In order for the Archive to be successful, we need your help. We need your help in two significant ways: posting your content to the Archive, and helping us get the word out to other hobbyists so that they will join us and help us grow.|
There are a variety of ways you can help us grow readership and membership. One way you can help us spread the word is to include a link to the Archive in your signatures at the bottom of your emails, or also at the bottom of your posts on other forums and blogs. If you're interested in this, please see your profile page for how to do that. It provides some sample text and code that you can use to place in your email and/or forum signatures that will display a link to the Archive, and also to your personal page of topics (your "blog") here on the Archive.
Many of you are members of the OGR Forum, which is a fantastic discussion board on O Gauge model RR'ing. Many members have helped out the Archive by placing a signature in their OGR profile that includes a link to the Archive in all of their posts. This is a great way to make more people aware of what we're doing here, and to attract more interest, more members, and most importantly, more cool content!
For step-by-step instructions on how to place a link to the J&C Studios Archive in your OGR signature, see the help page on it: OGR Signature Help.
Another way you might be able to help us is by placing a link to the Archive on your website, blog, Facebook page, or business web site. Please see our Friends page for details on how to do that. If you need any assistance, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Archive may be interested in exchanging links with your site. We can place links to your website in key areas, if you place a link to us on your site. This can help you receive better page ranks in the search engines, and can also help drive readers to your site. This is handled on a case-by-case basis, so if you're interested, please contact me: email@example.com.
Thanks for reading, and please consider talking to your friends and fellow hobbyists about the Archive. The more interested members we have, the more opportunities the Archive has to grow and enrich all of our hobby experiences.
