OKgamers.com - How you can help!
« on: October 08, 2006, 03:22:05 pm »
note.  This isn't for a specific event.  This is to help the site out - at becoming the place to PUT events / known for that / yea.  If you've got the interest to help out with a event, just post on that particular thread.  This, is helping out the entire cause - spreading the word / networking the state so we can all know when things are going down, and have more fun.

[As I've already mentioned here in this 'overview of what is coming' - http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php?topic=64.0] - we are looking to get people helping out.

What do we need, people wise, right now?

People that can drive flyers around, and post them at their schools and workplaces, or just hand them out to random strangers.

People that can write.  People that can take pictures and cover events.

People fired up about the cause of getting Oklahoma's act together.  People barely interested.

Gamers - of all kinds - to give opinions / help us weigh if idea's are good or not.

We need staff members.  You interested - then please read more about becoming a staff member!



X A - Edited for addition of Staff link.  Cleared out old Board invitations.

The first of probably 2 meetings - is scheduled for this Friday - 6pm till 8pm.  We'll probably go to some resturant / something like that.

Right now the topics range from how to work in editorials / game reviews / yea into the site, how to improve / work on some more site design, and role definition and general brainstorming.

If your interested in this 'getting our thoughts together' meeting, let me know.  It'll be in Tulsa, and if your planning on bringing constructive thoughts - the door is open.

The second meeting - will basically be putting these things and other items brought up in the conversation into action.  Might be just the same people, or more - either way - that's the plan.

December 16th, a Saturday, has been brought up as a good date / people will be in town / yea.

Thoughts?

Also, if you want to be on the board, please let us know. [If your interested in helping more with flyers, getting the word out, tournaments or so forth - just hold tight, we'll be getting that together soon.]

Geez man, we have a WHOLE TOURNAMENT forum for that, 2 for planning and actual tournaments in fact, and one to back up the old threads.

Are you not seeing the tournament information, in the Tournaments and Events forums, or linked RIGHT off the home page?  Is the site hard to navigate?  Or are you just not taking the time to look / read anything?

lol, it's not about feelings man - it's about usablity.  If the site isn't easy to use / clear - then we need to change somethin, ya know?


Feedback is important.  Watching how people use and don't use the site - important.  And - if we didn't care, the site would go to heck ;)  So - better to bug someone about usablity than let the site be useless and this all be for nothing.

Nice timing, I was actually just thinking about this!  Yea, I've got so far for a good 'board':

4 total "OKg staff members"
2 totally unconnected casual gamers
1 girl gamer lol

However, it'd be good to have some more neutral to OKg / new blood - so yea, you free the evenings of Monday the 18th, or Tuesday the 19th of December / this month? That's seemingly coming out to be one of the good nights for everyone mentioned.  Let me know!

Intersted - in the board meeting / board position, or general helping out or?

Trust me - we are going to need all the help we can get / actual 'staffing' and such.  We need people in different cities that help get the word out, so on so forth.  So - if it's not board related and just general help, keep an eye out, after the board meeting - we'll be posting about staffing positions / officially opening up the site to people that are interested in really helping.

If your interested in the board, something that would require attendance / attention about once or twice a year, then would you be free around Tuesday, the 19th?  That seems to be the date we'll be going with, in the evening, in Tulsa.  If your around / available - let me know, and I'll get you the info :)
