    It's possible. There's a Facebook group, a Myspace page, and a Twitter feed.

    But the website is the main stop.

    Happened before (A few times?), was fixed. He may not be active on the forum itself but I'm sure that he is aware of its status.

    - With no admin or mods, spam and trolling will continue to grow, like another one of i0n's other sites, ps3chat.com
    It has risen it has fallen, at the end of the day even if spam happens here and there it's nothing site killing. WiiChat is doing fine on the spam/troll/flame front. Even if we get a porn poster posting everywhere, chances are posts will come after and it'll soon be forgotten. PS3chat was always an extremely small site to behind with from my limited knowledge.

    Not only is there clear precedent and examples from other forums WiiChat's admin also runs, but it's a simple matter of heading from "A" to "B" if you are in a straight line towards "B". Doesn't matter the speed. You're going there.
    But isn't your site headed the same way anyway? In 3 years all these sites will be dead/on last few members.

    It has? When was the last time i0n abandoned every single one of his forums/assets/means of communication for over half a year?

    He may not be active on the forum itself but I'm sure that he is aware of its status.
    What gives you that idea? He hasn't even so much as signed in to anything on the internet since like Feb.

    It has risen it has fallen, at the end of the day even if spam happens here and there it's nothing site killing.
    It certainly can be. If the signal-to-noise ratio continues to fall, people are less-inclined to bother.

    But isn't your site headed the same way anyway?
    Nope. See attachment.

    In 3 years all these sites will be dead/on last few members
    Why's that? Because they have "Wii" in the name?

    Any reason you're following this thread if the topic (clearly stated) has no interest to you? I'm not trolling the PS3 threads. Obviously there's some interested in the contingency plan... I didn't start this thread. But by all means, if you'd rather hang out at WiiChat, no one is forcing you not to. Just use the handy "Ignore" feature and ignore me and the 95 other ********** users who sometimes post here. Careful, though... some are WiiChat mods.

    There are lots of Wii forums out there. The question is: which do people here want to migrate to and call "home", while retaining their connections and sense of community?

    One thing ********** has going for it is that there are a lot of current and former users from Wiichat there already. And it's run by a long-time Wiichat user.

    If it's all about looks... well, ********** will be getting a facelift this year, either late summer or sometime in the fall I predict.

    One thing that's bothered me about a lot of forums is their incorporating "Wii" into the name of their forum. That sort of limits their longevity. Would you really be attracted to "GamecubeChat.com" or "N64space.com" today? Not so much... they seem dated.

    Unless your me.
    I like to build up a reputation on a forum from nothing.

    Unless I grow bored with the people on the errrrrrr....................board!
    (That has happened with a few sites mainly due to the people on them sites being dull)
