It's more of "these sections are inactive and having a bunch of empty sections doesn't help us when we're trying to boost activity". Furthermore to someone browsing and possibly considering joining spot sections without anything going on. It may give them the impression we're inactive and not worth joining.

Regarding focusing primarily on AAA titles, I'm torn on that idea. Even though it's not new and something we've been doing for a while.

I completely understand the reasoning behind putting attention and effort into big budget games. It makes sense, that's where the attention of the gaming scene will be and it's a good idea we're part of it if we want to attract new people.

On the other hand, WN has had a lot of success with niche games. In fact, I'd say more success with smaller games (hell even Mods of games) than many of the big budget games. Largely due to the fact there aren't as many clans / communities for the smaller games.

I doubt it. Why would they shift over? If they would want to shift, why haven't they done so already? Apparantely they are happy in the places they are now. I see your point about the empty sections and I agree they don't really help us but let's be realistic here. If I am interested in joining WN for game X, why the hell would I care what is going on (or not) in forum Z? As if I'm going to scroll through the forum to see what is going on everywhere. I just want to make sure the game I am joining for is active - and it probably is, otherwise I wouldn't have considered joining. The only potential interesting forums to see clanwide activity (the Community Discussion forum) is not even open for Guests to see.

I understand we want to start fresh when we have our new forums but I'm afraid kicking out a bunch of sections will cost us even more members.

Oh, I think we'll absolutely lose some members from closing down some of the dead/dying sections. But I believe the intention is to also clean up and organize as a whole. WN holds sections and their leaders to certain standards. Granted the criteria they're held to changes frequently but generally speaking, decent to bare minimum activity is required. Some sections have long past being stale & are around for purely nostalgia reasons. I'm not knocking nostalgia as a invalid reason to hold onto a section either. I think history and looking back at awesome times is totally worth giving a section a breather. Not to treat it like some section that no one ever cared about.

But after a certain point, do the few that hang around really care that much anymore? I mean, they care in the sense that they like having a spot to remember the good times when they can. But they don't care enough (or have the time) to go recruit, start events, jump in-game, chat, etc.

I suspect the hope is that the love for the greater WN community trumps the love for the section nostalgia. That some of the members will want to stick around and hopefully join up with another section. Giving that new section a small boost in veteran members.


Also I'm guessing if this new site actually comes (I'm not convinced it will) it might be best to go forward fresh. Do the dirty work here so if the new site is up and [insert inactive section] is gone people won't be confused or hurt they didn't make it to the new site.

im with this, AAA titles seem a hypetrain that dies out within weeks, some underrated titles are doing far better then these hype trains are lately..

Yes, THAT DrMath
They way you encourage or force inter-game stuff is by eliminating the division into game-based sections completely, and simply having event coordinators and leaders for that game for whoever plays. There is an argument to be made that grouping by sections doesnt do anything really these days, and it gives you the freedom to leave up forums without having some "qualification" for sections. In another thread several people said they have a primary/secondary but rarely play it (the Dev: Other debate) so you begin to ask what purpose it serves and ask if there are other reasons people want to be a part of a community aside from playing specific games. This is the community approach, but it sounds like people want to stick with the active top-tier sort of clan/guild approach, going with AAA titles and whatnot, which means you either kick those people out who are community members but don't currently find an active interest in any of the games WN officially supports (which result in a smaller but more-engaged group of people) or you let the community people stick around and be noncommittal. In other news, I hope to see a removal of military ranks and with a revised code of conduct a change in Justice that is inclusive of all parties and leaders.
