In an effort to broaden this place's appeal, and thus hopefully increase revenue through more charter memberships and increased advertising dollars, I think a game room would be a good option. I'll repeat what I wrote earlier, word for word:
I don't know if this would help or not, so I'm just going to throw it out there:
Add a games section, which has been suggested several times already. It might broaden this site's appeal, and that might mean more memberships and/or a way to broaden VS's advertising appeal. Might. Hell I don't know, but it's worth thinking about.
And before the purists scream "This is a VIDEO site!", let me say this:
1. We have Sift Talk and channel Talk posts, in which people discuss just about everything under the sun. And the subjects often don't have a damn thing to do with videos.
2. This site has blogs. What do blog posts have to do with videos? Unless there's a video in it, probably nothing.
3. We have a chat room. Where people chat. No videos present, nor even possible.
4. We have a crossword puzzle. Last I checked, a crosword puzzle is a type of GAME.
So this site has already branched out beyond mere video posts. Are games that much of a stretch? As mentioned before, we wouldn't even have to "sift" them. Just have a game room where the games are already posted and people can play. Maybe make it so that games can be suggested and/or voted on, that way the good ones stay and the lame ones go.
Like I said, I don't know if games would help at all, but I think we have to start being creative with suggestions on how to broaden this site's appeal.
So I really want to do this to help this site out. What say you?
