12 people have voted for start over. So, since this is an FF12 website, that option should be done.

As of now, I think I will convert the forums... regardless of the results here. Sorry guys ^^

I have given it some thought, and a brand new community won't appeal anymore nowadays. People are more likely to join existing ones than new ones.

However, the communtiy will have a HUGE make-over to make it suitable for something as FFNext. That doesn't mean I will just replace the name "FFXII.Net" with "FFNext" everywhere, but that means I will delete a lot of forums(and topics), merge some and add a lot of new ones. Only, you can still log in with your same details ^^

Forums will upgraded to IPB v2.3.1 btw (or the latest available by then) and, I will look for some nice add-ons/hacks/mods.

Then, close this thread that shouldn't have been made in the first place.

No, I don't think that will happen. New members are most likely to join new communities, than communities that have members with 7000+ posts. Plus, there are A LOT of dead posts here... and well, that's why this community should be torn down, and rebuilt again.

Oh well, I guess FFNext isn't going to be as new as I thought it was going to be. That's kind of a bummer. I looked forward to starting all over again.

I have to agree with KI. Someone with that many posts is intimidating, and it gives the impression that the community is set and not accepting new members.

Starting over would be nice just because it will be new.

*defends

xD


it is true that people will see BA and his colossal post count, and may not want to register because there's already people with such high numbers



i think that the NEXT project should be something brand new, with a new community, but we shall see


i also think (and know) it would be a pain to try and transfer the old database and then upgrade the forum to a new version because you would have to try to eliminate the forum style part of the DB which still links things to the ffxii root folder


it's much nicer to have a clean new board to work with tongue.gif

Yeah. I think the members here should have a say so. We are the ones that actually made FF12.net last this long. We could have all gone our separate ways and abandon this site, but we didn't. It kind of urks me that Kaj made a poll asking us what to do, and then all of a sudden he makes his own decision. Why not start new? I mean, seriously. Look at sites that have people with over 7,000 posts. They rarely get new members, because like you said PG, they feel intimidated. New members like to go where it's fresh and stuff. That's how this community became what it did... at a new site. Well, it isn't new anymore, but it was new at one point.

I'm really serious about this Next stuff, as you may see. I want this to go right. We can start a whole new community, and become something great. Why keep this old FF12.net forum stuff with Next? It makes no sense. Especially if you are going to delete a whole bunch of threads and stuff. That's going to take longer than starting brand new. It's not like all the members here won't re-register at Next if it's new. They will, and the post whores will post loads, and it will be a great new community. If Next doesn't bring in new members, then that's its destiny. So, let's say, hypothetically, no new members come, and the dedicated FF12.net members who re-registered at Next stay. I think it would be nice to have an all new place for the dedicated members. We've been here for a long time. It would be nice to post at an all new place. smile.gif

So, who is all with me?

*makes a protest sign*

LET'S START ALL NEW!

*raises sign*

Someone may see me as being defensive, but I have an opinion, and I'm just airing it. It's a forum, and this a place to discuss, so I'm just discussing.

Ill just agree

^ Very serious... it has always been =___="

Anyways, I think as long as WE don't cause spam/troll and anything of the like... they, as in the newcomers won't feel scared of joining..

Oh I'll be the first to say that I'll be in their protection.

How about I will just do my thing by then (and prove how 'clean' my make-over can be) and if people are don't like it, we can still wipe it all clean and start over tongue.gif
People won't be initimitated by somebody with 7k posts, but will be initimitated by an empty board.

^ Yeah, some members of Gamespot's very active forums have 60000+ posts (yes, that wasn't a typo), and new members aren't deterred to join the community and be active.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing the forum's makeover. If it doesn't work out, then we can just do the old switcharoo tongue.gif

KI makes a good point. It will be a new board, but we'll have lots of new posts quickly. There are still members here who are loyal and active and plan to go over to FFNext. I think it would draw people in.
