@JoeKGBX @Jythri There are lots of very talented and passionate people in this community creating super cool content. While there are some awesome places such as Fan Creations, DeviantArt, the Unofficial Discord or Reddit, there’s still quite a bit of fragmentation going on. These places are also not the best at showcasing the work that fans do in support of Battleborn and other Gearbox games.
It would be nice to see something similar to the Creations page on Bungie.net set up on Battleborn.com (or maybe creations.gearboxsoftware.com/battleborn), allowing fans to funnel all their work into one place, but also offering people with a way to like stuff and follow on to check out their other work.
I have considered setting up a section on my website to do this, but I doubt I’d have the time to moderate it so unless there are some community members out there willing to keep it clean, I’d only be creating a potential avenue for more toxic conversation
Things that could potentially be shared on such a page:
- Fanart, Videos and/or music, incl podcasts and video guides
- Fan Fiction
- Community Events / Tournaments
- Maybe even a place for Streamers and other Content Creators to plug their stuff
The idea being that people could “react” (ie like and/or share) to everything from one page (ie no clicking off to somewhere else) and filter down to just what they want to look at. It would also need to be responsive so people could view it from phones etc.
A common thing i always hear from people when they come across something for the first time is, “how come I have never seen/heard of this before?” I think if there was a Community/Creations page that was easy to find and easy to use, there would be a little less fragmentation in the Community.
