    I share the numbers of the forum on a yearly basis.

    Here are 2014: The Orange Room 2014 in numbers | The Orange Room - Lebanon's number one discussion forums

    And 2016: The Orange Room 2016 in numbers | The Orange Room - Lebanon's number one discussion forums

    As you can see, numbers are declining.

    However, this year is much better than last year, i think our numbers for 2017 will be better than 2016.

    How do you think you can help? The forum is an open book for you :)
    Are you guys following a certain business development strategy?

    Also why isnt orangerababa.org being marketed more heavily :D :D
    ithink @eLad gave u agem there

    for example was the new app an idea to increase visibllity or just a user easeof use tool?

    As for increased exposure I was thinking something similar to what @Isabella suggested, AMA with some relevant people, or help with a marketing campaign via facebook or other lebanese sites.

    The make up of this site is not diverse enough. This is a direct result of its roots being an FPM site and many miss-steps, before you took over mostly, in fostering bias and aggressively managing content. My best recommendation to grow this site is to make it more diverse and growing participation from all political views.

    I wouldn't have named it the orange room for example.
    youare talking of a very different era, this forum was a much needed free discussion place back then for FPMers

    Of course :) just saying a lot of these roots persist. Thus the name :)
    Point being it would be best if it was more diverse

    i really dont htink they can sell anything about users directly because our profiles are pretty much anonymous and have nothing attached to them that can be sold.

    As for the content, dont really know how relevant it is

    Best way to make money off this site is to increase users and traffic and sell ads. Increasing users and traffic in my opinion can be done if it is viewed as a neutral and unbiased place and if it brands itself that way, and makes it it's top mission.

    Another way to make money is to create a political blog section with minimal editorial oversight. Become both a political forum and a political blog.

    I suggested all of this and more to X in the old days. Instead he gave it to tayyar.org and we all know what followed...

    Okay random example, trending topics might be useful for an advertising company to capitalize on. I know there are better sources for this info than a forum, but still.

    This is a random example. You know if you have sold information to third party clients or not, regardless of what example I give or have in mind specifically. As a privacy conscious user, I was curious if you do or not.

    You have not given a direct answer (if you wish to do so).

    You see the ads pop up don't you :)
    Doesn't mean he is selling information, he is selling ads on the site of course as he should. Unless it becomes a subscription only site.
