce the closing of a topic if the topic got out of hand with arguements that would escalate to the point where people want to kill each other.

As Inf3rnus says, you were complaining about the lack of general talk in the forums these days. How do you expect us as users to do that when you lock them after they have gone for so long? Its just wrong on many levels. It ruins the "Fun" factor of this site.

Look at a thread as a whole, not as that particular one... Someone posts "Hi, I have an issue with my Xbox... blah blah", then along the way the thread gets de-railed, it jumps from Xbox problems, to a game on the xbox, to a different game, to that different game on the PS3, then it goes on about the pros/cons of an xbox. Not very helpful for the OP.
If you want to talk about X and the thread (started by the OP) is talking about Y, how is that relevant and/or helpful. I don't want to piss on your bonfire, its just make a new thread, which has been done for you random discussion. >HERE<

Yes, I was...
I would rather have a formed discussion about something in a relevant thread than jump into a random topic and start discussing something and bringing it off track.

Example:
This thread & post. It could be construed as off-topic, however its discussing the site and what changes to make so the post is valid as it has some relevance.

What has got in to you? Seriously? I thought you were older than 12. Why do you have to go throwing insults to try and make your point. If anything it would just provoke me, which would result in me abusing my admin powers and you being on the receiving end. IT IS NOT WORTH IT.

Yes I want the forum to be more active, but no I dont want it to descend in to chaos and impossible to find/discuss information. This isn't 4chan.

Online Goodness
There are 1 users and 3 guests online


I remember when it was more along the lines of 20 users and 40 guests online.
I remember a particular thread on who had been online with the lowest amount, and we struggled to make it online with 1 other person. Now its a challenge to have over 10!

Dumb@ss moderator decisions and lack of support of new games drove most people away from these forums. The only sections that have been mildly active in the last 4 years is Red Faction and Max Payne... And how old are they?... Personally, I still browse this site only because I actually find it enjoyable to see how retarded majority of this remaining community is.

On the other hand, maybe everyone that used to come here just quite simply grew out of the site & communities CENSORED .

Food for thought...



I kind of had respect for you just a minute ago, but mentioning that the community is retarded has caused you to loose that respect completely. Not a biggy? Well, you just sit there in your computer chair thinking that you made a point, when really you have just made an CENSORED out of yourself. Congradulations, you have just made it to the complete CENSORED list.

Really? I thought it was the constant bickering of some users that caused it, along with the lack of uptake of new games. We had new game sections, and we pushed them but there is only so much we can do. I listed SC2 as the example. Check the forum in that section. I posted numerous times trying to generate interest. Spent hours uploading gameplay footage on my rubbish net connection.

What amazes me, is you insult the community, but yet you still keep coming back? Surely that means your a part of said community!


TBH, we don't have a community any more.
Spikey, please refrain from insulting other users. (Obviously this applies to Infernus as well)
also, dont bypass the language filter, its there for a reason.
