So I'm writing this to get some ideas from the community as to how we can improve the site. 

 

Is there anything specifically you want? Any ideas to enhance the site, whether it be a new skin, a new feature, etc.?

 

 

Ideas So Far:

  • Redraft - Hurricane Season
  • Invest time promoting SI to attract more members/activity - Numerous Members
  • NBA Sim League - CC (Failed to gain enough traction - will revisit again in late September)
  • Bring Back HOF Ceremony - Hurricane Season
  • Changing HOF/Staff colors - CC (DONE)
  • New Skin & Rios - Who-Dey-Bengals_14_18 (Added Two New Skins)
    • SI Buzzy 2015
    • SI Light
    • SI Bosox (Updated with new images)
  • Update Fav. Team Icons - Tony H.
  • GFX Tourny - buzzy
  • Get Rid of Division Forums - Rios (DONE)
  • Pugz4Admin - The Guid
  • Bookie - Sportsguy9695 - General consensus is the site doesn't want one
  • Update SIdebar Poll - Buzzy (DONE)
  • Archive For Past Polls - Buzzy
  • Logos under each Sport? - Shaggy and Rios (Will Look In To)
  • Tag Teams in Topics - nolafan33

Other Ideas we might look in to that haven't been mentioned, or were mentioned in the past:

  • Monthly Email Newsletter - Would feature hot topics, recent polls, and new material from the GFX section
  • Bring Back the SI Podcast
  • MLB Sim League - would probably have to bring a league from somewhere else that is looking to restart
  • Homepage - Unlikely but still possible. Would feature News, hot topics, Polls, the occasional SI Member-written article, and recent designs from the Graphics section.
  • Bring back SOTW? Or try a SOTM? - It was big until we had problems with the member mentions feature. It died down after that. Still looking in to fixing the tag so we can start this again.

Invest some time in spreading the word.

 

More activity is the only real thing I'd ask for on this site

I want a new fbb league as well and I think we have the active members to do it. Also a bit more activity in the forums would be good.

It would be way too hard to get the hang of the new FBB and all and run a league through it. I don't want to rule it out but I feel like if the league were going to come back it would have to be done on the old game.

And bringing back the sim league is great in theory but it's not even worth it unless we can get it damn near full.

the new fbb is easier to use for a smaller league, that's the only reason i support that idea.

regardless of which fbb, id love a league but it needs as much members as we could get.

Well, only way to know is to set up a sign-up thread and see how much interest you get.
