I agree somewhat with the others that have posted here. However, forums aren't a dead cause, they are just losing steam after major games start rolling out and people started to move away from the decent forums and secluding themselves from communities. A couple of things that might be able to help the users to stay might be: 1. De-clutter. The mobile site isn't exactly easy to navigate, and the vast multitude of threads and topics is daunting and confusing to a new member. Try archiving old topics (threads that haven't been posted on for x number of months) and putting them in a new collapsed subsection, which if user decide to go and root around the archives, they can simply roll open the archive and get digging. 2. Index and prioritise. This is a fantasy RP forum, is it not? If yes, then prioritise the fantasy/RP topics and threads over the other topics. Also, index, try making a wikipedia-style jump-to index, where users can simply find the general topic they want, click it and it will jump to that section for them to peruse. 3. Crunch down on spam. Advertise minor staff positions, Trawlers or De-Spammers, who get rewards for going through threads and topics and remove spam posts (obviously you'll need a moderator or someone who can approve the De-Spammer's choice) and they'll get points for every approved spam post that they get rid of. If you give them good rewards for their work, I can guarantee you'll get at least a small flow of members simply looking for 'work'. 4. Advertisements. I know and can see that you already have a few scattered about the site, but one easy way to get an increased flow of money is to simply add more advertisements. One of the best and user-friendly ways to do it is to put in 4-5 no-sound no-video advertisements right at the bottom, where users will see them if they scroll down to the archives, or the lower prioritised topics. 5. Collapse your topics. There's nothing worse than having to scroll through masses of threads before getting to the one you want. If you decide to not to point 2, then this is a good idea. Simply put all of your threads under a topic into a collapsible box, so it aids with de-cluttering the site. Also, don't lose faith in the younger generations, I'm no exactly a child but I'm still in my early teens, you just need to advertise to the right people. And as a side-note, I typed all this, none of it is copied from anywhere.
