I've just got my proverbial plate full at the moment. Making this clan thing, finding a better job, working and other stuff all have to be sorted out meaning the changes i make to the FRI main page are all bunched at once and nobody is giving me idea's so i just throw random shit on.
Aye you seemed it. You shouldnt feel nervous, you seem well spoken and most know your a smart bad man, so it should just flow when its in your head. Instead of writing a massive script, try bullet points, just jog you if you have forgotten any shit

To be fair you did a good job on the video, especially now that you said it was scripted, you did a good job of making it seem spontaneus!

but i think ultimatly the video will just put people off lol - theres not much incentive to join the place given what you said in the video

and fair enough at trying to make it bigger than it is, personally i would focus on trying to promote the forum as much as possible and using the site as a shell just to attract people and direct them straight to the forum. I think the main site should make it clear the forums where everythings at, that way random stragglers that come from a google search know to look at the forums rather than at the main site itself (which unless its done well would put people off)

Honestly, this place can never compete with the bigger sites in terms of reviews or cheats or even a entertaining blog, so i think its best just to make it clear to people not to judge the place on the site and that they should give the forums a try.

so yeah direct people straight to the forums in my opinion

Blogs are usually just random people talking about specific things, anyone here could easily compete with the best of them - although I don't think you can ever really look at blogs like that.

Spot on really. The site's never going to have something worth visiting on its own, it's always going to be about the forums really. And with the homepage as it stands, it's like "here's some strange reviews" and you have to check the navi bar to even notice there's a forum which should be the main thing the site is promoting.

Hal out of interest do you know how many hits the main site gets per week?

I don't understand how people will get here without knowing about it in the first place. I'm not sure someone will search 'I am having Frame Rate Issues', come across this forum and think 'wow this place is just what I need'. If you Google 'gaming forums' this place won't be high on the list and faces too much competition. And even if by some miracle we got someone here who nobody knows, they will stay for 10 minutes, post once and then never return because they don't fit in.

I think we should just keep the site for our own use, something we can play with in our spare time etc.

That's me!

Too much gaming, drinking and... you know the rest


In all seriousness, yeah, i know the site doesn't have much of a chance of competing unless we get something special to it. It's just something for me to do in the few hours of spare time that i have when i put off sleep.

Bobs talks the truth, change it to be based around the forum. Maybe have it so the homepage is three direct link buttons, one for the forum, one for the main website, one for shadows turbo death metal page

This is the best option. I'm actually self teaching myself more Flash in an attempt to be able to make something good for the front page
I'd obviously prefer it if someone who's strong at flash would do it so I dont have to, but it's something i gotta learn completly sometime.

Could always do a temp one in html though.
