I had about 2 hour long discussion with CEan - Kshitij about the quality of posts that we get here on CE.

First of all, I am not sure if we can do anything about controlling the quality of the questions that we get. As we've discussed earlier, most of the posts/queries that we get in our technical discussions sections are related to final year engineering seminar topics or project ideas. Some even ask for the ready made PPT / reports.

As far as improving the registration rate is concerned, there are couple of things that can be done -

  1. Having quality discussions - its a responsibility of our existing active CEans. If we can come up with interesting discussions, people will join in.
  2. Having competitions & prizes : This is something that we have recently started. I am in the process of talking to companies for sponsoring our competitions. That will help us have bigger & better prizes for our competitions.
  3. Offline meets: We'll get started with this soon.
  4. Word of mouth - This works the best. Mention about CE to your friends/colleagues/relatives. We aren't a waste-your-time-here website, so I bet most of them will like us.
  5. Getting interesting people / achievers in our Small Talk section. CEan - xHeavenlyx got in touch with the Hack - a -day guys and asked them for small talk. That's a very good initiative. I guess we need to expand our editorial team soon.
  6. Forming groups : viz. CE College Correspondent (to bring us all the latest news from his/her college , CE - Promoter Team, CE Editorial Team, CE Moderators, CE - Offline Meet organizers etc. Possibilities are limitless, we got to give this a serious thought.
  7. Participating in activities/events as CEans. Feel free to use our name to participate in any competition/ activity. Of course, do let us know before you use our brand name 😁.
These are just couple of ideas. More ideas/thoughts/comments are welcome!

Hah, that's being weasel 😁 . We aren't here to hide information to 'boost' registration rate.

And it doesn't help to have members just signing up to see what's in. We need people who are interested in engineering.

I like the blogger Ad concept! Can we have these blogger badges dynamic somehow.
