Hi all,

I was talking with Jameson about ways to spread the word about our site, and Ackbach has posted a global announcement about it as well.

Since we're still a growing community, I think it would be a good idea to make a flyer for advertising purposes. Jameson told me he made one, and I'm in the process of making one.

If you would like to make one, feel free to share it here with us. I'm thinking that we should pick the best one once we have enough of them. In the mean time, post your flyers on your bulletin boards at school and whatnot!!! (Bigsmile)

Re: A Call for Flyers to Advertise MHB

Ok this is my first attempt, only focusing on the general language style and information on the flyer. It's not the best looking now but that can be tweaked later. I just want to know if the general outline is good.

Re: A Call for Flyers to Advertise MHB

Seems good to me. I like that the message is given in the first line.

Is it possible to add my favorite subject, logic, after number theory?

Sure, will wait for more comments then try to apply them all together.

Re: A Call for Flyers to Advertise MHB

I remember this but didn't respond for some reason. I apologize. Normally try give feedback on all ideas so it wasn't intentional. No one else has submitted any flyers or posters so I think we should just edit the one I made and get it ready asap for people to print and hang. If other people post a different one then I'm more than happy to take a look.

EDIT: If you look at the threads in the Questions and Feedback forum you'll see that I gave you credit for proposing this first. Thanks again!

I think we also need a new forum logo.

Re: A Call for Flyers to Advertise MHB

I put the current one up to have something. Chris says he is working on one and you have done some graphics in the past so I am waiting on somebody to do something. I can't do this one myself.

In this thread we had some good ideas that should be combined somehow into a new logo.

Re: A Call for Flyers to Advertise MHB

Flyers update. Here are two versions that I have uploaded to Google Documents so download as many times as you like!

1) MHB Flyer with QR code
2) MHB Flyer with strips to tear off

I like both versions and will be hanging them up soon and posting pictures to prove it. I added "Logic" to the list of subjects per request of Evgeney.Makarov. Didn't add the forum logo because we will most likely change it soon and it would use more ink.

What about Abstract Algebra? We do have a forum for it, after all...

I suppose I could add it but I think people will get the point even if we don't list every subject name. The bigger problem is that I don't think a single flyer is hanging on this globe :( . I intend to change that this week and I'll be taking pictures as proof. Non-internet exposure is going to help us a bunch, so Chris L T521 and I are looking into different ways to possibly advertise in real print. Anyway, I'm going to keep the flyers the way they are for now but if it keeps on bugging you in a while then I will make the addition.

Ok, I will add it when I can. I had someone else help me make them because I am bad at anything artistic in the slightest. In general though I don't want to keep adding subjects to the flyer. There should be enough to demonstrate a variety of topics and levels, and I think we have enough items to do that. Adding one more won't be an issue but if we keep adding then the flyer could look cluttered and the font size would have to shrink eventually. Let's all decide on a final list of subjects that we feel encompasses the message that we encourage all levels to join MHB and post.

if i ever get time ill try to make a flyer for you guys if youd like

i think a good way to make a flyer is if a few people send in little sketches or ideas. how you guys want the logo to look, stuff like that. the nicer the flyer looks the more people will be drawn to it.

I am glad you have rekindled the topic of MHB flyers. A well-designed and good looking flyer that would catch the eye of students would be a very nice asset for us to have.

So yes, if anyone has any ideas or input regarding a flyer, please feel free to post your suggestions. (Yes)

Are you asking why I used those initials or are you pondering the question of why students should choose MHB (Math Help Boards) over other math help sites?

I'm asking why should students or tutors use MHB. I wanna make two flyers. One thats formatted like the site (like a notebook or journal) and then another one that has a nice looking logo and its own design.

Or actually i think one flyer and one brochure.

It has been more than a year since he has been online here. But feel free to build on any ideas posted so far, or to begin from the ground up. :D

Well, what do you think are MHB's best qualities compared to similar sites? What makes us stand out from the rest?
