Why exactly are you so desperate to raise the activity level in this forum?

I wouldn't mind seeing more activity in the Dune 2000 forum.

The dune 2 forum seems to get more activity already.

This website is a game forum from origin right? These days I mostly see activity in politic and general forum...

Umm, activity is the lifeblood of forums. Before January this year we were getting so little activity that we were afraid the forum was dying. Now it is much, much better, and we want to make sure the activity continues. We love the FED2k community and we want it to be around for many years to come. :)

That's true, we started out as a Dune strategy game forum. But there hasn't been a new Dune strategy game in 7 years... That's why people don't talk about the games as much as they used to.

If Battle for Dune is released as a standalone game, then perhaps we could have a board for it?

That'll be nice. Would it beat the Emperor forums, however?

Not like it matters anyway.

I don't know, it was just a suggestion really, it isn't up to me.  Anyway, I have been a little slack in sending out the messages recently, but I will post the message to every member who signed up in the last two weeks soon.

Lazy hooligans  ;D Perhaps we should involve threats of personal harm (but exaggerated to be an attempt at humor).

Or invoke them in this thread using their username and maybe they'll be compelled to post  ;)

hey there , I'm vlad , I'm new here :)

When I was wandering around, I've seen a link to a Dune2000 website.. it linked to the news page.. and when I've seen the date of the latest news topic.. I couldn't believe my eyes that it was so recent, And when I heard there are mods being developed with the Dune theme , I was even more shocked :)

the post was sent to the dungeon. Once sent there it take a post away from post count. And if brought back from dungeon you do not get the post count back for that post.

Hm, wonder if it would break the forum to send it through the dungeon again and leave poor Vlad with -1 posts.

Curiosity killed the forum.  I'm glad my recent news posts has shown someone we're still alive.

I see that's this season's trend in welcoming newcomers.

But seriously, why?

He may have decided that he didn't want to be a part of the forum and deleted it himself. It's a plausible idea considering he hasn't posted since this was deleted.

That's quite sad. For a moment, it really seemed as if he were here for one purpose and, having fulfilled that, decided to leave.

So if you delete your own post, it goes to the Dungeon? I didn't know that.

I've just witnessed possibly the most impressive lurking ever, although I'm not too sure it counts.  Mast3r-Bop, the forum's 3rd oldest member (excluding deleted accounts), who made one post in the year 2000, has returned and made a new account, to post once.

I vote to give both his accounts the custom title of "Master of all Lurkers". He might see it when he comes back to make another post in 2016.
