As one of the people who never posted outside SMW sections (eh, I doubt any of you even recognise me), I have to agree that SMW is what kept the forums alive. I stopped coming here months ago, because SMW got boring and now when I see that it will never be updated, I don't think I'll ever play it again. Right now I am here, because I stumbled upon some info about Mega Man 72 and I kept checking for updates. Apparently the project is alive again, but the last post in MM72 section is from 11th of February. Even if you're still working on it, you should definitely tell people about it. How can they discuss it if they don't know what's going on?
I'm probably not going to post much anyway, but yeah, sections for more games that would interest people is a fine idea. Even better idea is making your own game, but as some people mentioned, you guys lack motivation. That's likely because if you fail, there is no one to slap you for it. And you're not gaining anything from it. I would love to see MM72 finished, but I think making a totally independent game that brings you $$$ AND attracts people to the forums is a better idea. From looking at MM72 I already know you could come up with some great ideas for games. Once such game gets popular, forums will too, as long as the developers are here to communicate with players, constantly fix bugs, update the game. In other words, show that they actually care
Ya know, on a second thought, I may actually try to be more active here. You all seem to love this site, but I never found anything special about it. Reason being, I never even tried to go beyond SMW sections. I'll give it a shot.
