I'm really going to be focusing on this between now and the start of next season. I feel we lost a lot of activity in the massive gap between contracts opening and the season starting due to the huge offseason, and I want to recapture it. We're actually still getting similar amounts of unique sign-ins but the post counts between November and now are still a fair bit down despite the simming. If anyone has any initiatives that they believe will increase posting, free discussion and general enjoyment of the forum, then I'd love to hear them. I don't mean others ways to encourage members to post for the sake of it, but ways to encourage them to have genuine conversations here. Beyond that, I'd also like to do a bit of an advertising raid on other forums. It's a fine line between showing someone the forum and coming across as an advertiser/spammer so it's better if we target individuals from other forums and get people who know them to contact them.. but actual advertising threads that were clearly spam such as this one have worked for us in the past, so we're definitely not above them. I'm thinking about offering people an activity boost to people who bring new members across if they make 50+ posts, or something. Thoughts?
