Coludik is launching today the gaming shout, a simple way to reach out to other members of the platform. The shout is a geolocalized message that you place where it makes sense to you (a megaphone shaped button has been added on the map to shout). It is attracting (pulsing icon) and gives you chances to be read. Its visibility on the map is temporary (7 days) but it will continue to live under your profile if you don't delete it. It is possible to use one of 7 proposed categories (one of them being a catch-all) for a better reading of the map.
This feature is an experiment and I think it is not done anywhere else, at least not in the board gaming world. Its goal is to further increase interactions between users and the notion of a strong community. A discussion board may have been desired by some, but it is not a path I want to explore.
The shout is probably not perfect, so I would like to make it evolve according to your wishes. Do not hesitate to submit your ideas. First, you could tell me if a shout should appear in your notification center in addition to the map, or if those who support Coludik could receive a notification email when a user shouts near them. The future of shouting is yours.
