It's a little bit circular to talk about how users move from one mafia-focused community to another mafia-focused community, since you're not revealing how people end up in mafia-focused communities in general.

Frequently a forum will be devoted to another topic. It will have an offtopic section. It takes 1 person in the whole site's userbase being familiar with forum mafia to get games going in that offtopic session. Players in those games come to suspect that sites devoted to mafia exists, and go to google to find a mafia devoted site. Sometimes the "1 person it takes" directly makes use of the mafiascum wiki and that forms a more direct step, in our particular case (we have a de facto monopoly on a good wiki).

Inviting IRL friends is a pretty small percent of acquisitions but it's another source of acquisitions.

A lot of people seem to find the site through our wiki. Our wiki gets a lot of use from other sites as well who reference us. I know I found MS through that mikeburnfire flash explanation of mafia.

Tbf, I've just stopped really enjoying mafia, and considering I live paycheck to paycheck, and have to spend 40hrs a week just to make rent, and even then, I'm still on welfare, I don't particularly have a lot of time.
I am V/LA on weekends. | Iconeum gets $5 less in Monopoly, when I run that, for this post and no other reason. Tris gets $750 extra from the time we played Root in the MS Discord.
Jake The Wolfie gets $1,500 less because they PM’d me and said they wish to start with that amount because they hate themself.

I have no idea how to do any of that. but maybe, just maybe, I'll think about it... Just, how can you have MS without at least one joke skin?

The faux pas was an official MS Discord. It's like inviting Amazon into your bookstore. Or like, uploading your family photo album to Facebook.

I do think Discord channel did negatively impact site chat usage.
