Make an advertising/promotion subforum or sticky that has the weekly stats like games played, max users online or average users online (if possible), game downloads, site hits etc. People can post ideas on how to promote the game and make it popular.

I have been up for 40 hours playing live poker at a casino and have taken adderall to stay alert and focused and its the morning so I can't sleep so this post may be totally retarded.

Anyways, thoughts?

Id like to follow u up on this, having also spent the night playing card games involving monetary wagers, and also unable to sleep due to mild intoxication, this sounds interesting to me

Theres so much analytics that can be done. I like the other thread with the idea to find out the most popular maps being played also

Youve said before that it seemed i was conspiring to start my own War2 server / community but Im actually not, i just like learning more about Linux, and it is fun to me to compile pvpgn, edit conf files, play with mysql databases, apache php etc.

That being said, because i have my own server i can mess with things, not having to worry about breaking it, and then i hopefully i can try to write some useful codes like this and contribute back to the community

I think the mod/dev going on here seems pretty secretive, i hope we can share more things like an open source project. I dont think theres anything to fear really, blizzard doesnt seem to care (surely someone there has to have noticed war2.ru on the front page of google search results for any combination of "warcraft" and "2" "ii" etc)

Also no one seems to be trying to compete - if they were itd be stupid, the community is too small to have more than one.

So anyway, this is just a rant to push for a more open source dev community and maybe split into some groups to work on specific code projects together. I would have fun with that

After re reading your original post it seems you are talking about marketing / promotion and i just ranted about mod / dev, but its along the same thought of working together and tracking progress

im not intoxicated nor insomniac but if those statistics could be gathered, should be put in web page in an automated fashion, not a forum sticky.

I agree that the more things that are open to the community, the more successful the game will be. I believe you that you do not intend to start your own server as that would be dumb and only help kill the game, I wasn't totally sure before but was just trying to feel you out to gauge your true intentions. The more manpower, the better as each person has his own individual skills to contribute.
