How do we raise awareness of Skill Training Complete?

Asked by [ Moderator ]

We are off to a good start, but how do we get more EVE players to ask and answer questions on here?

Some thoughts:

  • Have CCP tweet about STC
  • Contest: ISK for questions answered/asked
  • buttons to share a good question/answer to twitter/facebook
  • widget to display profile/badges/reputation on people's blog
  • ads in EON, and various podcasts
  • sticky subject in EVE forums stating that people document question/answer in STC once a discussion is over
  • Have CCP guys to come by once in a while to answer some questions, and publicize it

I don’t use twitter at all, but there is a community on there for Eve Bloggers. Can we piggy-back STC onto the #tweetfleet and publish highly rated questions/answers every week or so?

think we need a little more content before CCP would be willing to endorse us.

Yeah good point DarinaS. Once a questions becomes ‘popular’ it triggers a tweet: what is DPS? see answers on STC http://is.gd/123

Pdcasts is a great idea. I’m sure the Planet Risk guys would give us a shout-out etc.

I have created the Evelopedia page for SkillTrainingComplete.com. Please go and edit it to show any details I might have missed or got wrong.

any wiki experts here? am I supposed to do something after typing in the text and pressing “save”?

I can only guess it’s related to the “.com” part of your page name

I tried it on a different computer, without any wiki login details, and the page displayed for me. Have you tried again recently?

If we have a resident (out-of-character) blogger or two as regular contributors, then a plug or two on their blogs will do wonders for the site's readership.

Also, a weekly/monthly summary post to the forums of Eve-O, BattleClinic.com and Scrapheap-Challenge.com would bring STC to the attention of a lot of Eve pilots. We just need to make sure we do not repeat the same information more than once on the same site as that might be interpreted as spamming.

I’ll mention it when I get the rest of the kinks worked out in an upcoming post.

I’ve posted on Eve-O forums as well as Scrapheap-Challenge (where I was rightly chided for making my first post a plug). Anyone who is an existing member of any of these communities, I highly recommend posting there and letting those people know about STC.

A mention in one or two high profile eve blogs would help a lot. Also questions that are answered by a summary and/or a link to a forum post/dev blog etc should be discouraged. This adds nothing to the site and means that people coming to the site to find an answer to a question leave again immediately and hence won't hang around to answer questions/get involved.

Ask several well known players, corps or alliances--especially training corporations and alliances--to endorse the site by putting links in their profiles. That may bring in more people who don't necessarily read all the blogs and forums out there.
