This 'A Thousand Horizons' thing has generated a lot more traffic on the forums this past day, and it got me thinking about how to get all of these new members to stick around longer. Then I looked at the LP chat forum and realized just how few threads there are in there. In the month of August there have only been 3 threads created that actually asked legitimate questions regarding LP (thoughts on The Catalyst 1 year later, LP's autograph value and whether Glee could cover a song). I know that a lot of us aren't necessarily "fan boys/girls" or what-have-you anymore but I still think that the mass majority of people who log on to the forums every day want to talk about Linkin Park. You know, because this is the Linkin Park Association . Looking in Newbie camp I see 10+ users in the past month or two that went out of there way to welcome themselves to the boards (to signify that they intend on actually posting). Most of them don't make it past 20 posts. And looking at each of their 20 posts, they almost all come in either news or LP chat. If you ask me, the problem is simply that not enough threads, specifically in LP chat, are made. I realize that most of you guys who are reading this (admins, every day posters...) have probably asked and answered every LP question in the book a million times. But I think we should try to make more threads even if we've had similar threads in the past. Doing this gives the "quiet majority" on this site more to do which will hopefully make the site busier. Another thing I've noticed is that some of these members want to talk about LP so badly that they go ahead and look at threads that were made months or years ago and post in them. The top 10 worst LP song thread is a recent example. So perhaps necroposting would be less frequent if more threads were made more often I'm probably taking for granted how there is still a good amount of activity despite there being no hype for a new album but in my opinion the LPA can do better. Looking at the LP chat forum right now is, quite frankly, a bit embarrassing. We should all make an effort to make a significant amount of threads that relate to the band which this forum is for. Though for regular posters, the rest of the boards in general could also use some more stuff. I'm not sure why I just wrote a fucking essay/rant thing about this but the title of this forum IS "Feedback & FAQ." I guess I'm doing the feedback part, ha.
