I'm telling all my relatives about WQ. Meanwhile, I'm trying to get my mom and dad to like WQ. :/

Tee hee. I feel so proud of myself. :mrgreen: In science, we're doing these "museum" projects due in March. My group's general topic is canines, and we're thinking about doing evolution of the modern dog.
Wait, it gets better.
I was telling a group-mate about a chart comparing and contrasting wolves and modern dogs <About Wolves-Wolf Info- Comparison Chart>. I pulled up WolfQuest and immediately my groupmates were hooked. Yippee.

My friends, that is why Christmas exists. To buy stuff that you wouldn't over the course of the year. EDIT: I really like that Twitter idea. Maybe there could also be a Facebook and every week we send out facts about wolves or photos about them, etc.

Having a Twitter group or account setup sounds like a good idea- you never know who will follow and if they try the game, the better promotion there'll be. I'm aware there are numerous WolfQuest groups and pages on Facebook, but there is an official WQ group created by loboLoco: https://www.facebook.com/groups/19909329025/

It's not updated often, but maybe it could be revived. ^^ As far as an official WolfQuest page, I'm not entirely sure whether or not one has been made by a team member.
I have often told my friends and relatives about WolfQuest.
Nothing interesting happens.

Perhaps we could get Google on board. Google does advertisements using Chrome that pop up sometimes, Maybe we could get them to do a Wolfquest ad? I am working on a user made one :P Thinking about posting it on Youtube, Might get us some new members.

I think I remember seeing this thread a while ago, but maybe we could revamp the user- made commercial, or create like a WQ team to help organize ideas for funding? Sorta like this, but like a program. (That's so vague because I thought of it literally five seconds ago.)
I'm not sure if this has been suggested already, but I wonder if we can create an app for WolfQuest people can buy? It can have facts about wolves, and possible updates on stuff, etc.

A WolfQuest app has been suggested multiple times. Here's a thread regarding the matter - http://www.wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=68093 - and Cana's response (from September of this year), if you don't want to read through all of it.
Update: Eduweb would love to make an app, but if we are going to release one, it has to be good (and have a point), meaning it would have to be a separate project that would cost a fair amount of money. There's still a chance (they've developed different iphone apps before), but it cost a lot more money than they anticipated, so the basic funding would have to be there. That, and it probably wouldn't be a free app because of all the funding it would take to create it. But since the WolfQuest computer game and forum are free, I don't think it would be awful to charge to download a smartphone app. So we'll see, but again, don't get your hopes up too high.

That's what I thought. Thanks for clarifying, though. :D

I was planning to make a WQ tribute for YouTube. Maybe, when people see it, they will join and help the community grow! But, the posters is a good idea.

Yes, Posters are a great idea. Especially for schools, Since WolfQuest is educational.

I like this idea in particular. Along with the WQ tribute video on YT. If it's possible, and I am not sure if it was suggested before, some WQ adds can be made? I've seen a lot of adds that belong to great games such as Call of Duty, World of tanks, Battlefield, etc, on different sites?

Currently, me and some friends of mine try to spread the word in my school about WQ at the biology class. I mean, we are currently learning about wolves, and whatnot. So I thought it would be good to show WQ to the world.

I should tell my 5th grade Science teacher! One of our topics was animals and food cycles, and a wolf-elk relationship could help kids understand it more. This may sound juvenile, but I feel so excited to see what will happen!
