I remember back when it was a big thing that FOX was acquiring WIS (as I'm sure anyone who has been here for many years also remembers). Many of us were excited because we thought it would mean FOX using their mutli-media platform of web, television, etc. to advertise the site, which would mean more members and a much better experience.
I'm still not sure why that hasn't happened. It's not like FOX doesn't have the resources to get it done. It wouldn't cost much to run simple ads on their other websites, especially FoxSports, which with proper placement would easily drive a lot of traffic to this site and get some people to play the games.
There ARE people out there who would play these games A LOT if they only knew the site existed. Word of mouth was the biggest thing years ago as far as I know, and unfortunately that seems to still be the case. I came to the site through word of mouth, as I was on another site's message board and someone posted about how they loved WIS. I visited the site and joined shortly thereafter.
Think of all the people who would see an ad on one of FoxSports pages properly placed and designed to get people to visit WIS. Many of them would do so and would become aware of the site, and many of those would join and play. Maybe they already do SOME of what I'm discussing here, but I think it could be done more and better.
I'm really not being critical here; I just want the same thing I think they want, which is more people on this site and playing the games. Just get the word out that the site exists and what it does and you WILL get more people here playing the games.
