okay basically the academy is now open for anyone to post on, as for whether the academy will be revived, well thats up to all of you.

Please post your opinion on whether we should give it another shot or perhaps bury the academy once and for all, share your thoughts.

If you wanna join a 'somewhat' active acad, here's one. But if you're reviving it, it would be good

Well i can safely say, the lack of responses is a bit disappointing, this does not seem very motivating, at this point we might bury the academy and not revive it, no point in reviving if no-one cares

you fr? I am actually suprised by how many people posted. I mean this shows people still visit and not to mention you only gave like 1 day for responses, and you got 4. And now you got 5 including me, and ebil would want to help to if he knew about this (which he probably will in a few days) and dont foget kalin. How many people did you expect to reply in 1 day? XD

But my opinion is that NA should be kept dead, it cant be revived again. I mean we could try but it will be futile.

I'm totally with Mani on this one. (Except that last part, tbh. lol)

Seriously, Phantom? Just one day and you've got this number of responses, that's pretty good. We can revive this place back by a bit of hardwork, shouldn't be that hard. Using games like YGOPRO, and using that they're re-building DN, it will help us. We can always try. I believe we've got lots of loyal members here. lol

You could 100% revive it. but i'm going to bring up a few counter arguments

There is only a limited amount of users that are willing to join academies. Back in 2013 this number was huge and spread across between like 80 academies? Now there are only 2 somewhat active Dueling Academies. GXDA and MADA and does MADA really count as a Dueling Academy? GXDA is decently active, especially at the weekends. And i'm not just saying this because I run GXDA but if you were to open another academy it could just half the amount of people in each academy. obviously you could recruit more members to bump up the numbers, but people naturally fade out as well.

I would love to affiliate the two academies if you did revive this place. just coz GXDA and NA is like from the show innit. (fuck DA they're in a tacos are good of their own) but I'd honestly suggest just joining GXDA. Unless it's that you want to be the one running the academy again then fair enough there aren't really any admin positions going. But if not the only other reason would be that you don't like are userbase (which is very possible as we have Zane Truedale / The_Unkown). Up to you.

In regards to saying that you've not had a lot of responses. people don't check emails, the only reason I even came on here was because I was trying to find Kalin's DN name to see if he used the same on Dev. why would anyone else come on here? you know what I mean. If you have an old Skype/Discord chat, message that saying to either come back on here. or to join GXDA. it's all about what you want.
-to be in an active acad
-to have the nostalgic feeling of NA and running an academy again.

the link got removed last time for advertising. https://www.forumotion.com/directory/art-culture-and-leisures/yugioh/1/point/m/desc but if you look at the leader boards of academies. we're the 2nd one down. I'd help you revive this place if you needed it as long as you didn't directly just steal our activity.

I vote for a comeback, If you want the acad to grow you have to give it time to grow. Rome wasn't nuilt in a day. But then again I'm also in and out of the acad. And I'm really happy to see it back open. So I still have to vote for a comeback.

Greetings weary traveller,

I see you have once again stumbled upon the dragon's pit. Do you wish to take your longbow and trusty steed down into the depths of the pit and face the dragon in a long drawn out battle, or continue along your journey into the next town of wealth and riches?

Yours Truly,
Sarnor Everdawn

I think Stress makes a lot of good points, and not just because he's running my academy #Lazy. If you can commit to it daily (the first 2 weeks is a grind) then go for it!

@phantom we can have a go at reviving, il help out albeit I think it's not gonna properly revive again like the good old days, but the fact that ygopro and duelling nexus is out there why not give it a go? I have a few plans in mind. Also fuck GXDA. There ain't no place like NA. But phantom before you make any rash decisions bring the old admin crew together again, me you ebil and Kalin and we will sort something out TOGETHER and wisely.

Okay so it has been decided that we are going to try and bring back the academy, we cannot guarantee results though, we are currently waiting for kalin then we can get started.

No. There's literally no point.

First of all, the majority of the yugioh base and members in general have transferred to discord. There is very little reason to join an academy outside of the title really.

Second of all, the management of this academy has remained consistently poor. Kalin and Phantom, you really aren't good admin material, which is also displayed with the amount of times this has died. I don't care if you want to blame it on "cancerous users" or "the users were inactive"; is it not the responsibility of the admins and higher-ups to keep interest high and users in control (even if that applies to me)? If you fail to do that, then there's little-to-no reason to have you as admins and I doubt you'd just quit. Thus continuing the cycle of bad admins and giving no "breath of fresh air" for the academy. It's the same over and over, it's literally just a cycle.

Third of all, we just aren't the same people anymore. I'm sure everyone's come here with different thoughts than what they left with. It's just how things happen. Things change. Nobody comes here with the same feelings they once had. The only reason people would still come here is for it once was, it's literally just a shell now. I just don't see the point.

Overall, I don't really care. I thought I'd write this semi-essay as a last way to express my concern for something I was consistently on for 2 years, but if you want to have a go then just ask yourself one question:
What's changed from last time to ensure success this time?

members from the ygo base have not "transferred" to discord, they just joined the discord chats. That doesn't necessarily mean they wont join an academy. How is is there little reason to join an academy? I understand most people wont join but people will join and it can make the academy active again. Back when DN was alive, most people joined DNF but that didnt stop them from joining academies.. its the same situation.

You gave no reason as to why the management of the academy was poor. All you said was kalin and phantom are bad admins with no reasoning really. Also they didn't particularly blame it on "cancerous users" or "users that were inactive". Where did you get that from? When DN died NA was bound to die because there was no reason to stay/join NA. So members started leaving and it got inactive, how is it even their fault? Almost every academy died. Also, how are admins not responsible to keep interest high and users in control? thats one of the primary jobs of an admin. Admins have to be concerned with this in order to maintain activity in the academy and why would admins not control members when they get out of hand? Should admins allow havoc? that is just common sense.  Also, your explanation of this "cycle" and "fresh of breath air" lacks sense since you stated "if you fail to do that", and you didnt even state what "that" is, only thing you mentioned is that "it NOT the responsibility of the admins and higher-ups to keep interest high and users in control"  and that kalin and phantom are "bad admins." so your vision made no sense.

Yes, we arent the same people, but some people want to keep the acad going and are motivated, and since ygo is apparently getting "lit" again, I think there is a good chance NA can revive. Since the only reason it died in the first place was because ygo was dead. So there really is a point.

"What's changed from last time to ensure success this time?" ---> nothing significant is changing, there isnt a need for much of a change, NA was always successful but the reason it died was because DN died, its simple, you are just overthinking it

Also,

"Overall, I don't really care. I thought I'd write this semi-essay as a last way to express my concern for something I was consistently on for 2 years,"

^^^
you "dont care", yet care enough to write an essay to express your "concern?" Contradiction much? There is no shame in admitting you do care. lmao.
