Title: Why is the forum so quiet?
Post by: zwakbs3 on July 12, 2021, 06:54:16 AM
Asking, cause there's soooo many new things that happened throughout 2020 and 2021, like Windows 11, new game consoles being released, more games again, etc... It's also really sad to know that this forum is dead, so I'm trying to revive it right here.

could possibly help bring more traffic to the site

Maybe it would be a really good idea of we did that so at least we could get as many people into the discord as possible, then get as many people to sign up to the site as possible, then we bring this site back to life...  ;)

I will not be making a Discord server for OSC but ya'll are free to make your own.

A Discord would largely take away from site traffic if anything. As most people would prefer it over a forum.

that's what I thought. it would simply make the sit even more dead and eventually the discord would take its place.

the closest someone could probably do is make their own OS-tan discord server. I could try, but I'm very bad at managing discord servers so I probably wont.

The days of forums are long over. Bringing back the wiki could be possible but I don't think the forum would ever regain its peak popularity. Like Goujer said Discord would only make the OSC forum even more dead than it is already.

We could make an os tan discord that isn't related to OSC though as i said in the other thread.

this site is still a lovely memory, and i like that it's still around for the legacy aspect, but a lot of us scattered to the wind for various reasons. i joined up something like, 15 years ago. i still care, but i have other things that require some of my attention now.

we're still here, though, so that's a thing. even if there's only a few of us. that's how it's always been, anyway.

Quote from: LucasW4R on July 31, 2022, 05:53:19 PMHow do you setup image banners?

click your username at the top of the page, and in the drop down menu, go to "Profile Settings". underneath the space for your avatar, there should be a bit for signatures. use [img], then the link to your image (don't host it here, iirc it's a headache to try and link from images you upload to forums like this. i use imgur, but plenty of image hosting sites exist that don't require money), then [/img]. you can preview your sig before you save it. images that are too large will be shrunk, so keep that in mind.

i don't think there's any sort of posting cap on it (like, you need ____ posts to do that), so that should work. (sorry the formatting is weird on this, i was trying to get the CSS code to show.)

I don't think some of the former members that used to be here will return. In reality, it's a fleeting fad.

I also don't think the individual they are referring to will return with a forum account.

Why this forum post hasn't previously been closed confuses me too. Zacian King of Windows while you asking further questions may sound innocent I am not a staff member, I get the impression that they don't want to deal with any trouble.
