Advertising Committee

Started by Halaster, May 25, 2022, 08:06:40 PM

We are announcing another go at Advertising for the game.  There will be two parts to this.

The first part is we'd like to create an Advertising committee of volunteers - both players and staff - who will create advertising material.  This can include introductions, blurbs, paragraphs, images, and whatnot.  You can volunteer for this by submitting a request and put "Advertising Committee" in the subject.  We ask that you have some idea of what you're doing, though we're not expecting professional marketing people (though wouldn't that be nice).  We'll probably select in the neighborhood of 5-10 people for this, who will be given some amount of time to come up with the material - probably a month.

Part two will come once that's done and will involve anyone who wants to join in.  The advertising material will be made available to everyone in the community to use wherever they choose, with some very important caveats:

1.  Any costs associated with advertising will be your responsibility.  The game doesn't have money, so there's no such thing as funds for this, unfortunately.  We don't even want to know how much you spend.
2.  There will be no favors, benefits, specapps, karma, special treatment, or the like for people who participate.  You'll be doing this on a purely volunteer basis and your reward will hopefully be seeing more people in the game.
3.  You will be representing the game when you advertise, so we ask that you follow the rules of wherever you display the material, and be respectful of whatever communities you join to display the material.
4.  If a competing game/MUD is not welcoming of us advertising there, don't do it.  Other games such as Harshlands, Discworld, etc. are our friends in the mudding community.

A few more days left on this before I close it out.  Note if you are part of the old Publicity forum, don't assume you'll automatically be included in the new Advertising Committee, I'm going to reset the permissions on that.  So if you want to join in, please be sure and send in a request.

This is closed now.

We're going to try our hand at this again.  If you're interested in being a part of this, you can volunteer by submitting a request type Role Application and put "Advertising Committee" in the subject.
