    What are some tips you have to bring traffic back to this site. I'm trying to make sure we get battles posted here again. But it won't help without discussions The other sites are not as good as this used to be. So how do we get people who didn't transfer over to be interested. And those who transferred over what can be done to check this site again.


    Better relationship with the league owners and this site owner could help Not sure of any connections

    It's hard because a lot of the league staffers and a few battlers went with that whole movement. But we could definitely try and brainstorm and think of some stuff. I miss how this side USED to be @FeedMeMore

    Decided to visit the site again for the first time in half a year

    The design sucks, it looks out dated

    You guys should close this section and accept this section will never be what it was. Noones going to post here when they see so many threads with 0 replies. I think as far as battling, this isn't the site to go to anymore you guys should just forcus more on the rap music side

    What other battle forums are there, out of curiosity? I haven't posted here in a couple years. I was here when it was emceebattles.com back in the day.

    I liked that the GRBs came back...did my best toi check those...I think why most people don't come back was the hostility from the mods after the great divide.. I'll do my best to continue posting here

    But why drop it. People form forums that gain popularity from nothing. We might not be able to get old heads back but we can try and build from the ground up.

    I do think the owners need to communicate with the leagues more. Maybe sponsor an event or at least a big battle

    Or choose a new upstart league to make this there spot to discuss.



    What about an online rap battle tourney.

    When they changed the design here most people didn't like it, so another site was made and all the battle fans went there. This site won't let you say the name of that site though

    Why promote an unoriginal site that basically a recreated version of this site.

    I check the other site and I don't really see what makes it so updated looking in design.
    I feel it was nothing more than a power trip to some

    The thing that you ignorantly and arrogantly refuse to accept is that that "unoriginal" site had a design people were far more used to. You guys had an opportunity to change it back to the way it was but didn't and far more people prefer the way it looks over there.

    Can someone delete all my posts and ban my account if there's only 3 people that post here and FMM is a moderator? Thank you.

    Offer contests, put your signature link in other forums to have those members visit it. Spread the word via friends and family, and try to get as many posts as you can on here.

    Why are you acting like you don't know what went wrong?

    You changed the design (and the rep system) and people hated it.. there were 30 threads every day for weeks telling/asking/BEGGING you to change back te design.
    Y'all didn't and everyone left.. simple as.

    And after that weirdo mod went on a rampage nodoby even wants to come back.

    Because IT ISN'T. It's the "original"/classic design everyone was asking for. FFS.

    BVA were the first to leave this wasteland, and everyone else followed suit.

    if you're not content with the sites made by craig and erik, come to TRN. we've got a battle rap forum too.

    i own B.A.R.S. Battle League, and i still post everywhere, i had no personal issues with anyone when the switch happened, but a lot of it was some power trip shit from what i know of it. but i think a lot of battle rap fans feel like battling is the most authentic form of rapping there is, and just the fact that the bva isn't the 1st thing on the list is a turn off somewhat (to me even), i know its stupid, but its like a slap in the face of battle rap, cause everyone didn't leave.
    neway, the site does have a bad design tho i think, its a forum, w/e, but the media area, and the other few links look kinda lame, idk how i would suggest u hook it up, so i guess the (best and simplest) advice i would give you if this was a consultation would be that u have one of the best domain names in history, like ever, throw some money out there for some real promo, fancy up the site some, add some other aspects to the site in general, get some merch, get some pictures of some bad bitches in said merch, circulate said pictures around the net (#adsense ads, etc.>>>), n turn this shit into a real like brand brand.

    (and dont try to delete this post and take credit if/when this works either nigga!) lol

    You guys didn't lose traffic because of the design, you lost traffic because otbva has the bootlegs but I remember when I used to post here u guys didn't.
