That’s been kind of a thought of mine for a while now. If it can’t be a guild leader then maybe a single welcome committee volunteer per guild?


#22

I definitely 100 percent second a personal welcome DM. Lets people know that the forum is still active and gives a direct avenue to connect and ask questions without feeling like you’re bothering someone you don’t know.


#23

Maybe even tweak it at some point and after, let’s say, general guidelines, add something guild-specific? And if you somehow haven’t gone through the guide, a link to it? I know it’s a bit of a hassle as an idea but I still believe there’s more to be told about the guilds themselves than what’s in the introduction. To make it not only personal but also inviting to explore on different levels?


#24

This has all been really constructive and productive, everyone. Definitely keep them coming if you think of stuff but I just wanted to say you’ve been a tremendous help so far!! :cjheart:

I have kind of an odd suggestion. One of the big things that drew me to TMP was the multi-media aspect. Would it be possible to integrate that into some kind of welcome ‘hub’ page? I feel like the MAGIQ guide was a wonderful point of induction during TMP, but it might be good to have some additional content to explain the post-TMP world and all the things that went down.

I don’t know if something like that would be possible, but I thought I would bring it up!

Like a shuffling tarot deck where each of the major arcana introduces you to an aspect of AGP and TMP and the forum :heart_eyes:

Late to the conversation, but I am absolutely on board with the guild leaders reaching out. I remember when I first joined I had the likes of Bells, Rev, and Robert kind of guiding me into the fray. Having those familiar faces as I learned the ropes was really helpful, and is part of what makes Basecamp feel like home!


#28

I definitely agree with the personal message from guild leaders etc.
For me @Skylad reached out and that helped me feel really welcome, and feel like I could really become a part of this community, so that was super helpful


#29

Smells like the Amber deck from Zelazny’s series. I’m all for that!

Just doing what I do @annabloem :hugs::hugs: it’s good practice for when the boards of Weatherwatchers finish their walkabouts and join up
