I'm wondering if we need more ideas, such as comedy GIFs to encourage the younger generation onto our site. (Ducks)

This is mandatory when there is talk of gifs and/or ducks.

Yes, I was just perusing last week's unique visitor data breakdown according to age, and I was also alarmed to see that most of those visiting this site are over 25.

I'm afraid comedy gifs simply won't do it. Millennials are a whisker more sophisticated than that.

How to attract Millennials:
1. Make the site mobile/tab-friendly. That's been done.
2. Migrate the entire site to a YouTube channel; ideally, presented by a halfwit.
3. Show some cool philanthropy that resonates with the long-term values of young people; such as raising money to save the Click-Bears of Finland.
4. When YouTube views wane, migrate the entire site to Instagram, Line and SnapChat.
5. Shoot all members over the age of 30 and replace them with "Millennial-Bot", who simply generates posts from the following terms: omg, wtf, Pewds, cringe, rlly, pisses, me, off, shit, Jesus, bad, works, school, tall, f**k, dollars, you, dumb, racist, can't, perf, gay, that, ultimate, lol, not, bully, comedy.*
6. Replace the simplistic, childish Punch cartoons with clever, insightful videos of Pet Fails.

* This may have already started, albeit with a trial of "Senility-Bot".

I liked Punch cartoons when I was 17 or so. But I'm not normal.

I'm sorry, but the 2017 Edition of Dabutt's Steerage classifies you as completely normal.

Again, the easy way to be a hit with kids is to make something their parents/elders will detest.

I think that it is a complete list but of course - you will see if Millenials are interested after starting your page.

I have since ripped out that specific leaf to shove where the Sun shines not. I suppose it doesn't change its meaning though.

Taking this all too seriously?

You gotta be serious when dealing with Millennials. Millennials can spot phonies. They're very smart.
