Support Game Wire

    Okay everyone, what we need now is not only more members, but for the current members to start coming here often and posting as well. That's where you come in. If each and every member, could at least make a few topics per week, and at least 10-15 posts per day that would help out the site exponentially. Now, yeah it would be better if you could do more, but even that little bit of effort would help a great deal.

    Also, try your best to put a link in your signature at EVERY forum you go to. It doesn't take too long, and many people out of boredom, do click signatures. You can also stick the link to these forums on any site you go to - blogs, journals, websites, IM profiles, and so forth. Advertise everywhere!

    If you're willing to create a small advertising button for GW, PM it to me and I'll edit it into this post so that others may use it instead of just using a text link.

    We need all the support we can get right now, because we do not want this place to die once again.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Bumping this so more people will read it and hopefully start supporting the forum a bit more.

    Something that could help is maybe having a userbar to stick in our sigs, like the ones you see saying "FireFox user" or at FantasyAnime we use one that say's "FantasyAnimeFarmer" Well, for GameWire we could have one with a slogan like "GameWire Operative" or something cool like that. Any thoughts?

    You mean like these?

    http://www.userbars.org/

    Yeah...that'd be a good idea too, but no one here will ever make any graphics for us and I'm not too good myself... =/

    I would put a big advertisement on Myspace if anyone knows how to do that. Im sure I can get people to join.
  6. William Guest

    You mean a paid advertisement? I personally can't afford that. I have advertised at MySpace in a bulletin, but I guess it didn't work.

    But if you can get ANYONE to join, then please do so. I'm not trying to sound egotistical, stuck-up, or anything like that but look at how many people I've referred to the site, and that's not including ones I referred here as "GW5". The reason I'm pointing that out is because I rarely talk to anyone, and rarely have any friends, other than a few that already come here - so if I can invite that many people, I'm sure others can invite at least one person.

    No I mean I can add the link to My Myspace, but a banner that you can click would be better, except I don't know how to do the code for that.
  8. SeanFury I can see the venom in your eyes-

    I'll make you a userbar William. Give me about half an hour, I have some things to do first.
  9. Captain Morgan hates YOU!

    Awesome Sean! I'm REALLY glad to see something come of this idea! :)

    Thanks Sean.

    Big D:

    For MySpace or other sites that you have to use html at, use this:

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.wireforums.com/"><img src="http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b218/Non-ExistentOne/Hosted%20For%20People/GameWireAddict.png" border="0"></a>
    For forums:

    (I honestly have no clue how. I've always had problems with it. Someone fill me in.)

    William, Try this:
    "[IMG]"

    without the quote marks
  13. William Guest

    Well, I know how to do that much. :p I was meaning - making the image into a link image.

    [IMG]

    Test.

    EDIT: Got it.

    For forums use this:

    [*url=http://www.wireforums.com][*img]http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b218/Non-ExistentOne/Hosted%20For%20People/GameWireAddict.png[*/img][*/url]

    WITHOUT the * things.
  14. Captain Morgan hates YOU!

    Yeah, I tried to insert the code in that post...but it just showed the picture with no html
  15. William Guest

    Bumping this so people will read it again.

    What I want everyone to do is post a link to this place at EVERY site you go to (unless it's forbidden there). Hell, join some sites just to post the link if you want to, although some sites require 25-50 posts before you can do so.

    ALSO, send the link to EVERY person that you have on your AIM, YIM, MSN, ICQ, IRC, etc. lists.

    If everyone does this, I guarantee AT LEAST 15 new members.

    I post the site on Guild Wars in major towns alot of times when i have nothing to do. I have no idea if it has worked yet or not. Because alot of people in online games are assholes... I will keep trying.
  17. Captain Morgan hates YOU!

    For everybody who uses Battlenet: try posting the GameWire link in your profile.

    Besides that, William's on the ball with his suggestions.
