Yeah, I can't believe there are 10 arsenal fans here either, I estimate five of six :).

The problem with non-posting, is that it's contagious, its self perpetuating. People don't post, so someone who visits the site isn't inclined to post, so the next person who comes to the site dosen't post, etc, etc. That's why so many forums atrophy and die, lack of input.

I agree it is difficult to come up with something to converse about, that's why I generally write so much crap. Theres alot of news, but most of it is trivial, and unlikely to excite people to the extent where they would be willing to post, particularly if they haven't done so before. Indeed the fact that it is necessary to register, is in itself repulsive to spontaniaty, and robs the forum of much casual posting. The people who post are part of the set of the xtratime community which is a very small subset of the web user at large.

I think you'll find most of the more active forums, are active not because there is alot of intresting matters to discuss, so much as because theres a sense of community. On the real madrid forum, its not simply people talking about real madrid, but real madrid 'fans' talking among themselves. This is personified by the brazil forum, whos regular posters, seem to be refugees from the Pets-Talk-To-Pets message board ;). The fact that it is informal, means that the regular contributors usually post in large volumns, so even though there are only a relitevely small number of them, it gives the apperance of a very active forum.

When talking about advitising, you have to remember that this isn't an arsenal forum in isolation, but part of a larger network, xtratime. So, it's really the responsibility of the administrators to bump up the buisness, if they do it effectively then posts at the arsenal should increase. Perhaps its simply a case of them having a crap system, and wanting to minimize the number of contributions

Plan of action

1) Create a cult, call it the arse-ologists, then recruit john travolta and nicole kidman to front it for us.
2) Create a bunch of porn banners that direct traffic to our forum, we are sure to get loads of posts, most containing a large number of f's or *s should I say.
3) Do a publicity stunt, paint your green and then jazz on bill gates. While you are being beaten up by the police, continually shout 'I love it up the arse'.
4) Subliminal messages, create a porn site with the words arse featuring extensively on it. Or even better, us the term 'arse anal'. Lots of people have already started doing this one.
5) Advertise in a gay forum - like men, want to chat about men playing with their big balls, why don't you cum to....ducky.
6) Break spurs fans delusions, and get them to support the only real club in north london.
7) We could create a get to know you thread, where we could create a sense of community which I have previously eluded to.
8) We could try to make lots of intresting posts, so that people will want to come back for more.

Is my help needed?:) hehe, well it's true i turned Real Madrids forum into a beaming center of life almost singlehandedly, so I may be of some help in this crisis situation:D Not that i wanna brag or anything of course:eek::eek:
Arsenal used to be my favorite team behind Real, so I'll tell you - the real secret to making a plave livlier is commercial. Iyt sounds so obvious doesn't it?, but the old way of being is still the best:) Now all of you should put in your ICQ profiles, that you are Arsenal fans, or anything that has to do with football. This way desperate people on ICQ will meet you and you can tell them about this forum. That's how Wakky landed here in the first place - he found me on the ICQ! Many of the posters in Real madrids forum are people from my ICQ account they've simply been lead there by me! That's one of the best ways to make a site prosper - now keep this to yourselves, believe me it works!:D:D:D

From a lover of icq....

Ingenius, of course, ICQ.

Not only does it put you in contact with a lot of people, but also the most lonely and desperate people. In other words....the perfect posters.;)

Thanx Liabelas

Hello fellow Gunners!
Arsenal has been my fav team in EPL for a long time first because of Bergkamp and Overmars and now thanks to the French Connection!
Well what Labas said is true!Before the Real forum was dead and now it is one of the top 3 of Xtratime.

Tell my Gunners, what has happened to Weah's spiritual son, namely Wreh?Is he still a Gunner?Does he play a lot or does he spend his time on the bench?

Arsenal are very lucky to have Wenger!He is one of the best coaches in the whole world.

I heard that Milan made an offer for him for the season 2001-2002...is that true?I really hope as i really respect him a LOT!

Anyways, Gunners, just EXPLODE THOSE WANKERS FROM OLD TRAFFORD AND SHOW THEM WHO ARE THE TRUE KINGS OF THE EPL...

Wreh has not played a lot for arsenal this season because he's been on a loan to Birmingham.
I dont think he's been sold, yet, but as far as I know He's been tranfer listed so its just a matter of time.
(Right me guys if im wrong)

Wreh has being loaned out the past season (to Birmingham I think) and if I not mistaken he has been transfer listed now so his future at Upson Park does not look that good

And Bodat I dont think anybody knows exactly whats going on with the players now
One day the newspaper write one of your player been sold and the next day they writes that the same player has signed a new contract
so...We just need to wait until the pre-season is over and see what will happend to the players and in this case Wreh
I really dont understand why Wenger wanna get rid of him, we really need one more forward substitute besides Kanu
dont you think?

Yeah, except it's genrally preferable if the the sub isn't complete crap.

I think wreh was loaned to the blues for about a month, during which he broke his hand or something. Then he was loaned out to den bosch, or something, in the dutch league.
