The only way I was able to tolerate Blizzard and Riot's game forums full of trolls and negativity was because they had staff to interact with the forum members. It was fun to see employees take pictures of their desks or hold little forum games (games that didn't lead to in-game rewards, just stuff to goof off) and just be human.
The owner of the forum has to initiate some fun activities or else your forum is going to be filled with rageposting over the same few topics rehashed since the first day of the forums.
Thank you for the suggestion!
*looks at the desk*
Err... *starts cleaning frantically*
*waits patiently to see Minea's desk*
Yeah, my life is pretty empty right now.
Sweet thanks for taking the suggestion! It will be fun to see stuff like this.
Everyone think that the interview with Barack Obama was a really good idea after the SOTU?
Get a round table and do a live stream question period.
I'm afraid it will be a long while, folks. :)
But yes, it is our goal to have a fun and healthy community! Please don't hesitate to share other ideas.
I suggested a Eme Studio tour a while back before the Eme open house. Didnt happen.
how about give aways with small gaming merchandise like posters and figurines and such like sega does?
Preferably shaped like...the MINIPETS that I just KNOW Minea has hidden from us...
Guess they are just really busy these days. I remember back when things were real slow (no beta or news video/info every day) Scapes and Bromags would always post and interact with the community. There were some cool contests also.
I think we should start a Caption Contest, maybe EME will get behind it and reward some winners with beta keys.
