JIM GENIA! The improvement of this site is no longer...

Postby blackmetalcarson » Thu Mar 20, 2014 5:17 pm

...in the hands of the posters here.

While I understand that there are some things that us as Linkers can do to make this forum a more pleasant experience, I also understand that a lot of it is out of our hands. The entire time since the takeover, I've not seen one shred of responsibility taken from the people that took over. They posted a couple threads, asked for our help, and then what did they do? Not a goddamn thing.

Has anyone seen the Upcoming Events page? It's a fucking joke. I think that alone could be a reference point to just how out of date and just how fucking mediocre this site as a whole has become. Whatever you want to blame for this site becoming stale (AGF, trolls, etc) it's time to finally point the finger at the people who have done fuck all. They fucked the site up with the layout, which is optional, but at the same time was not necessary at all.

The last good thing that happened here was the joining of Ker who happens to be a quality poster. We need more quality posters! It's not all us driving them away! It's the owners! It's time they get off their asses, and do something about it for once. Start listening to the people! The emergence of ONE quality poster in the last couple months is not enough!

This is what they do, apparently. They buy fledgling sports sites, copy-and-paste their logo and layout over it, and then leave to repeat the process with another website.

Would it be crazy for them to give Dread or Rico access to upload things to the server or to make some of the changes

First off... Bill, thank you for this thread. I've been bringing this up every time someone tries to say "(insert poster here) is the reason this site is going to shit."

The site going to shit is the reason the site is going to shit. :lol:

I have nothing against Jim, he seems like a nice guy. No idea what everyone's actual job titles are, but it seems like he is more of a middle man, usually passes our requests off to other people to deal with it. Its just frustrating when people bitch us out for shit we have no control over whatsoever.

They typically respond... They don't however fix most of what I ask them about (fightwiki, upcoming events, the general shitty layout and functionality of the site, etc). There's been a few issues where they're very quick to help, and others that have been broken since last summer with zero progress.

Your guess is as good as mine as to why.

I don't know what those guys at Rebellion are doing. If you click on the RMSports link on our homepage that takes you to rmsports.com, All the links on that front page are from like mid-october. Why aren't they updating their sports stuff.



Meanwhile, they recently came out with this so that's good....

I think the reason nothing is being done is because there is incentive.. this site simply doesn't bring in enough traffic which means this site doesn't make the Rebellion guys very much money. Rebellion owns like 5 or 6 MMA sites... and I'm pretty sure they're all doing better than this one lol. So.... we can either start recruiting and getting some more traffic going (that means making quality posts too..) or just let it die. Without us giving the Rebellion guys a bigger a paycheck, there's not a reason for them to do anything about this site.

The irony of the situation is that without them doing anything about the site, we can't do much to make them more money.

How did you find this site? Presumably like most of us did: looking for mma videos. Our video section is mostly in shambles and we have next to no control over that.
The front page lookin terribly generic and unattractive: we have next to no control over that.
Members constantly getting logged off: we have next to no control over that.

Say we somehow completely eradicated all bad posts and trolling from the site. The best that could do is keep the current members happy but I doubt it would bring in a significant of new members.
If you can't find our website while looking for fight videos or news on upcoming fights and it doesn't even show up til page four of google when you look up "MMA Forum", how do we expect to attract new members aka more revenue for Rebellion?

Ask them! Lol..


But hey.. what do you guys say about recruiting? More members = more traffic = more money = more incentive to fix site.
