Other stuff

Best draws...

  1. EaW clan - http://www.empireatwar.net/community/clans/index.htm, http://eaw.heavengames.com/clans/

Other draws...

  1. SWG club - best advertised in-game; a few places possible to advertise- http://www.gamerdna.com/groups/recruitment/Star-Wars-Galaxies/Starsider/ http://www.swgalaxies.net/guilds/index.php3?server=Starsider%20(US%20East) - http://www.dmoz.org/Games/Video_Games/Action/Space_Combat/Star_Wars_Games/Star_Wars_Galaxies/Player_Associations/Starsider/ - but these seem old and unused. Guild is self-sufficient in-game.
  2. RS ITOD immersive experience - but almost no one would go out looking for this; it's only after joining one realizes its power
  3. Console/pc gaming? What can we do? The only real way to make this viable is to get a significant number of people playing with the (RS) tag and thus get our name out. We'll need some kind of lure for them - SWG uses in-game rewards. We don't have financial resources to offer rewards that would require money; our only immediate offer can be other members' skills. And we don't yet have that underlying structure.
  4. Star Wars club type stuff - competitions, merits, courses, etc. - but these are things to keep people, not draw them.

(ABG does not want advertising.)

In conclusion:

The nature of the RS is such that we do not focus on anything for which people go out and look, generally, but rather an out-of-game experience centered on community and in-character roleplaying. Therefore, we need to focus on "hooking" people (which Beginner's Path does pretty well) and providing them with reasons to stay beyond whatever reason that brought them here.

Rough sketch of proposed trajectory of new members:

  1. (CDT-2LT) Joins - is put on Beginner's Path - learns to navigate
  2. (2LT-MAJ) First activity possibilities - earning points for courses, missions, competitions, communication is more than good enough
  3. (CPT-CMDR) Responsibility asked - upper academy courses, assist in an executive office, squadron or wing CS, forums discussion input
  4. (CMDR-COL) Fairly accustomed to responsibility - squadron/wing CS, well versed in history/activities of at least one unit, in charge of some aspect of executive work (e.g. tacops, one game of missions database, one area of competitions)
  5. (COL-GEN) High responsibility - instrumental to the operation of a unit, executive office task, or equivalent, and has demonstrated at least good leadership and responsibility.
  6. (GEN-FA) Club service - work has positively affected multiple units or areas of the RS over a period of time.

Mission Database runs

Per mission:

  1. Fly based on information given (in-game briefing) -- use second run if first one fails due to pilot error
  2. Write review & rate based on first run and its results
  3. Pick apart mission and study how to get a very high score
  4. Fly a few more times until near-target score is achieved
  5. Write final review & rating, incorporating all knowledge of mission

Per tour:

  1. Attempt to connect missions to each other -- see if they flow logically -- write notes for later comprehensive review
  2. Review the...reviews, and compile them into an overall tour rating
