Hi everyone.

Let's not pretend we don't know what's wrong with the site - it's completely outdated and does not compete on the market. Fact (short keyword to give an example: app).
That's not what I want to discuss however.

I basically had one thought - what this site does however still have is the deeply connected community.
Which makes me come to my point..

What if every active player contacts one more inactive player? (minimum)
Starting from that a chain reaction might start up.

The site does not have to bloom up to past glory - which it will not regardless - but maybe we can fill the boards with laughter, fun, trades, perhaps small competitions. People could get more relaxed, play more trade perhaps, more occassional games being played and so on..

I don't really know how to contact any inactive player besides Yojimbo. I did it last year and he wasn't showing any signs of ever returning to the site.

The idea is not bad, but it lacks of an incentive. My point is, if those players didn't play anymore, there must be a reason, so why would they want to return if the site is at the exact same state it was when they left? So, if nothing on TTA would attract old players (let alone new ones), we must come up with an idea from outside.
I suggested before making a chat group on a cellphone app (Telegram, Whatsapp, WeChat...) , so, instead of loging in and see if there's people around or making a game and wait for hours while no one picks it up, you simply ask on the group if somebody is willing to play a few games. I never got a anwser, nor did bother to make a new topic because of this.
It's the only possible way I imagine would bring the community back, and I don't see any reason why someone could be against it besides people knowing eachother's phone number, which could be solved by simply using a chat app that works with nicknames instead of cellphone numbers (there has to be at least one).

Would Discord work for that? Genuinely asking because I've never used it, I just remember someone saying they would set up a Discord chat for TTA a while ago to replace the old IRC channel that's long since died.

Never heard of It, It seems pretty easy. I made a chat room already, here's the link. Signing Up doesn't take more than a minute.
