So folks I am wandering what ideas you all have on how we can grow GOL to get more visitors and have more people to chat with?

Currently we are on G+, Facebook, Twitter, RebelMouse and Tumblr.

I regularly post original content on reddit and lxer and I am wandering if anyone else knows good places that would be willing to post links to our news?

I think that group on Steam or IRC will be good ideas :)

There's also the Desura group!

We're 126 strong there :D

I'm not too sure how much an IRC channel would help grow the community, but a Steam group, definitely now Steam Linux is upon us, would be a good idea. I post in many other forums, so I'll keep a link in my signature to help out a bit. Providing I'm not breaking any of their rules.

Thanks guys signature links on your favourite forums help as well :)

We do have a Steam group - I need to be more active on it I think!

I did have a quick Google search for it, but no luck. Would you be so kind and provide a link? :p

Events are very interesting things in groups on Steam. Maybe organize a some challenges for users in free time (weekends) ?

What sort of challenges? Would need to be interesting.

I don't know, we can to think something. E.g. regulary Team Fortress 2 matches with our closed ranking on the group page or other short contest.

I mean that the game must be free to play for all gamers and available on Steam.
