Integration of community events into the news feature

Post by JohnBWatson » Sun May 22, 2016 12:31 pm

In a discussion on skype, a few of us were talking about MMJ and getting more people into the community. I thought it was cool how George had set up the game to show the notes when a new extension was released, and I thought it might be good to make use of this feature to notify players about community events. IRC day, Streams, and MMJ would all be excellent candidates for this. What does everyone think?

Sound interesting. I think half people that play Transcendence isn't sign up to become a member, and they just stop by and see what topic that interest them. If your idea was applied to community, I think it will increase a chance to getting new member and/or raise Transcendence popularity.

Seconded. We need more people to breathe life into the community.
