Should We Tweet?

We’ve got a new poll about Twitter. Allie and I do not currently tweet, but we understand a lot of folks do. We want to know if it would be valuable to you folks for +1 Gaming to use Twitter or not.

For the comments: if we tweeted, what sorts of tweets would you like to see?

Should +1 Gaming Tweet?
  • I don't really use Twitter. (45%, 17 Votes)
  • Please, don't. (24%, 9 Votes)
  • Unequivocally, yes! (13%, 5 Votes)
  • Sure, I'd like it. (11%, 4 Votes)
  • Either way. (8%, 3 Votes)

Facebook Integration

The corporate office (me) has coordinated with marketing (me) to task our IT department (also me) with a new website. Marketing is pretty hot on this whole social 2.0 webworking business, and got IT to spec out some Spacebook polygration or somesuch.

Anyway, IT asked me, customer relations, to do some surveys and see how this will impact our brand perception and customer preferencing trends. I don’t exactly understand the MyFaces and whatnot, so I got my three year-old to work out some questions the young people might relate to.

What Kinds of Facebook Integration Would You Like?
  • A link to the store's Facebook page is fine, but nothing more. (32%, 12 Votes)
  • The works: login with my Facebook profile, like buttons, see what my friends like, etc. (24%, 9 Votes)
  • Some like buttons would be nice, but leave my profile's info out of it. (16%, 6 Votes)
  • I really hate seeing Facebook everywhere, and would rather nothing at all. (16%, 6 Votes)
  • I'd like to use my Facebook profile for comments (and maybe a forum?), but leave my friends list out of it. (8%, 3 Votes)
  • Is a "Spacebook" like one of those iPads, but for astronauts? (5%, 2 Votes)

Chronometric Specificity

Our planned hours (especially their lateness) were a big topic, and late hours battled for the top spot on the Important Things poll. This week I want to take a finer toothed comb through this one.

If you would be so kind to let us know: when would you most often stop by +1 Gaming? I broke it up into two polls, since most folks have somewhat different schedules between weekdays and weekends.

When Would You Stop By on a Weekday?
  • Evening, 5 pm to 8 pm (51%, 36 Votes)
  • Night, 8 pm to 10 pm (24%, 17 Votes)
  • Afternoon, before 5 pm (18%, 13 Votes)
  • Midday, 11 am to 1 pm (4%, 3 Votes)
  • Late night, after 10 pm (3%, 2 Votes)
  • Early (before 11 am) (0%, 0 Votes)

This week’s poll is fairly lightweight. We’re brewing some more weighty fare, but it’s taking a little while with all the contractor business we’re dealing with. Thanks for your patience.

Bulletin Board Options

Someone brought up bulletin boards on the Facebook page, and I thought it’d make a good poll – or pair of polls, as it turns out. The first poll is limited to 2 choices to tease out your favorites, because all of the above would spread things out too far.

Important note on that second poll: I’m looking for what you’d want to be able to find, not what you’d want to post. I’m assuming you’d want a few open discussion choices on a digital board, too.

And as always, post any extra thoughts in the comments.

How Would You Network with Other Gamers? (Pick Up to 2)
  • A forum on this website (46%, 27 Votes)
  • A physical bulletin board in the store (32%, 19 Votes)
  • The Discussions section of the Facebook page (12%, 7 Votes)
  • A third-party website (MeetUp, NOLARPG Forum, Obsidian Portal, etc.) (10%, 6 Votes)

Total Voters: 34

What Would You Use a Bulletin Board For?

  • Find events related to gaming or geek culture (movie nights, concerts, book clubs, etc.) (28%, 23 Votes)
  • Trade used games and accessories (18%, 15 Votes)
  • Personal stuff (roommate, project help, convention travel buddy, etc.) (10%, 8 Votes)
  • Find for-pay services or events (minis painters, comic stores, etc.) (9%, 7 Votes)
