I just thought of another idea.

It does help to send out newsletters to all your members from time to time reminding them to check out the forum again. I find that peoples' attention on the internet is fleeting. They might sign up for your forum today and forget about it by tomorrow. A nice reminder sometimes brings a few people back.


I mean, sending out a newsletter could help. I am not sure if just doing it is the right away or having people sign up would be the better way to go (to prevent accusations of spam).

I am not sure about PHPBB (The forum software this site uses) but I know Vbulletin allows you to send out newsletters to all members.

This is a good idea, I just don't know how it would be received by users

Lately I've begun to wonder....

If you post a thread on this forum, will anyone hear it fall? :P

Sadly I think the answer to that question is no

So am I. I am advertising the site where I can. I am posting where I can. Not sure what more I can do either

There might not be much to do and that's OK. None of the veterans is losing sleep over this, it's just a RPG message board.

Although if you really want to try, women issues seem to be all the rage lately.

You could always start a thread entitled "Rape culture in roleplaying". :shifty:

Oh, can I play?

Thread titles:
+4 Transvaginal Ultrasound Wand of Fireballs

How to find Mr. Wight

Glass Ceiling or Glass Floor, you decide!

:shock: You're quite good at this! How about:

Roleplaying advocacy in elementary school: why Poison'd will save the hobby

Great idea to reach new demographic: Mein Kampf adventure gamebook

and the classic:

We need more posters at the Haven


:whistle:

CD, nothing gets a response around her like EOH (End Of Haven) threads.

Although...

Obamacare and the Charm Conservative Justice spell

Women's Rights in a Medieval Setting (that actually could be a good thread)

And even more topical:

Easier to get Gay Married in Ancient Greece or Massachuesettes?

Ok, Ok Thengel, I get the point.

I was trying to come up with ideas to get more people here because I like this site but I can see my effort is not appreciated so I will not go on/post about this any further.

My apologies
