It was pointed out to me the other day that it might do us some good to expand our forums a bit in terms of the number of discussion topics available. Obviously, our forums aren't going to be everything for everyone, as OGA has a very specific aim, but it's also true that there are a lot of areas that pertain to game art (particularly relating to FOSS) that we aren't really touching on. So, here's where I need you guys:
If you're looking to participate in OGA but you're not quite sure how, we're looking for ideas for new forums, particularly from people who would be willing to become the maintainers for those forums. This would essentially entail keeping an eye on your designated forum and making sure that any questions asked there are answered, as well as generally participating in the conversations there.
So, do you have a skill that you'd like to talk about and pass on to the community? Just reply to this post or stop in and find me (BartK) or one of our other editors on OGA's IRC channel!
Edit: If you check out our forum section, you'll see that a number of new forums have been added. If you'd like to become a forum maintainer for one of those, please let me know. We're also willing to set up a game project forum for you (like we've done with OSARE) if you have a relatively active project and are looking for a place to host a forum. Finally, if you don't want to take on the responsibility of maintaining a forum, but would still be willing to answer questsions on a particular subject, post a comment in the appropriate forum(s) and let people know that you're lurking. :)
