We have been evaluating tools to help us implement the promises we've been making about Crowdforging. Today, I'd like to introduce you to our first Crowdforging platform test, Ideascale.
We are going to test Ideascale's system and see if it is a good fit for our community and for Paizo & Goblinworks. To begin we're using a very bare-bones site without a lot of customization. If we believe this tool is succeeding we'll be able to improve it over time to make it look and feel more like the rest of our on-line presence. For now, we're sticking with the "out of the box" layout and graphics. The real value is the ideas and not the decoration anyway.
Ideascale works a bit like Reddit. You are able to submit ideas to our Community, associated with various Topics. Those ideas can be reviewed by other users and voted up or down to indicate support for the suggestion. People can also make comments in an attached thread for each idea which will help keep feedback centralized.
Currently we are not paying for the "single sign-on" capability of Ideascale. So you will need to create a new account on Ideascale to participate. There will be no linkage between your Ideascale account and paizo.com or goblinworks.com at this time. So please don't hijack a well known community member's name - we'll have to boot you and we're busy and would rather not have to untangle those kinds of messes.
This is as much an Alpha Test of this tool as the upcoming Alpha Test of the client is. We'll be curious to see how the community responds and how much use the site gets. Our continued use of it will be dependent on how active it becomes.
Without further ado, Here's the link to the Crowdforging tool for Pathfinder Online!
