Why this website isn't attracting 1/4 of what it could

Hello I'm here to point out your mistakes.

1. Gamers aren't interested in becoming priests - lay off the God stuff.

2. The forum layout is AWFUL, look at the huge Welcome/Our Mission boxes that are on every page.

3. Anyone giving advice here is just another loser, if you want to really help people, open up an 'extreme' forum where people can ridicule addicted gamers, which in my opinion would make them want to quit, rather than having some middle aged housewife who has nothing better to do telling them that gaming is the devil and it will ruin your life.

Cheers.

You didn't show respect there, so if it someone got a problem it is you not her. I am just a normal dude, which says that u got a social handicap.

But it is your problem not our. "recpect" was the word

Re: Why this website isn't attracting 1/4 of what it could

I must reply to this

1.) you could work on the layout(considering im on computer classes it's a snap for me) 2.)the god stuff is kinda to much i mean some people might be other religions and as for me i used to go to church but i don't anymore its boring and i just have other things to do, Church is boring and i don't go to church not that im athicist but yeah
3.)you need to put your site"out there" let others know about it!
I would promote it on my myspace which i have about erm 500 friends? but i don't exatully want people thinking im a freak so i can make a personal myspace page for you guys if you like =] and make random comments to gamers im sure you would get loads of attention =[) well enought of me talking lol

1. If anyone wants to suggest another layout ... sit down and make an example ;) 2. The god stuff has nothing to do with religion, or with OLGA in particular, itA's just what has been found to work best with addiction ... itA's a technology, like knowing that when you want to put a nail into a board, you use a hammer and not a screwdriver. Same with spirituality and addiction 3. We do not promote this site, people who need help, find us... In response to Extinction: calling the many great people on this board loosers is a bit too risque for to say for someone who just came here "to point out our mistakes" I challenge you to spell out how exactly people here are loosers and you are not ;)

He hasn't posted here since 2003, rsaddict pulled out a VERY old post. [color=Red](Isn't school going right now, rs? Isn't 1:46 p.m. right in the middle of a class? ) [/color] [color=Blue]I banned him anyway, just to make sure he would not return.[/color]

Yea, the layout is much better now :P And no matter what any of us do in any area of life, there will always be someone to ridicule us. Flick away the pesky mosquitoes!!

1. One reason people game is because there is a void in there life, one that a religion can help. If you don't want to believe in religion, you don't have to. The guidelines are there to help religious people quit, hopefully show non-religious people "the light", and provide a guideline to help non-religious people quit. You don't HAVE to believe in a God, but it's there, and I'm glad it is. 2. Anyone intelligent enough to play a complex MMO can figure out the forum layout. 3. Your opinion is wrong. Gamers don't care what other people think. Look at me, you think I'm cool? I played runescape for a year and I'm angry I wasted my time on it. I don't care what you think about it. Go ahead, make fun of me. I have friends, a life (even while I played I had loads of friends and stuff to do), and I own you at sports. What OLGANON is about is to help persuade people to quit IN A FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT THAT WILL ENCOURAGE THEM AND PROVIDE SUPPORT. Nobody would come to a website to be made fun of. You're completely wrong in this respect.

HA-ha-ha! Well said BigH!A I bet Bruce has banned that n00b HUNDREDS of times. (considering the avatar pic)A Although it looks like whoever has it currently hasn't been as much of a troll. DOH ... now I've done it ... HA-ha-ha! :P [color=Blue] X.[/color]

[size=14]Heh heh, yes that seems to be the official Troll Avatar here. I am not sure exactly how it was selected, but Bruce does set all trolls to that Avatar when he bans them, unless I am mistaken. :) [/size]
