I'm sorry, but this isn't going to work.
I'm sorry, but something has to be done now! This group isn't going to work with one admin trying to control all these members. I can't shuffle through 1000 different threads every day to see what's up. :/

I somewhat agree with you. Too many topics werew introduced at the start of this, and it doesnt help that there are repeats as well

This group, in my opinion, will fall apart soon. Some people get an idea, get really exited about it, then try to put it into reality. But often when that happens they expect too much right off the bat. They advertise where ever possible, invite loads off people, and create topic where people can only really answer once. Those tactics will only make a group last so long.

Heres my advise-
1. Cut back on the amount of topics. Try to stay with the ones people come back to all the time.
2. Really think about who you invite.
3. Don't advertise a lot. That can push people away.
4. Start a contest.

Thats all I got for now.

Now Eric's got the right idea!

I also agree with Eric (dang, I agree with him a lot!) and that this group will fall apart soon, mainly because it has no continuous relation to Legos or MOCs. Starting a contest won't help, it'll just get MORE people excited about something not related before that flops, too. Hopefully I can become an admin before this thing goes down. Thanks Eric. May Halo Group stay strong and true.

Yeah I'm not trying to sound really bossy or anything, but I think Eric, Crazy Awesome, and me would make great admins because we seem the most mature about things. :D

Sorry just a bit excited :D but even if we don't get into the admin positions, we all still have to find a way to improve this group and keep it from falling apart.

I'm also asking Max (our admin) whether or not he kicked you off of this group, or maybe if I can convince him to invite you again. You were a great help and I hope you get back into this group :)

He didn't kick me, it was weird. He actually asked why I wasn't in it anymore. I didn't even know.

I honestly wasn't trying to make this like a Admin campaign thread if that's what you mean lol. We'll see what happens. Where's that Admin when you need him!? :D

Btw if anyone wants to be in an upcoming MOC of mine just say it here. Its like a(n) allies/clan base for all my best friends on here. Just tell me what you wanna look like. Anybody can be in it.

Are you kidding me Mat? I did not kick you off! DUDE! You are one of the best people we got on this group! Actually, you were on the top of my who do I think would make a good Admin list. I'm still thinking of who else to pick but Mat, know that your one of them.....

I'm really SORRY guys I agree with you about the we need more admins thing before the roof falls apart.....

I'm gonna start picking admins now, and if I pick you, you can't add any other admins.....

The ONLY person that I was thinking about letting be an Admin who is now a Moderator is Crazy Awesome.....

When he started running so to speak, I thought, he is gonna be second place Admin (most likely 2nd after Mat).....

But for some reason now I have this funny feeling about him like he is gonna do something agents me or something.....

I might change my mind though.....

I probably will.....

I just wonna be able to feel like I can REALLY trust the Admins I pick.....
I can 99% trust Mat.....(cause there is always that little chance)
But I still trust him.....
I can 94% trust John.....(he really wants to help and he is great at helping.....I doubt he would do anything to make me not trust him again.....)

Anyway, now we have more Admins and Moderators.

I will think about making Crazy A an Admin, and I don't really know anything about Rooster.

I think sometimes it's nice to have Admins and Moderators, and will make Crazy A and maybe the other 2 Moderators Admins if we can recruit some more ACTUALLY ACTIVE troops.....

Thank you all for staying as active as you are.....and I know I probably made some spelling mistakes but that's not the point.....

(I'm sure you know that)

I'm going inside the mall now. (we took our wi-fi thing in the car for on the way to mall) I'll be out in a few hours give or take a half an hour.....

Talk to you then,

Max (you can call me MW if you want to.....)

Don't worry, Max, I'm fine with being a moderator for now, and certainly Max and John are more active than I am and will probably do a better job. Thanks for making me a moderator though.

Can I be a moderator? Or even an admin? You need at least 2 admins in 1 group. At LEAST 2.

That really doesnt make sense, groups like this only need one admin that knows what to do, but bigger organizations have three so whenever a problem arrises, they can handle it quickly.

I Agree with you Eric, but I'm kinda new at this group thing so that's why I made Mat and John Admins too.

I ever said you did, I was wondering if someone did. I hadn't known if anyone was admin yet, I didn't check and just asked if I had been kicked by someone else. Then I realized there wasn't another admin.

What's the use of it? It isn't giving you a status, rank or anything like that...

That was probably it. It's alright, it was an accident. I wasn't mad or anything, just wondering who/why it was done.

O.K., it doesn't really matter if you are or aren't, you are still part of the group right? You could help us by telling us about issues and things like that. Also if you are active, that helps too.

Ok, sure! I can do that. I can't upload anything for some reason. I didn't upload ANYTHING today and it says I can't upload right now. What's with that?

What I mean is talking, you can only upload two MOCs a day, was it changed to one? Not sure yet, but that would be why.

I decided to allow 2 MOCs a day cause some wanted 1 and others 3

1. Start a contest.
2. Have a Comment topic like in The TFOL Private Group
3. Have a Talk Topic. add a new one every now and then.
4. Add more Admins and Mods.
5. have a topic about the things people like, Black Ops, Just 'Cause 2, Etc.
6. Have a topic about the things people DON'T like, MW2, Halo, Etc.
7. Have a snazzy link like the TFOL Private Group(See my Hoomepage for it)
8. Have contests
9. Have a topic for Admin sign ups. Have a contest to see who would be good. Like 1st place is an Admin, 2nd place is a Mod, 3rd Place is a Mod Etc.
10. That's it for now.
