Look, at the end of the day, its your site so i dont want to be like, the stop in the way of you doing with it what you want, or like, making it what you want because i know that would suck.
I just remember the way I found my way back here was by thinking "huh, i wonder if ponychan is still going" and i think i probably wouldnt have started posting again if it was something new, because, honestly, fuck image boards haha. So i have an emotional attachment. It was a site that meant a lot to literally thousands of people in a thousand different ways, an i think its cool its still going, and i dont see it getting much more positive traffic with that change, so i feel like it would just be ending a piece of history for not much gain.
I could be 100% wrong, idk, but thats how i see it. >>16151
I was here the first week it started, then in 2015 i faded away because it was getting all drama and in crowdy and splintering off to a bunch of new places and most of the people i talked to grew out of it/moved on. Then i came back in 2017 right when pville splintered off, though i didnt even know that was going on at the time, but i stayed because the group was small enough that i got to know people and made some friends all over the site, and ive been a site-wide mod for going on 4 years who has delt with pretty much every single social issue on this site in that time. Mikie even offered me co admin-ship at one point, because i basically took point on every issue.
Like i said, if its true that people dont use RP because of the name of the site, then yeah, RP will get more users, but i still stand by the notion that the people who want more traffic on the site in general could do a lot more by posting around on the site, than just posting in 1 thread or 1 board. Unless they are just talking about wanting more traffic just on RP.
Im not implying that RP isnt a part of the community, im just saying, a change the effects the whole site is bigger than just one board, and the effects will effect more people than just people who only use one board. You are all saying "the site in general needs more traffic" and im saying, suppling some of that traffic would be a good start. >>16156
I was a full time phone poster for years haha, even as a mod.
Even when i was using a nokia feature phone, it worked pretty good haha.
