Lets have it, I've had a rough time pre Xmas and sadly drifted thanks to shit hitting said fan. Things are all settled now and I'm back to normal. Id like to hear your ideas for this site and what else we can do to keep us all active.

Also if anything has happened please feel free to catch me up and am I once again the last staffer standing? (Im sure Muggy is still here with me!)

Also just like to say it was nice to come back to seeing MS so busy, it's busier now than it was last year!

My only idea at this moment is to restore the registration so we can gain more users. I guess it won't work without Chris' help. Any news from him?

I have literally just messaged him on Facebook about it. Hoping he will pop on and sort it out, the idea was all well and good but last time I spoke with chris he agreed it's doing more harm than good.

If said bots become a problem again a group can always be set up with the task of deleting spam threads and bots or something alike.

Okay I have a suggestion....

What if we had this forum and treated like a WIKI with approved editors (pretty much what we have now,) and set up a secondary forum or blog for discussion

and then put a link to it from the home page. We could even use a hosted service like blogspot or word press. That way it doesn't collide and cause problems with Chris' hosting


Hmmm gonna try something

I think that Mafiascene also needs much more content, especially in download categories which are looking miserable now.

We did have a wikia, a knowledge base is a fantastic idea if we can get it in some form with writers and yes the downloads are looking pretty bad.
We need one or two people to be dedicated to filling it up and sourcing all the mods we lost to get it looking full once again.

Yes, I definitely agree about downloads. We should upload much more content. Also, I agree that the registration must be restored in order not to put off possible community contributors, despite the bots we might encounter. That's my opinion Smile

I think that I can do that, if you want of course. I can try get some permissions from the authors for uploading their Mafia I & II mods here.

I remember that the photo gallery was very huge before. I think it's impossible to gather all lost pictures, especially from beta. But anyway, it would be nice to see more pictures in the gallery.

Your help would be really appreciated PITEK and we really need to drive members to upload to the gallery. Something like a return of image of the week or competitions and bank note rewards. Thinking
