Jericho Message Board
Rich of Copywrite Ink has another timely posting today. If you're a Jericho fan you'll be glad you read it. It says, in part:
"On several occasions, I’ve read active fans on the Jericho CBS forum discuss how centralizing efforts on the network’s site might make sense. But yet, that doesn’t make any sense at all. Why?
Because not all Jericho viewers are created equal, but they all have equal value.
The truth is that many viewers, non-viewers, and even fans will never visit the CBS Jericho site. On the contrary, if they are to be nurtured, they have to be nurtured off the network site by dedicated people who manage bulletin boards, forums, and blogs, with each location gaining 50, 500, or even 5,000 new viewers to become interested in the show. Each one of them also serves as an important promotional outlet for CBS, promoting announcements like the upcoming chat with Dan Shotz next week."
Speaking of the CBS board Openminded of RFJ found this:
"Here are the 4 things Prospero moderation is supposed to do
- Maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for all community members.
- Seeding new discussions and pruning existing ones to ensure robust interactions.
- Helping new users get comfortable and answering questions from the entire community.
- Performing regular sweeps of community content to remove offensive messages as well as members who are intentionally/habitually disruptive or abusive.
- Compiling a weekly (qualitative and quantitative) report that summarizes ongoing conversations and interactions of the communities and analyzes trends."
I sure haven't seen any of this on the board.
