Under what circumstances would we ever get a new poster here?

I don't think it will ever happen again, especially since phpBB3 has no way to let people post, click on a link and register themselves without the board falling victim to spam.

What do YOU think needs to happen? Me not releasing a game for 6 years hasn't helped.

I have at least one friend that has played Cryptozookeeper who may be interested! Should I invite?

I brought a new guy in last year, but you all ran him off. Maybe if you started being nicer to the guests, they'd stick around longer.

But no, nobody new will ever come here. The last new guy we got was Billy, and, well, you know.

You get the two funniest and charismatic members here (AArdvark and Flack) to infiltrate a different forum. After they've made friends with a group of people they deem are a good fit for JC, you send pinback in to subvert the place causing AArdvark and Flack to extract the group from the ensuing chaos and bring them here.

So we're using Pinback's desire to drive off anyone that might have a meaningful con -- back the fuck up

Who was the new guy? Beef? Is that who you meant, Pinback?

Yes. The ol' Beefer. I have a naked picture of him if anyone wants it, BTW.

Oh, no thank you.

So now we have to headhunt for new posters?

Make a guest base and put that part up on Facebook

My original idea was going to be to rebrand JC as a hardcore man on man bdsm site but thought it was too dumb of an idea, but I guess that's back on the table now since we're entertaining Facebook as a solution.

Yes, but only if they don't chase you away like they did pinback's friend.

I would like to say something, if I may.

Was this thread about ironically "wanting" new posters and I missed that as well?

Yeah, my point is I shouldn't have to come back to Paul making a terrible set-up and then fucking up the punchline with his alt. No one should have to experience that.

I always thought that was pinback's alt he uses to mock Paul's alts, either way it's great to have you back!
