Title: Forum changes coming your way!
Post by: swallowthesun on May 27, 2013, 05:56 pm
After EGD blows over, I came up with an idea to hold weekly game contests. I need editors and reviewers to pm me if they are interested. I ALSO WANT PRIVATES AND SOLDIERS TO LOOK FOR NEW UPCOMING GAME MAKERS! I will make a thread in gamesharing for you guys to post them in.

This is going to require a lot of forum involvement to turn out right, but things are going to change. The goal of my idea is to make the forum more interactive. So I would appreciate involvement.

Meh.

Why "meh"?
And why haven't I gotten any PM's from people interested? Are people not interested, or are we that short on reviewers and editors?

Do you guys even want this?

The reviewers would be allowed to compete in the challenges right?

I like it. I'm not a reviewer, but if there's any way I could help I'd be happy to. I found a few good gamemakers that don't look like they're getting much attention, posted to the thread in GS.

Yes, but they can't review their own games.

Weekly game contests.

Not to point out the obvious, but don't we already have those?

Not like this. And the big idea is to get a lot of people involved to make a forum tradition in game making. Trust me, it turns out well, it should help change forum culture. I mean, don't you want more to do on here?

Yes. But next year's EGD I expect to be much bigger, and these will be more specific with smaller prizes.
