Shit, I used the wrong profanity

And Iím not dating another forumer, either.

Yet.

How are you cretins all doing, anyway? The forum seems to have been a lot quieter recently than it usually is.

Not dating another forumer? PFF you're missing out.

It hasn't been that quiet around here lately, has it? I really haven't been paying much attention

Eh, I suppose so. The blog section has been relatively active though in comparison. Clearly, everyone's migrating since there isn't shit to talk about right now.

The forums have been quiet. My theory is that it's because we're still not showing up in Google searches, so we're not getting any new members. Seriously... we've had approximately one non-spambot new member in about three months.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to convince Peter to give me and Wil server passwords so that we can fix this shit without him, please let me know. It might be time for another fine coup.

I'm posting less because I only have 9 weeks of school left and there's a shittone to do after I've been so sick. I'm still not even that great, but I'm getting through it.

This blog is now about my health.

I was going to suggest we disguise Vyrien and have her act as bait while Nate and Wil go in for the kill

Is there actually a reason he doesn't just turn this place over to you guys? He's not even visiting this place anymore, let alone maintain it and all it does is cost him money for the domain and the webhost.

The topics of pedo and zoophilia seem to be the best way to stir up some activity around here

I vote for zoophilia, since that has worked really well in the past and the only person it really pisses off is OANST. Everyone wins.

I'm not sure, but I think pride and nostalgia. He can't bear the thought of not being a part of the forums any more, even if in practice he isn't at all. I suspect it's much the same reason as why he's kept Cloverfield as an owner all these years.

Surely he can give you guys the privileges you need while also keeping his own powers? He doesnít need to hand it over and then wash his hands of it or anything.

It probably takes a fairly long time for the search engine to re-index the site, even after itís been put back on the map.

Having the URL's rewritten for SEO purposes probably wouldn't hurt either.

The current URLs are a big mess. I'm not sure about 3.8, but recent vBulletin versions have the option to make the URLs a little more SEO friendly.

For instance this:

HTML Code:
http://www.oddworldforums.net/showthread.php?t=21092
would turn into this:

HTML Code:
http://www.oddworldforums.net/showthread/i-have-just-seen-iv-21092
Google jizzes all over that shit because it has keywords for the page (thread) in the URL itself.

Agreed. I came up with some pretty neat URI handling for TOE, although it was probably quite resource intensive, but it always made sure the address was human-readable. But good luck finding a CMS that does that in a way you like off the peg.
