Boosting activity and comradery
« on: November 01, 2016, 06:37:11 PM »
Guys, we should really try to boost our activity as well as spend more time chatting about stuff. I proposed to ahowl that we make a chatroom on discord or wherever and gather once a week to discuss agendas as well as other things both mod-wise and offtopic-wise. It would be great to hang out and discuss stuff real time. What do you guys think, would you like that?
Also, if anyone has any other ideas, please, feel free to share :)

I think regular meetings for these sorts of projects can be good. Personally I tend to struggle if things are on anywhere other than twitter, FB, or Exilian, but that's just because I'm really stretched between different projects all the time. Give me a shout if there's anything I can help with at the Exilian end anyhow. :)

Well, I could write up a summary of every meeting and post it here, so everyone can follow up on everything and remind themselves of things discussed if needed :D
And thanks!

Also, xeofox, I'm glad you support this idea, I really think this would boost things up :)

We already have Slack, and slack is cool because it's hooked up to our GIT. That means every time we have a push, you get notified. I like it a lot because I have it on my phone too. So I can be out of town or just afk, and be able to know what exactly is going on.

Also, we do need someone who is willing to give weekly news to the masses on these sites:

-TWC
-totalwar.org
-totalwar.com
-Facebook
-reddit
-Twitter
-moddb
-YouTube
-AncientEmpiresElysium
-RomanArmyTalk
-SocietyofAncients
-Russian Forums
-Chinese forums
-Anything else I have not listed
I think if we get 2-3 people who are willing to do this then we will be getting more traffic.
God, Family, Baseball, Friends, Rome Total War, and Exilian. What more could I possibly need?

is there a windows mobile version of the Slack app?
I've got Exilian and TWC covered, I would just need someone to forward my updates to other media sites. Maybe xeofox can help with VK, since my Russian isn't great at all? :D
