    Yeah, it's not really a competition. Things would get a bit crazy if it were.

    Is there a way to track referrals?

    Perhaps erik and team can come up with something

    Perhaps a quick questionnaire. Especially with the introduction of the widgets, may be a good study to see what methods are the most effective for attracting new members.

    It's fun being a chess welcomer... i had already 10 few hours ago. I realy enjoying it, aside from the need to have more games to improve my play at the same time lower my time-out percentage which is a result of an untoward incident.

    its always a great idea to welcome newbies... 


    Unrated games will not help your timeout percentage according to this

    Under the heading Online Chess "unrated games do not affect any stats"

    I was thinking for the new member.

    Kind of like "How did you hear about us?" Based off that question, maybe 1 or 2 more follow-up ones. Possibly even a question about what your main goal is for joining the site (turn-based, live chess, forums, completely new to the game (me), ect...).

    I don't know, maybe a dumb idea, but it would be cool for analysis purposes.

    I asked about the question " where did you hear about us" in the thread erik started, when he wanted to know how come there was a surge of members over one weekend. Not sure if that idea was taken onboard or not though.

    Wal-Mart , Evil? That's blasphemy. I would be careful about what you say about Wal-Mart. They have spies everywhere...

    Only one of the people I am playing is actually playing. He's now on my friend list, so I would suppose that is a success.


     I bet he works at Wal-Mart.

    How do I become a greeter?
    Becoming a greeter is easy.  First, your account must be at least 1 month old.  Second, simply visit your echess settings page and scroll down towards the bottom where you see "Chess.com Greeter", and click the 'Be a greeter' checkbox.  You may also specify how many games you are willing to play -- the more the better!

    We would like to have as many greeters as possible!  The more greeters we have, the more likely a new registrant is to stay active and get involved in the community.  Plus, it gives you more people to play chess and interact with!

    with a lot of greeted newbies not returning what do others think of the ethics of sending them an email from their profile page asking 'very politely' if they would like to return and continue with the game

    LOL, I'm sorry, but I just got a flash of: "The Chess Website from Hell." Once you sign up, they'll never leave you alone! =)

     

    Sadly...if they don't log on again, I think we have to let them go. If we email them, they'll likely think we're being too pushy and stay away forever. Even if they don't log on for a day or two, that doesn't mean they won't log in on the third day, or perhaps even in the future.
