Stupid Darkforum Facebook - How you're doing it wrong.

Why does a forum, which is a social media site at it's most core essence, have a facebook page?

- If you are talking on it you are driving traffic away from the site. By posting content that could just have easily been posted here you are decreasing the potential number of pages and activity - decreasing page ranking increases, and ad revenue.

- the content is posted in facebook format which is an even shittier, more dramatic, less grammatically correct version of the worst of darkforum. People don't put any thought to the shit they post on facebook, it's like a bypass for that filter between your brain and mouth.

Darkforums facebook should be free advertisement for the site, not an alternative to it - if you have something to say, say it here and then link this post to the official site....

Is that wise when we're discussing strategies to purchase the site from it's current owners?

Quit bitching. Traffic is massively up right now. Two weeks ago it was four of us talking shit. If anything facebook has helped instead of hindered.

I can facebook on my phone. I can't be bothered trying to navigate this site unless I'm on a computer.

And I can't open this site at work, my boss would have a seizure.

I think some of our discussions should remain secret in the FB group. Like the plans for the site. But I do see Manifesto's point. A lot of what we say there could just as easily be put here.

Rules are what ruin shit. Let people say whatever and wherever. And my point still stands. None of you fuckers have been here.

I didn't say make it a rule. Just that it's basically the same content.

But it's not. I linked two posts on FB to the forum itself. And who shows up? Alliance of Concerned Men. Nigga ain't been here since back in the day. I was planning on digging through the archives for more comedy gems and posting them on FB. Whatever medium gets people here... I don't give a rat shit.

I don't want to get all super-WL bitchy, but up until a couple weeks ago it was me, fr0g, Sik Simon, and the occasional old user stopping by briefly. And the spammers/guests. Sik Simon would post youtube videos and rants, fr0g would lurk and pop up with a fr0g comment every other day, and I would read out goth poetry on webcam. That was it. Since we all reconnected on FB and made the page active, traffic has massively increased on the forum site. I realize that 6 users instead of 4 doesn't seem like much, but the fact that recent threads list on the right side gets full on a daily basis means that we must be doing something vaguely right. It may not be the best long-term solution, but obviously our hands are tied considering we don't have the power to do shit around here.

You're still hot, though.

Mostly does not matter. The ad revenue here amounts to pennies a day. Which is why one would think that CG would jump an opportunity to sell. Facebook, or here, whatever Wicked did increased traffic tenfold while impacting the site not at all negatively

Should I send a massive mailer out as well??? Or did you do that already Wicked??

No I just picked out the people I didn't hate and sent them an email.

But a mass mailer would be good, even though most of the addresses are probably defunct. Worth a try, though?

I could go trolling through random chatrooms spamming our URL. Do it on battlenet lol before and after a game. Have it on CTRL + V and just spam it randomly in the game.

Look how much shit has changed already with only a few returning members. I think we're on the up.

Until someone kills themselves. Then it's back to square one.
