Well, I thought since RD has one of these the RC boards need one too. Any ideas of how we can keep this place active.

Uhhh, no... Before, it was the CCP keeping it going...

ya no i think the only threads keeping this place open is the "Karren Traviss talks..." thread and the "Republic Commando 2?" thread are the only two left keeping this place alive

CommanderQ

Yeah, it would seem that way, and it's always the same people commenting, keeping it alive...us and a few others. I'll start thinking on a possible lifesaver here....

good luck sounds good but its harder than you think not tryin to be pessimistic but the guys know its true ccp was basically our "cash crop" so to speak

Let's just let this board die. This is the first "new" thread in months. Might I add That RD is also Just about dead as well.

Not to mention, Devon...


How about some sort of contest? Like Best FanFic, or something like that.

RC-1183
12-06-2008, 09:17 PM
maybe a "Best 'Sevs Fate'" type of thing??

CommanderQ
12-07-2008, 12:03 AM
Yeah, that could probably spread the popularity of this forum, a competition would work well!!! We'd have to make it somehow more unique then the others, though. Something that could draw the people's attention to our forum. "Best Sev's Fate" is a good idea. Any others?

Da_man
12-07-2008, 12:16 AM
^: There's all of 4 people posting regularly, how would you get the word out? None of the admins are crazy enough to post an announcement about it. Who would vote on it anyway?

Hello. I'm new here. So, what's this place?

Da_man

This is the forum that si just about on it's deathbed. There was a thread called Custom Commando Project, which got locked because of general stupidity. The 2nd thread got locked too. Since then, all of 4 people have been posting regularly in these forums. The other threads besides the 3 that are being posted in are from 2 - 3 months ago. RD, the unofficial spam forum, was also on the verge of dying, so the regular posters set up a "Save RD" thread. But unlike RC, they actually have a history, so they were never on the verge of dying off to begin with, however, no one gives a crap about the RC forums.

There it is in a nutshell.

Man.....
So, what's the idea?

RC-1183
12-07-2008, 01:39 AM
the idea is that if we can bring some popularity back to the RC forums then we might be able to save this place as for an idea for getting the word out how about we post in the KotOR and Community Discussion forums get the word around like that.

any other ideas besides best "Sev's Fate" and the voting would take placelike this




Sev's Fate by RC-1183

[/POST]

then someone else would come along and read it and give it a grade on a 0-10 scale (0 being the worst 10 being the best) and an explanation for their rating.

If we come up with a couple more ode as, we could make a poll and see which one viewers want. I know some people (jmac, Devon, Wiggins) still lurk around here sometimes. Maybe we could have everyone come up with a custom commando, and have LiWar make them, or you Da_man if you still do it.

Of the fanfic idea. M@RS wrote a pretty cool one about Sev's fate a while ago. Plus CommanderQ, Da_man, and myself already have written fics, and I'm sure the others would like to try.

Da_man

Pass.

Just let the place die already.

It's hard when RC is my favorite game.

Rinku
12-07-2008, 01:27 PM
You all should start an online comic, or something for RC. I bet that might attract a few people if you put something in your sigs with link to the thread. (I am currently working on something for M@RS' Sev's fate fan fic, though it is taking a a long time).

LordOfTheFish
12-07-2008, 09:13 PM
Yeah, I saw that on the CCP forum, Link. Good stuff. If only I had artistic skill...

CommanderQ
12-07-2008, 09:58 PM
You know, I've been trying to make a cheap comic comedy of RC, something probably pretty ridiculous, but that's the case with comedy, comics are good. So, the idea of comics could somehow..promote the forum.

Ultimate Vader
12-07-2008, 10:51 PM
Hey, why don't we make the RC boards as a place for debating? Versus forum. Jedi or not, up to you. RC is about battle, right? We can make this place as a versus forum and ask the moderators to forbid other boards to make versus threads! I'm sure crazy as* people will come here to debate!

Da_man
12-07-2008, 10:54 PM
It's called Kavar's Corner in the KoTOR section. Just let the forum die in peace.

Ultimate Vader
12-07-2008, 10:56 PM
Kavar's corner is more of politic debate than "versus" debate.

Da_man
12-07-2008, 10:59 PM
There was a politic sub-forum for it. It's just full of politics because of the election, and the threads are still ongoing. Kavar's is just a general debate/serious forum, it just happens to be full of politic threads that haven't died off yet.

CommanderQ
12-07-2008, 11:00 PM
Yeah, the versus idea doesn't sound half bad, I'm for it anyways. It would definately be unique, but how would we go about making it? Rules and ways to post the versus threads?

Da_man
12-07-2008, 11:02 PM
I'm just going to stop posting in this thrad and let RC die off.

Ultimate Vader
12-07-2008, 11:15 PM
Well, I come up with that idea because of Kavar's Corner's reputation. It talks about politics everyday, and it's not my taste. I'm a SW fan, not a politician. Well, the only notable thread in there is HK-47 vs General Grievous, and it's not so interesting. Kinda spite IMO.

I just want to make a "real" versus forum here. Like some other sites. Those sites are really full of good debators and crazy debators. Tell me if you want to know about it.

@CQ: You should hook up with Padwon_Link. He's good at drawing RCs.

CommanderQ
12-08-2008, 04:02 PM
Sure thing, I'll probably go check that out with Padwon, this could work quite well.

Hey guys. I have been gone ever since the 2nd CCP thread died, so I just came to check the site and, to tell to truth, its kinda depressing to see what hasn't been going on. But it's good to see that somebody's trying.

Btw, now that I know that things are looking bad for the board, i'll try to log in every now-and-then and try to help out. And also if I can do anything just post on my wall or send me a PM. I should be able to respond faster that way.

M@RS
12-09-2008, 01:42 PM
Um, CCP is still kinda going, on another site... Click on my sig... :D

Rinku
12-09-2008, 03:20 PM
:lol: ...ya CCP is still going we just need more people to request.

Oh and would be willing to help out with the comic, but it might take awhile, but once I get done with a couple of things and get a certain program I will be able to work on the comic (and M@RS' fanfic :) ) easily :D

CommanderQ
12-09-2008, 03:39 PM
Yeah, the comic idea and the fan fic may do nicely for the forum. We may make it yet!:D I'll be working on concepts of commandoes for the time being, I may have an idea or two yet to pop out...

LordOfTheFish
12-09-2008, 04:26 PM
I would try, but I do not know how to get my work on the computer.

CommanderQ
12-09-2008, 04:31 PM
So you have a scanner? You could use that to get your stuff online.

Rinku
12-09-2008, 04:43 PM
Yeah, or get someone you know to scan it.

I'd rather let these boards die as I think Republic Commando is very important to Star Wars gaming, the only thing that can save these boards now is an official announcement of Republic Commando 2. The Star Wars Battlefront forums appear to be suffering as well, not as bad as RC though.

TSR

I know this is a rez, but wth.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but GeneralPloKoon is right. I've been away from the forums for a while, and looking over the threads it seems there's been no new discussion since last. Props for trying, but be sure to check that any new things you are going to do haven't been tried before. I'm not going to be one of these internet people that think quoting sayings from famous people makes me look cool, cryptic or whatever, but Einstein's definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over without change and expecting a different result.

As for the Battlefront forums, i don't think there's enough time in the world to count how many threads have been along the lines of either "What do you want battlefront 3 to be like" or "When is it going to be out?". As with RC, the only feasible way of the forums becoming active with success is with the release of a new game.

Peace out guys.
