if you really want to make some positive input skip the BS for once and lay down what the changes would be if you were in charge. go wild, spout your wildest fantasies, get all of your chest here and now.

just to pick on NIK as an example saying NIK ahould be admin/mod would "make things better" doesn't make a strong case.

Absolutely the first step would be to get some people in charge that actually post regularly and are invested in the forum. Doesn't have to be NIK. Anyone who will try to make this a better place will work at this point. Baby steps. Our wildest dreams don't mean shit without someone who can put time into making them happen.

I think the reason everyone is bringing up NIK is not because we like him better than other people but because he is one of the few people willing to put work in to improve the forum.

ok.


1. Check NIKs status. :o

2. I won't make the other changes until the 'reopening' to make it a fresh break but if you can agree together on what forum sections need to either be moved/created/merged then we'll roll with that.

how come a forum i had never heard of before like the coli is able to thrive??  

that place has the most posters ive ever seen



Coli used to be SOHH which was (and still is) much larger than here. Honestly surprised people still post at this graveyard, then again all these posters are stuck on Snoop Dogg trying to resurrect the West Coast like they were a decade ago.

cheers for clearing that up guys.. so really... has the hiphop forum game really changed?

the whole music industry and internet are different, social stuff plus a different landscape mean things just aint ever gonna be the same - even if good music did come out

1. Convert the  from Simple Machines to Vbulletin
2. Change the Nate Dogg section to a Dead Westcoast rappers section (pac, eazy e, mausberg, etc)
3. Make a section for pre 2000/2003 westcost rap (or change the nate dogg section into that)
4. Make the Sports section a main forum instead of a sub forum.
5. Merge the entertainment section with the g-spot.
6. Maybe merge the westcoast and outbound sections (maybe a split from new and old)
7. New forum themes.
8. Turn the elements section into a section where people can showcase there music, drawings, art, graphics, etc. Just an all around section for people to showcase shit at, and put it on the main page also.

some really good ideas there.. merging them with my current thinking  :)


1. not vb, but the new smf

2. I did agree, but just looked and there have been 4 posts in that section all year long so I suggest we roll the postsr into the new West Coast Classics (see 3)

3. Also been thinking about that too. and that it should apply to recordings made before then, so all the lost tapes/bootleg type stuff belongs there too  West Coast Classics

4 & 5 something needs doing for sure, maybe the g-spot should be more of a sports/entertainment chit chat lounge and less of a beef zone,. fresh start, fresh name?

6 nah, but i think with '3' happening we'd have zones for current west coast connetion, thw new "West Coast Classics" and Outbound for non-west coast/other types of music
that tidies up the music side of things nicely.

7 that's what one of the major hurdles is. i learned how to do it & had a migrate of the forum running the new smf in march, but the theme thing is what was holding it back.
(there will be a few surprises here, especially for the long term members)

8. yup like the idea of a general place for creatives/arty fartys :)


Current WIP layout..

(The Connection)
  West Coast Connection  (new section)
  West Coast Classics  (all releases and stuff recorded pre up in smoke tour?  last meal? restless? ) -> rename the main section as i'd bet theres more classic talk there than not!
  Outbound Connectons (all non west-coast and other genre's)
  The Vault
(Social thingy)
  VIP Lounge  the new g-spot / sports / train of thought
  Elements  - the new arty farty forum


- need name for the new g--spot/sports/entertainment forum  (not da sauce! haha)
- need name of the new creatives / arty farty forum
