    This Saturday (5/3/16) is good for me also.
    Would prefer it to be around 9pm but as long as it's not in the 6pm to 9pm bracket I should be good (kids will kick the shit outta me for taking the tv).

    I'm unable to do this weekend also as it turns out.
    Looks like we don't have any confirmations from the uk /Europe side anyway. Agree with outl4w that we should try and make this a more regular thing..just need to get the ball rolling

    I am good for more or less any day with exception for this weekend. Time wise it has to be 8pm GMT onwards weekdays, weekends I'm a bit more flexible. As long as I have a bit of notice I can plan around it.

    Cool el Jexicanel Jexican and PlutonPluton
    I'm gonna b online at some stage this evening which will be morning / afternoon for you 'mericans. What I will do, is check to see who is online on my friends list and if we have a few will send you all a group message to see how ur fixed. (Not sure if you are on my friends list el Jexicanel Jexican..if u on ps4 u can add me).
    Like I say If there are enough people online at the same time will send a group message to see if we can get the ball rolling on this. But I'm not going to keep doing it as I don't want to be annoying people.

    This is hard to try and sort out.
    Dates and times when everyone has different things going on, never mind the different time zones. Anyway.

    A suggestion. Maybe good maybe bad.

    One thing I have noticed is that we seem to have more people in general online at the same time on a Sunday. This is going by my psn friends list activity.
    My suggestion is this:

    Next sunday (20th march), we try and get this going.
    My time I'm suggesting (only suggesting) is 4pm uk time. ( 11am for u east coasters or 8am westies -I think?).
    I'm going to log on an hour beforehand (3pm uk time), and see who is on. I will message people to check / confirm if they are available or not and we can take it from there.
    I will also message people who have contributed to this thread this evening with a quick run down of what I'm suggesting, and to go to this thread for further info or for any questions anyone may have.
    I honestly don't know how to get this going otherwise. And I don't want to be pestering people on psn with message after message asking them if they are in or out.
    One message with a quick run down tonight. Period.
    Message will be sent to the following peeps:
    ScouseScouse NettelsNettels DROPKICKDROPKICK
    rc10mikerc10mike Barbie Is UglyBarbie Is Ugly
    PlutonPluton JesseJesse golfnuggetgolfnugget
    MeanMrMustardMeanMrMustard TuffTuff
    el Jexicanel Jexican
    Btw..we had 6 (7 including me) of the above online at the same time yesterday.

    Any problem with any of this let me know. I'm just trying to get this going so if I have missed anything obvious lemme know.

    We still have others here who haven't joined the thread but may want to partake so if you want in, now is the time to speak.
    Peace out peeps

    I'm in for this week. I just need to remind myself to go to bed a little earlier than usual.

    And has anyone agreed to the type of rules we will play under (i.e outlaw awareness, 6th sense. certain weapons/attachments). I think those two perks shouldn't be allowed, based on the history of ffa tournaments here.

    Won't be able to play for about a week and a half while I'm recovering from surgery, if you guys need to play it before then I understand. Haven't really even been able to hold my head up lately.

    Props to you for the effort in putting this together. It would be fun to tea bag codfish, but I work weekends, and Ill definitely be at work at 11am on Sunday March 20th. These days, I find it hard difficult to coordinate with my own friends let alone people from all over Earth.

    Just an idea...
    Would it be worth "advertising" this on Facebook fps page and or twitter feed?
    Just to generate interest in forum?
    The thought of 50 quid psn card may or may not lure peeps??

    Well, link to a thread like this if you want to lure people into discussions. I've been doing it for years, and it's always driven more users to any one of my sites.

    Did you know that Google uses social media as a ranking signal? Yep. So, get to work. But keep it balanced, though. Don't spam the same links over and over again. Post different links, use hashtags, and so on.

    And stop giving other news outlets your followers from your tweets. That's what you're doing. Photos and images are fine, and videos are fine, but stop giving your followers links to outlets outside of FPS247, that's how you lose people looking at your [news] articles.

    That's why it's better to write your own articles than copy-paste. There's legal ramifications, too, but that's not my point here. You need to start driving people to the site.

    And OUTL4WOUTL4W what happened to the "Share this page" line? Turn that back on and turn g+ on, too.

    You never know who is viewing your tweets, especially if you are using hashtags. You have a huge follower base with COD247tweets, but what good are they if they don't know what's going on in your site? You gotta remind them that COD247 is alive, and well under FPS247. That's what this boils down to.

    Retweets are fine, if you want to retweet official stuff, but in the end, it's not really driving any traffic to your site. And on top of that, any time a person deletes a tweet, you lose the retweet. So, you end up with an empty post. You need to realize that tweets are essentially like a thread.

    I'm just saying in general. Your users can tweet, like, recommend, +1 the threads too. It does not have to be a one-man-army thing. I see you using Twitter and Facebook, but I see you doing/using them the wrong way. I understand that you're trying to get people to like the page(s), but it's better to link the thread, allow them to decide to like it, share it, or whatnot. You want more shares and likes [to FPS247], than anything else.

    I wish I had that followerbase/like-base (facebook fanbase, whatever) and I would have made a killing. You guys are sitting on a pandora's box.

    All I was doing was stating we have 4 potential players as things stand.
