I like for KJ to be more than just a movie site, so nice to see Flava's list on the main page.

And the word Forum on the side nav. :roll:


That started literally today.


Nope. Been there since they launched the new landing page.

Yes but it's been glitching on main computers. Completely understandable of course. Today the new format is nice on the main page. Before that (If it wasn't there) you had to click a side bar option that semi worked. Now it seems to be good.

Also have to get used to Box office being above Cinemania :funny:

That started literally today. Before that unless you did a history search, you could not access the forum. Good job on the sidebar? Is there a reason you killed the old format? It seemed a lot cleaner just to click forum in the top right.. Especially when the other pages are the same. Not that I mind the cheaper google option, but the options are pretty much anything you can find in the forum, and since most have no articles the last people will want to do when they click on them there is no content. At the very least link the reviews to the critics thread, same with the oscars until you figure out a better structure.


The sidebar has been there and in the same place since I launched the new site. It's possible you are visiting the mobile version of the site half the time or something

The Oscars link leads to an empty page right now. But there will be a Oscars article that goes up in the next few days.

Don't know what to tell you , the sidebar has only worked today for me. But I see the issue now. If it's half screen you cannot access it. If it's full yes, if it's small yes

Lots of content today! Won't be a normal thing to have this much but end of year and Oscars led to some time sensitive articles

We have MadGez discussing 2018's record year http://wokj.worldofkj.com/2018-a-record-year/

I wrote about 10 candidates to host the Oscars: http://wokj.worldofkj.com/who-will-host ... andidates/

zwackerm, Flav'd, MadGez and I did an Oscars roundtable: http://wokj.worldofkj.com/oscar-roundta ... -and-more/

:thumbsup:

Is it good or bad that I didn't know about the 21 Savage deportation when writing? I think it is hilarious but that kind of thinking got Demi Lovato banished from Twitter.

I’ve noticed it too. Good to hear that others have noticed as well.

The addition of one more regular in Harry Warden helps

The challenge will always be to bring in totally new people. New regulars. Harry Warden is an old member, unbanned and allowed back. Hardly a triumph. I can only think of one person that's brought in totally new people, and that's me. stuffp and Felipe. My real-world friends. I don't see anyone else doing this.

For all the money and effort you're spending, you don't have much of a knack for understanding the game. You have to start small.

Sure. Who doesn't? But anonymity brings trolls. Is that really the environment we want to create? We're a small community yet nobody actually knows each other, which means we're continually poised to lose members.

It sounds like they're not very close friends. It could also be that we all have friends which are just not into films much.

It's difficult to get people excited about a low traffic forum. Especially in this day and age with places like twitter and reddit where the volume is incomparable, and those happen to be the main places people are finding WOKJ from. We have discussed adding a like button which would tap into some of the narcissism of social media these days, but it's nearly impossible with PHP unless you're a coder who can make it yourself

Getting eyeballs to WOKJ has not been a problem. We are linked on the side bar of r/box office which new people are clicking on every day. There is over 50 registrations since December who either made 0 posts or less than 3, which means the number of people who found WOKJ and turned away before registering is at minimum hundreds, if not in the thousands. The last gift card contest brought a whole bunch of people here who had a post history on reddit showing interest in box office, but none of them wanted to post about it here. So the question is why is it so hard to make people interested in staying? Many horses led to water who didn't drink. The most likely answer is the volume difference and that they already have their routine posting somewhere else. WOKJ has no specific brand - it's good at box office, but it's not really a box office forum. Awardswatch for example which gets more new members than us has a specific thing, both tracking Oscars and being the best type of forum for a snobby arthouse poster, who's also gay. What specific type of poster does WOKJ attract? Smart ones? But everyone on the internet thinks they're smart. Plus the reality is the content on WOKJ has slipped in a lot of ways which means there's less to make up for the traffic difference. The people with the biggest social personalities on WOKJ also had the biggest social personalities in real life (loyal, etc.) which means at some point they had a real life to get to. I think a good type of poster to get would be a normal person who hasn't gotten into a routine posting about movies anywhere else on the internet yet. Maybe 14 year old posters or something would fit that. But not sure how to target those - WOKJ Tumblr account?
