Can we link the quest submission box and guildsite?

Can we put in a checkbox below the submission box for a quest so the user can decide whether their response is shared with the guildsite community. Perhaps it could go to a general news feed first and then in to a separate news feed based on the tags of the quest. If the default is to share then people can opt out for a private response to the quest owner. Just seems like a lot of back and forth between the sites to complete quests and build the community.

  • Sorry for the extra step. The guildsite is a separate tool we licensed to host our social space while we are building that type of functionality inside gamelab this coming fall. The two systems aren't designed to talk to each other.

    When you're designing, you can make it easier for players if you include a direct URL to post on the guildsite (if that's what you want them to do, it's not a required step). It's very common to have a "guild site" and online community associated with game environments, typically people will leave main tabs open and go back and forth between the two. 3D GameLab has three main sites:

    1. Guildsite (where we socialize)
    2. GameLab portal (where we quest)
    3. Get Satisfaction (where we share feedback about the software itself), this IS linked from within gamelab.

    Finally, just a point of clarification: their comments about the quest are, by default, shared inside gamelab and automatically associated with the quest. You can view these at the bottom of quests by clicking on "view public comments." I was assuming you were referring to player's work/posts, etc, not the comments about the quest itself, correct?

    Yes I was talking about work submissions for a quest but thanks for clarifying. I have been linking via URL but just had that idea to embed them together but as I expected you're already on to it. Awesome!
    Not being a gamer I'm also not used to a "guild site" external to the game so you read me like a book there as well. ;-)
    Btw am responding to this via iPhone and all seems to work very well.

  • I’m Loving the interaction.
    That is exciting to hear that the iPhone connection is behaving well. We are looking forward to for the development of GameLab that will allow us those kind of linkages and, as Lisa said, they are in the plan. :-)

    The guild site will serve as a temporary tool for these types of communications but we plan for those to be included features in the permanent tool as soon as we can add them.
