We need new people.  Perhaps if we were attached to an active website or something.
I have tried to bring in some people but mostly they just are interested in Outer Heaven or the odd TF2 night, not sticking 'round for the boards or channel proper.

We've had slightly more fresh meat recently than in most of this communo-whatever's history, so I don't think there's much need to push it.  We're all oddballs even among the geek crowd, so it's best to let people mesh in quietly by whatever weird method it happens.

I mean I'd personally like to talk to some other people once in a while too but I've got a very good solution to that: I talk to people somewhere else.

Well, the damn thing of it is that a flood of newbs, no matter how painful, tends to bring stimulation and longer lasting regulars. Mostly because they're a painful presence in the first damn place. Ideally, you kick the shit out of them and the better ones persist.

I haven't forgotten the first few minutes of finalfight. I kickbanned everyone who showed up, and of the ones who showed up again afterward, well, I slept with two thirds, and the rest want to kill me. On the whole I think that constitutes a wildly successful venture.

If Brent had a vagina it would have been a perfect score. Penis having motherfucker.

I don't know, TOO many nublets can overwhelm a place and ruin it. Seen that way too many times for my liking.

I think the content-producers among us are already hard at work, while the rest of us will struggle if forced.  We don't need much more than a front page that says "Here's what the members of this forum are responsible for," along with a list of impressive works.  Simply writing articles and blathering into microphones like every other website won't get any attention; at least, none that I would want to attract.

Primarily, I don't want an internet stranger to approach me and go "Oh, you're with them?  That place SUCKS," especially if I didn't do anything, sucky or otherwise.  And as an ambassador of the community, it's bad form to go "Yeah, I know, we do suck."

Who among us is qualified to objectively determine a project's quality, though?

I don't even understand why we have to have "ambitions".

Why can't this place be what it's always been: A glorified gentleman's club, minus the (intentional) sexism, and occasional schoolroom.

IT'S JUST A PLACE WHERE A BUNCH OF STUFF HAPPENS.

Am I the only one hearing the voice of Captain Murphy in every Sharkey post in this thread?

We, the collective, don't.  Some of us do, and a place where all of our works are showcased together is likely to bring each of them much-desired attention.

If you have no such works, you're free to ignore whatever is set up.  It's foolish to pressure anybody into creating something; not even the creator will like the result.

So a new The Mayor website? I'm game for that.

Good to hear.

I'll be approaching select members within the week.

Sharkey will always be the American Itagaki to me.  :8D:

So we don't want more SoraCrosses?

Actually, we need thousands of them.  And we need them to be rich, and then we need to sell them things.

We can sell them Kazz quote parodies on bumper stickers!

Cool story, bro.  But did you do her?

Or one of my personal favorites...

Quote from: Kazz
Best way to get rid of the Witch is to run up to her with the auto-shotgun and shoot her in the face a lot of times.

This also works on hunters, smokers, boomers, tanks, normal zombies, and teammates.

Most Kazz bumper stickers worth having would cause car accidents at the very least.

I'd pay money for "Press Left to Suck My Penis"
