Posted By:  webhead @ 11 March 2015 - 01:02 PM
Hello,

Over the years, we tend to go through highs and lows at the Center. You may have noticed there's a cycle. As of late, it seems like things have gotten a little out of whack, and we've seen a few members quietly drop off the radar not to be heard from again for various reasons. With this in mind, we've been brainstorming over in the mod forum (it's not just spam!) about how to change things up and improve the overall environment around this place. In the course of doing this, we thought "hey, let's actually ask people about what they think," and so we've created a short little survey. It's more short answer than multiple choice but I really wanted to gather up opinions somewhere and I wanted it to be private from the rest of the forum (only the mods will be reading this...sort of like if you'd sent us a mod report).

Take the Survey Here: https://docs.google....fbJMRk/viewform

Few things with this. ANYONE can take this. If you've been going here a week, a year, a decade, or if you STOPPED going here or you know someone that has, take the survey. Pass it along to someone that you know that left. It's a fairly simple survey but it's the first step we're taking to improve things around here, and we want to know everyone we're serious about it. This is nowhere near as bad as the last version that was hanging by a thread but I don't WANT to see the place wither and die. Tell those people you know that left that we're genuinely listening and hoping to improve things. The survey uses your Google account to prevent duplicate surveys. I've left a box for you to enter your forum name as well, but you don't have to put it in there. We just want feedback. You can cut the shit and be as frank as you want. If you think we're fucking something up, tell us. If you think things are fine...tell us. If you think Xylus smells funny...well maybe keep that to yourself. He has a fragile ego. :(

This year marks our 15 year anniversary. 15 god damn years. Holy shit right? Let's make sure we make it to 20 and then 30! If you're seeing this message somewhere other than the forum itself (or you're lurkin'), hop on back and say hi.

Betty and I have created life!

We're pregnant as fuck. After reading a few books on how to build a baby, we put our heads together and created the first of its kind: A Purebred Center Baby!

It's going to have Betty's brain and my Olympic-athlete metabolism. It will one day oust Webhead as Center Overlord and melt gokuu's heart.

Baby is due in July!

:D :D :D

Toggle this category Center Awards 2014 - Nominations

Posted By:  Garlic Junior @ 20 December 2014 - 12:29 PM
Aloha,

In case you are unaware, for the past few years I have been running The Center Awards, an end of year celebration of everything that makes us.... us.

2012 - Nominations - Results
2013 - Nominations - Results


As ever, there are two aims with these awards:

1) Everybody take part!! I don't care if you're a Forever Lurker, I don't care if you have 5k posts or 50, I don't care if you feel like you don't belong here any more or if you just joined up last week. Everyone is welcome to take part, and please do. This only works if I get a good response to nominations.

2) Positivity, Positivity, Positivitiy!! Feel free to just PM me a bunch of names if you like, but what really makes these things special is the nice words we get to say about each other. The nominations are all anonymous so feel free to say what you like about anyone, so long as it's nice!


As we're a bit late in getting started this year, Nominations will be open into the New Year. I would hope to wrap this up early in 2015 so I'm going to provisionally say Monday 5th January is the last date for nominating, so when a bunch of members return for the usual holiday part-time posting, please point them in this direction. I will happily extend the timeframe if it means more votes and more quotes!


To take part, simply PM me anywhere between zero and five nominations for each of the below categories. Feel free to put as much detail and quotes into your choices as you like also :) reasons are always better, but not mandatory.

Now, I was going to axe a few categories, but I like the idea of looking back at past winners too much so I decided not to. I have however added in a few new ones. Remember, you don't need to vote in every single category, but please vote for as many as possible :)

Toggle this category The Center: Busy As Fuck

Posted By:  Xylus @ 03 March 2014 - 10:32 PM
Deejay pointed out yesterday how the Center seems to be thriving right now, reflecting on how amazing it is that we are still alive and kicking ass. In conjunction with this thought, I wanted to give you some hard numbers to prove it.


Top 3 Months of Version 6 (Total Posts):

1. May 2013................10868 posts
2. June 2013...............10249 posts
3. February 2014........9847 posts

Looking at it from this point of view, it seems like we came just short of breaking the record, but on the contrary. Last month was actually our biggest month to date:


Top 3 Months of Version 6 (Posts Per Day)

1. February 2014......352 ppd
2. May 2013..............350 ppd
3. June 2013.............341 ppd


That's right, we fucking smashed the record by 2 posts per day!

Spoiler

Keeping at that pace over a 31-day pace equates to 10902 posts for a month. Going further, that's a 12-month pace of 128,362 posts. Hardly reasonable to keep that pace up every month, but still something to think about. In contrast, for the entire year of 2013, we posted 92,987 total posts (avg of about 255 ppd).


A lot of this is just number vomit, but it speaks to something much greater: The Center is growing, almost miraculously. We have had a few new members sprinkle in over the last few months, but a vast majority of our activity is produced internally--members who were here all along, excited to consistently participate in a community they've been apart of for 2 years, 10 years, 14 years, etc.

Now enough of the self-congratulating, we have some records to break.
