miner concern
I have been gone for alittle bit of time and upon returning have seen little to no change no new topics activity extra.
This is a matter of some concern to me as this is one of the few helpful groupings left on the world wide web.
I don't mean to insult anyone here I only want to voice my concern and hope we can some how find away to keep this site alive. I'm not sure where to.put this but I felt a need to post it.

Thanks for your time and I hope to hear back soon.

Re: miner concern
I would tend to agree with you that OKP has been slow, if not dead, lately. And it's something I've noticed for many months now. <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad -->

If you have any suggestions on what we can do on our end to make it more appealing and active, we're all ears!

Re: miner concern
We could try to link to area other sites to try to get our group out there or even try talking friends into joining if they're more open to the concept of otherkin.

I'm not sure how else we can get more activity... Darkness embraced is a vampire and occult group with a forum may be a start for getting our name out.

Re: miner concern
I think the main issue is that the members we have have nothing new to say...so no new topics to add. What happens, however, is that if a topic is started a bunch of people reply to it...it's just that initial topic making that seems to be the problem.

Re: miner concern
Few replied to the topic I started in the dragon section....
I could try to start a new topic and see if it stirs up some life I suppose.

Re: miner concern
If you want to get new people to show up, at least initially somewhat actively, make a blurb to describe the forum, and post it on Tumblr, and ask other users here to post it, with links back to OKP forum. It's one of the quicker ways to revive attention to a site in the OK community.

Re: miner concern
Not so sure I'd want the Tumblr otherkin set coming to the forum...Tumblr is a mess of drama.

Re: miner concern
It's the Internet, Seraphyna. Drama comes with the territory. If the folk here are concerned about the place dying for lack of activity, beggars can't much be choosers for who initiates that activity, unless they want to lose as many members as they gain by being exclusionary.

Re: miner concern
The concerns are a few. There's drama and then there's drama for drama's sake...aka Tumblr. The internet will always have drama, but when people post just to cause it, they will likely not last long here anyway and not contribute anything of worth. There are also people who would come just to be trolls, and yes we have to approve someone's first post...but that still doesn't help the activity level any. It would be like encourage LiveJournal users to join. Sure you'd get a couple people who are serious, but a good number more who only join to cause problems. I for one would much rather "advertise" on existing forums and so forth.

Lets just hope for the best, and that this forum does not die.
