Re: Sites: Developer promotion

Updating the first post in this thread should be done by everyone who does stuff like that or discovers stuff like that; saves a lot of time and prevents double posts.

Re: Sites: Developer promotion

All done except niftyGUI, applied for clearance to edit the wiki there, so this will be done anytime soon, too.

Are there any other sites? Since this has main priority, I'd ask everyone(!) who reads this to take a look at the list and search for sites that are missing where we could find interested developers for Illarion.

The next step would be to reverse activities: Instead of spamming other sites, contacting persons that wrote post themselves like "I search a team" or similar should be the obvious goal.

Sites that do not offer search options (for Illa)

Sites that may no fit:
http://www.gameops.co.uk/ 08/15/2012, they want money for looking for emplyees
http://www.gdconf.com/ ← I think this homepage as about a press meeting where games are discussed, not a good site to promote Illa unless you hold a speech there or so
http://www.animationarena.com/ A site about computer graphics and game design?, no Illa mentioned, we better ask them to review us after the VBU maybe (if we do at all ...)?

Sites to check

http://helden.de/ (aiming at german roleplayers for player promotion)
http://tv.orkenspalter.de/ (aiming at german roleplayers for player promotion, aks them if they'd like to do a review?)

The following sites should be checked in how far Illarion is already promoted there and whether the informations are up to date. Please move checked entries to the sites to do or submit Illarion directly!

Banned sites

On these pages, Illarion must not be promoted. Please add the constraint.

Illarion should and most certainly would not be promoted there. SIGGRAPH is a computer science group and the largest conference on cg (in a scientific way).
