Righto, first of all, I don't know anything about this site's vision, goals or whatnot. What I do know is it has come to an absolute standstill over the last 2-3 years.
Let's address the elephant in the room. The site is dead, like the game it supports. The only reason people come here is to start some petty rant about some server they were banned from.
But, despite what I just said, Ragnarok Online is not a dead game, far from it. There are still plenty out there looking for a quality experience (lol that marketing line). Where do they come to look for said experience? Right here. But how can RateMyServer provide that service when it is broken as all hell?
1. The forum needs to shed its dead weight forums. The community needs to condense and compress. There are not enough users around these parts to require as many forums as we have.
2. Rebrand the community. Set some goals - something we can work towards, other than s*** on whatever hyped up server fell flat on its face.
3. Get some new moderators with fresh ideas. I see the current ones are still active, but their presence is deadly silent. Fresh ideas? A revamp on what we expect from server advertisements would be a start. AND SOMEBODY TO SORT OUT THE BLOODY LISTINGS!
While this forum does not necessarily have a great amount of relation to the main site, it is the roots which prop it up. Without this forum, the site itself begins to lose context.
Please give your input, I beg you. This site is a hub for all that is strong in Ragnarok. We can not let it fall!
I dont understand your problem at all. You seem to be worried about the future of RO but act like its RMS fault.
RMS IS playing its part. You know why?
What is RMS?
RMS is a information/Datebase site about the korean MMORPG Ragnarok Online. Here you can find information about the game or private servers or the emulators or have Access to the forum.
All RMS is doing is to give information about the game or connect the RO community.
When RMS becomes smaller or some people decide to leave RMS/Ragnarok Online it ISNT RMS fault. Its because of RO.
What you dont understand is the following thing:
The life of RMS is connected to the life of RO because RMS is RO and RO is RMS. This site and all the other RO sites are only active to the line where RO is alive. If RO dies out, this page and other RO pages will die out.
So if you see that RMS or other RO sites are becoming less and less active and that users are leaving, you cant blame it on RMS, blame it on Gravity or on RO or its players. Because it isnt RMS fault that users are inactive here, if they are inactive it means that RO players in general are leaving.
RO as a game is far from dying out, but lets say that ROs had its best years already. The only chance that RO has for surviving on a large scale on the MMORPG world is by remaking RO with better programming, graphics and system.
if Gravity would be smart, they would make the exact RoMobile game that is coming next year as a PC version, but Gravity is stupid as hell and because of this s*** wont happen.
if you fail to understand that RO is RMS and RMS is RO, then postings like yours happen.
