Look, I know this is a pretty controversial topic, but it should be discussed, saying the forum is dying is prob a bit of an exaggeration, but obviously there's a lot less users than were at its peak. There's a reason for this. It's the same reason I even joined this forum in the first place. Advertising. Serge wont advertise the website, that's not his fault, i'm sure there are monetary reasons why he wont, and that's completely understandable, however the reason why/how this forum got new users, including myself, was because of free advertising, YouTubers, and content creators have done, usually negative press.

For example the reason I even heard of this website, was because of a YouTube video that was slandering Incels, and I wanted to join, because, while at the time I primarily used /r9k/, it was being overrun with trannies/the trap agenda, and I wanted somewhere better, and this place overall IS better, and we need more users.

How do we solve this? Easily. Several months ago, probably a little over a year at this point, I was a moderator/admin on some very large /r9k/ and 4chan discord servers, they amassed hundreds to thousands of new members because I was primarily responsible for attracting new members, using various different schemes, tactics, etc.

One tactic I found that is very very very successful is the what I like to call The Watermark Option.

The Watermark option is very simple, and is how many websites found new traffic to their website. The biggest successful examples of this would be these
117261
117262
117263

Ignoring the staleness of the meme, you get the point, if you have used the internet to any serious degree, i'm sure you've seen memes with these watermarks, well the same thing can be done by you, to anything really, very simply, using even a basic program like Microsoft Paint, which is just about on everyone's computer, on basically every version of windows. You see what I did in the past to advertise some servers is I would put a little watermark on an image, and spread the image around, whether it be on 4chan/Reddit/Etc, it doesn't really matter, it got the job done, no matter what the image was, what the meme was, what the webm was, what the gif was, whatever it was, you'd see a little watermark on it.

You can't really get banned for watermarks, you can typically just give an excuse of, "I downloaded it that way in the first place" or something like that.
117264



Here's an example of me using this watermark using only paint, this took less than a minute to do, and anyone can do it, and add it to any image.
117266

You can resize, reshape, or even make your own watermarks, you can add them to a corner of a youtube video, to a corner of a webm you found to spread on /gif/ on 4chan or 8ch, you can use a normie alt on reddit and post various different memes and such to try and get upvotes to try and get people to join, you can pretend you're using the watermark ironically, just a joke, to make the meme more funny, as one of the watermark examples above showed with multiple watarmarks of various different websites, you get the idea.

Now you may be thinking, "well wont this attract a lot of normies to the website, I don't really want them invading our personal space" that's what the vetting process is for, you see all you'll be doing is alerting and interesting more people to the website, if they're an Incel, and relate to the issues at hand, they'll sign up, tell their story, and they'll be a member, if they try and bullshit or are a normie, i'm sure Knajjd or one of the various other mods will prevent them being an actual member.

If you want this website to be much more active again, you need to do your part, and this isn't just for us to get members, there are many important truths, and arguments discussed on this forum, the more people who join, the better it is for men, and Incels as a whole.

If you use and upload things to, 4chan, 8ch, Reddit, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, etc, do your part, add the watermark, or a watermark to everything you upload, every meme you post, every image, video, gif, webm, etc. It does not take a lot of effort. Do this, and people will come in. I know because I have done this method before, and thousands of people came into various shitty active discord servers, I used to moderate and run. There are other methods aswell, and feel free to discuss them, but I have vast knowledge and experience on this topic specifically. Advertising has always been my skill.

Jannies/Mods/Admin, please pin this thread if you would, this is important, even if the title to the thread is a little clickbaity.

Or permabans should be given out to real larpers and fakes. And just longer temps for others.
Also advertising is useless, if someone is truly blackpilled they will find their way. Promoting it for normfags isnt plausible.

Why? They wont make it through the vetting process if they're not actually an Incel.

True enough but normalfags can easily just lie their way into joining the site. But knowing some of the mods, they can easily just ban them on the spot win the first day.

There'll be an uptick of users once the BBC documentary comes out. People had the same concerns about the forum dying pre-AM due to the lack of active users.

Our memes are very rarely posted in a watermarkable format tbh. People here just make written posts, sometimes with pictures added.
This could work for braincels, not us

Agreed, this forum has strict admission process which is necessary in my opinion. But we are banning some of our already members for reasons I don't get. I just joined May 1st but some of this forums most active users have been banned from it and I miss their posts

They don't even have to be our memes, they just have to be memes/content in general, the more advertising the better, this has always been the case.

I think the "incel panic" which brought a lot of attention to incel websites has had its moment, so not as many people will have places like this brought to their attention, which isn't a bad thing really. I also think that trying to do PR for men who can't have sex is a futile gesture, the contempt is simply too hardwired into peoples' brains.

IDK bro, somehow it wouldn't feel like it's in our character. People go to 9gag etc. and find shitloads of memes, when they visit here they won't find anything of the sort.
The most effective ads for us are incels going ER tbh

Unless it gets cracked down on, this site will exist as long as incels exist. Anyways, the BBC documentary or some good event like another ER will bring new users and activity will increase.

Online communities always go to shit the bigger the userbase becomes. You should know this since you have seen this happen with /r9k/ and 4chan in general. Attracting more people just means attracting more shitposters. Sure, there's going to be some genuine incels mixed in with the newcomers but at least half of them are going to be here just to bait. I have never seen an online community improve by getting bigger, it always brings in unwanted elements.
Those who identify with inceldom will find this place on their own, the term "incel" is already well-known enough so anyone who looks up the definition and sympathises with it will get curious and look up this place.

No.

I don't want normies and fakecels infiltrating this forum.

If they're an Incel. They'll find their way here (Either through r/Braincels or cucktears).

The moment you promote this site then being 'incel' will just become a trend normies will adopt to be seen as edgy and different from their normie peers and we'll get flooded with fakecels and LARPers. Look at what happened to /r9k/...go there now and it is literally just normies roleplaying as robots because they adopted board culture and changed it to suit themselves...same thing would happen here.

This place isn't supposed to bolster numbers or even remain hugely active. It's a place of solace for incels to talk freely with each other and not worry about normies invading and setting new standards and a new culture to alienate us from our own group.

Just allow shit posting and blue pilled normies. When you let people shit post eventually they'll learn to think of creative/original posts.

Without them you won't have much content.

Plus allowing blue pills gives us new people to convert.

Unban everyone, and allow traps/tranny posts.

Problem solved
unpopular opinion
The rules are way to strict and with everyone having the same oppinion there is nothing to discuss.

Couldn't agree more. Advertising here on normie channels/platforms would just attract larpers and infiltrators. I also don't mind low activity if it means that the post quality is good and there is no gay shit or tranny shit. Quality over quantity, always.

Agreed, it does suck when you see posters that you know get banned by the mods. I'm also happy that this forum isn't as big as it is.

Even if they do somehow make it in, we have seen several times people getting exposed and getting banned for being inconsistent liars/normies/sex havers. Even if they stick around for a few months. While I personally would be harsher on sex havers as a whole, instead of irrelevant things such as, "low effort posting" or "racebaiting" i'd be lying if I said there haven't been a few prominent fakecels who have been exposed and were banned.

All publicity is good publicity, especially when you are in one of the most hated groups in the western world. I haven't really seen any good arguments to why this site shouldn't grow and have more users.

I don't know to what degree the mods can handle the situation when hundreds of randoms no trustees can vouch for pour in and start wrecking havoc.

The mods are adamant about not letting tha happen, but that can quickly change. That is why I'm so doubtful about this suggestion.

Most new users were randoms that nobody could vouch for, how many people are even talking to eachother outside of the forum? Probably not a lot, sure doesn't help when active off site communities are banned, or shun people not in the in group.

This site shouldn't be an "in group" either, it should be a site for Incels regardless.

Just get rid of the safe space rules like racism, flaming etc., only exception is if a user goes overboard like only posting about race. This will filter extreme polfags and stormfags and more racism/flaming will further alienate fakecels/normalfags and make them less likely to want to join. This is not reddit and if someone can't handle being called a word they should go back there and downvote/report mean racists and flamers.
We should advertise more on braincels, but mods will have a lot of work to do with all the new applications.

Get rid of any and all NSFW bullshit rules because just browsing this site in public is NSFW. Stop permabanning users with the exception of sex-havers, normalfags and bluepillers. Also chadworship is a meme. You should be able to post any image you want and you can't deny this forum has a lot in common with lookism. Sometimes you need to post an image to make a point. I'd also allow lookism related avatars. We need a bit more freedom basically.
There needs to be more incentives for potential incels to join this forum. Maybe add a like system (but no dislikes/downvotes) like on looksmax. I know it's a normgroid feature, but people like it.

There isn't really much you can do about it when google throttles the search results and places like r9k and braincels are actively hostile to the site.

You convinced me, I have changed my opinion. Another idea I have is that maybe we could open up our own wiki (I know there is an incel wiki, but it isn't related with this site) in order to circumvent (((google)))'s kike shenanigans, at least until they catch up. What do you guys think?

Brendioeee, you are visibly a good looking fakecel. Just gtfo you motherfuckin attention seeker

I think creating a new site would be a waste of resources, unless there's a way to do it for free on another existing website, I don't really think it'd matter that much in the grand scheme of things either. I'm pretty sure the wiki gets minimal traffic in comparison to the forum.
