2016 NEW: PEOPLE: HG: Community-based entry paths on the hypergrid. HGProject

Community-based entry paths on the hypergrid
Updated 5/24/2016
New people coming into virtual worlds often wonder where to find people and what to do next.  A community-based entry path reverses that pattern:  start by finding friends and discovering what is already available that fits your interests.  Then come into the virtual world directly on a path and to a place set up by the community.  You already know people in the community and can quickly contact them inworld.  

Community entry method

  • The community establishes a Google+ community for outworld contacts.
  • The community is open for joining, no approval required.
  • Community members post about activities and events in the G+ community.
  • The G+ community and the community web page link to each other,.
  • The community web page carries instructions for entering virtual worlds.
  • If the community has set up its own welcome site, the instructions lead there.
  • The community welcome site has a join panel to the main community group.
  • The entry instructions tell new people to join the group and introduce themselves.
  • The entry instructions and arrival point have instructions for starting in a virtual world. 
  • When people come in, they have friends and are in the community space.
