As you know, I'm interested in boosting Cynosure activity in the region. These are my current cultural ideas for doing so. If you could vote which ones you'd be interested in participating in above (feel free to vote for more than one!), and discuss these options below. Do post if you have any other ideas which could be added to the vote.
Thank you for participating in our community!
- Clubs: areas in the forum where groups of similarly interested people can gather and discuss. Each club would get their own forum, and have a leader who can dictate the clubs hierarchy and moderate that forum.
- Board Games: online board games we can play together. These would be async games (so you'd get an email when it's your turn).
- Quests: have challenges set on a monthly or weekly basis that have you producing something to compete against others. This would be as simple as designing a super hero and as big as a month long programming quest. The winner gets fame and fortune.
- Monthly Contests: favourite video game, TV show, movie, book, etc of the month. Citizens nominate and then vote, with the winner being proclaimed as Cynosures favourite of the month.
- Forum Games: these are games that run a little longer (like Firefly game but set on the forums) and include things like Werewolf/Mafia, a spy hunting game and character combat.
- Arcade: mini flash games integrated into the forums. We had this a while back. These would be rather simple but you'd be able to get high scores on them and compete against other people.
- Minecraft: a shared server for us all to enjoy and work together towards.
