Baalxx had some great responses on his stream last night from people who seemingly weren't even involved in free UO servers. It was an extremely positive note and opened my eyes to the possibility of an audience outside of former players.

This is an ideal time to get things moving forward and through the grapevine I believe staff is making bigger strides in the weeks to come.

Jay said something in a former forum post saying he would be more than happy to donate to a marketing plan. I would second that.

Also if anyone has any side marketing projects or ideas for UOSA myself and I believe quite a few others would be more than willing to put in some grunt work to help out.

I actually literally go to school for marketing, and IMO the most obvious thing UOSA could do is update its donate via item purchase's artwork and inventory. Unfortunately, it likely would entail a total overhaul since even its website is basically dated.

You have to think of it in terms of calculus. Right now UOSA is getting very little return, and it also coincides at least partially with very little effort in this area, as well as other factors. No one can dispute that. Its a known. However, I believe with a more concerted effort to UOSA merchandise and website, it would probably affect the largest change in popularity slope. That's my opinion.

I have been saying this, probably some are tired of hearing it. I think a new website which I am aware is going to happen, but advertising these auto events on the front page. Having a way to dynamically advertise the events. When you message @SecondAge in IRC and type !events it tells you what is coming up, and when. If there was a way to basically share what @SecondAge does in IRC on the front page of the website, that would be awesome.

And I really think that it would be a good idea to advertise UOSA's Discord channel on the front page as well.

Also reminder to vote UOSA up on the 5 vote sites listed, some of them reset vote count frequently, so we are at the bottom on some =(

I've got a handful of FB ads drafted up and demographic groups made. After looking at Google AdWords for the UO niche, I do not think it will be worth the time to invest heavily (for UO related searches) seeing how the site still ranks well for targeted searches. I may experiment with non-UO "free game" searches, but these are a bit more risky (less targeted, bigger gamble).

I think I should elaborate since my last post didn't really convey what I meant.

If you create a graph with data over time factoring important elements such as time/effort, player population, new player retention, incoming funds, & player happiness, I believe you will find that improving the website and revamping the "IRL store" with new artwork and product will cause the greatest positive affect while other actions may only partially change some values temporarily.

k, done. happy gaming :)

How does the pic of the day work? I submitted one 3 days ago but it keeps showing pics from 2014/2015. I did vote for it, so its got at least one vote.

Really wish everyone would move to discord. The discord phone app is amazing, highly recommend discord.

I am going to just repeat myself here, its been awhile, but if it were up to me, its not, but if this was my shard, a plain as day UOSA Discord Link would be linked on the front page of the website. I know there is a forum post, but again its just my opinion.

It's at the top of the forum 'Discord Chat'.

Maybe could be a little more prominent though.

Yeah if people are interested they are likely going to check out the forum anyway, and they will run across the discord one way or the other.

I had no idea that link was there until I read it here... I agree that if it were on the front page in big letters "Join us in live sex chat" it would probably garner more attention.
