I've noticed the forum is kind of decaying/dying and here are some things i thought could help it.

-Discuss.
Discuss, people. Post. A lot.
I'm talking specifically about the music forum (this is something the General Discussion is suffering a bit less). It really seems like no one here is interested in music unless it is related to TDH (not that it gets a lot of talking, anyway) It's crazy to see lots of threads for fantastic artists with no more than 10 replies, and usually most of them are made by the creator of the thread.
Try to listen to them, and post about it. You like it? Say it. You don't like it? Say it. Say why, discuss about it with other members. Don't be afraid to disagree with someone. We don't want to be lobotomized Flanders-lovers. No dogs will be released if you have different opinions. It's crazy that the most serious discussion that happened around here in the last months is the one in the nickelback thread.

-Watch that Treehouse of Horror Episode i mentioned. It will remind you of when The Simpsons was the best show in tv, and not complete shit like it has been in the last 14/16 years.

-Fight.
Fights are not necessarily a bad thing if done politely. Just don't be a child and start insulting the other person and his/her parents. "no hits below the belt"

-New layout. The TCS skin was the best thing about "old LATR". It screamed "WE'RE FUN! WE LOVE YOU AND THIS WEBSITE IS AWESOME!"
Now the IP.Board default is not "Fun!". It's not even "fun." like the awkward band. It looks more like:
-"uh...ugh, hi, i guess. this is a forum inspired by The Dear Hunter...right?"
-"...what? were you talking to me? I'm sorry, i fell asleep. I didn't care anyway... Where did i put my keys?"
(i have to admit the "sylo" skin is much cooler, though.)
We could just steal the header from tdh's "new" (lol) website, write "Lake and the River" instead of "The Dear Hunter", and change the color of the background.
A better skin makes people more interested in the website.

-Change the money system or remove it. It became useless, so we could find a way to use it, or not use it. The whole minibadges thing died when people discovered that you have to pay for them. I guess the world economical crisis makes you cheap when it comes to spacebucks too.

-(this is not really a problem, 'cause it's one of the things that still work about this forum) If you have ideas to help the forum or the band post them. Just like Kari, Scott and everyone else did with the shirt, Cal tried with the TDH game, Chris did with the Introduction thread and much more.

+Paul Rudd

-don't be obnoxious.

-More Eddie .gifs

I'm sure that we, working as a team or as individuals, could bring back LATR to it's best. (Even though, seeing how things go around here, a part of me is sure this thread will not be considered and die fast.)

It's hard to remember that forums exist, send me more emails about things and I might remember. I usually feel like I'm necroing a thread if I post in it so I don't post mostly.

I agree with Janky we should ditch the layout and make it unique. Maybe update LATR facebook a little more even advertise (as much as I don't like it.) On The Dear Hunter's page to show fans that we exist. That and for the artist inside some of you. Create LATR Banners. (Members vote which ones the best.) And need moar Casey.

Do weekly chatrooms/listening parties whatever you guys like to do. "Album of the Week" Chats.

I need to make this into sticker form and post it absolutely everywhere.

Love the idea of listening parties/album of the week stuff. This may go without saying, but users who just lurk need to try and participate. No use in signing up for a forum if you're going to just sit in silence, IMO? (Sorry, not trying to be a dick here ._.). I feel that chat could be used more instead of only when something big happens.

I unno, this is just what I've observed. I haven't been here long, but I know for a fact that the 'small town' feel of just a handful of us posting makes it feel like a ghost town at times.
I do dig the influx of new members with Migrant, though. Just hope most stay ;;

I miss the old tinychat with our webcams. I think it helped us bond in a more personal way.

I also think this forum lost a big piece of it's spirit when Tara left. She was like the glue.

I've tried getting some of the more interactive "game" threads up again (like arrows, story time, and scavenger hunt), but didn't get much response.

I am planning on making us a new LATR shirt, but need help to have them made. Scott was our shirt master last time.... Maybe someone new wants to take on that responsibility? We could even use the same company as last time because we know the shirts are well made.
