PostSubject: The future of this site, and where we go from here   Wed 27 Aug 2014, 5:29 pm

Hey guys, Dead here. This is pretty much a post talking about the future of this site and whether or not it wont go down due to inactivity. A year ago, i pretty much rescued the site from the incompetent reign of terror our previous "head admin" was bestowing upon us. Nothing was getting done, and basically that admin was telling the members that she doesnt care about the site so why should the members. That right there, is bad for a forum. Remade the site, made a Twitter account, changed the look of the site thanks to Serial, but in the long run....it was a moot point. Nobody showed up, and the people that did, only posted in the divas section, or the forum games section.

We should all realize that Blue's vision of this site died once he up and went MIA. This was no longer a divas-only site, it was going to transition into an overall forum where EVERYTHING could be discussed. Overall wrestling, movies, music, video games. It was time to appeal to everyone, if UD could do it and have a successful member base, why couldnt we. I understand we had nothing that set us apart from other forums, it's pretty much a difficult task to provide something other sites are doing aside from who we have signed up. Most wrestling sites have some kind of e-fed, some forums attached to a website are for downloading or streaming wrestling content. We obviously couldnt do either one of those here. E-feds require activity and the 20 or so people we had when it was constantly requested simply would not of worked.

This brings me to the posting, or lack there of. You can post all the news and discussion topics in the world, but if people are only acknowledging 2 sections: Women of Wrestling and Forum Games, what is the sense of keeping the site afloat? That honestly kills my drive to attempt ANYTHING when the memberbase is only recognizing 2 sections and openly saying that in posts. When i first discussed bringing old members back, i was told that they wanted to see how the revamp of the site went. Obviously it went nowhere because the members didnt have the same drive (other than a few that was actually interested in where the site went)that i did to make the site what it once was, without the drama from members that Blue had a hardon for and loved.

At the end of the day, this site is pretty much at it's end. Everyone on the staff is gone besides Mia and CP, and i dont blame them. It's why i havent been here either. I did my best to rebuild what Blue quit on, and what Vixen tried to kill off. I'll do what they wouldnt do, and that's take responsibility for the failure of the site. There is pretty much no real reason to attempt another reboot, we simply no longer have the members for it. Advertising was a wash, and the people that did sign up, never posted.

In closing, i would like to thank all the people that stuck it out with me over the last year. All the members that signed up and eventually left will not be forgotten. If you would like to see where i spend a majority of my internet time now, i'll gladly give you the links in PM.

-Dead

There's another wrestling site I'm apart of but those people are 100x worse in terms of trying to be right all the time

I will probably stay around here and do some posting but much like Dead said if people won't journey outside of divas their ain't much point in me posting elsewhere. It's really why my posting went down cause people don't want any news that ain't diva related

Everything must come to an end. I've been a part of this place for years now but not as much in a sense of keeping this place a live like most of you have. I'm interested in joining another Forum if anyone has any good ones?

It was a hell of a run guys and gals. Even though the site is dead (no pun intended) I made a lot of great internet friends on here. It's been pretty cool growing up alongside a bunch of dramatic, sarcastic, anti-social and overall unique individuals.

Honestly, I don't think this is goodbye. You guys will always have a special place in my internal list of 'internet friends.'

That's as mushy as I'm ever getting.

I became inactive because the forum had become inactive. There was nothing worth posting on in my eyes, because most of the decent thread posters left/stopped posting.

It will be a shame to see the forum come to its close, but having been decling for the past two years, if not longer its not much of a surprise.

I do hope the forum gets a sudden turnaround in activity, but I realise thats unlikely.

If this is the end, then I guess The Voice will be signing off for good. I'll keep checking back periodically, but otherwise I guess this is goodbye for the forum.

It was fun while it lasted.

Thanks everyone for trying to keep it afloat.

I know I dropped the ball in not staying as active as I once was.

Idk what happened. :-/

I doubt many people will read this but I wanted to say thanks to all of the regulars for all the memories (both good and not so good).
