DonRocks Posted May 8, 2013 Share Posted May 8, 2013 1. Visit our sponsors' restaurants, and let the manager or server know (after the meal!) that you're supporting them because they support us. 2. Share and Like threads on Facebook and Twitter. Clicking our own "Like" is a beautiful thing, but it stays internal; the only way we'll ever grow is to get the word out on the internet. 3. Recruit a friend to become a member. If everyone did this, we'd have twice as many members <violins play>, and then it would grow exponentially if it kept happening. 4. Post! Post! Post! We all want to chill and read good content, and posting is hard work, but without our members' posts, we wouldn't have a website - it means everything, and our members are some of the greatest experts there are. 5. Spread the word about DCDiningGuide.com. Rich is working constantly to develop this, with the hopes that our websites will play off one another and develop synergy. 6. Thank Pat, Linda, and all our forum hosts, again, and again, and again. First there was hillvalley, then mktye, then leleboo - these precious gems have kept this engine running over the years. 7. Help get New York active. I'll make you a deal: if you post about your meals in New York, and tell all your friends in New York about us, I'll have a nice surprise for you soon. (And that nice surprise was the Philadelphia forum. Please tell your friends in these cities to join donrockwell.com and become active.) 8. Post in the Professionals and Businesses forum. I *know* this forum alone could sustain this entire website, if only people would take the time to post about their friends, family, and business associates. 9. Volunteer. There are so many dreary, monotonous tasks to keep this website operating smoothly that I can't begin to tell you - relentlessly grooming the slopes of our forums has cured my insomnia. 10. Wish our Members Happy Birthday - Privately. I love the thought of this, but don't like the public thread for it because it become cliquish. Everyone deserves to feel special on their day, so please send a quick PM with well-wishes 11. Thank people for particularly well-written, detailed posts. This can be in the form of the Like button, but also with a brand new post expressing appreciation for particularly laudible effort - I wish we saw more of this. 12. Retweet my Tweets. It takes two seconds, and recruits the massive power of the internet to draw attention to our members' posts (only rarely do I Tweet about my own - start with this one?). Okay, I lied, and I can probably think of 10 more! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
