Maybe you used to like a certain section of the forums, or it should interest you - but it doesn't. What is it missing?

Let's try thinking about it like this:

"I would visit the Tomb Raider 2012 section more often if..."

"I would visit or post more often in the Fan Artwork, Movies, and Writing section if..."

"I would participate (as an entrant and/or voter) in the competitions section if..."

And so on and so forth. What would encourage you to visit or post more in certain sections? Here's a list in case you've been ignoring a few so long you forgot they existed :p

Tomb Raider Series
Digital Experience
Tomb Raider Modding
Tomb Raider Motion Pictures
Community Forums
General Chat
Arts and Entertainment
Debate and Political Discussion
Mature General Chat
Video-Games, Consoles and Related Discussions
Fan Artwork, Pictures, Movies and Writings
Competitions
New Member Introductions, Birthdays and Congratulations
Technical Support
International Forums

* I've greyed-out a few of these because they are basically dead/static sections, IMO. The others still have potential for growth.

I would visit/post in the arts section more if we had more box-art competitions. Those were always my favorite.

I had one semi-planned out some months ago. I thought it was pretty nifty, too. I dunno why I never started it up. :'/

That section used to be so delightfully chaotic in the months before the game's release. :')

Like how when everyone got mad when 360 owners got the game early and how everyone lolwut'd when Gamespot accidentally gave the PSN game away for free. :'D

You would think that people would be planning co-op sessions here, but, not so much. It's a mystery.

I would visit the TR Films section more if there was anything to actually discuss, which there isn't atm. I'd also visit the Modding sections too if I was into all of that stuff. The debate section as well, but there's usually subjects which I have no idea what they're about, tbh. xD

I'd post in OC more, if there was an actual conversation, between other members than the usual 5 that post there, and that wouldn't have BrandonFlowers and his fetishes.

Also, the Arts/Entertainment subforum, if there weren't only conversations about Gaga, Minaj or Llama del Rey. I'm still waiting for someone to bump the Paramore thread.

Perhaps start a conversation about something you find interesting?

I would post more in the Tomb Raider series sections if there were threads I find interesting, or news.

I'll agree with that, I don't understand why people complain about how they never see anything they find interesting to discuss. If they feel that way, maybe they should try posting something they would find interesting or try to start convos with other people instead of standing on the side-lines having that outlook.

Usually the one who wants to start a conversation about something revelant in a way or another gets completely ignored.

From what I've seen in the last months in OC, 90% of the people who post there only talk about Gaga, Minaj, porn or other "hot" celebrities.

I think a lot of posts tend to get lost in OC fast -- be persistant :p Bring up something you want to talk about if those things aren't something which interests you.

@Nate ~ Yeah definately, and I think you've made a good point about starting conversations with other people -- I think talking to new people or people they wouldn't normally speak to would make for a change in conversation/routine if topics were becoming too boring.

I would visit the TR Reboot section more often if I didn't hate everything I've seen about that game so far. This actually makes me kinda sad too. I remember taking part in the "road to TR Underworld" stage of TRF and it was quite amusing.

The TR Reboot section now is a constant reminder that the TR series is over for me. :(

About the other games' sections, I guess I would participate more often if I replayed the games more often, which I haven't in the last couple of years. One of these days I really should do a full replay of the whole series.

I would post in the new TR section if there was new info and less of the same threads kept popping up. I'm sure things will start picking up next month or a month before E3.

i have never been good at starting conversations. It's like walking in to a room full of people and just start talking about something very different that the current conversation...it's just weird.

I'll agree with that, I don't understand why people complain about how they never see anything they find interesting to discuss. If they feel that way, maybe they should try posting something they would find interesting or try to start convos with other people instead of standing on the side-lines having that outlook.

well, if and when people actually come into OC that i like to talk to, then i can do that, but it isn't easy for me to just invent an entirely new conversation, especially when everyone else is talking about a different subject. Easily half of the time the conversations involve at least one person that doesn't even like me, so i see no need to start a conversation with them.

just remember, not everyone in here is as outgoing as other people tend to be.

Usually the one who wants to start a conversation about something revelant in a way or another gets completely ignored.

I have seen that happen more than once.

From what I've seen in the last months in OC, 90% of the people who post there only talk about Gaga, Minaj, porn or other "hot" celebrities.

that can get tiresome day after day after day (for weeks on end)

I would post in the new TR game section if I weren't so pissed about changing crap that won't improve the Game.

I would post in the Entertainment and Video Game sections more frequently if people wanted to discuss things specifically and not in GENERAL. I HATE GENERAL THREADS.

I'm probably going to come across as a stick-in-the-mud but I don't see much point in rehashing what's been gone over a few times already... with any game(s) there's really only so much that can be discussed. Once in a great while I will see something 'new' but not often.
