As you are well aware the current state of the forum has become the "elephant in the room", pardon the metaphor. The only way to deal with the lack of activity is to tackle things head on and make productive improvements to help the current situation of the SDH. Sitting back on laurels and hoping that things take a turn for the better will not help in any way. This is why I've made this topic: What does your forum need to improve and change? (What SDH Needs V2) - credit to Static for the name.

 

In this topic I want you to specifically state what you enjoy on the forum, what you do not enjoy, and improvements and reforms that can be made to make this place on the whole, a more enjoyable place with active discussion and debate. Only then will people consider posting more and coming out of their hibernation of inactivity. Only then will SDH feel and become like the good times, back in the day. Pardon the second expression.

 

Again I'll reiterate what I want you to do:

  • State and explain the things you like about this forum (if any),
  • State and explain the things you do not like about this forum (if any),
  • State and explain the things you want improving and how to improve them.

Please engage in active and helpful discussion so we can turn this place around, thanks.

OFFICIAL SUGGESTIONS, IMPROVEMENTS AND REFORMS:

(This will be a list of things that we, as a forum, have discussed in this topic to improve the state of the SDH)

 

MAJOR:

  • Re-organising the content, display and demographic of the forum as a whole. The current design caters too much to WWE and WWE games. Whilst this is a good thing, and brings in activity in that regard, it doesn't give those coming for WWE news and games news a reason to stick around after the game has been released. To have substantial activity throughout the entire year (and not just the 6 months in the build-up and release of the annual game) we need more focus upon other games and specifically Off Topic considering it is the widely regarded as the most active section.
  • Encourage members to participate in active, good quality debate and discussions rather than dropping one line in a topic, leaving and never returning to see others' responses. This could be implemented via a post in the staff announcements, similar to "Want to learn English?" in Off Topic and also mentioned in the Board Rules complete with a new section which will earn prestige and promotions on the forum
  • Regarding current activity, we're not getting a lack of guests coming onto the forum, as we recently smashed the record for "Most Online" back in September, it's the lack of members signing up that's the problem. Possible restrictions in certain sections could solve this or prompt the guests to sign up in a more persuasive manner by perhaps including a message every time they view a new section. The one we have at the moment is good but we need more of it to get more people signing up. ---NEED MORE FEEDBACK ON HOW THIS CAN BE IMPLEMENTED
  • A complete change in the ranking system, removing the requirements in the Supporter's group and adding other stipulations so it is continued to be reserved for the best Members who aren't VIP's. Also change the Staff and VIP groups around, perhaps increasing the size of each. This suggestion in specific is down to Andy Badwool for the most part.

 

MINOR:

  • Reforming MOTM in it's entirety. If this award is to continue perhaps have it accesible to ALL of the members, considering we value equality and for example a Moderator such as myself is just as much as a member as a a Member. Pardon the terrible pun. Nevertheless, as previously mentioned, it should be the member with best post quality which wins Member of the Month rather than quantity.
  • More things that integrate forum members together rather than having recognised "CAWs" members and "SDH" original members. This could be achieved by Events and therefore setting "Events Managers" and competitions --- MORE SPECIFICITY AND FEEDBACK NEEDED ON HOW THIS CAN BE IMPLEMENTED
  • More interaction on Social Media, perhaps make someone the "Social Media Correspondent" or "Social Media Manager". We need more communication on these platforms to encourage and entice more members into joining.

Copied from the other thread where it didn't belong:

 

I would like this forum to be less afraid of confrontation and less narrow minded when it comes to discussion. Like, I mean, I get it. We shouldn't flame each other. But it seems like noone wants to participate in discussion. The only actual debates I had on here this year, that I can remember were a long ass PM exchange with Teryo and a comment exchange with fufu over female wrestlers. And that was it. And those were decent to good, I enjoyed it. But it seems like as soon as you say anything to anyone, they get really defensive, they start saying shit that makes no sense, they feel offended and so on. I feel like this forum is great in the way that it's very friendly but I think it's a little too soft. Like, just tough up a tiny little bit.

 

It would also be cool to see good posters get rewarded instead of just making everyone supporter for just being there. Like, why do I see people get member of the month and all that shit when they do nothing but post one-liners in a single section? See, I don't care much for digital awards and that type of stuff, but I also think it's not very engaging for people who do (and also take forums a little more serious) who want to become a known member etc. (much like what Alex described about his earlier days) to see that stuff happen. I just glanced through the opinon topic and what do I see? Several Member Of The Year votes for people who did nothing but recycle old topics all year long. And those topics don't even have any value for discussion. Like what?

 

Oh yeah, and I like how awesome the forum looks. Sexy as shiiit. Except those green supporter badges. Fuck those. :P Also friendly atmosphere is great but I said that above.

What I like: I like the friendly atmosphere on this place. I like the feeling of equality that this place provides too, much better than other places that I've been on. I also like that members are appreciated here too.


Dislikes: In all honesty I don't feel like we do enough as a forum together. I know I might not have a place to call out things like those because I've only been here for 6 months but aside from the PPV predictions we don't do anything as a group that's supposed to separate us from any other board on the entire WWE Games community. It's as if everybody's doing their own thing with no results or enjoyment. Also I think that the one liners don't help matters entirely either. Most people don't seem to be bothered to make an effort apart from at least a handful of members currently.


That's all I have.

  • Regarding current activity, we're not getting a lack of guests come onto the forum, as we recently smashed the record for "Most Online" back in September, it's the lack of members signing up I would assume. Therefore I propose to restrict certain sections or prompt the guests to sign up in a more persuasive manner by perhaps including a message everytime they view a new section. The one we have at the moment is good but we need more of it to get more people signing up. If you're a guest reading this now, please sign up!
  • In my opinion the board rules should contain a part that we encourage which leads to promotions. This may include welcoming new members, hosting events, general activity and "hot" topic making which leads to general good quality debate and discussion.
  • New awards regarding topic count, perhaps for 10k views, 50k views, 100k views on topics you created and the relevant awards.
  • Competitive Moderator positions regarding activity in certain forums could be introduced. Such as members who aren't Moderator's having powers as we do now, but more competitively. If your activity goes down the position is took away, but if you make more and more good topics in there perhaps a chance of promotion.

These are some of the ideas I have at the moment, I shall post some more later on.

*The people are actual people, their not random trolls. This is a huge plus

 

*Members who's around would be the kind of talent. Forums seek to gain again^

 

 

However at times, I honestly feel left out of certain things.

 

-'s

http://www.thesmackd...ther-creations/

*merging that into a single topic, instead of how it was in pervious years 

 

eg one for Movesets,Superstar Threads,Created Championships,Entrance,Logs modding.

 

Use one of these ideas below, it might help

 

http://www.thesmackd...30307-team-sdh/

http://www.thesmackd...k15-ppv-aka-ie/

 

There's worse ideas tbh.

 

Oh Jet, I know one other thing however I'll need to pm you about this.

 

In short something needs done, but dw the people here as well as me can try to sort this.

Firstly I'd like to thank Alex for making this, it's long overdue and hopefully the comments here will be taken into account.

 

The staff team needs to be looked at big time. There is no opportunity because we have moderators and V.I.P's who aren't even active anymore and that's not fair to the rest of us that have passion for this place but don't have a chance to reach the brass ring we deserve. Look at Saleh, he has done a better job than anybody in regards to attempting to bring in activity this year and that includes the owners and other staff and all he got for his time and efforts was a promotion to the Supporters group, he deserves so much more than that. There are too little updates in regards to new staff members so if we have nothing to reward us for our efforts then why should we bother when there are staff members who aren't active and do nothing for SDH? It just makes no sense, rewarding members for their time, effort and dedictaion will increase activity and make people want to be here.

 

We need to start promoting and getting SDH out there more. I hate to say it but Smacktalks and CAWS.WS are so much better at this than SDH, they are always using their social media accounts to their advantage to bring in new members. All SDH seems to do with their Twitter account is post a bunch of WWE games news and then there is a huge gap throughout the rest of the year which is a huge wasted opportunity. So yeah promoting this forum to other wrestling fans on as many social media platforms as possible would do us nothing but good.

 

Next thing, we rely far too much on the WWE games to create our discussion which is realistically only going to cover 6 of the 12 months of the year. There's nothing wrong with WWE being the main focus but what makes us different to the 2K forums or CAWS.WS? What makes us stand out? NOTHING! We need to make our other sections stand out to guests who may have an interest in these games and topics. If I came on SDH for the first time right now and wasn't a WWE fan, I'd leave because the main forum page is too WWE heavy. Wrestling should have the larger section but not to the point that it's taking up like 75% of the forum. when it's dull and boring as it is right now. We are more than that and maybe our entire look on the forum needs to be redesigned to attract more people with other interests.

 

For as long as I can remember, this forum has felt divided to me, CAWS.WS members and traditional SDH members. While there is nothing wrong with being passionate for your favourite forum, it really shouldn't be that way. We should be able to get along as one and on here we are all SDH members. There shouldn't be a huge divide where we slam every member for having a different opinion to our own, that's why our topics end up in arguments rather than dicussions. Nobody hears anybody out and understands their opinion. We all have a different story in life so we all have a different opinion and listening to each and every SDH member and then responding in a polite way is going to lead to less flaming and positive discussion. A friendly environment is another plus.

I'll start by what I don't like. I don't like how rules are by passed. All these topics with the foul language and inappropriate comments. Not to mention the flaming that goes on. And not just from the members. Staff has been lazy and show boating. We get your staff, but you have just as much meaning here as we do. And I don't like it when the staff get to be rude to the members. It's a honor to be staff and you should represent this place better.

Its the ignorant people and stupid arguments that is killing this activity. People post less because they don't want to be around it. I don't post much anymore. There is nothing worth replying too. Even SOTW isn't doing well. You don't even see the Owners anymore and they sure don't feel welcoming anymore. And I'll let you know I sent Amir a personal message, bet he is avoiding it. It could be anything but yet he ignores it. Tell me if it was about a issue, what would stop someone from just leaving if no one cares?

We have damn good members. Damn good. People who come here even when its a abandoned desert. And for a long time we have had horrible people as well. Not pointing fingers but some staff just don't show up at all or do a good job. Maybe its just me? Who knows. Maybe I am bitter or some 14 year old mad bro online. You don't know how I feel.

I will let you know I don't feel welcome and its not by the members. I have put in a lot of time and effort for this place. And to have it spit on me. Like I said before, Vee told me everything I needed to know. I don't care how you feel about me Andy. The truth is I been here for your site. And I know you don't like or trust me. Let me tell you, your YouTube would have been in good hands with me. I know it was mentioned. I would have loved to work with you.

I have designed and brain stormed for this place. For what? I sit here grey and depleted. So please tell me what this site has to make me feel welcome or important? I've reached out here. I connected people together. I created bonds here. I got people to work together who usually don't. It was I who stepped down and offered Nick as my replacement. I gave him opportunity. I respected Nick and told myself that he deserves some notes on his resume so to speak.

I may have all these awards and posts and etc, but its not that which makes me feel accomplished. Its what you all think of me. Some of you think I troll. I don't troll and I'm not here to. I love this place and I hate what it has become. I miss how it was. I promoted this site and made a YouTube show out of it to get something going. I tried to do something here. I appreciate the opportunities I got.

I'm here still. And where is everyone else now? Vee is gone. Can't tell you last time I seen others like Dom. You want to improve this site? Start showing up and showing you care for what you created! And listen to us. We want to see you all here. Making us feel welcome. Not treating us like crap. Rulers are only as good as thr people they rule over. So enjoy being kings in a empty village. I even went to other forums and they treat me much better.

At least at smacktalks he replies to my messages no matter what. He cares about his site. Where is thr care? No content this site is pushing. Videos once a year? What happened?

This place is great and I think adding members will be a bad thing. I don't want assholes to join and completely ruin the great atmosphere. The off topic section is a place I feel comfortable sharing personal things to a mature crowd, even more so than most of my friends.

It's exactly what I said in the other topic. Members need to be more social and care about discussions because that's what forums are all about. I don't think they restrain from doing that because they think they're not very good at it, I think it's because there is no initiative since an apparent lack of interest is what has been a recurring problem and it's just carrying on. When nine out of ten members don't care, the one remaining guy - who otherwise can add to the topic - doesn't bother either since he thinks it's unlikely he'd get a counter-argument or just an add-on from another member. I think that's the problem right now,

I guess a solution would be for a staff member to just open up a topic and encourage the entire community to put more thought into their posts and keep the one-liners to a minimal. And this message should actually be implemented into the awards to be handed out. For example, the MOTM should be handed out on the basis of quality rather than quantity. I think a more deserving candidate for that would be a guy who makes like 100-150 posts in a month, but all or most of those are intelligent, thought-out posts that lead to discussions; over a guy who makes like 400-450 posts but most of them being one-liners which don't stand out in any way and you feel are just made with the objective of boosting their post-count up.

The same should be taken into consideration when evaluating members for a promotion to the Supporters group. I feel like fulfilling the mere criteria of 0 warn count and x number of posts doesn't say much, and they should be evaluated in terms of merit too.

I feel like a little strictness and justification in the already existing rules and criteria can help big time and help the activity of the forum. A few decisions as such to provide the members an initiative to put more effort into what they contribute can do wonders.

I've read through all your posts and I thank you all for the contributions, but don't stop there! I intend for the discussions in this topic to go one for a LONG time considering the amount of reform needed to pull us back into a position where everyone enjoys coming onto here. Because of this I shall be drafting up a list of improvements (in the 1st post) ranging from MAJOR to MINOR regarding the complexity of the suggestions, and how long they will take to implement. Therefore if you could start making ideas relevant to how we go by improving this in response to the first list I have produced which evaluates all of your points.

 

OFFICIAL SUGGESTIONS, IMPROVEMENTS AND REFORMS:

 

MAJOR:

  • Re-organising the content, display and demographic of the forum as a whole. The current design caters too much to WWE and WWE games. Whilst this is a good thing, and brings in activity in that regard, it doesn't give those coming for WWE news and games news a reason to stick around after the game has been released.

This could be implemented via a post in the staff announcements, similar to "Want to learn English?" in Off Topic and also mentioned in the Board Rules complete with a new section which will earn prestige and promotions on the forum

Possible restrictions in certain sections could solve this or prompt the guests to sign up in a more persuasive manner by perhaps including a message every time they view a new section. The one we have at the moment is good but we need more of it to get more people signing up. --- NEED MORE FEEDBACK ON HOW THIS CAN BE IMPLEMENTED
  • A complete change in the ranking system, removing the requirements in the Supporter's group and adding other stipulations so it is continued to be reserved for the best Members who aren't VIP's. Also change the Staff and VIP groups around, perhaps increasing the size of each. This suggestion in specific is down to Andy Badwool for the most part.

 

MINOR:

  • Reforming MOTM in it's entirety. If this award is to continue perhaps have it accesible to ALL of the members, considering we value equality and for example a Moderator such as myself is just as much as a member as a a Member. Pardon the terrible pun. Nevertheless, as previously mentioned, it should be the member with best post quality which wins Member of the Month rather than quantity.
  • More things that integrate forum members together rather than having recognised "CAWs" members and "SDH" original members. This could be achieved by Events and therefore setting "Events Managers" and competitions --- MORE SPECIFICITY AND FEEDBACK NEEDED ON HOW THIS CAN BE IMPLEMENTED

I assure you my friend the increase in more mature members will only do this forum good, and I can speak from experience there.

Fantastic ideas Alex,I especially like the idea of the MOTM changing up,I had read around that it has been given out to random members,so awarding the members with the award due to their post quality is a good idea. Glad you are leading a reform,you'll do a good job!  :happy:

Appreciate your kindness as usual. I just did my best for the forum because SDH is my home.

Well, honestly I wanna post my ideas and feedbacks but I may get Warning points for those....

Regarding current activity, we're not getting a lack of guests coming onto the forum, as we recently smashed the record for "Most Online" back in September, it's the lack of members signing up that's the problem. Possible restrictions in certain sections could solve this or prompt the guests to sign up in a more persuasive manner by perhaps including a message every time they view a new section. The one we have at the moment is good but we need more of it to get more people signing up. --- NEED MORE FEEDBACK ON HOW THIS CAN BE IMPLEMENTED

 

  • Limiting the guests to register in order to see an image(any image).
  • Making the WWE Creations section only available to members.

 

Well, honestly I wanna post my ideas and feedbacks but I may get Warning points for those....

 

If you're not going to disrespect, insult, or anything that's against the rules, then post your ideas. If you're going to criticise a member for the welfare of the forum, just do it.

Appreciate your kindness as usual. I just did my best for the forum because SDH is my home.

Refrain from posting them as if they would look like you're attacking/insulting anyone, post in mature manner without having to cuss or what may be considered in anger and you'll be fine ;)

It honestly is a shame to see how much the SDH has gone downhill,the in-activity has increased which isn't the SDH way,@Alex I didn't realise that many members are inactive,they basically made this forum..

 

The MP/SDH merge was a complete failure in my honest opinion,and it was one of the reasons I left here a while ago,honestly this may sound childish but i preferred when it was just us,the SDH as a family,maybe it is now but a lot of people are inactive and have good valid reasons not to come back here. I remember a time when Andy and Simone put time and effort into this place,I'm sure Andy does the majority as he is the most active admin on here,but it isn't good enough,it's a sad day when a member has to come out and speak about how the forum is being run and what direction it's going in,when the owners are not taking the ideas that can possible 'save our forum' into consideration. And some of the ideas I have read on A's page are really forum changing.The main focus is on wrestling when it's gone as stale as John Cena's fruity pebbles,as suggested the forum needs more emphasise on other topics other than wrestling.

 

To me it looks like half the forum is scared of some of the staff which shouldn't be the case,afraid to speak their mind without getting told off,speak your mind! This forum is crying out for a complete rebranding and every idea should be taken into consideration! Good or bad it's still an idea! The actual laziness of some of the staff is deplorable,this shouldn't be the case as it was only 2 years ago this place had the most active and hardest working staff the WWE Games forums had to offer! Now look at it! Staff(not just mods/admins) only log in for a few moments,post a thing or two and log out and don't return for a few days!  

 

I hope something is fixed soon as the activity will drop even more,and maybe the income received for the forum will drop,and then ''some'' people will listen.

Sorry for interrupting you guys here, but what exactly is this merging thing?
