Otaku Network Moving Forward

14 Apr 2014

Posted by Mura in Otaku Network

So, Aron is marginally back and we have a few plans for the site, but I'm personally a bit uncomfortable moving forward with the current state of the site. As such, I shall be clear as to our current (tentative) plans for the site.

As I have discussed before, I am very concerned of the lack of direction of the site, as well as the lack of enthusiasm from our members. As a site, we are basically just a forum, with mostly RPer members. I would like to make some improvements for the RP section, if I can coax and or bludgeon an actual opinion out of one of them <_<

I would like to seperate the RP section from the rest of the forum, simply because of the activity. I believe that with a seperate section it would be much easier for people to keep track of their RPs, while at the same time make it easier for people who don't RP to keep track of what little is actually going on in the rest of the forum. For the time being, it would basically be exactly the same as it is now, but instead of the RP forums being towards the bottom of the forum, they would be under their own tab.


But ultimately, I would rather not have the site be based around RPing, if only because I personally have very little interest or experience in it. So, for that reason, I believe we need some new things on the site. For that, I currently have two directions in mind which we could take.

The first would be a play on a personal interest in mine that I have tried to promote around the site, namely the creation of original content. In order to further this, we would need to improve the album, the blog section slightly, and I would even like to include some sort of sound uploading system possibly.

The second would be a somewhat similar idea, but focusing on anime and manga. With this path, we would have a database of anime/manga series, with a description and such. But instead of links to places where you can watch or read them, instead this database would lead to fan art and fanfictions for them.

Of course, neither of these ideas are all that fleshed out, nor are they mutually exlusive. But without any input from you people, this is the direction I plan to try and take us.

Of course, the biggest problem with both of these ideas is that they rely heavily on user activity...something we don't see a lot of these days...but I shall take the chances >.>

Anyways, opinions or ideas for the site welcome, here or in the Suggestions forum. Which does still exist, you know............you didn't know, did you? >.> Bleagh

Game Night

28 Mar 2014

Posted by Mura in Otaku Network

Mwaha, actual site information. Although really, some random crap like the last post isn't bad every now and then, right? D:

 

Anywho, we're gonna try to bring back game night, and figure out the best times to have them at, what games to play, etc.

 

So far, we've usually had Game Night on Fridays (GMT -5, my timezone). Times can really be moved, but I'd like to keep it sometime in the evening, possibly on Saturdays instead.

 

As far as games, so far we've been playing either Board Game or Cards Against Humanity. Both games are simple, browser based, and...a tad perverted >.> Although that of course is dependant on the players, ie all of you perverts. Anyways, it would be preferable that any other game we play is somewhat similar. At the very least, it has to be a free, online PC game. I'd like to stay away from MMOs, as most of the people who tend to participate have crappy computers/internet and can barely play simple browser games >.>

 

Anyways, short of protest, Game Night shall be on Fridays at...idk, 9pmish? I'll put up a poll for game options later, once I find some other ones. I know Transformice was suggested once...that game is kinda meh though...if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to suggest some ._.b
