Your help would be much appreciated. Friend me on Steam (danthat) and I'll make you a special event-adder on the Group.

Sadly I've moved to the middle of the countryside, leaving me with too shit an internet connection to play my own damned game ;D

Am I one of these people yet?

Kouen and Scooter, let me/EvilBrett know how/if you want us to start organising events!

Well - the peace and quiet must be nice? :)

Perhaps an online petition is in order to get better internet in your area (he says like online petitions actually mean something lol)


Eeeeeeeeevents! Lets get the Gun Monkey community thriving!
I have ideas...I do, I do! Want to hear?

Yes, ideas are welcome! All we've really been doing so far is saying "ok play at this time."

Brett- I've made you a mod of the group. You can now create events and stuff, I think,. Please friend Scooter and Kouen and TimeGentleman and coordinate with them before doing things.

Ben, you're a mod already Should be able to set up events?

You got it! Added.
Happy to meet you all and to have the chance to help out.

My first idea - although pretty simple and likely thought of (possibly even implemented) - is giveaways. Tried and true :)
Not necessarily Gun Monkeys itself, but I very often get spare keys for games though the various bundles & specials and would be happy to promote Size Five Games through the descriptions that can be added. It's all about exposure! lol
Then there are the 'Massive Giveaways' through the likes of GalaGiveaways that appear on the top of every page (seems you need 25+ copies of the game to qualify for 'massive'). I think the same with SteamGifts. Thoughts?

Second - lets pick a weekend soon, make up some stupid random idea for an event ('Begging/Middle of October Christmas Easter Event-o-rama' for example...sounds silly to me haha) and put it out there. More thoughts?

Ideas, ideas, ideas - feel free to ponder!

Ah yes, I just looked at my admin tab and it's right there. I am on standby if needed. Scooter/Kouen, are you only doing bi-weekly now?

By Bi-weekly I was an idiot and meant twice a week.

I like the idea of giveaways, definitely. It's just coming up with the prizes that's the problem. I have extra keys from Humble Bundles and stuff, so I could donate some of those if need be.

The only issue I foresee with giveaways is, how do we determine who gets a prize? Random drawing? As long as we see them in a server, they're eligible? Or are you thinking an actual competition, like a tournament?

So... would we want to do this weekend? I think we should at least schedule another play event, if not a giveaway.

Works for me. Who wants to make the event?

Do we want to post an announcement about possible giveaways and ask for feedback on possible prizes?
