Default Do you think it's time for a change?

As many of you know OT, hell all of PWF, seems to have hit a slump. Posters are leaving by the truckload and the posters we still have left don't post much? Many of you have brought up good points as to why this is and what can be done about it:

The right people in the right places: Many of you have expressed concerns about a few of the mods here. Some say that the right people are not in the right places. Mods who regularly break the rules are in power and abusing their power on a daily basis. That by removing a few of them, things would defintately get better around here since it is the abusive mods who chase everyone away.

Too many forums: As many of you have noticed, PWF has a fucking assload of forums in which to discuss many things. But do we have to many? PWF has nearly 20 different forums if you count the subforums. Does having this many forums thin things out too much? Do you think things should be reorganized? How so?

Enforcment of policy: Many of the posters here have expessed resentment that mods now have the ability to ban posters from their forums. Though I have found it useful when dealing with dipshits, posters have said on many occasions that some mods use this ability too freely and ban whoever they don't like.

PWF is nothing without the posters and therefore this thread is for all of you... How do you think we can fix things for the better? What forums need to go and what forums should stay?
Keep things civil people, there will be no fighting. And try to stay intelligent about things here. I don't want to see "Make me a mod!" anywhere in this thread. I'll delete the post if I do.

Most of the people who leave PWF say it's because of all the spamming and flamming so I say we do something about that.

Also I think we should advertise more. Either send some posters to spam at other forums to promote PWF or let another forum (like WZ or PW) advertise their site here and so that in return they'll allow us to advertise at their sites using banners, pop-ups or pm's or sumthin lol.

Dump some of the forums. Remove some of the mods who got their spots solely by being here a long time or kissing proper butts.

Slow down on the individual forum banning. Use it only when extremely necessary (like rampant spamming or flaming) but leave alone the "Screw you, you're an asshole" type posts. I mean, this is a message board not a school. Part of the fun is screwing with other posters.

Eliminate the double standards. We all know certain posters have been given far more leniency than others in the past.

Just my one cent...

Just merge all the forums together, ALL of them, into OT. Discontinue the boot option. I've been booted from so many forums it's not even funny. Most of my boots, like the one in WCW/ECW and Entertainment, were not justified. Be more lenient when it comes to spam......a couple creative spam threads is no reson to ban or complain about somone who has the potential to be a completely contributional poster.



Besides that, there's nothing more I can really say. A lot of the reasons people either leave or significantly cut back is because a lot of the long-time PWF'ers, like myself, have seen it all, done it all, and replied to every single type and topic of thread imaginable.


All we can all do is hope and pray some quality NEW POSTERS (not alters or old-posters attempting to make a comeback)

NEW POSTERS come along......

to save this site. Until then, we can all sit on our soapbox, watch as the few posters we have left post about 5 new threads total in one regular day, as we sit back and watch PWF plunge into an unprofitable obscuirity.

Well the wrestling industry is dying from Vince McMahan thinking that soap opera is the way to go. This means less people watch wrestling, thus not many people are hunting down wrestling boards.

That being said this is a smaller board, so even less people are going to head to here. So what can be done? Make the main board better. Start having more people cover smaller feds, and have columns and stuff. Make a real indy section, I am sure Ice will be more than glad to do this. With a nice indy area with seperate areas for Puro and US indy wrestling, we can get all the people who hit a few sites for the daily news to start coming here as a one stop place. Once this is done, start advertising. This way, at the very least you can attract indy fans here. WWE fans arn't worth trying to attract with news as most of them know to hit the bigger site for constant updates, but these big sites lack in indy and Puro stuff.

Next make new columnists. Make a statement on the main page and in the WWE forum that those who can provide good columns in the forum will earn spots on the main page. This will lure people on sites like PW who wish to become a columnist over, and encourage them to post high quality stuff in hopes to get on the main page. This will help the main page, and the WWE forum both at the same time.

Finally you really want people to come here, you need indy and japanese tape reviews. The net is severely lacking on these and I am sure with proper advertising and good reviewers, this site could become the best place for tape reviews.

To improve the forums, you have to improve the main page, as people won't sign up for the forums if the main page is such that they have no reason to return there.

Remove Sweet Tooth from OT mod, remove Forgotten Sin as Gaming Mod, remove Kurt Angle as Entertainment mod, remove Bloodice from Sports mod.

That's all for mod changes.

As for forum changes, i like the way it is now. I don't feel like any should be removed/merged.

I like the fact that mods can ban posters from their respective forums, because like Ryan said it is useful, but there ARE mods who abuse the option. If we got rid of the mods i mentioned above, i think it would help cut down on those abusers.

If someone flames in the OT, or any other forum outside the WZ, give them a warning instantly. Don't just ban them without thinking. 2nd time flaming, results in a 24 hour ban.

Thanks for the forum to speak our minds Ryan.

I do think some mods don't deserve to be mods. Some never seem to be around doing their job, while other mods pick up the workload of the lazy, non-exhistant co-mod they have.

There is more than likely too many forums, but I feel if you combined alot of the forums you would see numbers drop off. Say if you merged Entertainment with OT, I could easily see all of the Entertainment posters stop posting about Entertainment stuff since their threads would be pushed off the first page of OT by some of the garbage that some people make threads about. You understand what I'm saying?

Yes, some mods abuse their banning power. I feel if a mod bans someone, 1 of 2 things should happen.

1. First there must be a valid request by a poster to have somone banned. Then before the poster in question is banned, the request must be seconded by another poster with a valid reason. Then I feel the mod should ban the poster in question.

or

2. If a mod bans somone, then he/she must give a valid reason as to why the poster was banned. If they cannot give a valid reason, then the poster should be allowed back into the forum, and adminstrative action should be taken against the irresponsible mod.

thats about all I have to say at this time.

And on a note, I think the majority(if not all, which it may be) of the mods are doing the best that they can, and I understand all of us make mistakes, you know. That is one reason I would not want to be a mod because damn if you do and damn if you don't you just do the best you can and sometimes make mistakes, its part of being human. There are people who do feel like me and leave for that reason...they just don;t see a purpose as far as poting on a board anymore unless something catches their attention or what. Every board has its ups and downs just give it all time. in addiiton I actually agree with the first paragraph that The Cheat has stated...its part of the reason for not having a purpose on these boards anymore.
