Of course, its me bbricksproduction (Better Bricks Production)I am still a noob to this site and for people who dont know what a noob is than maybe you are (Just kidding, didnt mean to offend :P ) Anyway, to the point, i have looked at the government forum or elections and it is dated back to 2007 the only sort of “new” forum is from february 2009.If the site is dieing as i been hearing, maybe we need to host the elections again or try to get some more canidates.Maybe if the site managers would put up a daily notice on the front webpage like saying:
Dont forget to vote!Would influence voting.Also, it should be a Democracy! So incase the dually elected officials of brickfilms.com are slacking a bit of productions we need IMpeachment.OR we will need more people to be elected.PLUS, it would be nice to have small meetings or so, as long as we put up a notice board on the homepage.ALSO i tried clicking the chat button BUT it doesnt work so BROKEN LINK! If im missing any information or anyone would suggest the PLEASE POST!!! :mrgreen:

Ministers have been removed. I may do something about it myself, though it would kinda be a dictatorship rather than a democracy then.

I want to focus on TLMP first and foremost though.

As a former-admin, I know that nothing you suggested will work. Here’s why.

If the site is dieing as i been hearing, maybe we need to host the elections again or try to get some more canidates.

Elections failed miserably in the past. People would get elected, and did nothing. Also, as the site is practically a graveyard, there’s no need for anymore than a few mods and admins.

So incase the dually elected officials of brickfilms.com are slacking a bit of productions we need IMpeachment.OR we will need more people to be elected.

Impeachment, again, is not a good idea. If, say, The Doctor were to be impeached, who would replace him? There’s nobody qualified. The Doctor and I are virtually the only people here that have been here over a year and would be able to take the task on. And we were here a good couple of years before ever being put in any kind of position. Nobody else on the site has proved that they would be able to handle a position like moderator or admin.

ALSO i tried clicking the chat button BUT it doesnt work so BROKEN LINK!

It works fine for me. Try a different browser.

I appreciate your enthusiasm, but none of that is going to save the site.

You want to help save the site? Post more, encourage others to post more, bring people to the site, be mature, use proper grammar and spelling, encourage others to use proper grammar and spelling, make films, and write tutorials.

That’s the only way the community members can improve the site. Everything else lies with the developers and owners, and they have repeatedly proven to us that they have no interest in helping the site.

EDIT: And Doc, a dictatorship would be fine with me. This site doesn’t need a democracy, it needs good leadership with leaders willing to improve the site.

yes i see both of you guys’ points. hmm, i was thinking…the whole reasoni got started over at BiM was because of the STAR contest, now if we were to host contests a bit more maybe that could help the site a little! i am not saying to go as elaborate as BiM has gotten (especially with the prizes it has for 2010!!) but just to start out with some more small animation contests to encourage more people to make more movies. and another thing is…the whole point of this site is to teach people how to make better movies thus to enhance the wonderful art of brickfilming! so all we really need is a small group of people to come here on a regular basis to update things like the tutorials and such rather than people who just come here to critize and remind you of the rules of conduct, example: there are quite a few people that never get their questions answered just because they double posted or had terrible grammar or posted a too big picture and the only response they get is: don’t double post, don’t bump the old threads, pictures need to be smaller, use better grammar etc. instead we need some ppl who are willing to take the time to come along side newbies and help them out, and the more we help others the more they will want to help out with the site!

P.S i think the biggest issue that is somewhat overlooked is…time!

true i feel that too, but then i remember what is common sense? things that everyone knows. and some people have sense it’s just not the common type and some have no sense at all and those are a hopeless mess. so my answer to common sense is…wikipedia! :D

yes, i guess you are right (as it should be seeing as you are an admin and i am not…oh darn thats right you resigned, well still you were an admin so it is good that you are right!)

P.S if you hadn’t noticed i am in a rambling mood today

From what you all have been posting and please point out if im off topic, is that the sites popularity is at its lowest.Well, most animators are based on youtube or viddler.Youtube allows for video responses so maybe if one of us makes a video about brickfilms.com it would persuade young and new animators to join.Also, about helping the newbies i would be willing to stick around and help a few of them.Another thing, i have a friend on youtube who saw my films and actually wants to try stopmotion so he is gonna try doing animation tests.I could probably convince him.Again if we make sort of an introductory video it could bring some interest and if we made a facebook page for the site (If we dont already have one) It would help because i just made a facebook for my films last week.

you have some good publicity ideas there bbricks! but sadly most of them have been done ie. the facebook group, there already is one, i haven’t joined because facebook is my personal page and has things i do not disclose with everyone but maybe you should check it out! that is great that your friends are showing interest in brickfilming and i hope they find it to be the enjoying activity that it is! i think your video idea about brickfilms would be pretty nice, and as the doc has said the TLMP will do a lot of that, but if you want to be in charge of something like that, then by all means i see it as a worthy cause of my time.

Delete everything, and start from the beginning. It is the only way…

We can start the site again from the beginning. The only thing we need is A administrator.
