So how do we get ppl to get active on the forums?

Postby Stoic » Tue Oct 28, 2014 8:21 am

I check in multiple times a day on the forums and noone ever posts...so how can we get ppl to read and post more? Maybe we can start 2 threads under General Retardation for Funny Pictures and Funny videos

From what I've seen, a quarter of the guild doesn't even have a account for the forums.

It's the end of the xpac and there just isn't anything going on. Most ppl don't come back to their computer unless it's raid time. When WoD is here, the forums will be more active.

All our raiders should be on the forums simply because they apped. Many, their forum name doesn't match their WoW toon name. Goldfish aren't required to app so they may or may not have an account.

Is it worth having an element that states their wow toon on under their forum name? just a thought!

Also is it worth starting to compile boss encounter for WoD to perhaps engage the community :)

Is it worth giving an incentive to our guildies for being active in our forums? Maybe a rank promotion, a higher limit for repairs? Extra access to guild tabs. For the ones that are officers or predators, there will be no incentive because they should lead by example.

Hmm... Well I don't know how to increase activity on the forums, but I will post something here quickly just so you guys know that i'm active. >.>
Really though, it would be nice to have more going on here. Increasing the activity on the forums will build more relationships among people in the guild and will increase people playing together online. I do like the idea of some sort of reward for being active, but setting a reward for something usually requires a specific deadline of something (i.e. you must post this many posts every week to get extra guild repairs). I don't think something like that would work because if people feel like they have to maintain a certain number of posts, then it just starts feeling like a job/requirement which may, in itself, be a turn-off from posting.
We need to get people to want to be included in more of a community, which will get them to want to (like me) check up on the forums when they get the chance. One thing that pulls me into more of a community aspect is making videos for the boss fights and getting other people involved in the filming of them. I think we need to get other guildies to tie their hobbies into the community, and thus increase their want to stay up to date with what is going on in the community (checking the forums.)

Another thing we can do is take the servers down. That seems to get people here :-D

Honestly, I think the most active guild board I was ever a part of had a subforum for pics of nudes of peoples' exes. ;)
