Help me out with the CB myspace... (in General)

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 14 2009 4:58 PM EDT

I've set up a page there. We had one, two, three of those already but nothing at all goes on them. So I figured I'd make a new one, and this time I'd go friend hunting in the gaming departement. Bands do it to advertise their music, so I don't see why we could not do the same, but with the game. (We would not be the first to do so.) Might draw some folks around, or not.

To be frank I am not super familiar with Myspace (I don't have one), so I'd need a hand to see what we can put on our page to make it attractive. Ideas, or even friend request and comments from player accounts would be great too...

Whatever you can propose, really :P

post your myspace link for the account and i am sure you will get some friends.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 14 2009 5:23 PM EDT

Of course I should have thought to include this in my post :)

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 14 2009 5:29 PM EDT

Uh, no. Lol. Must have made a mistake, lemme check again!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 14 2009 5:32 PM EDT

hehe! we should probably get an admin to wipe that other link and info!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 14 2009 5:34 PM EDT

friend request sent!

Ooo... Can we do Viral Advertising on Facebook? >.>

Like, I'm sure I could think of a few ways for it.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 14 2009 5:37 PM EDT

I don't know. What I know is that most of the advertising (By bands mostly) on Myspace is done by sending friend requests en masse, with concert dates etc... I don't do that. I've been sending friend requests only to people who are shown as interested in Video Games, Rpgs...

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 14 2009 5:43 PM EDT

Speaking of which, I would need a 150 character or less message to use while requesting. Any ideas?

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 14 2009 6:23 PM EDT

Well, I've made 34 friend requests for now, and joined 22 video-gaming related groups. With a little luck, someone out of the 15k + members will be intrigued by the guy who's only named "Carnage Blender". Will be doing more later...handpicking is slow.

Edit: While I was typing I got an additional friend. Impressive, I know.

I did this a while ago and got banned for spamming people(not sure why cause i wasnt)... good luck :P

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 14 2009 10:20 PM EDT


I've been handpicking and sending personalized messages to everybody I add, so I'm hoping it's alright since I don't think I'm spamming at all. I mean, it's not like everybody doesn't do it on the site. We'll see. 1'd be satisfied with 1 new player anyway. It's better than nothing.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 19 2009 5:25 PM EDT

Alright, I doubt anyone even remembers this but anyway...

Feel free to laugh at my attempt, but it turns out a myspace is too much work for one man with a life. I often forget to check on it, So, I'll be dropping that idea for now, and admit it may have been a stupid suggestion.

So yeah, I tried and failed :) I will now stop suggesting it in future advertisement threads. If someone wants the account info, I'll will gladly give it away.

(Although I still think we should try twitter. Maybe I underestimate the amount of work there too, I'm not a very social person.)

Try this.

AdminNightStrike August 19 2009 7:59 PM EDT

There's no reason to hide this in Off Topic. I think General, or maybe Services, works nicely.

AdminNightStrike August 19 2009 8:00 PM EDT

Info post deleted and thread moved.

AdminNightStrike August 19 2009 8:02 PM EDT

Ok, so I just realized that you are kiboshing the idea... darn.

I think it's a really good idea. Maybe Hakai will run it. She's into that sort of thing, yes?

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] August 19 2009 8:10 PM EDT

I could take this over, i'm really familiar with myspace and the tricks to getting allot of friends. My personal myspace has 2800+ friends. So pending i have the time, i would be willing ;).

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] August 19 2009 9:25 PM EDT

I still think it's a good idea, I just don't think I'm the right person to put it to execution.

Kefeck, I'll CM you the details if you wanna try your hand at this. Drop me a line if you need any help, I'll be more than happy to provide it if I can.
