Default What do you want in a community?


What are you looking for in a community?



As of late activity has been slow on most days, with the occasional boost. We are curious as to what you think needs to be done to change this, and what you want to see in a ROM Hacking Community. More tutorials, friendlier staff, or more resources? Feedback is appreciated and I personally hope to see the forum be a better place for everyone.

For that we need a good member base. A way to advertise the forums so we catch people's eyes In a net . Also, we need to kill me off offer rewards for posting tutorials and hacks.

Someone mentioned this before but what about a HotY/M style competition? Or perhaps a Tutorial of the Year/Month as well, if that would work out.

Once again this links back to content too and content links to members. Finding good ways to advertise should be our number one priority.

RomHackTube needs a comeback! xD

We maybe need to make some tutorials to get beginners hooked.

1)Maybe that had less activity than the forums.

2) Yes. Just yes. But once again, We have tutorials for most things. But some of them have a bad layout. So possibly some easy to understand tutorials.

RHT linking was awesome when we had it because Youtube was taking down Rom Hacking videos at the time. I think it could still serve some use but it isn't necessary.

I personally can't say I care that much how this forum ends up being...
It's pretty much the same thing in every other forum as well but I guess I might as well try to start some discussion here

Anyway, what are you, moderators, expecting of this forum? Is it going to be a hacking forum where everybody is welcome, and having lots of general discussion isn't a bad thing? Or would you rather see this becoming a hacking forum with lots of documentation, and so being absorbing for members who want to be here because of rom hacking?

A clear fact is that playing pokemon is mostly kids' thing, and once they learn about rom hacks, some of them end up staying in a hacking forum as well if the forum feels like a "good place to be". Do we want them around or not?

Yeah...

What I'm trying to say here is, do we want to make this hacking community sorta like PC where everybody is welcome, and all kinds of discussion is acceptable, or we do want to keep things more hacking centered and for example, not allow threads such as "What's your favorite pokemon?" or poorly represented ideas. These kind of threads tend to attract more newbies who don't care about rom hacking at all.

As stated above, what do you want from this place? Personally, I understand if you want to keep it centered on ROM hacking, but for members like me who don't hack at all, there's nothing here. You can't really complain about not having more people if nothing is ever done. Example solution: Add some more sections. More general discussions and games are always good places to start. Lot's of people are attracted to them, and it's a good way to let them meet the community and at the same time feel welcome and have fun. As such, you could still keep the focus on ROM hacking, and still attract people such as myself, who could become interested in hacking. I'd be more than willing to help come up with some new threads, as I do want to be more active here, and that's the only foreseeable way I see of doing so~

Wall of text is wall of text.
