All who indicated new design as the reason, come here: https://www.xtratime.org/forum/groups...site-look.html

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."
Alija Izetbegovic

Hey all,

We at VS are working hard to keep this site as lively as it has been.
We have worked hard on the new layout of the site and are hoping it has/will bring new members in.
As mentioned above, if you guys have concerns about how to revitalize the site, please provide us feedback and suggestions.

Saying things are poor is one thing, but let's work together and make our minds one, to find solutions.
If you guys have any constructive suggestions, regardless of how invalid you may think they are, let us know.
Preferably in this section here so we can keep track of them.
https://www.xtratime.org/forum/groups...site-look.html

Do you guys have any suggestions on how to bring new members on the site?

Thank you for your feedback,

Richard.

For me personally

1- New Design is okay nothing revolutionary or attention grabbing.

2 - The old design definitely has a special place among regular posters and before just flipping the switch overnight, I feel a poll should have been in place whereas everyone would state their preference.

IMHO Regular Posters are the front in which brings about new posters, don't disturb their peace!

3 - Dinasaur forum admins which have decaying mentalities almost only associated with banning and deleting posts and in other times abusing their admin privileges, great job!

4 - Yes having a more responsive less cluttered mobile experience for xt is comparable to The downfall of Nokia and Blackberry, you either catchup or be left behind

To respond to the posts above my previous one

Well, to attract new posters the forum must begin to look attractively new and modern

Meaning just adding green and like button is missing the point.

The layout is the problem it is not the theme, the layout in itself is so unorganized and overwhelming that only after 8 years of using XT I only managed to venture out of the barca forum, it is just far too many su forums with little use if any.
It's about quality not quantity.

Besides that sure the news feature is great but perhaps if xt would be known for something more unique outside of forums and regular football news it can start to distinguish itself and establish an identity.

Dunno what that can be, but in just throwing it out ther.

It's not intention to split hairs but we didn't have an upgrade. It's just a new skin which hardly anyone liked. 2 members that I know of.

XT is running on approx 6-7 year old VB software. If it was upgraded and up to date it would attract new members.

Like I said, we just need 1 of you here 3 times a week. The same person so they get to know us and what we want.

Having so many people using one account just causes confusion.

For a start upgrade to an up to date VB and re-design the home page! It looks horrible!! Nobody would consider joining viewing that.


But it really shouldn't be me saying this. Practically all the rules on web site building and maintaining have been broken.

Look Bentex, you may talk about you, but US and WE it is something you wasted the chance to use when you were demoted as Admin. Just stop pretending you have any importance and let the others talk.

Nice deflection there.

We could've had a constructive conversation on what XT needs to go forward. With me who has built many successful websites and maintained and upgraded them to keep up with changes in tech.

But it's fine, I'm an outsider.

This decline would never have happened on my watch. The Hungarian forum has 10 members posting daily and another 10-15 when we have games. At the sametime the biggest club in the world with the most fans is just dead. Even our prediction league has 10+ participants! That's because we've organized.

Ok, if you don't want my input...I'll stck to the Hungarian section. Cheerio!

Ps, if Reza or any of the new guys want any advice or have a question, you can PM me at anytime.

There is no deflection. One of the users posted that Administradors abusing power are among the cause of of decline. That is you, loser. There is no constructive conversation with a liar like you. And you can give your input, just stop pretending you are talking for XT or was a constructive member. Keep yourself in the dark and I will not need to remind you that you were demoted for being the worst kind of Administrador ever. Dont push beyond the line.

Ten years ago I suggested that once a week a random member gets deleted. No explanation just disappear. As far as I know that idea was never put into effect but you are welcome to use it. I'm sure that would bring some thrill to this place.

Yada, yada

Oh, and I would like to be made Community Manager, thank you very much.

Seeing as all the other regulars in the Lazio forum are all FMs, admins and what not it's kind of humiliating to be just a measly user with no powers.
