Thanks for the reply Irisado! I know that it has been a long discussion and it may be not my place to start it again. But frankly i've gotten used to the people around here and would hate to lose the fun i am having here.
Yes all the forums and blogs and facebook are a fierce competition and I am not talking about getting 700 new people over here who just spam and chatter. Thats what facebook is about and its fun! I am talking about means of recruiting maybe 20 - 30 dedicated people who like to contribute in all different areas of the hobby..
If we don't go advertising some where else ( I think we should) then at least give people a list with honest reasons why they should join here. To be honest the front page isn't that exiting... Something like this right at the front could make a little difference.
I am not a pro at advertisement but i know that people like to be courted
Lets give em a little sugar!
Welcome to 40k online!
You might ask yourself, why by the God Emperor should I be joining ANOTHER Warhammer 40k hobby site? Well let us give you a couple of good reasons why you should hang out here instead at any other place.
- we shall not forget the past: Firstly 40konline used to be EldarOnline, so till this day most of the users here have lots of Eldar related knowledge. Be it fluff, tactics or army building. You want a guide to the Webway? You came to the right place!
- we shall embrace the future: only if you know the past you can contribute to the present and future. 40konline has lots of cool people with years and years of Warhammer 40k experience. We are all still playing, collecting and painting and we know how to adept to every new edition.
- we honor the rules: Are you tired of no moderation at all? Are you fed up by flaming, spamming and hating people, be it on facebook or other huge sites, where hundreds of people just do as they please? Yes? Then you are at the right place. Moderator take their job seriously and will tell all those trolls out there to be grumpy somewhere else. We only want the best people out there! Do YOU have what it takes?
- we have it all: Ok Eldar are cool, but our forum has tons of information on all the other Warhammer 40k races and actual living people who know where their towel is. (42 is the answer!)
- Want a place to show of your latest painting achievement or you are a newbe and have no clue where to put your paint? Excellent! We have our own image gallery, painting contest, modeling and conversion site.
So please be welcomed and build your list, find out how to paint it and show it off in the gallery or in a battle report!
