I figured we might as well try.

Just so you know I haven't discussed this with anyone. I made an anonymous survey/poll with a few ideas, if you have any more ideas please comment. The poll is off-site so it can have more options/questions.
(The survey is only 5 questions, please take the time to answer it. :\)

Here's the survey link:
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FTMZZKH

I don't plan on taking any steps to redo the site until I know what people think of the idea.

*feels really awful* Gah, I have not been on the site at all lately. I'm sorry. I'd like to continue being on this site since it has so far gave me my best roleplaying experience.

Taking the survey. I come on this site every week or so, since no one is ever on anymore to talk too /:

Thanks everyone. :3 So far 8 people have taken it and there are a lot of suggested ideas. I really hadn't expected this much of a response.

'K. :3 I'm going to wait a few days before posting the results, if anyone strongly disagrees with the majority they can say something then.

OKAY so in the end, 10 people took the survey, which is more than I expected. :3 Sorry I haven't been posting, I had to build a bench. o.o

So most people would become active again, a few are not sure, no one said no. Which is good. I think we'll definitely have to delete a lot of inactive members, but it will be nice to have a good amount of older ones.

The layout was a little more close, but most people thought it should be redone. Someone brought up a contest mentioned in an earlier announcement here, and if there are enough people interested in entering I think that'd definitely help activity, as well as brighter colors in general for this site. :3 I could probably get a few people from CB to join and enter as well.

The staff members question, most people were pretty neutral, like maybe demote inactive staff and bumping up helpers and such.

Most thought we should restart the roleplay, someone brought up maybe archiving it which I personally think is a good idea, but there were a lot of different opinions here. :3

And for the other ideas. Of course we need more members so advertising is key, more roleplaying events like prophecies or Clan rivalries, and one person made a very good point: there aren't many rogues/loners or kittypets, and eventually they are pressured to join Clans, so we'll definitely need more non-Clan cats who are actively roleplayed.

Chances are we/I will redo the site based on these results, so if anyone disagrees strongly with something here please say so.
I'm actually feeling kind of motivated now so I'm going to start going through and deleting topics. :3

ALSO: If anyone wants to transfer their art to the Gallery, please do so- since we have one I don't think there's any need for the Artwork section, a Gallery is more efficient anyway. Eventually I will get around to deleting it, but everyone should have to chance to transfer their stuffs first.

Cool

Also, I have been trying to upload to the gallery, it says the pics need to be approved but it also says there is no moderator on the gallery. I posted when it 1st opened and my pics are still not showing up.

Oh sorry about that, I just changed the permissions so I think it should work, but I don't know if your older pics will upload. :I

Alright so a quick update on progress so far.

-Finished cleaning most topics, most were deleted. Role-play archives can be found at the bottom of the page. Only have to go through Character Creation section.
-Redid rules and user ranks.
-New Character-Related category, and new way of creating characters (separate topic per character)
-I think we should redo all characters and stuff, so I'm going to delete them tomorrow.
-Haven't gotten around to advertising.

So really all that's left is the layout. I'll message everyone and make a new announcement for it tomorrow, and will go ahead and start advertising after that.

Sorry this is all so sudden, I haven't discussed it with anyone or announced it really beforehand. :/
