Thanks to idea contributions from readers of Community Spark and the blog of Patrick O’Keefe, we came up with the following idea for a panel:
Are You Ready to Manage an Online Community?
Managing an online community is a challenge. What do you, as administrator, need to be equipped with? We’re not talking technology, we’re talking you as a person. What do you need to know, be ready for and what common pitfalls can you avoid?
I think this would be a fantastic panel which would raise some great issues and be useful and interesting for everyone involved. The panel would include myself, Patrick O’Keefe and April Burba who is the Associate Producer of Dungeon Runners, an MMORPG from NCsoft and the former Community Manager for Tabula Rasa and City of Heroes, also MMORPGs from NCsoft.
In order to increase the chances of this panel being picked, we need you to vote for it! If you think the panel would be interesting and of value to attendees (and why wouldn’t you?!?), then please pop along to the panel picker and put in a vote and a good word for us – it would be greatly appreciated.
Voting ends on Friday 29 August, so please vote now!
If our panel is picked I would love to meet up with some readers of this blog and put some faces to names. Furthermore, I think every reader of this blog would find some value in this panel – let’s just work at getting it chosen!
