Where do you want to get your MWLL news from?
« on: August 06, 2010, 10:15:05 PM »
There are other ways than bookmarking the MWLL website and repeatedly pressing the "Refresh" button to stay up to date about MWLL.
Twitter and Facebook is where we already are, but quite obviously there are other platforms like MySpace and Google Buzz that allow different levels and approaches of interacting with you, the community.
Please tell us if you'd like to see MWLL in other places as well or if you're even interested in getting news from anywhere but the MWLL website.
Up to 4 votes per user!

Also, please don't comment with "I'd rather see you develop faster than going all these fancy places" as these things have nothing to do with each other.

website, always check it before coming to the forum.  I "liked" it on facebook but it's often way behind on updates there.

That is something we're working on, something that got a bit messed up due to, well, changes. Don't let that keep you from anything.

I don't understand? Due to the site being based on Wordpress there is and always has been an RSS Feed?

Also, just to stress this: it's NOT an either-or - thing. It's just a matter of making things even more convenient.

A bit of necromancy, but oh well. It was something I had not noticed so its all well I suppose? =)

Website for sure.
RSS is a wonderful thing for news that arrive at irregular intervals.

I suppose twitter could work as well, but strictly from an information viewpoint I don't see the need. Twitter for news like this is basically RSS so....
For publicity on the other hand twitter could be a great idea. If people start retweeting the news they will spread to people who are not actively playing MWLL and with a bit of luck it will reach some mechhead who haven't heard of this amazing mod yet.

Thinking about it I guess the publicity thing holds true for all social networks.

/Merf - Voted considering only personal need for information, not taking PR into consideration.

Website of course.
As for my "Other" vote, ModDB and IRC. (Maybe even Desura?)

Is it really necromancy when it is the second most recent thread Merf?

If you have two corpses and you resurrect the most fresh corpse it is still Necromancy.
