Session Description
Message Boards have long been the tool of choice for community professionals and dev teams looking to communicate with and receive feedback from their player bases. Lately, however, we’re seeing dissent among community experts-- for some are making the conscious decision NOT to develop Official Message Boards for their games; much to the chagrin of community ‘purists.’ Find out what path YOUR product should take by joining us for a spirited discussion not only exploring the advantages/disadvantages of maintaining Official Boards…but hearing the tales of success and regret from those who were brave (or silly) enough to stray from convention.
