How do we bring W & F to the rest of the community?

I wish more people would discuss there views not the same people going around and around in circles. I'm not sure if the reason is because it's too daunting or they get jumped on (happened in last thread) if they are not with the same view point as the group that has posted or they just don't give too hoots. I just don't know.

It seems like it's just the same group of people that discuss everything and this same group has the say what goes on.

Someone mentioned that W & F has become busy; it hasn't really it just the same group. And occasionally ALTs come in, very rarely new players or players from other forums.

How do we bring W & F to the rest of the community?

By not making thread topics known to be at odds with the community's interests, for starters. "Revenge...is like a rolling stone, which, when a man hath forced up a hill, will return upon him with a greater violence, and break those bones whose sinews gave it motion."- Jeremy Taylor

Also - it's probably those same few people posting in various subsections because there's so few little of us who are passionate about the forums. We're especially posting a lot in W&F because this is where discussion of potential forum updates/ideas are happening. We like using the forums, so we want to have a say/provide our opinion for things that could affect how we use the forums in the future.

All we are doing is providing feedback to your threads - which you choose to ignore because it's feedback you don't want to see due to disagreeing with your idea.

A lot of people might not also want to venture to other subsections because they have a lot of friends, people they know posting or just have an interest in one area/topic. I used to be like that - where the first 3 years of my foruming was nowhere but in the Minigames and D&Ds subsection. Some people don't want to leave their comfort zones.

I never said they were invalid, and I'm not making it personal.

I'm saying over the last few threads, your ideas have been ideas that have been known to been met with extremely staunch opposition, so maybe you should take a step back and think "Hmm...Why do people not agree with my threads?"

Hint: It has to do with the merits of your proposals.

You don't know that, my ideas are just as valid as everyone else's and just as good an idea. So please don't make it personal.

Not enough players come in to judge the outcome.
Of course. Any idea, no matter what it's about is always valid, but it might not be a good idea. That's for everyone else to figure out and provide feedback on, which is why we've been doing.

First I have to say Jagex / JMods still do a very good job, as much as possible, to bring News to The RuneScape Community, whether it will be brought up right here or through different channels, The RSOF & RuneScape Website do a good job and players will find their source in the end.
Doing such a good job makes Websites & Forums a bit quiter. Why should you insist discussing things that work properly?
There is no group in Website & Forums that says what goes on or what not.
Yes, Website & Forums have become more busy because a lot of other information is asked here because players also get a good answer in here or will be directed to the proper location a player is asking for. Not everybody in here is ready or does want to start a discussion with you.
Quite frankly, a lot of new players did find Website & Forums throughout the years but you are not interested in them at that same moment.
I've been here since Website Feedback & Forum Feedback were still seperate Forums and it still does do a wondefull job but you ain't paying attention to it at that same moments.

^ This, essentially.

W&F is not a chit-chat sort of forum, it's where people come who have a serious idea about changing the way the website or forums look/function. Or if something needs fixing.

I doubt that many people spend their time thinking about such matters, or have instances where something on the website or forums seems 'off' to them and prompts them to actually make a suggestion thread. Hence this has always been a slow'ish forum.

Most people just get on with playing the game and having fun.

This forum does not need showcasing just for the sake of it; if no one has an idea, then no one has an idea. If people can't see anything broken or failing then they are unlikely to visit.
