Half-Life Creations Community Discussion- Date TBA
« on: November 10, 2008, 09:36:22 AM »
Greetings,

We at Half-Life Creations have been around for almost two years, providing hosting services and verbal abuse. This December we will be holding a Skype Conference Call to discuss the future of HLC and possible improvements and suggestions. This will be by request and invite only. That means that some top community members will be getting a PM saying they are invited to join us to talk about the Website. If you believe you have a great suggestion or something you want to tell us, you can request a position in the chat discussion. There will be 5 spots available for those requesting a position. If you do not want to talk live, you can always leave your points in this thread and we will bring them up on your behalf.

That being said, you need the following to participate in the discussion:

1. Internet
2. Skype
3. Microphone
4. Be available on date and time decided upon


Cheers and we hope for a good turnout and some productive initiatives.


Thomas

Some initial thoughts - get MODDB and Steam pages to attract members, get people who have hosted sites to post in the forums more often!

Burd!

The fact that this site provides free hosting is more than enough reason to advertise for it. I have a few plans and ideas, I'll shout em' out at Decembar.

Goddamn my broken microphone. When will Logitech learn that they have to build headsets to be resistant to being sat on.

Damn I keep any minutes of what we talked about :P 
Well the main things I suggested (I think) were: adding tutorials for mapping / modelling in HL1 and HL2; adding more links to the hosted sites on the sidebar; getting the hosted sites to link back to the main HLC frontpage.

I just had another thought - we could have a reviews section for all the best mods.  No BS ones.  We could also have another section previewing promising mods, which I don't think many other sites do.
Both those things would be good for newbies who would like to know which mods out of the zillions available they should be playing.

We might also be able to make a proper page about the HIT model depot.  Right now thats just a hosted FTP site of sorts, it would be good if we could have a page about models as part of the HLC mainsite.  We could make the page kind of like your DOD page Tom, add pictures, descriptions, etc.

Twas jokin.

I think the first step is to stay here as much as possible. I'm making this site my homepage, I'm gonna' do some releases and WIP's here for now on. I'm only gonna' mingle in HIT when it's fully necessary. Fuck that noise, HLC /erection

I know there are already a couple of Podcast type shows out there, but I kind of feel they lack the personality, pacing or coherent presentation of proper radio shows.

It could be fun to make a fast paced radio show with people who are confident communicators and enthusiastic about the modding scene.  The content on it could be reviews / previews of mods; it would be good to get a group of people to deliver a collective opinion on something so that differences in opinions can be reflected. 

It wouldn't be any good if some people on the show were like "oh no, I haven't seen / heard of that / played it", people would need to prep well beforehand and make sure they can make a good contribtion.

Ok guys we are aiming at December 3rd for the discussion, the time is hard to pinpoint.

Right now its nearly 2000hrs, so use your forum clock to figure out the difference (posts are date stamped with YOUR local time)

I am pretty flexible, post the ranges you are avail that day.

Ok, so its going ahead for 3 DEC 08, the time will probably be between 1000hrs Mountain Standard Time.

Check to see if you can make it! Either myself, Ackart or James will be hosting the chat, its best to add all three of us to Skype to ensure you get added.

I have no idea what 1000hrs mountain standard time is, unless you mean 10pm.
