Hi everyone! After yesterday’s UK public holiday, it’s that time of the week when we let you know what we’ve all been getting up to. Here’s the latest from team Just About.
Gamescom comedown ✈️
Al, Joel, and Rupert are buzzing after a busy but exciting Gamescom. As Al explained last week, the mission was to meet with game devs and publishers who might be interested in starting their own Just About communities and help them see the wisdom of doing so. These conversations went extremely well, but as I can’t share the details, “dude trust me” will have to suffice as assurance. Momentum is building, and in large part that’s thanks to you.
We introduced ourselves to the wider games industry at GDC back in March, but we had nothing much to show then, and as a poet once said, promises stick like farts in a hurricane. (There have been many lewd poets.) It makes a huge difference to be able to show the platform working and members engaging with what makes Just About different, so thank you all for doing just that - it really is having an impact. You’ve helped us win a lot of attention where we only had curiosity.
Record bounties on Just About EVE Online 🚀
There’s a lot going on in EVE Online right now, which means there’s a lot going on in our EVE community. We set live several bounties related to the Epiphany event and the Council for Stellar Management (CSM) elections, meaning that until today’s expirations we had nine EVE bounties live at once - a record for the platform. It’s been great to see the engagement on these event-based bounties, as they’re a bit different by nature, but EVE folks: what did you think of them? What changes would you make for future in-game events?
Platform update 🧑💻
Organic rewards have been live for a little while now and the tech team has been keeping an eye on stability and accuracy. From the user-experience standpoint, we’ve had good feedback so far, but as always we’re interested in whatever you have to share. Have you received some? How did it make you feel? Let us know!
Thanks all, see you around the site! - Rich
