Sprucing up this board



It seems like our corner of the Rant is slowing down. We're at 10/14 as far as activity in Team Forums with only UT, UF, UK and Vandy going worse. What can we do to add some activity?

Not much we can do.

Added mixture of the offseason + lack of members means dead periods.

We need a board "shtick" that's unique to us. Think Hunger Games on the UGA board, though not that extravagant. It may or may not help, but it's something.

I agree to an extent, but I can be hit or miss when I am business traveling. Otherwise I have this site up all day while at work.


Don't start many threads, but I will always converse in any interesting topic.

Pretty much everyone that request access gets it. It's not a whole lot, and those non-SC fans that do have access don't post here much.

Hard to get to critical mass

You need about 25 - 50 posters to get a dozen or o daily which seems to be a point of critical mass. UGA is different because it was a UGA board first. After UGA, hard to get any volume in the east schools.

I think that's a lot of it. I'll post through out the day on the Rant and OTB but I click on our forum and rarely see anything I want in on. I don't know, Cheese Grits might be right. UGA is a unique case, for the most part this is an SECW site.

No uga players arrested lately.


Be patient.... It's a long summer and some shite will go down, and the board will pick back up.

Also, draft is coming, the clowney talk will pick things up a bit too.


Thirdly, having your best posters getting banned all the time hurts.

Getting deeprig of this board would spruce it up A LOT.

An addition by subtraction kinda thing.

Why is this? Cocks have some solid posters but as a school they do seem to have a high proportion that get the tim out corner?

If I had to guess, it's 'cause of the racism... Persecuting us because our Garnet is too sexy for them to handle.
