I've been testing an idea in my other group where I'm trying to get people to be active. Its not working much. I'm wondering if the group is dying. So some of what I've been doing to encourage activity is do features, a monthly random deviant or signed up deviant interview (a longer in-depth feature with art and words from the deviant) and newsletters where I send out information on group fixes, changes, upcoming events, plans, and ask for feedback from members to improve the group. It all gets ignored. T.T But this group is active. So I may do these kinds of things there. Newsletters I try to give heads ups in like if I'm going afk too and stuff.
