I suggest we try ummm... "recruiting". Most of us must be part of another community where we could find people or have friends there we could invite to join OM forums -- Steam groups, Facebook groups and pages, etc. I don't really see discussions on Facebook anime pages as good as the ones we have here so that could be used to charm em and drag lure get them to join us.

 

When they do come and join, let's drop the "Hey, welcome to the forums. I shall now cease from interacting with you ever again". Posting in their intro thread is awesome, but adding them up, and hitting a nice little chat with them is chicken nugget golden.

 

I've also told some friends about getting newbies involved in the QT thread. Coz it really is pretty difficult to invite yourself over at some festivities when you just moved into the neighborhood.

 

Adding more events would help too. Though I don't have any ideas for that at the moment.

I didn't even know we had a FB page. ._.

 

It is sort of difficult to grow the community because we aren't connected to a manga reader anymore (crazy to think that OM lost its reader 4 years ago now), but we are sort of lucky as a lot of the larger reading sites out there don't really have forums. Still, it is December and that time of year where people are traveling, studying for finals, and getting ready to graduate. So a lot is going on.

Wow, that was four years ago already? OneManga used to be my main manga reading site. How sad. Can't believe I've been around for that along.

I agree with the one of page 1. The cause is Naruto. I even noticed a decline during the time when Kishi got slugish with the plot.

Solution: OM community should propose/find/promote an alternative to the big three and push it a little bit. "Attack on titan" should be now on top, except that it's not weekly. That "Beelzebub" appears to be number 7 on mangapanda while I've never heard about it... etc

I've never read Beezlebub myself, but I know for certain its in the top 10 on all the main manga hosting websites:
Anymanga
MangaFox
Batoto (I'm there)
Tenmanga

I personally fell off activity here because of the RP drying up, and now the reasons for why I joined in the first place are fulfilled with Pathfinder^^

 

Still, I do stick around for the mafia group. Not as big as it use to be, and things are steadily getting quieter, but I really like the community.

I'd get into other parts of the forum but I prefer smaller conversations, so Skype is pulled into play again. Plus everyone else is scary.

I frequented the old forum in it's heyday- mainly in the art section. But I noticed that the number of user's had really dropped in the move to this server. I prefered having such a massive (at least to me) userbase. Like being an explorer and trecking through the forums and gaining a reputation (good or bad, you decide. oh wait) I liked OMF (there be dragons). I'm not entirely sure how more users could be enticed back.

Well if you're looking for suggestions I have quite an obvious one. Bring back the reader! There. I said it! Hang me I dont care.

 

I feel like it's a taboo arround here to talk about it, and I know it's highly unlikely to happen, but the truth is that if you want real activity on the forum then this is the most effective method.

 

kind regards,

 

A veteran lurker

I have been a part of OMF since 2008. I plan on being a part of it until it's last day.

Recruit more Bleach fans and especially OP fans and you are good to go, me thinks.

Yeah, it is sort of sad but we had no control over the old forum dying. The people who owned the old site and forum just left a long time ago and then quit paying the server costs. So the site just died randomly one day without any notice. Nothing we could do about that.

Buy the domain and redirect it here before it's taken by some weird dude.

What happened to that idea being a site where you host/showcase member's manga for the public to read ? With Inkblazers closing , I find this a golden opportunity for this site to come back to it's former glory , in my opinion .

 

This was suggested in the old forum shortly after the site made an announcement that the site is going to delete all of the official manga content & no longer be an online reading site like Mangafox did .

 

Oh by the way , I decided to make a really brief comeback before retiring back to being a lurker .

:D that avatar tho lovely.But yeah how about hosting people manga here and have some sort of rating system of somesort. I dont think that bringing back scans is a possibility but  promoting this website to aspiring mangaka that want to upload their creation on a website i think that could actually be quite a good idea.

 

OK so i know that theres already a thread where people can share their manga but come on , reading there is such a pain  for the eyes (esthetically speaking).Also implementing some sort of rating system would be nice as well.

Been a member of this community almost 7 years, sure it's not as busy as it once was, but its still a nice place to come and chat about manga and stuff.

 

'Dying' is a bit of an overraction imo.

i feel old now, which i should find ironic given my background here 


 

All this nostalgia makes me miss silver kunai. Ah what a day that was.
