    Exclamation How to Recruit: A Guide to Neighborhood Recruitment

    Forumers were asked for their input on recruitment tips for a recruitment guide. This thread contains those tips, as well as some additional information that should be useful in helping you recruit for your neighborhood.


    Recruitment Thread Titles


    Do



    • Put your NH name in the title
    • Put your NH ID in the title
    • Use a constant title that does not need changing often
    • Make a title that is high quality, informative and attractive



    Title Changes

    If you need the title of your recruitment thread changed, PM a moderator. Please include a link to the recruitment thread for a faster response.

    Any edits needed in the post itself can be done by the person who created the thread.


    NH Description


    Do


    • Mention the goal/goals of your NH
    • Mention your number of medals
    • Mention how long your NH has been around
    • Mention what you expect of new members
    • Mention anything you offer new members
    • Put what kind of NH you are: casual, lazy, hard-working, friendly, non-talkative, must talk
    • Mention your derby rules: Are other NH members required to spend diamonds? What are your task trashing rules?
    • Mention other rules you have: What's allowed? What's not allowed? Do you have rules for trading? Do you have rules about boat help and/or watering help? Do you have townie rules?
    • Put your derby level
    • Put any age minimums or maximums
    • Put any level requirements
    • Mention language requirements
    • Mention any rules regarding donations and/or upgrading/expanding
    • Tell a bit about your NH. What is your NH like?
    • Mention what members can expect from your NH
    • Specify if you seek only members who speak a certain language and/or from a certain country
    • Put in any additional qualifications you seek from potential members
    • Be honest in your post. Tell potential members what your NH is really like.
    • Use eye-catching colors. Underline and bold as needed to show emphasize important stuff. Consider the readability of your post.
    • Bump once a day so as to have maximum visibility
    • End with something like "We hope to see you soon!"
    • Keep it simple
    • Be honest and frank
    • Don't have too many rules, as some are turned off by too many rules
    • Consider a meme or joke, just something to make people laugh.
    • Mention if you use Facebook or any other communication app to communicate with NH members
    • Bump at different times of the day to get members worldwide (but keep in mind the bumping rules)
    • Feel it's okay to wait for quality NH members over filling openings
    • Read this post as well, as it offers some great feedback better read in its entirety




    Always put your NH name and NH ID in the recruitment thread so that players can find your NH. You have no idea how many times this goes missed. People will join, but only if they know how to find you.





    Bumping

    What is bumping?

    Bumping is how you get your recruitment thread to the top of the page. BUMP means "bring up my post".

    When any post is made on your recruitment thread, the thread is "bumped" to the top of the page, which is why there are rules in place for bumping to keep it fair for everyone else trying to recruit.

    How do I bump?

    Since any thread is "bumped" to the top of the page when a reply is made, all you need to do is post a reply on on your recruitment thread. Just go to your thread and click on the "reply" button. Hit the green "reply to thread" button when done and there you are, your thread is bumped.

    What do I say when I bump?

    Some say "bump this thread" or "bumpity bump". One forumer gives fun did-you-know tips. Others give updates on how their NH is doing in the derby. Do whatever feels right to you and your NH. Keep it according to the forum rules, of course.

    Can I delete old bumping posts on my thread?

    As long as it is in accordance with the bumping rules, you can delete old bumping posts.


    Recruitment Rules Reminder: As per the recruitment rules, each NH can have one recruitment thread and they can bump this one recruitment thread once a day. Bumping and deleting multiple times in one day is a violation of the rules, as is having multiple recruitment threads for the same NH (even by different NH members).

    Also: If multiple people will be bumping the recruitment thread, you must coordinate with them to determine who will bump the thread when.



    Etiquette

    For the best results, keep the following in mind:


    • Never ever hijack another recruitment thread to recruit for your own NH.
    • Follow the recruitment rules: only create one recruitment thread and only bump it once a day. Deleting posts and bumping multiple times a day is against the rules and can earn you a warning or infraction.
    • Don't shame another NH in their thread or elsewhere on the forum. If you find someone has posted something inappropriate, sent you a harassing VM or PM, please report the post, VM or PM by locating the button that has a ! in a triangle. Provide a brief reason for the report and this report will then go to mods who will then handle the report.






    Sending Private Messages or PMs


    To send a PM (private message): click/tap on the name of the person you want to PM. An option to send a PM to them appears. Alternatively, you can also go to top right of the page: notifications > inbox > send new message > type the name of the person you want to PM.



    Stuck? Have questions? PM a moderator. See this page for a list of mods.

    I am going to leave this stickied thread open in case anyone has questions or other suggestions.


    PleaseDO NOT recruit in this thread.

    Please do that in your recruitment thread or in "I am looking for a NH" threads.

    This post is great advice. I do wish some people would not repost every day after only 22-25 hours.

    Iíve read & understood the dos and doníts for advertising my hood, but all I see are messages that say ďdonít put your ad hereĒ. WHERE can I put my lovely hood to find more neighbours? An actual link to the correct page/place would be really handy!

    Red face Chit Chat UK Farm tag: PLC2826V seeks new, friendly neighbours

    I don't understand how this forum works! It says I have 7 replies to my former message but I don't see how I can read them. I just want to start a recruitment thread for my hood. I'm going to add it to this message. If this is not the right place to put it somebody tell me where it should go or give me a link in a reply that gets me to the correct place.

    I just like playing Hay Day! And I want more people in my hood! I am not an online wizard!!! But I am a darn good neighbour and we have a great little hood!

    Here is my add. IF you want to reply please do it in my messages, because I know how to retrieve those. Although 7 people replied to my former message there were no messages in my inbox. And I could not figure out how to see them. Put your replies in my inbox and I will respond to each one.

    Thank you for your patience!!

    If I am being totally dense please forgive! We have a great hood so here is my recruitment pitch:

    We have room for 20 new neighbours, and are willing to have another hood with similar goals join ours. We are friendly, love to chat, help, and have fun. So far we are all ladies from all over the globe, though we started in England. English speaking is a must, level 49 required, but we really wish for more people at 100+. If you are a daily, chatty, polite (we really go for pleases and thank yous!) player, and offer as much help as you ask for give us a chance! We do not required you to be in the derby, but IF you opt in you will be instantly promoted to be able to trash tasks, and must complete all tasks at 310+ points. When you aren't in the derby we ask you to support those who are by helping them with their tasks. We are currently in the Champions League and all love the valley so are active in it. OUR NUMBER ONE RULE? HAVE FUN!!


    my farm name is Bess' Happy Farm, tag 822G2L29

    PS: you don't have to be a woman to join us! Just be friendly, speak very good English, and stop by to check us out!
