    Directed primarily to Alien, but I'm interested in other peoples' thoughts, too...

    Other than word-of-mouth, what can we do to help to keep this place growing? I thought to myself, hey, I have a website out there, but I don't have an Alien Soup banner to go up on it. That might be cool...something to think about down the road at least...

    I don't know - what do you all do to let people know this site exists? I'm sure we've all got different techniques. I bring it up every so often in Emails & in conversation..."Didja buy that DVD yet? Why yes I did, thanks to a coupon code I found at this bulletin board I frequent...why, let me tell you about it..."

    Hrm..good point. Once I actually get a webpage up and running again (besides letting you guys know), I'll but an Alien Soup link .

    i think we really need to get cranking on the hot deals board (particularly hardware deals). once that's smoking, you'll see even more action on the soup boards. do you guys agree?

    i'll tell you though, this place has really heated up in the last month or so. pretty amazing ...

    I appreciate your kind thoughts. .

    If you wish to help promote us, there are a couple of things you can do.

    Put our site in your signatures on other forum sites. (Do not blatantly advertise us there in an actual post, unless of course they have a 'other sites' forum).

    Click recommend-it at the top of the page, and e-mail your friends or co-workers to be entered into a contest to win $10,000.

    We also need a couple of banners, I was thinking about a contest for that.. We need a couple of banners of size 468*60, and a 88*31 button to help promote us, since I've had several inquiries for this.

    Also, please be sure to visit dealzconnection.com, and e-mail them telling them that we should be raised back up to 3 stars instead of 2, and a short sentence why! We'd really appreciate this!

    They were quick to respond to us last time, so let's do this in force again!

    Here's a shortcut to their e-mail address: myrating@dealzconnection.com

    Thank you so much!

    Thank you very much guys. I appreciate this.

    If we ban together their isn't anything we can't do.

    . - ah, laughter at another's expense - nothing like it

    you need those banners/buttons, and also a thing that says "a proud member of alien soup" or some such, and also an award - "this site has earned the Alien's Soup Spoon of greatness." boy am i tired

    Band! Band!

    Good suggestions. An award for excellence is a nice idea that would help bring in a lot of hits.

    Hmm.
