The forum is dying...
« on: August 31, 2011, 08:34:10 am »
As you all have notice, this forum members morale is falling...
Shouldn't we do something about it?

What about the new members/visitors that come to visit the forums? What they find on this forums except rage and hate?
The bashpit totaly screwed up everything good that has remained on this forums..


I just think that we should do something about it, like bringing more sense to our posts, not to troll or hate.. stuff like that...


I think that we should start some crusade campain on this forums and bring sense to this place ones more...

Just this week, the only useful topic was made by shoozza and nothing more.

Now you should ask yourselfs, why the f**k does this place sucks so much...
I'm just comming with a suggestion/advice to this forums...


Also this reminds me of something, of when I found out about this forum...
I was a stupid kid back then and I searched for soldat hacks on google, and I found this forums! lol (and yes I found some hacks in here)
I wasn't looking for trolls or f@ggots. Do you see the difference??!?!? :D

This forum will be active enough as long as we have interesting people (and trolls of course, because their absence firmly shows how boring that forum is) like Mangled or Espadon. Interesting people are like magnets. They post somewhere and you read what they wrote, because you know it'll be funny and in return add something to the thread yourself. If you wanna do something, check in every day/hour/minute and be interesting enough for others to post as well.

Btw: Why the hell are you warned if you are all grown up? Juss sayin'

And what the hell do you mean by "crusade campain"?

Because I called jrgp a retarded jobless lifeless 15yo gay or something like that, I don't really remember lol but I'm sure that I'm right...
And what the hell do you mean by "crusade campain"?
That we should make a group of brave knight forumers which will threaten and ban the filth that brings this forum down...


Now I know that there are interesting posters, trollin' or just writing something fun... But there are just not enough.
And even if they succeed in making a great topic, the other posters can be just lame...

But we are so few that none should be banned.

Yes all the morale is gone. Only reason why I still check these forums are Soldat updates and three word story.
Sorry if I'm insolent.

An idea!
What about if we make the Bashpit posts not to be seen in the Recent Posts which is on the front page?

These days I usually spend 30 minutes thinking of a mildly intelligent post and typing it out before deleting it and closing the window but I will try something different this time.

The future of Soldat and SF is outside these forums. A lot of us here are getting old and getting bored; no new version will ever bring us back. If you want to turn back the dial and return SF to its original spirit, you need newbies to make the threads we already made, and to make the mistakes we've already made.

I also think some of us have taken the forums too personally. We think of SF as our home, and the people here around us a sort of family. That's a problem, because the Official Soldat Forums are about Soldat, not about jrgp&Co. Personalizing the forum makes it hard to accept new members as well. If you like a certain set of people, make a new forum with them instead of ganging up for bans on "your" Soldatforums.

That's what I don't understand: if people get bored of the forums - why do they keep coming back and spam? Makes me wonder who's more pathetic - those who keep "personalizing", or those who do nothing but troll, bash and talk about religion non-stop. If you guys are bored with the forums - don't visit them. If you have nothing useful or interesting to post - don't post. Stop wasting your time and go do something productive (but I guess that's too much to ask).


P.S. IMHO an inactive forum is more appealing than inactive forum covered in troll shit.

pavliko just get banned already

anyway I'm a healthy 17 year old who will stay with the soldat forum for a long time.  Newbies won't come and say because we have already thought of pretty much every topic there is to talk about.

Unless you want to change the soldat forums into a social media site or something like 4chan then no one is going to come and stay.

We have reached our limit.

If my post count was decreased by 1 for every post in the Lounge, I would probably have the same score.

Pfft, yeah right as if.

In your profile it shows you have 12 pages of post, each page with 20 post.

In total you have approx. 240 posts. To be accurate, you have 232 posts.

If lounge posts were counted I would have 2621 posts, but to be fair most of it is bull crap from my past.

As a newbie of the forums I feel this a lot. I don't take it hard though... I like it. I want to be part of the SF family ;). And I was working hard at it but my projects were ignored.

I'd have 1163 1164 posts but thas besides the point.

Why don't we just hide the bash pit from non members? Like an internal board. The only way this forum will come back to life is if the game does. Its being updated, but it is 'dated'. Why not provide the address of SF at the profile screen telling people that this is the official place for Soldat news or something?

Maybe if they saw what the rest of the forum was like 1st, then when registered they see the bash pit they would realise it doesn't represent the forum as a whole. So, what have you come up with besides 'more interesting people'?

I don't see any reason to change anything. The only way to get more action into the forum is improving Soldat, and that is up to the devs. After all, this is a forum people join, because they play Soldat. No new players, no new forumers. It's not vice-versa so don't even bother.

Soldat is as stagnant as fuck. Sure people still play it and pay for it but it is nowhere near as popular as it used to be say.... 4 or 5 years ago.

Every time a new version comes out, a little bit of stuff gets fixed and a ton more gets fucked up... like when the back flip was added. That was pretty cool, but MM fucked with the guns so bad it was unplayable.
Take a look in the game suggestion/improvement rule thread- 99% of cool suggestions have been cast aside because boo hoo it's too hard to go back to change things. MM is skilled enough to give his fans what they want- new game modes, vehicles, environmental damage but he never does. Don't get me wrong, he's done some amazing shit that made the game interesting, such as making that doohickey that downloads maps into your library that you haven't played yet.
There's only so much anyone can play of the same game despite the various updates that do little except tweak the guns.
Soldat comes from a time where computers were shit but could handle a simple 2d game and that's what made it gold. Now that the average computer can handle shit like crysis, of course people are going to be drawn to the flashier games with nice graphics [especially when so many are free].

All of these are reasons why the forums are 'dying'. There are still a ton of people here from when I used to post back in the day but other than that there isn't alot of new blood.
Soldat needs to massively change and become relevant again or else this place is going to get worse. Seriously, you guys brought back the bash pit? You must really be desperate.
