Hi all,

Wanted to share some feelings i've been having lately. I'm sure webby could provide some quantifiable statistics to what i've been feeling.

This forum isn't growing, and it isn't growing because it isn't innovating.

- I registered for this site in early 2008, and it literally looks the exact same. That's an issue.

- Not once have I ever thought to myself to look at content on the front page.

- The front page largely looks the same as it did 6 years ago

- Without meaningful content, you're relying solely on community to attract people. FF was innovative for its time, now its in a cluttered market.

- What is our market? A hostile environment to discuss football. These weren't the norm when the site was created and was booming; today, not so much.

How can we differentiate ourselves? What should we be doing differently?

The forum is still growing and more active than ever. Some forums are less active, but overall the forum is busier than ever.

This weekend saw the most visitors ever for a non-draft or free agency period. During the KC - Den we saw over 1800 simultaneous visitors. Last night after the NE - CAR game we had over 1600 simultaneous visitors. Both records for this time of year. Also, since you joined in 2008 the forum has doubled in membership.

The home page looks similar to the past, but there is new content added regularly with current information on the 2014 draft, prospects, free agents, mocks, news etc.

Thank you for your feedback, but I'm not looking to make large wholesale changes to the site. My goal is the some that it has always been. Make this the best forum on the web for football discussion.

If you have any more comments or questions, send me a PM and we can discuss it some more.
