For almost all of the time that Groups
have been in the alpha testing period, a couple of other persons and myself have been thinking seriously about making a group for all the different kinds
of programmers/scripters/coders on dA: userscripters, journal CSSers, dA skinners, dAmn bot programmers and so on. People who are focused on making their own improvements to dA
, regardless of whether they're official or not. People who care about making dA better, and have the ideas and the skill to turn it into something users can download or install.
The only problem is at least for me that while Id love to work on creating such a group, I know I wont have much time to participate in the day-to-day moderation, operation, conceptualization and general managing of the group.
Another thing is that Im not quite sure what exactly all of us would do in such a group what justifies its existance other than a list of people who do these kinds of things? What should we do?
Galleries? Knowledge bases or tutorials? Wikis? Forums? Whah?
This is why Im asking you guys. I know Im not the only one who has thought of such a group. And I know a lot of my watchers could easily be a part of this group, and Id love to hear your ideas. If we end up making it, what do you think we should be doing? Additionally, could you join the management of such a group and spend time making it awesome once its launched?If you can answer any of these questions, feel free to do it in a comment (here) or a note to me. Thanks!
Edit: Thanks for all of your feedback so far. I'm happy to say that a group will be out in a couple of days, and I'm going to need all of your help to make it awesome and keep it that way. Keep your eyes peeled!
If you're interested in joining, note me your Skype username and I will add you to the group convo! Go go!
