I think a huge problem is that the community is too heavily divided now. People hardly ever leave their little cliques. I mean, look at the catroom SG (Awesome Smilies Mafia?). The members hardly ever left it since it's inception on OMF 2.0.

 

I think the main forum does need to be made more attractive. I've been pushing the contests with a lot of the people but most of them have expressed a reluctance to participate.

Yup was about to bring that up, this also goes for tthe game forum like the question thread or the mafia game.Both were realy fun at the start but started getting boring after a while since it was always the same people playing again and again.Look at the mafia game thread it kinda died for quite a bit now lol.


 

@Greg
Should do some more community events? Like an anime watching club or something for the upcoming season.

I like this idea, for example we could set up a day were we would watch naruto the last at the same time and discuss about it live on the omf chat. :D

I suppose I could try a few more contests >.> my lack of the skillz is my primary factor for not. XD well at least in the art contests.

I miss the mass scale games of old ;-; lately the most we can get is about 10 in a game. o.o we have even began adding in bots. Tis a shame.

 

>.> then again we usually play mafia games on places like TOS and that one other place o.o where I forget its name.

I could very well imagine some of the new members looking for more serious discussion being quickly deterred by the complete asshattery that is going on in some parts of this community (mainly the B3 forums). Flamebaiting and just general disrespect being what I mainly think of. It honestly feels like some members are just here to hate on a certain series without any real reason behind it, and that they are purposely swaying before the line of what's accepted or not. I've even seen some of the more noteworthy posters do this repeatedly, which can easily make one think that the staff are (god forbid) reluctant to do anything about it because of their popularity. Which I know isn't happening, but I think many new posters may feel that when some posters never treat anyone with respect and seemingly nothing is done about it :/

I do notice many (see: all) new posters are active for a day or two then they just disappear. The community has grown particularly disrespectful, and I won't sugarcoat that.

I had nno idea there was such an issue.I guess we can blame that on the fact that we all grew to be more and more open to other members which resulted in us being less polite,

I think our dissing (whether real deal or for da lulz) each other is okay; so long as there're no (ongoing) hard feelings--it's a sign that we're opening up to each other, which is good.

 

I'm neither advocating nor encouraging asshattery/douchebaggery here (I can be a douche now and then, and i'm cool if anyone's pointing that out to me); I just think self-expression should be free for everyone here--which comes with willingness to take responsibility for all stuffs typed, and readiness to face, at best rebukes/warnings and at worst banhammer, should such act of expressing ourselves offend most, if not all, the forumgoers.

It seems like all our members are legendary and have been here since early 2000. Every now and then we might get a straggler. But for as long as we have been active here, OneManga is very much alive. I'm here because of my sister whom passed in 09, I'll be here until the forum is unable to continue, until the very last breath.

We are far from dead, we are like a little family ya know?

Lol about 'dissing people'
On an old forum we had something called a 'Flame Thread'
A thread where you diss the other posters, not for the faint of heart obviously.
Maybe we should do something like that to bring new life into the community?

That's actually pretty neat--we can use it as a sort of place to let out some steam and bottled up emotions in no-holds-barred royal-rumble fashion, y'see.

 

half-joking, half-serious here Xd

half-joking, half-serious here Xd (EDIT: sorry, it's spoilered before)

 

What I mean is, it'd be an exclusive thread not readily accessible by all but could be useful for those who wanna settle differences (maybe it's like that Private Forum over there?)--but then I realized we already got PM for that (though, if we indeed wanna make this and differentiate it from PM, maybe such 'Flame Thread' need not be limited in participants and it got to have at least one moderator or two (may or may not be the official mods) to act as the arbitrator(s) so the heated personal debate inside it won't go for the worst/everlasting hard feelings? My two cents Xd)

I am completly against a flame thread , its kind of a double edged sword , allowing toxic post in one thread can lead to harsh argumentation that will lead to split people into small group.But having a more adult oriented thread where we could post things we are not allowed to post in the normal trhead woudnt be so bad.


 

And thats coming from someone that love to flame a lot :3
