[Challenge] March Madness Vote-tacular!

Post by Hades [Forge] » Fri Mar 02, 2018 6:09 am

Hello, greetings and welcome, members of the Collective! It's now officially March, which means winter is over and spring has sprung - unless you live in the UK, that is! Wherever you are, though, the great voting engines have reset their counters and a range of new adversaries have shown up for us to sweep aside. So grab your voting hat, pick up some snacks, and let's get going!

Now, I know that you guys see our reminders in the announcements, and the Shoutbox, and on Skype, and in the Discord, and occasionally scrawled across your living room wall in the dead of night (Sorry, we learned social interaction from the wrong movies) but as always I'm going to take this opportunity to reiterate exactly how important voting is to the forum. Since the start of 2017, the voting sites - Top RP Sites in particular - have given us more than 9000 click-throughs from unique users! Back in February of last year, following our very first site-wide push on voting, we received 45 new member registrations through Top RP Sites compared to only 4 the month before! Those are some pretty decent numbers, and hopefully you can see the difference your votes make in terms of the new faces we've been bringing in.

Unfortunately, the lower our position on the list, the less attention people pay us - and as anyone who's been here for any length of time knows, it's a serious fight for the top spots. This means that your vote could be the difference between RPGC drawing in brand new members and continuing to grow, and Trek's cornfield being repossessed to pay the bills - so it's absolutely paramount that you get those daily votes in. And remember: votes are counted per IP address, so a vote from your computer and from your phone nets us two votes instead of one! The same goes for any wi-fi networks you access during the day.

So how did we do last month?
Glad you asked! In February, we managed;
  • 1085 total votes - not our best month, but we broke that 1k mark!
  • After some serious competition all round (from the Harry Potter kids most of all - who knew?), we finished in the top three! A huge thank you to each and every one of you for making that happen.
At the moment our daily votes are dipping to just over 30-something votes a day, which is alright, but definitely way below what we're capable of. So please, please, please (please) remember to vote EVERY DAY and take every possible advantage of the ability to vote using multiple IP's you might have access to!

Click to vote here and here every day.

Image
As Staff, we've committed to;
  • A minimum of 10 votes a day - This should be more than achievable, if not totally trounce-able depending on the number of wi-fi connections we can hunt down.
  • An additional 16 votes a day - We pay for RPGC to maintain monthly sponsorship on Top RP Sites, which nets us an extra 16 votes a day, for free!
* * *

I realise that many of you are busy, busy people with many social activities and dank memes and whatnot that take up your time, so obviously I'm not going to harass you to vote without some incentive. To that end, I'm going to award this month's top voter this;


Suspiciously Glowing Digital Bird™!

Image

I'm gonna be honest with you - I've got no sales pitch for this one. We found it kicking around in the Staff room, and we're concerned that it might cause a fire, or mild radiation sickness, or some sort of apocalypse. The jury's out. Hey - you always wanted a pet though, right? Go on. Vote for RPGC, win light-up poultry.

Yawn

Alright guys, looks like I am a tad bit late to this party, but hey, I'm here now! We are less than a hundred points behind second (Who happens to be the Wizards right now), so let's try to close that gap!

So... my lovely Collectivites.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the power to bribe you guys into voting like the Ninjas with their vote-related-perks or the Wizards with their house points but I genuinely believe with just a slightly stronger push, we could start giving both of them a bit more competition. The higher we sit on the list, the more site traffic we get and the more site traffic we get, the more new members we get to RP with all of you. Everyone is a winner!

With that said, please, please vote as many times as you are able.

We're slowly but surely pulling away from the 4th-6th place competitors, kids. Let's keep that fighting spirit going and shoot for the top, eh? Get your votes in - whether it's three, or one, every vote makes a difference.
