So Many Competitions

Posted by Glen on May 20, 2013, 1:36 p.m.

It would be nice to have a competition section on the website. We have room for it on our navigation bar and instead of searching through recent activity feeds it would be nice to have an organized section for them. I feel that I forget or never see half of these competitions and events because they get buried under all of the personal blogs. They only pop up when people are posting in them.

Pinning every competition to the front page doesn't seem like a logical fix either. It takes up room for new/fresh content. It would also be a nice way for new visitors and possible sponsors for said competitions/events to take a look at what's going on in a more presentable way.

We have game competitions, music competitions, art competitions, and god knows what else our creative minds will create. I feel like it's becoming a big part of 64D and deserves to have more organization.

Indeed.

Having an open section would also influence better decisions regarding joining competitions and perhaps even be a good hook for new users.

(Though, said users would only show up for the Competitions. But beggars can't be choosers, etc)

I'm okay with this. Some people, just want to make games. They don't necessarily have to be a big influence in the community and blog on the site. I liked how active the community became with the first 64D RPG competition. It brought so many new people to the site and blogs naturally come with the game entries.
