The next one is to make a couple of new skins, add features, free downloadable stuff like match torrents, etc. I've got a bunch of ideas. good ideas which I'm not able to share here as I don't want them to be stolen and end up being put to practice on the other side. Marcel and Pabz know what they are and know they are very doable.
The thing is, either we stop talking and do something, because we talk about this every summer and nobody does anything, either we continue to lament ourselves and hope for a miracle.
agreed, forum looks outdated and visually not that good. Another thing i have always wondered is if we have too many sections on this forum, alot of those can be placed together, there are parts of forum where last post is from last year, keep it simple and clear, there are topics which are popular and topics which are not. If new member joins us now, all he sees is a dead forum with loads of topics mostly responded months ago. Not a good sign.
I also think (as a marketing manager) that we need to find out the real purpose of this forum and why our forum should be different from the rest. What is the competitive edge we have (or we should create).
In a sense we are on the market for english speaking Barca fans. Due to the clubs recent success, i am pretty sure there is no lack of people interested in this type of forum. But we need to have something that makes us different from other forums and gives us some edge.
