Mr Dogfather is starting to get worried. For you see ladies, gentleman and people of all ages, he is starting to wonder where everyone has gone. Now I do realise that it is some stupid time in the morning and yes I am still writing this, but I don't mean now I mean in general. What has happened to the site I love to love? In the summer holidays it was booming and was a great place to come as every decent post was followed by good replies and everyone got along, well apart from a few, and everything was merry.

But then came that thing that ruined it all and has sent this site below the 2000 mark for posts within the last 24 hours, yes ladies and gentleman, it is the school holidays ended. And this wasn't a very good thing as at least 75% of the people on this site either go to school or college so hence this has created a problem for Tony and his crew.

So even though I am just that too tired to even think right now and my hands are about to drop off, well they feel like it anyway, I think I have found a way around this dilema. First you need a walrus, an egg and a match. No skip that idea that was stupid, I think the real way to attract people would be to advertise more.

The web is full of adverts. First time companies will start their money making profits from having big companies such as yourself advertising on their site. But as they are independant and are highly likely not to succeed and progress into anything massive then you are proberly better off taking your chances with the big players.

When I first discovered the great Special Reserve team and site it was I have to admit by a complete fluke. Through looking at www.totalgames.net I saw a poster saying about winning a film of your choice everyday. Now to start with I just took no notice of the stupid thing flashing at me but then curiousty (the curse of the human mind) set in and fate took part.

Thinking like every other site on the web that this place was going to be some sort of con, either that the peoples names on the winners list were all just made up or to start with that there was some ridciulous catch and it mean't ringing up a 1.50 a minute phone line. Then 5 days later I look at the winners list to see my name on it, well I know that all first winners will know what I am on about and the feeling was great, and I have been here ever since posting away until the early hours of the morning everyday that I possibly can.

Now I am one of them few people who have done what I have, came to the site and become a regular regular, if you understand what I am getting at? Basically people like pb, er-no, Sniper, FantasyMesiter, TurboNutter, Your Honour and ofcourse the rest of the lovely people on this site, who have posted more then I can count to and spend atleast 50 times the ammount of time I have on here.

Those are the people that keep this sight running as successful as it is, as without them this place is nothing, oh and ofcouse not forgetting Tony and Mr.Snuggly who like to contribute their much needed humour to the topics. So Tony my message to you even though I have now went completely off my original task is to tell you, that this place although I am fully satisfied with it, you were asking in the other thread what could be done about it, so I'm here to tell you.

You need something apart from just advertisment, even though if you were going to do more advertisment then I would suggest somewhere like www.cheatplanet.com, or an actual provider of the net such as AOL or freeserve. Now I can understand the cost of this and what really do you get out of it and that is a question that I can't answer. Personally I can't understand why you would want to give away 2 games a 1 DVD every single day. It just seems crazy to me, but if I ever win then I'll try and stop complaining.

Is there any actual profit for yourself in this competition? Do you get anything out of it? As I doubt you really do, and the people here maybe don't appreciate that as much as they should do. Now where was I? Oh yes, the improvements, something extra is needed somehow to make people want to come here and I think the main attraction for a first time user is obviously the free game, so that will needed to be mentioned, please don't think I'm patrozing you, then the cheats, prices of stock and thing along those lines need to be mentioned.

Maybe done in a flashing poster drawing you into the site, first the offer of a free game, then the possibility of 12,000 cheats, then the cheap prices. Want a free game of your choice? Stuck on a game, require assisstance? Want thousands of low priced games? Then come to Special Reserve the place where we reserve the right to make your stay enjoyable. Well something along those lines.

Thanks for reading this and any ideas that you might consider using them I'm glad I was off an assistance

No first of all they won't read it, weekend and Tony's never on and secondly there is nothing for them to read. I was just replying to your topic all of the time. [email protected]

There we are now I know the sheer demand for that is so high so feel proud.

It would be, but then this topic wouldn't keep popping to the top, you want Snuggly and Tony to read it right? our conversations are keeping it up.

Thanks but I do think that my best is yet to come, the Stan, Angels and If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time? I was gonna add this one but didn't think it was a good idea, I'll block out the main things about it.

When I was a little boy I asked my mum what should I be
Should I be SR should I be Gamep**y
This is what she said to me
Wash your mouth out son
Go grab your fathers gun
And we'll shoot the Gamep**y scum
Shoot the Gamep**y scum

Guess the missing word
