Guide needs to be redesigned. I can tell you several things that make this website outdated.

1. The forum is very slow, and needs more moderators.

--Idea to fix--

There are services that will electronicly moderate websites, and you can also program websites to do that.
--
2. The website is not secure
3. The chat room isn't open enough. I know Uncle Andy already addressed that in his email, but...
4. The website is not up to modern snuff, so that makes it slow.
5. There isn't an app.
6. The website isn't activly advertized, so the Guide website is not only dying, but they aren't trying to keep it from dying!
It is mentioned at the top corner of the magizine (I know, I didn't spell that right) where the date is, but they need to start saying things like:

"For more stories like this, visit ________________"
"To see the rest of this story, visit ______________"
"To see more cool facts, visit _____________"

Stuff on the line of that.

7. If no one new is joining, and current members are not going on the website as often, why should people want to stay going on?

Does anybody agree with me?

I agree. I also think that we Guidesters can help fix the problem, at least a little. We have friends, right?

Also, I would love to know how to actually get the attention of the BIG MODS. And the editors. And possibly UA.
Yo, I‘m not really on this site much any more. I miss y’all and I’ll hopefully be more active some day.

I think you can email them. (I have never emailed them but I know others have)

But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up on wings like eagles,
They will run and not grow weary,
They will walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 :)

UA like the superhero high school in My Hero Academia. What do they have to do with us?

Yes, I agree that the Guide website is dying in a sense (even I get on here everyone once in a while), but I don't believe it needs to be marketted.
I believe that you have good intentions when you say this, but in my mind, when I hear marketted, I think of big corporations or people that just want your money, and despite the fact that I get on here very seldomly, I don't want Guide Magazine to become that.
Like I said, I know you have good intentions, but those are just my thoughts

NO. NO MORE EMOJIS. I ALREADY HAVE TO DEAL WITH A MILLION EMOJIS ON MY PHONE. WE HAVE ENOUGH EMOJIS. I WILL LEGIT DELETE MY ACCOUNT IF GUIDE STARTS GOING EMOJI CRAZY

I think the site could use a few improvements. Like, make it an app. Especially one that works on my iPhone. That would be great. Blush and Oops are the exact same emoji. The chat room, last time I checked, was kinda hard to get to from here. It’s hard to post stuff in the Talent Showcase. This website isn’t exactly the easiest thing to navigate on a phone. BUT THAT’S OK. I cannot express how much I hate the idea of completely redesigning our website. This is my online home. You guys are my internet family. The thing we could use most is a few more members and a few more mods. I’ll do what i can to advertise.

When I say marketing, I don't mean for money. I mean just directing people to the website.

Agreed, a wow emoji would be cool.

Since I got here (in 2014), we've been mentioning people like this: @CherryBomb, @Quirky, etc. But it doesn't do anything lol. It would be a helpful feature to add.

Time to hibernate again.

They should definitely update the forum. It just feels so old and sometimes laggy tbh.
