Forgive me for yelling it's going on 2 am here and the only thing keeping me awake is this odd crazy energy :P
Ok, cool idea, and I think you older members will like it even more than I do
I'm REALLY new as far as dm goes. Yet it already seems like I've been here forever. And in my short time here, I've seen plenty of members disappear.
Here's my idea: The week or month or whatever that AMoL comes out, a few things happen
1) we have a mega super theme week party that includes and spans across EVERY social group
2) all of you who keep in contact with someone who has "fallen away"--drag them back just for this party :D
I'm trying to think of a theme that would be fitting, but in some ways... Just WoT in general would be. Have different games and cultures and characters and other activities all getting notice everywhere on dm... I can develop that more sometime when I'm not half asleep. But... Imagine a dm-wide party....
A staff member can coordinate it.... Or I can if they don't want to...
The guide thread could be in the general discussion board, and basically everyone would just get to meet people outside their social groups, meet members that they've been hearing stories about for ages, and maybe some of those oldies will come back to stay.
I just think that the last book of the series calls for something special to celebrate.
