PostSubject: #FEAREmpire Blog   Tue Dec 10, 2013 9:40 pm

Hello,

I have created a blog for The First Encounter Assault Recon. I have decided to use Google's Blogger for organizational reasons. This blog will allow FEAR members to access important news, updates, and other FEAR related information without having to dig for it. I've asked around and found that many users do not like to use these forums for getting information and updates. This lead me to create the blog.

Here are some features that the blog will include;
    - Simple layout.
    - No account needed! Anyone can view.
    - Easy to find news feed.
    - Receive posts via email (Optional).
    - Share posts via Google+ (Optional).
    - No comments (To reduce scrolling and spam).
   
I encourage you to check it out and leave your suggestions in a comment.

Over 2,000 Views! Thanks!

I'm going to vote no, but only because we need to focus on the lack of traffic this forum has first. We shouldn't divide our attention into even more non-Roblox FEAR sites.

Sadly this forum is as active as it's going to get. Advertising this site on Roblox will gain us spammers and haters, which would be bad. I don't believe your suggestion has a lot of support for this reason. The blog would be for getting acess to updates, news, and more. While the forums are for everyone to post. But thanks anyways! :]

Us mods exist for a reason, and we're on pretty much every day. I'm pretty sure we can handle it. SONIC knows this, and he's trying to promote this forum as well.

To add, we could add in a rule where you aren't allowed to post for the first 24 hours of signing up.

A blog honestly isn't a bad idea, however it wouldn't be very effective, as not many people in FEAR actually visit these kinds of sites. We should get the word out about this one first more effectively before deciding to shove a bunch more into their faces.

The issue also comes from us Mods, we post forgetting the rules, sometimes. I'm going to continue promoting the blog, because unlike these forums, its strictly for getting needs feed. How do you know for sure that people don't visit those sites? Thanks for you input though.

Is there anything that should be fixed/added to the blog?

It's not that they don't visit, it's that they check it out maybe once and don't bother even making an account or staying more than once. There's no incentive.

I won't stop you though, and thanks for contributing to FEAR! What's your method of attracting FEAR's members?

You don't have to sing up for an account to view the blog, but you can subscribe via email.
The incentive is getting updates, news, and information without having to dig for it. A lot of people don't want to dig through these forums to find it, when they can have it all on one page.

Also you have to have an account to post on these forums, so there is not a lot of difference?

I'm currently using Twitter and our hashtag #FEAREmpire to promote my new blog. I have over 1,000 Views within three days, so I'm off to a start.

Thanks bud',

I already made one a while ago... And I remember when I showed you and others it in a group chat on skype, so, that's kinda copying my idea...
