Title: Forum Lurker Recruitment Drive
Post by: Chris on January 23, 2014, 01:13:56 PM
To the lurkers who enjoy this forum, I am going to try to Jedi Mind Trick you into becoming forum member.

The benefits of becoming a member of the forum are:
1.   You get to post.  You have a question?  You can ask it.  You can answer others’ questions and feel like Mr/Mrs Smartypants.
2.   There is a feature that allows you to see the unread posts since your last visit so that you don’t have to go sifting thru them to find new tidbits. 
3.   And another feature that allows you to see which of your posts people have responded to.
4.   There is a shoutbox message board.
5.   You see less ads.
6.   You get a “like” button.  (Please “like” all of my posts-I need validation.)
7.   Make friends with like-minded nerds for either during the show or outside of the show.
8.   I forget what 8 is for.   (First to get this one wins a patented Marvel No-Prize.  And a Marvel No-Prize goes to the first person who knows what a Marvel No-Prize is.)
9.   You get to interact with really really cool people like, well, me.  :P
10.   Find the droids that you are looking for.

So c’mon and join in on the mayhem!  After tickets go on sale, the forum is REALLY going to get busy with activity so #2 is even more handy.

Google is my friend. :D

I think we need a little more in the way of benefits to entice out lurkers. Hmmm... maybe a free 'high five' or 'fist bump' at SDCC from anyone wearing a FoCCI lanyard? (I'd say a 'free hug', but those signs creep me out...)

This week's recruitment drive:  blackmail.

Either lurkers join the forum or so help me, I will go into your bedroom, and unbag all of your most valuable, mint-condition comic books and, on one of them, you won't know which, I'll draw a tiny little happy face in ink.

How are the recruitment numbers looking?  Is the drive working? 

It seems like there are lots more posts from different members as opposed to the same people over and over.  Not that the regulars aren't a wealth of valuable information and articulate and all.  But it is nice to see a variety of members posting :).

Also, LOVE #8 and the Violent Femmes reference.  Love the Femmes!!
Title: Re: Forum Lurker Recruitment Drive
Post by: Chris on February 20, 2014, 01:26:12 PM
No idea how it is working.  I think a lot of people joined for the ticket sale, but I'm going to take credit for them.   :o

We are trying to get people to participate in the site and be active. 

I always leave out #8 in top ten lists.  Not everyone gets the joke.  It's how I find the cool people.   :)

Chris, don't lie to these nice lurkers. The cure blew up with the CDC and you know it. You don't want a riot on your hands after they realize that you were stringing them along, now do you?

Don't give him ideas like that!  You never know what he'll come up with next!  (That's why lurkers should join, just to see what happens.  He may even use spoilers or links, which aren't necessarily available to "guests" of the forum.  ;p  *hint hint*)

I have to admit I lurked the forums for a couple weeks before I actually registered last year lol. I saw some great info and seeing that it was about to be my first con, I thought I could benefit more from having productive conversations via the forum. And I'm glad I did.

If I remember correctly, I think I first heard of this site in early 2012 when (I think it was Alyssa) posted about it on CCI's Facebook page.  I only "lurked" for a few minutes before joining.  Didn't take me long to know this site was right for me!  2012 was my second con but the first in which I got a four-day badge.

If a lurker falls in a dusty forum and there's no one there to see it, does it actually happen?
