Just about every game developed has to have some forum where they send users to ask questions and they answer them. Since Stack Exchange is supposed to be about "professional Q&A", have we considered trying to recruit game developers to point people here for Q&A about their games? This would obviously involve them having someone who was able to answer questions here, but the community could help out as well.
The benefits for us are that we get more users, more questions, and we start to be known as a place to get "official" answers.
The main benefit for the companies would be
- Faster responses to questions
- A nice UI for asking and answering questions
- A well moderated site without the need to employ a moderator
The drawbacks of course would be that they couldn't combine it with a "Random discussion about the game" forum, and that they wouldn't have as much control over the site as if they hosted their own. I would think the target audience would be indie developers that don't already have a large company forum of their own setup.
