and the way it is nationwide or bigger. Last year I put out a few posts on my local Topix boards and got a goodly amount of views which led to them coming on over to SoD and the rest is history. A larger amount of initial posts would directly lead to a larger amount of 'check-it-out' responses from the Topix community. Topix is free and reaches a massive amount of peeps daily so I suggest plant the seed and see where the vine grows to...
Im pretty shameless, please choose *MY* suggestion and reward me well. Tis the American way!
Didn't say I was single handedly saving SoD. Didn't even mean to imply it. If that's how the post sounded, then I deeply apologize. I am just saying, that I think the mention of a guild that helps others may coax new people into trying out SoD.
And, it is possible you have helped more people out then Moontree has, epically since as of right now, I am the only active Moontree member. But I don't look at it as a contest. To me its about helping, not helping the most.
BTW, have you considered joining Moontree if you really enjoy helping? We would love to have you, along with anyone else that truly enjoys helping others.
Wow, I never expected this to turn into such a big debate. But I can see the greater good in it. Moontree does need to be promoted. Within SoD epically. I think the things we do are important, and very nice. That's why I started Moontree, because I think its important, and I enjoy doing it. I dont' want recognition, I want Moontree to be recognized, so others can utilize it. And without promotion, no one knows we do it, and thus no one can really ask for help. So I say it again, and sing it from the roof tops! Moontree is here! We love to help new players! Send any of us a tell! Post it everywhere! If there was a way, I would spray paint Moontree over every wall in SoD! Shout it with me! Moontree! Moontree! Moontree!
Another account drive.. have I slacked that long on getting the fame off the last one? Wow, damn.
I vote for the evony style ads, also. Was funny laughing at the teen-age boys who signed to play, and then asked in the world channel where the hot women were at.
You should probably mention that some of the stuff i gave you is still in your bank and/or used by your chars. You know, in case people think you are Jesus or something.
So last year we did an account drive that had a great end outcome (~15% increase after 3 months) yet we also were pretty annoying to the rest of the internet.
So this thread is where YOU make suggestions for how we should run this account drive! Include what we should ask players to do, what rewards they should get, how we can get our name out etc.
If we use your idea you can get fame and general adulation from the entire server.
Get to it!
