Forum News / Archive Board
« on: February 21, 2017, 01:48:26 AM »
Alright, went ahead and moved what appear to be inactive projects to the new archive board. If you're a developer of one of those projects and are still working or think that a project listed as "active" should be moved to the archives, please let me know.

Other Projects / Teaser

Oh, you're new, ain't yah?

Yeah, you're a Pilgrim, fresh from the tower no less. You ain't even got a face, boy.

Well, tell you what. I can fix you right up. Tell me what you remember...from your other life.

Forum News / Subforums to be up for deletion/archive
« on: January 27, 2017, 11:50:57 PM »
While I don't particularly like the idea, I might consider archiving several subforums that have possibly been abandoned and removing them from the front page. I don't like possibly dead projects showing up, since it gives the impression the site is not being maintained. No content would actually be removed, and would be able to be restored if the content creator came back, and of course I would check with each content creator before actually performing any of the archiving in case there was a misunderstanding.

Now, to be sure, the forums I'm talking about are ones that have not seen activity in several months and/or the content creator has not been seen in a similar span of time. I'll produce a list later this week detailing which subforums I'm talking about, and we'll see how it goes from there.

Forum News / Renewal
« on: December 17, 2016, 09:15:26 PM »
Domain name came up for renewal today, and I decided to not renew it. I hate you all and you all suck.

But seriously, I'm very pleased with the progress these forums have made, the small yet fairly active community you've all built, and the projects that you all churn out. As long as I'm able, I will continue to fund and keep this site running, maybe even expand if it ever comes to that. But for now, everyone keep on doing what you do. The site wouldn't exist without you.

Forum News / Rule #2: Useless Posts
« on: December 05, 2016, 05:16:05 AM »
I've been deliberating on this one for awhile, but I think its time to make a decision.

From now on, the following posts are no longer allowed:

*Posts explicitly asking for an update (use PMs if you want but not posts)
*Posts saying a project is dead (from users, obviously not developers)

These are not helpful posts, they provide nothing to the developer other than frustration, and I frankly don't like looking at them myself. You will get 2 warnings and then an increasingly long temporary ban for each repeated incident. Permabans will be handed out at my discretion if I feel it is necessary.

Now to be clear, the posts asking for an update do not include those directly asking a developer when an update is going to be rolled out on a developer post about new updates that doesn't specify a date. I think that is a legitimate question to ask and potentially helpful for everyone involved. What I do mean are posts like:

"When are you going to update the game?"


"Are there any updates?"

If a developer has updated information, they will give it to you. There's generally not going to be a situation in which a developer has an update and doesn't share it with their users. Therefore, there's no sense in making those posts.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Forum News / Happy Thanksgiving

Just wanted to say happy holidays to you all and to keep up the good work.

Forum News / Spam
« on: September 11, 2016, 03:47:49 PM »
Sorry about the spamsplosion guys. It has been resolved. Thanks for the reports and PM's about it (was asleep until now).

Going to probably start looking for a global mod to take care of things when I can't, in case issues like this arise again.

Forum News / Legible Text
« on: September 08, 2016, 10:23:10 PM »
Whenever posting, please keep in mind that any colors or fonts that you use might impact the readability of your post. I'd heavily discourage the excessive use of non-standard colors or fonts, as the entire point of the forum is to get information across to other people. Making that difficult defeats the point of the post.

Continued misuse of the colors/font feature will result in warnings and possibly suspensions if the warnings are not heeded. Thank you.

Forum News / Quest Board
« on: September 08, 2016, 10:20:47 PM »
Alright, the Quest board and all the relevant posts and child boards have been moved over there. Please let me know if I've moved a topic that I shouldn't have, or if I didn't move a topic I should have.

Feature Request / Quest Games
« on: September 08, 2016, 04:12:47 AM »
What do you all think about a board specifically for games made in Quest? The Other Board works for it well enough, I suppose, but one specifically for Quest Games might be useful.

Other Projects / Maybe Nothing...Maybe Something?
« on: August 29, 2016, 06:06:43 PM »
I am probably going to regret posting this, but I've recently started messing with Quest (read: last night), and while it isn't necessarily the best for building a game, I've found it to be flexible enough (at least after I ripped into its inner workings) for screwing around with. It has taken care of a vast majority of the stuff I don't want to code, leaving me with a slightly restricted but otherwise open canvas for testing some features I had planned years ago.

Attached is a screencap of me messing with random item generation, which seems to be working pretty well, I'd say, along with some reactive text to the different metrics. Going to continue to extend and push the limits of Quest, see what I can do it with it. I have a lot of features to test out, see if they can be implemented easily within Quest, but I'm mostly just having fun with it.

So yeah, this might turn out to be something, it might not. Too early to say for sure.

That being said, if people need some help with the more advanced features of Quest, I can at least tell you what I know from the whopping one day I messed with it.

Forum News / Forum Theme
« on: August 28, 2016, 10:38:58 PM »
Polling to see what themes people predominately use (yes, you should have a choice to pick which theme you use) when viewing the site. I'd appreciate as many people answering the poll as possible.

Forum News / Keep Up the Good Work
« on: August 26, 2016, 05:35:26 PM »
The forum is seeing record numbers across the board in terms of activity, we've gotten some great new games in the last few weeks, and everyone seems to be doing a great job overall. Just wanted to say thanks and to ask that everyone keep up the good work.

Project Discussion / A Reminder
« on: August 24, 2016, 12:47:20 AM »
While I do appreciate forum users utilizing this board to ask questions, always remember to pay a visit to Atticus' site and drop a comment there too.

Forum News / Age Restrictions
« on: August 22, 2016, 07:56:42 PM »
It has come to my attention that there are users that do not meet the age restrictions (which are enforced when you register for an account) to use this site. I'm going to have a discussion with them, see if the report is true (to the best of my knowledge), and then most likely remove them from the site. Anyone that I find to not meet the minimum requirements of this site (which are extremely short, be over 18, that's all I require) will be removed with no chance for appeal until they adequately meet those requirements. I don't do this because I want to, but because I don't want the site to get shut down.

Now, if that person were to come back under a CLEARLY DIFFERENT account and not be stupid and tell STRANGERS ON THE INTERNET their AGE, then I couldn't adequately prove that they are underage and using my site, removing any obligations from me as an administrator to ensure compliance. Not that this course of action is recommended, as you're still underage and viewing content not suitable, which means you put me and possibly other users at risk.

Despite that, I'll thank the users that have brought this matter to my attention, I don't want you to think that your diligence in these matters is not appreciated, as this is a very serious matter that could get the forums shut down.
