1PostSubject: Recruiting New Members for the FMRR Group   Wed Nov 18, 2015 10:00 am

I'm going to start by posting the OP of the Announcements Forum thread called "What Should I Do Next?". This now appears on the Portal Page and is one of the first things that many newcomers will read, and it also strikes me as an excellent introduction to my present opinions on possible ways to recruit new members to the group.


Update on Sun 15 Nov 2015

This FMRR Forum now has ten members and a significant amount of posting on the General Forum. I've already uploaded a complete copy of my 1988 "War in Heaven" book in the Forum of that name, with each chapter in a separate thread, but for the time being, I don't intend to do more importing of material from my Yuku Communities. My focus right now is on recruiting more members, and this effort is being conducted from the "No Holds Barred" Forum, because it has to involve significant mention of activities on other Web discussion groups, and as such has to be considered too controversial for the General Forum.

I'm still asking myself "What should I do next to recruit more members?" I've already posted on the "Sanctuary" and on Arti's "Tyranny Watch" Community, using a signature that contains the RR addy, but so far have gotten no response. And it's probably a waste of time and energy to post on Yuku Communities frequented mostly by members of the CvsNC crowd. Those people can still visit the Yuku NHB if they feel like it and then take a look at RR on their own, so there's no reason for me to belabor the obvious.

The problem is, I'm not currently posting on any other Web discussion groups, and I don't have the technical skill required to use Twitter and Google+ as recruiting grounds. I'm hoping that some of the present RR members do have these skills and can tell me what to do. And I'm also wondering if anyone reading this can post addys of discussion forums I might take a look at to see if there are potential RR members there...


Update on Mon 16 Nov 2015

I'm still wondering "what to do next", but IMO, there is already enough activity here by a diverse membership to keep the group going indefinitely, and I was pleasantly surprised when I found out two things while trying to learn how to recruit new members. I opened the NHB Community and pushed the "Yuku" button at the top right of the front page, which took me to the Yuku Home Page, where the most prominent feature was a search blank containing the instructions, "Find It on Forums". The first subject I ran was "war in heaven", and the seemingly endless page that popped up contained what looked like hundreds of messages on that subject posted on various open Yuku communities over the last several years, about half of which were on RS, NHB, and other venues where I others I know well post regularly. The same held true when I ran "spiritualism", "spiritual revolution" and similar subjects. However, not a single message on these same subjects any of us posted on CvsNC or any other closed group over the same period of time popped up. Apparently, Yuku's search engines read only on open communities, which makes me extremely glad I've always kept my own Communities open.

That's the good news. But there are two pieces of bad news. The first is that I visited a lot of the communities on those same pages and didn't find any that seem worth posting on in an effort to recruit new members for this RR Forum. And the second is that the massive publicity the Yuku Community "Find It on Forms" searches have given to NHB over its short lifetime doesn't seem to have attracted a single new member. Everyone who ever joined NHB either came from CNC or was invited personally by NHB members through PM, e-mail, or postings in other rooms.

So I still have no idea how to attract significant numbers of new members to RR, but I'm very happy to find out that my policy of keeping all of my groups open to public view seems to be a good idea, and that Yuku has given my groups and the postings on them so much free publicity. And I'm now wondering if we should move a certain number of messages every week from here to RS or NHB, just to keep on getting the free publicity.

Sounds good. The exposure may bring new members. Good things take time to grow.

Yes! The more I think about this idea, the better it sounds. And the messages can be written to have a maximum amount of recruiting value. In other words, when we compose such messages should start by asking ourselves such questions as "What are the specific interests of the person I'm looking for?" "What keywords should be include to trigger the Yuku bot to choose the message?" And most important,what details in the message are most likely to motivate the reader to actually visit RR?"

I have the feeling that you are going to be astonished
by the growth that you experience over the coming..... 12 - 18 months......

I feel that post #2 in this discussion is going to resonate with many of you here.......

http://www.politicalforum.com/canada/409317-mr-justin-trudeau-lets-take-937-those-syrian-refugees-canada.html
Mr. Justin Trudeau, let's take 937 of those Syrian refugees to Canada?
Mr. Justin Trudeau, I am truly impressed to see that you also met with King Abdullah of Jordan during his recent visit.

For years now I have been thinking that documentary, reality and semi-reality science fiction film projects can be used to address some of the massive problems that humanity is facing.

Hollywood has often dealt with the possibility that many theoretical physicists have postulated, that time itself may not be limited to being one straight line but instead may branch much like the limbs on a tree.

Let's imagine that a moment in 1939 can be recreated and we get to do a retake on Canada's decision regarding the M. S. St. Louis?
