Default How can we get you original members more active on the forum?

Like the title says, what can we do here on MW/JW to have you stick around and become more active? All the issues that happened in the past(if there were any) have long been forgotten. Its been years. Please let me know here in this thread what we can do to keep you around and posting more? Let us have it.

Not really sure what you can do, advertise? Mass email to all past members? It would be good to see this place alive again.

I wouldn't post for the sake of posting. If a topic is interesting or an OP asks for an input would I respond

hope this helps

So not interested in sticking around because we don't have torrents anymore? What were the torrents on, movies?

I had actually forgotten about this place.
I think the leaving of some prominent members who were truly active (e.g. Matteo aka TT, danV6 or simply dan etc.) was one of the reasons that brought this place down.
Coming back to this place feels kinda good after some years and I'll try to check out more often. IMHO some stuff to encourage more visits could be: return of some of the site attractions like contests of month, exclusive videos, Tapatalk support, etc.

Unfortunately, the thing that this forum is missing is going to be the most challenging to rebuild. What with the prevalence of Youtube, Streetfire, and a variety of other video-web-hosting places, there's less of a pull to Motorworld now than there used to be. Furthermore, since a lot of the frequent-posting users jumped ship when enmity between them started to reach a head, it could well be impossible to bring back the sense of community that once existed here. Your efforts to re-ignite this forum are laudatory, but I suspect it's probably pretty pointless.

How about news about cars, like Top Gear does. Yes, torrents also, but how about small cheap tuning tweaks for cars. Information about driving events?
