    Hello Anime community,

    My name is Mathew and my username is mathewaki, I am the new proud owner and Administrator of Anime Community. I have had a love of Anime, cosplay and pop culture for over 20 years now. I clearly remember spending my childhood watching Anime every morning before school and on the weekends. I still remember the very first episode of Dragon Ball Z and was instantly hooked.....I have since spent numerous hours watching and reading countless anime content.

    OK so let's talk about the future of Animecommunity.net

    One of the main issues that I can see with this community is the lack of members....as we all know the more members, should lead to more activity and engagement. We need to grow this forum, we need to have more people signing up and contributing to this site. So I have been thinking hard about how we can attract more members to this community.

    Before I get into my plan I must say the following: I purchased this forum as I love Anime and know these type of communities can do really well if people are willing to contribute and form a community. What I must ask is that all current members keep posting away, share the forum and tell others, because I have a few plans to make this a great and successful community.

    My Plan to make Animecommunity.net Great!!

    I will be seeking feedback and suggestions from anyone who wishes to contribute.

    1. I will be opening and starting various social media pages for this community, so far I have created a Facebook page. Please give me time to get this integrated within the forum. Link to new FB page:

    https://www.facebook.com/Anime-Community-311598585866899/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel

    Please click the link like and share the page, other social media will be added soon.

    2. I will be commencing both free and paid forms of advertising in a hope of attracting new forum members.

    3. I am thinking about connecting this community to a blog page where reviews and general news can be discussed from the Anime world. I will be seeking to hire a content writer/blogger to help me with this. If anyone here blogs or would know of anyone interested in becoming a contributor please let me know. As the blog grow I will add more content writers.

    4. I will be adding more to the forum, more forum categories. I hope this will create more incentive for more signups and discussion, I will be keeping any new categories within the same Anime related theme. Any ideas or suggestions for new categories will be welcome.

    5. Monthly Competitions: I hope to have competitions monthly. This I hope will create engagement and member levels in return making this a great, fun and exciting community.

    Anyway sorry for such a long post and thank you for reading, feel free to leave any comments or suggestions below.


    Thanks

    while i agree we do need more members, I would suggest something. that is if we have starting with small community of even15-20 active memvers and thers join obe by one we can have a more close knit "community" where everyone ll b familiar with each other n stay connected. rather thn havingthousands of members whom nobody really knows each other. that feels less community like. one of the advantages of this forum is the homely feeling it gives ys as other members become our friends.

    that being said ive also invited many of my past friends here, but as they are older and busy in lives they are taking their time.

    I am good with writing and can definately blog. You mentioned you are "hiring" so will this be a paid opportunity?

    If you are going to spend real money to save this community i think contests for merchendice or gift cards would be better.

    I think a template that current users can copy and paste to their social media account might make things easier to share.
