But the internet is a big place, and there will always be room for our small niche to flourish, as long as we invest the effort to keep it an interesting place to visit. And TC is well placed to do that because of its history -- new visitors are greeted with nearly 200,000 posts. All it takes is a few recent post dates and instantly the forum looks active.
New Character Battles would be fun and it's also one of the sections that most directly pushes visitors to the forum for participation. We're all setup to do it. If you start one I'll promote it on the homepage.
Even though I've only managed to produce one of them, I've always been fond of the idea of the Traveler's Guides section and would love to read more of them.
My next goal for the site personally is integrating a lot more video content. Not producing content, just curating embeds from YouTube and Vimeo.
Maybe once activity picks back up and I land a job, we could hold some sort of writing contest with me giving out a reward on Steam along the lines of a reasonably priced free game or a Steam Card with $20 credit (that'd be doable)?
Anyway, I think a good way to get noticed would be to find someone in the community who has the means and the motivation to start putting out videos. Gameplay, reviews, opinion pieces... stuff that could be done with a capture card so they could stream new Nintendo games as they come out, and stuff that could feasibly produce a video's worth of content like once a week.
