I’d agree with that. Also, another reason why the blogs don’t post anymore is the fact that the only news that’s up is the fact there’s only new hats. For the past two months, the game was only about new items. (Such as Faces, Hats, and Gear). A contest popped out in the middle of it, but wasn’t very appreciated. (No Cash Prize! Seriously! For all that crazy work!) A maximum from getting Top 10 is getting more Youtube Subscribers, but who cares, though?

A faily odd thing is that they still maintain the Fan Site Develloping Kit, yet they have this “no offsite rule”. They conflict each other right? Yet, both made by the admins.

Because of the fact I haz crisis, like everyone, I have difficulties posting in the end of school year. Now it’s the end, I can re-post. The problem is, what is there to post? Interviews are abused, almost every known player has been interviewed, news is too common the past two months, all based on Catalog Releases, and of course, there’s no user activity to our site.

However, I was thinking ’bout this the time the Roblog vanished. At the time, you planned for us to do a Newspaper, so that the Admins would feature. In it, would feature the link to our blogs. It never saw the light of day, though. My idea was to fusion the four major blogs into one,  because competition dosn’t help. (ESPCIALLY with no income of visitors.) Because of this, we might post faster, fusion ALL the visitors into ONE site.

The result of this could be something like a site called TSSZ News. (See it.) I was really amazed at the speed of posting, so fast they would even do “breaking news”.

Another idea I though of (not so great, though. Or maybe better?) is that we organize a monthly Fan Site Conference. We could always ask permission to the admins. The conference would be an “award” like place, every month, nominees would be elected to then have the “best of” site. Admins would then post in the results on the Roblog, under the form of a TRAVELOGUE! (I know! We need thoses BADLY!) If this, however, make through, fansites, may still get traffic.

Let’s hope the sites can still live. Roblox News and The Roblox Times are dead from a long time. We are zombies, though, waitin’ for a rocket to hit us so we can respawn. ’nuff said.

PS: I would also blame my birthday coming soon, and the fact I’m building Mt. Zeta, for the GRSH.

  1. Reading this made me sad.
    Back when there was still a ROblog, the fansites on it got some 10,000 views per month (I’m an administrator on ROBLOXjuice, if you’re wondering how I know this). Now traffic to fansites has lowered to about 1,500 views per month. :/

  2. I think that what we need to to do are articles for the player. Tips and tricks for both building and playing games, and of course, reviews of the most popular games.
