I noticed for a while I just forgotten to post a it as a feedbackYou JUST noticed? FP has had activity issues for well over 3 years. The last thing FP needs is MORE staff, as it is, most are inactive anyways. What FP needs is a solid plan of action that gets FP in front of a wider audience. A new theme is also a waste since it's just cosmetics, something the current theme is handling well.
However, things aren't aligned at the top and it's showing.
And Social Media This year in general as well lol Facebook, Twitter, IGThis year has been even more dead
There are plenty of good people with this mindset. They're just not as vocal. But they make up the bread and butter of this wonderful community.
If we just went by monthly stats in regards to the quantity of posts that are being made, we're right about where we typically have been over the last couple years, other than random peaks. For example, one peak was July 2018, which is the month when I took over ownership of this community. Actually, this past January and February were both our most active months since July 2018. That's not saying a whole lot, but it shows that the beginning of 2019 has been more active than the ending of 2018. Again, that's in terms of overall post quantity, which isn't exactly a great statistic to go by either.I have just noticed that FP since like this year has become inactive I mean mostly on here but also on their Discord are there any plans for FP to grow Staff wise or a new theme?
I installed a great app called Buffer on my phone, so it's been much easier to update our Facebook and Twitter on a regular basis. It hasn't been happening everyday, but I've typically been posting to Facebook and Twitter every 2-3 days. I don't know if we've gotten any users or anything from that, but we've got plenty of traffic. Probably just bots, but it's something.And Social Media This year in general as well lol Facebook, Twitter, IG
That was very well said. Reminds me of that famous JFK quote: "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."This is all the more reason that we need to support each other and our sites. If you help FP by keeping it active you'll end up helping your own sites in the long run. Everyone wants to join in an active community and log on and see new posts every time that interest them. It keeps people returning. The more people that return means the more sites we can do affiliate postings with and that will help us all out. Survival means sticking together
What are some things that you believe we should be doing right now?If you're gonna run a webmaster forum at least put some time and effort on SEO so it looks like you're running something that can set an example for all the members and new webmasters that register. I wish more was done to boost activity
I do wish that this people weren't speaking negatively of FP elsewhere, but there's not much I can do about that. Have I banned anyone for criticizing me? No, I haven't. Nor has Jerlene.Also, one of the curious things is that I spend time in some chats where people frequently talk about about how far FP has fallen and how Cameron, Jerlene, etc. are completely incompetent and like banning people who criticise them, as-well as bullying staff who try to make the site better by banning trolls into resigning.
You will have to cross that hurdle to really get any sort of "activity", people talk about FP far more than they actually use it and not in pleasant ways.
That's why FP should start doing more with Social Media. I see they are working but not posting any feed.And Social Media This year in general as well lol Facebook, Twitter, IG
I wish that was true, There are allot of active members here like myself and I don't get good return back to my site.helping your own sites in the long run
You're actually a little bit better off statistics-wise if you look at the big picture. On July 8th, 2018, Forum Promotion had 1,494,422 posts (source: web.archive.org). Today (as of the writing of this post, at least), FP has 1,529,492 posts. For the nine month period that you have owned the forum, FP has received approximately 35,000 posts. That averages to right around 130 posts per day. For the six month period before that (i.e. the last six months that MasterA owned the forum), Forum Promotion received approximately 18,000 posts, or approximately 110 posts per day. That being said, you could say that FP has grown under your leadership.If we just went by monthly stats in regards to the quantity of posts that are being made, we're right about where we typically have been over the last couple years, other than random peaks.
HackForums was overtaken by RRL which used to use MyBB but went custom (ASP.NET) due to scaling issues. They're mainly writers, so you're mostly going to see 1k to even 10k word chapters and large numbers of readers rather than a billion posts.The largest MyBB forum, HackForums, for example is also getting a lot less posts and traffic than in the past.
I haven't heard of RRL. I'll have to go look. Yeah, MyBB requires a lot of customization to support a large website. There's just way too many queries going on when you have that many users/posts/threads.HackForums was overtaken by RRL which used to use MyBB but went custom (ASP.NET) due to scaling issues.The largest MyBB forum, HackForums, for example is also getting a lot less posts and traffic than in the past.
Mirai was a botnet which took down Paypal, Twitter, etc. with a big attack on the DNS infrastructure provider Dyn. I'm personally surprised the FBI didn't seize HF's domain, but I guess they were a neutral third party.
We have new staff members and a new theme is coming with the XF 2.1 upgrade. It was set to be released this month.I have just noticed that FP since like this year has become inactive I mean mostly on here but also on their Discord are there any plans for FP to grow Staff wise or a new theme?
