Game developers! I'm Abby, a member of the fabled CHAOS team at Stack Exchange. You might have seen me around if you hang out on Ask Different ever - I'm in charge of the CHAOS mayhem on that site. Things are going well over there so far, so it's time for me to add another site to my portfolio. I picked Game Development, and here I am!
I'm going to start with a disclaimer - I know little to nothing about the technical aspects of game development. I am a gamer, though, and I'm interested in all the processes and steps that have to take place between waking up one morning with a great idea for a game and having people stay up all night trying to beat your brainchild. (Awkward wording, but you get the picture.)
I'll be working on general promotion ideas as well as attempting to personally recruit new kickass users. The first step is for me to embark on a title-editing-and-cleanup campaign. I'll be checking in on the homepage in the mornings and the evenings and making sure the titles are nice English sentences with correct punctuation, so noobs who show up here aren't too threatened.
<stage whisper>you guys can help with this if you want!
</stage whisper> I apologize in advance if this clogs up the moderator queue. If it gets annoying, please let me know, and I'll get myself some temporary mod privileges for while I'm doing the editing.
Okay. I've talked long enough. Time to make this post into a question:
What promotion ideas do you have? What sorts of things would you like to see us do?
