Site Upgrade?

Post by Luna on 3/7/2016, 2:44 am

So, Admin Genesis and I were talking, and we want to upgrade to an actual site, instead of a free forum. this would mean more space, a more professional feeling, and a REAL website name! (Cuz I kinda get tired of seeing .forumotion.com after NewGeneforce.) Feel free to voice you opinions below, ALL OPINIONS ARE WELCOME AND NEEDED. 

Admin Genesis has agreed to copy all Role Plays and Ongoing Topics and placing them safely onto the new site, so progress and work will not be lost.

Before we open the actual site to everyone, Admin Genesis, RKRobot and I (Luna) will make the sure that the site is open and ready to go!

So I am seeing that we are at about a 50/50 split, but no one is leaving any reason not to update. While I appreaciate your input if the people who dont want to update could please explain why so I can have an idea, it would be greatly appreciated.

So I do want to keep you guys all as up to date as possible, nothing is written in stone yet but I am working on a new site. I just need to wait to hear feedback from the other admins first. If there is anything you guys think we could use please let me know and I will see what I can do.

Seeing as how this "decision" is on the cusp of being finalized, I should probably chime in. I am one of the "no" voters.

Gonna be completely honest and say that I while I originally thought this could be a great idea, over the past few days I've had increasingly more and more reservations concerning everything that this transition to a paid website entails. As one who voted in opposition to this decision, I'd like to make clear that my "nay" is one that comes as a result of hesitation rather than indignation -- I don't want to vote yes for something I know little about. Quite honestly, there have been sparse details regarding why this shift may need to occur and I have seen next to nothing regarding the pros and cons of this choice. I need to see cost-benefit comparisons to make a decision, not whether or not something would be cool or fun. Thus, I'm not going to vote in favor of something if I don't know exactly what I'm voting for.

My first concern is in the cost. From what I understand, keeping up our own site would cost about $18 per month, which Genesis has volunteered to  cover. While that's not a large sum of money per month, I personally don't quite see that it would be necessary to do for the small community that resides here. We currently number at about 8, and if overall active membership was greater in number, then I could see this payment being viable. However, with our size as it is now, I don't see why we would want to pay when we already have the free option of Forumotion. I wouldn't want Genesis to have to invest money into something if he doesn't need to with what we already have, especially if we don't know exactly what we're getting into.

Speaking of which, what features would we be getting from a paid website that we have need of here? I have heard nothing regarding features and amenities that would be gained from a paid website. If such details were to be explicitly stated, then I might change my mind, but as is now, I don't know what we would get, and I dislike the idea of going into a cave without a flashlight, so to speak. As of now, the only things I have to go on are that we would have "more space and a professional feeling." This gives next to nothing in terms of what to expect. What is constituted as "more space?" As far as I've been aware, we haven't had need to expand, unless I'm overlooking something. And what is meant by a "professional feeling?" We aren't a business, company, or organization of any kind -- just a roleplaying site for friends to gather and have fun. While I understand that we want to seem approachable and friendly, I don't see "professionalism" as a major concern. The only other detail I've heard in regards to amenities would be linking Etsy shops and other shops of some kind to increase traffic flow to the site, which... I don't quite follow. More clarification would be greatly appreciated on this and everything else I've mentioned thus far.

As for the topics being moved... I'm not a fan. What about the gallery and the threads of our various artists? Would that also be moved, or would we have to do that manually? Moreover... the main concentration of the current Geneforce site and its predecessors has been a means to roleplay, hence why they've always been forums. Is there going to be an expansion into other things that I am unaware of with a paid site? If we are to continue to doing roleplays and stories, I must further ask what is the point of "upgrading" to a mansion when we only need a suburban apartment? That doesn't seem like more space -- it seems more like space that wouldn't be used and wouldn't be necessary to have in the first place. Then again, it's entirely possible that the rest of the members who have voted "yes" can see something about this that I can't. Currently, I'm not comfortable with the idea with the limited information that's been given.

TLDR - Give more concise details, not vague responses.
