I appreciate your input Nowai. The way I see it, there seem to be a lot of "old" members already. Which is why I would like to focus my efforts on bringing in new members.

Another point I would like to make, is that some of the old members might get busy with their own busy lives or get tired of playing etc. And without new members, the total number of members will decline over time. A healthy game should have a "flow" of new and old members.

p.s. What "successful-ish" game were you a part of Nowai?

Oh yes, that is very true. Without a constant flow of new members replacing those who left, the forum activity will continue to decline. But in order to bring in new members, we kinda need old members to shed light on the good times and the happy memories. I don't know why but new members tend to trust the older ones because - they have experienced the community environment and have better knowledge of all the 'darker' corners.

Also, I don't feel comfortable with sharing that information publicly due to a dispute which occurred nearing the end of June 2018 causing the whole team to suffer. I'll message you the name and link if you are interested however, for all I know, you might enjoy playing it because mmmm the community is lovely! Or you might have already tried it out, either way I'm now sending a PM your way (:

Personally, I think that we can focus on bringing new and old faces back to the community. Many of the older members have left for various reasons ranging from life in general or FH drama. If we can show how FH has changed in a positive way, then maybe some older faces will return(which quite a few have already returned). However, I think as a community, we can reach out to newer members so long as we keep the social media advertisements active. Instagram had an account for years and suddenly went inactive(whether it was ran by official staff or not, it still worked). There were many people that would inquire about the game when I had posted it on my old, personal art account. People even asked if I had an account to spare just in order to join. Overall, I think that we can make this happen by working as a team and remaining active. ♥

Here is a rough draft of the article I am writing:

Feral Heart is an animal MMORPG with feline and canine characters. The player gets to create their own character and explore various maps that make up the game as well as talk to other players. Many people play games together too.

====History====
Feral Heart was created by KovuLKD in ___. Not much is known about him other than he lives in Singapore. On ___ he disappeared and took the source code for the game with him. Nobody knows why he left the game or what has become of him.

====Maps====
===Lonely Cave===
A cave where no other players appear. Your own private home of sorts. It has a single den and signs with the rules and useful game info.

===The Grounds===
Most people tend to hang out in this savannah map and chat.

===Cape of Distant Worlds===
A map where it is always night. It connects the Lonely Cave to your own private maps.

===Fichno Tunnels===
A series of tunnels that connect The Grounds to Cherika Vally and Kibou Ridge.

===Eastern Pass===
A rugged mountainous region that connects The Grounds to Kiwimba Beach and Bonfire Islands.

===Seaside Grove===
A nice beach.

===Cherika Valley===
A large valley that is great for playing hide-and-seek.

===Kibou Ridge===
A beautiful snowy mountain range with valleys, dens, a stream, some campfires, and even a single glowing crystal. This map was created by Lady_Alizaran. The cave paintings in the dens have inspired various players to come up with lore about the game itself.

===Kiwimba Beach===
A beautiful beach that also has some waterfalls.

===Bonfire Islands===
A group of islands that have waterfalls and campfires.

====Features====

Hello! The wiki looks great so far! It's very creative!

What I think you should do is take a look at one of FeralHearts wikis and maybe start getting some ideas but without copying it! I hope it helps you :)

Thanks for the idea Flurr! I may be able to take note of things like the date the game started etc. from reading the existing wikis. Sadly, I'm afraid that most of the other info is very outdated. Especially the map info.
