Those of you who have been visiting this site for quite some time should already know that we have a forum – click here.
Sadly, over the past few months things have gone a little quiet over there. So, I’ve come up with a few possible solutions and I’ll seriously look into any feedback I receive on this.
Option #1 - Do away with the forum completely. Now that you can comment on reviews, interviews and other stories directly is it worth keeping the forum?
Option #2 – Keep the forum, but tidy it up a bit. If I was to do this, I’d be looking for one or two people to take an active ‘staff’ role on there. And, by active, I mean post more than once a week
Option #3 – Get one of those forums that can be intergrated into WordPress. I’ve been looking into these today and I’m relatively tempted. The only problems are that users can’t have signatures and it doesn’t show your post count. Post counts aren’t all that important, but hey – it’s fun.
Option #4 – Start afresh with the forum. If you like this option best, please recommend which software I should go for. ProBoards has treated me well over the past few years, but I’m open to change.
Please note that with Options #3 and #4, any posts made previously will not be transferred over.
I will be posting this (or, at least, links to this) on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace… as well as the forum itself… so I’ll be keeping an eye out for replies in all of those places. Additionally, you could always drop me an email or just post a comment here. I like comments. They make me feel special.
