There seem to be lots of new Facta players in the Rankings....Is there some way for each of them to get a welcoming letter from, say, an editor? (Maybe even inviting them to try the Brainoffs?)  I think that would be a nice touch because I remember getting such a note when I was new.  There are some interesting names in that Rankings list!!

Comments?

I keep meaning to do things to draw people into Factacular more once they've found the place.  Little challenges, for example, to get people to find out about the various areas of the site.  Help texts to make it more obvious what's going on etc. etc.

It's something that badly needs doing - I just get distracted by other things unfortunately.

Historically, people have taken it upon themselves to send welcome notes (usually attached to a brainoff) to new members. That's the best approach really, in my opinion, and it doesn't need to be from an editor or anyone "official".

Of course, if there's any way I can make it easier for you to send brainoffs then I'm more than happy to make the necessary changes.

well u could trim down that random participant selection thingie so that it only contained active members or something. perhaps it could be based on that list of people that most recently played. otherwise it's really not much of an improvement over doing the selection one by one.

Thanks for the suggestion, Jackson.

Actually, it already selected from active players - or players who've logged on recently, at least. I've changed that slightly so it also looks for players who've got a few facts to their name.
