Found on an old hard drive I hadn't touched it the best part of a decade... What ever happened to Morv?
Nobody cares this is gay
He was exiled to Europe.
Morv is from Belgium xlink!
I lost touch with him a few years back myself. Last I heard from one of his friends he was doing well though.
Hey bud, welcome back....for a few at least.
Glad to see you visit GR again to Maj!
Always get the itch to visit now and again!
Hoping one day I'll come back and there will be a new generation community booming.
That will happen. Well I hope it will!
I just need the old gen to help spark it up to get that new gen here.
I feel like Indiana Jones exploring this forum now...
The days of forums is no more i'm afraid. Nowadays its websites where you can show your artwork in a more direct way to more people and get more feedback. I think it's not just GR that is inactive, but just forums in general.
social media bodied forums. it's the sad reality.
the best way for a site like this to survive is to condense
take all the remaining resources that haven't been lost to time/dead links and put them on one board
condense all the discussion boards into a couple of categories.
given this site was sort of derivative, though, based heavily on art that went hand-in-hand with forums, it's hard.
returning members don't have much to do if it's mainly about a hobby that everybody has left behind
but having everything less spread out will make it easier for the people that drop in every now and then to participate.
it would probably be a mess to combine all the old resource boards, but they could be turned into like subforums, i imagine
otherwise, like "general discussion" and "entertainment" could become two boards on their own.
more are only necessary when things get too fast and become cluttered. But without activity, that's not a big issue.
you only need a single thread to greet new members. etc etc you get the idea
I think that in combination with a thread encouraging people to return to the medium would help a decent amount
