The Futurama Generals  A new message board.  It doesn't have much yet, but that's because it just started today.  Trying to go with sort of an army theme with the colors, still probably needs tweaking, and it definitely needs more forums.  There are still a couple things to work out, but when it's up and running, I think it'll be pretty good.  Also, I'm a mod.  Post opinions.

EDIT: Fixed the link.

1) We are having trouble with ranks right now.  2) You didn't sign up.  Your name is not on the members list.

if you go on it, it doesn't seem like much but when you login, then you are abult to see everything (sorry for the technique problems)

P.S. you probably know this but if you want to register click register id fill in the blanks then go to your email and get your password, then login with it, go to profile and change your password and stuff

also if you have an AIM name you can just register and not look at your email and i'll change it to what ever you want!

I was going to comment about your site when I saw you plugging it in another thread.  Anyway, some suggestions:

  • I can't read the links, dark blue text on a black background isn't good.
  • You have wayyy to many forums.  Join some of them together until you have enough activity to warrent splitting them up. On that note, you shouldn't give each Futurama site their own category.  PEEL has a single 'Websites' forum and topics for each of the sites inside of that, which are created by members when they want to talk about it.  Similarly with the TV shows.
  • You use YaBB forum software.  (But then, it is a free host, you have no choice in the matter)  If you get a little money, go and get real hosting, but only if you get enough members to financially justify it, and get a nicer message board software  smile
  • CGEF isn't "futurama's main site", it's just one of the most popular and large ones (you're implying that it's the offical Futurama site).  After spending 10 minutes on the FOX and Cartoon Network sites, I couldn't find it, but there probably is an official site.

Here's Fox's Futurama site:  http://www.foxworld.com/futurama/

It only has character bios, though.

Yeah, that's my other complaint.  I'm less likely to join if you hotlink those neon signs.  Leave a small link in your sig, and I might just join.

Though I don't want to squash your dreams, Futurama has only two message boards, PEEL and a.t.f.  Though PEEL currently squashes a.t.f like a bug.  A bug I tell you, a bug!

You, like me (I did start to make a site, that was almost unique), are too late.  Since the show has been cancelled, it's unlikely that the online community will grow anymore.  Unless of course the show resumes.

Would you like to see my warez collection?

I think the worst thing is trying to get members by trawling other forums for them. I mean, what are you offering that PEEL doesn't have? Nothing that 99% of PEELers would consider so vastly important they'll frequent your message board over PEEL.

They won't frequent it over PEEL, but we are trying to make it so that they'll like it.

Well, I like your site, futuramafreak, and I plan on visiting often. The more forums the better, I say - we need all the Futurama exposure we can get out there.
And why should PEEL hold the monopoly on Futurama forums just because it's PEEL? Who cares if Futurama Generals doesn't offer anything ground-breakingly different than PEEL? That's like saying there should only be one kind of potato chip because  a Lays chip doesn't offer anything vastly unique over a Laura Scudders. These guys have passion for our most beloved crew and are doing something about it -- they should be commended, not chided.
It's all about CHOICE, people, and I for one like having the option of visiting PEEL, The Leela Zone, CGEF, The Fry Hole, Ain't No Such...Amy Wong, Space Station Futurama, The Futurama Point, Rough Draft Studios Test Site or Miss Ampere's Parlour depending on what my mood is.
So keep up the good work, Futurama Generals!  You can count on my support!   big grin

There are at least 3 more message boards: DOOP, Futurama Forum Zone, and Futurama Foundation.
PEEL still remains the largest (and most powerful), but there are others besides ATF

Thus why I never hear about the other three.

My point about that was why advertise it on PEEL, it just seems cheap looking for memebers on a forum that's almost the same.
