Corona Player Retention Ideas
Being that VFK is seeing a much higher volume of activity with so many old players popping back in, I think that we should give them a reason to stay. With so many people coming back, it feels incredibly nostalgic back to the old days where we had host events every day, and other fun things to do. Now, it seems that we just have a bunch of chores to do with all of these tedious tasks. Tasks are not going to keep old players around.
Instead, I want to propose that we do some fun things over the next two weeks.
- Plague/Pandemic Antiques ----- THIS ISN'T MAKING A JOKE OUT OF THE CORONA VIRUS. This is just something that's actually happening in the world right now.
- Here, I would recommend just a few antiques. Two days, half an hour each day, 6 releases per day with 2-3 items per release, some of them being repeats. We could do things like the plague doctor outfit which would be unisex, two pins, one with the face of a plague doctor, and then one with a microscope sample of a virus that moves. A painting could be just a blown up version of the pin and then just some furniture pieces in a black/purple/grey scheme.
- Host events
- I think that since so many people are quarentined to their homes, having more host events would show that VFK cares about retaining new members as well as old members who came back. I understand that our community is rather small, and that the staff size is also rather small, however, I'm sure a lot of us would even be happy with recolors of some old items
