What would a Bond fan site need in order to get you to visit on a daily basis?

Recycled AP articles related to Bond? Original articles relating the films and books to current issues? Original interviews? A 24/7 live feed of Helga's bedroom?

Any ideas?

For me it's interesting people with a unique and diverse look at Bond. This site still has a few, otherwise I wouldn't be here.

News articles relating to James Bond, really. Stuff relating to past/present cast members, the new Bond film, new reviews of books and films - just new content.

Are you thinking of starting a fan site?

Contributions. People who don't contribute are the main problem of any forum or society. They consume but don't produce. Spongers and 'the entitled' in other words.

That's the problem with this forum. Far too many lazy cunts who read but don't post. Or if they post, don't post enough: you can't visit every month or so, make a single post and still expect the forum to be there when you next fancy a look. Forums need support and loyalty. That said, if the posts are frequent but entirely self-serving and mad - like those of some ex- BaBs members - then that won't help either. Finally, forums shouldn't have too much moderation, but the mods must carry big sticks. There should also be a door policy. Mainly though it's the old adage - use it or lose it.

BTW, Helga won't help any forum in the longterm. She's overexposed - we've all been there, done that. Girls need a bit of mystery.

I think an ongoing effort to gather news, links and articles (even if its recycled), over time accumulating enough volume that it ends up becoming the one stop shop for all info Bond and is always growing and multiplying the material that can spark debate....the community then kind of follows (albeit by no means guaranteed a good one as imdb often proves).

While I agree with Ambler re contribution the other aspect is new blood or new ideas, you do need a casual presence to weave in and out of the regulars - a regular set of contributors is a double edged sword on the one hand you have a reliable community but on the other you can become too much of a 'clique' (to the extent you exclude other) and internally you do get to the stage where you already know exactly the answer you'll get to anything you may ask or note.

I think engaging, thought-provoking material would lead to quality discussions.

But, there's the major problem that Ambler mentioned: the people that consume but don't produce. A fan site could feature some of the best articles on the subject of James Bond, but if no one bothers to carry on a discussion about them, then it doesn't really matter. In that case, you'd be better off scrolling through Bond news on Facebook.

I had the idea of collecting articles (probably on a bi-monthly basis) from Bond fans and bloggers for a "main site" and then creating a companion site (a forum) where the articles and any other general topics could be discussed by registered members.

It'd be interesting, but could prove to be more trouble than it's worth.

Didn't we once float the idea of having a blog or something attached to this forum?

Sound idea Brown. Like Ambler says we need more do-er's than whatnot. I don't mind contributing. Last time I did something about OHMSS it got yanked. Student papers.
