    Do you think some of the nonsense that you posted on the previous page is going to get more people to sign up and participate?

    I think fixing technical issues will bring some old members back, I know that some members left because of the issue they experienced. Adding new features which is currently occurring may also attract new members, but those features must be noticeable and attractive.

    As you know, we can do nothing but wait. New features certainly help though.

    Hopefully more than that. We used to have constant server crashes during E3 from the ridiculous amount of people posting. Moderating was fun back then... lol.

    It's unacceptable that they aren't fixed already. This should be a priority.

    A lot of activity isn't really the answer, you need activity + insightful posts. Activity could increase beyond earlier levels but if the posts doesn't promote interesting debates it won't really help to keep members long term.

    Pre PS3 launch the debating of hardware rumors were on such a high and smart level it really dragged you in and set an example of the discourse expected.

    The whole technical issues can't be handled by the mods and admins. I know a lot of people think they can but its out of their hands. They want all the issues handled as much as we do. It has been discusses at length multiple times.

    Exactly. We're waiting on Anto, whom I understand is busy elsewhere.

    Why not hire another programmer, only for psu? It could be a part time programmer or technical guy who could concentrate on psu and fix the issues. Anto isnt doing $#@! btw.

    That's the problem with forums that are run by a company rather than an individual that is a user of the site. I'm not putting judgment on this arrangement, who knows, if the forum wasn't bought by these guys maybe it wouldn't be around today. But it does make the chain of change that much longer and slower.

    I guess what I'm saying is when a forum goes from a hobby to a business it changes character.

    That is exactly what happened. The soul of the site has left.

    The budget won't allow for it. The current plan is to set up PSU as the definitive PS4 destination (in addition to making this place more interesting in other ways), which will drive traffic and therefore increase the budget.

    So in order to pay for technical fixes, we need to drive traffic. The good news is that traffic has seen a nice bump since these PS4 rumors, so once it's officially announced and we begin being bombarded with PS4 games, news, specs, features, etc, we'll most definitely acquire a larger budget.

    The last posts in this topic were from a week and a half before the PS4 was announced, the PS4 has now somewhat been unveiled and no real huge increase in traffic overall. Will it be when all the info comes out with more games and what the console looks like?

    Only 105, that's it? That's not impressive if its overall viewers and members but having 25,000+ at once would be to me. There are tons of guests but not that many members online at a time in comparison. I can definitely say this board has stagnated big time over the last 3.5 years.

    What needs to be done is to get this board back to phpbb (the one from 2005), been saying it for years now. I bet activity will explode once this is done.

    This and the name of this site is now Playstation Universe so people looking for PS4 information may not necessarily settle here like folks did during the PS3 speculation era. Outsiders will look at this site and think its a general Playstation forum and because its connected to other media content, most won't believe its a dedicated forum and just a message board hanging off a site. This I believe is a huge issue.

    It feels dead to me but then I've been here a long time and barely post anymore so I guess that's normal.

But with the PS4 lurking around the corner things may change again.
    This happened with a Ps2 forum I used to go as well, so yes Ps4 and fun speculations and such should make the place more lively.

    This place is certainly beginning to pick up traffic again. Like we've been saying for years, this trend will only continue as we get more information about the PlayStation 4. If this place feels dead to you now, you should certainly have seen it awhile ago.

    this is picking up... But when the 720 is revealed and the titles for it our revealed, this place should be really packed and that was the case of the PS4 revealing as well
