So i havent seen anything recently celebrating what would be 14? years of TUP.

The things that used to make this place really cool, even when the wrestling ewas not so good, have died down and maybe thats part of the reason we havent had so many new members or old gang coming back and posting alot?

What you playing at Adders?

No point having annual TUPiversary award categories when there are so few of us.

It used to be good with a couple of dozen regulars to spread out in to nominations.

It would be good to have some newbies.

A few days before TUPiversary I asked Adders is he wanted to do anything. I got no response.

You cant do the same thing you've always done and expect a diff result.

The fb page could be alot more active and the website design could be improved.

Either that or just wait until no one bothers to post anymore and kill the site

So... just to review where we're at....

Some of the few remaining members who care (over several threads) suggest activities and other ways to liven the site and maybe bring people in. 

The admin says there is no point because we don't have enough members, expressing a wish for new members. 

The same few remaining people who care remind the admin that if we do these things, those new members might arrive. 

The admin once again ignores the suggestions put forthwith, and once again expresses a wish for new members. 

Okay. 

BTW #Heel the site design is beyond my control for the record.  I can only control threads and member accounts and don't have the technical knowledge anyway.

The web wiz forum software is free to download, if this one is hosted by a premium one then i would imagine someone would just need the credentials to go in and update it

It doesnt look overly complicated - surely whoever designed this one could at least update the logo / colours / banner and that and then maybe install the latest update for mobile compatibility?

We dont need major changes, just something to freshen it up

No I said there was no point having annual TUPiversary awards with so few posters as we'd only have the same poster names in every single category.

Folks are more than welcome to bring back poster of the month, Ticket Wars, WWE prediction game etc.

If someone wants to create a new forum banner or knows someone good at that kinda stuff, again they are more than welcome to.

Since coming back there's been such a quietness that has shocked me we still have great posters like heel Londor and fletch but otherwise we have posters that show up maybe a week or 2 that's it 

Is there anyway to get old members to come back ? 

Can we use Twitter hell maybe get in contact with some actual independent stars see if they would be interested in sharing their opinions ? 

The place used to be thriving with life I'd hate to see it flicker out.

I tried reaching out to all the old members I have in my Facebook friends a while back, I either got no response or they said they had lost interest in wrestling or were content to get their wrestling chat via social media methods these days. I think the only person I was able to lure back was JJsGirl who literally did one post then vanished again. This was despite my best efforts telling them that the bickering and trolling that I know drove some people away had long ended and this was basically a place for intelligent wrestling chatter now. 

Sadly many forums are in the same boat with social media groups becoming the most popular way to chat online about various topics these days. 

If it were down to me I would maybe give the forum a facelift by updating the look etc and then try reaching out to as many former members as possible, even if one in every twenty came back it would be worth it.

if someone was to make a banner for the site, how do we get it added and are you able to update the colour scheme of the forum to reflect it and get rid of the black / orange which it currently is?
