  Re: DIGRA


  That's good news -- I'd approached them about a year or so ago about SIGs. It would be nice to have a triple sponsored SIG with the understanding that we all work as one unit so that we don't end up with a mass communications breakdown!!! I know that IGDA works with DIGRA quite closely so I don't see expanding being a problem. I'll contact them about it so we can get this on the way!

  Who still has to arrange Brighton too but is definitely going...I'm just not sure whether I'll be swimming there or not.


    Hi,

    No problem, was just one minute of work. I submitted the project to several ludology websites today so hopefully they'll pick it up. I already received a reply from www.game-research.com who are interested in an article about the project and the subject. I also recently learned that the DIGRA (www.digra.org) is in the process of setting up SIG's as well (http://www.digra.org/sigs/), so maybe it would be a good plan to expand the GA-SIG and the G-A.com project (btw: www.gameaccessibility.com also works) by including/setting up a DIGRA GA-SIG as well? Any thoughts on that... ?

    Greets,

    Richard (who unfortunately still has to arrange Brighton)

      Hey everyone,


      I just wanted to point everyone who was active in SIG projects and such to the forums on game-accessibility.com where we've been posting plans and such for things like Develop Brighton and more:


      http://www.accessibility.nl/games/forum/index.php


      Go ahead and sign up when you get the chance and give your feedback on SIG projects. Each week (or I'll try to do this each week) I'll provide a summary on this list for those who want to know what's going on but can't be as active in SIG activities as they would like. We'll still have online meetings -- we're just experimenting with this "extra" method of keeping in touch!


      Thomas, Giannis, Dimitrious -- take a look at Develop Brighton -- if you can make it, we'd love to have you with us -- post on the forum if you'll be able to come with us! And, of course, anyone else too! :)


      And thanks again to Richard and Sander for making this move to forum communication easy! And thanks to Reid who thought it up in the first place. :) We're at a very exciting place right now where the SIG is expanding to include solid partnerships. As Richard has said, we're only going to get the results we want (accessible games!) if we work together and share our resources.


      Michelle
      Chairperson, IGDA Game Accessibility SIG
