A lot of rabble has been going on about the slow death of this site, so let's see if we can bounce some ideas around to reverse the trend.

This website does not have enough traffic to warrant a dedicated board for up-coming fights and we should merge 'The War Zone' and 'MMA Discussion.'

Moderators should make sticky threads for each event so we can engage in discussions about the event and talk trash and develop long lasting internet relationships.

Also make the dark theme the default theme, I am sure 90% of potential members leave after their eyeballs are molested by the new and brighter look.

This will sound lame, but we should send a PM to all of the good members who dont really post here anymore. And ask them to contribute more. :P

I like your suggestions also i think they should make a game where every user gets fake money and we can use it to bet on fights.

All solid ideas. I was just about to make this thread based on your suggestion in the other thread about the war zone merge. I PMd the idea to dread (is he still around?) lol.

Here is what we have so far, you can add it to the original post if you want.

1. Merge War Zone with MMAD (I would suggest 1 thread for undercard and 1 for main card at least though)
2. Black Shines as default theme
3. No more account deletion bets (at least not sanctioned with rewards lol)
4. More interesting topics in AGF and Off Topic
5. PM/Email good members
6. Ban shitty members (Being shitty should be illegal)
7. The games (sig betting/Pick em) should have a bigger role
8. Fix the stupid log off glitch
9. An mma betting game with pretend money

I've always said have the games (sig betting/Pick em) should have a bigger role, no one ever listens lol. Put a little spot on the front page with the standings from the pick em league or something.

We should try and make the mma fantasy league more public. so more members can participate and new members can join and try and work their way up the ranks.

I've made a few posts on this, though they were in the suggestion section so they faded away and nothing became of them.

I've always been an advocate of merging the War Zone, Daily News, and MMA Disc. while creating pinned threads for each event.

The boxing and training sections should not be below the off topic sections. They should replace the MMA Disc & Daily news sections.

Sig-betting is something unique to this forum in that most of the key members participate. It exists on other forums, but certainly not to the extent of Linker. Establishing a major sig betting league (The USC, Ultimate Sigbetting Championships, for instance ;) ) and having it be advertised to people not on this website could be a way to draw people in.

But most of all what's lacking in this forum is interest. We can talk about moving things around all we want, but if people aren't interested in posting here or posting about MMA it's just not going to change. A lot more advertising for the forum needs to be done in order to bring people in. I do my best during events on Twitter and Facebook and what-not, but it's not as though my network of MMA fans is huge.

And maybe put some of the cliquey trolling on ice in the MMA Disc sections.

Also, let's start adding some of the fighter-smileys to the smiley list so they don't disappear!

Update the Events tab. It doesn't even have this Saturday's event on it. This alone makes the site appear dead already. The new members will come because maybe they search for an event and guess what website they won't get to: MMALinker because we don't even have that event on the Event page. Oh, and either get rid of or seriously update FightWiki or don't let us get to the page unless it is finished being developed. It looks like an unfinished HTML school assignment.

If I am on the home page and I search for something on the home page I want stories, forum threads and videos to show up. RIght now only stories show up. That's not bringing people to the forum.

Let's say I'm not already a MMALinker member and I google "UFC 166" to get the fight lineup. Somehow from that search I reach MMALinker's Event page just to find that the lineup isn't there. I then search in MMALinker's search bar for "UFC 166" and get taken to a story on a different MMA website, never knowing MMALinker has a forum.

Does MMALinker have a facebook/twitter presence? If so who is running it? It seems to me that ANY website on the planet needs a presence in both of those places. It really sucks that we lost a lot of the good writers this forum used to have. I felt like they could have written articles as good or better than anyone out there.

Make a VIP lounge for posters who maintain a certain weekly post rating. I also say the MOD team votes on weekly awards.
Best MMA Diss post, Funniest post, Stupidest Post, Stud of the Week, and Asshole of the Week. It could make things more fun. MODs and Admin should show up in chat a little more like our boy Tron. I think it brings us all together. Like the other night in chat on the Bones/Gus card when like 10 dudes jumped on cam and was awesome. :gold: The one time when like 6 linkers got topless, also great. Good times man. Everyone should come join in if tinychat is working for JDS/Cain3. Would the new management get us our own chat room again?
I'm so fucking high.
