I have noticed it is relatively quiet here and my suggestion springs from this observation.

I wonder if it were possible for the moderators of this board to contact "the most well-known Western website" about X Japan www[dot]x-japan[dot]de kept by Kathrin and Chris. This site gave at least to me my first more in-depth info on X. It also has a discussion board but running on a more aged platform. Perhaps it would be a good idea at least worth suggesting to them that they as well as their visitors and users join forces with this board.

In this way, discussion about X would be less scattered, new information would be more readily and expertly shared, and the fans could communicate more expansively with each other while the networks between fans would also grow.

I also hope that this site will soon be finished as we definitely need a major English language website about X.

Well... this is something only Hypno and other moderators can decide, but as far as I am concerned, I'm rather satisfied the way things are now. It might not be too lively sometimes, but at least the discussions are quite sophisticated (uh, at least mostly  :P ) and the topics aren't as silly and fangirlish/fanboyish as on some other boards.  
But as I have said, that is only my opinion. :)

Pony rocks!

I geuss this isn't a terrible idea but from just having a quick look at their forums they seem pretty inactive, and I'm not even sure if the "owners" of the site are even maintaining it any more as the actual website hasn't been updated in some time.

When I started this forum, the x-japan.de had like 2 updates for the past year. Now they have about 4.

And the forum seems big but a bit less active than ours...

I wouldn't mind merging with anyone, but I'm really well known for my lazyness so... :P If they'd be interested I could work on it tho...

This is my administrator color.

I feel pretty ambiguous about the whole thing. I rather like the close-knit community we have going on here, but it can be slow sometimes, that's true. I suppose as long as we don't have to sacrifice anything we have now, a few more members couldn't hurt anything! :D

I wouldn't really push for it, though; if Hypno asks and they decide they want to do it, then cool, but otherwise I think we're doing fine as we are.
