  3. 3. Create games in your TV Room to engage the community in your room. Consider: •  Trivia •  Quizzes •  Games. •  Caption This Game •  Fill in the Blanks •  Hypothetical - which character would you take to a desert island? CONTENT IDEAS

More ideas are: CONTENT IDEAS
  5. 5. When creating trivia keep in mind: •  Accessibility – make it easy to begin with so people feel confident to answer. Make the answer concrete and something people can answer in under 3 words. •  Context – if you’re doing a hard question, add an “ADVANCED” label so the community don’t get discouraged if they don’t know it. •  Be consistent – if you’re doing a trivia night each week, make sure you do it on the same day. •  Promote it – advertise it in the room over the previous few days, add it to your room description and add a ping about it. TRIVIA NIGHTS
  6. 6. •  Check out the room each week and see what people are talking about. •  Can you create content, a meme, a quiz or trivia inspired by these comments? WHAT ARE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT?
  7. 7. Get people excited about show day! Post in the afternoon before the show with one of the big cliffhanger questions to get people speculating. It is a good idea to @mention your room regulars. This means, when people come to the room they have something to talk about immediately. Example: “Who will fight Tyrion’s match? @Sara, @Mary what you do think?” Chat during the show Ask open questions, respond to other users and keep the conversation flowing. Send a ping 1 hour before the show to remind people it's on, or to engage in the conversation you posted in the afternoon. CHAT DURING THE SHOW
  8. 8. The conversation doesn’t just need to happen during the show! The next day Discuss the show with an open question - what moment made you laugh, cry or get angry? It doesn't need to be the end of show cliffhanger. Example: "this was my favourite quote from Jon Snow last night. What was yours?" A few days later in the week: Between the episode, consider content that is around the theme of the show - this could be trivia, a hypothetical discussion about characters, behind the scenes gossip, or related to the show world. Example: “Would you live in Mereen or North of the wall?” CHAT DURING THE WEEK
  9. 9. •  Be a room host, to encourage people in the room to talk to each other. Actively encourage other members to interact to break the barriers of lurking and liking. •  For Example: “I’m not sure of the answer- but I maybe @Toby would know!” INTRODUCE ROOMIES TO EACH OTHER
  10. 10. •  If you see new people commenting in your room, do a post to welcome them. This will make them feel a part of your community and more confident to post. •  Ask them a friendly question to get to know them. •  Don’t forget to tag them in your welcome. •  Example: “Welcome to @Mary who has joined the room! Mary, who is your favourite character in the show?” WELCOME NEWBIES
  11. 11. •  Consider how you will reward your community for getting involved! This helps people feel appreciated and want to return. •  Examples of this is Comment of the Week, Fan Of The Week, or Trivia Leaderboard. SHARE THE LOVE
  12. 12. •  Keep in mind that some people some want a conversation. Some just want to comment. Learn the difference in your community and don’t engage. KNOW WHEN TO BACK OFF In this example, this user didn’t want to engage in any conversation about the topic, just wanted to say their opinion:
  13. 13. •  You can report someone’s comment. When it recieves multiple reports, will be fed through to Beamly staff to review. REPORT INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS
  14. 14. Beamly has a set of Community Guidelines, which we expect all members to abide by: http://click.beamly.com/beamly-community-guidelines/ COMMUNITY GUIDELINES A FRIENDLY REMINDER: If someone is behaving inappropriately, often a gentle reminder of the guidelines is all that is needed: Hi, NAME.
