Default Hoops - essentially alive?

That forum used to be only occupied by sixers fans and was uninteresting, any particular reason why its seems so alive now ?

Did they just unmoderate it into existence , or ignore some legal warnings that got the wind up the admin/owner ?

I used to / and still take a immense amount of delight going to Hoops with a bag of popcorn when they lose, don't make playoffs, when they select a fat import, or their social media activity is that of a Funeral home.

Unfortunately, due to the Funeral Home nature of this forum, I am forced to go there and actually have to converse with Adelaide fans.

Not a big fan of that forum. Looks crap, posting as a guest is crappier, as you then cant get that person back if they have a go at you haha Twitter especially has made forums slightly more redundant in general.

Pros & cons of hoops....

Pros

Talk about local basketball .... all the way down to BigV & even VJBL.

More activity than here.

Less bitching than in here( although the inactivity of this place lessens that )

Cons

Messy format.

Lack of modding. ( Isaac I believe does it all himself)

Guest posting. I have even said to Isaac that everyone should be registered... that way you have a small idea of who you are replying to.

So following on from the above, how many people would be interested if this place got a makeover? How many people do you think could be attracted here?

It's been nearly 1000 days since a new user was registered.

No new blood made the place stale.

Registrations have to be manually approved by Derek, and he hasn't bothered to do so since 2014. Could well be that there are a significant number of people attempting to register.

I think somehow you'd have to ask those who no longer post here haha Absolutely prefer this layout, ambience and overall look, over Hoops

If by makeover you mean a captain of the ship who is hands on and actively looking to get more traffic, then yes I think that would be a big positive.

Yes, to both questions, although it will be a partnership.

I've mentioned a few times already, that I registered (as a placeholder) the OzHoops sub on Reddit. It's a ready made forum with all the features you could possibly want and free to join and run. It has exactly two inactive subscribers right now, myself and Stumps.

If someone wants to relaunch this site, on Reddit is how I'd do it. Assuming this person is of some reasonable reputation, I'd hand you the moderation keys tomorrow.

I'm always a fan of a re-brand and re-launch.

Hoops lay-out and annons aren't the best. But the activity wins me over.

This is by far the easier forum to navigate and has more quality posters so yes please, Gordon.

Don't expect anything instantaneous, we have a few things to sort out - most of them expensive

I can't stand Reddit. The inability to actually follow a conversation ruins it for me.

Wherever we can get the numbers up, I'm in. Hoops is better than here these days because of the number of users and quantity of discussion.

In between you need to quickly skip over the fanbois, school kids and morons.
