Facebook group for the lans?

Is there a central group? I only see the GG one and the ones for each event? a central one would be good as a central point for all the lan photos / lan related news ect?

Or is there a way to automatically have photos posted in the event pages copied to a album on the GG page?

Re: Facebook group for the lans?

Get to it!

The chances of Rasher/a GG team member being active on Facebook for LAN discussions would be slim as they're already busy as it is but if you can create one and pop them as admins I'm sure they'd appreciate the extra bit of help.

Tag me in the group when you've made it so I can join.

Tag all of us in the group tbh. I'll bet there's a few people who are on/more active on facebook, that are not on/active on the forums. It would be a good way to advertise things like theme nights and random other group gaming too, and/or redirecting to the forums to try to encourage people to be a little more active here

Re: Facebook group for the lans?

Hey peeps,

It turns out we already have a Facebook page for this kind of thing, however, there needs to be a bit of an explanation to qualify things a bit!

GameGrin / GameOn
The naming difference is probably the "big hurdle" here. GameGrin is a trading name of GameOn Networking Ltd and is used for the website and associated features, such as the forums.

You might have noticed, that in the forums, the room is still named "GameOn LANs" - this is the official name under which the LANs are run. Now that's out of the way, the Facebook "page" for this is here:

GameOn on Facebook

Get yourself liking/joining that page, and from hereon in we'll be using that to mark events like LANs, Theme Nights, Tournaments (oops, spoiler) and other things like that. We'll still be advertising them here too - because community

I'm an admin on that page and going to be making a more positive impact with it going forward.

Might be best to put this in the GO FB page about section so its clear and there is no confusion mate
Newbies to the lan might not realise that GG is also part of the same and vice versa.

Cheers, ill get pictures rounded up and try and get as complete a collection of past lan pics as I can, any objections with me pinching images from the old lan page?

Ill give Fin a poke and see if he can put a link to the FB page somewhere on the lan booking site

I think this last lan has shown us how useful Facebook can be now for lans, the live pics thread died pretty quick but the FB event page has blown right up

Also, we need a "Forums" link directly to here:

http://forums.gamegrin.com/forumdisplay.php?f=19


I'll be making a series of changes to the FB page, which will include updates surrounding the naming.

It's in the todo list, however, I don't currently have access to my main computer so I can't sort them out!
