Gauging Interest

Hello,

This post is just an idea post. I have a few ideas that I want to see how many people will be interested in them. I will start with the one that I would have to roll out first if it were to happen.

 Idea One: How would members of HP feel about an HP Calendar / Planner for 2021? It would not have the HP events in it just yet as they vary monthly at the moment (Maybe we could try something like that for 2022 if it was wanted), but for 2021 we can use player submitted images to make the calendar/planner for the year – if there was interest in it.

 Idea Two: Is the bigger idea of the two and it would not be ready until early next year. We hear the feedback you guys give – we love the feedback you guys give and we listen. We try to find ways to implement it around the game the best we can. We have gotten feedback about recognition more than one time. I agree – participating in things that are huge around HP (like the mascot contest) would be more amazing than it already is if there was more recognition for the winners.

Then I sat down to make our yearly family “yearbook” for 2020 and I realized… what if HP had a yearbook? The books would be print to order. I, and other staff members, would take down stuff yearly (player of the month, mascot contest stuff, photography contest winners, and more) and put it in a yearbook style fashion. Then we could post the link so that members could order the books as they pleased and possibly even offer and ebook version of it for a lower cost.  

I don’t want to formulate the book over the year if there is no interest though.

I have already talked to Blitz about this, or I would not be making this post. Now all that is left is your feedback so we can see how we can move forward with these ideas.

So tell me, what do you think?

Personally, I'd rather just have digital versions of them. Like a google doc calendar that players could have access to that'd give me a notification on my phone for HP events.


 


And the yearbook thing would be great, but not something I'd want to pay for. Just something that would be nice to click on here and look back on. I always hate in contests when a clue will be like "they used to be a staff member" and it was five years before I played HP, and there's no public record of that. If there was a yearbook, stuff like that could be recorded in a place where everyone could see it, like the mascot page that finally got added.

I like the ideas, but i wouldnt pay RLD for the yearbook either...maybe it could be another upgrade perk somehow? Or id pay hpd/hpb for it, depending on the cost and the need for it.

So from the feedback, it isn't something you are willing to pay for - but you would like to see it happen as an upgrade perk.


 


The issue with the yearbooks was I was planning on it being something that was a hard copy - however I may be able to adjust that down into an eBook format instead - which may even be even easier. I will start this month with collecting the information and stuff to start the book and as it goes throughout the year we will see how it progresses.


 


With that being said: Would you rather it be a PDF or an ePub file?

I'd rather it was just something accessible on HP, as part of the website.

Jaya's idea sounds like a "Book of Ages".
Like JellyNeo has:

Something physically on the site is outside of the realm of what I can do. 


I am willing to get it all together in a PDF format (which... it isn't hard to make them PDF, ePUB, MOBI ect... and I know that on my personal computer, it opens PDFs in whatever browser I tell it to so hopefully that will help. :)

I would be happy to help with some of the writing Concourse :)


I am a part time writer for a few companies (please don't take my writing skills/typing skills on here as an example!)
