All right, this is rather simple really. I've noticed that this site has had a massive drop in activity. A good chunk of you aren't even posting in the C-box or logging in, and it has me really worried. Now I know school has started and all, but still, some of you haven't even popped on here in a month.
So the question is what is it that I can do to get you all interested enough in this place to get back into the swing of roleplaying? New skins? New places to roleplay? New events? Contests? What do I need to do to draw your interest back?

Alright, I thought of something we could discuss: the site name. Do you all just want to stick with the short, sweet, and to the point name, or do something a little different to catch people's attention?
We could name the site "Dango Daikazoku: A Clannad Roleplay", which is all I came up with. It fits the theme of the series (kind of a duh on that part if you know the series at least).
Changing the name would be helpful. Usually the more spiced-up seeming names tend to attract attention.
Another thing you could do is put the site up on some topsites. I've got links, if you need, because I've found that the more topsites you're on, the more members it seems to attract. Not to mention, Clannad isn't something you see everyday on a roleplay... So those that've heard of it might jump at the opportunity.
A third thing is that you should have a bit more information on the storyline and how it works for those that don't actually know it. >>; I mean, once you start reading it and all, you figure it out lickety-split, but for when you haven't read it, it might be a touch confusing. I know it was for me <____<
So it looks like everybody agrees on changing the name.
Selene, looks like we'll have to update the banners. Though that one that is the collage of characters might not have to be updated. Not sure on that one. Anyways, we'll also have to track down something for a dango theme. I did get the permission from that guy on deviantART with a Dango wallpaper if we need it.
As for topsites, if they are an anime themed one I wouldn't mind. I've never really had much luck with them in the past, and there aren't any Clannad ones around so....
As for storyline information, we have the Character list which gives a short description of the characters, and the thread that has information on the series. Has both a history of the series as well as the plot of the series. From Wikipedia, but it gets the job done.
If you still didn't get it after that give me some suggestions for how to make it clearer.
