    You can't see flamers paradise if you don't have an account right? Just ban anyone who signs up with the email inter@gmail.com

    I have been discouraging them, this place doesn’t need any of those fucktards tbh.

    Too much zooming in and out and when you composite a message it goes beyond the screen and you have to manually scroll along.

    Maybe you have super human eye sight and requires no zooming in and out, or maybe I am just too old and canít live with native resolution without zooming in.

    Basically itís a workflow problem, non optimal workflow.

    When speaking about more options other than just thanking I was thinking along a similar line to:

    That's an overkill IMO. Still feels absolutely ornamental even on a platform as diverse as Facebook. I think it was just some PC bullshit so you can't "like" a post that's about a tragedy.
    Inter is an artistic venture, almost poetic. It is capable of provoking immense, unreachable joy and bitter disappointment. Itís never done by half-measures.
    For me, Inter is the opening to new worlds and courage. Itís a strong passion, a marvellous illness. You can put up with the weaknesses and admire the courage, the same way you would with a son.

    Organic growth is quite enough for a forum, I'd get the expansionism if this was a for profit webpage but it isn't. Or is it? I mean how many nosebeers and whores do you guys need?

    If anything we should have a social media presence ourselves, it'll quickly gather a following of its own and in turn could lead to some new members here.
    Fair points.

    I don't think this is really an issue for us. We don't have a lot of new members joining the forum who become active posters. In fact, over the past two years or so we have had hardly any new members join who have over 1,000 posts. In an age where forums are dying in favor of avenues like Reddit and Discord this is somewhat to be expected, but it would be nice to inject some new blood into the forum.

    Couple of thoughts, just spitballing without order of importance or anything.

    These "old" forums are pretty much the last bastion of actually functional internet. Fast loading, no shitty active flash elements, slick and clean design - emphasis on slick and clean. I would prefer it to stay this way, without unnecessary implementation of reputations/upvotes and other reddit-style cancer. When I visit Juve and Milan forums it annoys me to shit that I'm bombarded by this cluster of information whereas I have to mentally separate all the overwhelming 800x600 signature gifs, animated avatars, points, karma pounts, upvotes etc to read a simple sentence of a post.
    Why am I against upvotes and similar stuff like on Reddit you ask? The problem with these systems, functional visual aesthetic aside, is that they tend to lead to dishonesty and virtue signalling. People stop expressing themselves genuinely for fear of reaction from the community and start virtue signalling because that's what brings upvotes. That's why Reddit is an insufferable echo-chamber for the most part. Now you could say that "thanks" are not any different and I would typically agree. Ideally I would leave being able to thank someone but remove the counters and numbers. I genuinely believe that quality of discussion overall tends to improve when you remove the proverbial carrot on a stick from the equation, stops people from posting for the sake of posting instead of for the sake of providing a good argument to the discussion.

    Facebook groups mostly consist of people who I wouldn't want to interact with much to begin with - these people value short replies and "fast food" type of discussion that is rarely proofread, has metric fuckton of emojis and other stuff and generally has poor etiquette. Likewise to giving one of those people instant admin rights or whatever here - that will only lead to separation and derision from both sides. In year 2019 they are not any different in terms of raw quality from people who still comment on youtube videos.

    Smaller active community will always be better than a large community with sporadic posters. As far as growing bigger - I don't think you can manually induce this even if you wanted. Only way for that to happen is for club itself to actually achieve things by winning trophies. That's how you get new fans nowadays. Being a CL regular is a good first step luckily. I would rather reach out to the italian Inter forum and try to get some of those people here, that would likely yield better results.

    If you look at other forums, Juve's isn't that much bigger than ours, if it is at all. All other Italian clubs have smaller forum communities than ours.

    Can we have multiplayer games? Like billiard, poker, FM etc.. only accessible by forum members, that'd be fun.
