OK, here are some suggestions that could bring the forum back to life.

  • WYSIWYG editor for posts. Seriously, what year is this?
  • Mobile version of the forum.
  • SEO related functionality
  • Close the friggin' IRC

Ad first 3: This forum is based on SMF, there are plugins for these, just use them
Ad 4: It would be nice if even a casual conversation was back on the forum, it would bring some activity on the forum and help with the resurrection.

Ok, just checked and there is a possibility to setup use of WYSIWYG in the profile, but this is something that should be by default. And it should work for replies, as well.

Hi Akenu.  Those would be small changes.  For a little while now the staff have been working on more comprehensive improvements, to be rolled out when they are ready.

When they are ready. And what kind of timeline are we speaking?

How about changing the forum name a little to, lets say, 'Occult Veritas', as an example; for it is not obvious that it is an occult forum with just the name 'Veritas'; at first I though I might be a political forum.
And, when doing an internet search, 'Veritas' is less likely to come up because the word 'veritas' on its own has no occult connotations.

Not a bad idea. If would be actually enough to change the meta description and add some meta keywords, so far the only thing here is
<meta name="description" content="The Veritas Society - Index" />[/size]
[/size]
[/size]There is definitely some settings in SMF CMS which deals with meta tags and keywords.
