I'm sure we've all had this issue. You read a comic or manga that's not too popular but has great characters, and you try to display them in the battle forum and what happens? ....you get ignored lol. It doesn't matter how fair the rules are or even if you put your character against a popular character, the thread dies at around 5-10 posts.
I'm just curious as to why this is the case. It doesn't seem to matter if it's the community being unaware of the feats of the unknown character, cause I make sure I post them. Just not sure what it is.
An example would be a character named Jin Mo-Ri that I've made two threads with. The guy seems around "state" to "country" level but doesn't seem to get an ounce of respect around here, while characters that are much weaker like Naruto and Ichigo do. I'm not sure if it's cause I'm a new member or what, but I guess that's just the way it is. People constantly complain about how repetitive the battle forums are but when a brand new character is introduced, they ignore them.
