How to #MakeSploderGreatAgain
« on: February 10, 2019, 10:43 pm »
1) Make sure the staff actively and clearly communicate with members what they hope to accomplish and suggest improvements if they see them so that the public is fully aware of them.  For instance, if forums moderators want a recruitment center to be changed up, then they tell that member.  If forums moderators want a board, such as the Debate Tower, run differently, then they communicate these ideas clearly to the member in charge of the Debate Tower.  In doing this, they can ensure ever member is in the same page and everyone feels adequately adressed and valued in the community.  If members don’t comply, then further actions can be taken.
2) Start new initiates to engage members.  This can include temporary events like  game shows, forum weekend events, game-making competitions, etc. or more long-term categories and boards.   There are truly a wide range of possibilities as far as this goes.  By continually starting up new events, this can allow members to feel engaged and have a consistent reason to come back and check on Sploder.  This is a small community so having events that keep everyone interested and involved could definitely go a long way.
3) Ensure a diversity of thoughts in the staff.  While it obviously makes it easier when everyone agrees on most issues and it may seem like more people are on the same page, debates can allow for new and better ideas to develop and form.  Diversity of thought can allow moderators to reach new conclusions that take into account a wide range of opinions from all members on the site. 
4) Active members are promoted to leadership positions and inactive members are demoted.  If people keep their positions for doing nothing, things can get stagnant.  If people have no potential to move to a position where they can further get their ideas accomplished, this can demotivate them to continue staying on there site.  Those who are most active should be the ones who largely determine what direction the site goes in. 
5) Provide people a reason to keep coming back.  While this goes in line with the other ideas, it’s important that people feel a reason to keep coming back and don’t feel distanced from the community.  With members leaving, this is more important that other.  Items 1-4 in this list are some of the many ways that can be used to help accomplish this.

Honestly, there's a lot of ways to make Sploder great again. But we can start by doing something about the Flash thing. If it's possible that we can still keep making games, I say go for it. As for the Staff, well, I doubt my views will count for much so I'll keep them to myself. Nevertheless, I hope Sploder becomes great once more.
Remorse does not atone for the actions of the guilty.

Speak up! Everybody's opinion is valued here. Are you worried that you'll be punished?
