    Site Revamp.


    I know I'm not the only one who complains about this, we all know, MCTrades isn't gonna last long just by selling "Minecraft". So, what i'm trying to say, why not move from Minecraft to a multi-gaming fourms, Fortnite, Minecraft, maybe even Hytale, Roblox, League Of Legends, and maybe even a cracking sections (to post combo lists/cracked programs/etc).

    IF this suggestion actually gets accepted, the name MCTrades won't be usefull since we all know "MC" represents Minecraft, and if you were going to actually turn it into a multi-gaming fourms, you'd need a name that can merge/represent all of them at once, I don't have any ideas since I'm not creative. If any member is reading this maybe they can give an idea for idea.

    Like nulled.to or cracked.to, their fourm is about cracking, which will probably never end, since there yearly new things created for us crackers to crack. But MCTrades, Minecraft is dying, UFAs are having a shortage, alot of people are quitting Minecraft for Roblox/FOrtnite/Hytale. Even Minecraft youtubers who quit are comming back for Hytale.

    Anti you should really consider this suggestion, since I'm pretty sure you've thought about it, (or not). As I'm maybe investor and would do anything to support this site since this was my first fourms I've registered on and the same fourms where got me to this position right now and ThiccAlts also.

    Couldn't agree more. I think we can all agree that minecraft is starting to die out (especially for those of us who have played for 6+ years).

    Definitely. This site could be completely revamped and named TradeHub or something. Add more categories. Advertise to diverse communities. Otherwise this will become another forgotten forum.

    Also, think of the business opportunities.

    Hey Kobi,

    Thanks for your suggestion. People have been saying the same thing for years regarding these type of forums, the activity goes up and down, as I've been reading in chat you are all saying to simply message YouTubers. Which has always been the plan, I intend of changing the look of the website up a little in the near future (not a rebrand) before reaching out. The website has been advertised by YouTubers before and there are both advantages and disadvantages, hence why I haven't jumped straight into it.

    All of the non-mc related sections I/Build set-up previously went unused. In the far future I do see myself changing the website up a bit to allow other game services to be sold here, but until then I am more than happy with the website as it stands. I do appreciate the concern but do believe me when I say the current state of MCTrades is completely fine, the chat being as inactive as it is makes it look a lot worse than it actually is. At this point it'll just have to wait until I contact YouTubers.

    Not only do I have to find a Minecraft specific YouTuber but avoid certain people/communities. We have been partnered with people from the cracking community previously and all didn't end well. I fully intend on getting advertisement out to help us grow but it's just on hold for the time being. Trust me when I say I have no intention of letting the website die. Which is why I pay no attention to certain people who come on here to talk us down.

    I've been here for three years now, and I can definitely say the site could be doing better. Minecraft in general could be doing better. Anti, you've done an amazing job and you continue to do so. I think the forum would benefit from some generalization, less aimed towards Minecraft.

    The people playing MC grew up together, and our generation is getting older. A majority of people are either switching to new games, or completely leaving the gaming community.

    Just a little update before I move this into Pending:

    Most of the information will be posted on the April 1st announcement however you should notice me renaming many of the sections to reduce the massively "Minecraft" pushed genre. All the Minecraft accounts have been placed into a single section (Alts & OGs) and gaming accounts have been moved to the top, with new sections added for a possibility of expansion. More will be worked on regarding this however it is all I have to state about it now.
