I rarely visit the forums any more, but I have noticed that the two DYOM sections look basically dead. The Designers Lounge gets nowhere near the amount of posts it used to. I can barely see any of the prior-V7 designers missions any more either. All I see is couple of new guys creating topics that have basically no replies.

It just seems that DYOM on GTAForums is on the decline. When V7 come out, I thought that it would make me want to design and bring DYOM back in the popular zone. It did for a bit, but it now seems that it is worse than ever.

Well, this is just my opinion. Thoughts? Agree, disagree?

I would hardly know, I only joined just after v7 beta was released. I hope not... confused.gif
We've brought back mission contests, (a.k.a Mission of The Week) so hopefully that will make it more active.
And we're currently in the process of making the 4th Multi-Designers project called Dream Hunters

I rarely see Doublepulse active any more. And the last multi-designer project we had, there were like 100 posts in the first 2 weeks. It was really active. With this one, its been up for over a month and it just unactive.

I strongly agree with you. Few of us, still active designers are trying to keep it alive but it is very hard, because there are not a lot of people left here in DYOM therefore we nearly get no feedbacks. Back in the day when v5 was present DYOM was so active, and now when so many possibilities are now made possible in v7, it is no longer active.. If they want it to stay alive, they must make a DYOM version for GTA IV, otherwise it will die.

Its totaly wrong....Dyom isn't dying
new users are joining every day.
The rate of mission uploading on dyom is getting slow because of users make mission but no one get feedbacks in comments. So I think users only want motivation on making mission.
I have a Idea to resolve this problem if someone interested to know about my idea PM me

There isn't whole lot of inspiration going around or many old designers around. I don't wanna say it is completely dead though..But it is pretty damn low activity compared to last year. As for the IV DYOM, I remember hearing the actual reason why it was not being made from Dutchy, but do not remember it at the moment. If I find it, I will post it.

As for the new Multi Designer Project, which I am leading along with Zizo and Secro. It is agreed that it was not completely ready and is still not completely ready, when it was posted. It is in a much better position, knowing we got atleast a few missions done for it. I am not going to give it up though. Just give it time.

As for me being not active tounge.gif . I guess that is kind of true haha. But I am still here biggrin.gif .

Yeah, you're alking about this post. I though that was the final word about DYOM for IV. Looks like I was wrong.

I've seen a lot of people saying "DYOM is dead and that sucks", but IMO, DYOM was very active because people were designing (duh!) and they didn't care about anything else that publish their missions and have fun playing other missions. In this moment everyone is too busy to design (or that's what they say).

I think that it's too early to say that DYOM is dead, but is very inactive compared to the last year confused.gif

All things Depends on Controversy..........

Lets see a short Documentary on MOTW Contest.

MOTW#1
Theme- Free Theme
No. of Participant- 8 users
Total votes- 22


MOTW#2
Theme- Horror
No. of Participant-- 5
Total votes-- 11


MOTW#3
Theme-- Robbery
No. participant-- 5
Total Votes-- 12


MOTW#4
Theme-- Gang Wars
No. of Participant-- 4
total votes-- 13


MOTW#5
Theme-- Racing
No. of participant-- 2
Total votes-- 20



MOTW#1 got Highest Votes because its the first MOTW and the theme is perfect for everyone.
MOTW#2,MOTW#3 and MOTW#4 get very low votes because people are not no more interested in MOTW(Its not the basic reason).Themes are GOOD so why MOTW#2,#3,#4 doesn't get more popularity.............................................................. The Reason is Promotion to attract users toward MOTW...and Now you can easily understand this by the example of MOTW#5.

In MOTW#5,
Chip,T13,Alokik, started a fight which works like a Controversy to attract users and No. of participant is only 2 but Total votes are 20. HOW? think on It!
are you thinking that Missions are best in MOTW then you are little wrong because previous missions of MOTW contest are best...


Well GUYS this just my thinking are you agree or not?

Another problem is that all those Well Known Designers. After becoming MODS or Very Popular they stop designing. Look at Zizo & Doublepulse! Jimmy Stopped for a long time. now he is working on Swiping Kings: The Prequel ( I Think) & LeonCJ He also stopped now he is working on One Leaf Left.......wait mercie_blink.gif ...............Never mind this post & forget it.
