2019 Dream tokens - getting ppl to vote

W walto Public Seen by 39

Hi folks,

We need more ticket holders to vote on the dreams platform. More background:

Although probably our timing (voting close date=date last submission dream) contributes to the lack of votes, I believe we can ramp up participation significantly. Borderland also struggled with the issue of a low participation rate in voting on dreams in the first years.

What helped in the past was a very personal, non-mailchimp email. At least, it helped for me, and, from what I gathered from Hugi, it also helped Borderland.

What do you think of the below format of email to really get ppl to vote on dreams this year? I am happy to use my personal email, but anybody else that feels they might be well placed to send this, happy for that as well (@saskia31 or @henrik or @remyschneider or one of the many others that helped make this dreams process a success this year?)

we are working on the email formulation here:

Feel free to join the editing rampage! We would like to finalize the email today sometime.

Target: send it to everyone who has not spent all of their dream tokens

Theme camps pushing their members should help as well! We still have some Saloonies who didn't manage to spend their tokens yet.

lolz, made a stupid mistake with the subject line with one email.... making several emails... I mess up :/

I hope this does cause a bit of a spike in voting participation though.

For transparancy. As of midday 1/05, we had, from all ticket holders:
- 175 ppl who have registered on Dreams but did not complete voting yet
- 392 who had not registered on Dreams yet

Let's see how far we get... :D

About 50% of the recipients of the email opened the email according to tracking... Very curious :)
