I have a lot of "lurkers" on the site, because the public information is quite useful. I want to create more of a value hook so they are likely to actually signup. I would like there to be some text in the signup box area that will only show up to members who are not signed in (I will have some key benefits of signing up).
I think I know how I can do it using the language editor (assuming I would go in after the "you can also sign in with" and add some content there... so I'd like suggestions there, but I would also like folks to tell me if they have done anything cool along these lines.
On one of our networks we recently moved to a private network (except the main page) and noticed a huge rise in sign ups. Obviously, you have to weigh this against having content "findable" online.
There's a video on this page where the creators of ThisIs50 talk about the change, and difference, between private and public networks.
Here's what I did for that box, just with manipulating the text editor. I put it above the standard sign up link though instead of after 'you can also sign up with'. (@ http://studymorechinese.com/ )
I think you already understand this but any changes you make in that default box are conditional by default - any logged in members have that area replaced with inbox, profile etc etc.
To edit above the sign up link, search for this in text editor: Welcome to<br />%s
To edit the sign up link (don't use any html code there though as it edits the next page & top page link) search text editor for: Sign Up
I also want to experiment with a photo & 'Get started guide' in that area, now that I think about it. But I haven't yet.
Good luck & any questions, let me know.

the big button is nice i got that from there too but the added text in the language editor encourages ppl to join if they know they can get questions answered fast or if u give em added reason to join the button draws more attention yea but doesnt give a rason to join
