Community Event: NWR Forum February 2022
« on: February 08, 2022, 11:27:10 AM »
There's been some chatter again recently about the trickle of new posts on the forums. While many posters still like the community and members here, they've found it hard to stay engaged because why try to start a conversation if it will take days for someone to respond? It's a fair point. I know I've been feeling the same malaise. Yet, I know there's still some desire for discussion on these forums because you will see more posting when we've had a Community Event like Backlaugust or some big news like the Microsoft purchase of Activision. It got me thinking that maybe another Community Event could help spark things for a few weeks here.

The idea is simple. For the month of February, the goal for participants is to make 3 posts on the forum per day. (Mafia Game and Safe Words Game related posts don't count. :'( ) Posts can be as big or small as you want. Even if the post is just a response that "I enjoyed playing (insert game title)" to someone else's comment. That counts. That's a valid post. It doesn't have to be a Khushrenada Special (aka ten paragraph wall of text). Because even a simple post like that may be the spark for someone else to decide to post something and carry on a discussion or trigger some point they'd like to share.

Because this idea is only happening a week into February, it will probably be even easier to accomplish since there's only three weeks left now. For a user that means 63 posts for the month at this point. Let's say 10 people participate. That would be 630 posts made on the forums. Chances are that new posting will trigger some other comments from users not involved in the event. Who knows how much activity we could spark for a few weeks? Heck, to ease into this, there is even going to be Nintendo Direct tomorrow. That should help give people something to post about for awhile.

Was there a topic you've had on your mind for awhile but just never got around to creating? Here's your chance. Was there a topic you've always meant to respond to but never got around to it? Here's the chance to do so. Got a lame joke for the Funhouse you thought was too stupid? Post it now.  ;D

Maybe there's a game you finally got around to playing and then checked the review for it on NWR and would like to respond but it's been months or years since it was put up. Go ahead and make a post for it. I know there's been an "unwritten rule" about bumping Talkback threads. For the next three weeks, the restriction will be lifted for a couple reasons. First, I'm curious if it will really be an issue or not.  ;D Second, I've seen staff comment on the Discord one time about being happy a Talkback thread was getting some comments. Let's face it. If you were writing reviews, I'm sure you'd like to eventually see some feedback or comments on your work. So, there's a chance commenting on a review or some other feature could make that author glad to see someone cared about their effort. And I think that is worth allowing some bumping in Talkback.

To make this a bit less daunting to read, I’ll divvy it up with this second post.

I thought by doing this as a Community Event with other users taking the plunge to commit to make 3 posts a day that we can cheer each other on and support the other users doing this. (Which would mean making a post. Yes!) With the Winter Olympics, I’ll even take from that and add it into this event. If there are three weeks and a user would have to make 21 posts per week then that means a participant in this event can be a Bronze Medal Forum User at 21 posts for the month, a Silver Medal Forum User at 42 posts for the month and a Gold Medal Forum User at 63 posts for the month. Just post in here as you reach a level.

What if a user posts more than 3 posts in a day? Great! You’re getting ahead of the game and those can all count to your grand total. What if a user doesn’t post anything for a couple days? No problem. There’s no disqualifications and maybe they can make up those days later on and still reach the 63 post goal. Can a user post more than 3 a day or a total of 63 posts? Of course. Don’t hold back from posting if you’ve got more you want to discuss. This isn’t a limit but just a simple minimum. Heck, if you think you can suddenly post 400 messages over the next three weeks then go for first place in this event. Just don’t be spamming. What if I just post 10 messages this month? You’re still a winner. Because no matter how much is posted, all users win by seeing an uptick in posting for the month of February.

Will this event just be a small blip or possible last gasp of a forum that’s drying up? Perhaps. But I’d say it is still better than no blip at all. And who knows? Maybe it will turn out to be easy enough that people find three posts a day isn’t that hard to do and can easily make it part of their internet loop for some time after the event.

Who’s in?

Also, if you want an easy way to keep track of how you are doing, just look at your forum profile and then the stats tab to see your current post count total. You could post it here or send yourself a pm with the number. That way, if you are wondering how many posts you've made in February you can just check your stat page again and compare the new total to your old total.

Wahoo lets rock!!

Oh did I win?


But seriously I had to get that triple post out of the way. 

Can it be about anything?    If so I may need to bump a few of my old topics that did get some activity back in the day.

I mean, this will make post #5 for me already so ain't nothing been "won" or decided yet. Absolutely anything. As I tried to make clear in the first two posts, anything posted whether a new topic, a small reply or a joke can count. The only thing that shouldn't be counted are Mafia or Safe Word game related posts as those are a timed and specific event and their purpose isn't really about fostering discussion outside of that game being played.

My "oh did I win?"  was a Princess Peach quote but I just wanted to have some fun with your post.

Lol I had a look at my old topics and most of them were me hosting Mafia games or creating a game thread.  Only few I made were about me and what I was up to.  Two different topics about doom and gloom and another about the good happening in the world.   The other was somewhat self serving with the LGBTQIA topic that nobody but me talked in for the most part.


Maybe I can make a more general chill topic about what everyone is doing these days and just a nice place to converse without much direction with the topic.  Just check in each day and  give each other life advice.  Would anyone be okay with a topic like that?

Just do it. I create topics all the time on stuff. Sometimes they garner interest for a brief period and die, sometimes they go nowhere at all and a very select few end up sticking around for quite some time. I don't know how a thread will end up but I create them anyways to see what happens. That's how you get into the Top Ten of most threads created on this forum.  8)

Wow. I've already hit the 21 post mark and this is just the second day. I guess I'm posting too much.  :-[  It's just that easy to dominate the forums.

I added in the Bronze, Silver and Gold spots to the post with the sign-up list and I guess that makes me the first to achieve the Bronze level for posting this month. Guess I'll take a break and do some other stuff now.  8)  ;)

If you want in then you are in. The whole thing was a sudden spur of the moment post with no notice so not a problem if you only saw it now. Still plenty of time to reach a Silver Medal Forum user if you do three a day now. Probably still time to reach Gold if a person went 4 posts a day. Moreover that's just an average. You can post more or less on days depending on how you want to reach the 63 post goal.

And, as I've said, even if someone isn't signed up but they are able to post a bit more than normal then they're doing their part to contribute to Forum February since that may help provide inspiration for those trying to reach that Gold Medal Post Count number.

This would be a very easy way to boost your posts daily by just talking about what one is up to.

Whoo-eee! It sure is great checking in here the past few days and just constantly seeing new posts all over the forums. Good job, y'all! Already over 100 new posts this week and it hasn't even been a full week since this event started. Hope you're also enjoying the experience so far as well.
