So, it's taken me awhile (due to school), but I've finally come up with the promised restructuring of Game on!.The new structure I've decided on is a combination of badp's idea and my own.
The new system will work on a four-week cycle. For three weeks, we will play two main games, Game A, and Game B every weekend. Game A will be played every Saturday, and Game B every Sunday (both at 1900 - 2215 UTC). On the fourth week two different games will be chosen, and those will be played that weekend in place of the two main games. The four week cycle will then repeat itself.
Game A and Game B
Initially, Game A will be Team Fortress 2 and Game B will be Minecraft. However, if there is enough support to switch out one of these games for another one, we can. Ideally we would do this at the start of a three week cycle, instead of in the middle of on, announcing the change a week or more before hand (so users know in advance a change has taken place.
The Fourth Week
The games played on the fourth week can be just about anything, although some restrictions will be placed. Obviously the games will need to have online multiplayer, but should also lend itself well to being played in a 3-hour time period. The games to be played on the Fourth week will be announced at the start of a new three week cycle.
Where will the schedule be posted?
The Game on! chat room will be where the schedule will be posted the start of every cycle, and where any other announcements will be made.
I have also converted the Game on! Schedule question to feature the schedule for the current cycle. The following cycle will also be posted there, although it will only be posted a week or two in advance.
Where can I suggest a game to be played?
All game suggestions should be posted as answers to this question. Please limit yourself to one game per answer. Games will be chosen based on their score, so please make sure to vote on any games posted. However, if you down vote a game, please leave a comment indicating why. That way we know if it is simply because you dislike the game, if their is something about the game which makes it a bad fit for game on, et cetera.
I'm looking for a few volunteers to help me organize Game on!. The main responsibility will be to make sure Game On! runs every week. The game to be played on the fourth week, and any changes to Game A and Game B, will also be decided by this group.
This section is somewhat vague, but that's because it's hard to say what exactly the organizers will be doing, it will depend on the game. For example, if we are playing a Minecraft adventure map, you would make sure that our Minecraft server is up and the map is uploaded.
If you would like to volunteer, please post it as a comment.
Editors and Recorders
I'm looking for volunteers to record some of our Game On! sessions. We won't be doing this for every session, only some of them. Some games simply don't lend themselves well to such a recording, and their is also the matter of the time it takes to edit and upload the video to YouTube.
With that said, I have no experience with video editing, nor do I have a program to record videos. Therefore I'll be looking for volunteers to record some of our Game On! sessions, edit them, and upload them to our YouTube channel.
If you would like to volunteer, please post it as an answer, and also include what you would be willing to do (record, edit, both, et cetera)
If you have any complaints about any of the users please send use the above E-Mail to send us an E-Mail outlined with your complaints. We want this to be a good experience for everyone, so if any users are causing anyone problems we would like to know so we can talk to them about it.
