Experts Look: WoW Needs Some Help

Don’t worry, this isn’t a “come-back” for me here at HTR.

But more of a request of HTR’s “member” to give input on what can be done to help improve HTR’s “sister-site” Wowhockey.com

So please give your thoughts…..At Wowhockey, with the lock-out. Things aren’t just slow. They’re going no-where.

But a “lock-out” shouldn’t be used as an excuse. Because look here at HTR.

Members and admins are trying to put together as many ideas, thoughts and contributions as they can to save the site.

Here is how things currently stand:

-The admins post once ever mondays. Articles need a miracle for over 10 comments.

-Not enough variety input from members. Its usually the same 12.

-The site doesnt have much advertisments or other site links.

-The forums are fairly active, but only in some of the threads. A lot of threads havent been commented on for months.

-The site is more of a fantasy league site. Members just go straight there. But we believe this feature can be used as an advantage for the site…..

-And our “buttons” are UGLY!

So please HTR members, check out the site(join if you want).

www.WowHockey.com

Take a look at things, and let your thoughts be known. It wasn’t long ago when HTR was in WoW position. Except with no NHL hockey. The site could be finished….

    Help save wowhockey!

    I got one! Leaf_Expert leaving!

    The buttons on wow are just fine, the admin’s are great, (well that goes for both sides here.) and the fantasey leagues are what attracts members.

    I think you have to compare two things….

    …how the site was active before the lockout started, and how inactive it has been since the lockout.

    If wowhockey.com was running just fine before the lockout, then i would not worry too much because we can expect and have some sure feeling that there will be some sort of hockey season in October. And, if replacements happen…then things are going to get extremely busy around here and most likely on wowhockey.

    You have close to 4,000 members and that’s excellent for the time since wowhockey started.

    It really depends what the admins want to do, and what Trademan thinks as well. If it is acceptable that wowhockey is running with low activity, then keep it that way. If they think that wowhockey needs a boost (which could give the possibility of fast growth in the future) then changes need to be made.

    Then again, it depends on what the admins think and Trademan.

    To me, it looks strikingly similar to this site. As a first time viewer of Wowhockey, a got a huge impression that it was the minor site to HTR. That would be like watching AHL hockey when there is NHL hockey on. Which one would you watch?

    I am not a web administrator but as a casual viewer, why not change the look. Why not try to rival it with this website. Make it a viable alternative. Smackdown vs Raw maybe?

    bottom line is that with no hockey, there is nothing to talk about…

    Both sites are good, so that’s not the prob.

    We’ve heard just about all of the opinions re: this lockout. (stupid players! argh)

    It’s a shame we can’t do trivia or something, too easy to cheat.

    (I’m really reaching now huh?)

    This winter sure has sucked w/o the “coolest game on…”

    hearing your “adolescent rants” doesn’t help anything…

    maybe if geeks like you left, this site would have more credibility.
