Though it's definitely true there has been an uptick in the overall number of politics related topics. I'm actually trying to bring more non-politics related traffic here, I got a free advertising credit on facebook and I used it to run ads for 10 days directed towards people with interests in various media related things like movies, tv, music, anime, and video games. So far, results aren't great though. about 1,400 people have seen the ad, only 6 have actually clicked it, and as far as I can tell, zero of those have actually signed up or even posted.

    Growing T5 is going to be a lot harder than I thought if these are the realistic returns of investing in advertising.
    -Look into SEO if you haven't. Higher listings in Google is probably your best bet.

    -Let spider bots do their thing!

    -If you're paying for advertising make sure to pay per click and not how many times the ad has been shown.

    -Try to recruit people with some following to sign up and post. Want more Vs content? Get Seththeprogrammer in here or someone like him who posts videos. (yea I know, lots of work.. get an admin on it. :P)

          I've read into SEO optimization but I haven't had the time to really try to implement anything, you know? I know it's the most important thing I can do. But damn, it's time consuming. lol. I'm not paying for advertising. I can't afford that. Saw an add for a free $30 in advertising on Facebook and decided to see what it'd do, the answer seems to be "not much" so I'll know that Facebook is definitely not the correct route to take in the future. I've talked to a handful of people about partnering with them to help bring some new members and give them a place for their community to post. But nothing really ever came of it. I'll have to try harder when things calm down for me in the future.

            Just to clarify my knowledge of SEO is limited but from what I recall it is basically using keywords for your website in the meta tag and constantly looking to see where you show up in the listings of Google search or whatever search engine you are trying to get higher listings at. Google also tests the website for errors, speed and performance so improving on those also helps with higher search results. I wish you luck in it all!

                      i think the more pressing question is, why did u let ur phone battery get to 15%

                      were u out when u made this

                      tf man, what if you need to go somewhere and you dont get the chance to chsrge it for awhile, or the zombie apocalypse happens. 15% is what like 48 hours max if u absolutely minimize ur phone use, and thats assuming ur battery isnt super-old

                              I mean if you want to discuss politics so much surely you can do better than the offshoot of a Malaysian lima bean harvesting forum.

                                It's here or Facebook. The options aren't great, but at least I can ban people here.

                                  That's understandable tbh.

                                    I have minimal knowledge on politics, so the number of political threads on T5 is quite bothersome.

                                    People just want something to argue over the internet with someone who's opinion isn't as correct as their own.

                                      All things are inherently political, as politics effect every aspect of our lives.

                                        Because politics are getting so fucking stupid the bar for entry regarding political debates is low.
                                        A fucking 6-year old kid could land a slam-dunk on some of the people participating in political debates these days—especially on feminists, but that's a given.
