Re: We get the traffic, why do so few people post here?


I think a lot of the problem is how long winded it is to post anything, plus... and don't take the is the wrong way... but how 'dated' the site is.

This isn't down to anything other than the software which is pretty basic.... but and here is the 'but' and it is a 'Big' but.... I don't think there is anything that can be done to update and fix the problem because of how the data is stored etc. It can only be used in the runboard layouts. Although I'm sure there is a way, but a VERY expensive way to export the databases and import them into something more modern and up to date, but as I say... a VERY, VERY expensive project!

I hate to say this as I 'detest' Facebook with a passion, but you think how easy it is to post a pic and say something, all be it a few words.

I used to build and maintain websites and one of the projects I worked on was a Star Wars costuming group based in Ireland called the Emerald Garrison who had the the exact same problem with a diminishing website that was based on Forums.

The only way we could revamp the club and bring them in to the modern day was to build a complete new website which worked in line with their FaceBook pages and shut down the forum and only use it for reference for the members. We then used another updated forum software that was able to integrate with the new website. It took sometime for the members to get used to it, but now they have a 'thriving' members only website that is pretty kewl and easy to post on because all the images are within the website itself. Oh, they also have a Movies side of the club to, including Batman members...

Check it out if you like: ]The Emerald Garrison

And the Movies division: ]Heroes & Legends

So, we have to stick with the clunkiness and it's down to us BAT enthusiasts to post more interesting articles to keep the interest alive!

This is just my personal opinion!

I can't say I disagree with a thing you said,
thebigblackbat. I think a first step would be to update the graphics here. Looking at transferring stuff would be a longer process.

Well I'd be more than willing to help out with the Graphics or anything in that department, but again I fear that this system is extremely limited in what can be done as it's from a time when these types of things weren't bothered with header graphics and graphics or indeed layouts... but if Ed would like me to have a look at anything, like I say I'd be more than happy too!

Hey Bro.

    If you're willing to doo that I'm all for it. I and the rest of the staff welcome all the help we can get. I think we've done a lot so far but if there's anything else that can help (obviously within the Runboard framework) we're open to it.
     I'll make you a moderator so that you can start poking around and access the Runboard Help Forums. Post in the Belfry so we can discuss things in there. (Just remember I have final say before final changes are made emoticon )

Hey, I know it has been a while.

As far as the forum is concerned, it is just an old style forum. Need to upgrade to a SMF or Vbulletin style forum if possible.

Hey BC,

Please forgive my total lack of understanding as to what you are referring but since most of the layout stuff is dictated by the fine folks at Runboard I doubt I or the staff of the BOTB specifically would have the ability to change that. I would be happy however to share this feedback with them in hopes that they could work that into the mix.
Since, however I'm an absolute dummy where this is concerned I would be most appreciative if you could give me a layman's explanation as what you are talking about.

Thanks,

Oh I was just saying on how the newer forums have integration with social media, so you can login and post with any social media account, etc. I’m not knocking this place, I love it!

No worries Bro. I just wasn't familiar with the terminology. I'm not a fan of Social Media (in fact I refuse to use it at all) but I do agree. That's the wave of the present and I'm hoping Runboard Mgt will (if they aren't already looking into it) start working on it. For example, at my suggestion they did make a rudimentary smart phone viewable set-up. Could it be better? Maybe, I honestly don't know, I only just got one of them myself and I really don't use it to it's potential (and likely won't).
