[01/16/11 08:15:20P] <Kage> I'm tired of you overstepping your authority, and you can get pissy all you want, but I've told you this before, and this will be the last time I tell you: You are Lead Mod, not "Community Manager" or whatever. You oversee all mods of the site and forums, and do not have authority (any more) to hire or fire devs

We did have a thread about satcom hacking, which everyone trolled the OP on (granted, yes, he probably would have never understood how to do it, that's not the point). We had a chance to talk about a really neat topic that other people have actually done successfully. I attempted to get the topic going by posting to real resources about it, nobody cared.
I click on the "new threads" post which is mostly low-level help requests, directly related to the missions, or just irrelevant to my interests. If you want to attract people and start a cohesive community where people like me regularly contribute, you need to generate better content and discussions.
Hacking is a huge topic, and the community has really cool interests. Lets talk about 2600 articles we read, lets talk about Off the wall podcasts, lets talk about that recent php exploit in greater detail -- where we figure out what actually causes the floating point to crash php. If you want a community, content needs to be king. All this bullshit about the forum skin is secondary, and yeah it does look like shit, I've blocked the "woah man I'm 14 years old and graffiti is sw33t" graphic on top using adblock, I don't want to visit this site if someone else can see my screen because it just looks embarrassing once you're in the professional arena.
Copying defcon isn't the answer either, I post there and that community isn't about hacking it's about a hacker convention. People who goto the con like to meet up there and chat, and they have a very strict "no bullshit" policy that keeps llamas out. Be careful about who you copy if that's what you're going to do.
Content is king.
Stop looking like a kids site.
Worry about other stuff once you can address these two in that order.
