Weekly Musing: Improving gaming communities

Our Musings topics give Destructoid community members the chance to have their voices heard on the front page.

Seeing as Destructoid is hosting a PAX panel next week entitled, "how to make online gaming communities suck less," we thought it'd be downright irresponsible not to involve you, the actual residents of this hear Dtoid gaming community, in on the discussion.

It goes without saying that most gaming communities are something approaching horrendous: full of trolls, flaming, and attitudes of bullsh*t entitlement and superiority, it's no surprise that the vast majority of people who visit your average gaming blog never bother to set up accounts and post their opinions.

But how do we fix it? How do we make online gaming communities more welcoming, interesting, intelligent places to be? For this special weekly musing, we'll be reading aloud some of the best suggestions at our PAX panel (Friday, Unicorn theatre, 2:30).

Feel free to hit the jump for further instructions.

 

Put "Weekly Musing" in the title of your cblog, and be sure to choose the Monthly Theme tag.

We may still promote good musings to the front page, and the "I Suck at Games" theme is still going on, but we also want to be able to involve the Dtoid community in our PAX discussion. 

The theme is pretty obvious, I think: gaming communities suck a little, and we need to find a way to mitigate that suckage. If you've got any questions, ask them below.
