With the launch of the official Foundry forum, I wanted to send out a re-invite to all of you to contribute to Starbase UGC, which is a user-generated-website for user-generated content (AKA The Foundry).
The site has two parts:
1. A Blog written by all of you. UGC authors may use the blog to promote their missions, players can review others' missions, and all contributors can post their thoughts about the Foundry, its potential, and its limitations. If you register for the site (and we confirm that you're human), then you'll be able to write for website.
2. A Wiki edited by all of you. If you promote your missions on the blog, you can also create links to those posts or entirely separate pages for your missions in the UGC Wiki. Additionally, you can use the Wiki as a Foundry reference guide, with toolset tutorials, tips and tricks, etc.
Please join us. We've had some awesome contributors so far, and I want to give a shout out to HeathenStorm, the Illustrious Q, Captain Quirk, USS Andromeda, AtomicFB, and all the other great folks writing for the blog.
Since we know that UGC authors should promote their missions in order to see them eventually included in the main game, we hope that our site will provide you with a space to do so. If you want players to play and review your mission, blog about it, post some screenshots, or put the mission in the wiki for people to find. You won't have to rely on word of mouth alone.
This looks awesome. I hope the moderation is cooler than STO's. Oh, did I say that out loud?
We only moderate spam, porn, and maybe sometimes when it is necessary under the circumstances, like if a contributor is being really super offensive. I hope that I'll never have to moderate a post. Our basic rule is try to be respectful to other members of the community. Otherwise, speak your mind.
