Need Some Advice
« on: August 13, 2017, 06:12:14 AM »
I hope this is the best place to ask this in, but I dunno if folks know but I and another run a C:DDA Facebook group.
https://www.facebook.com/CataclysmDDA/?hc_ref=ARTpqp0Pe-cd76-ZqT_RAzuYr1DUC400-rek-X00JIwu6x88BZanf3zUpOKgG7UviWk&fref=nf

It used to be active, but now with no stable to make huge update posts it has been.. quite dead.
The thing is though.. I am not sure what to do to get it active again.
If there is ever a post there is attention and conversation, but the problem is I have no idea what to post.

Maybe I should consider with the other if it might be a good idea to get a third person on board that would be more active and have things to post...

Anyways, as the title says I could use advice for what to post and what to do to keep the place active.

The following things come to my mind:

- Bigger updates from experimental builds ; For example, the Nutrition Update or the Vehicle update would have been worthy of a post.
- (good) new videos about CDDA / Let's plays of it.
- Noteworthy new stories/art about CDDA
- Big or important bugfixes
- News about the next stable version (whenever THAT comes out)
- Infos about other roguelikes people might enjoy
- Tips & Tricks for newer players (or even a beginners guide)
- News about planned features
- Funny screenshots of stuff happening in cdda


Of course, depending on how you want to run the Group, some of those options might not be a good idea. Depending on the people in the group, too many updates might also give them a reason to leave the group.
Still, a lot of people who are playing CDDA are actually not active in the forum, so you could provide an alternative source of information with your group to those people - if you're able to get them to join that is.

I'm part of that group and I'd love to see wacky screenshots posted
