    Extra! Extra!

    I’ve been officially anointed by Sir Moderator 72 as the CR Marketing Manager.

    My first step as manager will be to implement the following:

    Each member of the chashuva CR must email 5 friends- inviting them to join the CR.

    For those concerned with privacy, there is no need to reveal you screen name to your friends.

    In addition, follow up is a necessary part of this new marketing policy.

    Further suggestions to improve the current state of the silent summer CR are largely welcome.

    Thanking you in advance for your cooperation.

    ~ your Marketing Manager, areivim

    Considering the fact that I’ve probably sent well more than five people here, I consider my job done.

    Areivim, congratulations on your new title. If you do your job well, you may be even lucky to keep it for more than a year 😉

    Mod80: so does the formula go by using the actual numbers of mods or does it use the moderator numbers? 🙂

    That’s on a “need to know” basis…80

    Report is due Thursday 3:00pm EST

    Encourage your friends not only to check this place out, but to send a trial post and see how it goes over… how they feel about it. It’s a thrilling experience! They will be cordially and warmly welcomed by our special Welcoming Committee and all new posts will get an exciting response from us old timers

    That’s another point- the Welcoming Committee (that includes all old & loyal members) must get back on its feet in order for this to survive.

    I nominate ames and Jax to submit a sample invitation each which we can all use (male & female versions)- with slight changes to suit each receiver.

    Whether your friend is opinionated or chilled out- it makes no difference.

    The CR has a topic just for them and their special interests.

    Does your friend have a special hobby? Pet peeve? A talent in writing interesting divrei torah? Is he/she a hock-a-cheinik? Is your friend a genius with lots to share on a range of topics? PERFECT- this is the place for him/her!

    Jax and ames- step up to the plate, take on this new duty and report back ASAP.

    Much appreciated

    ~ Marketing Manager

    Hello Mod 80- I never extended a proper welcome: WELCOME TO THE LOONY CR! Thank you for taking on the risks of a grand mod

    Do I have your nomination?

    That is classified…80

    Just a reminder: mod 72 is here long enough to represent 72% of the CR moderation board. That’s already more than two-thirds… but I’ll give you the courtesy of a vote ;);)

    See sub-section 3, paragraph 2 for formulae for calculating the two-thirds….80

    Wow areivim, you’re going strong. Do we get points according to our number of tries or by actual results only?

    very good. great catch 80. however, you forgot about the grandfather clause in the intro to Edition 2.v5 – also known as the 171rule (72 and 99) in which 72 and 99 are not bound by limitations expounded upon in editions post edition 1.v2a.

    Last I checked the edition you quoted from is from is 3.v1… how about some more coffee over here (and no grumbling)…

    mod80 is avoiding aussie’s question which coincidentally is on a need to know basis… I hereby call an old timers mod & member meeting to reconcile this new dilemma

    mepal- We have no need to for people who don’t post 🙂

    72- I am ROTFLMKO 😉

    #653358

    I only missed that clause because I wasn’t feeling well during the Statutory Rules Review Course, and a certain unnamed “senior” Moderator decided I would not be allowed to make it up.

    and um..it seems the coffee machine isn’t working again. I don’t understand why this seems to always happen during my shift. Perhaps if certain Moderators would learn to be more polite, it might happen less often.

    Furthermore, I ask the loyal mepal to bring to the top of the page the “New Members” thread. This will provide the basis for the progress report which is due this Thursday.

    Thank you

    to calculate: it took 1 hour to get this topic approved. It then took about 50 minutes to get 18 posts… That’s 1 post every 2.777 minutes. I’d say that’s nice progress for a new topic.

    We should have this much success in our true mission.

    LETS GO CR MARKETING!

    The CR needs YOU!!!

    areivim, it was 20 a few minutes ago…Now that’s something to cry about.

    And, at your service! I’ll bring up the new thread asap.

    Why is that something to cry about? The more posts the better

    and- while I was posting it was at 17… my post making it 18 (never argue with your manager;))

    Who’s that 19th or 20th culprit? I don’t see any new posts here…

    Its sad that it went from 20 posts to 18. Thats all. I guess they did that to you behind your back.

    Does inviting old members back count toward our marketing quota?

    http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/the-come-back-to-the-cr-thread

    Unfortunately, if the old members aren’t reading they won’t know that they are being invited back so someone has to email or approach them in person

    Can we have a sample INVITE? As in a flyer or letter to send via email before someone joins or even heard of the CR…

    ok this thread is hilarious! i’m ROTFLMKO!

    areivim congrats on this new position! may you use it to serve the CR in the best of your abilities!

    now to talk tachlos:

    -as much as i would want to increase the total of CR Members in the CR, i will not email friends about this wonderful place! for the reason of, that i do sound like myself in the CR! and don’t wanna risk blowing my cover! however if i can suggest an option here, maybe the Editor/YWN can send out a mass email to all YWN Members informing them about the CR?! in that email it should rant and rave about this amazing CR and have thread titles in there too that are exciting thread!

    -wow, new CR job for me! i’m pretty swamped with all my duties as Chairman of the CR, but i will do my best with this new job of mine! but i need my partner in this job’s help though! my writing skills are not the greatest!(like on elementary school level-yes i even had to use spell check to spell elementary!)

    -mod42-welcome back the to CR Zoo!

    This is a great idea!

    A simple way to spread the word about the CR – when there is a funny/interesting etc thread or post, email the link to your friends. You don’t even need to tell them that you post in the CR, you can just say “Hey – check out this funny thread” and include the link.

    mod 55- brilliant chapp

    All: go ahead and email links

    And that’s an order from the manager!

    🙂

    PS- Jax, do you really holler and laugh all day?

    PPS- I forgot to thank The Wolf for being such a loyal member and creating the refuah before the makkoh 🙂 Question: do you know the sn’s of the people you sent to the CR?

    I add a third point to the CR welcoming board… “working” has decided to post when s/he normally does not.

    WORKING: Thank you for re-joining the active CR members- your active participation is immensely appreciated!

    Point #4 goes to bringing back the all important squeak! (That should really get 5 points in and of itself…)

    squeak- please stick around… The CR is not the same without you
