Should I leave this site die?
« on: April 15, 2006, 01:32:00 am »
No one seems to care anymore about Omnimaga now, most staff post less often and every day the post rate decrease by 2-30 at least every day. Plus now ppl post their projects then leave. Ranman decided to post on TIFW instead of Omni as well. What should I do?

Should I wait until easter break ends and see what happens?
Should I leave the site die right now?

I am supposed to hire new staff soon and necro seems to want a programming contest but I see no point in continuing running it if no one is gonna be interested in it anymore. Any ideas? If I close it I will prbly be gone for good from the community, as Omnimaga is the only thing holding me here atm, as well as a few other ppl I like

Don't leave, omnimaga has become my home! Just take a look at my sig. :)smile.gif
And yes, the people-not-posting is probably a mixture of the time of year and not knowing if omnimaga is still there after recent events, so they don't look.
I've been here every day since Omni v3 was born. Most of you have probably noticed my name on the online list most of the time. I'm not leaving anytime soon.

Just give it some time. In two or three weeks posts will go up again.
One of these days I'll get a sig I'm really proud of.

Look man no offense but you closed this thing ten times by now and deleted it once. If this is the way you like playing with it then so be it, but please make it a private board and don't let people register for nothing, and invest their time in a community that will likely disappear sooner than they can blink. I'm sorry if I sound angry, but if you close the board now, for no valid reason, I will never register here again, ever.

Of course you get few posts for now, lots of people left because they thought it was gone for good the first time you deleted it. Most of them will slowly return, just give them time, and new members will come along as well. I update my projects exclusively here and on my own site, and so do plenty of other programmers. You simply can't expect Omnimaga to return to its old traffic status in only a week, this will take months.

Just to avoid confusion, I will continue to post here and update my projects on Omnimaga.

Meh. Statistics are nice to have, but don't go over them daily and think posts == life.
Sometimes I post and sometimes I do not, but I do read threads. If all you care about is the posts on the site I think you are having the wrong thoughts. Instead you should try to care about the projects and work that is being done here!

Man, you're always thinking about everything so hastily. Just wait a while, a month, and see what happens. People are busy or on vacation, so maybe that's why. Just RELAX.

I silently read, I've never been much of a poster here.  But upon request, I'll do more.  :)smile.gif

I have not felt the need to post in all the topics, hence why some of it is not goining, and my lack of posts here (for some reason, I love spam here)

Yes, I log on every day and read almost every new post (excluding some projects, cuz I don't have time).  Do I post?  Nope, it's just kinda how I am.  When I think of something, I post it.  Just wait.

Hey, I just posted a whole new topic in the gtavocado forum. I don't post much, but that's just 'cause I don't post a lot. :oohmy.gif

crap I wish I didnt forgot to mention here that by letting die Omnimaga I meant leaving and stopping posting. actually I meant if it started dying I would prbly do like EPS, stop posting as well, and let the remaining staff run the site until they quit as well, and not hire anyone else. I understand ppl who though I was meaning closing the site again though, with all that happened. Sorry for being rude

which is why I have other admins, if I disapear for whatever reason (it could be anything, maybe in 2 years I could lose interest in calcs, or something could happen to me, we never know what might happen) at least someone would be able to pick up the site again, and considering we are almost like TCPA in term of amount of staff it would take a long while before it died I think.

I dunno maybe I am not done for running a community, not sure, maybe I should stick to Omnimaga, and not even bother read the other websites at all. Most maxcoderz staff only visit maxcoderz, most UTI staff only visit UTI, most cemetech staff who are not staff elsewhere only visit cemetech. I think its just because of whats happening outside Omnimaga, and the fact I am different from other people here in some way, mostly by my thinkings and my way of acting
