So the SEO team has come out with some specifics for how they could help promote. I think the sponsorship opportunity makes the most sense for gaming.

What are the lan parties, tournaments, and gaming events that SEO could sponsor for Gaming.Stackexchange.com?

  • I'd love it if Jeff implemented this to get at the very least a blog post from some Steam developer

I know we have a fairly strong Starcraft 2 contingent on this site. I'd be willing to take the time to organize a online Tournament and I'm even willing to put up $50 of my own money as first place prize.

  • +1, great idea.

  • @Cross I assume you mean "Can we get HD to cast it?" I don't know. I don't know HD personally, though it maybe worth it. We could try a number of other Casters out there, certainly some of them might have the free time to do this. Alternatively I'd be willing to do audio commentary for the VoD, as I won't be playing in the tournament if I'm organizing it.

  • @tzenes Anyone would be good. I mentioned HD because he has one of the larger followings, and you've already said you hate Husky.

  • Do you mean a tournament between high-end SC2 players, or between players who are already members of gaming.SE?

  • @Oak I had assumed community members as that would promote the community of the site, but it was suggested that we might try to make it larger to attract more attention

    Well, if we want high visibility maybe all we need to do is to get the SE staff to sponsor an existing top-tier tournament. The pool prize for the HDH was like total 3500$, and look what it did to iRip, the sponsor: google.com/… - a serious spike in google searches during the tournament. And keep in mind that since SC2 players are gamers, our site is far more likely to interest them than iRip's.

  • Well I might be willing to Paypall a few buck to increase the price money for these things, so perhaps if others pitch in, we can raise a nice sum :-)

  • I've contacted Robert about this, we'll see if anything can be done about this great idea.
