PBCity advertisement?

It seems to me that this site has mostly attracted the MCB group and a few others from POG, SCP, etc.

I also understand that we're trying to keep the crowd mature here, and that doesn't normally pair well with 'increased membership.' However, are there plans to advertise PBCity to a larger audience and draw in more of the newer players? I think this could be a really good resource for people who don't want the attitude of PBNation, but would like the knowledge of our old-timers here... The difficulty with bringing them to MCB is that it caters to the ones with vintage markers in their hearts, who care little for the likes of electronic markers and flashy hoppers. I think PBCity could be the 'new and improved PBN,' since we certainly have a great knowledge base, and the forums are varied and interesting. Any thoughts?

I think word of mouth is best... I mean, if it's not good enough to draw people by word of mouth, then it's just not good enough.

It will take time... but as we add usable features, and create a community, then we'll create a following.

If you want to post it in your sigs... that works at other sites...
Use the new gallery, and upload pictures, and use that to link to the photos, that works... People will migrate... but I"m in no rush.

Carter, I think you're right. Plus, sig linking it is a smart way to attract small groups of people at any one time. That way there is no big influx of trash... you can weed out the bad apples at a slow pace...
