View Full Version : why this forum is so empty
cuz its on a console we know little on, maybe you should change it to ps2 and swap it to ps3 next year, or alternately have a sub-forum for ps3
If you havent noticed new members sighn up everyday..alot just havent posted yet. There are a few dedicated members that reply whenever they can but many of us or busy. I dont think your in a position to complain about the lack of activity when you haven't been here for a week or so. I check back everyday.
One other thing, the idea is to get a head start and build up a userbase before PS3's launch. This way you have alot of dedicated members by time the PS3 arrives. E3 will help boost the support of the place to. If he changed it to a PS2 related site then the place would loose popularity because there are 50 million ps2 sites out there. People are looking ahead...PS2 is old news to alot of people now.
I was the 18th member to sighn up here in Jaunary..since then the place has ballooned to 133 members. Keep in mind every message board has more members that dont post then ones that do...also some might just be registering they're name to have it saved for another time. Say E3 or PS3's debue.
Patience is your friend. :wink:
Yup that's that got it in one. Also bear in mind that me and rebon are constantely working on the site trying to improve it etc. Oh that reminds me:
I don't think any one knows this apart from me and Rebon, probably because I forgot to mention it but recently I set up www.ps3forums.com/archive . If you know anything about google and SEO then you will know that google can't read dynamically generated pages (ones that are made on the spot), however now this new site is a Google friendly version of the forum that google can read. Basically what it comes down to is that peoples posts will appear in google now once they are spidered which takes a few days and whenever someone types in something that someone mentions in the forum in google it should appear in the search results. Bottom line. More traffic to the forum. :D
