Hi there,

I've got a small co-op which works hard - we're just 3 members and usually finish in gold or silver.  I occasionally scout for new members and recently had 2 join however 1 never plays regattas, whilst the other newbie has just completed 1 or 2 tasks.  

How do I get new members who are dedicated players as most players I see are already in co-ops.  

Thanks

A few suggestions:

1. State upfront the Co op rules and maintain the rules. Kick people who do not follow. Rules - minimum tasks requirement for regatta etc

2. Have good helps stats. The best is everybody in the Co op has equal amount. In my previous Co op, though members come and go, but there will always be people willing to join because that group has a better helps stats then other Co op. And that better is everybody has a 100 helps start. No big fat ZERO. Though the minus points is that a few of them have higher helps stats - (which implies they hoard requests or if they are nt around, helps won't get done)

To add to Calliie's great suggestions:

Put the rules right in the intro. That way you don't get non-players or can boot them more easily when they don't follow the rules. 

Be strict. You'd be surprised how many players really want a coop where the rules are followed so it's easier on everyone. You can lose good players by letting people stay(race) that aren't contributing. Nobody likes to feel used. We've had people join based on where we finished in regatta.

If someone has been playing a while they know what they want for regatta. They know what level of tasks they can/will do and the more specific you are in telling them the easier it is on everyone.

I know that when I look for co-ops, I look at how the members help each other and whether or not it seems to be good at racing.  Once I join, I ask a bunch of questions and try to show I'm engaged and know what I'm doing with the game.  Often I join co-ops that say in their description 16*135, or 125+ no reserves, or something that shows they know the game too and are serious about racing.

But yes, like @Willow Mist said, strictness is key.  I was in a great helpful co-op that raced well, and I left partially because the rules were slightly unclear to me and the strictness wasn't there.

Ok, well, @BlueSkyTown Sandy...guess we'll just hijack other convenient threads until there IS PM'ing XD (jk jk)  Very Happy

But I also had the thought that if you who have started this wonderful thread want more members, get your fellow co-op members to help others a lot and invite their friends, personalizing the invite message.  I'm more likely to consider a co-op request from someone who helps me a lot and takes the time to invite me personally.

Thank you all who responded, I've got some ideas now.

I always send personally written invites which has helped get two new members, just a shame that one never plays regattas and the other only took part in one or two tasks :-( whilst our team of three play right to the final minute and complete as many tasks as we can (I'm on my 15th today).

Hi, the best way to get new members is to advertise here. Include as much info as possible - rules, etc

Keep your status as "by request". Serious players will not mind waiting.

I find that you need at least 4 good racers to get all the chests.

Or you could include your co-op name in your signature block when posting a comment/question. (If you want to have people join you.)
