It's been getting pretty boring around here. Just the same old members with the same old stories. We're like a bunch of old men sitting in front of a general store with nothing better to do. Joker, are you out of eggs yet this month? The reason is that our team is shrinking. When I joined 2 years ago, we had about 125 active crunchers. Now we have about 45. I understand that with the economy the way it is, a lot of people are turning them off. We need to try to recruit new members.

I think we need more exposure. No I don't mean put Uncle Bob out on the street corner.


Here are some easy suggestions that people can do.

If you don't have a URL in your projects account, copy and paste the one for this forum there.


If you don't have a profile, create one and add the following:
Create a link to the teams page at the end.


HTML Code:
[URL=http://www.gpugrid.net/team_display.php?teamid=794][/URL]

Next insert a link to a graphic you want to use like

HTML Code:
[img]http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/2730/ubd1191fm1.png[/img]
The final result looks like this
HTML Code:
[URL=http://www.gpugrid.net/team_display.php?teamid=794][img]

This way you have a nice button in your profile to take people straight to our team page.


The next thing I did was to add 2 buttons to my signature in the message boards. The first one once again takes people to our team page. The link looks like this.
HTML Code:
[URL=http://www.gpugrid.net/team_display.php?teamid=794][/URL]
The graphic link is.
HTML Code:

Put together it looks like this.

Next I added a button to bring people here. First the link.
HTML Code:
[URL=http://forums.pcper.com/forumdisplay.php?f=17][/URL]
Add a graphic. I used one I found locally.
HTML Code:
[IMG]http://www.pcper.com/site_gfx/pcpheader_02.gif[/IMG]

With the graphic inserted it looks like this.

Maybe it will help bring some more people to the forum and teams. Then again maybe it won't but it doesn't hurt to try. Post any suggestions or graphics we can use. Now if one of those photo guys could just come up with a picture of a Rambo type frog, complete with headband, bandoleers and a machine gun.
