Tips for my new RP website?

:iconyobuko:
Yobuko Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012
I just recently made a new website called Sparkle Village([link]).

It's a role-playing forum website
and so far I have gotten members (most of them just wonderful friends who came to support), and only a few of them seem to actually want to rp.

I would like to know what would be a good way to advertise more?

How do I get to the people who actually like role-playing
and would constantly come back to RP?

What am I doing wrong?
Is the layout too confusing?

What could I do better?

Any tips or comments would be very helpful!

Thanks in advance to those who comment!

Have a good anti spam strategy. I have set up an RPG forum for me and some friends and within some weeks, I got like 250 accounts in there.
I don't know if all of them are spam or some just curious people, but since normal users are not allowed to post in the forum (I have to push them into a special group), that is no problem.

I see.

How do you know who to move to the special group?

Since I know everyone in person who belongs to the group, this is quite easy. If someone else would want to join, he/she would have to write me an email and introduce himself.

I see, so until they write you that e-mail, they are limited members?

The kind of RP I like is Shadowrun and Mutants and Masterminds but I might check it out one day.

RPing is fun for me since it gives me and my friend to create a story with are OCs.^^

That is very true! I enjoy it as well because it let's you pretend to be some one else for a while.

Would they be interested?

I've honestly never RP'd....it kinda just never got my interest....:iconshrugplz:

But...that said...I did know a couple of people in college who DID love RPing and were pretty into it. Best way to gather a crowd is to hit the interwebs where ever the RPers tend to go....you know....places like Tumblr and DeviantArt are great places to start....;)
When I get to it, if you want, I can make a mention of your RP site on my journal....and while I'm at it I can also go ahead and maybe advertise it in one of the clubs I'm an Admin for on here and see if it brings in more users for you.
Maybe if you could make some kind of banner like some the clubs on here use I can go ahead and include it on our club pages too.
Let me know if you want to give it a go....
