GreyFuss,

Facebook has become THE way to simply justify the popularity of something. If you don't have a thousand "Likes" you're just not relevant. That's how a lot of people, including potential investors, see it.

I agree with you that Facebook is not the only way to gauge interest in something but since it's become the simplest, it's been adopted as the new "nielson box". People see a page has 10,000 likes and infer that means it actually has 100K people who like it! (Factoring in the people who would if they had fb accounts or people who have them but don't "like" pages).

And to further complicate things, it's not just the number of likes, but the amount of time it took to get them. The faster we can raise 1,000 likes on our page, the more of an impact it will have.

I agree that the system isn't perfect but I'm working with what I've got to prove relevance to the people who can make things happen that I alone cannot. If they told me to prove demand for something by starting an email campaign, you bet I'd be posting about sending emails!

-Bryan

Hi Bryan

I wish you the best in this unique venture. Sorry I can't help you out personally. I don't know nothing about this "Like" FaceBook stuff but if there is no risk involved in "Liking" something there I will talk with my daughter to see if she belongs and have her do this "Like" for you. But like I said if by her "Liking" something puts any burden on her page at all then I won't ask her.

It's a harmless "like" Greyfuss. Thanks for helping!

Thank you, GreyFuss! "Liking" is the act of clicking a button on a Facebook page that shows you like it. I really appreciate your support!

I hate Facebook but I've conceded to it to keep some contact up with distant relatives & friends which I would otherwise have no contact with! So I've 'liked'! smile

BWiegele....I have one question...

Most games need codes or they need to be registered on the sites...

How is this going to work? Especially if you need a code to play the game.....Will this be a form of pirating? duh

Thank You

Darleen, Bryan is a developer. He would never pirate or promote any form of piracy. This is completely legitimate.

Thanks, Ana for the info

But I still don't understand how some games that require a registration key will work for a free download....

Thanks

What about games Like Sherlock Holmes ?

Darleen, I will flag Bryan but since this is his idea he is trying to get backing for I am not sure he is going to divulge publicly how it will work until he gets it off the ground. I can however tell you, it's completely legit and very doable if he can prove he has enough of an audience.

Thanks, Ana

It will be a first, and very interesting how it will work, since so many games need a Key to play the game...

Hi Darleen,

We want to keep things as simple as possible so we will not require any type of key or code to access the games. You will simply log into the website with your user ID and play!

I'm currently working on a FAQ to answer as many of these concerns as possible. I'll provide the link once I get it up.

I hope that answers your question!

-Bryan

BWiegele..>.That is amazing if it will work...On one of my threads I was questioning selling ,and trading keys, and or codes to download, and play games....I was also thinking about a site that you would pay a fee once a years to do just that for all games.

Wonderful concept you are working on... thumbsup

I've put together a FAQ page to help everyone understand my goal. Please let me know if anything is still unclear.

http://www.bigtimegames.com/faq.html

Thank you so much for your support! I know we can make this happen and change how games are presented to everyone!
