We have two new Global Moderators here in the forum.

Congratulations to you both:

Carcking
Bixby

I need to learn to keep my mouth shut. Apparently having opinions gets you conscripted.  ;D
Thanks for the welcome.

(I am more of an SMF support person for Scott if he needs it than anything else).

Yeah, I put Bixby in the global mods group to facilitate discussion about our marketing strategy. Carcking is the only one of the two expected to do moderating.

(5) ...I have a few ideas for engagement strategy to get more member participation in the forums and discussion.

An idea that would be nice if you can get some commitment from HiG would be a section in the forum where fan can ask questions and interact with HiG. Perhaps they could come once a week or so, or every month? They can just assign a guy to do this?

What I am doing - for the HiG-Chat or for the CarcassonneCentral forum or for the German Carcassonne-Forum?

If there are some questions about the rules and the rules are sometimes not clear enough - I ask HiG direct.
The normal case is, to write HiG an email but I prefer to ring them up. My contact there for the rules is Georg Wild.

Last year at the Spiel 2012 in Essen (Thursday 18.10.12) I had an interview with HiG - Georg Wild and Christof Tisch.
Thank you both, for answering all my questions about the rules of Carcassonne.

The questions gave me Obervet03 from CarcassonneCentral.
I posted the result of that interview at the HiG-Chat first in German. And then Obervet03 helped me with the translation and correction reading from German to English.
Thanks Obervet03 for your help.

I'll post the result of the interview at the rules section

Here at the CarcassonneCentral forum we have the CAR - "Carcassonne - The Complete Annotated Rules".
In the past Matt Harper was working on this. Obervet03 started in Summer 2012  with the CAR 6.0. I'm helping Obervet03 with the correction reading of the rules for the CAR and what I already did for the current CAR 6.1. and S-CAR 6.2 and W-CAR 1.0.

Last week and also yesterday I called with the people at HiG.
The normal way is that I have my monthly telephone call with HiG.
But sometimes it is neccessary to call more.
The next official call about questions of rules is in late Spring this year.

Greetings
kettlefish

There is no doubt I nominate kettlefish to be the official CarcassonneCentral liason to HiG. The work she has done has been immense and fantastic. Kudos to kettlefish!  :meeple:
I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!

As far as I'm concerned, she already was our official representative since she started doing this.

That's very cool, I was just reading the post about this and I think it is nice to know that we can get answers from the makers of the game!

Thanks for doing this.

I just added a block to the home page listing 10 active eBay items related to Carcassonne...

I noticed that you have the BBG latest 10, which is a great idea, but it is the latest 10 posts rather than topics and when you get a popular topic like the current one, you get 10 post/items of the same:

Not sure if your widget lets you amalgamate more than one feed per block? If it does, I think that it would be best to include the feed of the latest topics and not posts. You get this by clicking on the RSS icon besides each forum section.

I prefer topics too, but that was the only feed I could find which covered all forums. I think I will have to investigate doing my own aggregation; then I can also aggregate from the expansion forums.

Scott,

is it possible to put the part of the forum "News and Events" at the "Recent topics" at the first page, too?

There are only 5 "Recent topics" but not the "News and Events".

Yes, I can do that. I turned it off when we launched because the forum was empty.

The registration is stagnating by the members from the old forum to the new forum.

What can we do?
