How do we revive dead gay forums

I really do like the forum format, so I'm wondering if there's any way we could revive it somehow.

It didn't work :(

Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on again?

If it still doesn't work you probably have a faulty controller

My controller works fine. Square just won't revive furry furrums so I'll press F instead

This place has always REALLY needed advertising. Someone or some way to tell others about the place. The Twitter account for example I think was supposed to help with this but it has been inactive. 

Also what Zara said. People are attracted by posts. If there are people posting legitimate things, people will post in return.

As I have always said from the beginning.

Just Post.

Exactly. :v
People don't wanna post in an inactive forum. People see an inactive place, go "
oh it's quiet/it's dead/nobody posts here" and leave, making the place even more dead.
It's a vicious, dumb cycle and seems to apply to a lot of things besides forums.

Like @Sidewalk Surfboard said, I like the forum format too, but it seems most folks have moved on to other platforms (Discord, Twitter, etc).

I think the Twitter account may have been run by Lemon? Not sure. If it was her, she's long since left the forum now, so that explains the inactivity there.

All the mods had access to the twitter, but it was definitely used more for status updates about the forum itself as opposed to serving any real social function. In all honesty, that was what Discord was for, but that started to die off after certain events transpired.

We need to start marketing the forums on Twitter the way all the (successful and not hated) PR companies do on that platform,
and just incessantly shitpost.

/Thread

Porn doesn't create discussion though. At best it just gets "wow this is hot"

Porn also isn't allowed outside the Red Lantern.

I don't think handing out bans and infracs is conductive to activity, but shit if I know

It's endlessly entertaining to me how many mythologies spin up around the direction this community took.

There was no watershed moment where everything fell apart. A community is a system, and like all systems is only an amalgamation of it's parts.

Call it "culture" if that makes it more comprehensible, but i think it's kind of silly to use such a loaded concept to talk about a group of like 50 people.

Draw whatever conclusions are convenient to you from that information.

Yeah but a group of like 50 people can be easily demolished with a couple major events

Yeah of course, because the underlying social fabric was flimsy to begin with.

It's an internet forum populated by people with a massive dissonance in values and motivations for being here, and to top it all off most of them are immature as hell.
