 The Future of This Site

I've been thinking about the future of this site lately. Two things stick out to me the most.

1. Decreased Participation. After having decent participation the first couple of years, the site has slowed down quite a bit. We have maybe a dozen regulars tops. Wrestling's popularity in general is down.

2. No administator. When Camaro made me a moderator a couple years ago, I had no idea he was going to abandon the site shortly afterwards. As a moderator only, I also have a limited scope on what I can do. It would have been nice to get administrative powers from Camaro, but he doesn't respond to e-mails I send him.

I'm thinking about putting the kibosh on the site after this season's predictions league is over sometime in February. I guess people could still post on this site if they really want to since there is no way to officially end it, but you get the drift. I might talk to one of the mods at he-man.org about me bringing the predictions league back there. It was originally pulled from there to get more people over to this site. This site was created because of complaints that there were too many wrestling threads over at he-man.org. With wrestling's popularity down, I don't think that is much of a problem anymore.

Thoughts? Comments? Opinions?

I enjoy the prediction threads and you provide info about wrestlers getting released which is nice to know. Whatever happens happens I guess. I still never understood what He-Man.org's problem was, I didn't think there was ever that many wrestling threads there. They just needed something to complain about I guess.

I hope the predictions league will continue in some form, whether it's here or at He-Man.Org. I still think it's fun.

If there is enough interest in the site continuing, I may keep running this site. I do think we need some more participation, though. We don't really gain any new members while losing a few each year. Most of the regulars we do have don't participate near as much in threads either.

Maybe starting a new one could be a solution. Would have more control that way and probably easier to attract new members to a new site than an older one with dwindling membership

Yeah it will be a shame to see this place go. I agree that there doesn't seem to be too much activity here though other than once a month for the prediction league. As the poster above said perhaps it would be a good idea for someone to start a new forum should this one die out next year.

A new forum might not be a bad idea, but I know nothing about creating a new forum from scratch (ie: creating graphics, skins, and such). I'd probably want to share co-administrator duties with someone more tech savy than me if that were to happen rather than try to tackle it by myself. I don't really know anyone like that though unless it is a member already here. Although a new site would make the administrating easier, I'm not sure that would do a large amount to bring up participation. I might still keep the predictions league going here for another year and/or attempt to bring it back to he-man.org. I haven't decided definitively on that yet.

I'll keep the predictions league going on here for another year, although I would like to see some increased participation.

Seeing how the participation on this site is worse than even last year, Camaro is still ignoring my messages to him, and things have been busier for me lately, I'm going to quit running the predictions league after this season is over with the Feb. 2013 pay-per-view.
