This site is all but dead, nearly. It's sad that we have 8,000+ members but it looks as if we have less than 15. 

As I'm aware, I know Mournblade is the administrator but with out full admin powers because Feld0 wouldn't hand it over as far as I know? What we need is a complete revamp of these forums as it is too outdated.

 

Now, seeing as how the Nintendo NX is the newest rumor for Nintendo's latest game console; I propose that we should dedicate this site to that now...or, maybe have a hybrid of this site along with NX. Either way, something needs to be done as the Wii U is a dying console and there's no more hype associated with this console which has helped a lot with this site dying (let aside the less active community and outdated site). Updating the banner here and there won't change anything.

As a veteran of this site that went from Projectcafe.com, to wii2boards.com, and now thewiiu.com, I know that with every overhaul of a site it has always sparked new interest in the site and engaged community interest again. I don't know if anyone is for this but it seems all we can do if people actually care about this forum living on.  

 

Now Mournblade, I know you have done an outstanding job in all that you've been able to do with your limited administrated privileges, but one cannot deny the downfall of this site so far. So imho, I would recommend trying to get with programmers and designers so we can revamp this site. 

If none of this is possible then I am sorry, but I thought I'd try as it is a pretty great community. 

 

If you guys can think of anything better I'd love to hear it.

 

Edit: Sidenote, no pointless, non-constructive responses. You are not helping anything at all.

I like the friends I've made on this site, even if it doesn't pick up much I'd like to keep it going if possible with an NX focus.

Others have tried.

http://thewiiu.com/t...e-go-from-here/

 

 

When Feld0 last visited here a month or two ago to fix a few database issues, he told me that if you guys wanted the forums tweaked to reflect that of the upcoming "NX" stuff, you would have to let him know. 

 

Honestly, this is the best place to do it: https://twitter.com/feld0

 

Mourn tried contacting him by email or another way and didn't get any response or at least a timely one. I had tweeted Feld0 about database issues here and he was fairly prompt. So, if you have twitter I'd suggest tweeting him a link to this thread or just that you want thewiiu.com forums updated. The more tweets people send him the more he'll realize there is a demand.

 

I don't think there is very much demand.

I don't think the site is in danger of being removed or taken down if that's a concern. I am sure it generates enough revenue from ads via guest traffic which pays the bills.

This is pretty much the case here. There is really only so much that I can attempt to do now that I haven't already tried or will even be willing to try.

At this point in time, the forums aren't very active, but there is still a somewhat active userbase, some posting every now and then, and has a reletivley clear future of not going down.

 

But like Hype said, if you guys message Feldo yourselves, through Skype (or other means), the more he would realize there is a demand.

Maybe add a 3DS section? It would be nice to talk about the Mario&Luigi: Paper jam game that comes out in a few hours (It's predownloaded and the OS says it came out today but the game refuses to launch and says it's too early.)

In the meantime use this section http://thewiiu.com/f...general-gaming/ . No sense waiting for a section to be added when there already is a suitable one.

I actually have an idea, but it might not be something you will all be warm to. Another forum I am on, 3DS Buzz has recently been dying, mainly due to inactivity and Adam is too busy to do anything about it, so he has got me to see if people were up for me taking over the forum and merging it with my blog, NintyBuzz. My idea would be the possibility of merging this forum with the 3DS Buzz forum all under the NintyBuzz name.

My plan for NintyBuzz is to make it more user orientated with articles and stuff like that. But obviously I understand if you don't want to go ahead with a merger... Plus there's the difficult task of actually getting Feld0's approval... Though he may say yes seeing how he is a former admin of 3DS Buzz back it its glory days.

What are your opinions on this?

Don't put the cart before the horse. There really isn't any sense in asking users if no one else inquired to Feld0 about making changes. The OP of this thread hasn't responded here since making the thread and some of the others have said they would like a revamped forum with NX focus. If those interested are not going to take the initiative to make contact then it's pretty much a lost cause.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a cool idea. But the problem is Feld0, lol. Attempts have been made before to update the forums to more or less "future proof" them aka NX, he said he would do so if users were interested. I told him they were and never heard back. This is just one instance.
