The Future of IGC's Website

More
2 months 6 hours ago #1 by Grey Jorildyn
Greetings all,

Grey here, your local Community Manager. Over the past several years we have seen a sharp decline in the use of the forums and overall views on our website. Gaming is a fast-paced environment and gamers like a fast-paced world. Information moves quicker than ever as time moves forward. Forums are slow and outdated, and often times aren't needed to facilitate effective communication in today's world. Websites obviously still have their use but the features we generally need may be found elsewhere and may be implemented more cleanly.

Last year Impact Gaming Community added Google Hangouts to our repertoire and it has seen major success. It has been instrumental in helping us keep connected with others in our gaming groups and allows us to even talk to everyone in the community as a whole. We share information quickly and can organize events on-the-fly. We can talk in small teams or large groups. The possibilities are endless. Plus, everyone has access to it on their mobile device.

It's implementation was simple. It was purely an addition to what we were already using, but in many ways it became all that we use (outside of Teamspeak, of course). It has become clear over the past several months that the site has little use outside the storage of static information, hosting of applications, and an email service. The rest of our site is becoming less viewed, utilized, and needed every day. That said, I have been looking for a way to keep promoting the content that we create within and for the community. Things like our raid videos, the podcast, our tabletop nights, etc. For the most part we use youtube but it doesn't feel "personal" enough. Social media, as devilish as it can be, is where the future has been heading for years now. It's time to took a larger step in that direction.

To that end I have created a new Google Community for IGC. You can find the link below to join, but it has also been sent out over the hangouts. It is a public community and it is what we will be using for the next 60 days to promote our content. Articles will continue to be posted here for those who wish to read them on our site, but all the work will be duplicated into the google community, so no matter where you are consuming the content, know that it is the same content, just with a different viewing experience, it just won't be back-linked here and will exist on its own as a relationship between google products (communities, youtube, etc).

As stated above this test flight will take place for about 60 days during which time I will be taking things like website views and +1s on google into account. The period may be extended further depending on initial results. I think this has the potential to be a great way to connect the community to our content, just the way Hangouts connected us to each other. Please join the google community and experience it with us in a new way. I'd really appreciate it and I think the more that are in, the better.

Thank you all for reading,

Grey Jorildyn
IGC Manager
