Well, alot of you may like myself, realized that non-BYOND forums for a BYOND game often fault to get an impressive number of members. I am blogging today to brag about how I have overcome this obstical. Here is what my ivision free forum has.
Our members have made a total of 2,368 posts
We have 3,240 registered members

Now, notice how my member count(underlined) is ALOT bigger the my post count. This is because I came up with an ingenious way to force people into registering to my forum. How did I do that? I made my game require a registered username and password in order for someone to join it. It wasn't easy however it wasn't hard either. I think the hardest part was dealing with the interface.
Anywho, creating a system like this is more then just good for member count. It is also good in the aspect of controling your game(which we all know BYONDers love to do). You see, if I IP ban someone on my forum, they are no longer able to play my game. Pretty neat huh :)?... I know this system works because I was dumb enough to IP ban myself(had to get someone else to unban me).
Well, thanks all I wanted to write about. Hope you enjoyed the blog, and have a nice day.
