Topics I've Started
09 September 2008 - 10:16 PMDoes anybody play world of warcraft?
I have fallen to my master. I cannot stop playing this game. It is effecting my life, work, etc. Do not play this game if you have not. :)
For those of you who have played please let me know!!!
I need help!!!
09 September 2008 - 10:09 PMI recently noticed that a majority of the most popular threads (they show up on the right of the screen when I sign in) have to do with specific topics. Please let me know which topics you think would be *MOST* popular on hypography. By most I mean the most distracting, irritable, you know the usual suspects that cause our moderators to devote a lot of attention to. :hyper:
Here is what I have so far. Please re-rank if you feel necessary. This is going to turn into a moderators soap box :)
4) Social Sciences (I am grouping: same sex marriage, etc into this category)
Please let me know.
10 July 2008 - 06:16 PMI have been urging a lot my endowment and corporate accounts to begin exploring the idea of environmentally and socially responsible investing.
I believe that if your mission statement / philosophy is one thing your investment mentality should be no different. To many times I have found that XYZ Environmental Inc has 60% of it's money in oil stocks.
Do you invest in socially and environmentally responsible investments?
Do you think that it is worth sacrificing your overall investment return for yourself as most of the managed investments in this arena lag its peers who do not invest consciously?
07 July 2008 - 08:27 PMI have been on this forum for a little of 3 weeks and although I may or may not be the one for suggestions I think that feedback from anybody could be positive.
Have you ever done a study on this forum to see which new users have never been to a forum before or been a member of? And, compared that to the discussions threads they were posting and who the interacted with. Have you considered when a new member shows up for the website to point them to kind of a mission statement of the site and the general consensus/rules within it.
Have you ever taken a census of the members who reached lets say a post count of less than 100 and not returned and seen what interaction they had with other members/moderators/administrators? (The reason I ask is so many post have been started by members who have not logged on since forever and have less than 100 post and seemingly disappeared. )
One forum I have been in, I never joined but I have perused, has moderators who cannot conduct in the actual threads. They simply moderate. After all that is what a moderator is.
Hypography is a great site. The one thing I do see is the fact that for the past 3 years some of the main contributors are still the main contributors. This may be fine. But I was just curious if any studies have been done to examine these different factors and the growth of hypography overall.
I was just curious because I am in business and naturally I examine the business aspects of things. I was just curious to what your site is doing to attract new members, more importantly: retain new members, and offer new exciting things to hypography.
I think member retention would be one of the things I focused on most. As acquiring new members is the most costly part (advertising, word of mouth, etc) and retaining members is the easier part if done correctly.
04 July 2008 - 08:19 PMI have read a lot of stories recently discussing the effects of global warming on polar bears.
I read this article and it was interesting....
