Survey Results (2) : the One’s that Didn’t Make the Cut

When we conducted our survey for Starlit Citadel, there were a few comments that we found rather interesting, which we thought would make interesting discussions.  I’d like to post them here for your comments, especially if you see a comment or point that you’d definitely like to see us look into.

Community Involvement

We currently host gaming tables at VCon, Cos & Effect (the new Cosplay convention that’s replaced Anime Evolution) and GottaCon.  We are probably going to host a table at BottosCon as well and regularly donate games to both Can’t Stop the Serenity and the Diabetes for Gaming events.   We have also provided games to 1 Elementary School and 1 Camp at reduced prices to help promote gaming.

That being said, I’m not sure what else we could do to help promote gaming.  We don’t have a physical storefront to host regular gaming nights, nor do we have the human resources to regularly host one even if we did rent a place.  I am looking into developing a forums for the site to allow customers to interact and find one another, but outside of that, I’m tapped for suggestions.

German Imports

This is a tough one.  There’s 2 problems here – firstly, the last time we tried this, we found the cost of importing these games to be prohibitively high and the actual demand low.  Secondly, because I don’t speak German; it’s really hard to set-up and read the regular e-mail newsletters here.  However, I’m willing to give this another go if there is a high enough demand for this option.  Is there?

Product Comparison

A request was made to do side-by-side product comparisons (like what you’d see on most computer store sites).  We actually have the functionality on the site, currently turned off.  Turning it on would (a) clutter the website further and (b) slow-down page load time.  Is there interest for this functionality to be turned on?
