So I know this has been suggested a couple times in the past but now we're having actual movement in the AFs and finally getting a Taylor Swift forum after so long so thought it might be time for another try.

I suggested it in the AF mod lounge and got mainly positive feedback so how about a Nicki Minaj subforum? Here's my reasoning, she's on a feature pretty much every week, has a huge social media presence (in terms of drawing new members to the site and meaning there's lots to post about her as she legit posts about 20 instagrams a day), her inc. thread is probably the most popular one I've seen who doesn't have their own AF but having a actual forum with mods give even more of an incentive to post about off topic a Nicki chat so I think there could be a lot to discuss and it could be pretty successful with a good mod team behind it!!

Her new era is due this year so what better time to at least give it a try ! Who knows - it might bring April back to site heehee.gif

Even if it was just on a trial run, I'd love to see us give it a go wub.gif

Yes!! Her and Ariana are the top contenders for a new AF now I think.

I don't think actually deleting AFs is in discussion at the moment. The discussion in the moderator lounge currently is what artists could replace existing dead subforums like U2 and Robbie (which could just be merged into Take That). Nicki and Ariana are the two who have been mentioned most as potential replacements so I thought I'd get the ball rolling on a poll. In the meantime whilst the new site is being made, I can guarantee Nicki would pull in more traffic than the artists above and hopefully be a surprise successful forum with the right mod team behind it biggrin.gif

tl;dr - we're looking for replacement forums ️. Similar to how Taylor has replaced the Glee forum and not been added as a new one if ygm!!

Yeah. And it would bring more of a variety to the forum while still catering to the communities overall love of pop. With that being said. Who would moderate the forum and take responsibility for culturing that? I'm interested to know a game plan for it's launch... as opening a new forum should be a big deal.

I'll vote yes if it's proven to drum up some hype across the board. Skeptical because the AF's are already in a slump. With that being said we should have AF's for any major act that has a huge following, it's what Britney, Girls Aloud and the Christina forum did back in the day and we should follow suit to attract new members.

Either go full out on making these AF's a smash or change the layout by the end of the year, IMO.

Also. I think the Artist forums should be connected to their genre forums when it comes to the board layout. Have a tab under the fitting genre to encourage casual fans to jump in on discussions.

We're not getting any layout changes until after the new site is up and running. iirc the last update we had from Phil was that this exact site would be recreated but with Phil's code and then it would be updated and then we'd add new features and shake things. Given that Phil hasn't posted since May the more we hold off on things the harder it's going to be to salvage any AFs.

Discussions yesterday have prompted the AF's into a bit of soul searching and action. We're all determined to make the best of the situation we are in right now to try and revive the AF's so that when the new site does come in 2059 there is a strong platform to build off. Part of that has to be cycling out some deadwood for new forums and putting a number of others, including mine, on notice.

None of Nicki's thread garner much traffic anyway so I don't see how a whole AF would work out.

There's no denying Nicki's popularity out on the wider web. It's a potential traffic getter for the site and let's be honest. The U2 forum has had what, 2 posts this year? It can't do any worse than that so there is really no harm in trying it to see if it works. If it doesn't then we'll try something else.

We can't just sit and let these parts die, it's worth taking the most dead of these forums and attempting to do something different

We need to get your voice in there. I can make you an AF mod so you can contribute to the general discussions!!

Edit - I've done this so you should now see the AF mod lounge again

I hate to be negative, but I don't feel like Nicki would get anywhere near the right amount of discussion for an AF

Gonna bump this as it has less votes than some of the others. It looks like Robbie forum might be going too so this is in with a shot !!

Yep, although it has meant that I've run into difficulties with my ability to create new forums, meaning that it will have to wait until the Will Young/Darius forums are closed.

A request, please close the Will Young first as that is much less active.

I still think the Take That or Leona ones should have been closed instead of Darius, don't understand why there is deemed to be more potential in those mostly dead forums! There were 13 guests browsing the Darius forum two nights ago, some of them could have joined that forum as members!
