I have spent time in grps and have had some ppl interested but when there is no one on to invite them in the kin, not much can be done. Alot of people dont want to go to a web site, sign up and wait to get in.
I was a guild leader from SWG, I and Avion had one of the largest on our server and we did it without a site. I think we need to invite and then let them make their way to the forums.
We do need more officers to do invites,
My 2 cents.

At this point I would like to request that the leadership roll for the SSX LOTRO Kin be transferred to someone like Eli, Al or Mari. We could vote on it if enough feel it is necessary. I just simply have too much bad stuff going on in my life to be reliably available in-game as a Kin Leader. I hope my status will change in the future but as with anything in life, who the heck knows. If I need to be kept as Assistant Leader (or is it Assistant TO the Leader?) I have no problem with that.
As far as old/inactive members having a say in what goes on in SSX LOTRO it is my opinion that all active and former members should have their thoughts and opinions considered when a decision is to be made. Since this is an extended friend network of people it would be wise to keep former members in the flow of our activities if not just for the chance we could lure the hapless souls back! I mean, we should value their opinion and learn from their past experiences..
Recruiting is one of those sticky wickets in a MMORPG. On the one hand you have the need to grow the Kin and on the other you have the difficulty of "screening" potential new recruits. One of the most common practices I have seen employed by various kins/guilds is to invite new members on a trial basis (usually about 2 weeks), make sure a few officers have a chance to fellow with them, make sure they post at least a short description of what they like about the game and any goals they may have on the forums (like a "getting to know me" thread, but nothing too personal) and then after a few weeks some officers and hopefully the leader get together and vote the recruit to active status. It is a bit of a drawn-out process and we are not a hard-core raiding/PVP Kin that only invites the best players but in this day and age you just never know what to expect in a virtually anonymous society. I mean heck, Bink was let in for crying out loud! Although I suspect kick-backs and behind the scenes shenanigans lead to his approval
As a final note, I offer the following:
Coney Pie is MURDER!!!!
Tasty, tasty murder..
