I'm still around, I just check the site every now and then. I'll always follow this community, there just hasn't much been going on lately!

i didnt know it would stay up i mean i am sure it costs a lot of money to keep up
We're covered until October anyway.

There's a lot of information in the Blog as well as the Forums and Techbase that warrant them all sticking around.

It's also my passion and I'll never give up on that :relaxed:

We had this issue with forums before, it's hard to keep fresh without participation from everyone, plus people default to post to facebook/reddit etc.

Still trying to think of ways to draw people in that offers something other places don't. Suggestions always welcome.

maybe offer bitcoins in exchange for seeing ads, and participation i mean how many forums do you know that offer a small incentive to be activate plus getting people to turn off ad blocking software is a bonus to the site. more people see ads, in turn gets more ads, which gives people a little more incentive and the cycle continues...that is probably stupid tho

maybe have a tech quote from famous people in the industry

perhaps do a google hangout with someone famous in a community(i am mainly talking linux because that would be the most feasible)

adding customization to our layouts like moving the blocks around or just allowing the user to make the color palette for site and upload it to a database where others users could download said palette an put it on their view of the site

i dont know if these are viable options but it would be worth a shot

Good idea but I don't want to disable or uninstall my AdBlock. :pensive:

Offering bitcoins for seeing ads? Paying people to see ads that pay so little it's not worth it? That's not a very good business model.

We've never had ads on the Forum. This is done out of passion and not with the view of making money.

Customisation is limited due to the coding of xenforo, plus it doesn't focus on discussion. We don't want another myspace.
