I have avoided FaceBook like a dead plague rat from day one (an attitude that my employer strongly encourages), and have absolutely no intention of joining just to get DF updates. I would appreciate any news put on FaceBook be mirrored on the main page or in the forums.

My plan is to use the home page of the DF website as a place to post all announcements first -- and then I will post them on social media. Also, the plan is to use our DF Forums as the main place to discuss this project.

The DF Forums are about to get very busy! We will soon have a lot of new visitors.

Stefan,

As a long time supporter and avid forum reader/member I can't be more excited about ANY new approaches to creative designs you and the DF team come up with. However, I feel somewhat of a second fiddle when information about DF is first released on Facebook instead of these boards.

If I'm alone on this, then I'll have to deal with it but, if other forum readers/members, long time or not, feel that DF news should first be released on this board, then let's give a united cry for change.

Stefan, thanks for listening.


I think he has been good with communication. Facebook I imagine has more viewers than the forum itself on average... as an example anyone that has 'liked' Dwarven Forge will get the message as compared to those that might be looking to buy Dwarven forge at any particular time. Otherwise I usually visited the site when I was looking for more restock or wanted to add some that are normally in stock.

Then he added a few threads here soon after for discussing different things like basic questions.

So mostly Facebook brings people to DF site and those that come to the DF site will see the same stuff when they get here as well as discuss more things pertaining to it that are not discussed on facebook.

@dndgamer - Thanks for the post. I was beginning to think I was the only person not on FB. I've just been thankful in the past the other forum members have posted threads in the forum regarding FB updates, otherwise I'd be totally out of the loop.

My plan is to use the home page of the DF website as a place to post all announcements first -- and then I will post them on social media.
Glad to hear it!

Good to hear, and glad to get the newsletter today.

Will be wonderful to get a nice influx of new people/voices/addicts on the forum....hope the log-in thing is fixed soon so they feel extra welcome ;-)

All

To be realistic - for new people it often will be easier to start at Facebook. This makes it difficult to cater for us here as well as to get as many new people in as possible. What needs to happen is that some DF fans help to post whatever happens on Facebook here as well (some already do so) - and start moving / enticing / hearding people from Facebook over here to the boards.

Any volunteers?

I dislike Facebook a lot myself - so I'm not a good person to do that. In addition - I will be on holiday for 2 weeks - 28th March onwards - just soon after the KS starts.

I already have ramped up my presence on Twitter and look out for chatter about DF there. So I'm happy to move people from there over to here. There has already been a large spike in use of the word dwarvenforge in the last three days compared to the last three month.

Will be interesting to see what happens Monday.

I'm very excited about this Kickstarter and eager to learn more on Monday. Reaper Miniatures's website has a thread discussing this upcoming Dwarven Forge Kickstarter and I posted recommendations of Dwarven Forge's past products there.

I'm not sure what we will be seeing as stretch goals in this KS, but here's hoping for lava river tiles and bright green slime river tiles.

Any idea what time the DFKS will go live? I work midnights and I am sure I will be waking up every hour to check out the new stuff, so an anticipated start time might let me sleep a little easier.

I have to disagree Thod. The only thing myself and everyone I know use Facebook for is to connect with old friends and share photos of our lives & kids. None of us ever go there seeking out information about companies, or products etc. I use Google for that, and Goggle lists DF website as the first suggestion.
