I've been thinking a lot since joining this forum about how LBP will be able to cater for communities.
I personally would like to see a guild or community feature added, where we could post levels made by our forum community under the LBPC name, or with any group of friends for that matter.
I'm aware that it would be impossible to have a 'Guild level' where everyone could just drop in and out, as LBP can only have 4 people per level, but I'd really like to see a guild chat room type option where you could walk around with your sackboy and just talk, and also decorate the walls how you want.
It's a stretch I know, but with a game that is so community driven, it would be a welcome addition.
Does anyone else have ideas on how LBP could be an even better community experience on top of what we already know?

We all want the 'more then 4 people in a room (not level)' idea. It's been asked in the interview I think, we can only hope.

As for the guild? It would be very cool, but there is ways around it, like just crediting everybody involved and putting LBPC central stickers inside the level, and LBPC on the tags and description :)

Can it list everyone's name who worked on the level? And can it link to that person's profile or other levels? Does anyone know this?

You could then put posters on the walls advertising your levels and offering them.

There should also be links like to a homepage of the user who made the level your in that will then show all the levels they have made and give you an option to rate the creator rather than just the level so to distinguish the people who get more space to create the levels.

I think it will definatly list the original publisher.. and it would be stupid for it not to list the contributers, but the only person who might know this at the moment, is Cartman :)
