Just thinking out loud here but it would be fun if each city had it's own message boards. They would be good for building inter-city relationships or just good ole trash talking during TH"s, etc.

I realize there really isn't a need for them right now as the boards aren't bustling with traffic lately but if they were, it would be great fun. :)

I think thats a great idea Missy. Of course we would still need the main boards, but could generate some new posts when visiting outside your home city. Whether it be a TH or a VH. Could get some good storylines going in some RPing threads as well.

Excellent idea! Perhaps would not be too hard to implement, either, and would add a bit more interest and RP opportunity, as Bonelady said.

My 2 cents:

Not good. Part of the reason newbies will sub might be because they read the boards and get to "know" some of the detectives. The unsubbed can't read boards in other cities.

While I have your ear (or eyes) I add:
This is also a good reason to not post threads in the "newbie" or "sleuth talk" threads that indicate boredom, loss of interest, or improvements to the game. There are other places for that.

Why would a person subscribe to a game where the other players are complaining how boring it is? Our numbers are dwindeling...do you think there might be a connection??

Ah, I certainly hope I did not come across as disatisfied or bored...
I am a die-hard Sleuth Noir lover :D
I don't get bored here, it is my little sanctuary where I come to recreate and enjoy (and use my little gray cells) as RL permits

I do enjoy hearing all of the new ideas coming from some of the newer detectives, whether or not they are implemented - as well as the differing opinions.

Sorry Sophie4/Greebo....?
WHERE do you think that game improvement questions are to be posted?
When I was really new to the game, I posted it in the subscription part of the message board, but was politely asked by Secret Squirrel to please post theese kind of questions on Sleuth Talk, as the subscription section was not at all the place for such things.
May be you want to help me come to the conclusion that there are NO places to post when you have ideas for game improvement? Well, this kind of attempt of shutting the mouth of those who don't agree with you are not that inspiring...
Ah... Now I see, may be we should suggest that a board be created in say Shanghai, where we freely can discuss topics you don't like... - because there the newbies don't get to read it ;-)
Also, I think I can tell you that newbies who consider subscribing don't read the boards that much. I have had a couple of different tries with giving out a one month free gift subscription, but there have actually been so little interest to those post's that I have hardly been able to give any.

I've mentioned before about I'd like more message boards in a variety of places. We already have the cabaret, the races, and Top of the World Tea Shop. A board in London and Delhi (and maybe Cairo) would round out the set.

Of course, it's true that the one's we have don't get much use.

lol SS. That's not true huglover when I was newbie I was king(let) of these ere boards. I think lots of newbies read the boards, but don't post on them. It's a shame.
