I've been playing around with LiveStream lately and I had an idea. It might be cool to pick some weekend and have a community mapping day, or do it over a few days ... Like a veteran Dark Modder puts up a live stream running through the tutorial, or a quick version of it, and newbies could go to the site any time they want to watch & follow along. It's a very user friendly way of getting new builders up to speed, and if they have any questions getting set up or in the tutorial, they can ask directly over the chat.
And then maybe they could even collaborate to make a quick crash chain project where everyone makes like a room for a mansion, then at the end someone can stitch them together... just something fun to do while they're all on together. And again people can just ask right there if they have a question.
Or maybe that's a dumb idea lol. Always something to be said for a good old fashioned 3-month contest too.
