(20 September 2018 - 07:24 AM)We fought the spambots for a while, they just became more and more numerous, it was like deleting their shit told them somebody was here to see their shit and they sent more bots...
For me, a huge obstacle in getting people here is that I don't have many friends who 1. visit message boards and 2. who like wrestling. That's why I come here. I get to have (mostly) intelligent conversations about wrestling with people here that I can't have in my day-to-day life because nobody's a big enough fan or they've all grown out of it (a point that is made to me nearly daily).
Also, I know this forum is supposed to be a more general draw not just for wrestling fans, but if I've learned squat about business since starting my career it's that we target an audience. In my eyes, this is a wrestling board first. I can talk about mobile apps and tech and media all damn day at the office, but this is where I come to relax.
You just can't force people to come here. SrH and others, how many times have you guys pinged me to come be active? How many of them worked? I might stick around for like a week or so, and then I would leave because nobody was posting. I came back unsolicited because I wanted to start having conversations about wrestling with people again.
I don't really care to ask for a bunch of rules or extras or whatever, but that's me. I just want what we have because I like it.
I agree. With the added bonus that I've known most of you fuckers for nearly a decade.
With that said....someone go spam TJ and get him back here
