This announcement is so full of win we could hardly wait to tell you about it. Today EQHammer announced its User-generated Content System. In the spirit of EverQuest Next Landmark, where players are the superstars creating cool things, we’ve decided to give you, the players, the dreamers of dreams and the makers of guides, a platform.
You know those guides or well-thought-out opinions you wrote for the official forums, or those contributions you made to the wiki? Yeah, those are great. We love that you’re out there doing awesome things for the community. In fact, we love it so much that we wanted to give you another outlet for your talents, one that lets you shine like the rock star that you are.
Here’s what you can create with our UGC system:
The system supports image and video embedding, so you can make great media-rich pages right here on the EQHammer site. Once you've created something and your content has passed through our moderation checkpoint, we'll give you a cool contributor badge for your efforts. Check out our press release for all the details.
If you’re a Landmark player and builder, pay special attention - we’re giving away codes for Prime Grappling Hooks and all you have to do is create some content. Be one of the first 100 authors to submit approved content and we’ll send you a code! There’s no contest to win, no random number gods to battle - just create something and get your code.
A few quick guidelines:
Now that we’ve given you the ability to create all kinds of cool things to promote your Landmark builds, share your EQ franchise knowledge, show off your Player Studio creations (for EQ2 at the moment, and Landmark in the future) and more...go! Become the rock star you were destined to be. We’ll be in your corner. We promise to regularly highlight and promote our community member contributions. No more getting lost in a sea of forum posts or trying to get anyone to notice your solitary blog - we’re here for you.
So, make your first contribution today and get your grappler code. Rock on!
Karen became hopelessly hooked on EverQuest when she wandered into Norrath for the first time, immediately fell off one of the Kelethin platforms, and had to ask a Bard to find her mangled corpse. She's gained a few skills since, and logged more hours than she cares to count playing all kinds of MMOs. The EverQuest franchise remains her favorite. Relying on her druidic wisdom, she pens a weekly column, Ask the Druid, every Thursday. Send your questions to her at shayalyn [at] tentonhammer.com.
