Topic: Alliances (Make Recommendations Here)

For those on the lookout for sites similar to our own to build Alliances with or spaces for free advertising, I am reserving this space for you to post links to those sites below. It would be in our best interests to try to find any sites similar to our own to develop a relationship with. Below I will also compile a list of sites pending responses, sites we are allied with, and sites where we currently have advertising.



Allies

Band of Brothers - Safe Haven
Rogue's Run - we are currently negotiating shared advertising, but they have agreed to affiliate with us.

Pending Allies

Diaspora - I have contacted them, awaiting a reply.

Advertising Spaces

The Simming League
Unplugged Gamers (A Facebook Group)
War Against Darkness
Roleplay Market
Distant Fantasies Network
Sim Enc - The Portal
RPers Anonymous

Pending Advertising Spaces

None Currently



As developments occur with other sites I will update the lists.

Distant Fantasies Network

Placed ad on here, using the description from SimEnc.

We need to link back to them: information on doing that is here.

Re: Alliances (Make Recommendations Here)

Link also added here.

Re: Alliances (Make Recommendations Here)

The Distant Fantasies site has lots of places we can link in.

The Roleplay Market listing appears to have done rather well.

Re: Alliances (Make Recommendations Here)

It looks like we can also request that they review individual Sims from our site as well. I've done the site submission in the sidebar, we'll see how they respond (that appears to be how they want submissions).

People have to VOTE. If you click the title, there will be a vote button which you can do once every day. As it gets more votes, it climbs the ladder!

Yes, but....but....but HOW ARE WE SO HIGH UP?!

Re: Alliances (Make Recommendations Here)

It's not just votes; which are only part of the total. We've only had one vote. It's ratings as well; and we're clearly rating very highly.

(I've just bumped us to 4th by following the link to us from there).

Yeah I just noticed the ratings bit.

Really? For some reason I was convinced it was only showing your personal votes for the site (don't know where I got that idea). More people need to link over and vote! I noticed there's HTML code for voting from the site:

<a href="http://www.roleplaymarket.com/links.aspx?vote=169" title="Roleplay Market links directory / topsites"><img src="http://www.roleplaymarket.com/linkimage.aspx?siteID=169" alt="Roleplay Market links directory / topsites"></a>

Euan, would you add this to the main page?

EDIT: Oh and now we're #1 with a score of 270 now that I've also given us a rating as well as a review.

Re: Alliances (Make Recommendations Here)

Just a note to everyone to say this thread is very much open again, with Robert as Alliance Building Officer and Silent his Deputy. Please all feel free to post links to sites you think we should check out.

Robert and Silent are emailing our allies across the net to let them know of our relaunch. :-)

Re: Alliances (Make Recommendations Here)

How about SB118, a Star Trek Play-by-Email Role Playing Community? [Link removed due to virus concerns - Deputy GC]
And RPG-D or RPG Directory?
