*** MRG Recruiting Strategies ***
 
As you may know, this site is a continuation of Achilles' original group. The old place does have some good content; new MRG members should read a few of their posts, especially the two that have been reproduced below.

How to recruit newbies into the Mars Explorer community
 
Step One: Find a server with lots of unregistered users
 
Unregistered users in Mars Explorer are mainly "newbies" - it's quite easy these days to find servers with a couple or more users like these.
 
 
Step Two: Get people to chat
 
Getting newbies to chat these days are quite hard as many are timid or sometimes just rude. When a newbie chats with you, it can show that they have reached a level of advancement and are almost ready to become part of the Mars Explorer community. The easiest way to get a newbie to chat is just to say "Does anyone want to chat?". :D
 
 
Step Three: Inform them of accounts
 
When I first came to Mars Explorer I didn't know the difference between an unregistered username and an account. So for several months I only came online with my unregistered name. Once you get a newbie or unregistered user to chat, inform them of the difference between unregistered usernames and registered accounts.
 
 
Step Four: Introduce them to experienced members
 
If it wasn't for Kruncher, I would have never decided to become an active part of the Mars Explorer community. Make sure that they know the names/accounts of the experienced people (i.e. TheDude, Achilles, Kruncher, Pointy Bagels, etc.)
 
 
Step Five: Introduce them to the forum
 
A good way for newbies to quickly become an active part of Mars Explorer they will need to post on the forum. Posting allows us "experienced" users to get to know more about them.

Method for actually getting 'good' unregistered players
 
Even though the goal of this group is to get more registered players, we need to get the RIGHT people.
 
What I like to do:
 
1. Server hop: I go from server to server in search of talented newbies. If I find someone with adequate talent, I engage conversation.
 
2. TALK!!! Tell them that they are pretty good and that they should register.
 
3. When they agree, tell them about all the features that they now have access to. If they don't want to, tell them anyway. :-)
 
"After you have made your account, introduce yourself on the forum! That way, you meet the experienced players and get friends: no one wants to be friendless! Also, ask for tips. That way, you become a better player. Also, try playing the actual game with your new account. Remember to login! If you have any questions, just talk to me or look it up on the forum. Remember, look before posting, as this annoys many people. Finally, have fun! Play the game and respect other players!"
 
or something like that.
 
REMEMBER NOT TO GET POTENTIAL NOOBS. THAT IS NOT THE POINT!!!!!
 
All right, I hope this helps!
