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.

 

  1. Provide consistent day to day advice and feedback for new players in alliance chat.

 

  1. 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

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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.

Thanks coton getting the word out is just as important as mentoring.

 

Derail?

You should have read the entire first post son.

He clearly asks for donations to the Noob fund.

 

Castor glad to see you've taken an interest shall I add you to the mentor index?

First mentor questionnaires sent out and work has begun on the all-in-one guide.

We still need contributions for the guide and if any experienced managers are willing to be references to verify the information in the guide is correct contact me.

The last thing we want to do is put out an all-in-one guide with incorrect information on what each hidden effects or something of that nature.

 

Thank you for all your support thus far.

I am willing to become a mentor. I stopped mentoring due to a couple of reasons (My last mentee turned out to be some scumbag called Dagg and I was sick of taking on mentees who went inactive within a week). Just let me know what you need me to do.

 

Also, I would be willing to proofread the guide to point out anything that might be incorrect, and will also help in anyway I can with the guide. If you need to ask me any questions just PM me :)

Hey everyone,

 

if anyone has a guide or tips that they have they can either send to us or to the email in the first post.

 

Yes the guide can be used by everyone and it will be in depth so could help every sort of manager big or small.

 

If there anyone who would like to join just get in touch and we can get you joined. however, we will have a list of contacts who are going to be outside mentors so thank you to everyone that will help us with this venture and turn this into something special.

Not to derail or anything but Alexi did write quite a good guide a little while back. Probably search it on the forum and use some of it or mail and ask him if he has a copy or something.
