    Thanks @Alexander. I had evaluated your board before, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. Best wishes for your auction.

    Request for Feedback: Envy Forums

    Just curious, what is the purpose of your forum? The theme looks fantastic and it runs well, but I don't see the mission or purpose of the forum. Is it general chat? Is it entertainment? Is it gaming? Is it tech?

    Too many Webmaster Forums

    If you want to gamble, buy a lottery ticket. Successful webmasters have a plan. They offer compelling and valuable content, build out a unique niche, and nurture their community through community management tactics.

    Too many Webmaster Forums

    The question is how many of these Webmaster forums actually last more than 3 years with growing members and content?

    Feedback FP $........fair or unfair?

    They don't need to raise the prices. There are probably only a handful of superusers with tremendous amounts of FP, and raising the prices to those levels only skewers the prices for all of the casual users and will push the prices out of reach. The entire system needs an overhaul. The...

    FP Staff Conference Call #1

    I know there's all this discussion about FP currency and paying for it (and I think it's great that certain people have stepped up to volunteer), but has anyone stopped to think and ask whether the currency motivates and incentivizes in the right manner?

    FP Staff Conference Call #1

    Normally I would 100% agree with this statsment. Normally, activation of internal members is much easier than onboarding of new users. But for any outside observer looking at FP who understands community strategy, there's a healthy amount of skepticism of your internal community: For all of...

    FP Staff Conference Call #1

    They haven't fundamentally changed anything at all with their community strategy. And if anything, I'm not sure they've fully thought through some of these suggestions on their existing strategy: - They're going to block recurring users from participating in site battles. Those are, like...
