Well, I did post a bit on the forums on there and stuff. Anyways, back to the topic of the thread - Like Cheesecurd, I was also a player on SmallWorlds, who happened to be a helper/moderator/tester as well. My experience with scheduled meet and greets is that they weren't enjoyable at all. You had people constantly asking the same questions spamming, and just being right out obnoxious. I was a fan of the more spontaneous meetings where players and staff can actually have a proper conversation without the massive crowd. They also made for much better memories.
@cheesecurd Yeah, running into staff members on SW used to be more common, but after some things that happened in 2015 that lead to a staff member being harassed on FB, they needed to limit the player/staff interactions, which was understandable, but also sucked.
