What's up Ivid? What can we do to liven up this place?

:-D Hell, no!

My personal problem is just that I have not much to post right now, being busy with my exams and so on.

Plus, I prefer not to post questions on my games here, for the vast majority of regular posters here are my players...

Now, IMO, there's quite a lot that one could do.

1. Start some more PbP games, that always creates community.

2. Post every crap you find on the web here, to keep the boards busy.

3. LINK to us. Most problem of this board is indeed that most people might not know that we exist.

Apart from that, even if there is few traffic here, I think we are doing well.
The only real oldschool board that is doing well is DF right now,
and the other places that focus on BM, WL, or OD&D discussion are pretty deserted as well. (Apart from Finarvyn's board, maybe.)

Keep the torch on fire!!! :)

Yours,

Rafael

Ahem... what if there are not many boards? I usually don't mind too much about older editions, but I like to visit a place like this every while to ask a question or something. Not much movement isn't that bad IMO.

There are quite some over the web, but few of them have big traffic, unless they specialize on collecting.

What this board certainly needs is a bit more marketing. :-?
Now, I think it's still safe to say that for Blackmoor and Wilderlands,
it's still the ONE board. :) ...Which says a lot about the other communities, I am afraid...

Another idea is to post a collaborative worldbuilding thread.
