[casual_games] Notes from community chat

I don't think there would be enough visibility in a facebook group. I read most of the mails I receive, but I don't read all 'news' on facebook (it's just too much), and only rarely the posts on a group's page.
Also, they are still people who are not on facebook. I only subscribed when I started to develop a game with facebook integration.
The idea of using events seems interesting to me though, as most people also get an email when an event request is sent. Of course all people from the mailing list should be invited to events in order to be effective.
Also, many people are be on LinkedIn, a social network that may be more appropriate for this purpose...

> Hey all,
> Only a few folks joined the community chat on 10/18, but it was a really fruitful discussion. Some great ideas and discussion came out of it around possible initiatives and more efficient communication. The most notable are below:
> Great first effort, would love to see continued
> Greatest need is a new producer (community volunteer) to organize the podcasts **PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN DOING THIS**
> Original producer got swamped and needed to step away
> Would be great to partner with relevant blogs/news sites (e.g. Gamezebo, Inside Social Games) to publicize podcast
> Interesting idea for sure
> Dave will get past webinar results from IGDA head office
> Again, would need a producer/organizer/chief advocate
> Integration with local IGDA chapters
> Try to set up database of speakers with casual game expertise to be provided to local chapters looking for speakers
> Think about trying to set up local casual meetups in areas with critical mass of casual/social developers (e.g. San Francisco, Seattle)
> Possibly in concert with existing meetups (CGA, Peanut Labs)
> Migrate communications to Facebook group **I WOULD REALLY, REALLY LIKE FEEDBACK ON THIS PROPOSAL**
> Only a few dozen folks have signed up for the casual SIG on IGDA.org. (The mailing list has hundreds if not thousands of members).
> Move communication/discussion/event planning/notification to Facebook where people are hanging around already.
> Using events features could be a good way to plan future chats, webinars, etc.
> Build templates of best practices for casual games
> Publish a set of relatively static, well-understood best practices for casual game design and business.
> Could be controversial if laid out as "the truth" but could be a good set of articles/discussion starter/etc.
> Feedback welcome on all topics, and begged for on a couple.
> Please let the list know if you're interested in joining future community chat to help brainstorm up more program ideas, help get some of these moving, or just to engage the community in a topical chat.
