what is mabb for

Postby horse dealies » 08 May 2017, 02:59

a few years ago we all more or less agreed that mabb needed an infusion of new members & possibly a new approach. and luke took the reins and launched a new board, and the biggest difference is that it wasn't based on phpbb :redneck:

now we have another new mabb, back to phpbb style :xx: though we've lost two old friends :greenie: :fuckoff: :tear: and also a shit-ton of members over just the last few years. i haven't counted or anything but i'd say the number of members who post regularly or semi-regularly is at most half of what it was before 4.0

so the question remains:

1) does mabb need an overall new approach, perhaps more metal in general and less morbid angel specifically
2) does sard rule the day and who cares and we all get along fine and will chat together about beer and metal and the gloryhole era until the coming apocalypse, &c &c
3) something else

bear in mind i am pretty much fine with option 2, though i do miss all of the old guard and would like to see some regular new non-chilean troll-ish members come in and stick around

and yes i am aware that a new mabb album later this year will likely result in a temporary traffic uptick. but my questions are more long-term than that

discuss :santa:

definitely less morbid anal. traffic needs to pick up. this place as been boring as fuck for a good while now.

while i am usually one for keeping things for the same for fear of change, this board could certainly use an overhaul

for sure needs way more *(josh's preferred insult here) voice* 'gina

the problem is that forums just aren't as popular as they used to be. these days most people are talking in facebook groups, group chats, twitter, instagram, reddit, etc. also lets not forget morbid angel isn't exactly what the metal kids are listening to lately.

Keep in mind a few things before you change the focus:

1) More of us have gotten busy. We've grown up, gotten jobs, gotten marri.ed, had kids. Not that much free time. I just can't post from work, using my work laptop. So that's at least 10 hours in the day I can't post freely (see point 4, unless mabb was a smartphone app, that would rock). And when I get home, I just want to eat and sleep. Changing the focus of the board from morbid angel to something else will not change this fact.

2) The decline in activity is not all a bad thing because we post less emo-trees and santas and actually make an effort to make posts matter. We had to grow out of post-whoring some day you know.

3) The Facebook argument is valid, HOWEVER, I don't use Facebook a lot. Infact, I deactivated it recently because of inactivity.

4) I WOULD use MABB more if the damn thing worked on my smartphone. When I enter in my credentials through my phone, it doesn't log me in. So, SOMEHOW if mabb worked better with smartphones, made it easier to post, I would post a heck of a lot more. I could post while at work.

5) We should not change the Morbid Angel focus of the board. That would be a disaster.

If I had to pick one point worth emphasizing it would be point 4. Make the board work better with smartphones and heck yea that'll be awesome to post then.

Only issue I have with posting from a smartphone is that it won't keep me logged in but I think that is more of a memory issue (it does this on a lot of sites that require logins and it's especially annoying when you open another tab to copy and paste something and then go back to the original tab - it auto refreshes the page and logs you out).

hmm

mabb works like a sexy orifice on my smartphone and now i do most of my posting on it

as for what mabb is for...

i feel like going back to phpbb was in sone ways a conservative and nostalgic move, now things are the same as 2002 again, a fact which we all like to some degree because we are getting old etc. but at the same time new members would be good and they ain't gonna phpbb it unless they are also 30+ and new MA fans or something

we could radically overhaul everything and become a more general metal community, this is possible and i have mooted it before
more metal

if this is something you want to do, i don't think the best course of action would be to re-brand and relaunch mabb. why not just start something new, it's not like the 10 of us wouldn't be able to migrate over to that. all i'm saying is that i don't see any reason to change what mabb is right now.

are people really like "oh hey morbid angel fans, oh wait it's a message board eww nevermind"

or is it just that this is a web site and now everyone uses apps (which are pretty much just individualized web browsers and thus less efficient, but that's a fight for another day)

OK let me take back what I said partially about this on smartphone.

You HAVE to check "remember my login" when you're signing on. This is what I just did and that works.

Well, thanks for mentioning me in the OP. Surely this community isn't what an outsider expects because of the regular idiotic onanists jerking to each other; which is basically MABB's entire population with the obvious exception of yours truly. You just pretend it to be cool, but it is not.

I'm only here because of the Chapel, btw.

I get why people have a look at this place and see nothing worth replying to. There are alot of strange threads/thread names that would make no sense to them at all. Random chit chat that might aswell not be turned into a thread ect. The Chapel used to be wayyyyy better once upon a time. I found so much MA shit in there and it was the reason I joined, the bands output has no doubt played a major role in lack of new posters.

In conclusion: We really need more world class threads from me tbh.
