For those that have contributed feedback both good and bad, thank you. Much of the stuff that was mentioned I was already aware of. But I honestly do appreciate the time you all took letting me know how you felt and what you thought.
I'm still pondering what direction to take PRE. Some of the stuff that was mentioned such as possibly handing it over to someone else, changing from PR to something else, getting help, better themes, different content, etc in the past year I've tried with almost zero luck.
About 1 1/2 yrs ago I brought PRE back from the dead. I originally started with the forum software you see now. But after a year of almost nothing happening no matter what I did, I decided to switch to Xenforo. Sometimes switching forum software DOES help. And I figured, "What else do I have to lose at this point.". The software itself is fine, but didn't help or change anything. I tried a new domain, powerrangers.tv with it for the same reason of "what else do I have left to lose?".
After about 5 months I switched everything back. Those were the only noticeable changes in the past 1 1/2 years. Now if the forum had been busier none of that simply put would have happened. But that hasn't been the case and sometimes shaking things up works. This wasn't that case.
@DekaRed I agree 100% with what you've said. The times have changed since PRE was what it was. The very things that used to be unavailable years ago such as social media, streaming services, etc. are now easily available. Rangercrew completely dumped the forum format and turned into Power Rangers Now and that's worked out for them well for the moment.
PRE needs to re-invent itself. But that's a challenge given that @PrimoPiccolo I've looked into the gallery stuff like you mentioned. That's something I would have to look deeper into. Mainly because of storage space for the pictures, how they would be separated but easily available to find, and to filter out low quality images. Plus where to and how to get those images. I'll continue looking into it to see if there is something viable to work with both in terms of software and images and storage space. Right now, I just dunno.
@Mnikolic I've tried your suggestions in the past year with zero luck. But trying to find the right format is tricky.
If I want to watch PR clips I can just go to Youtube.
If I want to look for PR images I can use Google Images or countless other image sources. In some case it might take some work but isn't impossible to find what I want.
If I want the latest PR news I can visit Google News or Power Rangers Now.
If I want to discuss PR I can visit Rangerboard, PRE or countless other forums or I can on Facebook or respond on various news websites and social media sources.
If I want to watch full episodes I can buy the DVD boxsets or watch them on Netflix.
The list goes on.
I do have some ideas but I have zero clue how to implement them properly at this time. But the space is getting rather full. And people usually stick with their favorites making it harder, but not impossible, for others to compete.
I have mad respect for all 3 of you. Seriously. You've been around since the early days. And just stopping in to give your input is greatly appreciated!
