Adult Content Forum: Getting More Participants
Attracting more participants to the adult forum will increase the possible talent pool for new ideas, the usefulness of the forum as a feedback tool, and the effectiveness of the forum as a communication option for the community.
1. VOTING GAME
Initiate a fun question that encourages new participants to join the forum and post their opinion. If the topic is compelling enough, current participants can ask everyone in their groups and friends list to join the forum and contribute.
- Vote for the wildest club in SL
- Best kept secret romantic spot
- Funniest thing you overheard at an SL party
NOTE: due to the informal, inaccurate and probably untrustworthy nature of voting procedures I don't recommend this is done for actual real voting that impacts policy, but rather as a fun vehicle to simply get more people into the forum.
2. LITERARY CONTRIBUTIONS
Create a special category just for this purpose: where participants can post submissions of items they write to fit specific criteria. Could be a contest with winners and a deadline or simply a more open process.
- Exquisite Corpse style fantasy story
NOTE: because of the forum's nature, content could not actually be A-rated
3. MORE ROBUST WELCOME CATEGORY
Participants are encouraged to join the forum and always introduce themselves in the Welcome category by using a form-like structure that is more detailed and asks for fun details, to make the Welcome process more engaging. Almost like a mini-profile or one of those introductions' everyone is forced to give at group meetings for the first time (but fun!). Maybe just some simple questions everyone gets to answer to 'become part of the forum crowd'.
- Your Favourite new Acronym
- What You Are Wearing At This Moment
- Most Bizarre Thing In Your Inventory RIGHT NOW
Note: maybe something whimsical, adult-related but not adult per se
