I'm terribly bored and the FFMD threads grow more and more frustrating (talking about the bitching in the GM Draft Forum) - so I had a look at the Forum Intro thread. Funny when you hit some names you remember well - but didn't notice they are not around any more.

Quite a lot of the oldtimers are still around, checking in every now and then (Yes, I see you!) but not posting anything.

More concerning: VERY few (read: NO!!) recent entries - and those logging in didn't stick.

Does anyone have a clue how to attract a few new members to the board? I dropped links at KC Live chats several times, but obviously no response.

Guess we need some fresh blood - otherwise this will become a three man show pretty soon.

I'm sure as we get closer to the draft activity will pick up. But new blood wouldn't be a bad thing.

The consistency of the posters is why I joined back in the day. This is IMO the best team forum on FF, and we need to keep it that way.

Amen brother! I took a break from the forum for a variety of reasons, since I have been back it has been pretty disappointing. Not much activity, especially from the top of the pecking order.

1. sometimes it's just RL.

Other potential issues

1. To many threads get closed. In some cases its the, post here not there stuff, or who knows why. Can't post x story, only links bla bla bla. The forum rules in some cases are the problem.

2. Everyones opinions are not valued or the persons posting do not feel valued. A lot of people post or reply on threads but are never replyed to.

3. To many people tend to play favorites like we are in Highschool all over again.

4. Hall of fame, nothing against the oldschool, but when most of the current posters have no clue who just got elected, that's a problem. In hindsight maybe the hall of fame was a bad idea? Not saying it is just not sure about it.

5. Guys look I like the ladies and all but, what if I am at home with my wife, kids, at work? I have complained about this and it never changed a dang thing. You want it to be about football and nothing else, so If i post about GOD, OMG better put the brakes on that.. But if every other member posts soft Porn that's ok Or the Fatman Dracula, Grow up! That crap alone can be the reason people quit the forum. You cannot choose to play moderator like its a buffet.

Possible fixes

1. Moderators that do more then moderate, socialize a bit kind of like a manager at a restraunt. It would be helpful if other members on the boards try to help out.

2. Link up with arrowhead pride or other good chiefs resource for advertisment.

3. see #5 above.

Honestly it's not just this forum. FF, while I still thoroughly enjoy, has alot more garbage posts than it used too.


No one, well most, wants to read through trash to get to discussions.

Don't get me wrong this is still the best site for talking football, but the quality has gone down in recent years. Wish I could go back to not posting at all, just reading. Get bored and end up posting now.

I've been lurking a few months, decided to log in. Any chance you can shoot me a PM so I can take part in this? I need a crash course.

Welcome to the club.

So what do you need to know?
Just read, think, respond, learn. When I joined I knew hardly anything about football other than that the helmet generally is on the head, the cleats on the feet.

If you read a little bit in FFMD - that's a FF-wide mock draft, an annualevent to kick of the new season.

May be a good thing to start there if you like to contribute ...
