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?Restructuring1. 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!

You don't have to worry about there will be no server to play. Just they will need to develop their own new content (some of them are already doing it now) to stand out from the crowd.I understand Yuzo mean we aren't being as helpful as we can everyday to bring people back to the game or keep people interested, but then if you think about it RMS has been around for more than 10 years if we have to do that everyday we will get very tired. I am just taking a relaxed approach (saving my limited resource to where it is needed most) and let the community build itself as I said earlier.Also, thanks everyone for the support and being understanding.

A shiny skin is just a shell, a site's validity have nothing to do with how it looks. Just look at google.com, they surely made enough money to justify any kind of shiny layout but there is none because functionality / usefulness is most important.
