posticon New Message Board or Old?


In the course of my duties here at Runboard I run across message boards where some of its members talk about "reviving" the board and getting busy again but, the original board owner has been absent for years in some cases!

Sooo... Is it better to put the effort in a revival attempt or to start a new message board based on the same theme/style of the old abandoned message board?

Re: New Message Board or Old?



If there's no one to manage the board, I say start a new one. If the board is open to everyone, there's no way to get rid of trolls. And if the board is membership approval only, there's no way to approve new members.

Or, find a new board for everyone to join, if no one wants to bother with managing a board.

Re:


It would really depend on the sisuation for sure. The only way to stay around an older board is if the one of the people around is an admin or has contact with the owner so they could come back and make an admin to run things, I took over a board devoted to Lost for the last season because the owner just didn't have the time anymore and didn't want to leave people hanging. Otherwise if that can't happen I'd say just start a new board.

Re:


I vote for revival if possible. The board may have a lot of sentimental meaning to some of the people that posted there. If it is brought back former members might return as well.

Re:


I voted for revival. Mine was in that category. Many save the url's... And if they revisit and see a dead one they may just go. SOO yes. Revival.
