After we posted the latest video on Moddb, we saw an enormous jump in page views that day. (Almost 1100, our all-time record for a single day.) I've been watching the statistics page for the HoO moddb page, and it appears that all media has a positive impact on the number of page views. Over the last two days, Armada posted one image, and I posted one image and one article. Our number of views for today, October 27, has increased dramatically from the average, but that media has had nowhere near the effect of the one video. Based on all of this, I feel that it would be very advantageous to our publicity to post more videos of over three minutes or so in length about anything interesting that has to do with the game. The problem here is obviously that we need people to make these videos before they can be posted. This is what I would propose: 1. We form a game promotion group (originally Pieter's idea, but tweaked a bit) that will produce and edit these videos, which will be headed by a senior community member. 2. Videos are of a standardized format and quality. 3. Videos can be done in the trailer style, in which case the team will be responsible for everything. There can also be "behind the scenes" videos in which a developer outside of the group explains some aspect of the game while it is shown onscreen. Topics could include the following, to start with: The process that goes into modelling a ship (this could be several videos) Historic Research Designing the special PA! ship. (I would do this one) Our view for the game's soundtrack (once we develop an actual consensus) Others. The group would collect the raw footage from that team member and then edit it to comply with the standardized format. One of the main goals here will be to get most of the videos posted to the main moddb site, so we can take advantage of all that traffic they get.
