    Default MJJC Feedback Time

    Hi Guys

    I'm looking at ways to try and drive more activity to the forum thus I thought I ask you all for some feedback on what you would like to see added/changed.

    See as we are now deep in post MJ (hate saying that ) it's clear as a community we now need to look for alternatives to continue discussion.

    So let me know guys, what do you think is not working, what would like to see added that would be of interest.

    Obviously I am mainly referring to our non MJ area's but if there are any idea's on the MJ sections then of course post them to.

    Cheers

    Good idea Gaz. One thing that hasn't diminished are the decent discussions we have here at MJJC that you wouldn't find elsewhere.

    I think because MJ would lead many fans to listen to other artists because of his own inspirations and tributes, maybe the "General Music" part of the forum should move up a bit? Its obvious everyone here is a fan of music in some way or another, but I think this would be a great way to find out more about the people we basically chat with every day, and not have to revert as often to topics covered to death. Namely Invincible!

    Gaz, can I infer from what you're saying that visitor numbers are dropping too low??

    If MJ fans aren't coming here (just about the only major MJ community on the net these days) then I don't know what you can do to attract more members, other than to branch out with boards for other artists in the hope that they come here. I can see why that idea might not be popular though. Perhaps you could appease the MJ fans by only targetting fans from artists who have either inspired MJ or who have themselves been inspired by MJ. Obviously you'd have most visitors by doing the latter.

    Actually, I do have another idea. If there is for example a very active Chinese or Japanese MJ fan community, another option might be to diversity the site's user base by targetting specific language groups - add specific subforums where fans can communicate in their own language. I don't want to offend anybody...English is a very widely spoken language around the world, but perhaps the Chinese or Japanese fans may not be as likely to speak English as, for example, the German fans. Those guys are probably here already and if you introduced German language subforums you may fragment the existing community which wouldn't be desirable (IMO).

    As a Chinese visitor, MKGenie has been invaluable over the years, with the information s/he has provided early on about upcoming projects. That particular poster happens to speak good English but could potentially encourage other Chinese visitors (assuming s/he doesn't already run their own Chinese language forum that would be harmed by MJJC's expansion in that area).

    I think there have been some really great ideas mentioned. I definitely think it's worth a try to merge all MJ discussion into one, as Matty said I haven't really been in the news section for a while as it is very quiet for obvious reasons. I definitely think it would open up discussion more.

    I kind of just agree with all that Matty said actually lol some great ideas. Also the suggestion about driving more discussion around music as a whole about other artists in particular that inspired MJ. I know I would be interested in this as there are a lot of very knowledgable music fans here that I'd be interested in conversing with further but there's not much opportunity for that as it is at the moment.

    I think current discussions will always drive daily return visits, but there is a huge amount of great information on here that is not always easy to access, maybe because you don't know where or how to find it, and you don't always have time to look around.

    It would be great to be able to use some of the existing material more as a resource, maybe divided up into MJ 'historical eras' from pre-Motown onwards. Maybe just two or three headings under each era, such as 'Music /Tours', 'Films / Video /TV/ Photos' and 'Everything else'. Maybe after relevant new discussion threads have run their time, they could be archived under an appropriate 'resource' heading (but still allow discussion there).

    There are some 'MJ topics' that I'd like to read or post about, but they don't seem to fit anywhere in particular, like 'Dance' (including 'inspired by MJ'), MJ Costumes and Fashion, MJ Books and reviews/ Interviews about MJ, 'MJ Locations'- including homes, museums, statues etc. A worldwide annual Fan event Calendar , maybe in 'Legacy' would be good too.

    I'd like to see questions and answers with interesting people, not just MJ's family (although it would nice!), but also his collaborators, researchers (not necessarily people who met him personally), impersonators, collectors, doll-makers, etc. I think a couple of us over here do interesting stuff, so it'd be nice to learn more about each other

    I'll try to think of something (is there a deadline?), but while I'm here I just want to say that it's great that you as a mod ask us what we want.

    Guys, can we stay on topic please? This thread is to discuss improvements to the site as it is now. It's interesting to hear all your opinions on the 'In the Hood' section both for and against but I feel the thread is getting derailed now? Obviously there are fans who will love it, fans who will hate it and that is absolutely fine. Gaz's intentions when creating that section was to provide a platform for those more 'contraversial' (for want of a better word) topics that perhaps weren't in the traditional ethos of MJJC to see if there is a call for it as an unmoderated area. This was primarily to drive more discussion and see if there is a call for it but MJJC is first and foremost a fan forum, obviously. This was with a disclaimer that that part of the forum is unmoderated to a degree to allow members to make an informed decision of whether that is for you or not. I hope this makes it more clear?

    FYI, I have merged a couple of double posts in this thread as well to make it easier to follow. As always posts can be edited and the multi-quote function is there when needed. Thanks!

    That would have been the case if I'd have ask for that kind of feedback but it wasn't, I even specifically said it's mainly the non MJ sections, anyway I'm sure you can see there wasn't the need for all that I asked for specifics on what would you like to see changed/added/moved not a gazzillion words of back and forth between three members.

    But yeah moving on....

    A suggestion would be for mods to choose a song each week to be discussed, and that thread should be stickied at the top of the page to keep it alive. It could be a song/concert/collaboration/short film. This way we could avoid any possible lull that happens from time to time.
