to webmaters or moderators... make a facebook spring page

Post by Horrorizer »

how do i get know off the existence of spring?
i seached for top strategy games and saw TA in 13 of a top 50
when i tested the game noticed is is very good but for sure have an remake
then i searched and get to ta3d project in tauniverse and after some more search i reach to spring

well all that was off topic (or no?)

i have only 2 days playing in spring and notice that the players community is low (maybe downgrading)
spring is a very good strategy game but is no published in any place.
for the community gets up again it need renown
facebook is one way and i think yours should put in it and in all games or non gaming comunities possoble
another are
ww.moddb.com (as indie game)
intercambiosvirtuales.org (a very popular spanish blog, to put a pack of spring+BA+popular maps. i know some ppl who just download every game posted in thet blog)
i will edit later to sugges more comunities for publicy

welcome :)

i thought facebook users only play farmville.
i think spring is not the kind of game that would profit from being on facebook because you can not try it out between checking messages.
of course you could make a facebook group yourself, doesnt need a webmaster for that :)

spring is on moddb: http://www.moddb.com/engines/spring
looks outdated though.

at the moment player count might be lower than usual because the latest release broke some things that will eventually be fixed.

Hi!
Please use a spell checker next time. There is already a spring page, but we could try to turn it into one of those spammer apps.

There is a spring group page I'm pretty sure I'm a member of.

It seems that you didn't look very hard (not that you *should*) to find spring-related pages, but some basic research of where spring is promoted already might help with your advertising endeavors. There are a few "top 10" lists or some such that spring is on, and can be found on a lot of linux gaming sites as well.

One of the oft-argued topics is *what* to advertise about. Is Spring just a clone of TA in 3D? No, its a lot more, actually, with a quite a few (unpolished) games supported by the engine. Additionally, the trouble with advertising the TA-aspect is the legal concerns, which only grow with popularity and renown.

So yeah, while having a small community has its downsides there are a few hurdles to overcome in the meantime.

Im an admin on one of them as is foreboding, here is the spring engine page:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Spring/29600477205?ref=ts

However, despite being more upto date, everyone is posting on the spring engine group:

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2258931045&ref=ts

Purely because it is older. I can update it and keep it updated, but the thing is ran by the likes of neddiedrow and black liger, or rather left to subside.

Then you should have handed it off to somebody who did ( obvious point: you still can )
