PostSubject: One more thing: THESE FORUMS NEED SOME WORK   Sun Aug 16, 2009 1:47 pm

Yes, the forums are great for starters. However, they need to be worked on quite a bit. Having a forum titled "Other" is just banal and dull.

We need to really improve on these if we want to encourage people to join.
There's so many things I could think of that it makes my head spin. I'm not saying that the forums are terrible. In fact, they're much better than I expected. I bet that ZU didn't even look this good in its infancy! But it is far from perfect.

So...my thoughts are to try and recruit some people who are part of site staff of other sites. It may be a longshot due to the responsibilities it entails, but it is not impossible. The ZU site staff don't do much unless they encounter a major bug or are working on a project. Right now, they're pretty free.
What we ESPECIALLY need is anyone skilled at coding vBulletin. They'd be a TREMENDOUS help.

Okay, that's the last I have to say about the site. Other than the things I've said, it's a WONDERFUL new forum. I've not seen one this new that looked this good before.

I believe a General Chit- Chat board would be much better than an "Other"
Oh, and part of making the forum better to have people join is just to make it look active and fun. A dull boring, lifeless forum woudn't help. So the people who are already here have to contribute as much as possible to maek it look more active.

Hmm... the forums look a lot better. There's more subheadings, no yucky "other," and it feels more like a proper forum. Good work so far!

Hmmm...for starters, this topic is a bit old. Feel free to make a new one.

Next, I like the game idea, but we're ragged from all of our clan work. We would need the assistance of some people. Maybe the time has come for site staff...

clan work? .__.

btw, here's an example of what I can do with flash (I can make chat boxes [NPCs], updrafts, like... many other stuff that I was too lazy to add on). I could try making a game (some rl friends would help me mostly with scripts and graphics), but I'd need people to help me with sounds and musics D:

We sent out a newsletter with the clan test. It might have went to your junk email.
