Re: Attracting new members
Reply #50 –
I agree that there is no need to panic over the membership level, after all we are only just coming out of the experimental stages but SF has made a valid point. Existing members are not doing enough.
1. We should continue to post in D&D (I've not been posting there myself so I slap my own wrist on that one)
If we combine that with:
2. All of us should make a signature for our D&D postings promoting DnD ... only some of us do this at present.
The objective of the above is to continue to make D&Ding an attractive pastime while coupling it with information on the "DnD escape route". Couple that with the occasional comment in the post itself and we have a lot of publicity going on. I can't imagine a reason why Opera would object.
Exactly the adult response I would have expected & hoped for. No panic (never my intention whatsoever), just an overtly concerted effort to make this forum well known & understood by active D&D posting members.
.....I can't imagine a reason why Opera would object.
Think about it ...... How can they?
It was actually their idea that the membership find more adequate places to continue posting ............... when they forcefully get tossed out on their collective asses March 1, 2014.
Our friends in D&D need a new & improved home ........ why shouldn't we help them vocally, rather than secretively or passively.
This is my OPERA Signature ..... you can use it as a guide if you wish:
MYOPERA is shutting down their forums forever in less than 60 days!
Need a place to go?
What will you do when it all ends here?
Try a new forum, run by the users, & made up of MyOpera Exiles!

Maybe your old friends, or some of the people you follow, are already signed up there ... [url=http://goo.gl/YndZJ1] Look Here[/url]
If anyone needs further help formulating their signature, please PM me, & I'll put one together for you.
