It would be nice if it were possible to link people to individual BYOND guilds, primarily the main guilds, instead of linking them to BYOND has a whole. This would allow people to be immersed in the genre along with people on similar interests, instead of being thrust into the BYOND community as a whole - which doesn't seem to appeal much to people who aren't already interested in what it offers.
But without getting into any debates about that, I'm wondering if anyone has ideas on how we can generate more participation in the main guilds. I see a lot of people making posts on their personal blogs about the progress of their games and such, but how could we get these people to submit posts like this to the main guilds instead? Wouldn't it be better if all of the information about BYOND games of a specific genre could be found in one guild based on the genre?
What can be done to encourage more activity around the main guilds? What are your ideas?
