I am sure you have all realized that Nitro's attempts to liven the board are virtually futile. Sure, they make the clan much better, but they are not really boosting the activity. (No offense, of course, Nitro -- I love what you're doing.) I see it as there is only one more thing we can do in order to survive. By comparing other clans to ours, I have realized our problem: we need more members -- active ones especially.

So how do we get these members? Recruiting. Recruiting recruiting recruiting. We've tried ideas (the member referral program, the Recruitathon), and they have all failed. Now is time to be serious. If we do not recruit, this clan will die. You, the members are keeping this place alive; however there are so few (relatively) that eventually we will lose you, and this clan will surely die. With more members, however, this can actually life. Furthermore, more members and thus more activity will keep us here because we'll have more fun, along with attracting even more members.

However, I can not do all this recruiting myself. I am constantly being bogged down with work and I have a quickly upcoming, major test; I am lucky to be on now. Although this make sound cheesy, this clan needs your help. You, the members (and the staff too, of course). Together, we need to recruit more members to keep us alive and going. I repeat, only by your help may we stay alive. Please recruit more members.

Moreover, as a prize for recruiting an active member, the recruiter will receive either a negative warn unit and a custom color or a negative warn unit and 400 volts. This is a special gift from me to you for helping WLC.

Also, last few things:
1) Do not recruit at other clans.
2) Do not make new accounts and cheat to get the prize.

Please help to make this clan better.

And, if you can give any recruiting advice, please do.

I'm not sure how other clans do it, but in RO, most of the big guilds get their members by randomly inviting people. Some of them wait in the cities and invite anyone who spawns and are not in a guild.

Yeah guys. Telling your friends that play these online games in RL, or even if they don't play these certain games, to join, is the biggest help. That way we know you have a way of contacting them. Plus, you'll know someone on the forums.

I will recruit now today =)

Thank you all for your help. It seems as if the best two recruiting methods are just advertising and telling people on games to come join.

Any good sites to advertise on?

Apparently Smogom is down right now, tho. Not a bad idea for a place to advertise. Very good, actually. Pokemon activity should boom.

Theres one problem that is probably the reason for the lack of members. New members get discourages because the old members seem to talk only to each other. I say we make newer members feel more welcome- like, we should instant message them, see what their intersts are, get to know them.
My two cents.

I'd agree to an extent. When they post an intro topic, we do greet them kindly. I assume chatting with them would be more effective, tho. Good point.

Exactly Arc.
But I do it for people because I am always bored with nothing to do and peeps are too lazy to do themselves.

It depends on where you spam ads for WLC. Nearly every clan does that on GameFAQs, so it's not uncommon. And, if you will, it's a bad rep, or no rep.

For the fake accounts, that'd be great if you could manage it.

Btw, people, we still have no one new. I'll see what I could do to recruit, but we need all of us.

No one is here. Have you guys really been trying?

GameFAQs nearly instantly deleted my ad topic in the PKMN D forum. Anyone have any ideas of where else to advertise?

Hello!

Yeah. Basically, just go somewhere and tell people about WLC. There are two main methods:
1) directly ask specific people to join, and
2) put an advertisement on the site.

Remember, about advertising, don't advertise on another clan.

Easier plan! Start going to GFAQs DS game forums and quickly posting (on topic) in the threads. In your sig will be an ad for WLC with the URL. This way, we can advertise without breaking rules!

Yes? No?

you can't actually use sigs on GFAQs... you use two lines of text...
Also jean, you can't just full out blatantly advertise on there either.

I tried to full out blatantly advertise. Usually, they last for a while to be flamed, but this one was quickly shut down.

Still you can fit it in your sig. Here's mine:
