It seems as though we have an experimental platform running on Steemit for creating communities, and since the most active, most interesting community – in a cultural sense – I've had the pleasure of interacting with on the platform is the role-playing game community, I thought it was a good idea to go ahead, get ahead of the curve, and put one together.
Of course, the drawback of the way the current system is architected is that there is no easy way to determine if a community already exists which satisfies needs.
I'm going to move forward on the basic assumption, "if you build it, they will come." Or they won't, in which case I've blown 3 STEEM for no good end.
Honestly, not the worst expenditure of a cryptocommodity I've ever made.
So now the community exists and is accessible by going to the beta interface, https://beta.steemit.com/trending/hive-194041 . I fully expect that URL to change significantly as things go, since the implicit Trending is just in the way and the URL without it resolves to nothing.
Unfortunately, I do not yet see an interface available through SteemPeak, but I have no doubt that they are putting together something at this very moment which will have a decent, integrated search system, check for name collisions (even if it let you proceed without caring, because it appears that every Community gets its own unique category number), and all the other goodies one associates with active Community systems.
In the meantime, let's play with what we have.
