Happy Wednesday everyone!
The marketplace has grown exponentially in the short time that it has been around. We’ve gone from a few developers to a vibrant and thriving community of content creators in a matter of a few short years. To celebrate this, we have a surprise for you, the Unreal Engine community. We are giving you one of the slots we use to feature content, to do with what you will. This post will remain open for the next month, during which time we ask that you collaborate as a whole to determine what you want to feature in that slot.
Now, we aren’t talking specifically about a particular pack, that would be a tall order to fill. Rather, we want you to determine, as a community, how you want that featured content to be determined. Some examples to get you started:
Highest selling asset pack of the month/all time
Highest rated pack of all time
Monthly rotating featured (Community Choice)
Randomly/rolling the dice
Specific themed items
This list is not meant to be the options taken, merely a sample of what could be suggested. We invite everyone, community members and content creators alike, to come together and brainstorm to decide upon what you think would be the best way to go about featuring those who have helped to make this marketplace what it is today. At the end of the month, we will take the top 5 ideas listed here at our discretion to make a poll for everyone to vote upon, determining the final method to populate the featured content space. Having said this, if one idea is unanimously decided upon, that decision will take precedence over the voting process.
There are a few rules we’d like you to keep in mind during this process:
- Follow the Rules and Code of Conduct for the forums when posting on the forums.
- Respect fellow community members, content creators, and Epic staff.
- Do not disparage ideas, especially as a means to garner support for another. Having a negative view is perfectly acceptable, however do so in a civil and respectful manner.
- Do not spam to promote a suggestion.
It is especially important during this that we maintain a civil and respectful space, where everyone feels that they can be respected and heard. At any time, if you violate our rules, we reserve the right to take action, up to and including permanent bans depending upon the infraction in question. In addition, should this get out of hand or become a flame war, we reserve the right to close the thread and revoke the featured slot to be used for other purposes.
