I'll be giving a talk about YOU

Recommended Posts

Hey folks ^^

I wanted to let you know that I will be giving a talk about you at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in March :D
To be more specific, the talk is about why forums are great place for community management of indie games.
I wasn't sure this is true when we started the forums a few months back, but you have proven that it definitely is!

Hey, that's great to hear!  Do you mean why message forums are good for community management, as opposed to a subreddit or other settings, or just a platform for communication in general?  Do you intend to also focus on some of the drawbacks, particularly in large communities? 

They can be very demanding on developer time and attention, particularly for small teams.  Before Aaron sold off Domain of Heroes, I was an admin and moderator over there, and we had 15-20 people on board of varying degrees of access to the system, but only four people on the development team, and only one developer; it was a little crazy over there, and the dev team had to schedule time away from actually developing to keep up with the community.

It will be recorded, but I don't know if it will be made publicly available, we'll see ^^
 

@Lurkily
Yeah, comparing to other hub options, such as reddit.
And up and downsites of forums.

I'm sure you have it under control.  But do let me know if you want me to take a look.  I don't know your history, of course, but it's possible I may have more experience with very contentious forums.  That, and I like to think that I have a half-decent way with words.
