FORUM VIEWS INCREASED

Post by Shandon Loring » Wed Sep 04, 2019 8:23 pm

Just curious... saw a huge leap in "Views" on Seanchai Library Event Forum Posts today...

We post every week for that weeks story event, and typically will see a dozen or so 'Views' and no replies.
This is very discouraging of course, since Kitely alone has over 100,000 registered users - plus other sims that view Kitely Forums.
But.. i guess it is what it is...

However.. today I'm seeing multiple hundreds of views on all our Event Forum Posts.

Does this mean we've broken some glass ceiling and lots more people are looking at Seanchai Library Events all of a sudden?
If so YAHOO!! Maybe somebody will show up tomorrow night.. LoL!

Or is it perhaps just some computery/database thing?

Just curious, it's a real struggle, as many here know, to drag audience in, and any indicators like this are worth looking at.
(BTW: Thank You Ilan and Oren! You have done a terrific job on the Viewer Login page to make folks aware of Events every time they log in to Kitely!)

Oh, and if you haven't been to a Live Story Event yet... c'mon by... professional storytellers... fun audience... social interactions.. craic... great venues.. awesome RP opportunities... and always free stuff to go with the fun.

Thank you Shandon,

Given the quite uniform jump in views it's most likely this is due to some search engines deciding to start indexing our site.

I am one of the frequent "viewers" that don't often reply. I really should start coming, your readings are fantastic and absorbing. It is a bit late in my time zone but the sets you create and the stories you choose, with the masterful presentation is truly a unique experience and incredible form of art.

Thank you Salie!
I know the Time Zone thing is a challenge for sure...
As we develop our audience we can get more storytellers here in Kitely, and so more time slots..
We have 7-day programming in SL, so it can be done.. lol... we're still working on it here.
Thank you for your kind words.. we ain't going away... :-)
In fact, in the near future (relatively) I will be making a significant RL life change that will open up more time for the really important things in life.. hanging out with my momma, and telling more stories!

Be well my friend!
