But this will be different and a fresh start.
 
So how would you people go about making it so we get more posters signing up and contributing? Google Ad Words would be good but costs money. Spamming other forums is a no no. Lately i've used Facebook which as worked alright for us. There's got to be more ideas. Whilst we are busy, it never hurts to stand still.

Other than using Facebook, Myspace and Twitter and poaching members from other forums i really dont know what to suggest mate.

Couldnt we try and strike up a deal with a wrestling news site so they would post a advert and a link to the forum on the site? Not sure how that kind of thing works.

Facebook: Works well generally to send private messages to decent wrestling fans because you can pick and choose. Plus there's groups for WWE, TNA, Taz and Mr Kennedy to find people in.
 
My Space: Less restrictions to Facebook but works slower due to all the unnecessary crap people put on their profiles.
 
Twitter: Used it a few times and it might have worked but no way of knowing.
 
Poaching Members: We would be like Vince Mcmahon taking out the territories Tongue
 
Wrestling News Site: That would be an excellent idea if we could find some decent wrestling news sites to ask who don't have a forum.

Didnt we once have a deal like that with Ewrestlingnews.com or am i thinking of someone else? Not sure if they have their own forum now.

As for poaching members its a dog eat dog world! Tongue
In fairness poaching is to strong a word, theirs nothing to stop people posting on more than one forum.

Try http://www.gerweck.net - www.gerweck.net as they dont have a forum, they use too, but don't anymore and for that I think we need to have posters who actually post good conversations and more lines than one, make sense in there posts and so on.

* We would be like Vinnie Mac taking out the territories one by one until the only place on the internet to post about wrestling is here. Then we would future endeavour posters who don't get over so they have very little options elsewhere to post LOL
 
* The owner of ewrestlingnews.com Frank Sun and me go way back about seven or eight years and lets just say he holds grudges longer than Bret Hart so he wouldn't use us I don't think.

* Everyones a winner baby that's the truth. Damn you've got me singing.
 
* Yeah we can make it so if someone types in http://www.tupwrestlingforum.com - www.tupwrestlingforum.com it redirects to their front news page. In return they put up a forum link on their homepage which redirects to here. Everyone is a winner, the upgrade means we could cope with vast numbers and the new URL will help as well.

Well... I try helping out. I tell people I know through youtube about the site. And I know alot of wrestling fans on the game I play. I have told a few people about the site. But that is the best I could do. I just go out and anyone who likes wrestling I tell them about this site.

Now... wait. Another thought I had also involves youtube. What if we could get a highly popular youtube wrestling shooter to post links to the site in their description box.... Maybe we can get them to endorse our site, even if they aren't a member... Just a thought.

Right I plan to get on an originally made Facey account the max 5,000 friends you can get but obviously all wrestling fans.
 
I will then invite them all to join our Facey group and send out a message to see how many of that 5,000 join here (it should take months).
 
Anyway because I can be specific to who I invite to add the profile what do people want here from posters?
 
More males?
 
More females?
 
Hotties?
 
People from a specific part of the world?
 
Left handers? OK I don't think I can be that specific.
 
Ideas welcome Smile

Couldn't give a shit how they look, as Im not shagging them, just talking to them on the net.

Just get smart sounding ppl I guess. Preferably a bit spread across a few countries so you can get different perspectives on things, but thats not really THAT important.

Good luck anyway.

People can give their own thoughts but I think the main three types we need are.......

1) Women as we are low on regular female posters.
 
2) North Americans to hopefully kickstart live Raw chats again.
 
3) Southern Emisphere peeps as we don't have many Aussies or Kiwis.

If you can wade through the cesspool that is the comment section on every WWE post, there's a few folks who know what they're talking about. We could use some of them.
 
Also echoing the sentiment for more females. Sure, we have JJsGirl and CelticQueen, but it would be nice to have a few more with the female perspective on things.

Working on guys/ladies from New Zealand and Australia mainly. Some involved in actual indie promotions in those countries.
 
Through the night UK/European time gets quiet once North America goes to sleep, so it would be nice to get it busier on here around 5 am GMT.
 
UK foks aren't particularly needed as much as other countries.

This forum is incredibly WWE heavy. Try getting a few TNA fans, and alot of Japan, Mexico, ROH, Indy fans. TUP is too top heavy with fans of the big boys, more diversity would be amazing.


I have been on Omegle and I open with a question about wrestling, and if me and that person get to talking wrestling and they seem to be into it, I link them to here and go about to other random people.

That's good thinking as can add people in groups of foreign promotions.
 
You keep getting a security thing to type in when you do something so until someone uses their mobile phone to get a comfirmation code it's going to be slow pickings (30 odd friends so far).
 
I've sent the first few a link to join our Facey group, so we are edging closer to 800 in it.

LOL Yeah the code would be sound, and i'll try and beat Facey at their own game.
 
They are getting stricter on sending out friend requests so those who add I tend to tell to send a friend suggestion to wrestling fans in their list of the TUP profile.
 
I think you love being the only Kiwi who posts here, but i'm working on it not being for much longer LOL

Try trawling for fading wrestling forums that are seemingly low on activity, or have issues where people are getting fed up. Word of mouth and google advertising is really the best way to do it.

I do think youtube is a good one (thats how I found this site) You can usually tell whether the poster has common sense through their posts on that and if they are commenting on youtube then they probably dont have any where else to post.

Yeah it would have to be subtle to a degree so they don't think you're taking the piss, but if they all get invited, at least they'd have someone they already 'know' posting too.

Be good if you can bring them here fella. Just make sure they mention you in their Introduction section so you get some praise for your work.

There is a Twitter application you can buy for a one off fee of like $17 that I saw the other day but can't find now. Basically it automatically adds for you 500 a day (which is max Twitter allows) and unfollows anyone who doesn't follow you back after a few days of being given the chance to.

We would soon end up with thousands of wrestling fans following us on Twitter, so that when I do updates on our account there, loads would see it and think about joining once they visit us. You can search for keywords like WWE, TNA, Jinder Mahal etc. Then the application searches Twitter tweets mentioning those keywords and adds them. You can even make it so the application only adds people from a specific radius of a place or by gender.

So basically you could make it so the application only automatically added males from New York or females from England or whatever to widen your forum appeal. It's not Social OOmph whatever it's called or Hummingbird or Tweet Adder. I'm sure i'll come across it again sometime. I was typing something like "automatic Twitter followers" into Google.

Yes our TUP has made it as it's recently been tweeted by #Heel who got a RT for it.

Easy to tweet people based on which wrestler on Twitter they are following, location in their bio, gender etc so we can for example try to get more women on here or more Australian posters etc.

Originally posted by Raven Raven wrote:

LOL Yes sometimes advertisement brings people like him here. Nice to have an occasional joke around the place in with all the inteligent people.

PS: If our TUP account unfollows anyone who posts here tell me and i'll follow straight back. You can only follow so many compared to who's following you, so I use The Tweet Cleaner to mass unfollow quickly (so more can be followed and messaged about here), which sometimes means people who shouldn't get put up in the list of folks to unfollow.

Nevertheless, DZ, its not your newness or anything else, its mainly because the initials of your username match Dolph Zigglers, which is just as stupid a reason as any other and just came to my mind.

Good luck with promoting us. Hopefully it will lead to some more new people signed up.

Whatever TUPeeps think we need more of i'll try and get in touch with. For example on Twitter you want fans of WWE, TNA or ROH you tweet followers of their official accounts. If you want women you usually find them following guys like Cena/Orton. If you want people from a specific country you search for a wrestler or indy promotion from that country.

What we need? More females, more independent wrestling fans, possibly more non UK Europeans too, just to get their view on things. That would be idea.

More folks based in North America so we can one day get back to getting a couple of hundred posts in the Raw thread alone as the show airs.

More folks from Oceania to go with Ozwwefan, Raven and the occasional BadGuy post.

Do many small time indy promotions in countries like Australia and New Zealand have popular Twitter accounts? If they do it would be easy for me to bomb some peeps from there messages.

Also have you tried targeting the British based Federation to get their cult followers to sign up? From that we may even get some of the actual wrestlers to sign up and post to give us that insider view.

We don't need more females, we just need posters with wrestling knowledge and who are open minded to provide good discussion. If there were females I bet a bunch of you would be round them like flies round shit (Codebreaker, Craig ;)).
I know it's not my place to say what we do or don't need as I've been here less than a week, but I don't think gender really matters.

True it doesn't matter as long as they are knowledgable, it's just good for variety. It's nice to get as many different people posting as possible for a wide range of discussions. A good range of posters who are male/female, fans of WWE/TNA, from all over the world etc. Then we have no time of day we have downtime of few posts too.

What can I say you know me too well dude, I love the ladiesTongue
 
The place seems to have a pretty decent core of posters as it is with you guys all knowing each other pretty well. Its a bit harder for new posters coming on and integrating especially with the lack of efeds (Like some of us newbies used on other forums). As good as it would be to have a load of new posters you've also got the problem of "Too many cooks spoil the broth"

Do we really need loads of new posters. There has been a good flow of newbies recently, for that we must thank admin. However if there are too many posters then the forum becomes overcrowded and difficult to actually have intelligent discussion on.


Posted By: DangerZone
Date Posted: 16/January/2012 at 22:08
in this case its more 'too many cocks spoiling the broth'

the EFeds are a pretty big problem in reality, none of the new members are involved, yet if they were and chose to leave it would spoil it for the others involved.


Also I found this place on my own so don't give admin props for my awesomeness being here.

It's a Circle of Life. When we stop posting, our usernames become one with the grass. Then, the newbies eat the grass. And so, we are all connected in the great Circle of Grass.

As I ask for is.......

1) Don't act like a cock.
2) Give enough in the posts for people to be able to reply to.

If people give decent posts of substance and don't like like a cock over the internet we can have as many people as we can possibly get.

I expect people to not be cocks. Just because you have the assurance of not being handled on the internet and the fact that you have the chance to be a dickhead doesn't mean it should be excusable. Doing it for fun can be alright sometimes, but just being one to be one isn't something I want to have to deal with any more than I have to. Unnecessary dickness isn't alright simply because you can. But realistically it'll happen no matter what, so the best we can do is pick our poison very carefully.

Depends on what folk class as dickheads, everyone seems to get on well with certain types of people and get repulsed by others - Not just on the internet but in life in general. It i amazing how some people seem to actually "grow a pair" when keybashing on the internet too try look hard.
Take this place for example im sure we all find there are some of us we think are top posters and others we think are complete wankers - I know I have opinions on certain folk on here and I defy anyone on here to say they've not made snap judgements on others.

I got few suggesiton if bare working with me here and listening to what I go to suggest it can be great. 

1. I've seen the facebook page (or should I say something that it is meant to be a facebook page.). I think it will only be fitting for someone to start running the page and advertise it in WWE's pages (trust me when I say this it works. some people do come to the forum and actually register. doing it on a contant basis won't harm the forum.)

2. I would suggesting doing live discussions, that we as a group can upload to YouTube. It's a great way to get fans interested in the forums. Also it gives the fans a chance to see that there are a variety of people on here. (I had a live discussion, that I used to do with my friends using Skype. I gave up after there was no cooperation from my friends' side.) 

3. Anothe good idea is to send smart people the link to our forum. Using YouTube is great, but I think also targeting some folks from the WWE.com site, would also be good. 

That's all I can suggest.

I'm pretty sure we do one and three already. I suppose it would be possible to do a live discussion, it just depends how many people are receptive to it. You'd probably have to talk to our American members about that, we in Australia can't really do it, and it's on a bit late for most of our English members.

We used to do a lot more, too, when the forum was a lot smaller. Me and Pac (I think) and possibly some other people came through Google Ads, and I think JTB arrived through an ad in Powerslam or something if I'm not mistaken. But then Admin would need to put up money for those things, and that's a hassle given that he gets no income from this place.

I spent a tenner once on Ad Words to see how it works and I think the cash lasted one day and nobody signed up from it as far as i'm aware.

As i've said before if someone is watching a wrestling video on You Tube and sees a decent comment left by someone send them a message about us. It's how I got Pavel here amongst others.

Black Fraction is another newbie this week brought in by You Tube who has started well and will hopefully stay around.

Ad Words being Google Ads? That's how I found this place, and I'm pretty sure Pac was the same. That's two members who have been here over six years and have 15,382 posts between the two of us.

Don't remember using it back then. I was on about using it last year.

Think you two found us through searching Google. I'm on about the little ads at side of search results.

Because he didn't post LOL But if you read an inteligent comment on a You Tube video bomb them a short message to check out here and earn some brownie points when they mention being refered here by you in their Introduction thread Smile

I don't know, Pac may have found us through an actual Google search, but I'm 100 percent sure I found this place through Google Ads. I remember it, I was looking up something for an e-fed I was in at the time, and this place was down the side.

I don't know. I tend to watch 80's videos from NWA, AWA, and WCCW on YouTube. I doubt TUPeeps like Raven or JTB really want any more old school fans hanging out.

If it brings in more mature and well aged fans like Oz then it's all good.

Sure folks will take the compliment if they get a message saying something like saw your response to the *insert video* and it would be good if you checked out the forum I post at *our URL* because I think you'd fit in with us blah blah etc.

No need for people to write out long messages.
