So I just thought I'd raise the matter of advertising, recruitment, and the group's funds and assets with which it does such.
I can't help but notice that the SFMB is still fairly small and it's beginning to slide down slightly from its prior ranking of second or third largest minibuilding group what with seemingly a bit stale growth rate and lack of obvious efforts at recruiting. The SFMB of course isn't inactive or anything like that (though we do have a fair bit of dead weight, which may be a concern if that dead weight grows to similar proportions as that of the UMB what with their 500 members and maybe at most 20 active), it just never hurts to keep enabling the group to grow.
From what I can tell, the SFMB has about 1.2K Tix, which isn't nothing but probably not enough for many ads or for many days of one ad, and the only ad for the SFMB I'm aware of is an old one I made a while back. So, the SFMB probably is in need of money and new ads should it ever go back to focusing on recruitment. Of course, there are other ways to recruit which should probably be focused on too, like going to places, talking to people, messaging people, asking friends, bringing lots of attention to a server (maybe by filling it up), stuff like that.
On the matter of ads, here's two I just made (middle, right) as well as the old one (left): 200px200px200px (Personally prefer the right, though middle is simple and nice; left is fine but outdated. Of course obviously others could make up ads too.)
Again, of course the group is active and doing well so this isn't a pressing issue or anything, I just thought I'd open up some discussion on the matter since it never hurts to keep encouraging the group to grow.
