I look forward to serving my teammates and communities in learning from the past, listening to the present, and leaving a legacy for the future.
So, I've been thinking for many years now that there should be a game design &modding; hub, with the express purpose of supporting the smaller devs be they hobbyists or indie.
A centralized resource area, linking people from all over, who are skilled and motivated in a common area. Allowing & supporting their developments.
In addition to conducting research in the fields, such as what models of payment in games are effective & ethical.
The following are brief excerpts from my design documentation that I have so far:
This organization exists as a central moding & game design community hub, regardless of project/ site affiliation, genre, or time zone. This service can be thought of as an online talent agency, hybridized with the online dating format.
-Connect game designers (all fields)& Communities together, (hobbyist or Indie) To each other on a global centralized scale.
-Foster a atmosphere of cooperation, rather than competition
-Conduct ongoing macro& micro cyber, social, organizational research.
-Apply & test above results ethically, honorably & respectfully.
-Educate individuals, teams, organizations, and communities of respective issues or processes.
-Promote and support the smaller hobbyist projects
-Retain respective team, project, site, organization sovereignty."
(I'm still working on a mission statement)

"3. News department- code name: The Spotlight

I've been told I need to gauge the market for such a service, as well as develop a formal business model.
I'm in the process of fleshing out the documentation & initial feedback.
It would be a massive undertaking, and If done, I want to make sure it's done right.
Other hybrid analogies include:
I'd really appreciate any feedback & critical analysis on the proposal.
