So as a site admin, when do you throw up "coming soon" if you wish to "pre-advertise" a site you have up and coming on resource site signatures?

Personally I think about 3-4 weeks is a good time, but I also understand if life events happen and it causes you to put off "coming soon" so "soon" is actually "later". It still at least creates a buzz, right? I also think there's less "pressure" I guess if you're not sure if you want to "officially" open the board AND go through the commitment of checking on the board daily and advertise the site everywhere.

Like I've had Arcane Lore in my sig for awhile on different resource sites (coming soon, minor modifications as I needed to change the image), but I just keep having life/school/work pop up with events that keeps resulting in me putting off, officially opening the board. I don't have many changes left, but I also kind of feel like I'm giving off the impression of "it's not actually coming soon" because it's taking so long for me to actually open it =( How do you handle those kinds of situations where you want to open a board but keep putting it off because life just keeps hitting you (even though you might have a "Coming soon" ad in your signature and/or you're talking to RP friends about it)

I'd agree that coming soon would be within a month -- unless you're advertising a specific open date. Like, advertising "coming soon, August 2018".

"Soon" is roughly a month to me.

Yeah. I agree with Pan. Probably no more than 6 weeks, though truth be told I have seen site buzzes that are like, 3 months off. That's just a tease imo. lol.
