      What kinds of responses have people given to you? To me the ones who reply mostly just say they'll look into it and that's all I hear back.

      What can I say to them to sell them on the site?

      UPDATE:

      We have come up with a 2nd and 3rd place prize for this contest.

      Currently we have a $20 for 15 members with requirements as listed on posting #1.

      For 2nd Place the prize is a $10 gift card for 8 member referrals and their requirements will be the same for those newcomers as listed in posting #1....5 threads and 5 posts with the same restrictions.

      3rd place the prize is a $5 gift card for 6 member referrals with the same posting requirements as listed in posting #1.

      Here's where the fun comes in...

      For the first member to get the 6 referrals and meets the requirements, he/she can choose to have the gift card given immediately or wait and try to go for 2nd or 1st place. If that member does not reach the 2nd or 1st place then he/she will still receive the 3rd place prize for being first to reach it. There will only be 1 First place winner, 1 Second place winner and 1 Third place winner (3 total winners, not the same person, it's not accumulative).


      If there are any questions, please ask.

      Prize aside, I'd GLADLY invite a few hundred folks here (well, certainly the MANY "friends" I have on my friends list at CF).... but it's usually a rule violation at sites to "plug" another site (even in PM's) and that usually includes invites. There just aren't many where I still have a good email address.... but I'll do what I can.

      IMO, the best way to grow a site is to offer something rare, something different - something hard to find elsewhere. There are COUNTLESS "Christian" sites that are "Mr. Roger's Neighborhoods" - fellowship sites where everyone is just NICE, uber-relativism reigns, and where the rule is to not discuss anything that a poster might choose to feel badly concerning, sites of games, etc. SO MANY of them.... some very large and well run.... so it seems supremely difficult to compete with them.


      During my 10 years or so at ChristianForums, I believe there have been at least a dozen spin offs, usually begun by former staffers at CF - often "dismissed" ones. I say at least a dozen because I think I signed up at about that number. I know of only two (I'm counting THIS as one of them, unsure if it actually is) that exist at this time - the rest never got off the ground. THIS one SEEMS to be The demise of CF into another of the Mr. Roger's Kumbyah sites gives CH a huge, gigantic opportunity to fill that void left by what once was the largest Christian site on the internet. It will be hard - very hard - to compete with it and millions of others in terms of relativistic niceness ... it might be possible to become what CF once was: a place for serious, REAL, open, honest discussion of the issues that divide Christians, although again, the previous attempts to do so never got off the ground, it seems.


      The very name of this site SUGGESTS to me that this is yet another - oh yet another - Mr Roger's Neighborhood, yet another uber-relativistic site to deny truth and to evade anything that one might choose to feel badly about. To which MY reaction normally would be: there are already many, many, many such sites - all bigger and better than this one [and I'm already registered at a few dozen of them, I just have no reason to post there]


      IMO, the leaders/owners need to have a CRYSTAL CLEAR vision of what THIS site is about.... a CRYSTAL CLEAR, well understood, universally embraced idea of what makes THIS site unique, and then do EVERYTHING to be that, to promote that; clearly conveying it so that folks clearly now why they should visit and join HERE.


      The 'net friends I know would accept an invite to a site that is DEDICATED to lively, open, "real" discussions of important Christian issues.... THIS would be what would attract and keep the people I would refer here. What causes them to leave is over-moderating or the lack of meaningful discussion.




      Just MY half cent.... with no expectations that it will be noted or considered.



      Pax

      I didn't "advertise" the site but did tell people where they could find me if they wanted to get in touch with me when I PMd people on CF. Their rules stated that you couldn't advertise, but CH does not sell a product or service so it's not breaking their rule
