Zelaron needs an overhaul
Reply
Posted 2012-03-08, 05:08 PM
I got bored so I thought of some suggestions. Looking for input.

Forum News, Suggestions and Discussion
- Get rid of New World Order

Introduce Yourself
- Rename to Member Introductions

The Symposium
- Rename to General Discussion. Merge all the subforums

Science and Art
- Merge the sub forums. With current activity there is no need for individual forums for news, tech, and math help.

New Forum Suggestion
- Anime and Manga. Bring it back please. There is a decent sized fanbase I'm willing to spend time to bring new content to it.

Flame Forum
- Keep the same.

Video Games
- Change to General Gaming. This will allow people to post about anything from pokemon cards, magic the gathering, or monopoly along the posts about Skyrim and any other games out there.

Diablo Series
- Merge all the forums. A sticky can be made of all important topics like d2 bot info and such.

Starcraft Forums
- Probably wont be very active, but If we post news about the upcoming second expansion to starcraft 2 we can get some new signups.

World of Warcraft Forums
- Split into Discussion Forum and Maybe an Auction House. Have an option for people to sign up to use zelaron as their guild forum hosting.

Call of duty forums!!!

Change the name of the forums from "Zelaron Gaming Network" to "Zelaron Gaming Forums"

I can do SEO for us for free if you want.

________________________________________________

I just did an analysis for SEO on Zelaron, and it's fucking terrible. No wonder we're not getting any good traffic or new members.

For the least part, change the SERP title and description from:

Zelaron
This is a cool place to hang out and talk about computers, computer games, and life


To:

Zelaron Gaming Forums
Zelaron Gaming Forums is one of the best forums for video games, computer games, and any other gaming discussion.


Since this is a gaming forum, we're trying to target the "Gaming Forums" keyword. When someone searches "gaming forums" on Google, Yahoo, etc. Zelaron will not show up AT ALL because the keyword is no where to be found in the SERP title or description the way it is now.

I'm pretty sure if you change just that we'll see alot more people in here, this forum is aged and shouldn't have a problem with popping up within the Top 10 results for that search phrase.

I'll write up some more tips later. I'm at work right now.

We need an active admin to even begin doing all of this, alas, and whilst Chruser and WW visit most days, I get the impression that they only drop by to check on things.

Either way, though, a bit of a refresh may do some good for a while. Disturb the mud at the bottom of the pond, as it were, which should give us some activity before everything settles again.

I certainly don't have time. I barely keep up with my studies. This semester is brutal.

This would be an easy way to keep me out of regular conversation. I would spend soooo much time here, just giving reviews.

What about during the summer?

How hard would it be to make these changes? Do you need to rewrite the code of the website or does vbulletin have some easy forum creator sort of thing.

There's a forum manager in the Mod CP. Whilst we can see it as SupMods, the only thing we can use it for is to post announcements at the top of each forum.

Creating and nameing forums is easy enough; merging forums is a bit more work. Mostly I meant I don't have time to actually manage the forum.

I agree. I pretty much already consider them admins, anyway, personally.

I think we should make everyone but Skurai an admin.
D3V: I need to get on zelaron more. I'm having withdrawls.
Skurai: You should be used to withdrawls by now, D3V.

I still say make him mod of the trash can, but make it the only forum he can see. We can start calling him Oscar.

Oscar? What?
And all honesty, I wouldn't mind being a mod in the lounge. It's pretty much the only place I post, anyway.

Alright here's a few things I'd like to add


-Thumbs up/Thumbs down of each individual post/reply

-Integration of Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, etc etc (sharing of stories more easily/integrated)

-Fix the YouTube posting method.

-Delete unnecessary forums (you mentioned most of them)

-Zelaron mobile site? -Future members would want easy access. This site has been around for 10 years and hasn't really changed at all. Good/bad?

-Revamp the entire portal. The idea is fantastic, the implementation is soft though.
After we get a few more ideas from whatever active members we have, this thread will get unlocked for discussion.

Just a heads up, any spam or bullshit posts will get a minimum 72 hour ban.
