Title: State of the Site
Description: C'mon guys

I say we should try not to let this site die. After all, the last post in Konoha, which has the most genin(from what I remember) was on may 24th, 5 days ago. Be active. Even if you have finals, you still can make a post that takes 3-5 minutes to type, can't you?

Preaching to the choir, I encourage/yell at the people I know to post, but they don't so. Some post, most don't though.
JauntyHat - May 30, 2006 06:54 AM (GMT)
I didnt think it was in that much trouble. Its a forum rp, so its bound to be slow
Ds14 - June 3, 2006 04:33 AM (GMT)
Goddammit, guys...... goddammit.

So exactly what do you want people to do about it? Look at where everyone is. It would seem no one in in Konoha. Mist is pretty much dead, although there should be some posts there soonish. Sand is empty now, and the people from Sand are in a fight. Smoke has two people in it, who have posted. The Kage is on the way to Konoha, although the kage hasnt been on in the past two days, hence the lack of movement there and in the fight with the Sand nin. And Stone, well you dont need to know whats going on there right now.
We are trying to get the meeting done so we can explain what is going on in Stone, but we have to sort of walk through the mud until we do. After that we can try to get people back, since things should be more interesting then.

Thank you for being concerned. There are probably 6 people that care anymore and they're mostly staff. I don't quite know what to do about it, but we can all make suggestions. You and I have already done talked about it. Anyone else know any good ideas?
JauntyHat - June 4, 2006 03:07 AM (GMT)
Advertising Campaign is the only thing I can think of.
Ds14 - June 4, 2006 03:30 AM (GMT)
Does advertising work w/ Naruto rpgs? There are so many crappy ones that I don't even look for them. You can advertise as well as possible and still have a bad rpg, so most people don't look. But it's worth a try.
I suggested google bombing (search wikipedia for the meaning of that if you don't know) the site, but FAB said no.
Omega2042 - June 5, 2006 10:56 AM (GMT)
What would help with this whole thing to to know who around here is willing to try and revive this thing.

Fire Fist Ace - June 5, 2006 04:29 PM (GMT)
yea, but people get bored, get busy with jobs, or get annoyed with the rpg they are posting on's rules, the staff or the other posters. This is what happens when you get people on boards, 99% will leave and never return.
JauntyHat - June 5, 2006 08:30 PM (GMT)
Also we're entering the summer which is usually VERY slow for RPS, remember the NRP? that thing basically died out in the summer, but it didnt. It came back fairly strongly in the fall and then died instantly in the winter XD
Ds14 - June 5, 2006 10:17 PM (GMT)
Well, Atemi, FAB, and Yukio can help by posting in the tournament so we can get stuff going in Konoha.
It's weird how to get more activity in an rpg you have to show others that there already is activity, huh?
Lord_of_Tayopia - June 6, 2006 12:26 AM (GMT)
yeah and im sure something will happen i mean we still have new members flowing in
Ds14 - June 10, 2006 06:09 PM (GMT)
Haraki - June 10, 2006 06:17 PM (GMT)
Well I've been trying to post everwhere I can in the RP, but the other people I post with, either haven't been on, or won't post. So don't go pinnin me for this :P, but I'll continue to post where ever I can.
Ds14 - June 10, 2006 11:06 PM (GMT)
Yeah, I've noticed. I'm supposed to be in a tournament and nobody else is posting.
Haraki - June 10, 2006 11:12 PM (GMT)
Lol I'm suposted to be on a mission, and no one involved in the mission will reply..v.v;

Okay, so I came here to have some great Narto fun a while back. But, then when I tried making a clan, none of the staff would let me, or help me make it better. So, I kinda stopped. And only having one char is boring, so I kinda left. I ended up finding another naruto site that is really great.
I know a few ways to help get more people here, but there are a few things the admins would have to do. If they wish to know, they can pm me, and I can help them get it sorted out and stuff, and then there will be more members.
Omega2042 - June 13, 2006 02:33 AM (GMT)
Hate to tell you guys this, but I dont see just getting new members helping really. I mean all of my characters are currently waiting for things, so I cant post anything. I mean we would have to sort of reset things to get it all moving again. Pretty much everyone is involved in something with someone who isnt around, and cant get out of it.
Then there is the fact there arent any admins around here really. I can try to get FAB to do something around here, but I dont know if anything will happen.
Ds14 - June 13, 2006 04:25 AM (GMT)
I'd be willing to be a mod, I have no life during summer because all my friends live an hour away and I can't drive, so I can be on a lot. And I agree with Omega, that we can just restart the rp... but, I propose everyone keeps their stats and pretends everything that has happened has already happened.
JauntyHat - June 13, 2006 04:54 AM (GMT)
ahhh another reset.
but still we need to write an advertisement paragraph or something we can post on other forums
Omega2042 - June 13, 2006 04:59 AM (GMT)
Whoa, I didnt say we should reset, just that we would have to if we wanted to bring in a good number of new people.
Also without an admin to clear everything, how exactly would you carry out a reset?
Ds14 - June 13, 2006 05:15 AM (GMT)
Haraki - June 13, 2006 06:18 AM (GMT)
lol magic has helped in the past..but summer, though expected to be more popular..is when forums die...everyones at the beach..or havin a good life...not on the computer or school...some people dont even HAVE computers at home...so we cant really FULLY blame them
Lord_of_Tayopia - June 13, 2006 06:26 AM (GMT)
hmm well like i told you omega im happy to be a mod...
Omega2042 - June 13, 2006 08:19 AM (GMT)
You guys seem to be confusing Admin with Mod. If all we needed was a mod, then I could do it all, and in the past I have run a board pretty much by myself too. Although at that time I was an admin, so I could do whatever I wanted.
Here, there isnt an admin, so that really puts limits on what we can do. Oh and just to mention, an admin has to make people mods, so I cant do it.
JauntyHat - June 13, 2006 06:58 PM (GMT)
We could always put EVERYTHING on hold and make out own story for the summer drought. then when we actually get more people again we finish the stuff off and continue on with your story.
Omega2042 - June 13, 2006 08:43 PM (GMT)
Well, we would need to look at what we have around here:
*Note this is off the top of my head so chances are it will be off*
Genin: 1 in Leaf, 1 in Mist, 3 in Sand, 2 in Smoke
Chuunin: Dont know of any off hand
Jounin: One in Sand
Kage: None from what I can tell
Missing Nin: Three
So, we really dont have a huge amount of people to do things with. Plus everyone is so spread out it would be tricky to really work anything out. Oh and without FAB around the chakra amounts wouldnt change. Finally most of the characters are busy with something else and are stuck, well all of my characters are anyway.
JauntyHat - June 13, 2006 11:50 PM (GMT)
i've got two chuunin and one Jounin, one in leaf and two in smoke. i dont see why we cant put some "filler" up while we wait.
Ds14 - June 14, 2006 12:15 AM (GMT)
I totally agree. Like, some lame-ass bad guy that we can actually kill or something like that.
Uchiha Mikyas - June 17, 2006 02:07 AM (GMT)
(Sorry, if you consider this spam)
Alright, well I'm back... in case anyone forgot about me. Sorry I've been really inactive, I've had a few final exams to cram for... Anyway, you can count 1 more character back in in Konoha... or 2 if you count my alt Jounin... Would it be any trouble if someone filled me in on things going on right now, in a nutshell?
Omega2042 - June 17, 2006 06:44 AM (GMT)
In one word: Nothing.
Just go through this topic and you will know exactly what I am talking about. Anyway, we started to think of something to do, but it never really went anywhere. I would personally like to know who is still around here and who would post to see if its even worth doing.
Haraki - June 17, 2006 03:09 PM (GMT)
Well I'm still here...And a sugestion...when you post who's here...tell us exactly what you have..so we can see what we're workin with, as Omega sugested, only we're going to get real numbers here...Lets see,
ive gotten 1 Mist ANBU and a Sad genin...no much to work with, but I'm willin to conribute any way I can
Kanki-chan - June 17, 2006 06:36 PM (GMT)
I know, haven't had the chance to get on much the past two weeks, but the yukikage's just waiting for one of the others to post and she'll be in Konoha. Also, I'm rping as an npc music person in Kemuri for LoT and Mattilus' mission.
Haraki - June 28, 2006 06:02 AM (GMT)
wow, even the usuall posters who keep atleast this thread going, have left..I haven't seen any one on...basicly any time I'm on..so did we just possibly lose the other active memebers?
JauntyHat - June 28, 2006 08:58 AM (GMT)
wait till fall when schools in and people are inside bored to death
Haraki - June 28, 2006 09:14 PM (GMT)
well..yeah..but i mean..untill then this site is dead..unless we either A) Start a filler or B ) send out a mass call to all memebers...like have the admin send an email to all members telling them to check in..so we know whos were.
