How much would it take to make the forum better?

This forum does have a decent amount of traffic but it needs to be upgraded. I just want to softball this idea but here goes. How much would you sell this forum to me and i turned it around? I would hire a web developer and make it look brand new and new features like live chat, videos, Realtime post. A new account system, a full function archive of roosh work from his website and return of kings. One day we could have our own version of discord so we don't have to worry about getting banned.

The main issue here is the moderation. Same with Swoop.

Second issue is the lack of new headline content. That’s what built this place.

Livechat and fancy features aren’t the issue at all. They’d be nice to have, but without solving the other two issues, you’ll have nothing.

For what it’s worth, I wish you well, because I’d like to see someone else try.

I'd sell it for 10000$ in crypto
but I don't think fancy features just by themselves would bring the traffic up or create more engagement. Actually I don't really what would.

if you want to apply so many changes you will probably have to replace the MyBB software that is used here and then it's gonna be a hell lot of work to transfer the big archive to a new one. i doubt it's worth it just for some playful features.

the main issues of swoop are that the content is not publicly visible so they don't attract new users and that the website down more often than up. they fail to repair the forum.



and as far as i can see the main issue here is not the moderation. most people who were banned by citron were trolls and retarded clowns like PAG. or do you have any good examples?



imo the main issue here is that it's too roosh focused. most sane people don't want to be associated with him anymore since he freaked out. it should be used as a hub to build something new.

I have examples but I would be banned if I posted them. I can’t even post why PAG is a clown and deserved his ban. It’s made explicit in the forum rules why we can’t discuss one of the biggest issues in 21st-century society that has huge ramifications on social issues including game.

your examples are the 20 alt accounts that you have made since a year to whine about the "monkey invasion" of Europe. A subject that as nothing to do with the focus of the forum.
If you get banned everywhere all the time, here and on swoop, it's for a reason. Go back to sluthate forum or whatever it's named nowadays

I’ve only been banned once from here, and it wasn’t for racism. It was for being a PUA expert. But of course I am also racist and I know that I would be banned for it if I broached the subject.

10k in crpyto sounds fine let me think about it of course. I will have to contact a web developer and UX designer. I Imagine spending $150k total just on that. I would add content to this website videos will be hosted on here on. Possible on youtube but the might get banned there. Also this websites needs guides. Like a guide to foreign women or a guide to become a successful writer.

Remember, there were many competing forums and websites. There was the Naughty Nomad forum, Christian McQueen first and second forum ripoff. Swoop The World. Mark Manson ("Entropy") had forums for a while. Roissy and The Rational Male had extensive comment sections under each article. But nothing grew like the RooshVForum. Paul Elam ran an active Voice for Men website. There were RSD forums and many other commercial competitors.

Was it just a winner-takes-all effect, where RVF gained critical mass first, was it the moderation, was it Roosh's marketing? Roosh performed a great experiment. He completely changed the forum, and half the people stuck. There is an enormous inertia effect.

Again, blog by Roissy and The Rational Male got a lot of comments and discussion. Roosh copied that, and set up the stand-alone forum to divert blog readers. He also ran a hate-click marketing campaign. His trolling articles went viral, but 1%-10% of readers were actually interested in the forum.

Roosh's moderation also played a role. There were different types of forum readers. There were virgins who wanted a girlfriend. There were broke travel bums. There were whore mongers and big baller trolls (MiXX, G Manifesto, NASA Test Pilot). Mike CF pretended to be an experienced attorney, WestCoast pretended to be a successful financier, while MiXX, Samseau, and Matt Forney lived with their parents. Roosh suppressed discussion of P4P. So it seemed like half the members were global playboys who rolled into foreign countries with strong game to seduce women immediately, without language skills or pipelining. In addition to Mike CF, there was rapist suicider Jean Valjean https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Nathan_Larson and suicider Rawmeo.

The forum would need an active marketing plan through new articles and social media marketing.
