    Anyone have any tips or tricks for using the notice system to engage members to participate in the community more, and convert the guests in to members?

    It does not matter imo, what it says on the notice system messages, if the site does not have interesting content. Content is the most important thing to achive what you are asking.

    Not using the notice system from xenForo, but I implement ideas such as these to promote discussion threads at my forum so people can find them to post in :


    I'm pretty sure a lot of people are familiar with the Jake from State Farm commercial :

    It's changed weekly or monthly depending on how many ideas I have with new links to different discussions that my members would be interested in talking about.

    Just have a very large annoying floating notice, that says: "if you join up you will no longer get this very large annoying floating notice" :)

    If you have adsense it's a good idea to let people know the ads won't show to members (if that is the case)

    How did you make it large?

    I didn't actually do this, it was more tongue in cheek. But you could change the dimensions, or add padding, borders via CSS

    By the way, do such fixed floating notices really not interfere with search engines (google, yahoo, bing etc)?

    Setting Visibility (Notice's setting) to "Hide Below Narrow Width (480px)" will make any difference?

    I'm sure Google may prefer that, but then it won't be doing it's job of being a notice.

    That's ok it's not working on mobile devices.

    How can I force this notice not to appear on registration page? I failed to find notice's setting that is responsible for single pages

    You can talk about something interesting in the guest notice. It could be a good article, an interesting resource you offer, or a freebie.
