  • Beating a record! Need some help.

    I am constantly seeing posts here for ways to increase membership, so I wanted to add a way that I have not seen anyone do yet. Here is an email that I just send out to my 450 members last night.

    Isn't this just an advertising method? I don't think it's allowed here.

      Im sorry. I didn't mean it as one. I just haven't seen this sugestion done before.

      Now true, it was a way for me to advertise with my current members.

      I guess it was just easier for me to cut and paste the letter I sent out than to describe what I was trying to say.

      I will edit out the letter.

        the idea is pretty basic, and I am not sure why I haven't seen it before.

        I have sent out a letter to my 450 members to all show up at the forum at the same time in an effort to break my "Most members onine" stat.

        My reason for doing this is the theory that popularity begets popularity.

          Advertising for your vB-community shouldn't be disallowed. I don't know whether it is. But if so, maybe a forum for advertising for your own community should be made here at vB.com. I understand if they disallow phpBB to advertise here, but somebody who uses vB should be allowed to advertise a little bit here. A lot of people have their URL in the signature, and that's is apparently allowed. So why not, every once in a while a topic. Although i doubt very much whether this is gonna bring you more users.

            I know that I am impressed when i see a forum that has had over 400 people online at the same time. It shows that there is an active community there, proving that you are not about to join something stagnet.

              Just let your forum grow naturally. There is no need to force it to artificially inflate statistics. Emailing members like that may just seek to annoy them.
