This is true... I've had SO MANY warnings, been banned a few times too, one of them was actually a permaban yet here I am!

I think the main issue is that people aren't really interested in game development here.

I don't know, I think it's more like; we ARE interested in game development... we're just really lazy and can't be arsed making anything, except the few people that actually do make stuff, lol.

I actually spend probably 20-40 hours a week doing gamedev in my spare time, but I more or less stopped posting about it here because it seemed like almost no one cared.

We're too desperate and we know you'll stick around, lel! You're also a pretty cool guy most of the time.

This place is definitely high in british concentration as of these recent years, I'm personally from Australia and as a result I understand entirely the sort of humor Amy refers to, most of us are descended from convicts from England or somewhere in Britain.

And Amy is definitely right in that this place did use to have a higher concentration of dickiness, through it's recession came value for what remained.

As for things to make the forum cool, Having to ask to get a game logo added each time I upload a game (in the completed games section), or just wanna rebrand it seems a bit silly, maybe we can get a widget to make that feature manual?

Beyond that, the way images aren't auto-scaled is a bit tiresome to deal with.

Both of those may be more effort than your willing to go to, just my throws in the ring.

I say I'm newer, truthfully I've been around since 2008 but I was pretty inactive back then, mostly I just made an account to hound Dargor about his large party script.

Didn't become the active (as one allows themselves to get) fella most of you know me as until 2013 or something.

I did try to implement image scaling a while back, not sure why it never worked. I'll add it to my todo list.

The reason I didn't make image uploading automatic is that a few years ago I made a whole website for this place with an image uploader, resource manager, and various other things. It was well used and I thought it was quite nice, but I was naive and didn't know as much as I should have done about web security - we got hacked and lost everything.

So I guess a lack of confidence in my own abilities is holding us back somewhat.

We had an integrated MediaWiki, integrated *chan style image board, pastebin and everything.

In fact goddamn I was proud of that site. I can't believe I lost it all.

Anyway the long term plan was to convert to Xenforo, Venetia bought the software and everything. But somehow it never happened. That would have given us so much functionality.

Aww sorry. You're like the one guy who cared, so thanks for that! I'll come back when I have more art to show, but I've mainly been doing editing in the last few months and just switched to programming, so there's a lot of invisible work that's hard to show off.

I follow your stuff as close as I can, on twitter and here when you did decide to post.

I think this is another time the like or +1 feature would be appreciated.

I think I'll leave trying to implement anything big and see if Ven can let us use the Xenforo keys. Maybe it's time for a change.
