The powers-that-be are looking for fun community events that can drive site promotion. I suggest we host a gaming convention.
In the spirit of "agile development" from the software world, we can start with the smallest possible thing that can be run, and grow organically according to what people need and want to see at the con.
If we put something together that's even remotely in my area (US east coast) I am willing to GM a couple of Shadowrun games.
To get the ball rolling, we need the following:
- A location
- A list of people who are going to show up
- An idea of what they're interested in doing
(Really, any community get-together can be boiled down to these items. I'm suggesting we start with a weekend of RPG gaming.)
Think about it, we do this kind of thing all the time, in our own individual groups. We just need to get organized. =)
