Well we really don't have a base in the forum besides general chaos or insanity. I mean we say that we're built around RP and Stories, basically uncensored creative works. Yet the Rec Room is at the bottom, and Creative Endeavors has barely anyone posting but the artists and the occasional story writer.

On Cataclysm we had a game as a basis of sanity in the insanity of general discussion. Besides the forum format is really dated even then for general discussion, especially since Skype, IRC, Reddit, 4Chan, Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter are all general discussion in one way or another with a much better UI to go with it.

Hell I'm starting to lose interest in the forum mainly because we don't have the tools, focus, or general style of an independent forum. Not to mention there's not that many people or guests for that matter. You wanna know who all those guests are? Its people that hit the "back" button on their page to head back to the previous page, instead of hitting New/Recently updated topics.

Iwaku is weird and its quality is up and down across the board, but it has a strong base of RP'ers and dorks. How'd they get it? I don't fucking know, most likely advertising or word of mouth. But we don't have the cash, or sever power to do advertising. We're just hoping someone accidentally stumbles across us here, or that people over at the Cataclysm forum get fed up and leave to come here. As much as a disagree with the Cataclysm policy it apparently didn't affect much and their userbase is ignorant of what happened in the depths of general discussion or the Rec Room.


Our userbase is mainly focused on whether or not we get lucky enough to be "discovered" by the masses. Which we won't, we don't even appear on a fucking Google search we're that obscure. The only thing I guess we could do is branch out to other sites, write there and have the forum as a background thing; eventually someone will get curious enough and click the link. But most story writers on the internet are usually preteen or teen weeaboos writing about their favorite magic highschool, or write about how they held hands and ate at a diner with their senpai.

Maybe I'm being the pessimist here, but we're fucked.

And the people that we did actually ask to come here haven't even been online recently or at all since they signed up! Where are the five new guys that signed up? Probably on the site we found them because people generally hate change, hell coming here we took half of the Cataclysm population kicking and screaming. Even then they ended up going back or leaving this whole debacle entirely.

We lack any real purpose beyond "we fled from asshole moderators on another forum".

Only the general discussion section on the old forums was really affected by the shit that happened, the bulk of people on that forum will always be in the upper-boards, all stuff to do with the game which will always be active unless those mods suddenly become even more phallic.

Our numbers will always remain very small unless we have some way to appeal to others.

We're likely in for a long slow slide into oblivion.
I'd fucking drop kick an old lady, no questions asked.
I am always right when shark dicks are involved.
If it's not interrogation porn then it's poorly named and a missed opportunity.
Well, if you think about it, rape is for fun.
if utterly mad was any gayer, i'd shop here
I'd rather circumcise myself in a public place.
Eh, I don't really find anyone's sig too unreasonable. Though Caconym's is almost unreasonable

Exactly my point, we really have no purpose and the purpose we said we have isn't really going anywhere. Not many people are interested in RP'ing for obvious reasons, many people aren't writing stories or producing anything even though we lack censorship of any sort. General discussion is pretty popular, but Other Games hasn't really gone anywhere mainly due to my personal laziness.

Who is this mysterious stranger. Praise he who lurks beneath the waves of comments and postings. For we must die for his reign to begin.

Any whom believe that he is the false prophet of Utterly Mad shall be smited by my moddly hamma'!
