PostSubject: BYD is not going to work today   Fri Apr 12, 2013 10:22 am

Canada happened. Major ice storm. The roads are ice. A godamn tree fell on my house

Tree you are drunk go home

So anyway, good time to work on the forums. So the staff and I have been talking and this is what we've thought of so far.

1. Change the logo. Metal and Entertainment is fine, but if we think of a new name to give to Dies, I don't care that much. We kind of want the Entertainment or lifestyle aspect first. We'll see. Looks like Dies is our man for graphics now. So I gave him reins to the admin panel. I tried playing with it last night. I pretty much accidentally the whole forum.

2. Change the order/nature of the forums
Introduce Yourself
Metal Music
Non-Metal Music
World News (A slight change could be good- like feature stories or whatever)
Off Topic
Serious Discussions (Keep it the same name?)
Movies/Television
Pictures/Videos (I am thinking of removing this and making it a stickied thread in the Off Topic Zone and calling it You Laugh You Lose. 90% of the content is humour and thus a continuous thread to visit for funny things is better than a single thread with a photo that nobody comments on)
Stories/Literature (Horror is changed to this)
Video Games

3. Background. 2 Options. Leave it or change it. If we change it it'll have to be dark and rich so that we can read the white text or we'll have to do a huge overhaul. An idea was a solid wooden look. The style has to be repeating or it will look silly and you'll be able to tell where the image ends. Also the bloody bars that you don't notice would have to be changed too. Like the ones underneath posts when you preview them or make a thread

4. LOR really wants reviews. We need to think of which area that could go in. If it has a huge following it can have its own area. Myself I only really want to review something if I really liked it. And that is very much in my interests and may not get a ton of reception for the amount of work I put into it. So we'll have to see who enjoys doing it and if so we can get some content continuously rolling

TLDR
Graphics
then
Adjustments
then
Choices
then
Staff?

Looks like your house managed to escape unscathed which is good.

I very much like the idea of a more gentleman/men's interest focus.

Like the sub sections could have names such as:

Talkies and popcorn (movies/tv)... something that screams the golden age of film etc.

Just little things that would make the place feel more cohesive.

I think changing hedonistic glory to something is a good idea... just not sure what to.

^Mojo, Manliness, Awesome-itude. i kinda like hedonistic glory, i think its pretty unique. also, though i am pressing for reviews, i am not the best writer, so i might not even do it that often. it was just something i think could be a good tool for attracting more people, and be interesting to read (i like reading them, not writing them). gtg class. ill try to think of more things

I'll definitely be down for reviewing. It we can get reviewers who consistently review lots of things, maybe we can set them up with their own forum which can have all their review of music/movies/games/condoms/etc

I think that could attract interest, it would almost be like the various blogs that have regular writers, and each could have a section that is devoted to them. Or just have a general reviews section, and each writer can give their segment a fancy name, It should definitely be less-specific than in the past though, because I definitely enjoy review more than just metal. I could do write ups on almost anything we talk about on the forum, and I know we have plenty of better writers who would enjoy writing about non-metal stuff too. I would really like to be able to attract some more metalheads though, but definitely the ones who are willing to take part in the "gentlemanly" atmosphere. I don't want Metal Throne

I'd be interested in reviews movies/games probably

Movies would be my strong point. I think I have over 500 rated on imdb lol

You guys would kill it with music for sure
