Affiliated research area: Social Ranks, Online Game Design Community, Multimethod Analysis Techniques, Information Dissemination, Participation.

Description:

The study explores social ranks, participations and knowledge dissemination within an online game design community. How social ranks have evolved and supported the overall participation over time is described. We doubt whether higher social rank members drive the community in terms of forming effective idea and knowledge sharing. A multi-method analysis technique using content analysis, qualitative interview, and server level quantitative data of users in Sploder.com can be used to draw a concrete conclusion.
