A secret door image :lol:
There will have to be content there or at least a hint per thread that we want to advertise. Otherwise there will be no people in the group |_P
I will have to find out how to work Facebook properly then. :)

Yeah a good way to get people to the site would be to just post the url of the Inn article you want to link to. Maybe a short descriotion in the post. People would need to click and come here to read it.
What happens when you share a link like that is you get the name of the Inn post/thread plus a preview pic on facebook (which as of now shows the Inn add of this HQ soundapp).

I just quickly throw the page up there, it needs to be tweaked....alot. That is a great idea about the secret door.
Anyone that wants to help, I'm more then welcome to suggestions.

I'm also in contact with the other group. Trying to see if we can piggyback on their page. They normally would say no, but sense it's the Inn and everything we have done. They maybe willing to accept.

How is it if one posts a pic and then the link? Is the preview then the pic plus a standard blue text link?

I'm on twitter, and have a good idea of how to navigate, so it would be easy for me to start a twitter account
and get some people to be friends on it. I wouldn't really have the time to moderate it often, and I really don't
know what sort of content that could be put on it to keep people involved.

Unfortunately, with twitter, involvement, new tweets every day, or at least every couple of days, is the only
way to spread and grow as an account. The only thing I can think to do is just to go back through some of the
really good/important posts here and start tweeting about them, including a link to the thread...you know,
some of the REALLY old posts with new quest books, deep threads about system rules or homebrew ideas, etc.
It would take a while, but it could be done...

If I started the account, I could pass on the login info to the mods here so they could all help tweeting stuff.

But again, I don't know about actually moderating on twitter. Honestly, I'm not even sure how that sort of thing
works on twitter - it is not like on facebook, where you can allow people to join and kick them out if they cause
trouble.

And I just now checked it out - if you do a "heroquest" search on twitter, there seem to be quite a few posts.
I could go through and start asking those making those tweets if they know about the inn, leaving a link to
the front page. :)

That is not a bad idea at all.

I'm working on the details with the other group.

They don't want group sharing, but from my understanding they will let me post the website with a comment about the Inn page.

This.

I was thinking the other day it would be cool if the Inn had a sticky "best of"/"go to"- thread, like where you can find a collection of links to threads with the essential resources, best homebrew, homemade questpacks, etc. THE archive. Maybe this comes out of it as a byproduct :D
