the OG community needs you!

Post by lvjtn » 2019-09-27 18:57, Friday

dear comrades!

the og team seeks for one or two volunteers helping us

1. moving to the new site is an opportunity to select which essential readings, manuals, faq entries or any other useful documentation should be kept and copied here. while there are very useful pg2 stuffs what are useful nowadays too, unfortunately, some of these docs are already obsolete. this job will be huge and none of the active og team members have enough free times to do it, and also none of us feel 100% commitment to select the most useful readings and keep uptodate the documentation. remember: none of us are native english speakers

so here you are the first "job advertisement":

1. we are looking for a documentation specialist

- if you speak english good enough (e.g. you can read and understand this post :) ),
- if you are familiar with the basic concepts and features of the game,
- if you have already read at least one user guide, tutorial, manual, handbook, etc.
- and if you are eager to help the community,

then it's time to join us and become the documentation specialist of the og team. you shouldn't know everything about the game. hell yeah, nobody does, at least without checking older notes or testing the situation, not even Luis, the ultimate master and creator of this game. we can give you any assistance you need to maintain the documentation, we explain what you don't know. you "just" need to collect the useful knowelegde what we can post as shorter faq entries or as longer howtos, etc.

2. recently all og team members have more than enough project to work with, and we haven't enough time to manage our presence in the social media (mostly in facebook so far). hovewer, several players prefer these channels to keep in contact with us or to know more about this awesome game.

so here you are the second "job advertisement":

2. we are looking for a social media (pr) specialist

- if you speak english good enough (e.g. you can read and understand this post :) ),
- if you are familiar with the currently popular social media applications,
- and if you are eager to help the community,

then it's time to join us and become social media (pr) specialist of the og team. what we expect is posting regularly about the new releases, new campaigns, important events or issues. you don't have to answer any questions of the users, except asking them to register here, because this place is the "official home" of the game. your job is creating a more or less continuous presence in the social media to keep alive our players' attention

if you are interested any of these "positions", please send a pm / mail to Luis or just post here a few words

I think that I might be qualified for the first position. All right, modesty is for fools like Goethe used to say. I am.

I have been a member of the community since 2003, and I was present when the guides and strategies were built in old PG2, People's General and Pacific General. I was around when OpenPG2 was born and the ideas that sorrunded it. I might not have kept it up to date with all of the new features of OpenGeneral, but those are usually intuitive enough and the threads on JP's are useful.

As a bonus, I tried as much as possible to stay away from inflammatory threads, although at times that was impossible, as some players made themselves too noxious. Those threads, I would definitely keep as far away as possible.

I might be qualified for the second position as well, but my Facebook presence is abysmal. I don't think I logged in there in the past few months.

excellent! :banana

you really have the skills, Dragoş! :)

:howdy :yes :clap

in the near future, i start to collect the links of the possible pg2, og related things, what can be imported either as a post here or a faq entry on our website. whatever you can save / update / check / confirm would be nice :)

I was thinking about something like this for quite some time now. There should be at least one post every week. There can be a great variaty of posts. It can be something like that:

"Today is 29 September. Do you know that 101 years ago the Word War I Battle of St Quentin Canal started back in 1918? By the way, have you ever played the Weltkrieg campaign for Kaiser Efile?"

I think it is interesting to connect historic events, modern movies, arts and stuff like that with the game and that all of these topics can be a good source of inspiration for posts about Open General. But i don't use any of Instagram and co. and my English is quite simple, so i really hope that eventually somebody will show up who has interest and fun to take over the job as social media specialist :ihope

yep, the idea is not new, we already discussed it 1.5 year before in the thread about the new website, this new forum only reminded us we hadn't found anybody for this task :)

i also can imagine lots of things like opening a youtube channel where any opengen players can upload his/her videos about playing the game, or at least posting screenshots about playing the game to insta/fb/whatever

but i think the og team shouldn't tell exactly what to do, the dude who will take this post will decide about what s/he prefers. of course, the community can suggest things, as always, but og team members always have the freedom to choose the way as they want to contribute :) remember, we are here because we enjoy this wonderful game and the community behind it ;)

I once set/wrote up a wiki for a different game - writing some informational postings without all the formatting should be no problem in comparison. I could join the typing team after fixing my PC :nods
