What is happening in Gameful land?

With ongoing interest in the Gameful community, especially in the last year and a half, our secret HQ feels a bit packed. The current platform (Wordpress/Buddypress blog) is not well designed to handle lively conversations nor is it easy to use. While change is never easy, we're switching platforms to Ning in response to many of your comments about our current platform's shortcomings. 

So, you're probably wondering, what does this mean for my day-to-day Gameful experience?  It means a few things:
 
1) On June 18th the new platform will be available to the public and the surprise announcement will be made on June 19th. In the meantime we will slowly invite the current Gameful community into the new site. We will be turning the current site into a read-only archive that you can always access at archive.gameful.org
 
2) In addition to a site that’s easier to use, making it easier to stay engaged on the conversations that matter most to you. We will also be running all challenges on a dedicated challenge platform, giving even more visibility to the Gameful community. 
 
3) An opportunity to volunteer as “unofficial” staff members. You’ll be recognized in the community, and the new platform should make your participation as easy as possible. Check this out in the Classifieds.
 
4) The games will continue! We're going to be using these new features to offer you more Gameful opportunities (and challenges!) to build and discuss games that will change the world.
