However, lately I have noticed that some of us are going a long time waiting for the next person to come along and prescribe a book for us to read.
I did some checking and it doesn't seem that the creator of this group is around LT anymore. The last time InigoMontoya entered a book was April 2012, and before that one book it was June of 2011.
What does everyone think about seeing if we can transfer administratorship of this group to a more active member? (I'm not sure if people would perceive this as rude or something, but I don't mean it that way.)
Also, any ideas for enticing people to join? Or maybe you think we've got enough people? Just wondering what people's perceptions are and how they're feeling about this group.
As for enticing people to join - perhaps some sort of "advertising campaign" for the group can be devised.
More people might help in faster "perscribing times". But mostly, I think, the speed at which a book is chosen depends on how fast people finish their books. Sometimes it seems that a whole batch of people is finished at roughly the same time, and then it takes a while before people have finished their books. A possible solution would be to have a set time for waiting - for instance, two weeks - and if after that time no-one on the group has finished a book, you would still have some chosing a book for you. A sort-of pinch hit. But that would change the way the game is played, so it's something all (active) members should discuss.
I don't know that we need a change in the rules, everyone should be able to read at their own pace, but you're right in that more group members would help make it more often that people are finishing books and posting.
I like the idea of an advertising campaign, but I don't really have any ideas about what that would look like. Possibly getting ourselves some sort of featured group status?
A while ago I used the "Invite members to join" link on the group home page to tell my LibraryThing friends about this group, and one of them has since joined (although I'm only assuming that was because of my invitation).
If all the active members invite all their friends, maybe we will get some more members.
Whenever I review a GRTB book, I mention it in my review and on the group threads where I post.
I'm going to add it to my group tracking threads as a separate post - that'll remind me what I should be reading and hopefully also help to give the group some visibility too.
