Hi C. Is there a new way to add, tweet this, since the last time you talked about it?

 

There sure is! I hope you're taking advantage of the new options in the Action Bar to share your posts to Facebook, Twitter & Google+.

Some of the links in this discussion don't work anymore, but this one was in a different thread - it's got a lot of great advice on how to market your business/forum on Twitter. See what you can mine from it. 

Sorry took so long but just saw I had a post here. Yes I am taking advantage.  :) Happy New Year!!!

The only thing that concerns me with using Twitter for Forum Promotion is that guests must be enabled... that being said, with the latest changes that have been made, it has been said that in order to keep your forum free of the viglinks,  guests must be disabled...

How do we get around that or do be enable guests and chance the viglinks on the message board?

You have to make a choice. If you want your forum to grow, you need guest access on. Newcomers simply aren't going to go through the login process just to take a look at your forum. Remember, you're trying to entice them into your forum, not put up barriers to them getting in. Guest access is on in all my forums, and it's on in all the forums you see on Delphi's front page. Some of those forums get literally thousands of guests a day. 

Viglinks doesn't hurt anyone, despite all the panic you might have read. If you see messages that have an inappropriate link, report it to staff and it can get added to the filter that prevents that word from being linked. We've already added most political terms, and others that were brought to our attention.

Here's what I'd do: Go to our front page, log out, then visit some of those forums as a guest. Scroll through a dozen or more threads, and look for the Viglinks links. Then ask yourself, "If I were a guest, newly arrived here, would this bother me?"

Then you have a solid basis for making your decision.
