I've heard it said that this site isn't very active these days. I can see that for myself as well. If you want this remnant of Silus's order to be anything more than a little pet project, it might be prudent to consider changing that.... through advertising, more invites, etc.

What is the vision you have for this site Darth Rathas? What is your dream of it, your want, your Passion? Once that question is answered, I'll fulfill the role I offered to play with a suggestion...

I dream for it to be everything it should. I am passionate about making it a large Sith temple, academy, training center. Currently, a member is working on a Sith Archive for us. He is our first Sith historian. I need to know, what exactly to you propose in advertising? I'm trying to get the word out as best as I can.

I was simply saying all the terms commonly used for the same thing
I wish to make them because I had the desire and passion to. With Silus's dead, there was truly none left that would hold to him. I am passionate about it because It is something I feel I must do. All who know me know I hold passion for such things.

Well, simply joining other sites, putting the link in your profile as your homesite, and actively participating at such sites attracts a bit of interest, in my experience.

Aside from that, I suppose formally sending out envoys to sites (primarily only those who deem the ambassador act apropriate) might help, which you could let current members here volunteer for at their leisure {btw, before anyone asks, I'm not personally interested in doing that}. At sites where people would balk at having ambassadors, they usually have forums to post links/resources.

A key point though, at least in my mind, is that if you go to a site just to recruit, there's not likely to be much interest. In associating one's self with a site such as this Order, that person (i.e. their behaviors, their genuine participation and growth through available routes, etc.) is a representation of the Order, and blatant advertisement tends to be a poor representation.

Ultimately, putting the link in your profile and posting it in a section designated for links (if there is one), perhaps along with an occasional invite such as the one I recieved, is probably a good route to go.

The content of the site, its viability as a tool for personal growth, personal evolution, is what really matters though. Having people come here to check things out is easy, but their continued stay tends to depend on their own interests. Build it, and they will come, as the saying goes.

About your passion...

This website, this object of your passion, will only be realized if the hows are discovered/understood. The first step is an awareness of those hows, then exercising influence/power over your reality, of which I'll be glad to point out more of the former (i.e. awareness of the 'hows'). Using that awareness is up to you.

Bravo Draconis, very well said, looks like you have not lost your touch. Truly speaking, you are right on all accounts; as far as it pertains, recruitment is generally pointless if you do not have something to whet the appetite of curiosity possessed by those who come.

On another note, concerning your passion Rathas, it is not a matter of musts or desires, it is merely want, a wish, and working to make it happen; however, that only goes so far unless you have the means to do so, which relates to those hows mentioned already by Draconis, once you have those, it is just a matter of execution. Truly, something may only be done if there is something to be done, but, that should not be a problem.

It is important to keep things up to date, make the members see action makes them return again tommorow...if they come and see nothing,1 2 3 times they may never return...
I have passed through that myself but found a way to deal with it.
Rathas should find a way to do that too.
People must see many "red sith symbols" when they sign in this Order.That is the basic for now, more things may follow, the second step is to make that "red sith symbols" lead to interesting content to the members, maybe even engage them in constructive criticisms and discussions( As many as a good organization should allow, that too is somewhat important)
Even if i have my own Order to take care, i will not give up on this one.
