Another great idea on how to get more people to the forum.

Recommended Posts

Maybe we should make the "community forums" link displayed more prominently on the website. Right now it does not really stick out of all the other things, which are also important but are less likely to generate forum activity. Maybe at the top of the page next to the Sal's Realm banner there should be a mention of the forums. When I first came here I did not even recognize there were forums until a friend told me. That was over eight years ago, but it's displayed pretty much the same way today.

 

In short, get a greater amount of people who visit the website participating on the forums :thumbs:

I'm not sure about this so I ask.

 

Do people still use guides on Sals?

Well if no one does it's hopeless and we should just shut down. But there must be people who do, because there is a small trickle of new members coming in and I don't know how else they would know about this site.

 

I for one do, but I don't matter because I'm already an active forum participator.

 

People often are asking "How do we get more people to the site" when they should actually be asking "How do we get more people looking at the site to join the forums?"

They should be asking both, actually.

I guess, but we spend too much time thinking about that one while the other is equally important. Besides, that one is being taken care of.

Eh, yes, it is being taken care of but only in one regard. We are more efficiently updating the site and we have *not-really-top-secret* ways to update content on the site, but getting a ton more members that way is not going to happen overnight/quickly. Plus having more members would greatly increase the ease at which we can update the rest of the site.

That's why this is important, it could be done overnight :P

But we still should be asking the other question too. I mean theoretically (this isn't the case) if no one is viewing the site your idea would do nothing. If you catch my drift.

If no one uses the guides, then there would be no foul for making the link more obvious.

 

I actually think this is a super good idea. We need to make it look super fancy and such. Even if a small amount of people use the guides still, hopefully a bigger, more obvious link would attract those small amounts of people.

 

I don't think it'd be the saving grace of the forum, but it'd definitely help.

Okay, I don't think we disagree....

 

I can edit the post if it makes you feel better.

I was mostly thinking that it would be next to top banner with a link, if that is possible. It would be best to integrate it into the banner instead of sticking something right next to it.

We could do a lightbox overlay advertising the forum on a user's first visit to the site if we want something in-your-face and you-can't-miss-it. Or a popup. Or a popunder. Or a lightbox-popup-popunder combo. On every pageload. Until they join us. :evil:

Why stop there? How about inject a virus into their computer that repeatedly comes up with error message boxes that when clicked, open up the forum on their default browser!

I don't really like the idea of a pop-up seems a bit obnoxious. Instead, I think we should pull an Evony and start advertising the forums with pictures of hot women.
