Featured song is Lifeboat by Gallago. If you're not listening carefully you won't notice that I edited a minute out of the intro of the song

 

Segments of this episode:

- No One Gives a Shit, @Phil ~(1:00-4:00)

- Nodesode Summary/Bathroom Search/Topic Search *TUNE IN TO LEARN @Ptyrell's REAL NAME!* ~(4:00-5:20)

- Housekeeping/Nurx Plugs/Sky Observations (I don't have ADHD, you do) ~(5:30-11:00) @Beketov @nurx @Doomsday @Gustav

- Optimizing the New Member Experience. Drink everytime I say "forum" or "portal." ~(11:00-20:00) @Joe Biden/@Barack Obama @jacobcarson877 @Baozi

 

Enjoy

-Especially when recruitment is dry, I swear 80% of new members are gone by the time anyone even sees they joined.
-I can't imagine the nightmare it would be to program a "tutorial" but you're so right that would be amazing.
-I know there's been talk of a SHL-esque video walkthrough series, but with valid concerns of "who the heck is going to keep it up to date" and tbh I wouldn't want to but someone should.
-We also need a "You have to understand the slightest bit about the sim engine and the attributes" before you're allowed to apply TPE.
-god i'm a waiver addict
-I love that you still giggle about Poopy Peepants
-The player creation and welcome messages are... fine ..., but give you no real reason to read them, although the people who do get off to a WAY better start
- sexy anime tfong waifu? (sorry)
- One decent thing would be an applying TPE lock until you accept a contract? idk probably a nightmare to implement

It might not need to be that complex. Even something as simple as a pop-up after creating a player (similar to a Welfare or PF one) that's like, "Good job! Now to get on a team, find your player thread at https://vhlforum.com/forum/125-create-a-player/ and choose an offer to accept (Note: Many GMs will reply within minutes, but it could be a few hours before you receive your first offer. No stress bru!)"

Yeah this might be good, but it would need to be both very visible and VERY concise. Maybe a 1-2 minute "Quick start guide" or something, and it can be @Hogan speed-running character creation or something like that.

This was a great listen, Jardy! As a new member, I can definitely understand that the retention rate is low because people have no idea what the forum is or what they’re doing. I had read the rules and learned what the VHL was truly about before creating my account and everything, so I don’t think I was too clueless at least? But having a tutorial to help out recruits would definitely be something to consider, for sure, to make it easier for everyone.

Have you not considered the glory of being the voice of the VHL to newbies though?
