Feel free to share any Xbox Clubs.

Here is an explanation of clubs (& LFG):



Some things to be aware of about Clubs (as of now - this stuff will likely change): -

Clubs must have unique names unless you choose "Hidden" as the privacy setting, then you can call your club anything you like
You cannot change the privacy setting of a club after you've created it
Even though it says you can, you cannot currently rename a club after you've created it
You cannot currently delete a club that you've created, so be wary of making test clubs
You can follow/unfollow clubs, so if you join a club and you don't want posts from it clogging up your activity feed, you can unfollow it and still remain a member of it, plus you can also follow clubs that you haven't joined
The "Likes to play" area only shows 5 and a bit game tiles at the moment, which is a bug - when it's fixed you'll be able to add up to 10 games and all 10 tiles will be visible
All clubs created while the feature is in preview will still exist when the dashboard is rolled out to all users

The NZGamer group on the PS4 gets quite a bit of use. It'll be interesting to see how the Xbox group gets used.

For all those in Preview BuNNNy has set up an NZGamer Club.

 

personally I think it would be best to have:

  • 1 club for NZGamer peeps to join for General Gaming/Friends
  • 1 for Community Nights that can be used to add events and then for people to share their clips onto.
  • and game specific for the odd games like Forza or Gears etc

This will not make NZGamer.com happy. It's effectively removing the need for members to check the forums.

Most of them already don't check the forums - see evidence here in the forums :)

 

If this makes them check -something- and ends up increasing peeps in community nights and such, surely that is a win?

 

We get people saying "completely forgot this was on" - if notifications are coming to the console and probably the phone, surely that is an up? Remember how big things have got when MyRepublic got ads on the dashboard. I don't know what the solution is for getting people to come to the forums though :(

Would NZGamer be mad? They're offering up a competition/prize if they get to 500 members on the PS4 community. Surely this is no different?

I've heard from the horse's mouth it's a b*tch to use and they don't really use it at all.

From NZGamer or users? Users post there, but it's usually just inane bollocks and chitchat. It's not useful enough to actually organise game sessions around or anything.

Funny you should say that. Eventfinda today told me about a concert in February with B*witched, Atomic Kitten, and S Club 3 ... whatever happened to the other 4? Maybe they just didn't need the money?

 

That's what I mean about not knowing the solution for the forums. We may just find that some of those people -will- stick around in the form of these clubs - if all it requires them to do is sign up for events, and maybe click a few like buttons, and even that would be better than nothing IMO, and I would have thought from NZGamer's O as well.

I wonder if the new "clubs" feature will also replace those previously used in Forza. Mvon (or Bunnny), if you're part of preview maybe its worth setting up one for Forza?

 

Does anyone know if you can transfer ownership of a 'public' club at a later date?

 

Before we get a bunch of NZGamer clubs started, is there a naming convention they want? NZGamer.com - Forza. Me being pedantic maybe, but don't want to see the NZGamer brand diluted. I can think of a number of clubs that would be quite useful.

 

As far as I'm aware, if people want to have a chance at the prizes from a My Republic community night, then they still need to register their participation on the forum anyway. Also announcing a My Republic community night through a club message, should only assist in the advertisement and sponsor coverage, so I think it's a win-win.

Maybe with clubs we could finally get ODST Legendary going since we will be able to spam BuNNNy and Bosz aye Mvon.
