A joint venture by davie1903 & fenixink
What is Project Illumination?
Project Illumination is a community service alliance, our goal is to connect new players to the community and help them establish social connections within the game.
What does that mean?
It is our belief that as fun as MMA Tycoon is, the community is it’s greatest strength. It is the connections people make in the community that keeps them playing or coming back. We believe that if we can create these connections with all new players early on, we can help the game grow; providing Mike with the precious funds necessary to better the game for everyone. We also believe that keeping new managers in the game will strengthen the games ecosystem by creating a much larger field of managers with a variety of experience.
How do we plan to accomplish these goals?
Project Illumination has identified 5 primary directives to reach it’s goals.
This is still early on in the process and we fully expect to have to change and evolve.
Provide consistent day to day advice and feedback for new players in alliance chat.
Compile information from as many sources as possible into an all-in-one guide that can be distributed via pm to new players.
*UPDATE* The guide is available for viewing at this link and is a work in progress: The Panopticon
Encourage the community to contribute to this goal in whatever way they can. New players obviously won’t be able to provide slider experience but they can easily send pms out with the project forum link and the all-in-one guide link.
Facilitate community connections through meticulous record keeping and constant contact. We will build a roster of managers willing to mentor (via the in-game mentorship or otherwise) new players but do not wish to leave their alliances to officially join Project Illumination.
Our long term goal is to become an institute of learning. We want to take new players in, help them make connections, and then send them out into the world to pursue their own ambitions. We wish to continue supporting Project Illumination alumni and expect that some graduates may wish to continue on as a contributor to Project Illumination.
Why should you care?
We need you to care, as much as we might like to say we’re experts none of us are experts on everything. We are relying on the community to lend us it’s support. We want to compile the all-in-one guide but we need you to help fill it. All contributors will be credited with their contributions and listed here. We will be contacting managers who have placed guides on the forums to ask their permission to use segments of their guides. We do not intend to delve into the deepest concepts of subject matter in the all-in-one guide, instead we aim to provide a list of things not to do and a general overview of the subject matter with links to the full guides or other sources. These entries may vary in complexity dependent upon the wealth of knowledge the community contributes.
We also need as many volunteer mentors as we can get to put into our mentor index.
Please contact either fenixink or davie1903 if your interested in being added to the index.
Please send any contributions to: projectIlluminationcontrib@gmail.com
You will receive confirmation of receipt and we will have all contributions archived.
What about financial support?
If you wish to provide financial support to the project please donate to the Noob Fund.
We look forward to providing the knowledge new players need to become self-sustraining in addition to the startup funds provided by the Noob Fund.
