WDG LIST - NOTES AND OBJECTIVES
The WDG list objectives are as follows please take note of these when
participating in list discussions.
- Topics and mail sent to WDG in general should be about the game as a whole.
Mail should not complain about individual worlds or games, but discuss
concepts, provide insight, and suggest ideas that help to develop War of Wizards.
- When replying to messages, try to keep as much of the original message
in the reply as necessary to understand the conversation without having
to go back and read previous email to work out what the message was
- If suggesting new topics or points for discussion, ensure that they are actually points
for discussion. i.e. Saying that something sucks or such and such is crap is not good enough.
State facts about why you think something is no good, then state how you think it can be
improved or leave it open and ask for people opinions on how it can be improved. Inititating
topics the first way just opens up the discussion list to a heated discussion that will probably
not solve the problem that was never defined reasonably in the first place.
- Also to reiterate the above, not everyone has the same experience/spells/heroes/lands/races
and so on. So stating generalizations is not good unless you back it up with fact.
- Discussion lists have a tendency to get personal at times. I will ask that
players respect each others opinions and to keep the "big picture" in mind, "To make wow
a better game for all."
Thanks to everyone that participates in WDG, the improvements to the game since the initial group was formed
has been fantastic.
