Ok this has just gone too far. You guys remember a few months back, we had that poll to get rid of SM63 of SMF?

Well we may as well get rid of SMF altogether.

Look in the UML. There hasn't been a rate in three MONTHS besides from Kirby and Godzilla Tirebox (who is now inactive anyways). LR's aren't doing their job, no offense Zach, but you haven't made a single rate in more than 2 months.

Edit: The Levels Movers Group and the Level Raters group is another point I want to bring up. The Level Movers Group lives off of the activity of the UML. So when the UML is dead like it is now, it kills the point of even having the group, which means the group members (Kirby and Zach) have no job to do at all, making it a useless group. The Level Raters job is also to RATE LEVELS, but as you can see, the only level rater (Zach, not counting Seth) himself hasn't been very active in rating, and have you noticed that applications for LR rarely come in? Because nobody here is dedicated and wants to take the time to rate levels, because it's just not as fun anymore. Think about that. :|

Now when your looking in the UML you're probably thinking "What are you talking about? There's been about 20ish rates in the past month, that's not too bad!" WELL ACTUALLY LOOK AT THE FUCKING TOPICS. 90% of topics that have gotten a reply in the past 2-3 months have been bumps that apparently SS has spammed a bit in there, or by posts that don't have anything to do with rating the level. Really, this is pathetic.

Think about guys. People are getting bored of SMF. And guess what? It's not going to get anymore active than it is now. Unless we suddenly had a massive outbreak of members join that are dedicated to rating levels, which isn't going to happen.

So, deleting SMF might be the best option. However, that would leave us with no main game. I WOULD consider bringing back SM63 or SMBX, but do you guys remember how inactive they were? I personally myself prefer SM63 over SMBX and Super mario Flash. But apparently that's not the case for just about everyone here.

So, what do you guys think? Do you have any suggestions on new games we might be able to add to the fourm? (Don't say Electric Box, that brings back bad memories.) What do you propose we do in this situation?.

You bring up a good point. Anyway, my idea was that we could essentially become a discussion forum. Just have various sections for various topics and various games, etc. Forums based completely around games do not tend to last as long. :/

GLeDIT: Level Raters is a useless group anyway, we should all be rating levels. I said earlier that LMs have no reason to be there, since we don't really need to classify levels by rank.

Advertise this forum, of course. That's how you guys get members resulting in a more active UML. No offense, but I've seen some here advertising at pouetpu's site and their methods...need work. Another cause may be levels being too hard or too challenging (lol I've been here before). Redstar pointed this out, and I believe he's correct about it.

I don't think It's necessary to delete the entire UML altogether when there's still opportunity to improve and get more site traffic (not to mention how much pain the mods will haves sending every level code back to every person). Although I'll admit, it seems pretty futile at the moment to actually get our UML up and running like it did when the old sethforum started. GLaDOS's idea sounds pretty plausible, but then I'll be more at smfe for smf :/

Another idea would to just go back to smfe altogether as a big community under one roof...but that idea seems way too far away, as much as I personally want t for the good of all of us :s

I BLAME THE LM'S FOR THIS

OK... the LMs move levels.

LRs rate them...

And the other people, the people who post levels, can't post levels if they have 3 levels posted already.

So in order for the LMs to move those levels, the LRs have to rate them.

But if the LRs won't rate them, the LMs can't move them, since they aren't getting enough rates.

The GLMs (let's just call the people who post levels that for now, just cuz I'm lazy :vhappy: ) can't post levels until they get moved, so they rely on the LMs.

Everything is a cycle here. The GLMs rely on the LMs to move their levels, who rely on the LRs to rate the levels so they can move them, and the LRs rely on GLMs to post levels for them to rate... I have a bunch of levels waiting to be posted but since no one will rate mine, I can't post them D:

First off I didn't even look at any of the other topics in Update suggestions.

Second, stop acting like Im "stealing your topic". Who cares, if you're not going to say anything regarding what this topic is about, then don't say anything plz, that's just spamming.

umm guys...what about to stop fighting?


But yes...UML is too inactive, and not a single level has been moved since September. If this continues like this, I would support to delete the Level Movers and Level Raters.
