The contest point:
So, what will this advertising contest be all about, you ask? The objective will be fairly straightforward. We want to get some new, awesome members to join the crazy here at TOZ, and you, our existing members, are tasked with finding them and bringing them in! So enter the Advertising Drive.
The way it works will be based on Advertising Points, awarded to members who participate. These points will be tallied as follows:
Forum-Posted Advertisement: 1 AP
Role-play Request Response: 10 AP
Word-Of-Mouth Referral: 5 AP
Other-Posted Advertisement: 5 AP
More on what these are will be explained in the Guidelines below.
For each member who joins due to your referral, you get 50 AP and 500 Gold.
Deadline: July 15 at 11:59pm site time
No rules on this one! But as this is an advertising contest, I'll toss up some helpful guidelines to help you gain your points. (:
> post in the "Advertising" sections of other forums. This is, by far, the easiest way to advertise. It involves posting one of our premade ads (or an ad you've designed yourself) on other forums, much like our own Advertising Section. A good way to begin is to link back on the forums that have already advertised here.
> advertise on RPG-D or another role-play searching forum or directory. Answering role-play requests is always a lot of fun! Join a site like RPG-D and look through their seeking topics. You can also put banners and signatures of ours in your siggy, linking to the forum that way.
> tell your friends, and advertise word-of-mouth. Talking about the site to friends is always a good avenue - and it's cool to bring in members that you already know!
> post our advertisements via banners or graphics on other sites you frequent. Just don't spam; keep it limited to posting on your profiles or pet pages, please!
Let's keep track!

Remember to check the boards you advertise on for recent LR ads so we don't spam anyone! Only unique boards will be counted, hence asking you to list them in a post in this thread for cross-reference.
Finally. be sure to use one of our the official ads, which one you like to share.
We look forward to seeing what you all can do!
