Valerie Massey, senior director of PR and communication from EVE Online developer CCP, will take a humorous approach to discussing community management in, "Everything I Ever Needed to Know About Online Communities I Learned from Jurassic Park," a talk that will illustrate the ins and outs of the job using examples from the classic Stephen Spielberg film and its sequels.

There seems to be a gap between "talking about" and "applying".


Someone (^) must be feeling rather incompetent these days. The real humor will be seeing if the crowd can keep a straight face listening to her talk about being good at managing a community after this massive failure.

Also you must remember that Eve originally a PVP game and there were a lot of heated arguments between "carebears" and "griefers", in fact most rage quitting was coming from such arguments. I think it's where the Jurassic Park comparison comes from, but you'll have to ask her when she'll come back.

I for one am taking heart. We all know how it ends. The dinosaurs are destined to rule new eden! Our prophet Valerie demands it.

I want to reiterate how humorous it is that CCP will be attending a conference where one of the sessions will be entitled What can you do when your social or MMO game community revolts against you?

Everyone who is cancelling their accounts should also contact organisations like these and tell them why they are doing so. The entire industry should know about what is happening here.

Don't worry CCP are fast becoming a Joke in the industry. The only event's they'll be attending next year will be "How to start a new career in trash collection"


I don't think thats an option for most of CCP, they just throw it into the volcano over there.

Seriously - where is the conference and can we get people to Picket outside?

As a very supportive community, we'll give them a 'live demonstration' of community unrest and allow CCP to demonstrate how to quell it. Right? This **** just went from virtual to REAL. THE PLAYERS WILL NEVER BE SILENCED!

When you think it couldn't go any better/worse, there's always some ironic twist that spices things up another notch. Razz

OK... Heres an approach on recent events, using jurassic park as an example.

CCP Might be the T-Rex, But the players are the Raptors, and were nice and friendly and not a problem, until the AUR cost of powering the fence is realised to be too much, and the Raptors are able to escape. 1 Raptor might not be a problem, but 10 ****ed of raptors and the T-Rex is fraked.

Quite an interesting topic in the present times.

However, I think that many of you looking to it as a joke should re-access the content and possibly even the goal of that summit.

What I gathered from the points to be discussed was a meeting to go over the mechanisms in order for the companyto do whatever it wants to its customer base and still come out on top. The reference to "Jurassic Park" should be examined more critically. My impression is that we, the customers, are being compared to creatures with the brain the size of a peanut, read that "dumb" and easily corraled like a herd of livestock. This is outrageous in and of itself. At the least the customers of CCP should consider it incendiary and at worst more justification to stop patronizing the company altogether.

So CCP Pann who wrote an overdue apology and is asking for parley (and totally missed WHY WE ARE MAD in her post) is holding a talk about community management?

Thats just great, CCP is now trolling GDC apparently.

So you believe that there is an equal number of incompetent people without degrees than there are with?

If so, you are ignorant. Degrees may not guarantee competence, but the knowledge that a degree indicates sure helps to prevent incompetence.


There's a whole series of fallacies there.

You should probably go to college, to learn what they are.
