I know, the link (I hope) we have all put in our signatures has helped a bit, but we need something that will throw us into the NIC's plain view.
What we need here is a modification contest.
I had accessed NH from China last week (from a different IP) and noticed a multi-forum two-tier contest that was literally inhaling the NIC's attention. Having the first ever Modification Contest upped their publicity quite a bit.
Let's be the second.
Once I get the structure organized, we (active members of NL) can put links to it in the signatures and even slip the link into posts we make at both Nerfhaven and NHQ. Incoming members from other sites must register for this site to post their mods, and hopefully a large portion of the new mebers that would compete here will then stay here to be active members of this site.
I am restricted to NHQ, but I will do all I can to promote this competition there. I will be active simply as So1.
All we need to attract the NIC's attention is (our job) lots of links and hype for this competition, and a prize that will keep them attracted. We need a prize that makes joining an entire new forum from just a couple of links and some post content worthwhile. I'm thinking a sexy modded /painted blaster with great pictures of to it that has the lure capable of drawing a massive crowd. My goal is at least twenty-thirty entries into this contest.
Have any Ideas??
Post 'em Here.
What do you say, folks??
Y'all ready for this?
