Modern Warfare 2 forum

http://modernwarfare2.myfanforum.org

My new forum for Modern Warfare 2, the forthcoming first person shooter from Infinity Ward which is released in November.

The site also covers Call of Duty 4 and also community events between forum members i.e. online games etc.

I am expecting the influx of members to gain momentum over the next week as I have a fairly large online friend base from Call of Duty.

It's been a couple of years since i've made a forum and i've forgotten alot of things  

But i'm sure it will come back to me and I can improve the site.

BTW, my username for the MW2 site is Gosu71

Here's if you wanted a re-sized/trans'd logo pic. It looks bad here but it should look better as the main logo on your forum. If you want to use it that is.
Gosu71

Thanks alot. I'll try it out and see what it looks like and let you know  Wink

Sweet. Glad to have helped.

Things are going great at the moment.

Up to 32 users in only a couple of days since making the forum.
Gosu71

Well I didn't expect things to take off this fast. 47 users and growing rapidly, so this is definitly the most successfull MFF ive made so far.

Wow, your account was started may 23rd, so it's obvious that this is a new forum.

I wanted to see, since you said many members, I wanted to see the post count... and I see this:

Our users have posted a total of 1921 articles
We have 68 registered users

Very impressive for such a short time!
saintjordan96

Dude how did you get so many members? Interested in a link exchange?

Thanks for the compliments  Wink

Well we've moved up to 81 members and a total of 3316 articles at the time of writing.

I don't know if you've looked but we've implemented lots of Call of Duty related badges/medals for users to earn as part of their profile and lots of cool stuff in the pipeline.

I've never used the search button and HowToDoIt so much in all my time here

Just like Jordan asked, are you interested in a link exchange? If you check my forum at harsh-reality.net you can see the affiliates bar at the top.  I would be glad to add yours there in exchange for a link back.  Would prefer to have something with good exposure, but I'd be okay with less.

Ok, thanks for the offer of the exchange. I'll gladly accept  Wink

I just have a few minor glitches to fix and then we can get round to linking.

Well, what image size would you prefer so I can go ahead and make my image for it?

There's some code for a small banner.  Just give me an image and I'll add it there.  Size should be 31x88.

I've added your's to the forum footer, have a look and see if thats ok.

Here's my pic

Wow, things are going really well at the moment.

We are currently top in the top 100 Call of Duty websites! Up to 90 members and 5133 articles, all this in little over a week.

I don't know if admin can recall a few years back, but I managed to get my old Warcraft 3 clan forum onto the 1'st page of Google. Of course, like most clans we disbanded so I sadly had the forum deleted.

I've added a chat box which is really popular, not many people like them but it's good for us as we can inform each other when we are going online for a game in real time.
Gosu71

Time to get the champagne out!

We've just had our 100'th member join  

Word of mouth has mainly been part of the success. But i'm going to spread the word around on various Call of Duty sites and hope for the growth to continue.
Zudane

Sorry I didn't add it sooner, real life drove me crazy for a week.  I just added yours to the top of the front page on my forum.  I think it would be good to get a different affiliate button, since that one is a bit hard to read, and if you do then just let me know and I'll update it.

Also, just a thought, but you may want to consider adding a different favicon.  It's the image that goes with the address bar and the title of a bookmarked page.  For MYFF it's the M in the red/yellow/green circle, and on my own site it's an HR.

It's not too hard to add in, just add
Code:
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="**Image location**">
to your overall_header in the head section, and upload the favicon file (a png, with transparent background, 18x18 preferred) to the site (webpages - upload manage files), and put the address for the image where the **Image location** is.
Gosu71

Time for an update.

The forum has been up for just over 4 weeks and we have 206 members at the time of writing and a total of 18345 articles. Alot of the members were gained through word of mouth or via Twitter.

Anyone who plays Call of Duty or gaming in general, check us out.

Congrats Gosh!

Glad to see things taking off for ya mate!
Gosu71

Approaching the 250 member mark.

Making alot of cosmetic changes to the forums look i.e. clickable pics in the forum descriptions and tidier sub forums.

Once this is all done I don't see the need to tinker with the actual forums look anymore, only the medals/ribbons what people can earn in their profiles.

In light of your other post... I did a google search...

And then with quotes around it... this shows at the top of page 3:

 this thread shows up before the forum itself

Near the top of page 2 when I search.
Zudane

Well, I think that's where the rankings change - they base it on older searches, weight them differently.  So if you've searched for something that matches your forum before and then search for that your forum will rank higher.

Clickable pics in the forum descriptions are coming along nicely. We have managed to implement a nice effect (on several images at the moment) when your mouse hovers over the image.

Virtual cash is up and running and i'm working on a virtual shop full of virtual 'Call of Duty' goodies.

The chatbox has been moved from the bottom of the forum out the way. A click on the chat icon in the top right of the forum brings the chatbox out in a perfectly sized pop up window.

A really cool flash gallery has also been implemented by clicking on the camera icon in the top right hand corner of the forum. It's still under construction but the main Modern Warfare 2 gallery works really well.
Gosu71

An absolutely major 'new look' to the forum which can be seen here ->

Modern Warfare 2 forum

Also our media section is fully up and running, it really is a cool feature and can be seen here ->

Modern Warfare 2 forum Media

Our 'shadowbox' feature is really looking good and can be seen here, just click on a pic and see the shadowbox do it's tricks ->

Modern Warfare 2 forum Shadowbox feature

We also have a cool looking 'mouseover on the forum banner. Hover your mouse over it and see.

We are now up to 363 members and rising and have a sizeable hardcore of regular users.

I've set up affiliations with other large likeminded sites and this has brought in new users and opened up new avenues. I'm about to complete an affiliation with weplaycod from Twitter, which has over 1000 followers and this will generate us ALOT of new members.

At the time of writing, we are the 134th largest forum on MFF which is some achievement.
